Well, my local store has kind of copped out on me when it comes to the specialist games lines, so I was wondering where everyone else here in the US gets their mini's other than GW. I myself play Inquisitor Bloodbowl and a little bit of BFG so any assistance would be appreciated.
**Sorry if this is a duplicate i couldn't find anything in the first 4 pages of threads i searched for so i figured I was good**
If you have a favorite for mail order that gives decent rates feel free to refer me in a PM

Games Workshop mail order is always going to be your best bet.
Or try eBay, you can often find great deals and bargins,
it takes time and energy to find stuff others have missed and always look at how much p&p the seller wants, a rough guess it £2 for a model, £3-4 for a boxed sqaud or tank. If you can get it cheaper than that then your dealing with a honest bloke anymore and your getting ripped off.
There are other online 40k mail order providers outhere, but if your looking for BFG and such then i would be suprised if they stock that, like i said G.W mail order will have everthing you need.
I AM BOOMER!
I'm fortunate, in some ways, that I have lots of options. My "location" on the left there is not just me being clever. I work in one state, live in another during the week, and stay with my girlfriend in a third on the weekends. Yeah, it's nuts. I gotta buy me a hybrid.
Anyway, that gives me access to no less than six different stores, one of which being an "official" Games Workshop store (Danvers, Mass., for those who care). One of the stores offers a 20 percent discount on GW stuff, but has a hit-or-miss selection. Three of them are stores I could game at, which forces me to consider buying SOMETHING at each, even if it's just paints, so I don't feel like a freeloader.
Then, of course, there are online retailers, LO's trader zone and EBay. To date, I've bought/gotten something from all of these sources. As for advice to you, I'd suggest checking out the online retailers. If you don't like GW's prices, there are a ton that offer cheaper rates. I don't know if it's kosher to name any here, so I won't, but do a Google. It's not hard to find them.
If you're not afraid to get "used" stuff, try EBay, or LO's trader zone. You'll also find other 40k-related forums have their own version of a trade channel. Find someone you trust, and you might get good stuff while getting rid of old stuff you don't need anymore.
Local partnership store down here, they tend to be very aware of how the winds are blowing.
Battlefleet Gothic is starting to pick up with some of the older players, and voila...battlefleet gothic books all over.
For regular minis I use thewarstore.net Specialist games stuff I am lucky enough to have a FLGS that stocks the entire line and really promotes the Specialist product (Huge Mordheim League there!.) GW Direct Services is really your best bet though if you aren't so-blessed. You can also set up some saved searches on eBay and have it send you an e-mail every day with new results.
