Thanks to Craig and Dean and all those who attended, for a great day out. I was so glad that the weather held for us too - rifles are a lot more fun when there's little to no wind and, gas rifles are less temperamental when the sun is shining! It was good to see so many 350fps weapons being used and, on several occassions, I was glad that I got my Tanaka down to that level, when Poles popped up only a few feet away. I racked up a very healthy amount of kills too, proving that super high power isn't always needed, particularly on a site like Grange Farm.

The day was well paced and, I very much liked the medic rules in use too, so, well done for doing something new with that too. I'm sold on the concept of rifles to the fore now and, will look forward to any other games that embrace this idea.

I have now posted a brief report on my blog (http://megablitzandmore.blogspot.co.uk/ ... rhine.html) which features some of the photos seen on this thread. As the blog gets around 300 hits per day, it's quite a good way of bringing WW2 Airsoft to a wider audience.

Thanks again for the photos!

Nice vid marsha. Though it doesn't tell the whole tale, Porta, throughout the day there were some pretty intense firefights with rapid advances & retreats.
