Excellent european site for buying GK's!

Post by Tiberius on Thu Dec 31, 2009 9:18 am

Greetings, Brothers!

As we all know, the main problem of our forces is the fact that they're expensive. Really expensive. Both in points and pounds/dollars/pesos/crowns/rocks/shells or whatever currency you may be using. Now, a number of months ago, I bought myself a new Necron army (A whole army, we're speaking perhaps 2000 points or so Shocked ) for a very low price compared to what the items would have cost both in my local GW and on GWs sight. The store was located on eBay, but not that long ago, GW declared exterminatus on every store selling their wares through eBay, as well making sure internet prices wouldn't be as low as they had been in the past. Thankfully, this store managed to keep their prices almost as low as they previously was, and have opened up a site of their own.

Their prices can go as low as 30% lower than the official GW online store (!) as long as you live outside the UK, if you buy some of their bundles. I recently decided that I want to use my christmas money to bulk up my GK force, and thus, I went through my e-mail, since I knew I had received something from them telling me that they survived the exterminatus, although I had forgotten the store name. I did manage to dig up the mail, and found out their site name, which is as follows;

http://www.buyforlessonline.co.uk/

Now, many of their more generous offers come in bundles, such as three PAGK blisters (6 PAGKs) for 22.99 or three Land raiders (Yes, three Land Raiders) for 80.5! Now, this isn't that much lower for UK residents, but for us foreigners who live in the European Union, this is almost extreme. As an example, take the Land Raiders. About 80,5 in cost. That equals 925 Swedish Crowns. On our official GW website, a Land Raider costs 440 Crowns. Meaning that three Raiders would cost 1320 Swedish Crowns if bought on the official site. That equals about 115.

So, while this might not prove to be that much cheaper for you UKs out there, it almost certainly will for others who live in the European Union. Almost. At least us Swedes'. Wink So just look around, and see if you find anything that interests you!

Not sure what the rates are nowadays, you'd have to check Royal Mails website for them I guess. I'll try to find the details on my old Necron purchase and see what the rates were.

Dear Brother Tiberius,
thanks alot for this awesome site!
i've already placed my order and they shipped it yesterday, can't wait for my LRs to come home Smile Smile Smile
i've spread the word to my playing-mates and they all bow in front of you, mighty internet researcher Very Happy

cheers
Steel

EDIT:
for those asking about the costs of spedition, me and a friend took
- 1 LR
- 1 predator
- 1 razorback
- some green stuff
- the sculpting tools
- some grass for bases
- the drill

and i live in Italy (they ship from uk)
My shipping cocts were 19 / 15 , so that meant 9 each.
Comparing with the usual GW stuff i've got better things (the modelling stuff is from gale force nine and army painter, better then those from gw) and still saved around 20% of the normal GW price.

Very nice Very Happy

I'm glad to hear you've benefited from the site, brother Steel!

May I ask what you ordered? The "LRs" is a quite obvious hint, but how many, what type, and was there anything else included? I'm just curious to hear how the Emperor's Finest are expanding. ^^

EDIT - And the moment I post my question, your edit is posted as well! tongue

Brother Steel, is the dozer blade for your LR? May I ask how you are planning to model it on your LR? I have a version I posted in my thread (pics of your painted minis) but I'm not 100% content with it.
