So after some time with Mother Russia’s finest I finally managed to get past real life and arrange a 1250 point K47 game.

As the war in New Guinea dragged on into 1947 the Japanese rift tech was taking its toll on the Aussie forces fighting in the Dense jungle.

Our TO asked for themed lists complete with a back story and players were allowed to select a single tank platoon or up two reinforced platoons from either Konflikt ’47 books released to date. I wasn’t initially playing […]Read more "Running a Tank Platoon in 1250 point tournament"
So, the challenge was a 1000 point army in 6 weeks. As those of you I met at I17 know, I made it – just! Once again, I had the normal event experience of finishing my basing within 24 hours of event start!

I was off on holiday over the recent school break in the UK and having been a bit frustrated with the paucity of my K47 hobby output I decided to set myself a challenge.
