Sounds sensible to me, I know that the 34th have a lot of M1's and a few of the Alte Hasen squad will have K98's so being organised in their sections would be ideal. We're still finalising the ammo limits and game rules, but needless to say we are looking at moving this towards a game where SMG's will not be the 'kings of the battlefield' as they have been before. We will have strict ammo limits and it would be advantageous to players to carry a rifle if they have them. :good:

Additionally, it is worth pointing out that this wont be an event where players will go through 10,000 rounds in a day. There will of course be moments of intense firefights, but equally there will be tasks to complete that may not require a shot to be fired. I hate the term 'milsim' but we are trying to run an event that will be more 'WW2 experience' rather than bearing any resemblance to an open day!

I was planning on using a rifle for this one.

I have noticed a bit of 'SMG creep' in recent games, but hey ho. Low ammo limits and a long, long walk back to HQ to reload may cure that,

Cheers

Hopefully people don't mind me using a G43. It's an m14 conversion but locked to semi auto. I can see if I can get my hands on a kar98 if people would rather I use a boltie.
Regards,

Ralph

I'll be using my G43 with the K98 as a backup. I wouldn't worry about it too much, any sort of wood stocked weapon just looks so much better than a sea of MP40s and Thompsons.

G43 is fine mate. :good:

Oh and Chris, I'm working on a new Bayou accent a la True Detective. I have merely scratched the surface!

Hmm, I see the US Infantry are already full up...

I do not have M42s. Can I assume M41s and M1937 trousers are acceptable as glider infantry as per the middle drawing on your example, or are you only after paratroops?

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

Up to you Charlie, that would be fine if you want to be airborne, but if you want to go as US infantry we'll make the squads bigger if necessary until we hit maximum numbers.

Would an MG34 gunner be acceptable for this game?

Yep that would be fine, but we will be limiting the number of HMG's at this event - if you can state when booking if you are intending to carry a HMG and we'll book you in as the gunner for that section.

Sorry if it's a repost here, but are any Waffen-SS slots gonna show up in any shape or form?

Afraid not, there will be no SS units at this event.

I'm sure you would be able to borrow Heer or FJ kit from someone if you stick a post up in the borrowing thread?
