I know it, mate
Your business Facebook page is one I follow as I used to paint a lot when I was younger.
It started with the usual military aircraft and Subbuteo teams, but when I got into RPGs, I used to visit Citadel Miniatures here in Southampton.
They were one of the best in their field and I think GW bought them out in the end - another great example of their "vertical diversification" business model.
They had some cracking - and bonkers - models for all sorts of gaming and table-top war nuts.
I may have mentioned this before, but I worked for six months in THE Virgin Games store at 100 Oxford St (right about the world famous "Hundred Club") and was usually based in the RPG section at the back of the store. Up front were traditional board games, jigsaws and chess machines, while there was also a small mezzanine level selling a new range of "computer games", whatever they were
This was about 1988 so it was all Speccy and C64 tapes back then.
We sold a good range of figures and I was really into comics back then, getting staff discount (30%) at the Megastore up the road.
I painted a cool Judge Dredd on his bike and a few other big lead models that the store gave to me to help fill the display cabinet. I actually got paid to sit there doing this
The Dredd was still in there last time I went but that was about ten years ago and I don't even know if the store exists anymore, it's so long since I was in the area.
I spent twenty minutes with Susannah York once, as she was looking to buy some paints, brushes and figures for her son who was just getting into it all.
I never really used them in gaming - you could get those hexagonal map-making card pieces but that seemed like a lot of hassle for a game you play in your head so I'd just paint them to represent my character - typically a half-elf chaotic good ranger, if I recall correctly
