yeah I bought like:

30 Ork Boyz

20 Gretchin

5 Nobz

20 Guardsmen

11 Paints

4 Things of Static Grass

The Fortified Manorhouse

Dice



For about $218, including shipping charges that would have been about $302 GW, savings of 38%

What kind of shipping costs do these UK sites have for shipping to the US? Also, is there a way to pay in US Dollars, or an online service that converts to Pounds or something like that?

2) google used to convert gbp to $

Well, I guess I wasn't clear. When I PM'ed Discount Wargames awhile ago, we came to the conclusion that international shipping would kind of crap on any deal they could get me, so I was wondering if maybe rates were more reasonable on that now or something.

Also, I wasn't looking to find the exchange rate, I was wondering if these websites ACCEPT US Dollars, or if I would need to actually possess UK Pounds in order to purchase from them.

Credit cards and Paypal will convert it for you when you send money.

Eyes with out life.
Maggot ridden corpses.
Mountains of skulls.
These are some of my favorite things.

I usually get my modles from a site called Wayland Games but wargame empire is cheaper still. As long as the shipping time and cost is reasonable ill be a regular customer. I love the hobby but dont know how GW can compete with their prices sometimes.
