I would like to thank every single player for really getting into the day, and we are both very pleased that people enjoyed this experience. We did not have any complaints about the sportsmanship throughout the day, and that always feels good for us. :D

There were some things we loved, most in fact, and inevitably some things which will need tweaking with so many new ideas coming into play. I will post up some form of synopsis in a while, but now a late runch calls, with the distinct possibility of bacon.

Cheers all.

darn gutted i missed this one, sounds great, to be honest the rifle only scenario was why i want to get into WW2 airsoft, i love the the full blown bb's flying everywhere, which is what i normally do most weekends in modern kit at the more "general" sites, but my hunger for "realistic" games remains unfulfilled........but this sounds like the dogs !!!!!(fill in the blank). lets hope this is the path ww2 airsoft takes as those who have attended have already stated.

it would make my life easier this coming saturday at the grange airsfair, as i still havent decide between a rifle or a AEG submachine gun...............suppose ill have to get both...simples

hurry up with the pics, cant wait to see them :D

sorry Martin for the freindly fire but it wouldnt be a proper game if I didnt shoot someone on my side

serves me right for wearing a tan hued LFD jacket. I took a pot shot at our trusty Adjudent while he was running around in the woods in his splinter top and a forest on his head, looked just like a para.

Missed from 20 feet, not one of my best shots!

Cheers

Is that your airsoft fitness regime, Craig?

Speaking of which I thought the medic rules worked brilliantly.

Yes, I was going to comment on that. Even if we never do another 'rifles only' game again, the medic rules worked really well and could easily be used elsewhere.

I've played the odd 'one hit and you are out' game at Open Days, and even in that environment it completely changes the style of game play.

Cheers

Thanks to Craig and Dean and all those who attended, for a great day out. I was so glad that the weather held for us too - rifles are a lot more fun when there's little to no wind and, gas rifles are less temperamental when the sun is shining! It was good to see so many 350fps weapons being used and, on several occassions, I was glad that I got my Tanaka down to that level, when Poles popped up only a few feet away. I racked up a very healthy amount of kills too, proving that super high power isn't always needed, particularly on a site like Grange Farm.

The day was well paced and, I very much liked the medic rules in use too, so, well done for doing something new with that too. I'm sold on the concept of rifles to the fore now and, will look forward to any other games that embrace this idea.



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

I have now posted a brief report on my blog ( http://megablitzandmore.blogspot.co.uk/ ... rhine.html) which features some of the photos seen on this thread. As the blog gets around 300 hits per day, it's quite a good way of bringing WW2 Airsoft to a wider audience.

Thanks again for the photos!

Nice vid marsha. Though it doesn't tell the whole tale, Porta, throughout the day there were some pretty intense firefights with rapid advances & retreats.
