In keeping with all the other groups on here, we need a banner! Anyone got the skills and time to knock one up? If we get more than one entry we can have a vote on the favourite.

Cheers,

Looks good, can we have a couple of changes?

1. Change Skirmish to Airsoft
2. Change the font colour of US WW2 Airsoft Group

Other than that I like - is it the same size as the rest of the banners?

Prefer the 2nd one, but stay clear of the grey font colour, it doesn't stand out well. Use the blue from the first and add US WW2 Airsoft Group and I think we have a winner. Unless you have some images of troopers you can add too?

Not sure on that image of a trooper - just doesn't look right! Any more, could you rip any off the BIA games??

Font colour is good, don't forget US WW2 Airsoft Group.

I like the bottom one of the two. Maybe put a drop shadow on the text to make it pop out a bit.

Agree, the botom one is the best so far.

Good job Steve.

Who said its crashing? Its only got one engine on fire - they'd fly on one with no problems! Besides it's a C-47 Skytrain not a Dakota! :D It got the Dakota name whilst in British service from "DACoTA" for Douglas Aircraft Company Transport Aircraft.

Well, regardless, we're on the parachutes. It's the USAF who have to worry about the plane now. ;)

I'll try and mock up a banner too, just for fun.

This seems to have died a death! Does anyone else have any banner submissions, or are we going with Steve's efforts?

I like that 1, simple. Maybe have the Screaming Eagles and All Americas patch on it somewhere
