I'm the primary GM for my group. I'm starting RotRL AP in the next month or so. I don't always run all the chapters. We pass the GM duties around usually for any AP there are 2-3 GMs. But as the "head" GM I usually purchase the minis and stuff like that.
I'm looking through the AP and comparing it to the list of Pathfinder Battles minis. Is there a list of NPC/Monster minis by chapter? That way I can buy the minis I need as I need them. I usually just by the singles.
With a case(s) there are too many left over at the end. In some cases even if there are five bugbear-ooze-slimes in chapter 1 (a made up example) I still only buy one to show the players what they look like. Then I can use something else for the rest. How many bugbear-ooze-slimes does one really use anyway other than that one encounter?
