I say ebay as well
its pretty safe and secure these days and alot of the ebay stores will ship internationally (will just take a while on delivery)
but you can get so much so cheap that I hardly ever buy from a store anymore

For overseas prices like they used to be before the embargo * thinks back wistfully * you'd probably need to go with eBay. Normal trade suppliers are restricted by the new terms so can't sell to us - even Amazon which I wondered if they may have not had the same restrictions levelled due to their size and not being a traditional supplier of GW, won't ship them here.

Otherwise there are local Aus retailers who offer a discount (usually 20-25%) so you can find a supplier here if you can't find cheaper eBay options, or if you are using a local store and want to support them. Some are on eBay as well.

Some examples
ScrapDragon (http://www.gamingdragon.com.au/) has been around for a long time and do 20% off (website linked is their GW product sales website, or search for them on eBay).
Military Simulations (MilSims) (www.milsims.com.au) offer 25% off and I occasionally visit their store for sales etc
Realm of Legends (www.realmoflegends.com.au) is my local store, and they also have 25% off GW products (and have a fantastic setup for gaming boards and modelling bits/supplies from other companies).

I'm sure there are a number of others and in other states (depending on your location) - when the embargo first came in last year I think there may have been some threads discussing other options/retailers.

Almost all my eBay auctions in the last 3 months have been won by Aussies.
Considering it's cheaper to buy in the Uk and get it shipped to the other side of the world, eBay is definitely your best bet.
I'm selling 4 Tau Battleforce boxes btw. Just thought I'd casually mention that. I should also casually mention that you can PM me if interested.

Another good one inside Aus is www.bunkergames.net (http://www.bunkergames.net) with 25% off and free postage in Melbourne, or www.blackcultist.com (http://www.blackcultist.com) with 25% discount and free postage in ACT I believe. Bunker Games also has something about buying coupons that give you more money for what you spend or something, so can make things a bit cheaper again.

Saying all of this though, Ebay is still the best for us Aussies, particularly buying individual parts from Hoard O Bits and other bits stores. Often works out the cheapest if you just get the parts you need.

I know this is an old thread but I couldn't find anywhere else to post this- does anyone have experience with Bunker Games Melbourne? I ordered a few dark elf kits but it's been over a week and no response, not even an order confirmation. Bit worried as it was a pretty big purchase.

Hi, orders some paints from these guys at the start of this week. Haven't heard from them and the mobile rang out to a generic voice mail. Sent them an SMS. Did your order pan out?

Cheers

I've just placed 2 orders with Bunker Games and had no real communication from them. I am super worried after reading the above posts :(
If anyone has any info or results, let me know.
