This event is looking doubtful with current numbers.
It's a shame to cancel I am happy to run with small numbers but need a viable turn out.
Any more takers?

I can swap to Allies if the numbers are still very imbalanced.

Maybe call for volunteers in a week or so?

Cheers

Unfortunately I'm going to have to miss this one now. My elderly parents have found out that they will be completing on their new house on Friday 26th Feb and are relying on me to get them in and sorted. Very disappointed to miss this and especially with the numbers so poor :(

If someone would like to take my place, you can have it completely free of charge PM me, first come first served and I'll confirm with the organiser who'll take my place.

Sorry again all.

Hi Seg
Hopefully my booking is confirmed courtesy of Matteywheels,however my kit is German not Alied.
Also i have not been to a ww2 only airsoft event before ,and i wont know anyone at the event,and also
my kit is incomplete,my trousers are modern flecktarn at the moment.
I dont want to offend anyone with incorrect gear but i have to build up my kit over time,
I have an original m42 with blurred edge cover,matching smock ,just arrived,stumgewhere,y straps so far.
Normay i do modern airsoft with my son,you know M4,AK G3 and so on.
Any way let me know what any newcomers may be forgiven kit wise,i don't want to miss out.

As regards the trousers i am 5ft 6in tall and 32 waist,so everything is massive on me,
Spare mp44 mag pouch may help, or i may not need it due to the low ammo limit.
If i can get advice on what to buy on the day i am all ears,then i can build an impression.

I've got some tie leg pea-dot trousers that are about a 34" waist that might be okay with a belt, that you're welcome to borrow if you want. With regard to a spare ammo pouch, the ammo limits are actually quite high for a ww2 game, but since ww2 games are less shooty it's very rare that I would use more than 3 magazines before a reload, so if you already have one pouch you should be okay.

With regard to advice on kit, check out the site kit guides, and if SS is your thing check out the Waffen SS section in General & Specialist Axis Discussion. Best advice is to buy once, don't go for a "make do" as you'll want to change it later for something better. Also go for a more generic impression, that will be better suited to the variety of game scenarios.
