Miniature Market had a few GMT games on sale for $22.75 and I ordered three of them and they arrived quickly(to the UK) and in the best packing I've seen yet from anywhere with liberal amounts of padding. As a result, the games were in pristine condition. I'm very impressed. If the condition that your games arrive is important to you, I can vouch for them. Brilliant!

EDIT: Oh yeah, here they are... http://www.miniaturemarket.com/

They were good considering the games were 75% off the price here. For games that aren't on sale, it gets cagey and you have to play it by ear. In the end including delivery, I managed to save around 30% off regular retail. Also the games I bought are hard to find here so there was that as well.

I've been tempted a couple of times, but the potential import tax bill (should it be checked) has put me off - next time I have friends come over I'll definitely put MiniatureMarket on the list of places to check.

I've ordered overseas a lot. Some vendors classify them as printed material which lumps them in with books which have no duty and others are conservative with the value but I have never paid duty on anything under £70. I know that isn't everyone's experience but in my experience over several years, this has been the case.

I have to agree with the packing, they are one of the best.
