The how was it for you thread

Postby Mattywheels » Sat May 23, 2015 4:35 pm

To start off by expressing my thanks and gratitude to the AGS team - another stellar event guys, thanks so much for running yet another excellent game. The props and setting were outstanding and really set the scene for Kasserine (the weather, not so much but i'll let you guys off on that point!). Also for organising an event so close to home, I like games that are 45 mins door-to-door (including sitting in traffic!) 8)

The sandpit is a challenging site, my first time up on the plateau and it was hard to take and hold ground given the relative lack of cover in a lot of places.

Always a pleasure fighting along side Martin, Tim, Matt, Matt, Andy, Steve, Russel et al - the DAK gave as good as we got, particular hats off to the Yanks who nailed us good and proper on the first ambush. We had NO idea what happened!

Kudos as well to the allies for fighting up that slope and finally taking the German CP at the end of the game. I know from the assault at Sevastopol how hard it is to get up that slope, so big well done to everyone.

So thanks again all, enjoy the bank holiday weekend. :good:

Another cracking event from AGS ,I love the site and all the props ,well run even if the plan slipped a bit ,and that's a real testimony to the team who got it back on track with no disorder ,speack volumes in itself .its getting to a point that in order to put on a better game we all need bigger planning teams so there's enough hands to do all the set up and coordination , I know how hard the AGS team worked before and after the game ,thank you all for a great day .

Thanks to the AGS team and to everyone who made it a great day. Special thanks to my fellow Brits and Colonials who watched my back and helped to keep my Bren loaded, also to Jerry A Trick for the watermelon! Loved the amount of pyro going on.

Can't wait to see all the pictures!

P. S. Did we ever use our super special pork pie bomb?
Regards,

Ralph

Many thanks to the organisers and players for a great event and to our CO for keeping us unruly yanks in some semblance of order. Loved the ribbon too! Sorry to dash off so fast at the end of the day as we would have liked to hang around for a while for some post event banter but I had missed a call and was needed at home urgently. (A three hour drive)

A great day, even with uncharacteristically North African drizzle, many thanks to the AGS team for all their hard work :good: , it was worth it guys. I've never been killed so often by pyro in just one game, but I did land two grenades in the middle of the Americans, so I guess that's even :whistle: , also thanks to my DAK kameraden.

Cheers

Firstly, many thanks to all participants who came and made it such a good event. The Friday night social featured some of the most cultured food I have known at an airsoft event: pate, Parma ham, French bread, olives, sundried tomatoes and various cheeses! Tim obviously won the best dressed person award, resplendent in his Napoleonic gear. 8)

Everyone turned up nice and early (except... you know who... :whistle: *cough* Charlie :wink: ) and so we were actually in the field before 10am. My first action with the DAK Heer was total annihilation by the Yanks - definitely the best ambush I have been victim of - and there have been many, I can tell you! :roll:

The area we were initially fighting over is really tough terrain, and I think we were all feeling the exertion by mid-morning. Highlight of the day was taking out the Brit high position with just 3 mortar rounds. I understand the decisive round actually hit Fremsley in the leg! :giggle:

The rain was an unwelcome guest for about an hour or so, and my feet were sopping wet, as it went straight through the canvas uppers of my DAK boots - necessitating removal and upending of said boots to pour the water out, and removal / wringing out of my socks. I felt a bit better after that. The final battle was epic, and it was only the ammo limit that prevented the determined attacks from succeeding straight away.

Favourite moment (apart from mortaring Fremsley) - watching Booted Feet bayonetting the Brits. I believe he got 3 or 4 bayonet kills. :giggle:

Wear your medal ribbons with pride, gentlemen and ladies. :good:

Many thanks to the AGS crew another epic event. I was too tired to post yesterday but now I have reached the more comfortable stage of 'every inch of my body aching' its a challenging site.

As we have now come to expect from AGS the organising and the props were brilliant, thank you for all your effort I know how much work goes into making props and setting them up for a game. However it all helped towards making it feel like we were in Tunisia :D

The Germans were excellent comrades to fight alongside and to drink with on the Friday night. The Allies played an excellent game I only saw the fairest play by everyone well done :good:

I am glad the Germans were on the attack in the morning and able to rest a bit in foxholes in the afternoon, well done to the allies and the yanks in particular for pressing there attacks so stubbornly, you came so close at one time only for you to be driven back, I admired the way you picked yourselves up and came back up the hill again and again.

Special mention must go to Jerry a trick for strawberry's and watermelon :good:

Looking forward to the next AGS game already.

Edit: The campaign medal ( a real one ) was a nice touch :wink:

was such a good game. highlights for me were right at the beginning with our US ambush, the allied firefight right before lunch (still in shock at how i was able to land a grenade right behind a bush at a german's feet :rofl: ), and of course finally reaching the top of that hill and capturing that german bunker. cheers to all the organisers and for jerry a trick for lending me and my brother his BAR, could not have imagined how fun it was working in a little team carrying it around all day :good:

Now I'm back in the land of the living I'd like to say thanks to all of the AGS team for putting on such a brilliant event, me and my girlfriend Nnendah had a really good time, she was made to feel very welcome and she got loads of pictures and a few video clips as well. She's keen to get to her second game soon. :D

It was good to see old and new faces, really good chatting and catching up with everyone. I had a nice time on the Friday night social, Tim's Napoleonic era uniform was really impressive, as was everyone's kit in general.

The battle was very exciting and the location was perfect, all the little props and details really made the day. The amount of pyro that was blasted to and fro was very fitting, seen as Kasserine was a battle decided by artillery, it helped enhance the day and set the scene.
Another brilliant day courtesy of AGS, thanks again guys and cheers for the campaign ribbon at the end, was a great little touch. :good:

P.S. I'll get those pictures posted as soon as possible.

Cheers, Dejan.
