I'm currently looking for Plasticard for use in HT custom armour. It's often featured in White Dwarf magazine as a modelling material for buildings etc. It is some kind of styrene plastic sheet, I think. I would prefer to get hold of sheets that are slightly textured so paint will stick to it.

Any information about this stuff and its UK availability would be absolutely grand, thanks.

Basically this is styrene sheet, also called HIPS ( High Impact Polystyrene ). I've used http://www.esheet.co.uk/product-polystyrene.php in the past, although there's also a company called Stephen Webster that lots of people use: http://www.stephen-webster.co.uk

Flints also have some other sheet forming material.......but you'll have to sift through them to see what will be any good for you.
