AK47 Ztum - Setum

A Miniature wargames campaign featuring rival warlords battling for power in an imaginary historical setting based on Africa in the early 1980s.

This web site is dedicated to the Ztum - Setum wargames campaign being run by members of the South East Scotland Wargames Club using the AK47 Republic rules from the Rules for the Common Man (RFCM) team at Peter Pig. The name Ztum-Setum comes from the names given to the campaign area by two groups of tribes. The highland tribes call it Ztumsia while the lowland tribes insist on Setumsia.
