SMGs will have very stringent ammo limits, so you might be better off with a rifle.

Sure, but presumably SMGs won't have less ammo than rifles? Real steel?

I was more thinking of SVT-40 vs 'Moisin' in any case.

It would be great if all Germans had black-Waffenfarbe shoulderboards - that's all. :D You all have three months to save up for them! :wink:

From looking at a lot of period photos, the A-frame was very common wear.

the black shoulderboards ,i can't find them , are the black with white piping or field grey with black piping? or better still just link to somewhere selling them :good:

Just the piping is black, engineer arm of service colour was black, infantry white, artillery red etc. I am sure Epic do shoulderboards with black piping.

Or you could just get a black laundry marker and colour in the piping on standard infantry boards! :good:

Alternatively I have a few pairs I can loan out on the day!

For in-game use a period style torch is highly recommended. No modern sure-fire, LED Tac light type torches are permitted to be used in game but there is no problem bringing them to help you rummage through your gear or sort out a gun issue.

The tunnels are well lit in the safe zone area but the tunnels in the game area will be dimly lit at best with some areas which are totally pitch-black.

We will get some guidelines up shortly on what's acceptable for in-game use :good:

This sounds good to me. Factory worker looks to be the way forward for me. No rifle though :cry: way too expensive those things :evil:

Don`t worry about the rifle use a MP40 they would have been in plentiful supply from all those dead Germans.

Are all your gang coming?

As Gordon says, MP40 is fine, although a suitable bolty is definitely NOT expensive. How about a JG376 with wood effect stock ? Perfect for a Militia civilian hunting rifle for this and any other event! :good: Only 65€ from here:

Anyway,hope you can all make it. :good:

How weird :?

I didn't write half that stuff :?

I've been looking at rifles. Some nice ones out there. Problem is my UKARA has run out and I don't go to skirmish sites anymore. Only do ww2 games with you guys :D

Have seen a VSR 11 in two tone (well orange) which is tempting as I can 'brown' it up? It is also sub 350 which is what I want from a rifle. I would like to able to blat up close if needed :twisted: .

I think at least 3 have shown interest, maybe more later. You said you had Soviet kit on a lend/lease basis? Any details?

Cheers.
Adrian.
