Archived: Askaristan AK47

Back in 2003/2004, Stuart ran organised a 15mm modern ‘campaign framework’ using Peter Pig’s AK47 ruleset. The rest is history.

Campaign Downloads

The following downloads are available:

  • rules can be downloaded in Adobe PDF format by clicking here. (updated 18/04/03, now 4 units rather than 5)
  • campaign rules can be downloaded in PDF format by clicking here.
  • download the background newsheet in PDF format by clicking here.
  • Duncan’s MS Excel spreadsheet to calculate the points of your AK47 army. In the body of the work, you just type in the number of stands you want in the unit, and let the spreadsheet do the rest. Some of the lower fields on the page are ‘unprotected’ so you can type in notes. The Total Points (600 or 400) and the player’s target political points can be altered (hence the deep yellow colour), as can the country’s name, and socio-political type. (updated 18/04/03, to take into account the 4-unit limit)
  • AK47 record sheet in both MS Word and PDF formats.

“Perhaps to emphasise the point I should make players wear representative headgear for their group and talk in character whilst playing.”
