Build and Play

While prepainted plastic minis have returned to stores, for a few years there it was hard to find minis on the non-secondary market (i.e. gaming stores that specialized in minis or eBay). Lego minifigs made a nice substitute, being relatively cheap, easy to find and customize, and fun to coordinate with a Lego dungeon. And between Knights, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter there are a lot of fantasy figures to go around.

And, y’know, it’s a great excuse to buy more Lego.
