I was looking through Northstar's webstore earlier and noticed that they're currently selling off some Victrix Napoleonics and Warlord Celts and Romans at half price due to damaged boxes.

Oh I forgot to mention that.   :icon_rolleyes:

Surprising really as I bought two boxes of the Legionnaires ...........  :engel:

Anyone dealt with these people?

http://www.modelsforsale.com/

They seem to have reasonable pricing on the Wargames Factory stuff I was looking at in particular.

Warlord games have equivalent of 25% off on their plastics - buy 3 get 4th free.

http://shop.warlordgames.co.uk/plastic-fantastic-4227-p.asp

and there are two £100 deals Romans or Celts also here:

Careful with the wargamesfactory stuff, they're about the lowest quality of the current 28mm plastics (except maybe the hät ranges). I got the zombies and only use them as conversion fodder with lots of greenstuff as they are really that bad.

Perry, Gripping Beast, Warlord Games, Victrix, Immortal Miniatures and even Mantic (the ghouls are a very nice kit) do better plastics.

Thanks.
I am sampling at the moment - I have lots of Warlord Games Celts and Romans, and am looking at a bit of mix-and-matching / converting.
I got a box of their Vikings, and I have a box of the Gripping Beast ones - I will go and have a closer look.

Edit:

Well it may be because they are a later set, but I am quite impressed with the WH Huskarls - comparing them to the Gripping Beast set, the details look on a par.
I have had a historical contact suggest that there is something wrong with the Huskarls clothing whic I didn't understand, but not something I will worry about.

I guess that maybe the WF early stuff which I believe was their Romans and Celts may be plainer - however that may be ok for my needs.
If you want archers or slingers from Warlord Games I am pretty certain you have to buy metal models - now they are not particularly expensive and look nice, but there seem to be several slinger and bow arms on the WF plastic sets, which will give me a much cheaper option for missile fire.

We'll see - I am trying to take photos as I go.

GamesPoet inferred in another post that WF plan to redo their Romans - I guess because it was one of their first kits and unadventurous.

On a sort of brighter note - my Black Tree stuff appeared today - so June 3rd ordered - delivered July 24th.
Money taken June 3rd.
Money taken in US Dollars, though my order was processed apparently to a UK address in GB pounds, costing me just under £2.00 on the exchange.

The models are good value at the sale price I got - the service and communication is shit.


Edit:
I have now double-checked the order; I have a little note in the box acknowledging that one set is missing and it is 'to follow'.

AND on further examination I seem to have some 7 extra spearmen - no note about that, so I am not sure if it was a gesture due to the delay or an error in packing.

I've bought some of the Wargames Factory Saxons.
Having hunted around best UK deal by far is here:-

http://www.wargamesandminiatures.co.uk/Hammer_of_the_Gods/cat268515_282664.aspx

So far everyone else has them at £14.50 a box, but they are only £12.50 here.

Free postage at £30.01    so just 3 boxes for free post and save £6.00 as well

Be aware though that the armoured bodies for both the Huscarls and the Thegns are the same - You get 4 bodies per sprue with 24 separate arms, then there is a separate heads and weapons sprue for Vikings and Saxons.
It therefore follows that the Saxons Fyrd box, has the Saxons weapons sprue so the heads (12 choices) are the same as the Thegns

You can go to the WF mainsite to see more details on the sprues.

I just discovered that Northstar (UK) currently have special offers on their Artizan Moors range. The whole range are going at half price.

That's £2.50 for 4 infantry and £4.50 for 3 cavalry. Moors only I'm affraid, not Landsknechts.

Northstar have further deals going on for a few days.

Some Warlord Games metal at varying discounts:
http://www.northstarfigures.com/list.php?man=23&cat=137&sub=179&page=1

5 of the 9 are half price

A bit of Artizan that might interest some
http://www.artizandesigns.com/list.php?spo=1&page=3

vikings - last item on that page (3) and it might be worth a browse at pages 1 & 2

and finally:

http://www.northstarfigures.com/list.php?man=36&page=1

Generally I am not a great lover of Renegade, as I feel their body proportions are a bit out - particularly some of their heads seem too big, the Libyan Cavalry for example, but I have been tempted by their Saxons - it works out £0.50 per metal mini.

Foundry have a 20% on everything Christmas offer.
In fact their offers seem to be running constantly these days.
Maybe they are just over-priced generally ...............

[The secret with them is to buy a book in you rorder and get the free postage.]

Has anyone got their compendium book - I have been tempted, but wonder if it is of use?

Oh and ARTIZAN prices apparently are going up December 1st, along with CRUSADER

Im not sure if anyone watches the FRP specials section, but I just ordered a few things, including a gamezone pegasus of light for 6.81US (retail ~$25):

http://www.frpgames.com/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=38721

Looks like it would work well for a captain on pegasus.  They only have 3 left.

These guys have interesting prices and good offers.

Has anyone bought anything from them? I might try them, but I'm curious about some experience of others.

I have ordered from them, Wayland Games and [urlhttp://www.maelstromgames.co.uk/]Maelstrom Games[/url]. The others are cheeper than Maelstrom on the whole, but Maelstrom offer 10% off as base and free P&P and also offer extra discounts from time to time to newsletter recipients (I bet the next one will be a VAT going up saver offer) of up to 17.5% with free P&P.
Without so much as a damn your eyes for the inconvenience

If you like what Paolo has done with the Warlord Romans it might be worht a look at Northstar's Bargains pages at the moment:

http://www.northstarfigures.com/list.php?spo=1&page=2

Legionnaires at £9.00 and Vetrans at £8.00

The Curteys Chinese are still at a ridiculous half price - around £10 for 24 metal models - not a fan myself, but you might like them

Not sure how good a deal this is - Foundry are bloody expensive even with 30% off.

http://wargamesfoundry.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=c387bacdcec2214a5ed65e7d9&id=25a8a023dd&e=4cba131a5c

Lots of stuff being discontinued - some ancients and ECW and a couple of Medieval packs amongst other stuff.
Who knows who it might appeal to?

Wargames Factory have their Saxons and Vikings at 35% off until August 31st.

Probably better if you are in the good old USA ................

http://www.wargamesfactory.com/webstore/hammer-of-the-gods

Ignore the 3 x and 7 x as they don't apply to the reduced price according to the home page.

http://www.wargamesfactory.com/announcements/end-of-summer-sale

They also have some small Persian sprues at 70% - probably sprues left over from the muli-sprue idea, which they have dumped I believe and they are now putting the Persian infantry on a new bigger sprue.

Edit:
Not for the UK - I tried 2 boxes of Bondi at $13.97 each and 20 sprues at 70c and it wanted $41+ shipping ..........
