Lately I've been on a quest to acquire a big set of figures for D&D. I have a pretty fair amount of GW Warhammer Fantasy Orcs and Goblins as well as Ogres, Undead, etc. My hope is that next summer I can run some classic D&D in a big Hirst Arts 3D dungeon. Then I'll have all that stuff available for an eventual game that I plan to run for my five kids ... that is still a few years out though ... but the figs are standard D&D with the group in the meantime as well. So its really a long term thing with hopefully multiple benefits as far as versitile gaming opportunity and really good return on investment for me in terms of just lots of fun with the same gaming material. 

Anyway I also noticed something really cool along these lines. Wargame Factory Plastics has announced that they are going to be doing orcs!! At first I was like ... meh ... I have tons o' orcs ... cool as it is to see em doing that ... not going to benefit me much. But then I saw their sculpts and they would make perfect D&D hobgoblins. So  I could do a big hobgoblin force. This also got me thinking about some of the WHFB fan-dexes and the  possibility of a counts as hobgoblin army for WHFB, etc.

You could get a lot of mileage out of the historicals too for bandits, fighter and rogue type PCs, even wizards.

ya really you could. I saw they have a really good deal on Saxon's and celts right now and I'm tempted to pick some up just for that reason. Let alone the use for their actual intended historical gaming purpose.
