This is not my idea. Nope. I straight up stole it from the "BigRedBatCave" dude. He has more Romans then any 6 wealthy people could ever have and he cranks through them. How? He buys painted lots. He fixes up the ebay "PRO" paint jobs. Then rebases the lot.
So far I bought 1 Army and 2 collections. For the most part the lot is playable and based for RF&F. The most I paid was 3.52 a stand and the lowest 1.27. That is based and painted.
There is no way to calculate the time it would have taken me to complete this much. 800 or so I have spent total, which includes dudes, rules, and terrain, killer deal!
111 Union Infantry stands. Properly based, some done well and some half assed.
