Rio Grande is a good place to pick up some tools and materials for conversion. I've found jewelers saws, files, pliers, tweezers, and drill tools here for very fine detailing.

Hah! Careful, or you might find yourself tempted into making your minis out of metal, with actual jewels for the detailing.

Fair prices, great service and a massive assembly of 1/35 manufacturers. I used to do alot of ordering through them after my local hobby shop went out of business and never had any difficulty getting what i needed.

Any recommendations on 28 - 30 mm 1900-1950 weapon bits for regular 40k Guardsmen? especially Mauser bolt action rifle bits? (with and without arms) please

So far the closest things I saw is Anarchy (can't remember the exact name) but the site presents Parabellum pistol, MauserC96 pistol (Autopistols), MP-40 (I dont think this is a good Autogun afterall), and MG40 (Heavy bolter/Heavy Stubber?) but no classic Mauser bolt action rifle presented there yet.

Somewhere in southern England.

As it is a large model, Tamiya spray cans would be a good option allowing you to create a smooth, multi-pattern camouflage design quickly and easily.

However the point of this thread is not to offer advice but to post useful information.

might make for some alright basing or something.

there's a few similar bits , and trees etc etc

The mirror lake or the lampposts etc might be of use too.

I recommend any High Grade Gundam models for Mechanicus or Tau robot/mecha conversion as a base or for the bits. They are cheap and are good quality injection molded plastic and you don't need to worry about the internal skeleton of Master Grade.

Great number of bits/conversion for a Missileside.

Anyone know if it's possible to get sprues of weapons (sci fi/ Cold War/ modern), without the figures? I have a dream of a Japanese armoured samurai equipped with heavy machine gun or laser cannon... or is my best bet green stuff and brass tubing?

Tau weapons in general might work pretty well . Found this on ebay by searching for "tau burst cannon". There were a few other 3rd party variations that came up as well.

Thanks for the tip - I should have said though, I'm looking for 1/72 (20mm) scale. I have a vision of guys like these: http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=448 armed with heavy ordnance...

Canfield Lead Solder for Stained Glass

Good heavy stuff for weighing down bases with. Needs a little flattening to get it into a 25mm, but it's pretty soft, what with being 50% lead.

You'll probably wind up on a list, but if you need a sheet of lead ... they'll sell it to you.
