These are some pictures that I grabbed early on in last weeks big club game of AK-47. The legitimate government of Tonkistan, mainly represented by Aiden's hodge podge of infantry and scratch built vehicles, bolstered by US aid in the form of my US Marines, Ian's US army and Phil's Israeli infantry and armour took on the communist backed insurgents of Pete's dictator army, Mark's ?Jordanians and Ben's ?Syrians.
Here my US Marines M60s cautiously advance to gain good firing positions in the fields on the right of the picture.
Israeli infantry occupy the town, while their heavy armour take up good firing positions in the side streets.
A convoy of ?Syrian technicals advance somewhat incautiously.
Pete's superbly painted Peterpig dictatorship army - had to get some pictures of these as they were fantastic. Here a unit of Buffels, loaded with militia, with an AML-90 on point advance on my marines.
A unit of Pete's T-55s supported by a bewildered group of militia (bewildered as they wondered where the tanks were heading off to in such a hurry).
A units of Mark's infantry starting to become entangled with Pete's milita as they both make for the wheat field in front.
The game went well for me. My tanks used the cover of the cultivated fields to good effect, shrugging off various tank and A/C shots and eventually knocking out both T-55s and keeping other units at a healthy distance. The USMC infantry flank marched, taking Pete's Buffels in flank and breaking them before digging in against a couple of units of militia advancing on foot. In the centre, the Israelis lost a lot of their armour to artillery, air strikes and other unpleasantness, while on the far left, my US Army buddy managed to let his M60s stray too close to militia in cover and were RPG'd out of the fight.
Still a bit slow, but we are picking up speed as we get more familiar with the rules and Pete and I enjoyed our own little private struggle on our edge of the table.
Thanks for looking,
