In the interests of providing the B&C Membership with the parts they need to make the model they envision in their head, we are collecting links in this thread to various sellers of bits and models for use with Warhammer 40k.

This is a work in progress. Expect new links to be added on a semi-regular basis, and possibly other moving to new categories as appropriate. If you have a site not listed in this thread, or discover a dead link, please contact myself or one of the PCA Mods and we'll see about getting it added.

 

Assume links without commentary have something for most armies.

Games Workshop/Forge World Bit Sellers

These folks sell bits produced by GW/FW

Spoiler

 

Non-GW Bits Producers

These folks make their own bits that are compatible with GW models

Spoiler

 

Third Party Full Models

Spoiler

 

Custom Decal Companies
Links and commentary in this section is taken unedited (except for the addition of spoiler tags) from Rob de Bie's tutorial on custom decals. Scroll through the link for a great tutorial on ALPS printed decals.

Terrain and Scenery

General Modeling

Oh, the list is far from finished. So far I've only gotten up to the 'g's in my list (with a few notable exceptions). But, just added Bits and Kits to my review list (about half the sites in that list are either dead or whose only use to 40K is that they are 28mm models - 'Okay, that rust monster over there? Yeah, he's a Bloodthirster. And that flumph?...')

Bulletbits55 from eBay, I use him as well as bits-world(who have their own website now btw)

http://www.ebay.com/...=p2047675.l2559

 

not advertising for him, but I use him almost as often as bits-world, good service, no issues.

bits-world has awesome customer service btw, I've had pieces missing(like the front of a DV terminator) and he immediately sent me a replacement after messaging him on eBay, another time my order didnt arrive in like two weeks...(lost in the mail, had it being tracked and it disappeared) he(she?) sent me replacements free

Excellent thread btw !

Google up "Thousand sons heads" and check images.  Off the top of that quick view I saw ideas from Kromlech, Maxmini, Spellcrow and PuppetsWar, really depends on how Egyptian you want to go.  Seriously, I didn't even realise there were this many options myself until I just looked.

 

As an additional question for this thread, does anyone have any good alternatives and easily purchasable answers to MkIII or MkIV Torsos?  I tried 'greenstuffing' armour plates on basic SM torsos to cover the midsection and groin the other day, but failed miserably with my lack-of-skills.  I saw the ones from Master Crafted Miniatures, but haven't seen them modelled up yet.

Kromlech have their Stygian bits (heads, pads, weapons); MaxMIni has their Mecha Egyptian heads; Puppets War has numerous heads based on Egyptian gods.

The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.

Thanks for the heads up, SoF. Somehow, a triple dub that the site doesn't have was at the beginning of the link. It's been fixed.

You haven't put bitzarium up with the rest of the 40k/fw bitz sellers, i'm waiting for my first order from them at the moment.

They're a french site, and have a lot of stuff. (At least when it's not sold out)

@lokkorex: Glad to help. I still have a huge text file full of old links to check and review. That's been on hold while I take care of other projects here and there, but what's posted so far covers the 'big names'.
