Guys, I'm setting this up as a sticky- but figured it'd be a good place to add some links. I only have a handful to get going!

This is, of course, separate from http://www.warlordgames.com/ who we know have a very comprehensive range!

FIGURES
Black Tree Designs tons of metal figures available including 8th army and Afrika Korps.

VEHICLES
Company B Lots of great vehicles available. Great decals as well.

TERRAIN
Legends in Time Prepainted 1/72 terrain by IMEX as seen in Judson and Dano's reports. I might have to grab some of this!

No problem, its was quite easy actually. All I had to do was think about the range of minis upstairs, and it all comes flooding back.

I only have 28mm (ish) scale (some FoW but that's going on eBay very soon...) so maybe some others on here will give up what they know...

Cheers,

Ark3n

For buildings 4ground.co.uk

Mdf flat pack buildings that look superb and build quite easily, although they are a bit expensive (or is that the tight jock coming out)

Thanks for the links. Once I've got my armies all squared away I need to look into getting some of this quality terrain. After all, nothing looks better than a fully painted army on a fully painted table.

Tamiya has a great range of WWII 1/48 scale tanks, 1/48 scale tanks are slightly too big, but unless you have a bolt action and a tamiya side by side of the same tank you are unlikely to notice. I play soviets and plan on getting a KV-1 and a JS From them. So my soviet heavy tanks are slightly too big not so much to be game breaking but enough to make them even more intimidating.

Blank recessed / indented dice; 19mm in size taking a 14mm square label. Very cheap for larger games. I bought 36 grey and 36 green for less than the price of one official pack.

Blank dice.

The photo doesn't show the colours well, the labels are grey not white.

Fantascape: They produce a line of "Historical" Flat Bases. Appears to be resin. I ordered 2 sets of the Artillery 90mm bases. I plan to do a review on my blog Dice of Legends.

http://www.fantascape.com/epages/es1375 ... Categories

They have a unique base with an indent for models with a base on it to blend in easier.

Artillery Base

They also make "prone" bases for kneeling, sitting, and laying down.

Gothic Line: Not a huge selection (appears they just started with lots of "NEW") as of yet but their stuff seems nice and includes: Japanese, Americans and Germans. There is also some scenery (sandbag emplacements and wells) as well as 3 blisters of historical figures (2 famous German Generals with Hitler in each and various big name generals, there is an Allied one also).

Track48: They have a variety of 1/48 vehicles and some great accessories/conversion items. They also have a nice gallery of well painted tanks!

http://www.track48.com/shop/home.php

Here are some of my favorites!

Image
May have to get this to make objective markers! They have tons like medical supplies, more food, ammo crates, barrels, weapon cares and more...

Image
Panzerwerfer 42! Only company to make it and looks sweet! Expensive compared to the Hanomag rocket one sadly. Oddly it looks like it should not be open topped. May have to get this, just looks great!
