Hello All

Just saw this advertised on the google ads on Astro.

Don\'t know if they are legit but looks quite cool if they are, they are based in the US.

I\'ve seen their site and ebay auctions. Seem to be legit. I think I\'ll be ordering some power fists from them in the near future. My Nid playing buddy will probably end up buying some rending claws too.

Looks like this guy buys a bunch of boxed sets, cuts them apart and sells the specific bits in small lots. He charges enough to easily cover the cost of the boxes with just selling the more popular bits. Wish I had come up with the idea myself.

It certainly saves buying a whole boxed set yourself if you just want a few bits.

I used them just the other week to ship to sunny England. Highly recommended!

I bought 3 pairs of lightning claws, 2 landspeeder assault cannons and 10 BFM Space Marines for less than the cost of tactical squad and that included my shipping costs!!!

Yeah... but when i totaled up the cost of all the parts i would need to make my new killteam up it came to 10 quid more that if i bought a load of box sets from GW online store!

Still great for occstional parts though!

Sounds like you\'ve got a spendy kill team. :)

When I first came across them they only had Space Marine and Tyranid parts... In the last year they\'ve expanded quite a bit. My assumption is that as the business grows so will the selection of bits.

I\'m currently bidding on three of his auctions. Sometimes you can get better prices per part as you can buying straight from his site but as always there\'s a gamble involved with bidding.

I ordered from these guys and i got the 10 BFM marines, 2 land speeder assault cannons and 3 pairs of termy lightning claws AND postage to UK for less than ?18!

So the postage cost isnt much really!

If you consider that\'s ?4 worth of assault cannons, then probably a couple of quids worth of lightning claws, and 10 marines as well as the postage actually ?18 isn\'t much for all that. They seem pretty reasonably priced!
