been a while scene my last post but I've been busy finishing off another army for my Zumatan Dictatorship the Royal Zumatan Navy. For years I've admired all those WW2 D-Day you see at wargames shows and in glossy wargames mags. So when I saw the rules for Boats and river craft in the AK-47 rules I was struck road to Damascus like and decided to do a navy. Like all AK armies there are five units
Unit 1- Professionals (1st troop Zumatan SAS)
x4 S/A bases, x1 transport helicopter (Wessex) air support from fleet air arm Cessna
unit 2 - Regulars (Royal Zumatan Marine commandos)
x4 S/A bases, x2 LVTP (MG)
Unit 3 - Militia (Royal Zumatan Navy sailor's landing party)
x10 S/A bases, x3 LCA landing craft
Unit 4 - Regular (HMS Cleopatra jet powered patrol boat)
counts as x2 A/C one with tank gun one with A/A gun
Unit 5 - Regular (PTB 212 ex ww2 us)
counts as x2 A/c one with tank gun one with an A/A gun
As well as painting up the units I made three army specific objectives in the form of some bunkers to capture.
Miniatures are a mixture of Peter Pig and Skytrex. Both ships are old Heller model kits. the Landing craft are conversions of 1/76 Airfix pontoon bridge boats. The air support are cheap toy die casts. The marine LVTP in full and waterline versions are from peter pig. The armies not quite finished as I haven't painted up any dead markers yet and I need to paint up four sailor heavy weapon bases form the political charts.
As any army I doubt this will be very effective, and the rules and scenery may needed fudging. After all I can't really defend with this army and the table needs a large body of water. I'm also tempted to use the the artillery support rules from the Lebanon supplement to represent naval gun fire and shore batteries.
Anyway enjoy the pictures.
