Default Where do you all get your Minis?

Now that I have time to get back into the hobby, I'm looking on expanding my 2 armies in 40K (Crimson Fists and Tau) and starting a Fantasy Army. Obviously this will be expensive and I was wondering where you all get your Minis?

Do you buy from GW or an Independant?
Do you buy online from GW or from another site?

If anyone uses a Website that isn't GW plese could you specify if it's from the US or UK. As I live in the UK and I wouldnt like to buy from overseas if I could help it.

I hope to see you all the great gaming table in our imaginations very soon (Playing 1000000 point battles. I'm getting bored of small ones lol)

I get next to everything from eBay

You can get stuff new and boxed, for less than the retail price, or second-hand, for much, much less than the retail price.

You save money, either way

I try to support my local store, even though it is about 40 minutes away. Why? Well, for one, I like the owner, and if I can help keep his business around, so be it. Second, I like the crowd and everytime I go, even if I don't play anything, I always end up shooting the breeze for awhile. Lastly, the more money I put into the store, the more money can be used to do things like tournaments and other cool community stuff.

Support your local dealer!

I buy from a small local comic store that gives 20% of WH ;D . of course being in NM we have no GW store around but I would not go there any way if we had one, seeing as 20% of can make a big difrence on some of the bigger boxes. any way I would recomend trieing to find a local place like that, there cool.

I like supporting the local stores. They really struggle in the face of online sales, and it nice to have someplace close if I need paint.

I got them at GW but now there's a store that doesn't take forever to get to.
It's local.

eBay man, scoring unpoened boxes for 30-40% off makes the searching and waiting all worth it.
