Well i Thought I would start a thread seperate from the CIA thanks.

This was a real WW2 experience, loved being a commando in the morning, from Monties moral boosting speach (which being only a humble soldier I did not understand all the big words) to moving out with a sea of khaki, bergens and green beret's it was brilliant. Loved the way Dave and Pete roleplayed the officer/sergeant role, particulaly when the officer tried to send us in the opposite direction to which the sergeant was leading us, only to realise the sergeant was right and then blame him for his poor map reading skills :slap:

Excellant tension in woods as we scouted and assalted the German positions with Pete and Chommers bellowing out orders.

In the afternoon switched to German and had some fun with the MG34. I know this game is not supposed to be about 'getting kills' but when you are as cr^p at airsoft as i am, with shame I have to say I totally loved cutting down swathes of Khaki clad soldiers as they approached the bunker. Probably only the second time i have been able to use the gun too such devastating effect.

Big thanks to CIA and the rest of the players for making it such a great day.

If anyone has photo's please post them up :good:

I'll get a couple of pictures up later, but as I mentioned in the other thread this was another cracking CIA experience. Credit to all in attendance who got into the game, took orders from their officers and NCO's, and helped create as realistic WW2 airsoft game as you could get. The initial Commando attack onto the crossroads at Le Plan, and the German attack on the farmhouse were two of the best bits of airsoft that I have taken part in, in a long time. With the gaps in the action only serving to ratchet up the tension, and add so much to the firefights when they came.

The 'taking prisoner' of us Commandos who were swopping sides was also really well done - I had my heart in my mouth as 8 Germans jumped out screaming at us to lay down our weapons, and was then thrown to the floor by the German officer...only to then be welcomed in the Wehrmacht!

Thanks to everyone from organisers to fellow players - another superb event.

legs no worky.

Good. Every Commando 'in character' and brilliant to play alongside/just 'be' around for the day.

I even shot 2 whole people during the day, which was nice :pompom: - and then completed my hat-trick with a Farbain Sykes in the darkness of the bunker :twisted: - that's one German who will know to fear the dark when the word 'commando' is uttered (his friend, not him - he aint fearing anything no more - "the Jerry [link]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0YSbEtna4A[/link]")

I took charge of the Zib MG for a portion of the day. It's a heavy brute, but a great gun. Apologies to Charlie - after shooting him, his comrade then attempted to run through the same gap, and I hosed them both. :oops:

Fantastic day! I loved the patrolling the roads, looking for the slightest twitch. Jerry's were a great adversary, never noticed you were men down on us, put up a great fight. Loved the assault at the farm house, dropped my bree baguette! the wave of germans looked great, if i hadn't been hiding it would made a hell of a picture :good: The medic rule, or lack of was definitely the best idea I've seen at any airsoft event ever, worked very well and seeing a sea of jerrys on the floor looked very realistic, many thanks again to all the organisers for all your efforts and thank you to Monty for inspiring us lowly lot :giggle:

You were also a big fan of kicking suspected IED's then legging it at break neck speed leaving me staring at it!

Lucky it was just a glass bottle. That's still one of the funniest moments I've had in airsoft. The entire commando held up or five minutes because someone had stuck a bottle in the road and we were so jumpy we thought it was a bomb. :)

I put that bottle there. It looked pretty old. I thought Craig might snatch it for Bellefleur's bar...

We wondered what the Hell it was at first; from a distance it looked like a mine!

I thoroughly enjoyed my day, well done to my fellow commandos, the opposition were tough and the cost was high but you all stuck at it. (At least until the bunker by which time many of us were completely shagged out) Both sides' kit looked top notch too. It was really nice to meet up with some old friends again and to meet some of the newer players on the scene too. The weekend has left me with a nice warm fuzzy feeling inside. :) Or was that the wodka.

Haha that was pretty brilliant! See things like that set it apart, we didnt know what was part of the game and what wasn't! and whats been said about rifles is spot on, there was the perfect mix between smgs and rifles, really worked well, as we as a plastic commando knife....and kicking over potential mines and using Allenby as a human shield :giggle:

Agreed entirely, it was great to see so many rifles on the field + it really enhances the use of LMGs and their value to a section. Think I only shot three people all day, but as they were rifle kills, they are so much more satisfying! :happydance:

I thought Pete, genuinely believed that me & dcheetham89 were the 'marksmen' in 3 Commando when he asked us to try and sneak into position to try and take out the German LMG position...only to then have that illusion shattered when he admitted he used us to try and draw fire :slap: Damn you Sergeant!

Finally got a chance to sit and tap out a few words so I thought I'd echo the above.
I will admit i had my doubt's as I prepped for the game and drove up, I was worried the low numbers and resulting rewrite of the scenario would lessen the experience. Then when I got stuck in all my doubts melted away as I was treated to exactly the kind of immersive experience I joined the WW2 scene for and that so many speak of.
Thanks to Dadio for letting me have a go on the Bren, a lovely (and lethal) piece of kit. The way the LMGs were treated combined with a good number of rifles and ammo limits made it feel like the battle deciding element they were rather than just a bigger AEG with a huge mag.
Using the rifle, I struggled with the foilage and close quarters for a good part of the day, but towards the end when the commandos started using the field to outflank the defenses around the bunker it suddenly came into it's own as I got to engage the commandos at longer ranges down clearer sight-lines. I frustrated a few outflanking attempts that way, and while scoring kills is satisfying, what was far more rewarding was feeling like I was playing a valuable part in protecting the bunker and deployed LMG!
Surpringly the rifle continued to be pretty useful once inside the bunker, taking accurate potshots through doorways from dark corners.

Thanks to all who played. Kit and sportsmanship was excellent and I am so glad I made it to CIA's last stand.

I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.
