Had an Utterly outstanding weekend!

The banter on Saturday evening was great, I think I was rambling on to JOsh about something whilst being drunk!

Anywho, it was an interesting element in the game, allowing the "Free Polish" to roam around to begin with, every american bottom twitching to see whether a pistol or a grenade could come out at any moment!

Once the Siren went off, all hell broke lose, and there was a good few hours of fighting to be had.

Personally I got really engrossed in the storyline, staying up with the help of Headshot and Kirstin digging and Uberly Big MG nest in the time it takes to cook lasagne! Then sitting in it for most of the morning, shooting the crap with Rhys and Mac for a while!

I thought the game was set out really well, and jolly good show to the Germans for Capturing Churchill and Exfilling with him, shame your command have all been executed back at home! ah well ;) :ghey:

Kudos to Yith, Gadge and Major, for showing there is no substitute for the correct amount of applied weaponary, I think they could have kitted out half of the home guard with the gear they had in the back of the jeep!

Roll on the next 1! :D

yep what can i say it was amazing.

when us poles walked through the American camp you see most of you wanting something to happen lol. the fire fights were great fun and very tactical on both sides. when everything looked bleak and no sign of Churchill i think neil spotted him in the distance behind spawn and five of gave chase disabling the jeep and killing the guards (excellent shoot out gadge, yith & major) then to be shot by Churchill inches from my balls lol.

all in all 5/5 guys. cheers from everyone at cia & gunman airsoft.

Hi all,

Shame we lost Churchill again but we did manage to rescue him fairly quickly when we assualted the village with some Limey officer leading us on :)

Looking forward to another event in the future.

Well, needless to say, the game when nothing like we planned it to go, well, mostly.....

However, we tried to keep things going in the right direction and keep you guys occupied and I hope you enjoyed it.

We tried our best to run the game in a different way, starting slowly and building up rather than starting with an-all out knackering firefight and having everyone shattered by lunch.

Kind of a training morning game day!

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts as to whether it worked.

Hmm thats kinda.... : sick : I have never heard of Poles drinking that but then again there are some things I have never heard of before... :shock: :lol:

On a more on topic note, I am interested in a few pics of the game. How did the poles look?

Click

Erm like Fj with denisons and grey berets wore polish style :)

Was a cool effect though.

absolutly shagged but had a fantastic time

Loved the whole day from start to finish. massive hats off to all the americans you guys really excelled yoursleves. truely great playing with you today. and fair play to you germans despite getting pushed back alot you guys kept mounting good counter attacks and got churchill.

twas a bloody amazing game. nice site. great setup. having the "polish" wandering around made us well twitchy. I even shot steiner when he tried to sneak off. really enjoyed the camp life bit and the slower build up. and the building to building fighting was awesome.

Well guys, thanks for a great weekend. It may not have gone entirely according to plan (but what game does? :lol: ) Good to see the Yanks hard-charging today - you guys really worked well as a team. To the Germans, bloody good to see people getting stuck in. Even when forced on the defensive, people got motivated and counter-attacked.

My high points? (apart from getting hammered on the saturday night) had to be when 4 other FJ and I got Churchill in the village. Kudos to you gents!

My low points? Didn't bring the bloody '42 :roll: , and knowing that i'm going to have to spend an hour this evening pulling bits of gorse out of my kneecaps :lol:

Oh, and the last thing. Is it just me, or does Forester look fookin' scary in his Feldgendarmerie kit?

I've put some personal comments directed at the US troops on their private section of the forum - all positive comments, so please wander by there and take a look.

But more generally I was deeply impressed how well you guys threw yourselves into the role. In a game that was designed to be 'different' it would have gone tits-up had you not played along with the scenario - so many thanks for that.

Great to see some players not only new to WW2 games but also new to airsoft - this was baptism of fire, no mistake!

Excellent sportsmanship, no tantrums or moaning which was great. A physically less demanding morning seemed to pay off - chaps were keen to get going after lunch and sustained effort throughout the afternoon. There wasn't too much resting and chatting in the regens, always a good sigh that people are still up for a fight - and fight you did right to the end.

And some thanks - cheers to Josh for the loan of the Gunman site and facilities (I wish I had opted for sleeping in the barn :roll: my tent was a little draughty).
Special thanks to Major, Yith and Gadge for taking their roles to heart and playing a blinder throughout the day.
Biggest thanks to you, the players (from far and wide), for making the event something special. There are plenty of WW2 events this year of different styles, scenarios and locations - turning up and playing is the only way to keep this WW2 thing rolling...

There are more to come, but I took 207 so give me a while to sort through them.
Forgot to say, if anyone wants one of the original images, just email me and I'll bung it over to you.

Had an absolutely great day, great sportsmanship on both sides.
I have to mention in dispatches, Neil Blume....
In the afternoon as us Yanks moved up past our regen towards the village, about 10 of us walked merrily by Neil who was tucked up tight as a nit in a gorse bush. Contact came from the front, and with us all distracted he starts picking us off one by one :slap: He was finally pinged as he ran up to the jeep to try and capture Winnie and the only surviving member of our 'stick' slotted him.
Oak Leave cluster at least :D

Well, since you asked so nicely...

There are quite a few from the night before, but give me time to sort them out. Here are a few from the day.

And if you're very lucky kiddies, I'll post some more up later ;)

(Herr Chommers - any chance I can get some gallery space to upload all of these to?)
