@ RobSkib- the Falkar conversion was mine I think.

I tend to use Historex agents over other UK suppliers. Not a single problem with them in 5 years.

Maplin have a half price offer on one of their aluminium cases until 23rd Feb, making it a pretty reasonable £15 (before postage)
As a further bonus to this, an e-mail has just arrived telling me that Maplin are also offering free postage from their online store until 5pm Monday.

If you want such a case, now seems to be a very good time for it.

I've updated the list with the new address for Bits & Kits - if anyone spots any more broken links then let me know and I'll fix them.

Also, if anyone knows of any manufacturers/suppliers worthy of being included, post them here and I'll add them to the front page.

Just citing Artemis Black's as an interesting source of models, mainly 28's but the odd larger scale model that is really different, worth a browse I think anyway, particularly the Dark Age stuff.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Apologies for the double post, but I was just bumbling around ebay and found this seller:

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Fenris-Games_SciFi-scenery_W0QQ_fsubZ1041049013QQ_sidZ55776203QQ_trksidZp4634Q2ec0Q2em322

Who has a nice range of 40mm bases as well as some nice looking sci-fi scenery that I think would fit in inquisitor well. Particularly like the bulk head doors, though perhaps a wee bit small.

Anyway just thought for the scenery making inclined it might be a useful(ish) resource

Hey, new to posting (although I've been lurking for a couple of weeks). Since I didn't see it on the list, I ust thought I would recommend Victrix 54mm British Napoleonic Peninsular Infantry Flank Companies - they are multi-pose hard plastic, and actually a tad larger than the GW inquisitor figures. Make really good cannon fodder with good plastic conversion opportunities.

Jump packs

You may want to pull apart artemis' backpack and add the turbines.  But it is a resin so easy enough!

Are they not a bit small to turn Artemis's backpack into a jump pack?  They might work as alternate nozzles though...

I've added a list of retrospectives to the list - if I've missed any, drop me a PM and I'll update the list.
