A list of good links and companies.

Games Workshop; Warhammer Section
Obvious one, this is the online store and article repository for Warhammer.

GAMING
The Hammer and Anvil
The Hammer and Anvil is an awesome site for fan-made rules and units, their 'sealed works' are easily the most compehensive and well-tested fan rules on the 'net, andhe gus on the fourm have masses of experence. Definiely worth a visit.

MODELLING, CONVERTING AND PAINTING
The Forum of Doom
One of the best places on the 'net for minatures and converting

Things to Make and Do; Sculpting/Modelling
This site doesn't have much on it, but the face sculpting tut is one of the best anywhere...

Heresy Minatures
An excellent UK-based minatures store, some good figs (Van Halfling is a classic) and insanely cheap greenstuff, looking at their prices you will NEVER buy it from GW again.

Hassle Free Minatures
Another good minis site if you want some variation form the GW regular stuff.

OTHER
Warhmmer Online; Age of Reckoning
The huge new Warhammer MMORPG.
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

25mm is what we use in warhammer. These models are cheap and I prefer the look of them to most of GW's stuff these days. Some of them look a bit dodgy but their painting team isn't exactly on the same level as the 'eavy metal team.

Good find - and the prices are quite nice too. Not sure about the lack of pictures of most models there though...

Yeah, I'm not sure if that's becuase they don't want to clutter the site with pics or becuase they don't have pictures. Or becuse the models are armadillo.

I might order a load of Dwarfs to convert, since they're pretty cheap. Even if the models are crap they'll be fine as back rank filler.

I wasn't too keen on the crossbows but the other dwarfs looked pretty decent. I'm going to use their historical models for my Norse warband, the early german archers look pretty decent.

Yea... their sculpting doesn't look to be up to Heresy or Hasslefree standard, but the models are cheap and non-GW. I'll probably place an order as soon as I remember to get some moeny out the bank.

Not much point having a whole army a head shorter than everyone elses on the other hand...
