Roll on the next one!

Hope you all had plenty of 'best bits' to remember.

Huge thanks to you lot for putting so much effort into your turnout - truly amazing to see, the most staggering turnout of WW2 kitted airsofters - ever. Without doubt the most Thompsons ever seen in on one day (expect an impressive array of MP40's next time )

Special thanks to those who travelled across the country to the wilds of Derbyshire - seems like a thriving community of WW2 players out there, and growing interest too.

Posting photos? You will need to host them elsewhere (your ISP free space or a photo hosting service) and put the links on your post (or you can send a CD to one of the organisers and we will post up. In any case, photos will be posted on the web site gallery, I’ll put a note on the forum when its up.

The Close Action team had a good time, spent most of the day hunting each other down!! I enjoyed taking Bastogne twice and wiping out the US forces at St. Vith in the afternoon game.
Well done folks.
Cheers

Awesome stuff guys!

Okay... a few thankyous must go out now!

Thanks so much to all those who attended and put the effort in to turn up in fantastic looking kit, with authentic weapons and play in the spirit of the game! It really was fantastic!

It was a joy to play alongside the Allies and do the odd bit of commanding... it was a pleasure to shoot and blow up the germans.

Special mention must go out to Chomley for the fantastic signage! That really made the day!

The mortars were great Guy... they looked wonderful and the rules worked just fine.

Steve, you did a great job of running the allies despite having man flu... the lemonade with lemsip at the pub afterwards summed up how rough you must have felt!

Thanks to the marshalls for doing what they enjoy most, throwing pyro around... Rudgie and Bollogs have a reputation for loving that!

Thanks to Major for the help in getting the game set up, the encouragement and great fireworks display... hehe

And finally thanks to Gucci for letting us use his site for this and letting us pretty much take over... When I found him wounded in Bastogne towards the end of the day I said "Ah yes Gucci... not an objective, worth no points, we'll leave him to bleed out"... He loved being a nobody for once. :)

I'm really looking forward to playing at the next WW2 game, wherever that may be!

Well done guys, a great day.
I really appreciated the attention to detail that went into the scenario.
Some very impressive kit on display.
Very fair play throughout the day, and a nice friendly atmousphere.

The only thing I would suggest for next time is to spend less time getting things rolling.
It was 10 past 11 when the game started, and some time after that before any shots were fired. With no more regens after 12, that meant my morning finished after less than an hour's airsofting.
It was the same in the afternoon, we didn't start play 'till about 1.30, and by 3.30 most players were in the safe zone.
That's not a great deal of airsofting (less than 3 hours), but probably just as well with that bloody hill to clamber up.

Fair points Chris... it wasn't really helped by the December days being so short... I arrived on site before the sun had risen and it was 20 minutes waiting there before there was enough daylight for us to start to go into the wood and set things up...

We tried to get things moving as quick as we could... but wanted to give the impression that the yanks were actually not really expecting to have to fight that day...

We'll certainly take this into consideration for the next one!

I'd just like to echo the comments of my fellow organisers.

Apologies if at times I appeared a little aloof, but I was barely able to drag my sorry ass up there let alone play. I polished off 4 Lemsip Max's throughout the course of the day! ;)

Some awesome pics there already, let's get them onto more public forums to promote WW2 airsofters to the Delta/SF/DPM masses!!

Brilliant gameplay, no cheating at all, fantastic fun.

Cheers all!

Ah yes, I forgot the results !

Germans won the am by a whisker , courtesy of the Allies abandoning the fuel dump and it being found by the enemy. The Allies resoundingly won the pm, recovering the plans , & kicking the Germans out of Trois Ponts .
So it was a draw at one game all, or if you want to be precise as to the total numbers of points gained during the day , the Allies won by a largish margin .

Wasn't helped in the pm by the Germans running out of ammo in their forward position when the supply convoys failed to break through and their ammo lost ......and how historically accurate was that then !

And to echo the other organisers comments .
Big thanks to all who came and made the effort, you all looked superb , you all played superb, and I just hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as I did .

Yeah I would like to say I big thanks to every1 who played and organised yesterday! I don't think I have ever experienced such intense rifle action before, especially when The Chef pinged 1 off my Steel from on the ridge! ( Thanks for aiming for where it wouldn't hurt chap! :) )

First time ever I have head shell shock from my head being a matter of inches from an exploding pyro, the little bugger looked so small, but I don't remember much in the following 30 seconds after it went off, thanks to the Marshall there for the quick response! All I can say is where u get knocked on your ass in Call of Duty and its all muffled and ringing,.... this is very accurate! ;)

Very much a well organised event commanders wise, I was never too far away from being able to hear Headshot's constant stream of "Get from Behind those Trees and move up!" shouts, and definately a well organised attack and defense by the Jerries, so well done there! :) Plus the agonising shouts of Jonnietatarrr from the top of the ridge before lunch time was very amusing!

The arty and mortar strikes brought a whole new level of game play in for me, I have not ever airsofted in such conditions, and I would quite happily pay a deposit (even if larger) for the next even so that the conditions and gameplay could be re-created in the future! Very well thought out and pure comedy seeing people scurrying out of their hidy-holes to escape them!

Well done chaps and chapettes, keep those photos rolling! :)

Toodle-pip!

Well guys . what can i say ??

Im pissed that we could'nt make this gig.

Too near crimbo and the distance kills us, i hope you guys and Close Action can get your heads together and come up with some sort of time table for 2007 so as to keep the ww2 events at apart

The photos look good (apart from the gogles ) LOL

Anyone get pics/video of the pyro going up ??

Lets hope 2007 has MORE ww2 game days on the go.

Anyway guys, im glad to see this was a success with the most ww2 airsoft kit in one area, its about time we showed the U.S airsofters we can match what the do, if not better.

Keep up the grand work

:)

Tired ?? come and i will put you too sleep BANG BANG
