On the subject of an Africa game and the lack of a suitable site I discovered one today that could have potential. Its a quarry at Kirton nr Boston, Lincs, used by the Lincolnshire airsoft club. I can't believe I've never heard of it before- I only live 20 miles away. :slap: I'd say it looks more arid than desert but it seems quite a bit bigger than The Rock at Portland. Anyone been there/know what its like?

I've not been there but the biggest problem (apart from you) is it's in Lincolnshire - almost completely inaccessible from the rest of the country (with good reason :rofl: ).

Still, yes, on a hot day that looks good - not much cover though!

Well it is near Boston so I'm surprised its not cordoned off from the outside world completely. :lol:

There does seem to be lack of cover, I guess we'll just have to do it properly- use lots of vehicles or dig trenches. :D

Well, you asked for it! The UK's first early war event. Camouflage-free, this will see the Germans in feldgrau and the Brits in brown (heh, even a bit of blue as the RAF can join in).

I'm not sure the French wore blue then - as far as I remember they abandoned the light blue kit very early on.
Still, up for discussion in the unlikely event someone wants to come as a Frenchy! However, RAF types would be very cool...

No the French didn't wear blue. The uniform was largely the same as the blue WW1 version but was khaki.

I'm looking forward to this game. I'm going to need a few extra bits to get the look right but it will be worth it. :good:

The uniform would also work for Polish in France, if the 'French' thing gets to you. Originally on arriving in France they were equipped, those that even were, with the horizon blues but after a bit of badgering, and the slightly more imminent German 'involvement' they were equipped with the French Khaki uniforms.

Poles are tricky as they had 3 distinctly different (4 counting Berling's soviet force) uniforms, but also easy as the post 1940 uniform was British with a badge or two different, and the 1940 one was French - again with different badges.

Of course for the highest degree of early war funkometric aceness Norway has to win, as the Poles get a cape and a feather on the helmet (also a Swastika :shock: )
