no need to worry, plus no-one's going to see you in these tunnels, even you fellow players.

NB: Bosh, Oakleaf would show up like a sore thumb in the tunnels!


Surely you just contradicted yourself there HS :?: :wink:

Also I disagree if it was "Fall side" out.


Hmm, true. Mind you, once you've brushed up against the pure chalk walls a few times you'll been bright white!

Peppered

I used to have exactly the same issues with SS but then I relented and at the end of the day its another uniform - and yes they did some bad things but all armies commit atrocities. It doesn't stop me wearing soviet kit.

If you already have field grey then just wear that, if you want to badge up the same then all im doing is stitching a pair off ss collar dogs over my heer litzen and taking the breast eagle off.

You could probably get away with having two plain black collar dogs,just get some appropriate sized bits of black felt.

*but* you really dont have to.

Its just a few of us getting carried away with the idea of being some SS snatch squad... i think i've watched the start of 'bullet proof monk' too many times :)

Re: Oakleaf camo - no good as it won't be Autumn :wink:

Gadge - I appreciate what you are saying which is why I will badge up so we look at least similar. I thought most people would turn up in cam smocks so thats why I ordered one. :slap:

I totally agree with the Feldgrau hence my initial position of hapless Heer guard.

I really am clueless about German insignia so I really do need a noddy guide.

I think the Hellboy link is great so if it can be done I am in. I will watch it tonight just to check you get it right! (had Hellboy 2 since xmas but not allowed to watch it without the wife - we don't get a lot of time to watch films these days :cry: )

Peppered- I'm happy to be a Heer guard with you (I've always been uncomfortable with wearing SS runes).

I also think a military installation like this would have had some kind of regular army garrison/guard unit in any case. If we co-ordinate outfits between us I think it could add to the whole theme :good: .

Nice idea.

Bring some props like a sentry box and AA emplacement and I'll put you on stag for the night! ;)

:rofl: Not sure if that will fit in the Skoda :D

Alternatively we can stand around talking about our sweethearts in Dresden before being knife-killed by steely eyed commandos.

Yeah, but take it easy because my actual real-life sweetheart is from Dresden and I wouldn't want to start getting the wrong idea!

Well Heer today...gone tomorrow. B&H, I think I am going to badge up as SS with the other but no cam as:

1. The sentry boxes that are to be manufactured have hit an organisational glitch but if it works in the game and the organisers agree, I can make two though someone else may have to paint them?

2. Unless the game plan needs a Heer group, it is probably not worth it.

I have resigned myself to not worrying about SS as:

1. Not all of them were evil surely
2. I am shit so I will in fact be taking the piss out of SS which is commendable in my book
3. If the royal family can dress up as Nazis, it must be OK to be SS


So, on to insignia. I have green shoulder boards, chest eagle and collar tabs. Is the SS lot putting a black chest eagle, ss collar tabs and is there going to be a cuff title. What shoulder boards should get and any advice where from?

Feld grey and ankle boots for me.
My tunic has a green collar and is badged as GD, Is that going to be a problem, green collar & cuff title on right sleeve?
