Cheers to the 34th lads for another cracker :good:

Also marked a milestone of my 30th WW2 event :D

As always great to see everyone again and well done to the Brits and our excellent squad leader Martin for handling everything fate threw at him with an unflappable stiff upper lip :good:

Congratulations on your 30th Tim, and just to echo the thanks to the 34th guys for putting on another great day. I do like the January games to blow the cobwebs away after Christmas, and it was cold and dry today, perfect Airsoft weather.

Great to catch up with friends again and to meet some new ones, and as always the mission/section based gameplay worked very well. I particularly like the encounters where both sides break off or try to bypass rather than indulge in pointless firefights.

Many thanks to the British for cheerily going along with whatever lunacy we were instructed to do, particularly the heroic charges at the end and the inevitable 'tea making' mission. It was also great fun playing with Tims mortar, although it has left me a bit deaf.

I've got a few pictures I'll put up at some point, but not tonight.

Cheers
Martin

My guys from close action had a cracking day. Well organised and fair play from everyone. Loved chasing the allies around...
Pity i strained my quad on my right leg when i fell over at full sprint at the end. Oh well at least it was the end.
see you all again

Awesome day as usual, guys. Just awesome. Only downside is there is never enough time to have a good chat with everyone. Also there is a nasty rumour going around that I blew myself up laying booby traps in the first game..... :slap: :rofl:

Yeah another interesting, challenging, and all round good fun day again by the 34th.

Highlight of the day:
Final encounter at the POW camp topped the day off very well.

Downer of the day:
First time I had carted the radio around in game, and towards the end it was starting to become a bit of a nuisance with the weight and the aerial snagging every bit of brush that it could.

Absolutely knackered when I got home, but radox is my friend! :good:

Roll on the weekender later in the year be very interested to see how the mission are developed for having a full weekend play.

Another great day at Fireball, many thanks to the 34th guys for putting on another well put together event!

Great being the token Bersaglieri too, do love wearing that kit, so thanks :good:

Got a little outgunned in the woods with my rifle in the morn but once i swapped to the smg in the afternoon it was all out running fun, the final siege was brilliant and a little nerving seeing tides of brits coming towards us and then the yanks emerging from the trees, excellent (Y)

Great to see everyone again and hopefully I can get time off for august to say Bonjourno!

Many thanks to Chris, Martin and the rest of the 34th for another great day, everything worked well, highlight ?, probably getting riddled with fire on the last valiant British bulldog charge against the German stronghold, and dying like a move star :whistle: ! Also thanks to our CO Martin "Do you think that's wise, sir?" for his stiff upper lip, and to the rest of the Brit squad.
Cheers

Had a great time again, so many thanks to all the organisers and COs for making the day run and play out so well! :good:

Cheers to everyone in the Brit squad for pulling together and keeping upbeat and eager no matter the situation! I must say I loved the end charge. I'm not sure when or where I would have been hit in all the chaos but made sure to give an appropriately epic death to finish things off.

Another good day out which is not a surprise but nice to see some new faces there to join in the fun.
As usual enjoyed the 'Fog of War' that the mission system encourages and for the first time i think we avoided a full Friendly fire battle! (i think)...
Germans played very well and i agree with Chris i swore they'd brought a couple of extra Zugs hidden in their pockets, They pincer'd us good on a few occasions.
Big Ki's radio was awesome! I didn't know it was 'live' and i was momentarily convinced a Brass Band was coming through the trees towards me...
Two good moments that will stick with me...
1) The perfect two pronged attack on the Zug occupying the trenches at our C.P, us on the left flank and the Brits on the right. It was a perfect two pronged attack! 'cough' shame it also happened to be a complete accident of nature...
2) The final all out offensive on the German HQ. Heroic charges, cunningly laid tripwires that took out 5 in one go (yeah that's you Matt), the usual comedy use of Mortars and grenades that are the Hallmark of the 34th ( i saw one thrown grenade land one metre behind it's thrower, you know who you are people!).I remember watching the Brits and Krauts throwing grenades thinking 'how come we can't do that? The all out charge reminded me of the Germans one at Close Action, glorious to take part in with pretty much the same outcome!
All in all another good day on the front line, cheers to everyone for making it a good day!

don't forget the one that went forward about a meter and picked up and thrown again and finished about 2 m in front lol (only a smoke this time)

but the trip mine that went off on the last attack that took 5 of us was a classic , I just saw it and thought why is there a grenade fizzing by us , then boom ( I did not set it off) , to be fair to the gerries there best defence would be to buy us all grenades

What a cracking day chaps! Too many highs to mention everything in one post. A brilliant day and loved the mission system. A big thanks to the British squad and especially our CO as he was superb. By far the best CO I have had the pleasure of serving under. I also learned some valuable lessons.... such as shoot the enemy as soon as you can in an ambush situation or become ambushed yourself..... and don't fall over on your gun!?

Thanks to all as well for looking after my newbie mate Alex. It was his first ever game and he used the word "immersive" to describe the day.

Biggest thanks to the organisers. Tally Ho!

Another great day! Good to see so many turning up and getting into the spirit of the event. So many good moments, not forgetting that awesome mortar, if only the wind hadn't kept blowing them onto our other squad!

:lol: yes it was completely by accident. We were on a 'thinning the numbers' mission and had been chasing a German zug all the way from their HQ trying to set ambushes (we managed to get ambushed ourselves on the way) and finally stumbled across them engaged in a firefight around the Farmhouse with US troops and executed a perfect flanking attack.

I believe the power of the British whistle may have assisted on the right flank!
