Default Need Supplies

Plasticard, Plastruct, magnets, and large sheets of mailorder wood for boards. Not to mention decent outlets for some raw materials.


Unfortunately as a disadvantage of living in the middle of the Atlantic there's no game shops or hobby stores. I DID find a 4x8 sheet of 1/2" plywood but they want $36 USD for it which is downright exhorbitant.

Anyway, what are some decent online outlets I can purchase these things from? I've tried google but Plasticard and Plastruct almost never come up with a place to actually buy and I'd rather not try to dig through reams of eBay-age if I don't have to. Just seems like everyone but me has no problem procuring this stuff, just curious where everyone gets it from.

Twelve people viewed this but not one suggestion? Didn't think it'd be THAT hard to come by. Thanks to poking around I think I might've found a place for magnets but I'll still gladly take suggestions.

I'd really appreciate something on the plasticard and plastruct, I haven't been able to find out anywhere that sells it. The wood I suppose I can live with but I still think that nearly $40 is way too much for some freakin' plywood.

Terceira, Azores. The English-speakers on base have a very, VERY small and limited hobby shop that does not carry anything even halfway related to miniatures (I've exhaustively searched for raw materials, everything is way too large or nonexistant). Off-base there's two cities and zero hobby shops. None. Zip. Nada.


Apparently Portugal doesn't like miniatures. Hence the question.

THANK YOU. I can only purchase things online here so no, it's not an issue. These will greatly help out.

I'm glad that i could help. I wasn't too sure on what kind of situation you'd have with ordering stuff from on-line, so I went with the mind set that it couldn't hurt.

As for the other materials you're after, like styrofoam pink/blue and plywood... sorry that I can't help you there. If some one else dosen't have any suggestions, I guess you'll just have to scrounge and take your chances locally.

For the plywood I'm thinking of checking anyone back in the states I know can send some to me. If not I'll just have to cough up the cash for their prices here but I swear that plywood board is the ONLY wood product I'm buying from them.

I'm already starting on making what terrain I can and this will help out immensely. The magnets I also wanted to get BEFORE my battleforce arrives so I'll be ready. Nothing worse than having the minis and not having everything to assemble/paint them.

If you live near a city area, why not trying to just look around for thrown out tables and wooden furniture? They might be good for said plywood depending on the size.
