AK47 Game

I had a very enjoyable game of AK47 last night at the club, with my dictatorship army defending against Andrew's very nicely painted and properly tooled up Popular Front militia army. The political phase went badly for Andrew but I managed to get a unit upgrade and +1 firing bonus, so a good start for Mbote. The game then kicked off but with both sides only having one unit on the table, followed by a bit of a disaster as my lone jeep raiders were routed by the end of turn four. 



I was very lucky to get a hardcore militia technical unit on as reinforcements and it did pretty well holding off the bulk of the flanking enemy units, which rolled onto the table en masse in subsequent turns. I managed to rout one enemy militia unit with AAA fire from one of the technicals, but my unit was eventually knocked about and scarpered shortly afterwards.



Once again, luck was on my side and a unit of regular infantry upgraded to professionals in the political phase took their place. Some jammy dice rolls gave them two consecutive air strikes on another of the enemy militia units, which was forced to bugger off, leaving my infantry in control of one of the objectives at the end of the game. The victory points were added up and it turned out to be a draw, with neither side winning enough points to swing the result.



Andrew had some pretty dismal dice throws throughout the game, with a bad political phase and a succession of doubles causing breakdowns, ammo shortages and other mayhem, while I had uncharacteristically good luck with the dice, which made all the difference. I still didn't get two of my units on by the end of the game but I managed to scrape through by the skin of my teeth. It was really good fun and we're definitely going to have another game at some point to settle the score.

  1. Glad to read that you had a good game, but I expect that there will be some changes in the MDF hierarchy as a result of failing to win!! Or will things remain 'as is' due to succeeding in not losing? 😉

    1. I'm pretty sure this will be a massive victory for the MDF..at least according to MBC TV.

  4. Neat to see a new battle including the new units. Trying to fire up the locals for a game.

  5. Thanks for the enjoyable game Jim, despite my bad dice on the night. The oppressed Mbuntan minority will continue their crusade to establish an independent democratic Marxist state on their traditional tribal lands...
    Until next time Jim!

  6. Uh oh, let's hope the communist rebel activity doesn't spread across the border to Litumsia where the communist-inspired MCC (Militia Campaign for the New Congress) has been has been licking it's wounds since the last flare up in March!
