There are some sites with a good reputation such as thewarstore.com and others in the UK that offer discounts. While it is a good monetary decision to support sites that bring you the best deals, if you have a friendly local game store or even a crappy local game store that provides a place for you and your mates to play remember that they do let you use their roof and tables. Or, depending on who is selling what at the time, Heresy's trading section is a very good place to get models. I have traded with other Heretics and some, whom you can find in the good trader thread, will go out of their way to get you a good deal. Whichever outlet gets you the results you are looking for, go for it.

That which doesn't kill me has made a tactical mistake.

Support your local game store, if you have one. Otherwise, Wayland Games is the best deal online that I've found. They don't sell bitz, though-- but we have some great bitz vendors floating around on Heresy, so that shouldn't be too big an issue. And, for some reason, GW isn't too bad about their bitz these days. 10 Dark Angels without bases for 22 bucks is cheaper than an unrobed Tactical Squad...

wargamesempire.com is the cheapest I've seen so far, though the shipping was a bit slow. But it had to cross an ocean, so I cut them some slack. Plus they are a great supporter of Heresy Online, so I get the same warm fuzzies shopping with them that I do with the FLGS. Best of both worlds.

You're holding your plasmagun, staring down the barrel, it gets hot. "Phew! good thing I had stuck my gun outside this friggen window to shoot that heretic! Otherwise I might have melted my face off! - OH $%&^! What happened to my hands!?!"

ive found that if you play with currencys, and look at buying from other countrie you can get some good deals and save a bit of coin, shipping can be a few weeks but you cant have it both ways.
