TZG.com Models & Painting Index
Post links to threads here you think should be included in a "comprehensive index" of important discussions about models and painting. I will edit this post into a nice "Table of Contents".

Argh, just spent over half an hour updating and adding detail to this and then whoops, reverted it. Assuming there's no way to get it back. Maybe after a couple beers I'll feel like redoing it. Crap crap crap.

RE: TZG.com Models & Painting Index
Might I add Maelstrom Games (http://www.maelstromgames.co.uk/ ) to the list of miniature suppliers? While they don't produce much themselves, they have a very wide range of minis for pretty much anything. Adding to that, free international shipping, payback systems, price guarantees etc etc. I have shopped there for many years already and they have always delivered. For zombies, you could check out their range of Secrets of the Third Reich miniatures.

Another shop missing from the list is Heresy miniatures ( http://www.heresyminiatures.com/shop/ ). I haven't made any transactions with them, but some of their minis seem to fit the bill.

Hey Trev,

I just watched one of your videos and subscribed to your channel. I have to say it is so strange to hear your British accent. I mean I already knew that you were British but hearing you is a whole new level. Watchmen02 Nice job.
