Very good day, thanks to Josh for running it, although having that money stolen must've been a kick in the teeth.
I had good fun in Gruppe 2, being very sneaky and flanking the Americans a LOT of times.. Lead to 4 surrender kills (well done for taking those guys)
Brilliant weekend, one of the best airsofting events I've been to!
Anyone know where the photos will be put up?

Really enjoyed the weekend. Fighting from building to building was fun and keeping to the same squad was great.

Great to meet faces old and new (Liz, and crazy Belgians). Ian and Johnny - you two really crack me up - it's like TOWIE and Geordie Shore rolled into one - especially when Ian does his Geordie accent. :giggle:

Congrats on another great Gunman game! Great to see some now familiar faces. Excellent hospitality from all at Dog Co (help ya self to nobe framage)! Spoilt myself for first half of of sat due to a sodding hangover (care of dog co) but felt it added some reality to the scene as several pointed out I had the "thousand yard stare"! Lots of gains and losses around the buildings with lots of casualties winkling the hun out! Eventually taking the guns out and lots of sneaky flanking going on! Loved finishing Josh off with a knife kill. The game today was awesome, with jerry choking our convoy at every step! I was officially the 1st Yank downed and was most perturbed when crawling for cover to find a stick grenade land 6" away! Dead! Getting behind the Dagenham Nazis and gruppe was most fun(dead are ya!)! All nicely slotted and single handedly clearing the crossroads! Then was shot by an equally devious jerry! All in all (barring the hangover) a top, top weekender! :happyclap:

I had prior commitments on the Sunday so could only play Saturday, but had a really good day. Hard work attempting to stop the allies advancing along the main road, lots of close action in the thick undergrowth where an enemy could pop up barely feet in front of you! Made the action very tense and exciting! Highlight for me was sneaking round the back of the allied line with my squad (drei section) and taking the re-gen location! Again, very tense moving through the thick undergrowth!

First Gunman game and it won't be my last, big thanks to the organisers and GASS for the site.

Got in an hour ago; already had a long shower to get me feeling back in the real world again.
A great game indeed, and at a fantastic site too! Cheers once again to goth GMA and GASS.
Seems like my camera memory went a little "tits-up" and I've lost about a quarter of the photos I'd taken (mainly Sunday morning photos), oh well...
I'm glad I got my Thompson fixed in time, and loved the nice range of weapons (and vehicles!) on the field this weekend - cheers to all who put in the extra time and expense to make those happen too.

Been back in for a couple of hours and have just had a good soak and some grub! My first Josh / Gunman event and all I can say was it was amazing. Will deffinitly be booking up for the 3 big games you will be running next year! GASS have also got a really nice site, glad to played there.

Memorable moments,

the first attack on the first day on the buildings about 100M away from allied HQ seemed to take ages to clear, and even when we did within 30 minutes of US / Brit pushing forward the Jerrys had snuck back in and retaken them! Taking the cross roads and holding back the Germans with the help of one of the 30 Cals on the jeep was great. And when we had been hit and had to walk back to the original allied HQ to respawn we had another Jeep there to bring us back to the fight quicker! (and to save our legs!) Going out on combat patrols of 4 and stumbling on a whole Zug (10-12) germans wasn't pleasant. This happened once on the Saturday and once on the Sunday! Getting blown up by one of the AT guns was also intresting! Being in the truck in the convoy was also great. Everyone was so quiet and was thinking about what was about to happen. And thats just a glimpse of some of the great moments across the weekend.

It was nice to meet in person and fight with
Aitch, James, Doug and the rest of the Dog company lads properly. Really good laugh on both the Friday and Saturday social.

Had a great time, many thanks to Josh and the other organisers :good: Never played in such a large game before, a very interesting experiance. Nice to see some old faces from Minsk again, The Dagenham Germans, Stoff, Komrade & Alec as well as the regulars.

Good to raise so much money for the Army Benelovant Fund. Pity about the tea leaf but was impressed with the community spirit for Josh's whip round.

It was a real hard fought battle with plenty of ebb and flow, enjoyed being part of Zug zwei and thought we aquitted ourselves well.

Marsha turned out to be quite the artillery expert :)

Bring on Fist of Dust :happydance:

Absolutley knackered now!

A great weekend, very enjoyable and nice to catch up with people. Good atmosphere, excellent standard of play (and the weather was kind for mid November) and not spoilt by the thievery.

High points for me were (finally, after hours of trying) taking Red Bunker in the flank with my airborne chums and wiping out the defenders, along with various engineering jobs. I managed to actually use my bayonet/pick helve mine hunting tool in a game, and only blew myself up twice (still a bit deaf from blowing up the ammo this morning).

I even managed to stab a German with my rubber bayonet (ooer missus), shame he was a prisoner :oops:

I'll get some pics up when I've sorted them out.

Cheers

Well after god knows how many years doing WWII airsoft I finally managed to get to my first Gunman event after several aborted attempts.

I can speak for the Doughboys and say we all had a wonderful time.

I'm now working out if it's going to be possible to get to fist of dust...

memorable moments for me must include getting mowed down by machine gun fire in the first 30 seconds of the start of the game, my failure to throw grenades anywhere near their intended target, getting seperated from our unit and then spending an hour trying to get back to them and spending half an hour crawling through a hedge only to get blown up by a grenade and have to go back

Had an excellent time, battery problems and torn BD and hands aside. Thanks to Josh and all the marshals - it was my first Gunman event and won't be my last.

Great turnout in numbers and kit wise.

Highlights were leading Clash to her death on several occasions, although led is slightly inaccurate, directed is probably a better word - ladies first after all; getting shot virtually point blank in the forehead between helmet and glasses; finally rejoining Able company after making our way through enemy lines; the temporary attachment to the young commando unit (ah so that's how you do it - very impressive fire and manoeuvre skills) and meeting up with Doug again - hope the jeep's OK.

Most embarrassing moment had to be volunteering to lay smoke down for what was to be a mass British attack across the open field to take the yellow area on Sunday. After assuirng myself that all commandos and airborne were ready and in position I ran to the front, lit the smoke and managed a throw of monumentally girlie proportions, I will blame the small pack on my back and the webbing but if I think back to playing war in the school playground in the 70s there are a couple of decidedly non-pc forms of abuse around then that would be entirely appropriate for that throw. A throw that landed the first of what was supposed to be two smoke bombs approximately one foot away in the bush behind which I was hiding scoring what I took to be an instant grenade kill on myself and poor old Clash (again).

I have a small skewer hidden in the collar of my jumping jacket, and a razorblade in my gaiter, as well as my knife.

Many thanks to Josh and his crew for yet another great weekend and the Gass team for the site. I had a great time both on and off the field, Aitch's one man charge at me last thing Saturday just had me in fits, I couldn't believe that as the game finished on Saturday the little ad-hoc Zug of about 6-7, Josh sent me out to lead, was surrounded by so many Americans and Brits, it was like the Alamo.
Thanks to all the poor fella's that got lumbered with me as leader of Zug Ein (1) hope I wasn't to much of a doughnut, it was my first time in charge :D. You all played a great game and along with Zug 2 on Sunday put up an outstanding defence holding up the American advance along the road, we made our plan and you guy's made it work.
Again thanks to all, new faces and old.
Aitch the food was spot on mate.
Boshman thanks for the rides in the side car mate, put a grin on my face for days
Ad a good time did ya? Yer it looks like C ya. :D

Hmm, yes I can see how it might appear that way but I assure you it was all down to complete incompetence rather than any form of duplicity.
