Good deals on models?

Does anyone know of anywhere (in the UK/website) that does good deals on models?

I know that some websites can sell them for a bit less than the actual GW..
Does anybody know any?


Bada boom!

Sorry Im not from the isle, so dont know any uk places but with the net I would look at other countries. With the pound being so high against the aussie dollar atm u will get more bang for ur buck.

a site i like to use is, sorry not linked to lazy and i dont know if they do international postage but they r cheaper than GW and ur pound will make it even cheaper.
use for an easy quick currency converter.

It may sound silly but I quite often buy from UK or US depending on which currency the aussie dollar is stronger against, just remember to take into account postage when making ur final decision

If I agreed with u we would both be wrong !!!

Deliveries can take their time if you are ordering stuff that they dont hold in stock, they are however increasing their stock levels etc. They are reliable and the price is good.

Its well worth checking out their different postage options as well, depends on the order size but sometimes it doesnt cost a lot to upgrade to a faster service. Ive known as little as 10p difference between standard parcel - (can take 4 days and did the one time I used it) and courier next day service.

I tend to buy off Ebay! Theres plenty of ebay shops who sell around 15% off GW prices, some loads more. And occasionally you'll get a bargain off normal sellers, i bought a box of Thousand Sons for £5.50 the other week! bargain!

Yep these guys have outlined a few of the good big ones. It might also be worth watching the advertisement Banners at the top of the Heresy Online website as they're all independant retailers like these.

Also worth taking a look at the stickied threads in the Trading forum -

I'd Recommend

They're Damn cheap (Some of their stuff is the cheapest on the net that I've seen)

Customer service is good and postage is nice and cheap for UK based orders.

May take a little while to get there but it's well worth it:D

Not trying to be a jerk or to lay on a guilt trip or anything, but my personal opinion is that you should try to support your local game store. Now maybe your store doesn't provide a good atmosphere to play games or you just can't afford GW's prices (man i can understand that). There are a lot of good reason to buy online too.

It's just that around me there are a lot of people who complain about not having a good place to play. Yet these were the same people who were buying online while the game store went out of business.
