Hello, I am a collector of Warhammer 40K at the moment and like steampunk too.
I was wondering has anyone got any suggestions for good Boardgames available in UK? (Preferably with detailed and paintable figures)

Cheers

If you're willing to go for victorian stuff, there's a popular game called Ticket To Ride. At the more dieselpunk side of things, there's one called Tannhauser, which also has some impressive figures.

There are a few discworld boardgames http://www.discworldemporium.com/cunning-creations/games-and-activities which are usually pretty good,

Something else I've seen is Cthulu Wars. I don't know much about it but as far as I can make out it's a 28mm scale skirmish type game in a Lovecraft-esque setting http://fenrisgames.com/shop#!/Cthulhu-Wars/c/6054050/offset=0&sort=normal

I've run into some Infamy enthusiasts.

If you're looking for minis, Renaissance Games is right now having a Kickstarter for (wooden kits for) miniatures-scale Steampunk terrain, airships and Victorian vehicles and buildings: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/renaissanceminiature/victorian-steampunk-terrain-and-road-river-tiles-i/description

Aside fom that, Reaper Miniatures has some cute Steampunk figures in pewter.

Hi, I'm new here and was looking to ask a question myself along similar lines.  I'd love to see a SP board game but haven't found one. I'm currently learning the rules of a Role-Playing game called (wait for it) 'Steampunk', by Uber RPG. (http://steampunkrpg.com/) It looks great fun, but it is Role-Playing, not a board game. In all seriousness, I think there's a market for a Steampunk themed boardgame, and if you're up for it, or anyone else is for that matter, I think you could make your own and sell the idea to a company. I did this many years ago with a game I called 'Labyrinth', but I was turned down by all the game companies that I contacted. However, a few years later, my game, in a simplified format but called 'Labyrinth' by Ravensburger appeared on the shelves. I hadn't copyrighted. My question that I was going t ask, was - is there anyone currently playing 'Steampunk' by Uber that I can get involved with? My location is South Wales, UK. Oh, another RPG available is 'Wolsung - Steam Pulp Fantasy'. I've also seen 'Malifaux' mentioned in the threads, and it looks great, though pricey if you collect all the books and figures.

Ravensburger makes a game called "The A-MAZE-ing Labyrinth" but it is not steampunk-themed.  There is a simplified version for smaller children, I believe.

It's a pretty good family game.

One could fairly easily do a remake of Risk, using figures of airships and dreadnaughts on a victorian age map.

One game that I recently saw is a Chtulu version of the excellent boardgame Pandemic. It's made by the company behind the original Pandemic and has some figures that could probably work well for painting. Sadly I haven't had the chance to try it. Not steampunk but I figured it might interest you.
