I have 14 padded containers of GHQ 1/285 tanks, trucks, artillery and some infantry for Africa. Italians, Germans, English, and USA forces. A quick count is a little over 200 pieces, all painted.

Is this something anyone plays with anymore?

Not me, but yes.

Definitely a market out there for small scale items.
We buy collections to split into units/formations to resell and have sold lots of WW2 and Modern items recently – shame we're on the other side of the pond or we would happily make you an offer.
Maybe try listing them in the Marketplace if you were wanting to sell them.
Hope this helps

I do play North Africa in 1/285th scale and think there might be a market for those. Hopefully you will find a buyer< Bill.

Having said that, I already have a bunch of painted German and British vehicles and even a fair amount of infantry. Although not in the market myself, I would think someone would be interested.

This October, I will be running a North Africa game at Southwest Con here in the greater Phoenix area. This will feature my 1/285th scale North Africa micro armor.

I'm interested, and I'm about two hours away, but I'd like to see them before talking money. They'd supplement what I have, and Jim may have already topped my best offer. PM me if you're interested.

Robert, I am taking pictures tomorrow for Jim. I will send you copies.
