I prefer plastics, hard plastic. So I wouldn't buy the soft plastics but if I did I would probably repaint them anyway.

I think the Mousketeer and I have very different problems. What stands between me and more games is not time needed to paint figures but lack of opponents--and I enjoy painting.
I'm not opposed to soft plastics, and if buying pre-painted figures would get me more games, I'd do it. But the proposal assumes a trade-off which doesn't exist for me or any wargamer I'm in regular contact with.

I might add them but not replace the metals.

I'd consider buying new forces this way – why not?

I would perhaps give a try to pre-painted figures, but little else.
Painting is a significant, gratifying part of my hobby.

Like Lluis I enjoy the painting as well but I would consider them. I just can't imagen that I wouldn't repaint or a least do some kind of wash and highlight.

I have done this already – bought some pre-painted soft plastic and then gave them a wash and highlights
Its okay but I prefer hard plastic

"Switch?" No. But I'd add to what I had, or, if the game was good, buy them as a new area of interest.
Right now I don't game with metal 25-28mm, though I actually do have a bunch of not-yet painted SP figs for Dungeon Saga, which I'd consider boosting.

Depends on how detailed and good the paint jobs are.

You mean like HeroClix figures which I have bought scores of? Why, yes.
|The Beast Rampant||06 Oct 2017 9:53 a.m. PST|
As cheap & dirty supplemental minis, yes. I loved Rackham's pre-paints, which got dirt cheap after the company folded.
But PPP would actually REPLACE nothing.
|kodiakblair||06 Oct 2017 11:54 a.m. PST|
Not really an option for me,no interest in either 15 or 28mm.

If I was adding forces I would consider it to get units on the table faster. Especially for large units where you could paint the front ranks and bulk up with prepaints behind them.
| COL Scott ret ||09 Oct 2017 8:54 a.m. PST|
If they were inexpensive enough I would use it to start a whole new area

With soft plastics there is too much chance of the paint flaking off if the figure gets a bit of over exuberant handling which would require constant re-painting/re-touching. Pre-painted soft plastics NO, but hard plastics may be worth looking into.
