    Gale Force 9 Hobby Supplies, any good?

    As the title says, I would like to know your oppinions on the Gale force 9 range of hobby supplies, like their file kit, clippers, sculpting tools and cutting mat.

    Is it of a good quality, or kind of cheap?

    Any help would be great, as I would like to get this stuff before christmas when I'll have lots of models to try the new stuff out on.

    Thanks

    The only supplies of theirs that I've bought is the pinning set, but I've been very pleased with it. Having bit and pin sizes that actually match is a very good thing ;Y

    I've purchased some of their scenics and bases, and been pleased with the quality.

    I have GF9 branded clippers, sculpting tools, pinning set, I find them of comparable quality to what I could get at the hardware store for the same price and more than adequate for newbie to intermediate modelling tasks. Having real flush cutters is wonderful too after using wire clippers with a rounded back for so long.

    The gaming aids are also very nice. The vision arc/wheeling device has been most helpful in nearly every game I've played in as has the Fear, Terror, Dispel Scroll, etc. tokens.
    Do not question the dice gods for their wrath is swift and terrible.

    Thanks for the advice. I really do need some decent stuff, I've been using sub-par stuff for too long.

    My thoughts exactly.

    i got their vehicle status markers just recently and i'm pleased with them. they are plastic, but have some velvetine underneath so they stick to the models. Also, their warmachine stuff is quite nice.

    two thumbs up from me.

    Their Warmachine/Hordes-stuff is essential.

    They have a nice range of tools indeed. I would recommend them.
