Over the years I've moved away from enjoying miniatures painting as much as I used to. These days I prefer to spend my time playing. Hooray!

What this means, though, is that I've been increasingly drawn to games with pre-painted miniatures. I'm sure there are others like me so I've started this list of the games I've played for which pre-paints are available.

Please feel free to add to it, I'd like to find out about other similar games. If you can, please add a comment on the quality of game play and the quality of the pre-paints. If you know of any pre-painted metal minis, please add those games too.

The entry for Electric Football reminded me about this childhood favourite. Many pre-painted teams were available. The weren't well painted but you could recognise your team. I was lucky enough that the blue team in the main game approximated my own club Peterborough United.

I think that the game has just been relaunched and the painting is quite good now.

Pre-painted knights for Shadows over Camelot. I've not seen them in the flesh/plastic. Any good?

Fantasy combat game by the same people who published AT-43. Alas, it's gone the way of AT-43. I think the quality of the painting and the sculpts is pretty damn good, and there was a wide range of figures: an undead army, a werewolf army, an army of biologically-engineered monsters, and a couple of human armies with the usual figures -- mounted knights, swordsman, archers, etc.

The Dirz (Scorpion) army, with the bio-engineered monsters, is particularly impressive.
