Thanks for the greetings guys, I've put up a pic of my MG42 in another thread, but its far from finished. Just gotta keep up the work on it and stop spending all me time drinking and gambling(well, I am 27th penal panzer at heart :wink: ).

LardassMonkey - a member of the KG-SS or the honorary Soviet for training purposes?

If any SS kit needed for events - I'll bring spares.

Welcome to the group my friend :good:

Thanks for the welcome chaps.

A full blown member, hopefully in time for the training day. The Soviet kit will still be along for the training day and will be out for any Eastern front game I'm afraid.

Welcome to another new member, Pinkpanzer (Paul), most of you should know him from the Bryansk game. He's also a reenactor, so his kit is already spot on.

Also, to keep you all up to date, I have removed Ben Haynes from the member list. He only had 2 posts to his name and he has never posted on this private forum. There will probably be a few others getting the chop after the December game if we don't hear from them.

On the subject of adding and chopping....

I'm stepping away from the group now (all groups in fact) as I can't give any sort of meaningful commitment from now on. I only do 100% so it doesn't seem right to give half-measure! I've devoted over 2,000 hours to the WW2 project over the past two years and I can't keep it up for ever - every WW2 game of all organisations, every training day of all factions, every site recce and planning meeting of CiA games as well as designing and running the web site and forum. It's not a complaint, it's all self-inflicted after all, but just a dose of realism. I'm at the sharp end of the recession (and I've run a business through two previous) and it's going to be really bad next year, plus two kids in higher education plus I need to neglect the wife a little less.

Still, you aren't getting rid of me :evil: - 100% commitment to the CiA organisation and the four games planned for 2009, and running the web site and forum. Anything else I can do will be a bonus.

I wish you good luck with your ambitions and thank you for your camaraderie, it's all been great fun.

I've already sent comms to David with regards to this post - well I sent my thoughts last night.

It's difficult times and if I my be so bold as to voice the groups thoughts - get yourself in as comfy a position as you can, look after your nearest and dearest my friend.

There's always a place for you within the Hohenstaufen :good:

Sorry to hear about your decision but I can't say I'm that surprised. You've missed what, one ww2 game in 2 years? I'm impressed you kept it up this long! I'm glad you're still going to be around with CiA though, wouldn't be the same without you. :good:

Heh, not so much missed a game, more avoided it! (Carrot tin)
Thanks for the kinds words all, see you all in December.

BTW, bit off topic but while I'm here... Axis will have a mortar at your disposal - Guy will be your 1IC. I'd suggest you try and keep Hohenstaufen together as a cohesive attack force and let the Heer/FJ use the mortar (it must have a designated three man crew). Expect to be in the thick of it from the very start but once you have consolidated you will need to change mode to recce. Good communications up and down the line will be vital - both Guy and I will be commanding at a distance, more often than not out of sight of troops and battles. If we don't have intel we can't make plans and we can't put people in the right place and you will end up with ghey airsofter's firefights and standoffs, or worse have the enemy run away with the game. This game is about strategy, command and control...
