Yup, just like the Avatar. I Like the copydex idea. Less hassle than spraypainting (not to mention less messy), and a damn sight less dangerous than me and a sewing machine.

I did a flag 12 years ago with it , it's still going stong .

Copydex sticks like ....like.....glue to a blanket :wink: . I used to use it on jeans many years ago and also landrover canvass, it just seems to love natural fibres .

Just back of holiday, thanks for the replys,

in our group ian will be bringing a g3 with bipod and drum mag, is this ok as MG15 / 34 (its got not modern stuff, ris scopes etc, and its all black)

hes also got 3 lo caps, so he could use it as a rifle, if the support weapons are filled up. ( in noticed 2 mg 42s in december)


if not i might lend him my thompson or my broom handle.


really looking forward to this one.

Erm, I'm not sure i'll have to see what the other guys think.
The g3 coutns as a g43 in our set, might be confusing if we allow one person to drum magad bipod it and not others

He does know that if he were to play it as a mg he'd have to 'deploy' each time he wanted to fire it and coulnt use it form the shoulder or kneeling?

The cost for the kit rental is nil, consider yourself a Grenadier and welcome to the Hohenstaufen. All you'll need is a decent pair of boots, such as ex-British army high leg lace ups. I take it that there's three of you, if so that leaves one complete set of kit left, including helmet and webbing(see photo page 3), hope you'll all take part in a bit of a photo shoot with us.
If anyone else needs kit just let me know and I'll bring it along. As for the sizes, its all fairly loose stuff ranging from medium to XL oak A camo smocks and woolen trousers, there's a set of shirts, green cotton, all size large, and four sets of gaiters which fit anyone, the leather belts are all adjustable up to size massive.

HOHENSTAUFEN FOR THE WIN!

Yup, no problem with the sizes, I'll bring the large and xtra large oak A smocks, and the panzerhose in oak A they have large adjustable waists and should fit, again no probs, they'll need some British army high leg boots to go with the gaiters, you can get them, second hand, for a tenner at most army surplus shops and look ok(or any black or brown lace ups). I use them myself, need to know what size for the helmets and or ski caps, I can get some green shirts again in large, all this stuff will fit 6" plus blokes easily.
