Finally, a few pics.








It was very depressing watching the GJ moving all our sweated over sandbags to make their own breastwork on top of our mountain!

Firstly would like to express my thanks and gratitude to the AGS team for putting on yet another great game.
I loved every minute of it, my most memorable moments, when all he FJ moving up on to the first plateaux/field, I looked round and all he guys carrying mines, ammo boxes, extra weapons and the drop canister just gave me a surreal feeling as it looked just like one of the real photo's from the battle. Then on a bit of a fun side and in seconds of moving round a corner, getting a bang kill, my respect o the gentlemen in question, then managing to shot ww2stu in the back without him even knowing I was their made me smile . I could go on and on, as I said , just enjoyed the whole thing.
Also my thanks to my team mates and leader in Zug Berta. Had a great day with you guys.
The level of kit for both sides was great and the game play was spot on.
Thanks again to all.
Forgot to add, all the pics and video look fantastic well done to the guys taking them.

Splendid! That about sums it up for me.
Some pictures. It wouldn't let me load the originals up as they were too big. The ones I've played with are small enough so they are funny B and W dodgy things. Fun though.
The Feldwebel sorts us out. Expecting snow up there Jimbo?

An excellent event!

In particular the morning was great... right from the initial march down from the safe zone (B-Section showed how it should be done...), foot drill, air raid, march up the hill and digging in... setting up lines of fire, and then repelling the Gebirgsjager over and over again with accurate Mortar and Bren gun fire. We were only pushed back when the bren ran out of ammo.

Thanks to the rest of B-section for putting up with me as their NCO!

Thanks to Boshman for being the perfect British Army Major. I really do hope you can be pulled out your usual field grey to reprise the role again sometime!

Thanks to all AGS for putting on a great event...

and finally...

The World Record for "Most knees at an airsoft event" has almost certainly been beaten!

The one downer was that Wladek, Barrie and Anne couldn't make it! :(

Well now that was a lot of fun, thank you AGS and to all who attended, in particular my immediate chain of command Corporal Yith and Boshman and of course the rest of B Section.

I have to say that I thought the standard of kit was fantastic from all, perhaps to be expected from old hands but also brilliant from new hands too. Jolly good show. Even more so as this was the first game for Brits in shorts. Roll on the next one, I wasn't anywhere near as cold as I feared I would be. Not sure I will get the quarry stains out of the seat of my shorts but that serves me right for getting killed so often. Game play was great I thought, the only problem I had at one point was recognising that some of the Hun were dead as they were still standing up, apologies for the overkill, I would probably have been more sympathetic at the time if I hadn't already spent 5 minutes lying in a pool of water forlornly waiting for a stretcher bearer!

As always great ideas (Air raid was fantastic) and great props - a UXB?! Brilliant wish I'd seen it and wish I'd been RE and could have added that to the list of things that have blown me up but I did have a lot of fun as the linesman for B Section and we put up a good fight for the mountain against GJ in the morning. Even after we had seen that the positions across the valley had fallen.

I don't know what happened on the other side of the lake but were the drop cansisters anywhere near the Brits? Were there any encounters before the FJ had retrieved their main weapons?

The mad rush at the end in the pouring rain was fun, I like to think I would have, indeed did make it - pushed on by the blast from Lardy's grenade - but I then foolishly decided to stop and turn around to see if I could help others get through.

Marvellous day, thanks again.

And so I was but that was Northern Italy and while there was a good Mediterranean pot pourri of kit few were in all KD and I think only Martin (Beds & Herts) wore shorts. I wore KD battledress trousers as I do for most Italy games as I love the mix of kit. So I stand by this being the first proper shorts game! :D

Like the other posters I had the most fun in shorts ever.
Thanks to the UCAP site and in particular to AGS for providing an excellent event.
It was great to see old friends and new players who were impressively keen and with great kit.

My day started with taking the German players out for what I am sure was a pretty long advance to contact once they were dropped off on the far side of the site.
We then inserted the platoon around the naval gun emplacement finding it already hit by a Stuka strike. They established field phone comms with HQ, defused the UXB and dug in to the position. We started to see enemy movement and a patrol is sent out. The paratroopers are close enough that we can't deploy by vehicle. As a good driver I do not want to lose my vehicle to the enemy so I agree with the Captain to move the truck to the re org point on the track. When I got there and I got on to the edge of the track I could see the paratroops were moving up the defile. I engaged them until I ran out of ammunition. They moved up effectively and over ran the gun position. As we had lost the field phone I returned to HQ to report. The Major and I then went out to meet the rest of troops at the end of the causeway and found them ready to organise a counter attack. This went in and held off the paratroops. I drove with the Major to the base of the hill to find the section had finally been pushed out of the OP as they had run out of ammunition for the Bren. I saw Dean making the wise decision to surrender rather than jump down the cliff.
The Major required a meaningless sacrifice at this stage of the war so ordered the section back up the hill to recover the field phone and drive the Mountain troops off the ridge. The attack went in bravely but futilely not helped by me failing to fire the mortar correctly. After a break for Lunch we moved the section into a new position along the Maleme road to hold the Germans from the Airfield buildings.
Meanwhile the Paratroops had pushed along the causeway and while we viewed the defence we were attacked from the flank by the Mountain Troops who had successfully skirted the other section and achieved a link up of the German forces. We collected the other section and returned to the HQ by truck to much complaining of the roughness of the Cretan roads. A desperate defence of the airfield now began with multiple attacks from many directions with a series of counter attacks to try to keep our freedom of action. Finally we were being overun and orders from HQ were for every man for himself to make for the coast and pick up by Royal Navy Destroyers. While the weather may have helped us a little lack of ammunition and overwhelming numbers of the enemy ment few of us fought through to escape.

How did the mortar work, game-wise?

If it's like ours, it fires TLSFx mortar rounds. They are two stage pyros. The first stage fires the round up to about 50m. The second stage is either a bang or smoke. Anyone within 5m of that detonation is 'dead'.

The British 2" was fired using 9mm blanks and normal smoke grenades.

iirc the German 50mm was the older style using thermobaric grenades to provide the shooty umph bit.

Thanks so much to the UCAP site and AGS organisers who presented me with by far the best event I have experienced so far!

Every moment was thrilling, all the way from the marching up the steep green slopes, through the chalky desert looking area to the compound, otherwise referred to as grenade central. Though the attack on the mountain stalled our advance (and a very admirable, dogged defense on the part of the Brits) we more than compensated when the brave troops of the Gebirgsjäger began a Blitzkrieg down the slope. The ensuing turkey shoot was most entertaining Brilliant efforts put into the death scenes by Tommy, I take my hat (or rather helmet) off to you! Things like that made it all the more immersive. I must say it felt like a Stalingrad scenario when we reached the buildings; concrete everywhere, stray bullets from unseen angles, close quarter struggles and explosions at every turn. Was exhilarating to say the least!

A big thanks also to my comrades, all of you were awesome and great company. Good stuff to the other members of the MG team, it was quite a hefty thing was it not? Great sight indeed to see all those rounds fly at the enemy, whose mortars were so uncannily accurate

Look forward to seeing friends old and new in future events. :D
