Last Ak-47 order delivered!

Haven't sat down to update the blog in a few days, but last Thursday brought the delivery of the big order I was waiting on from, the modified version of the order that Warweb failed to deliver. My Warweb order is now in Paypal claim department's hands, waiting for a refund. But in the meantime, came through with an unexpectedly rapid delivery.

Now I just need to find time to open all the packs and start sorting out my units for both armies, including extra troops from political maneuvers. I have a sneaky suspicion that I'll have enough left over to start a third army when I'm done. I'm particularly anxious to see how many of what is in the command/weapons packs with 50 figures total.

The AK-47 rules are not concerned with the specific types of small arms on an infantry base, with the exception of man-portable anti-tank weapons (RPG/Bazooka), crew-served heavy machine guns, mortars, recoilless rifles, and anti-aircraft weapons. So those are the main ones I need to sort out of the weapons packs.

A little more firepower

Yesterday's mail came very late, presumably as a result of the first day back from holiday meaning there was more mail to deliver. But it brought with it the heavy weapons from TheSceneUK. This means that all I now lack should be the big Old Glory order.

I received an email yesterday indicating another package was sent to me, which I hope is the Old Glory order, but didn't give me enough info to be sure. We'll just have to wait until it arrives and see!

A few reinforcements

Today's mail brought in my order from I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the jeep with RCL I'd ordered was actually a pack of 2 jeeps.

Last night, while moving some things, I finally found a missing wargaming box, which included some previously ordered Litko items. So now I have a total of 75 purple hearts, and 10 miniature smoke column markers.
