I’m looking for painted pieces for my A&A 1940 board game. If anyone has extra’s they are willing to part with please let me know!
Not looking for anything specific, just painted pieces I find cool.
I’m selling custom axis and allies pieces. You can buy them individually for:
$.30 for Infantry, artillary
$.40 for Tanks and subs
$.50 for fighters and bombers
$.60 for Battle Ships, Cruisers, Destroyers
If you choose not to buy them by the piece you can buy an entire game. 1942 1st edition costs $60, 1942 second edition costs $80, 1941 costs $50, 1940 second edition (Pacific or European) costs $110. If you’re interested message me or comment
The War in Vietnam, the game (BGG link: boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/247926/war-vietnam), should be a source of 50s to 70s military hardware, both “free world” and “communist bloc”. If you are looking for something more high tech, I can think of a few options:
Command Post Games (www.commandpostgames.com) makes a game called Supremacy 2020, which is a game about world combat in the coming decade. While there color palette is similar to the Superpowers game, you might find something to work with in their expansion sets for 2020, among them: “Bombers (B-2 Spirit looking things) & SLBMs” and Fighters (F-117 looking things) & Carriers", and “Glow in the Dark Mushroom” clouds, for the inevitable nuclear exchange awaiting us all in warfare in the future.
Websites that cater to miniatures gamers, such as www.skytrex.com and panzerschiffe.com, often have “post war” designs, including some that would be considered modern today.
And finally, Historical Board Gaming (www.historicalboardgaming.com). While they are best known and currently oriented around WWII plastic miniatures (read - Axis & Allies expansion pieces), they are working on a series of games spanning from the 1860s to the 2050s. Once they start producing miniatures to suit the later end of that range, you will likely find something you can work with.
Assuming anyone is still wondering, HBG has put their wrong color pieces up for sale, at blow-out prices: $2.50 to $2.00 for a set of 10 pieces, twice the usual amount. The wrong color sets came in for Axis Minors in German Grey and Italian Brown, Russia Early War in Russian Maroon, Japanese Sets 1 and 2 in Burnt Orange, and Neutral sets in Blue, Green, and Grey. Links below, and happy hunting!
––If you should end up with a surplus of the “cardboard airbase markers” I would be interested in buying them from you. And you can almost always find some A&A-Guadalcanal games on Ebay, just wait for some at your right price.
