I would love to see Quar on the battlefield. I realize they're a bit WW1 in style but they have an aesthetic that would fit well in WWW2. Besides, who knows what sort of creatures might be born in the laboratories of this dark age or have crossed over the void from some alternate dimension during tesla field experimentation.

Let me know if you need some fodder for bulking them out in terms of toys to convert for vehicles or to borrow allies, etc.

Mike got my only German tank a while back, but if anyone is wondering how to quickly add some punch to their force, may I remind you all that the classic Army-Man M48 tank is dang near perfect in scale and will take paint pretty well if washed and primed correctly.

I think I sold those two off, but I can see if I have more and also since we're planning so far out, I can probably pick some up in my resale travels over the next couple months for very little $.

Haven't had a chance to ping in here yet, but would definitely be interested. Don't have the rules, but def have a few armies I could slot in here, expanded setting or no. So count me in. Cheers

Excellent John!
IIRC, you have a nice Axis force.

So far it looks like we potentially have
Karl- British
John- German
Michael S. - German
Tim- Soviet
Mattias- Quar (Partisans?)

I notice we haven't heard from Mike C yet... I assume this would be up his alley.

Models to share, give, sell:
-Tim has some German Armor to loan.
-I found a TimMee M48 like the ones I mentioned earlier. Free to whomever needs it.
-I have Josh's Very large US army. Might be big enough for 2 forces if we have other folks who want to join in.
-I have a Dust Tactics Punisher US 6 legged walker that I'd let go for $15. No box or cards.

I do have a scifi German themed army, or I could also use my Japanese sci Fi robot themed army if you want an alternative faction. Would need to lay a good amount of paint on either, but would be nice to get one or both on the table.

Good to know. I think the German might be easiest to Jive with the K47 rules.

There have been some rumblings about a new ruleset, but nothing necessarily to suggest that it will be out by early next year.

Possibly of particular interest to Mattias, Quar are getting a plastic release next year.

Found a couple more toy soldier M-48's bringing the total to 3. Free to whomever needs. I might even be willing to basecoat them in Krylon Fusion (adheres to soft plastic) in a suitably camo color if I can get a warm enough day.

Better get painting!

Do you have any plans for vehicles? While the M48 might not be a great match for the Quar, I may have some other options.
