The following list of links are to sites suggested by one or more of the members of the society. We hope to expand upon this list as we find more places to explore on the web. We shall also endeavour to keep it up to date - there's nothing worse than a page of dead links !



Manufacturers

SF & Fantasy

Brigade Models - Purveyors of the finest SF miniatures (and we're not just saying that 'cos it's run by three club members. Oh alright, we are).
Ground Zero Games - SF models almost as good as Brigade's
Wessex Games - cottage industry producer of fine SF and Fantasy rulesets.
Games Workshop - No, they probably don't need any further advertising, but the LotR figures are very nice...

Historical (all periods)

Essex Miniatures - Excellent historical and fantasy 15 and 25mm figures.
Irregular Miniatures - inexpensive figures of all sizes in just about every period you can imagine.

20mm WW2

Milicast - More high quality resin.
Frontline - Loads of inexpensive resin models.
Gramodels - Excellent metal models (look under the 4mm heading).
Skytrex - Huge range of metal, variable but some very good stuff.
S&S - Small range of resin models.
MMS - Large range of very high-quality metal
FAA - Huge range of excellent figures and vehicles.
SHQ - Huge range of OK figures and excellent metal vehicles.
Red Star Models - a mention for our old pal Jeff Spain who makes superb resin vehicles, mostly of Soviet origin - no website unfortunately.

Scenery

PMC Games - Tony bought some very nice, reasonably priced painted buildings so thought they were worth a link. Unfortunately, PMC seem to be no more and their site has disappeared.

Accessories

Veni Vidi Vici - most famous for flags and shield decals
