Post by: Jubal on December 13, 2008, 09:59:41 PM
A list of good links and companies.

Games Workshop; Warhammer Section (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/landing.jsp?catId=cat1290033&rootCatGameStyle=wh)
Obvious one, this is the online store and article repository for Warhammer.

GAMING
The Hammer and Anvil (http://talismancy.com/hammer/portal.php)
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 (http://forum-of-doom.com/index.php)
One of the best places on the 'net for minatures and converting

Things to Make and Do; Sculpting/Modelling (http://www.things-to-make-and-do.co.uk/sculpting-and-modelling/sculpting-and-modelling.html)
This site doesn't have much on it, but the face sculpting tut is one of the best anywhere...

Heresy Minatures (http://www.heresyminiatures.com/)
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 (http://www.hasslefreeminiatures.co.uk/)
Another good minis site if you want some variation form the GW regular stuff.

OTHER
Warhmmer Online; Age of Reckoning (http://www.warhammeronline.com/)
The huge new Warhammer MMORPG.

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...
Title: Links - Modelling, Painting and Gaming
Post by: Pentagathus on March 07, 2009, 10:24:46 PM
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.

Post by: Jubal on March 07, 2009, 10:42:23 PM
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.

Post by: Jubal on March 08, 2009, 11:36:52 AM
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.

Yeah but they don't have 28mm.

Yea, he's a damn good sculptor though.

Hmmm well the Warstore and um Wayland Games are both good ways to get GW stuff cheaper than in store. Unless of course you meant non-Citadel models in which case I'm sorry but I'm blank.

I suppose you could browse Ebay. There's always stuff on Ebay. :D
Title: Re: Links - Modelling, Painting and Gaming
Post by: Death Nade on December 18, 2011, 01:45:07 AM
Yeah, Ebay can be dodgy though :P. ill try the sites you mentioned. hopefully they have Skaven as well (hybrid bulls rats would be cool :D)
Title: Re: Links - Modelling, Painting and Gaming
Post by: Death Nade on December 18, 2011, 02:03:17 AM
Wayland games is far better than the warstore. lots more things, its all in pounds though :P. The main problem is that apparently you cant get the sets shipped to Australia :/ and when i checked the prices they actually aren't that different :P

Mantic's Chaos dwarves look great.

And they're also a bit cheaper than GW.
