Superb day all around. Thanks Gadge, Yith, Evo and Major.

The Pillbox looked excellent, especially when I was flattened in a very wet ditch completely suppressed about 30m away.

I liked the "combat mission" format too, it worked really well, everything seemed a bit more realistic and kept everyone in sections too.

No respawns but using the medic was a good compromise between "one hit and out" and "unlimited lives".

I hope you do more games in this mould, then we'll have CiA for out and out spectacle filmsim and fun, and PBI doing the occasional more gritty realistic game, and Gunman somewhere in the middle (Josh's format isn't too disimilar to the 45min games).

Thank you to the PBI, great day. (and I didn't loose any mags or get shot in the mouth!)

Well done Germans. Thought it was going to be a tough command with the amount of new faces in our ranks, but all soldiers followed orders with German efficiency and fought well. Hope you all got a good mix of tasks and didn't get either, too bored or too shot to sh*t.

The British looked excellent, great effort on the uniformity. (I never feel 100% comfortable about shooting British troops)

It was good to meet the new players, all splendid chaps, and I hope to see them playing again.

now that the migraine has cleared, I can offer my 2 penneth.

Thanks to the PBI organisers for putting on a great day, I know its been echo'd around a few times, but I loved the 45 minute games. It brought a whole new element to my game that I never thought I had, engaging and withdrawing, who'd have thought it, webby shying away from a firefight.... but letting the squad down by being 1 man fewer in a tight battle was important.

I managed to crawl all of about 50 metres down the right flank to try and read what was written on the 'blurry' German CP sign, I was sure I had been spotted a number of times, however Che walked within about 10 metres from me and didnt see! 8)

Was good to see all of the Brits in almost identical kit, and good to see the fine turn out (as usual) from the Germans. Field Grau is much easier to spot than the the camouflage that you normally wear hehe :)

Well done to the Germans for winning the day, it was hard graft fighting against you and you thoroughly deserved it :D

Best part of the day was shooting out of the rhodie bush in all directions at the end, I've not known a thompson mag last so long.

Thanks to Yith for letting me borrow his spare denison and to Gadge for letting me borrow his para helmet.

Hopefully it won't be as long before I get to don the British stuff again!

Thanks to the F&O crew for the usual friendly banter and hospitality! See you all at the next 1 :)

Damn Hi-Caps or even mid-caps, trying to be offensive with an MP40 and standard mags, is 'realistic' but sux when u run out just as you spot more movement ahead than expected and have to change mag.

I could take my own Thompson M1A1 out to play as captured kit, but that would feel wrong :wink:

Nice to see you wear roughouts for a change Webby :lol: heheehehe

Oh and Helga told me to tell ya - U'r a CHAV, with Chav car :rofl:

I think Im going to have to get a bunch of TM midcaps and damn the cost...Hicaps just feel...wrong.


The 20rnd 2/3 size ones have a capacity of 190, which is a good compromise between the lo- and hi-caps. They look good on a Thompson too! :D

Glad you all had a good day of it and the weather held out for you as well! Did the Germans not get organised and do a group photo at all?
