AK47 Arms Bazaar!

I was sorting out my AK47 stuff after work today, as you do, and have decided to sell off my Colonial Settlers army that I painted up about ten years ago. I have used this army in many a game, some of which have even been victorious, but it's a bit long in the tooth and not really up to my current standard as far as painting is concerned, so it's got to go.

The principal motivation for shifting the army is the fact that I have another one all based up and ready for painting. This was originally designed as a Superpower Backed force but, the more I look at it, the more it shouts 'Colonial Settler' back at me, especially as it features loads of professional units and vehicles. I really want to get it painted up, so the old version has to go to make way for the new one.

The other motivation is to enable someone at the club to pick up an 'off the shelf force' for a potential AK47 multiplayer campaign. Although one or two people have AK47 armies most of those interested in the campaign do not. As there has been a lot of enthusiasm about a campaign at some point in the not too distant future, if I can help to get this off the ground by providing an additional army, then so much the better.

  1. I have to say, if those are not up to your standards, you have exceedingly high standards! Those are great!

    Why not just repaint them?
