Part of the reason for building the Warhamateur site was so that I had a good platform for sharing the guides I’ve written, which are (so far) mostly focused on saving money. Until this point they have been primarily posted at The Warp Storm, but here I can give them a little more spotlight treatment.
As part of my research into ways to save money I’ve come across a small number of webstores that offer a partnership or affiliation scheme. Full disclosure time: the way this works is that I tell you about a place where you can buy models and hobby supplies, usually much cheaper than retail price, and in return if you buy anything from them I get a small kickback at no extra cost to yourself. It’s an easy way for somebody to say thankyou for being shown a way to save some pennies, basically!
So, who have I affiliated with? Below you’ll find six stores, all of whom offer good value for their area – I have intentionally tried to stay away from places that don’t offer competitive prices, so as to keep things as cheap as I can for everybody. You’ll also find brand links, Amazon links for those things you can’t find elsewhere, and my message board, because we all love a little self-promotion!
Rosemary & Co offer some of the finest sable brushes that you can find, at prices far below most other brands. They also produce the Artis Opus brush lines – if you buy the R&C branded equivalents you can save yourself a few pennies!
Series 33 (the same as the Artis Opus Series S)
Series 323 (the same as the Artis Opus Series M)
Model Dry Brush (the same as the Artis Opus Series D)
For those in the US who might have difficulty importing Kolinsky sable brushes you can also consider the Series 99 set.
Hobby Workshop (Barnsley) is my retailer of choice for hobby goods.
With a discount of 22% on GW products (and 25% off pre-orders!), free postage on orders over £75 and a 1% reward on their loyalty scheme I believe they offer an all-round value for money service.
Aussenposten Tabletop (Ettlingen) offer 20% off RRP, free postage above €100, loyalty rewards of 2-5% based on your lifetime spend, and an additional 5% off with coupon code E8CA9ED2
💬 The Warp Storm
The Warp Storm is a small hobby message board primarily focused on the 40k universe, but open to hobbyists of all types and experience levels.
If you’re looking for a place to show off your work, get modelling advice or inspiration, or simply talk about the hobby, then we would love to see you over there!
