We are waiting for them to check with their insurance peoples about them. We want them, but the look of fear on their faces when we mentioned it means they will be getting back to us. :giggle:

As soon as we know, you shall.

We like the idea of vehicles, but the site owner wasn't sure and needs to check his insurance. We'll let you know when we have more info.

Do bare in mind though that only some areas of the site are accessible to vehicles. Well over half isn't.

So don’t think I marched there for this reason – it could carry another name – but because there is a very important goal... this goal I wanted to take – and you know – we are very modest, we have it already."
Adolf Hitler, November 1942

"Comrades, Red Army men, commanders and political workers, men and women guerrillas! It is on your perseverance, staunchness, fighting skill and readiness to discharge your duty to the country that the defeat of the German-fascist army and the liberation of the Soviet land from the Hitlerite invaders depend! We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."
Joseph Stalin, November 1942

This is what we're really looking for.
http://www.ww2airsoft.org.uk/us-infantryman/

Though ALL the webbing is completely optional. And the M41 jacket can even be dropped if a Wool shirt is used instead.

For cheap wool shirts and trousers try these:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WWII-US-M37-w ... 23148553a4
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WWII-US-M37-O ... 2314855148

Those are auctions that have ended. But check his other sales for ones that have not and if you can't find any, message him to ask him to put one up.

And don't forget any M43 stuff is also acceptable... Just not really HBTS if you can avoid them :)

Only if they really want to...

I'm hoping that no one will though!

I won't be that's for sure!

I'd actually be happier if people had minimum webbing.

Perhaps it might be a good idea to suggest kit which you'd like so not to scare off people, rather than a pic of mostly marching order!

ie Belt order, or pack, whichever suits the individual!

You need a belt, to hold your water-bottle.

The rest is up to you.

Dunno if I've missed it, or, if it's not been asked yet but, all day game, or a series of short games?

Assuming we get the numbers required to run it as such, it will be 'a bit of both'. massively confusing I know but we want the day to work well with what we have, so won't be able to put the precise details of what you need to know in the rules until we have an idea how many we will be catering for.

Yes, assuming that we get enough people, there'll be no need to move start positions artificially. This is helped by the nature of the site.

However it is very likely that "regen" will be heavily controlled.

The details have yet to me decided. I know what you want is a continuous flow of immersion and I hear you and I think we'll be trying to work to do just that.

Do they allow 8mm at MAW?

lol, when I asked about my carbine they didn't even know what 8mm was!

However they're set up for chronoing different weight bbs (except the .36g bbs I was using :slap: ) so assuming that your rifle is under the 350fps limit as converted to the weight of bbs you're using with it then you'll be ok.
