A WW2 Airsoft Event 26th May 2012 `The Corridor of Death`

Postby Hänschen klein » Tue Mar 13, 2012 6:16 pm

Closing the Gap Battle for Argetan 18-20 August 1944 `The Corridor of Death`
When: Saturday 26th May 2012
Where : Elite Action Games Worthing. http://www.eliteactiongames.com/worthin ... directions
How Much: £20 including one of Jimbos famous lunchtime burgers Please inform me If you are a Veggie
Scenario
A what if Scenario. Chaos is all around with the 7th German Army trying to escape the clutches of the invading Allied armies. With the US / British Army boundary just beyond Argentan, the point where the `Gap will be closed`, a rear guard blocking force is being set up by the remnants of the exhausted German Army. Wehrmacht, Fallschirmjager and SS troops have been thrown together to buy time for the main force to retreat, to fight another day. Will the gap be closed or will the beaten but still coherently organized German Army escape to fight another day?
Troops:
German: Any troops LW Fallschirmjager Heer or SS (If someone wants to come as a Blitzmadel` then feel free all sorts of troops would have been trying to force their way out and would have been piecemeal units)
Allied: As this was the junction between the Allied armies any troops can take part: US infantry,Airborne, British infantry, including Airborne and French Infantry (They were present in and around Avenelles apparently) or French Resistance ` OoooLalaaaa`
Uniforms requirements: inclusive rather than exclusive. (No modern kit. Please keep to WW2 equipment if you need to borrow some kit please ask we may be able to lend kit out)

Definitely No Laser sights Acog sights Grenade launchers or radios please.

Weapons: Any WW2 weapon and any bolt action rifle. (Please scrim up any modern bolt action weapons) No look a like weapons please apart from an appropriate M14.

Site rules can be found on Elites web site.
Facilities: Camping and a small social on Saturday night you must bring water as there is none on site. There is No toilet on site but There is a Tesco 5 min away and a `Golden Arches restaurant` 10 mins away both of which have amenities.

Game rules:

HITS:
BB hits on any part of the body count, Ricochets and gun hits don't.
Once hit you must drop to the ground and indicate loudly that you've been hit. We'd prefer a good theatrical scream rather than just a pale pink "hit"

A wounded player can be medic'd once at any time and get back in the game. There is no timed bleed-out. You can wait for an hour for medical assistance if you want to or you can head back to re-gen after five minutes. It's up to you. If you medic another player you must spend at least 1 minute applying dressings, murmuring words of comfort, stealing his watch, etc.
A second hit after being medic'd will kill and require you to impersonate a corpse until the firefight around you is over (or after a reasonable amount of time if you're stuck in no-man's land). Don't immediately rise from the dead and wander off. After the shooting has stopped you must return to a re-gen point where you will be able to replen your ammo.
Grenades, artillery, mines and all mortar shells (including smoke) have a 5 meter instant kill radius regardless of whether anything actually hits you.
To avoid being repeatedly shot, remove your cap or helmet when returning to a re-spawn point. Players without headgear are deemed to be not in play.
Dead men can't talk. Wounded men can't talk (except to say "aargh, that really hurts"). Medic'd men CAN talk - they are back in the game.
If a bb hits you then you're hit. No arguments. No "my shot hit you first" or "you must have cheated to get into that position" rubbish.

Ammo Limits
Rifles and submachine guns - 200 per person per life. This is a maximum and represents the most ammunition you can carry. Ammo cannot be carried over from past lives or stockpiled.
Support weapons - 1500 per life. NOTE - in order to get another full 1500, the gun itself must return to re-spawn point. Members of a gun crew who leave their weapon to re-spawn will only be allowed 200. All support weapons to be fired deployed or on a wall or a comrades shoulder. No Rambo hip firing with support weapons.

Protection All players to wear suitable eye protection. No Darthvader Screaming Skull masks please.

Above all we want people to immerse themselves into the game (No lone Wolfs) fighting together as a team.

Bookings
Paypal a gift of £20 to thefourturners@tiscali DOT co DOT uk, stating your forum name, real name and whether German American British or French.
If paying by bank transfer or cheque please PM me for details.

Bookings are non-refundable, but transferrable to someone else who wants to be on the same side.

I have a small skewer hidden in the collar of my jumping jacket, and a razorblade in my gaiter, as well as my knife.

We normally state 14 as a minimum age but will bend on that slightly if they're accompanied by a responsible adult!

Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.
i'll kill a man in a fair fight or if i think he's going to start a fair fight or over a woman or.......
a problem shared is a problem halved ,but an advantage shared is no advantage at all
if a job's not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well
