    Save money, buy a digital camera with a timer, get a stick, pose and take photos. Or borrow a friend's camera and force him/her to pose for you as you take photos.
    Or buy lots of fantasy movies (like...Highlander, if you want swords) and do gestures and studies from those.

    Ya I could do that. Yet I know there are some great websites that have all this already done and I would just love if someone who has some of the websites could just throw them my way. Like I said I got characterdesign.com already which is a good one but I feel there must be a better action pose site out there. Any Helps?

    I'd buy this: Fantasy Figure Reference File

    edit: BTW - if you just need to develop skills any good pose books (Art Models books) or site will be fine. Otherwise TinyBird's suggestion about shooting your own reference is the way to go.

    Well this site is really good for gesture and figure drawing overall, especially because you can set a time limit for your drawing.

    There's another one like it, but I've forgot the address. Someone has it in their signature though.
