Well me managed to start our first game of AK 47 Tonight Via video with my brother he played the force my daughter had rolled the other day, so he had five units against my two units
I set up the table as the border post and fence line with my infantry in the border post

and my other unit patrolling the fence

overview of the table, enemy coming from the left

they had a bridge to cross

Oh dear  :o Nothing to stop them crossing the bridge! Let's hope your reinforcement dice save you.
Great table. Looks very like one of has.been's layouts, the same sort of ghastly tactical choices I have to make. Never enough forces to cover everything. I look forward to seeing what happens.
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

gamer Mac, you are not going to regret getting into AK47. In terms of the equation"Enjoyment received v. Time and Money invested"  it was one of the best things I have done. We have had great fun with it.

Do what Vodkafan, Flatpack, JC, Dicemaster & I do...
Have fun & blame the dice.
I have 'won' the battle, only to throw lousy dice for the 'Apre-battle'
and 'lose' the war.
Historically accurate. Just been catching up on my reading. The Tet offensive,
where the VC took a pounding & militarily gained nothing, only to have a
strategic victory dropped in its lap by the US media.

Well it went a bit slower than expected still learning the rules
first off my brother changed the order of advance my daughter was going to use and led the way across the bridge with his two tanks with the two recoilless rifle armed jeeps set up at either side to give cover, the Random movement dice basically finished the first turn as the tanks only rolled  a 1 so even on the road it was a slow trundle that blocked the bridge  for the rest!
Because I am using my phone to film the action, set up on a shelve overlooking the table, I have not been able to take photos as the game was played so there might be a bit of artistic licence with any photos shown

There was some firing at the end of the first turn ,one of recoilless gun armed jeeps on thefar side of the bridge managed to take out my only HMG at the border post along with the APC it was in, but as the rules allow for simultaneous fire the same HMG took out the jeep that had fired at it

in the second turn the brave tanks slowly move off the bridge and take up fire positions on either side and the profesional truck mounted troops slowly advance on to the bridge when the militia technical zoom past and head for the border

but things don't go well for them

Bravo sir!  Having achieved that I would retreat from those two tanks and pray for the reinforcements to come soon...

(Following what Vodkafan said)
News reporter for CTV (Collinsville TV) 'Here are some of our brave border guards. Let's ask
                                                         them how things are going at the border'
(Troops run up, out of breath.)             'Why are you running guys?'
(Troops, trying to catch breath)        'Enemy...  tanks'
                              Reporter           'Which direction?'
                                                      'Well we ain't chasing the buggers!'

I don't know what to say guys
but the brave defenders of freedom that is New Bosia do not run at the first squeaking tank sound, if "tank" is the right word for these rust buckets approaching the border, my professional troops will hold at all costs and rely on their colleagues to come to their rescue
