Ample Ammo, Vesa 'Viscerated (Again)

Niko's Point-of-View

Tuomas crouches near a small copse, calling out, "So, how are we going to do this? I'm pretty good at staying hidden." He adds, after a moment, "When we were going to take out the colonel, there was a guard posted a little south of the town itself."

Niko's left leg drags behind him a bit as he skis. Seems he moves a lot slower ever since that machine gun chewed him up, but the leg might be a fresh wound. He adjusts his rifle and pauses to scratch at his beard.

Niko glances to the northeast, continuing to scratch at his beard. "A guard posted, eh? Maybe we should circle around 'em… Better safe than sorry. Not worth getting shot at before we have the ammunition."

"Apparently one of us needs to run like hell…" Joona remarks mildly, shouldering his rifle strap. "And being the only one not dragging a lame foot or leg…" the boy notes as he follows after the pair of older fellows.

Tuomas glances around, muring with an odd, puzzled look at Joona, "My legs are fine. Anyway, it might be that they were just having extra security there because of trying to protect such a high officer. I was thinking about getting into the town - move up the ice until we're southwest of it, and then see if there really is a guard posted there. If not, we can all move into the marshes south of the town, and whoever is sneaky can go for the ammo raid, other people providing cover if they get spotted. Once we have the ammo, the people in the town can leg it West onto the ice… Should be a fast escape, that way." He glances around, the vague smile appearing on his broad face. "That sound ok?"

Niko shrugs. "I'd rather not go onto the ice. If there is a guard posted, and if they are looking to the west…" He shrugs again. "I have the semiautomatic rifle. If it doesn't jam, I can provide covering fire. Seeing as I can't run too well at the moment." Niko frowns. "Do the Russians still have that rat's tail they had last month?"

Vesa skiis up from the cabin, having fallen a few minute behind the others to take care of things inside first. As he comes up near Niko he stays quiet, listening to Tuomas' suggestion and then Niko's query.

Tuomas shrugs his shoulders, "I figure if they have a sentry to the south of town, he'll be watching the approach to the south, not the ice. I'd prefer not to circle around too far; and anyway, I think they had a sentry to the East as well, then. And yes, I think the gun is still intact and operational." He glances from Vesa to Niko to Joonas, waiting for other suggestions.

Antti skiis through the trees steadily from the south, until the farmer is within easy speaking distance. Catching only the tail end of Tuomas' words, he holds his own for the moment. Just listening at first.

Vesa glances back when he spies Antti come up, then looks back at Tuomas. He doesn't seem swift to be suggesting anything else, trusting Tuomas and Antti more than anything, and just shifts his rifle on his shoulder.

"What if there is a guard posted to the south?" Niko asks. "What's our plan then?"

"Who's fast?" Joona wonders, a brow up as he watches his compatriots, eyes going from one to the next and a nod offered to Antti as he falls in with them as well. "The rest of us can just keep them harried while some one makes a rush for their ammunition depot."

Antti sniffs ocne and rubs at his nose. "How's this: two of us approach from the south, two from the ice to the west. If one group gets spotted, the other group tries to sneak in, anxd grab the bullets. If neither group gets spotted the boys on the ice sneak in, and grab it with the others giving cover fire?"

"It would be poor planning if a person didn't sneak quickly…" Joona retorts, snugging his scarf around his face a bit as he regards Tuomas.

Niko shakes his head at Joona's words. "Rushing into a town, with no cover, when they most likely have machine gun emplacements?" He nods to Tuomas. "Slow and sneaky wins the race." He shrugs. "Well, I'm getting cold and my leg is killing me. I like Antti's idea. Let's split into two groups. I'll go south since I'm not too fast anyway."

Tuomas shrugs his shoulders, looking at Antti. Apparently relieved that someone else wants to tell people what to do, "Sure. Although I would prefer if they only started firing when, or if the people doing the snatch get spotted." He starts moving North, murmuring, "I can go via the ice, then."

Antti laughs once. "Sorry, I forgot. Figured that goes without saying."

Vesa nods a bit, listening. "I can go with Tuomas if you want," he says to Antti. "I'm pretty quiet on my feet." He glances at Joona, not sure how well the other teenager does with that sort of thing.

Antti lets out a short breath, through the scarf wrapped around his mouth. "Fine. I'll move with you-" he notes to Niko. "We ready, boys? Keep cool, and maybe we get out without getting shot at, eh? Let's go."

Tuomas nods to Vesa, starting out with any more instructions. Apparently not wanting to have his nuts frozen off waiting.

