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!
I have a few North Africa pieces, but I decided I wanted to just collect War at Sea pieces for now. Everything will be sold/traded together. Here is what I have;
01/60 Australian Officer
09/60 ZIS-5 3 Ton
10/60 2-Pounder Antitank Gun
12/60 Bren Machine Gunner
20/60 37mm Gun M3
21/60 MG 42 Machine-Gun Team
31/60 7.5cm lelG18
35/60 Messerschmitt Me 110
36/60 Opel Blitz 3 Ton
37/60 Panzer IV Ausf. E
48/60 Wehrmacht Veteran Infantrymen
50/60 47/32 Antitank Gun
51/60 Autoblinda AB41
All of this comes to $29.88 on Troll and Toad so I will probably sell it for $20 plus whatever I spend on shipping/handling (cheapest shipping service I can find unless you specify otherwise). I will also trade it for 2 unopened boosters of any type as long as it is War at Sea. Finally, I will trade it all for open WaS pieces totaling $25 or more according to Troll and Toad prices. I will of course pay for my own shipping if we trade.
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.
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 looking forward to HBG’s set, but if you need some pieces prior to their release check out Shapeways and GHQ. Ebard has a great selection of French ships and GHQ,though pricey, has an equally great selection of armored vehicles. Planes are hard to come by, but I was able to find a few in the right size from Shapeways.
