I thought I would start a post much like Members Real Names

The purpose of this one, is that although we have this thread and the links section (which to be honest, we struggle to keep on top of), I thought it would be a good idea to have one thread, that shows links to certain websites, plus an image of what they have, that offer a unique or high quality product.

Therefore, if you know of any Website that offers a unique item for the hobby, please post it here, and I will make a link in the initial post, thus having a 'One Stop' post of Amazing Products' !

Antenocitis

01. NOCH Wild Grass Matting.
LINK
8mm grass matting. Ideal for longer grass areas and clumps of long grass. The matting can be cut into small sections to represent clumps of grass, weeds, and so forth, or laid as a tall meadow grass. The 8mm Wild Grass matting is ideal for covering over Hobbit Holes, large areas of long grass and can also be torn or cut into strips or clumps to represent long grass for road borders and so forth- its ideal for large areas of such cover and saves invaluable time.
Image
Overall: A fantastic product, albeit quite expensive for the average Hobbyist !

02. Fine Leaves.
LINK
Easily applied to Vine Stems or Dungeon Creepers or simply dusted over trails of glue (easy to do using the Pin-Point Glue Syringes in our tools section) as shown on the image below. Four different colours to chose from and they also make wonderful pond plant leaves and can be used on figure bases as fallen leaves or yellow or cherry blossom.
ImageImageImageImageImage
Overall: These leaves are 'tiny'. Fantastic for applying to trees for leaves or just general foliage..worth every penny !

03. Fine Talus.
LINK
"Talus" otherwise know as "Ballast" or scatter, rubble rocks and similar. Our Talus comes from Green Scene and is made from ground nuts to produce a very regular sized lightweight but solid material. The fine Talus is very regular and ideal for using on figure bases
Image
Overall: A lot of Newcomers get confused whilst basing their miniatures with the products available, mainly from GW. This product is 'finer' and far superior to any product I have come across, and offers excellent, minute detail to basing ... worth its weight in gold!.

04. Tree Formers "Forest in a Box" (Sea Foam).
LINK
"Seafoam" is a totally natural product that makes for the best looking custom trees possible. There is no competition to the visually stunning trees you can create with these formers.
This product uses a natural plant material to create stunning trees easily and simply. The "tree" can be used either "as is" or sprayed with adhesive and covered with fine grade scatter/foliage material. There is sufficient material to produce approximately 20-24 trees. Literally a 'Forest in a Box'!

ImageImageImage
Overall: This item is very fragile, but if used correctly, creates some amazing trees, bushes and hedges. Very easy to use.

05. Rubberised Horsehair.
LINK
It is, literally, rubberised horse hair and is a very tough and durable material - cut it up and cover with scatter material for trees or hedges.

Yeah I buy woodland scenics. For 10-13 bucks I have more flock of a certain area of middle earth than Ill ever need to use to base.

They make some terrain pieces that can be useful for Middle-earth purposes, as well as wider ranges maybe more suited to other fantasy games, sci-fi games and even WW2/steam-punk games.
Middle-earth examples:
By the wayside: http://www.thomarillion.de/index.php?se ... prache=gb_
This could be used for the Amon-hen area, Ithilien, Osgiliath and other areas that were part of the Numenorean kingdoms
Ruins (several versions)

Columns: Osgiliath, Amon-hen and Amon Súl

Statues (various) - Middle-earth was littered with these in all shapes and sizes

The Spaniards have delivered again, this time with some fantastic scenery pieces. The "Medieval Tower" would be perfect for Gondor/Arnor. There are also dwarven pillars and a great dwarf statue that would be perfect for Durin's halls.

The Dwarven statues are great, my friend uses them for his Moria ruin terrain.

Tired of defending the peasants? maybe some animal shaped tokens for your next raid? Warlord Games has an entire farm available for your modeling pleasure.

Yes, they may be a touch expensive, but most others are made of metal and would cost twice this much. Plus, they're adorable. I always enjoy sneaking a cat or mouse in a project and seeing the surprise on friends' faces when they see that extra level of detail.

Just five sprues will get you all the cats you'll need for Queen Beruthiel! ;) It certainly is a nice set though, good variety of animals and great level of detail too looking at those pictures.
