This is a brilliant resource. Need to get planning some more characters.

Does anyone remember which site was selling the stalker model?

Has some 54mm stuff, mostly in the form of lizardmen or birdmen.

also has some nice 50mm stuff, and other things that may prove useful for aliens, bitz, etc. etc.

I've just added a new link to the bottom of the list that might be of interest to people - it's a Yahoo group that has card templates for all sorts of 40k vehicles, as well as some for buildings and vehicles from other universes.  They all seem to be sized for 28mm, but it should be easy enough to double all measurements to make Inquisitor scale versions.  I haven't looked at the Valkyrie templates, but they could have made my life a lot easier if I'd found them a while ago.

There are templates for titans too - I'll buy a pint for anyone who brings an Inquisitor scale Warlord or Reaver* to WHW!

I've just been informed (by Kierkegaard) that this is the site you're looking for (I've also added it to the list above);
http://www.skminiatures.co.uk/

EDIT: I've just had a quick look through and there's some good stuff there - when I've finished a few of the models I'm on with at the minute I might get the Stalker myself, it is a nice model...

One supplier I'd recommend is Antics Online. Whilst they generally provide vehicles of all kinds (I bought The Beast from them ;D), they also have many ranges of 54mm (1/32) figures. Antics also offer a massive range of hobby equipment, from paint brushes to brass rod etc. I've used them several times and have had no complaints . And I'm a grumpy sod.

Okay, I'll add that one to the list.

On an unrelated note, I see Reaper have added couple more models to their Master Series Miniatures range - the Shipwreck Angel is very nice, but the Female Crusader is probably of more use to Inquisitor players.

Has it occurred to anyone else that Werner Klocke has a very funny name?  I didn't notice until SWMBO pointed it out.

Draconia's website appears to have shut down.

EDIT - which is a shame, because they've just released a new 54mm paladin:

That's not particularly new I don't think - my friend has had that model as a basis for his Inquisitor for over a year now, he got it from El Greco miniatures, it's under the Draconia section. They've got some nice bits and pieces there.
An Inquisitor walks into a bar - he rolls D100 to see if he hits it.

Hi everyone,

Can anyone tell me wether Colorado Miniatures still operates? (http://www.coloradominiatures.com)
I've been after some specific models they stock, but can't get a reply from them and won't risk buying from them until I do.

Alternatively, does anyone know of a good supplier of Seil Models that ships to Australia?

Apologies if this is the wrong place to post this- I couldn't tell where it would fit best.

Thanks, Geep

If you can't get a reply from Colorado, I suggest contacting the manufacturers of the miniatures you want, direct - Colorado is a retailer, not a manufacturer.

Alternatively, try the - excellent - Historex Agents, who stock the majority of the miniatures shown at Colorado.

They are still alive. On CMON they announced that they are now part of Ares Mythologic and have new models coming

I've updated the list to include a link to Ares Mythologic / Draconia.
