The site exudes an air of professionalism and a true understanding of what a model maker wants from such a resource. It's well laid out, uncluttered, fairly priced and the delivery is well packaged as well as lightning fast. Only criticism? It's clearly so popular that 'in demand' bits disappear in an instant...more restocks please!
Friendly, fast and consistently correct. I have to give a plug to model bits because the service is exceptional.
It is not easy to get the bits I need because of my location. Yet, I have the internet and found modelbits.com now it is easier than ever. Best of all, I am a creative type that gets inspired to make things from bits and ordering from modelbits.com means that I get my bits fast so I can get on with using the bits to realise and comlete my ideas. Thanks, modelbits.com
I needed some model bits for a conversion, and I went through a few sites, but modelbits.co.uk had the best prices. Excellent postage, fast dispatch, the company let you know every step. I would definitely use the site again, just get some more bits in ;) your missing a few kits. Definitely better than buying the whole kit just for a few pieces.
I recently got into Warhammer 40K and can't help but notice that my bank account total has shrunk massively... Yeah it's a pretty pricey hobby.
Considering I don't play, I just enjoy building and painting these, it can be a bit of a pain the ass just to get little odd bits or even troops you want without getting stung.
Then I came across Modelbits.co.uk. At first I didn't trust it, especially considering Google Chrome decided that there was unsecure content on the website.
Just want to say right off the bat, ignore that warning. It's a false alarm, and I would also like to say that damn am I glad I did trust the site!
I used Paypal to check out so everything was nice and secure as well as lightning fast. And despite ordering a ton of things I wasn't penalised by ridiculous postage charges. (I'm looking at you eBay sellers...)
This is the list of things I bought,
1 x Assault On Black Reach Ork Deffkopta
1 x Blood Angels Death Company Backpack D
1 x Blood Angels Death Company Chainsword Arm - Left
1 x Blood Angels Death Company Chainsword Arm - Right B
1 x Blood Angels Death Company Shoulder Pad
1 x Blood Angels Death Company Shoulder Pad O
1 x Blood Angels Sanguinary Guard Head B
1 x Blood Angels Sanguinary Guard Legs A
1 x Chaos Terminator Trophy Rack B
1 x Space Marine Body Back
1 x Space Marine Bolt Pistol Holster
1 x Space Marine Command Squad Standard Top A
1 x Space Marine Commander Accessory - Cloth and Purity Seals
1 x Space Marine Commander Body Front
2 x Space Marine Purity Seal
That looks like a hefty load and that it would sting you considerably, especially so because you get to choose exactly what you want.
Quite the opposite is true, I paid £12.00 for all of that. £1.50 was postage and it was shipped in a small jiffy bag.
I was rather pleased I managed to create a custom soldier and get an
entire Deffkopta in great condition for a fraction of the price I would have
paid to obtain it any other way. (Single bits on eBay are around £2.50)
So yeah, all in all when the items are in stock, this website is an excellent way to get hold of those bits you've had your eye on.
Modelbits is a really great service for Warhammer hobbyists such as me. I have used the site three times now and will continue to do so in the future. The only problem I would say is lack of bits for army's that aren't space marines, but this is understandable and a problem across the board on all model bit sites.
Modelbits to me is the most updated and restocked site, I hope this increases in the future.
First of all the website was easy to use and find the parts I wanted, The ability to use paypal made payment easy (some sites still do not have this function and has in the past prevented me from using them) Within seconds of making my order an email was sent to confirm, and regular emails arrived to inform me of the state my order was in and when it was dispatched. All in all I am very happy with the service.
A pleasant transaction. Quick processing and dispatch of the order and a speedy delivery. Only wish the site had a wider selection at the time of ordering, but we can't have everything!
It was my first time purchasing from this store nd it definitely will not be the last. The model I received was excellent quality and I recieved it within just a couple of days. I am so happy.
I am still missing a piece which didn't arrive with the others, and despite several emails I haven't gotten a response from them yet. But they are still a good bit-ordering site, with great packaging. Just wondering when I will have my sentinel legs.
This site turned my warhammer/40k modeling upside down by giving me access to tons of bits for very good prices. If I have an idea for a cool conversion I no longer have any trouble getting the parts I need.
Also, the shipping was super fast (I live in Sweden).
Thank you Matt of modelbits.co.uk!
The products where exactly as described. I was anxious about the purchase as my browser (google chrome) said the site wasn't a secure site. If you experience this problem don't take any notice! The servce was top notch. Excellent seller.
Confirmation given that order had been received
Confirmation given that order had been dispatched
Order arrived in good condition
All of the above was achieved in a timely manner
Website was easy to use- ability to use Paypal is important to me
I would certainly order again
Found this site last week after reading where someone else got 40k bits from and had a look... It is so refreshing to find a bits site that A) has almost everything you could want for 40k B) actually has most of the bits in stock (unlike some other sites i could mention) and c) they are priced very competitively.
Service and delivery were brilliant, will definitely be shopping here again.
Thanks very much!!
J'ai déjà commandé a plusieurs reprises sur ce site et a chaque fois rapidité, sérieux et emballage des pièces parfait. Je recommande a condition que l'on accepte d'en payer le prix (prix des bitz un peu élévé).
Par contre, les FdP sont raisonnable
I bought a few bits for a reasonably good price (even if it is more in Canadian dollars), and they shipped in quicker than I had expected them to. The condition of the bits were great and without the normal damage you might find when ordering elsewhere. It was convenient to be able to build two extra models with just a few bits rather than having to buy them separately for far more.
Very truted shop - even I'm living in South Korea, modelbit's still very respecteble.
Fast, and Great quility. Recently, i have little problem(Forge world bit has hardly mold) but that is not a modelbit's problem (yes, this is Forge world problem, Thank you GW!)
Really respectable, and Fast shipping. I love this shop!
I found this site through beastofwar.com was linked in a article i think. Basically doing bits cheaper than all the rip offs on ebay with normal packaging and posting pricing. £1.20 for under half pound of weight is reasonable when you consider the weight of plastic or resin minis.
Bought some bits on saturday of easter weekend checked out all done sorted. Went looking the tuesday following Easter for some more bits for another convesion. Went on this site again ordered stufff checked out and asked if it could be packed together. Got a message straight back no worries all done. Got the parts next day!! Top service, great prices, excellent communication. Will definately use again.
This was the first time that I ever used ModelBits online services and the service provide was excellent. The prices, both of products and shipping costs, are very clear on the site as is the time it takes for the order to arrive. I placed my order last Friday the 16th and it arrive today, 23th of March. Every single item was delivered as requested, and was specifically itemized on the invoice, allowing for a very fast check-up. Also, I placed this order after receiving an email informing of the restock of the bits I wanted, which is a great way to keep informed without having to
check the site constantly.
I would recommend this site to all my friends.