«Ground Combat» Tuomas moves North <N>.

Niko nods. He trudges eastward, ready to approach the town from the south.
"I'll cover from the south with Niko…" Joona notes, nodding a bit as he checks the field of view in that direction. "I'm a better shot than runner…" he admits.

«Ground Combat» You notice Joona arrive at Swamp/Marsh.

Antti trudges trhough the snow and ice, wary of the larger patches of swampwater- by habit more than real worry. Eyeing the northern patch of heavy wood, the farmer lets out a breath, and takes care to stay out of plain lines of sight as he wends his way north.

«Ground Combat» You notice Joona arrive at Forest.

Niko limps along behind Antti. "You know," he mutters. "Before these things, I used to get scared. Now, I don't feel much of anything." He laughs softly. "It sometimes feels like… a dream, eh?" He unslings his rifle and pats his pockets, checking for the umpteenth time that he has enough spare magazines.

Niko mutters, pointing north. "I see one Russian so far."

Sasha spots movement somewhere to the south. His rifle comes up, as he takes careful aim.

Antti mutters back, "You should always get a little bit scared. Means you still have something worth losing, I think. Where?" he asks as Niko notes a russian to the north..

Niko mutters, "I think he sees us. Or one of us."

Sasha nudges the dog by his side. The dog streaks off to the south.

Niko crouches behind some brush, practically face-down on the snow. "There's a dog coming… Jesus." To Antti, he hisses, "You good with a knife? If we move too much, Ivan will spot us."

Antti shrugs once, "Not so good with a knife. But if we shoot the dog, and the man, then the town will be looking our way, instead of west at the others. So if they come at us, dont be shy about shooting."

Niko sights the Russian. "Eh… I'm not so sure. Probably will miss. Too damn cold, I think. Plus he's in that foxhole."

Antti grumbles, "Hell. Even worse, now. Boys? Anyone have a good line on Ivan?"

"If you'd said something before he jumped in that damned hole," Joona grumbles as he attempts to draw a bead on the man, now behind a mound of dirt.

Niko shivers. "Well, I don't hear any shooting. So we can probably just sit tight and freeze to death," he mutters.

Antti sniffs, "I did say something. No matter now though. Well, we can try and move in on him. Or shoot from here and draw the town's attention away from the others. Hrm.."

Niko says, "Maybe we should just try to plug him from here and see if any Russians are stupid enough to investigate."

Antti sets aside his rifle and digs into the snowdrift at the base of a thick tree.. more concealment than anything else. "Might as well, really.. he muytters to Niko's words..

Niko crawls on the ground and slides belly-first into Antti's foxhole. "Let's hope there aren't more of them and they aren't smart enough to flank us," he murmurs, bringing his rifle to bear on Sasha.

Antti mutters, narrowing his eyes, "Ivan is looking the other way.."

Joona grins a bit as he moves into the hole. "I've got a fair line on him now…" he notes as he regards the other men in the hole. "We could draw his attention."

Niko murmurs, "I'm ready to shoot when you are. Might as well hit 'im all at once and see which of us is the Lucky Finn for the day."

Antti nods slowly. Let's do it. And if we kill him, we sneak up to grab the bullets sitting around. Then again, we do the same if we dont kill him and he runs, so.."

Antti mutters, "Wait for him to leave the foxhole. I'm going to try and grab the loose ammo…"

Joona grumbles irritably. "Sneaky fucker," he grunts as the russian drops out of his field of view. He lines up another shot again.

Niko nods to Antti. "Good luck. I'll keep pressure on him."

Antti mutters, "Better: shoot him int he head."

Niko smirks, "Easier said than done, Antti. Easier said than done." He raises his rifle and squeezes off another shot.

Sasha suddenly finds himself crawling a lot slower, when a bullet lodges itself firmly into his ankle. Ouch.

Niko fires and squints again. "Did I get him? I think he's dead." To Joona and Antti, he mutters. "They'll probably be looking this way. I wonder if they'll machine gun us…" He crawls after them.

Antti mutters, "Good, good. And they wont machine gun you if you dont move north."

"You're such a charmer, you know that Niko?" Joona grunts, chuckling a little to himself as he ducks back into the hole to reload his Mosin.

Niko says, "Did you want us to come die with you, Antti, or stay here?" The small man smirks and scratches at his beard, shrugging.

"Just get the damned rounds and run, you git," Joona hisses as he watches the would be runner dart in fiddle with a dead russian."
