Maelstrom has very frequent discount actions.

Just make a profile on their site and you will be informed by mail.

Discounts are usually 15%. Sometimes a bit more but only on certain products.

I like total wargamer and triplehelix games. They both offer 20% of usually. Wayland and maelstrom ship things faster tho but only offer 10%. All 4 are reliable tho.

I love Miniature Market. I'm in the US, and they sell most GW merchandise for 25% off. Not sure how their shipping outside the US works. Worth a look for sure.

Agreed. I just started purchasing from these guys not too long ago and the service is fantastic. Plus, orders of $99 or $100 (I can't remember for sure) get free shipping in the USA, so I just batch up a few things to get that total. SCORE! biggrin.gif

Maelstrom has a 17% off UK RRP voucher going on, which ends on the 28th of March. It does not work on any Flames of War, Gale Force Nine, Kingdom Death, Studio MvVey or Too Fat Lardies (Whatever that is!) Or in their eBay shop.

The voucher code is: REVAMPED

The problem I find with online retailers offering discount is they tend to have high postage costs which significantly mitigates what you actually save.

For example I was looking to order a dark Eldar raider which Rrps at 20.50
I can get it from Darksphere for 15.38 plus 2.52 postage = 17.90
or from Wayland games for 16.40 plus 1.41 postage = 17.81

When it comes down to it I am probably more inclined to pay the extra 2.50 for the convenience of being able to walk into town and buy the model from the local Indy stockist rather than waiting a week for it to be posted to me.

In practice it's really only worth ordering from places like Wayland or Darksphere if you are buying the most expensive sets like the larger finecast boxes or several items because otherwise your saving disappears in the postage costs.

EDIT: I just tried Maelstrom with Theorox' code and my order totals at 17.01 because despite the fact that Maelstrom offers much less of a discount, they do offer free postage over a certain price.

Completely agree as far as walking in to town and going to a local shop, IF you can walk to a store that is cheaper than GW.
I either have to drive and pay for parking or get public transport which ends up costing more than the postage, i spose it's all swings and roundabouts though and most of the online retailers work out about the same, either more expensive product and free postage or cheaper product and paid postage...
The thing that does annoy me online is paying for items that appear to be in stock online and then waiting for weeks for the store to order them in, I've had that experience with a couple and it was very frustrating but never with DS which has given me a little more loyalty I suppose smile.gif
