AK47 Republic / Starting your AK army for real

A good start to an African army would be some armoured cars.
Easy to maintain and ship.
Can mount an HMG or similar.
Also makes the army look and sound more professional.
I thought the ferret would be a good start,
Found this one below but seems quite expensive.
What other heavy equipment would you want for your coup force.
Also what heavy weapons would you like. Give reasons for all choices please.



This armoured car seems quite expensive. Should we shop for light armoured cars first or heavy armoured cars?


Rare opportunity for a ferret project. Revolving turret with browning mount and commanders sight. Intercom and main radio present. Browning tripod and lots of CS and general goodies. Road registered with red V5. All hubs line up and tyres are good.
Will require some welding to the tops of the bin boxes and the plugs have been removed from the engine. The milage states only 3667 and is likely to be correct.
The 20 thousand pound ferret is now a reality especially this model. If we touch it the price will increase, we may well use this as a winter project and sell it fully restored next spring for telephone numbers. But itís available for sale now as is at .
£13,500 no vat

Only a personal opinion Sean. I have only played it three times but it felt like twenty. It does however have a lot of fans.  maybe there are some less "annoyed" reviews  out there. Please find and share Sean.

To put my comments into context, i dislike monopoly too for similar reasons.

People who like that sort of thing will find it the sort of thing they like. (AL)

The idea and period are great. The gameplay goes on  and on and on  and on and ........ Life is too short.   Use Lord Scrope whenever possible.  Just my opinion

The limited edition gamette packs will be around for about 6 months after the "event". The rules discussion should be a reminder of how they go.  Forum members will also get some priority.  I am expecting to sell about 10 packs total.

In recent years new terms have been introduced in order to change Christian overtones in our society.
An example is that of the Christian/first name interchange.

The more recent is changing BC   to BCE (before current era).  Also changing AD to CE (current era).
Of course such terms as AD/BC are  a waste of time unless your  reference is European/Judaic. Japan is centuries ahead, Islam is centuries behind etc.

The question is this. Have you adopted the new BCE/CE, or will you die using BC/AD and leave it to new generations?
I personally don't mind much, but it does out mode a lot of my books. Along with judge Dread, Space 1999 and Raquel Welch.

No problem Les. It will be available from the PP website. The intention is to put it on as a pdf. The  older ones will also stay available too.

I suspect only 7% of the nation can calculate compound interest and really is important.

Folk can learn the most complex of ideas if it is important to them. Otherwise it is all luxury.

I am always disappointed by folk who bemoan the lack of knowledge of others.
What they are often doing is a comparison between their knowledge on a specific subject and the lack of knowledge of others in that same specific topic. I expect that they know that they are fooling themselves.  They attempt to boost their own virility by picking on easy targets. Same as those that "would have beaten them soundly" having seen some violent villain get put into prison in a distant county.  Tiresome.
An example would be the very nice chap who told me that Boolean algebra was used in glazing. Although most impressed, I asked him what Boolean algebra was? He said he had no idea (poor old George Fredrick). This sort of nonsense belongs with "my 7 year old knows more about computers than adults do".  Don't forget the "my child knows more than those teachers, therefore i will home school it".
We all know that 25/8mm is a terrible size to portray Towton in; 15mm is obviously the only size to do it in??!!
