If you have a variety of fantasy boardgames that could use miniatures, Reaper Miniatures has a Kickstart with some of the best unpainted mini's prices I've seen. International backers even have a low shipping price.
The $100 pledge level for 100+ miniatures is the best overall deal for mini's. If you're looking just for heroes for Prophecy base set, look at the Mummy level, at $60 for 30 miniatures. The mini's don't exactly match the Prophecy illustrations, but they're close. For the Dragon expansion, the $100 pledge has elves and dwarves. Other add-ons include $18 for 12 Reaper paints, and $25 for a 100+ six-tray figure case.
If you haven't painted miniatures before, the level of detail *is* pretty high. You can just take some black ink, add water, and "wash" the miniature to bring out the detail. (Then you can paint them later when you're ready!) For miniatures painters, the miniatures do not need priming.
