Please post up any questions regarding the event here. :good:

“I wanted to come to the Volga at a specific location at a specific city. By chance it carries the name of Stalin himself. So don’t think I marched there for this reason – it could carry another name – but because there is a very important goal... this goal I wanted to take – and you know – we are very modest, we have it already."
Adolf Hitler, November 1942

"Comrades, Red Army men, commanders and political workers, men and women guerrillas! It is on your perseverance, staunchness, fighting skill and readiness to discharge your duty to the country that the defeat of the German-fascist army and the liberation of the Soviet land from the Hitlerite invaders depend! We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."
Joseph Stalin, November 1942

You mean Factory Workers Militia? :wink:

Not a problem although we should have lots or Russian uniforms, field gear and helmets available for loan :good:

Personal reasons. I'm a Pole, I will not put on a Nazi or a Soviet uniform. A regular guy caught up in the war is someone I can identify with however.
I'll see if I can get my Kar98k to shoot at 350fps or below.

Should be fairly easy to get something similar in a charity shop or at a flea market

Militia is fine, but you would of course be under the command of the Russians, and not a "free agent".

It's dug out of the chalk cliffs, how "gunky" it gets depends on how much rain there has been as it filters through the rock. I don't think it's any muckier than the UCAP Sandpit site TBH.

I must confess I was originally a bit dubious as I am not the worlds greatest fan of CQB however the site looks more like the Drakelowe, so I am up for this one. Looks like my Russian kit is going to earn its keep this year :) Do you sleep in the tunnels or are there buildings or something? (if not pitching a tent).

Given that this is in November, would I be right in thinking that Josh isn't going to be a doing a November game? I can do one November game but not two. Given that it is early in November, I'm also guessing nothing is happening in October either. Some clues from organisers would be handy for diary planning :good:

Clues? Josh slated a date for end of Nov/beginning December - but this was floated November last year and as yet no plans have been forthcoming to other organisers...

Anyway, UCAP tunnels is an awesome site, very atmospheric and the walls are soaked with history and not to be missed. I'd say the open day games could be classed as CQB but AGS are playing the site with ammo restraint and objective-led and tension-filled game play (as have all WW2 games run so far at this site). So a confined space and not an open woodland for sure but not CQB as you would know it! Even sleeping in the tunnels is an experience - no tents!

This is a great site, just down the road from me and on my birthday too, couldnt ask for more, sadly it looks like I'll miss it as my other half has already arranged a trip for that day, and I just cant see how I can square this particular circle. Must the be first and only time I'll wish I was down a Russian sewer rather than out drinking.
