Is this Soviet Group viable yet? I was at Boryszyn and saw the turnout. I have sent an email to Chommers with detail but need a central contact for Soviets to see if you want to attend a re-enactment show and use some real steel weapons 2nd May Bank Holiday.
Need someone "Soviet" to take on being central contact and Liaising with event organiser. AFRA will supply pyro and SFX - This is an opportunity to have a bite of the re-enactment cherry.... Fancy it?

The numbers with Soviet kit continues to grow. It must be that there are almost as many in airsoft as in re-enacting.
You have a very strong bargaining chip there. There are never enough soviets at private battles and so many German units that would love to fight them.
If you fancy a cross over you should put the word out.

Strange concidence this. I've never been interested in "traditional" reenacting, up until recently. I had been giving serious thought to joining 2nd Guards, as it's the Soviet side, believe it or not, which has begun to appeal to me!

Heh, I'm planning on joining them in the new year... probably! Not sure how many events I'll be able to get to though!

I've been considering it as well after talking to Yith about it at DH. I think I'll definitely have to look into joining them for an event at some point.

We have enough people for our own group but I still think its better to work with an existing group rather than forming something new. Better to unite under one banner; especially as the 2nd Guards seem very open to airsoft whilst we lack much of the heavier field kit so it could be mutually benefitial.

Comrades,
The Glorious 2nd Guards are a Fraternal Group to my own Glorious 13th Guards, if you wish to throw back the Gitlerite you can do good work with them.

Urrah!.

Soviet Group, I'm in. I hope to tag along with Yith to a reenacting event next year at some point if I can get a gun. may-haps.

Though a Soviet Group that runs a game will pretty much find me wading through swamps filled with fascist alligators to get to it :D

Because my usual re-enacting group (2nd batt essex reg) are cutting back on shows a little next year, I thought that it would be a great idea for me to join the 2nd guards as well, as they look to be a great bunch of lads (and lasses!), plus most of the shows are pretty local to me which is a bonus. I have got most of the m43 uniform bits and bobs to start with, just need to get a m35 uniform + early war eqipment, then I will be all set. :good:
