1. How many miniatures do you own?
~5,000 DDM and another 1,000-2,000 others

2. Which do you use: pre-painted, paint your own, commission another painter?
Painted and unpainted. Most of my minis are the DDM painted ones.

3. Which miniatures do you most commonly use in games? (excluding player characters)
DDM.

4. Which manufacturer is your favorite and why?
DDM. Relatively cheap, flexible plastic doesn't break, and they have what I use most, fantasy characters and monsters.

1. How many miniatures do you own?
~1500

2. Which do you use: pre-painted, paint your own, commission another painter?
Mostly DDM pre-painted. I like them looking good, and I gave up years ago after realizing that I simply cannot paint faces.

3. Which miniatures do you most commonly use in games? (excluding player characters)
DDM

4. Which manufacturer is your favorite and why?

I like the old Ral Partha minis, as I grew up with those and that's the style that sticks out in my mind.

1. How many miniatures do you own?

Today I own just over 8000.

2. Which do you use: pre-painted, paint your own, commission another painter?
Probably 7500 prepainted and 500 I painted myself over the years. I also have a collection of about 10 figures I have commisioned for painting. They are all the "final Boss" type characters.


3. Which miniatures do you most commonly use in games? (excluding player characters)

Mostly prepainted miniatures. However I do have a rule that if you play at my table you must use a self painted mini for your PC.

4. Which manufacturer is your favorite and why?
Ral partha is my favorite due mostly to the fact that I started with them. I would say the Plasti Crack of DDM is a close second due to the low cost but I am very interested in the Paizo miniatures. I love some of the sculpts they have done.

5. Add any other questions you have for others
What is your favorite single figure and Why?

My favorite single figure is of a cleric that was painted to be an evil cleric of the sun god. (Random Sun God, no particular version) The reason being is that we painted him as we would have painted a cleric of the sun god, then took pictures and used photoshop to create a negative of the painted figure. I paid someone to repaint it using the negative image. The finished product was Great!

That sounds awesome, I'm stealing that idea!

1. How many miniatures do you own?

200-250

2. Which do you use: pre-painted, paint your own, commission another painter?

A mix. Mostly pre-painted DDM, rebased Mage Knight, and 20 or so painted miniatures (though I've decided to start buying metal minis exclusively).

3. Which miniatures do you most commonly use in games? (excluding player characters)

DDM and Mage Knight.

4. Which manufacturer is your favorite and why?

Reaper, DDM, then Mage Knight (though I would guess that the new Pathfinder minis will bump DDM down one).
