I'm just getting started with 6mm, I've googgled 6mm ww2 figures and all I get is stuff in the UK. I live in the Great White North, I know there must be somewhere either up here or in the states, can someone point me to a place I can get 6mm WW2 figures?

Not to run down American dealers, but several of the UK companies are quite prompt and friendly--and microscale castings are not inherently expensive to ship. (I have always enjoyed having matched pairs of 2mm armies show up in an envelope.)

I'm in Canada and use GHQ and CinC for my microarmour. You can get it straight from their shops, but the Sentrybox in Calgary also carries GHQ, though you may not find everything you want in stock.

There is nothing at all stopping you from ordering from UK suppliers. We're all used to dealing with overseas orders on a very regular basis.

The internet brings the whole world's suppliers to your letterbox.

In Canada, shipping from the UK is noticeably faster and less prone to triggering expensive customs charges than shipping from the USA. Why, I don't know.

That said, the GHQ vehicles are much nicer than anything else, and they come from the States. For infantry you have a lot more options, with the majority of them being based in the UK.

GHQ have great vehicles

I have used Heroics and Ros as well and also Scotia Grendel – both of which are in the UK; they have a pretty wide range of infantry and I must say I prefer their infantry to GHQ

I am an "overseas" customer who has bought lots of 6mm figures from Baccus. I would recommend them – the figures are great and arrive promptly and safely even though I'm not in the UK.

Welcome to 6mm! I have bought from numerous sellers, in store and on line. GHQ and CinC are my favourites, but H&R fill numerous gaps, especially for specialty vehicles. Sentry Box in Calgary carry a solid GHQ collection, but it is never complete; on the other hand, there is a sales tax advantage in ordering from them and they're a great store to deal with. Imperial Hobbies in Vancouver also carries GHQ. The GHQ web store is also easy to deal with, and they have major sales once or twice a year, and a regular series of 36% off sales on selected models. From Canada, the web site sometimes has a hard time with entering a Canadian postal code, but phoning in the order is always easy and the turnaround is pretty fast.
