Ah yes, I forgot the results !

Germans won the am by a whisker , courtesy of the Allies abandoning the fuel dump and it being found by the enemy. The Allies resoundingly won the pm, recovering the plans , & kicking the Germans out of Trois Ponts .
So it was a draw at one game all, or if you want to be precise as to the total numbers of points gained during the day , the Allies won by a largish margin . :roll:

Wasn't helped in the pm by the Germans running out of ammo in their forward position when the supply convoys failed to break through and their ammo lost ......and how historically accurate was that then !


And to echo the other organisers comments .
Big thanks to all who came and made the effort, you all looked superb , you all played superb, and I just hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as I did .

Yeah I would like to say I big thanks to every1 who played and organised yesterday! I don't think I have ever experienced such intense rifle action before, especially when The Chef pinged 1 off my Steel from on the ridge! ( Thanks for aiming for where it wouldn't hurt chap! :) )

First time ever I have head shell shock from my head being a matter of inches from an exploding pyro, the little bugger looked so small, but I don't remember much in the following 30 seconds after it went off, thanks to the Marshall there for the quick response! All I can say is where u get knocked on your ass in Call of Duty and its all muffled and ringing,.... this is very accurate! ;)

Very much a well organised event commanders wise, I was never too far away from being able to hear Headshot's constant stream of "Get from Behind those Trees and move up!" shouts, and definately a well organised attack and defense by the Jerries, so well done there! :) Plus the agonising shouts of Jonnietatarrr from the top of the ridge before lunch time was very amusing!

The arty and mortar strikes brought a whole new level of game play in for me, I have not ever airsofted in such conditions, and I would quite happily pay a deposit (even if larger) for the next even so that the conditions and gameplay could be re-created in the future! Very well thought out and pure comedy seeing people scurrying out of their hidy-holes to escape them!

Well done chaps and chapettes, keep those photos rolling! :)

Toodle-pip!

Well guys . what can i say ??

Im pissed that we could'nt make this gig.

Too near crimbo and the distance kills us, i hope you guys and Close Action can get your heads together and come up with some sort of time table for 2007 so as to keep the ww2 events at apart :roll:


The photos look good (apart from the gogles :roll: ) LOL

Anyone get pics/video of the pyro going up ??

Lets hope 2007 has MORE ww2 game days on the go.

Anyway guys, im glad to see this was a success with the most ww2 airsoft kit in one area, its about time we showed the U.S airsofters we can match what the do, if not better.

Keep up the grand work

:)
Tired ?? come and i will put you too sleep BANG BANG

Fantastic day despite the december day length against us, artillary landing left right and centre (and no where in some cases :lol: ) capturing, losing and recapturing the same point several times. The amount of period stuff there allowed me to really get into the game. First WW2 event i've done and it wont be the only one (see what did there?) a big thankyou to the organisers behind this and gucci for letting them 1940's his place up, see you next time guys and gals

Big thanks from us to all the organisers.

Thanks as well to Tony, Phil and Paul of Baker Company.

We both thoroughly enjoyed it especially the morning's play - legging it down the hill away from the artillery strike - our counter attack across the road - defending Bastogne - it really did feel like the movies.

Our best airsoft day yet!

The limited ammo worked a treat too with everyone firing short bursts.

One idea for next time - how about giving the commanders and company leaders radios? I know it's not accurate but might have helped. Steve's pleas for information were starting to sound desparate at one point. Or, to keep in the mood, have maybe two or three people designated radio carriers, with a walkie talkie attached by string to their backpack. Just an idea.

The only trouble is, I now need a BAR or Bren, an MP40 would be nice too......

(By the way, sorry to the american I shot just as we took Bastogne, oops!)

You wouldn't understand Gadge, it's quite fashionable amongst the youth these days! (I knew I should have done an inspection of that parade :shock: ).
