It never comes off completely in my experience. With chalk even if it doesn't all come off it will just look mucky.

why not just cover it in fabric or put clingfilm over the helmet, spray it with Warhammer base spray paint then paint it the colour you want? then after the game you can have fun peeling it off, like then you have PVA glue on your hands? hehe :giggle:

Hi, re the helmet covering, I agree with Carly - it would be entirely likely that one German sldier would wrap some sandbag around his helmet ( :slap: )


Anyway, open the bookings, I've gone and plundered my credit card again, see what the kit is like when it turns up :?

hehe

Considering not opening the booking 'til the new year, going to let people get Christmas out of the way with, before people have to think about parting with money.

Yep. We'll be doing a run of German helmets soon (thanks for the plug Yith! :good: ). I've checked my work diary for next year and I'm free on the weekend for this game! :happyclap: For once, I don't need to buy any kit as well (probably will though!).

Hehe, nice one Pete, see if your bro wants to get involved too! :)

Your '28 looking Thompson will fit the part too :)

He's got plenty of time to get some kit together, so, he'll be there too. Weapon wise, I quite fancy a Garand actually! I'm a bit bored with full auto, so, I'll probably let my Bro use the Thompson.

Well, yes actually, after the Alsos game I am really looking forward to the next few games :happydance: . Heer in 'the loop' and I know nothing about DAK other than they and the 8th Army played fair and hard and had a lot of respect for each other. That, the site not being too far to travel to and the Tanaka K98 I got means DAK'll do for me!

I'll be looking for some jolly British games to even the count up next though (can't get to the UKAP game :( ) so anything else for Brit glider troops in the pipeline :whistle: ?

I'm sure the aformentioned British 8th army migh be making an appearance soon to share in some of that mutual respect ;)

Monty's 8th, cool - I am sure you are all looking forward to the British Long Range Desert Patrol shorts we will need to wear...


I think the amount of 'flare' in them might allow some interesting injuries :oops:
