The old, how was it for you thread?!

Postby dcheetham89 » Sun Sep 20, 2015 7:23 pm

I have just regaled the future wife with stories of food, wine, stroles among the misty mountains of Albania and death charges in the names of the axis!

Fantastic day as expected, weather was great and the story was full of intrigue. We met the locals, not quite knowing their allegiance, kept constantly guessing on whether we could trust them of not.

There was some fabulous ambushes laid by the allies, we got a good one too. I think trigger time was perfect, lots of reccee yet I feel I got good use of the carcano.

It was also very nice to have a fellow feathered friend, 2 italian, 2 Scots, 2 poles a mix types of German, Canadians and a good contingent of Brits, and great Albanian partisanis, hell of a spectacle.

Thanks to Craig for a well written story (shut up it was Craig!) And all 3 squad leaders :good:

Really gutted that I ended up missing this one, I was absolutely bloody knackered the night before and I managed to oversleep, which I'm extremely pissed off at myself for, I was looking forward to seeing everyone again.

I'm glad to hear that a good time was had and I'd like to say thank you and sorry to Lutz and Muttley for agreeing to give me a lift and to Ranj for the loan of your rifle. I hope I didn't cause any inconvenience.

Rifle games and WW2 airsoft were made for each other :happyclap: , only downside is that my knees are scratched to buggery and covered in nettle stings, whose idea was it to wear a kilt :slap: , many thanks to Craig and the rest of the organisers for a great game, to Porta and crew for staying in character the whole game, the axis who seemed to be everywhere (was there really only 7 of you), and lastly to the allies for some great teamwork and camaraderie :good:

That's a real shame mate, Craig mentioned a couple games next year all being well so you can get stuck in then :good:
Unfortunately real life gets in the way, obviously you needed to sleep, everything for a reason right? :lol:

Yes, sorry you couldn't make it Moss.

Many thanks to Craig for organising another excellent adventure, and for Deans tireless enthusiasm in leading us to victory after victory (with possibly the odd setback along the way).

As Chef noted, whoever thought kilts were practical garment of war needs their head examined. Perhaps they don't have nettles in Scotland :lol:

I really enjoyed all the sneaking around and the partisans added an excellent unknown element. Two particularly memorable events seemed to involve getting shot, once in the face by an amazing shot by Sean right across the field and the other in the back of the head (under my helmet) by those treacherous partisans Bonus points to Porta for actually hitting someone with a D-boys. I was also surprised and bayonetted by a rubber bayonet wielding German, I really have no idea where he came from at all!

A great day out and looking forward to the next one.

Cheers
Martin

Well.

I'm not sure I have ever laughed so much during a game being around Porta and co! The apple selling was.......... :shock: My first time being "leader" of a side and thanks to Tony, Matt and Chris for making it a very easy and very enjoyable day! :good:

Big bangs and house building and a wonderful ambush! You should have seen your faces! I still can't believe all the Allies just followed us down the road so trustingly without so much as even the most basic precautions.........

The first WW2 event I have been able to make for almost 2 years I think and it was definately worth the air fare! (Yes I come all the way from Budapest for Craig's games :slap: :P ). Saving will be done to enable me to come to next years. I may even be fit enough to move by then too!

Despite what Craig was saying all the way home in the car it was a good game and everyone made it work and I felt there were a lot more people there than there were! And that is enough use of the word 'and'.

:kiss:

Martin im really sorry
It was my d boys that hit you in the back of the head (I was aiming at you helmet)

I had just shot you in the back but you obviously didn't feel it as you never even flinched, (DBOYS averages 220-270 FPS and is random as fook for accuracy ) so I tried to "ring your bell" so to speak and as I fired at your tin lid ,you leaned forward and it hit your neck area =(

Loved the game, me and the other guys still laughing and talking about it now

It is really not a problem, if you play airsoft you expect to get shot. If you hit me before, I really didn't feel a thing - maybe it hit my pack?

Anyway, no-one expects to survive an ambush.

An excellent day as per usual.. :)

Rifle only games are the best...

No, no...!!

Early war games are the best...

er...

My first game for a year, since the last EW Rifles game! I thought I might be a bit rusty, but soon got back into it.

Though I paid for it all with mega-aches and pains on Monday!

See you at the next one! :)
