had a great weekend, one of the best i've been too infact.
Love the site , it suits all type of play.
I thought the team play was MUCH better than a few games ive been too.
Shame the match was crap but hey the piss up on the night was good so i can forgive the match.
What i really want to know is .... did anyone else get bitten to hell by insects or was it just me?
i covered myself , more than once in repellent and they bit me around my eyes!
The one place i couldnt have put repellent and they found it!
Has anyone posted the team photo's yet????

Special thanks to the organisers , great job.

Yeah, I had a great day as well. Many thanks to all who attended. It's you guys who make this hobby so good.

As for insects. I saw plenty, but somehow managed to avoid get bitten at all!

I'm so glad you all enjoyed the event!

What I liked most, as a Jerry, was having the two MG's. I certainly felt our tactics started revolving around their fire power as they should, with the rifles giving harassing and supporting fire. In short the tactics seemed right. Very pleasing.
I also liked the German defence of the hilltop position. We slowly fell back in good (ish) order into the position and when the American attack ran out of steam pushed forward again. Again, it felt like we were doing things right.

I'll just make one constructive comment.

There was no need to formally split the day into separate battles. You could have segued quite nicely from one battle to the other by getting us to recce or patrol to the next jump off/defence point, whilst staying in contact with your other organisers. That way the suspension of disbelief wouldn't have just dropped off when we had to stop and decamp to another area.

Nothing major, just a way to make the day flow better.

Thanks to everyone for a brilliant game! Thanks to the organisers, the supporters and the players who all did a brilliant job and gave it their all all day, even when the monsoon started.


Headshots idea above is a good one as it means you can fall back, sort out your kit, re-arm etc so engagements separated by small stag/ recon patrols so the force can rotate who is in action, seem likely to work well.

Yes, I agree that the large proportion of rifles and the MG team made it seem very realistic. The MG team worked really well together, and the fact that it did run out of ammo felt most authentic - simulating changing of belts and barrels.

My bites are just coming out now - all up my arms. How they managed to get up my sleeves, I don't know! :roll:

In Yorkshire we train our insects to know the enemy. :twisted: Although I thought I had none, I know look at my arms and see that I in fact have a fair few. :(

I've found that the best way to avoid insect bites is to stand near to Stu, as the little buggers always seem to go after him! Got no bites myself but I do have dozens of nettle stings and bramble cuts :slap:.

No bites, very few bramble cuts.

I kept my sleeves buttoned all day and have to thank Webby's HBTs for the lack of bramble cuts!
