Thanks to all the CiA organisers for putting on another great game. Just had a look at myself and I'm riddled with red dots from the numerous morning charges!

My only negative point was that once the tunnels fogged up, the fighting got a little too close. My sincere apologies to peppered for the close range shot! :(

anywho, carly and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, but had to retire 15 mins from the end due to fatigue!

Another cracking game from the CiA chaps (organisers and players both)!

The site was amazing - I didn't think it was as big as I'd been told, but it's huge! Can't wait to see what the place is like once the industrial area's have been cleared out and lit.

The whole day was a big mix of straight assaults and mad charges, alongside periods of absolute deviousness and sneaky-beaky work. Loved every second of it and I'm pretty bloody knackered now.

Bring on the next game is all I can say!

Amazing!!! I loved every minute, I'm glad we had a chance to play there before they light the whole place up. The atmosphere was amazing. Thank you to all the organisers. The props and sound effects were great. (My ears are still ringing from the end ex grenade!

My highlights - Seeing Headshot touch a door, and watching it dissolve!

Thanks again!

Finally got my arse back home. Havent bothered de-kitting the car yet though lol

Thanks to all the German and Russian players for getting stuck in. Thank you to the piston in the MG42 for taking such stupid amounts of abuse all day :twisted: . Ta to Dave B and the 16th for the 222 - it looked awesome in the tunnels, and thanks to the F&O bods for allowing us to use the site.

Now, can we start taking the piss out of Yith for being such a pansy that he had to bugger off and get some kip in the afternoon :lol:

I'd just like to thank all of the players for making such an excellent effort. The Russians came up trumps, both with the standard of their kit and, more importantly, by getting into character and following the crazy orders of the NKVD fanatic to the letter and without question. You guys took a lot of hits for the Motherland today and I thank you all for it. I was amazed that people kept asking me "are you going to use the whistle again for this attack please?"! As if you hadn't been mullered enough! :rofl:

The site was vast and it made command and control extremely difficult but you guys made it a pleasure. The assault on the map room was particularly well coordinated and very aggressive (sorry for those whom I used as a human shield for Porta! :twisted: ). Roll on the next Eastern Front event. :good:



When I want your opinion - I'll tell you what it is!

Cheers everyone!!!

As usual I was utterly unaware as to whether what we'd put on was enjoyed by people! We're often too busy trying to command and control we've no idea whether what we're doing is working, but obviously it was!

I was blown away by the the quality of the Russians' kit, especially given that a lot of the kit we had ordered didn't even turn up in time! Well done everyone.

As others have said, thanks to all who turned up and the tenacity you all showed. Thanks to those who bought vehicles too.

My highlight, taking a team down to the far end of the site by getting through a foxhole, then making our way all the way back up in the pitch black to hook up with another team and put in a silent ambush on a wedge of Germans. I'm not sure Chommers realised there were 12 or so Russian waiting in the dark when he assumed we were Germans! "Are you German?", "Da....I mean Ja!"

Bloody fantastic - great site, great players and joyful chaos! :D Russians put up some fanatical charges only to be mown down in their hordes - total respect for that, hope the bb wounds heal quickly!
Great day, thanks to all the organisers, roll on the next one!

What can I say? So many peeps due thanks:

The organisers for all their hard work
Stof for that lovely liquorice drink, and driving me up and back - you're a stalwart, mate! :good:
Dave B for his vehicles and his usual hospitality - cheers bud! I forgot those buttons! :roll:
Martin for his Jerry bread
Boshman for changing my spring!

Forgive me if I've forgotten anybody.

Was great to meet some new guys for the first time, and it was a super social night. As for the game, honestly, especially using a K98, it was chilling to hear that whistle and the "hurraaaah!!" as the Ruskies charged. :shock:

Towards the end, it was impossible to see far enough - mabye the site organisers need to review the use of thermobarics with all their smoke! I hardly hit anything all day, but my one fine moment came when I was stuck in a side room, picking off the Ruskies as they walked past. I think I got at least five before they chucked in a grenade! :lol:

A few favourite bits from me:

The site, obviously - but theres more to it than that. Down in the factory part of the complex, the fact that there were piles of rubble and other shite laying around added to the ambience. Have a look at pics of any battlefield - there is detritus everywhere. Most urban type sites in the UK are simply too clean!

Aside from that, it was fun to be able to use the '42 again, even if my knees are bruised to hell and back from having to repeatedly throw myself onto the deck so I could fire it off the bipod. (seriously, MASSIVE bruise on each knee :lol: ) It was most enjoyable mowing down the hordes of commie scum :twisted:

Was great to meet old mates and new faces - everyone got stuck int!

Yet another fantastic CiA game! Great site, superb gameplay, the ruskies did themself's proud, they look fantastic & the mass charges were brilliant!

Like Kermit, my knees and elbows are bruised and battered from going pron with the 42 but it was great fun! Although after seeing Jay's in action I think a bit of tweeking is required on mine LOL.

Big thanks to the CiA crew, F&O for the use of the awesome site, Dave B & the wasps for bringing their vehicles and finally all the players on both sides that make these games so amazing!

Oh and a big thank you to CW for picking up my MP40.
