Miniatures?
#1
Beholder 
So we've started a 4e D&D game with some friends.  We're very short on miniatures, though.  Anyone have any insight on how to get a starter set of miniatures?

FWIW, I have no interest in painting my own.

Would really love to get a good human druid/lynx combo.

Well you're kind of outta luck if you don't want to paint at all. You can always just use bare figures without paint. I would recommend Reaper Miniatures Bones Series. https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Bones They are affordable and great starting miniatures.

Painting in itself is not difficult to just get base colors on the miniature. If you want a highly detailed paint job then it gets difficult. Painting can be a fun and rewarding hobby though if you get into it. I love painting miniatures now. And trust me my first paint jobs were rough. Extremely rough.

Lynx (well Bobcat but close enough) https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/l...wn/P02399B
Human Druid (female) https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/h...down/77069
Human Druid (male) https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/t...down/03294

And because it's my favorite druid miniature... Dwarf Druid: https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/m...down/03216

Two other suggestions I received I thought I would pass along.

Ebay - this guy seems to have a good selection, but I can't vouch for whether or not he's reputable: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/252052035278

If you're looking for cheap solutions to get you through until you can afford more legit minis, I've used small animal toys as monster stand-ins in the past. You can usually find them some place like wal-mart or in craft stores. Think "tube of dinosaurs" and such. They don't look as cool as real minis, but they work.

I enjoy painting, so I LOVE LOVE LOVE reaperminis, which was already mentioned. Great selection and quality.

The other option would be some of the Pathfinder stand-up figures: https://www.amazon.com/Pathfinder-Pawns-...nder+pawns
