So we know that there are a considerable number of companies that produce models, paints, tools and other things which are at times better than the product provided by the massive Games Workshop. And oftentimes cheaper to boot.

However many people, myself included, are only aware of a small handful of these. So the purpose of this thread is to construct a sort of mis-matched index of alternative miniatures, paints etc that fellow Heretics can investigate (could it possibly be stickied?) And rep will be give to those who contribute.

So I'll start.

Ultraforge Miniatures: A couple of excellent greater deamons, and a massive giant.

Quantum Gothic: High quality sci-fi terrain.
http://www.quantumgothic.co.uk/

Mantic Games: Fantasy elves, undead, and dwarfs.
http://www.manticgames.com/Home.html

Carry cases: KR Multicase and Battlefoam, both worth looking at for transporting your army.

Okay, hopefully I've got the ball rolling, remember this isn't about being critical about other companies products or anything like that, it's about becoming aware of them. Never assume that a something is widely known, if someone can read something new on this thread then that's our job done :eek:k:.

Honestly, I love some of those fantasy models, and the Avatars of War characters are just awesome. But in infuriates me that GW staff will sniff out models not from their catalogue and not allow you to use them let alone paint them in the store or any store events or tourneys, I am not exclusively buying from other companies, I have invested probably thousands of dollars into your product, its one character that is better than anything you make anyways, but you cant suck it up? argh.
