Have to agree with Steve be amazing if we all looked like a unit, i think the odd bit of heer insignia would go unnoticed in the mass of SS but fledgrau might look a bit odd on its own.

Still have that spare tunic if its needed....

Well I hate being the odd one out - and I do have insignia for an SS Mann so I could re-badge, however my M43 jacket is a 6 button one rather than the 5 button WSS. What to do?

Bugger, BedsnHerts, you were our last hope (queue Darth Vader breathing...)

Heer today, goon tomorrow...

Right then, thats it, I need to get SS insignia, Gadge, will get those shoulder boards off you at the next PBI day (checking I can make the training day now).

I have a black eagle so which arm and roughly where does it go. Just need collar dogs - anyone selling or advise where to get them?

Feck,
I do not plan to be the odd one out heer :roll: Have to see if the long haired general will permit me to purchase another tunic (I don't want to take the badges off my GD impression)
Think I have an arm eagle, what collar and cuff insignia do I need?

Collar

SS runes on the right, plain back on the left. As for cufftitle, I think they can be mixed as the idea is its a got together group.

Evo and i looked into getting some custom ones made but they worked out at about £7 posted each if we got over 10 and it just didnt seem worth the hassle.

we thought it'd be a laugh, but I didn't think there'd be much player takeup if we offered them, just for one game.

Also, it's not our game, so I didn't want to put my personal oar into it, as it's taking the extra step from 'film-sim' to 'totally imaginary sim'. :wink:

If there is enough interest, then i can get come made up though.

Well I'm up for it so that makes 3! :lol: I think its a nice idea as we'd all be part of the same unit and it fits with idea of the scenario. I don't think it is too much of a fantasy unit given the scenario is a work of science fiction. As you say though its more down to enough people being up for doing it which decides it.

Heh, this was supposed to be a game of hand picked crack troops, a what-if game based on fact not a comic book game but meh, let's have zombies as well?
