Default Where do you go to get a good deal on models?

As above, thus below...

I'm looking for sites and locations where I might be able to get a few kits for cheap. In other words, I'm looking for something along the lines of what BWbits was before it tanked.

BWBits had a 20% discount on all kits, plus combined shipping.

I'm looking around Ebay, though it's mostly buy three hundred dollars worth of horribly painted 1990 era models. I'm hoping to get the actual kits, not the something that someone else has already worked on. :\

Any ideas, guys?

Arena Games on E-bay offers up 20% off and often free P&P. He also says he can get any figure you wish if he doesn't have it in stock.

The War Store took over BWBits and they sell all the same bits BW did plus they have 20% off all GW products. ChaosOrc Superstore has 25% off including Apoc bundle deals but their selection is a bit more limited. They do have a good selection of GD limited edition models as well as classic range stuff. I order from both War Store and ChaosOrc and can vouch that both are very reliable.

Well I get all my stuff from an E-bay shop, The Red Barons Supply Store. It's the cheapest on there I think, but most of the models come without boxes, still on sprues, just no box. You can ask for any GW product not in stock too.

Noble Knights.com and eBay. I can usually get the stuff at the US or UK price...often at 10 or 20% cheaper the the price on GW website. Even with the shipping cost (especially if I buy more then one) I usually end up paying less then I would at the store or on GW Canada.

Oh, I've been getting all my boxed sets from Maelstrom Games. They have a good Ebay store too. They sell at 10% off the GW retail price, and have free shipping on their buy-it-now items on Ebay. Which is just king for people like me who live on the other side of the world where the Australian Prices are anywhere from 120-160% of the equivalent UK price.

So far I've bought from them:
Daemonhunters Codex, Tau Battleforce, Tau Devilfish, Tau Piranha, Land Raider Terminus Ultra. I might get a few other Battleforces from there, and I'll be looking at getting most of the boxed sets for my Daemonhunter army from them. It's pretty great.

Well, besides Ebay, I have always bought from a place called http://www.scifigenre.com/browse.asp...xpandToID=1051. Sci-fi Genre has always been reliable and I have bought over $500 worth of merchandise from them. They sell paint, bases, glue, modles, putty, plasticard, and everything GW imaginable all at 10%-25% off. I love that place...

They have good, reasonably priced, new sets. I bought lots of stuff there, and I'm happy with them.

Warstore sells Tau stuff. It's a bit higher than FW prices but your aren't paying 15% shipping or paying for exchange rate fees through your bank. They don't sell all FW stuff and as I only really want renegade militia, which they currently don't sell, I haven't bothered to order any FW from them. They are reliable though so ordering from them is a good option if you plan to buy GW stuff along with a FW order.
