This game is a first for me, ive always been happy to just turn up and follow orders and let others do the planning, but on this game Im really looking forward to helping organize. The game isnt as hardcore or historical as a CIA run game, and more of a fictional theme, but ww2 nonetheless, and it promises to be a good blast.

The site is my personal favourite for the best event ive ever been to, and if you havent been, i strongly reccomend looking at the excelent video of the CIA game kindly made by BedsnHerts, here

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvFJVfihzuI

ive only been here once, to the CIA game, as the site normally operates a semi auto only rule, and i dont like that. (Though the site IS FULL AUTO for this game)

The CIA game was amazing, and it would be a very tough act to follow, but were giving it a try. Anarchy under the Eagle will be a more film sim game the reenactment, (think kellys heros crossed with enemy at the gates) but the now almost industry standard CIA rules will be used. (if it isnt broke dont fix it)

Now my Russain brothers, here is the russian secret weapon.

The rolling wave.

at the gunman game "border clash" i tried an idea with the russains.
the standard human wave attack, but the differance being, as long as the flag is held aloft, the last dead man on the floor can get up and keep following the attack. so there is a constant stream of men running forward, as long as the flag is moving FORWARD and Held high, it requries a constant supply of men to make this happen. The enemy have to completly isolate the flag from the russains to stop the attack. (which can be done with good volumes of suppressive fire, but one or two men alone will not hold back the glourious soviet attack)
this helps as a temporary force multiplier, to break heavily fortified positions, or capture objectives. Though THEY ARE LIMTED IN NUMBER, and i mean a few.
Also they can only be launched by the commanders, to prevent farby gameing of the rules, but can be booldy good fun. Ive led 3 and loved every one. (any group of russains can do a human wave at any time they wish, but without the zeal of the flag, you cant get up and roll forward)

any idiots .... aahhm...... brave heros wishing to Volunteer to lead the flag charge pleased make yourselfs known, though in the charge most russians will hold it at one point.

any questions or ideas, feel free

The rolling flag sounds like a great idea, I missed the second day of Border Clash so only did the 'normal' human wave attack which was great fun but we all got killed quite quickly.

I've not been to Kinver before, is there going to be space for a human wave attack in the tunnels?

I'll be wearing the same gear as at Border Clash, although probably with high boots rather than puttees this time. M43 uniform, helmet, slung plash, basic webbing but I'll put the shoulderboards back on for this. My 'SVT-40' is fixed now so I'll bring that, but maybe also a lend lease Thompson as a spare.

Cheers

Our perspective? It didn't matter how much you shouted we still mowed you down. :lol:

Heh, the charges were awesome and filled the tunnels with adrenaline as well as UUrrrraaaaggghhh's. Very atmospheric & exciting. :good:

It made picking targets a very swift and concentrated exercise........ as CW says - they got mowed down due to superior Gitlerite weapons technology.

OK I had a email from a Russian friend and now know what it is. :D

Heh that's pretty easy. Its called Osvobozhdenie (Liberation) a 1969 film. Biggest scale battles and most realistic and expensive movie about WW2 ever produced in Soviet Union. I watched A LOT WW2 movies made by different countries and never seen any films come close topping Liberation. It features huge scale battles with thousands of troops, real vehicles and planes depicting the most brutal battles of Eastern Front. There are total 5 full feature films in these series.

Here some detailed info about it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberation ... _series%29


:shock: That does it red star goes on my tank tomorrow :happydance:
