For Sale - Huge Afrika Korps force for Flames of War

I'm planning a big holiday next year and I have the realisation that I'm not going to be playing Flames of War again any time soon, so I'm going to sell off my forces to contribute towards the cost of the round the world trip.

Top mate Lee has already had a great deal on my Soviets, and now some lucky chap can get hold of my 21st Panzer Division Afrika Korps force.

It's bloody huge, I just did a quick tot up on the Flames of War web-site and it would cost you over £450.00 just to buy the figures.

The force comprises:

Company HQ: Two SMG Command teams, Kfz15 field car, Motorcycle Combination.

PanzerGrenadier /Schuetzen Platoon: Command SMG team, six MG teams, Kfz15 field car, two Kfz70 trucks, captured CMP truck.
PanzerGrenadier /Schuetzen Platoon: Command SMG team, six MG teams, Kfz15 field car, two Kfz70 trucks, captured CMP truck.
PanzerGrenadier /Schuetzen Platoon: Command SMG team, six MG teams, Kfz15 field car, three Kfz70 trucks.
Heavy Weapons Platoon: Command SMG team, four MMG teams, three 8cm Mortar teams, Observer team.
Anti-tank Platoon: Command SMG team, three 5cm PaK38 gun teams, Kfz15 field car, three SdKfz10 halftracks.
Anti-tank Platoon: Command SMG team, three 5cm PaK38 gun teams, Kfz15 field car, three SdKfz10 halftracks.
Heavy Anti-aircraft Platoon: Command SMG team, two 8.8cm FlaK36 gun teams, Kfz15 field car, two SdKfz7 halftracks.
Light Anti-aircraft Platoon: three SdKfz10/5 halftracks.
PanzerKompanie HQ: two PzIIIJ(early)
Panzer Platoon: four PzIIIJ(early)
Panzer Platoon: four PzIIIJ(late)
Panzers: one PzIVF1, one PzIVF2
 Heavy Infantry-gun Platoon: Two Bison
Self-propelled Anti-tank Platoon: Two Diana
Armoured Car Patrol: one SdKfz 223, two SdKfz222
Self-propelled Artillery BatteryL Command SMG team, Observer team, two KubelWagen, Staff Radio Truck, four Lorraine-Schlepper.
eight Motorcycle combinations to mount PanzerGrenadiers as Aufklärungs
 four spare KubelWagens to mount PanzerGrenadiers as Aufklärungs or for command teams
two spare command teams, two spare observer teams
two exclusive objectives

Now as mentioned earlier this lot would cost over £450.00 to but from Battlefront and back in the day I used to do a bit of commission painting of Flames of War stuff and I would have charged over £800.00 on top of the figure cost just to paint this for you. But, it's a used force and there is a bit of damage to some of the figures and vehicles, so I'm only asking £800.00 for the lot, including UK postage. For overseas I reckon it would be about £70.00 to ship by UPS/DHL based on previous experience.
