three DBA armies for sale
« on: February 28, 2018, 05:34:12 PM »
In clearing out the cupboard I came across these 3 armies that I've never used nor am I likely to. Therefore I'm looking to sell them to anyone who might give them some battle experience.

The armies are: classical Greek, Crusaders and some sort of Arab / Islamic type.

They are 15mm and appear to be based for DBA (well they are on 40mm frontages anyway) with about 14/15 bases per army. They were painted by my brother so are of a reasonable standard (certainly a lot better than I could) and generally in good condition but might warrant a bit of touching up. Hopefully the photographs in the attachment give sufficient detail for potential buyers, but if not let me know and I can send the word document where the photographs are a lot clearer.

I'm hoping on getting £30 per army but would consider deals for an interest in more than one.

I'm planning on going to Salute this year so could do the transfer there, or could meet up somewhere in the East Anglia region, or send by post.

Any interest or offers? There appear to have been a number of lookers but no interest as of yet. Please feel free to distribute document wider.

Am keen they go to a kindly commander rather than be consigned to landfill.

Certainly look like nicely presented little armies. I already have enough to sink a small battleship, so not in the market unfortunately. Good luck with the sale.

Yep, nice when it works. I think that David Edwards acted as ‘middle-man’ to collect the armies from Salute, so thanks also to him....
The buyer may be planning to play at the Portsmouth DBA tournament on 19th May, so may meet him there.......another convert 😎, perhaps.
