We have a lot of converters on the site so it seems like a good idea to share our resources for the minor items which are so useful in converting models.

So, please send in your links for suppliers of the following items:

Official GW Bitz
Conversion parts for GW models
Non-GW conversion parts such as; Heads and helmets, Weapons, Decals, Terrain bits (doors, lampposts, etc.), Diorama and detailing parts (oil drums, sandbags, ammo boxes,) Bases

Please post in this thread.

Include the URL and a short description, like this

Examples:
Hasslefree Miniatures (28mm)
http://www.hasslefreeminiatures.co.uk/range.php?range_id=39
Heads, helmets, mediaeval, modern and SF weapons, decals, bases.
Weapons are chunky, heroic design.

Pig Iron Productions (28mm)
http://www.pig-iron-productions.com/
SF heads and weapons.
Heads fit well on IG and SM models.

The Assault Group (28mm)
http://www.theassaultgroup.co.uk/store/home.php?cat=23
Mediaeval, WW2 and ultra-modern weapons, equipment and helmets.

Accurate Armour (1/35)
http://www.accurate-armour.com/showaaproducts.cfm?category=4&subcategory=33
Jerry cans, tow cables, stores, equipment and accessories.
Perfect scale for adding to 1/35 or GW AFV kits.

All suppliers recommended should be 28mm or 1/35th scale, for 40K and WHFB.

As the thread gets too long I will collate the info and make it into an article.

Shorpy is more a source for inspiration and reference. It's a collection of photos from WWII to the American Civil War. Useful when you're making some Mad Mek or Imperial Guard machine and need a reference that isn't too modern.

When you're trying to figure out how to get two strange things to stick together check out This To That The Internet Gluing Resource. Doesn't always have what you're looking for, and doesn't have options for multiple different types of plastics, but it's a good start for those days when you're trying to figure out how to stick leather to glass.

Gauss Boys is a supplier of neodymium magnets in many, many sizes, ranging from the size of a pinhead to a hockey puck sized nightmare that can screw up a computer from over a meter away.

Shapeways is a service that allows you to upload and order prints of 3D models. There's a few bits of 40K compatible stuff like this set of spare Killa Kan weapons made by yours truly.

Some accessories (roman crests, great on SM) but mainly a wide range of fantastic bases, weathering pigments, brass etchings, and scenery packs.

I love their bases, and pigments are well worth it for anyone who has never dipped into them.
