Looks interesting keep posting on here as a lot of us don`t use face book so you will miss out on a lot of the Hmmm `Older veteran` members.

Are you running it or just posting on behalf of the site?

What sort of format will the `Games take`??? Will they be paintball type things Take the flag etc or will they be structured etc.
Cheers

Just had a look at the site, online. I might go to this, 1 reason, to check out the site, 2, I can use bolt action rifles at full whack! 3, to see who else turns up! It would be nice to have structured games, but I don't really care, just seeing how it goes will give myself info how "theme "games go.
If enough people from here turn up it could well " structure" the game to be a decent game.

Apologies! Between work and working on the site I completely neglected this post!

Yes I am co-running the event. The game modes are still being decided but we have our main one being a beach landing (even though we are in a forest!) which will consist of an assault upon fortified positions. The capture of two lines of defense and then the final 'fort'. However we may extend it depending on if we get higher numbers!

A bandage/medic rule will definitely be involved for that longer game and we are yet to decide on the others having the rules yet. The game modes will be as themed as we can make them and as its still a skirmish we hope to make them fun.

Provided we get definite booked numbers then plan is to buy in specialty pyro such as stick grenades and some smoke generators for the landing gamemode (which we have made a whole new zone for this event.)

If possible and you can book it would be helpful so we can get an idea of scale and team balancing. It can be done here.

Hi, how are you doing for numbers? Myself +1 are planning on attending. On that note, are the teams suitably balanced because we can come as either side. Cheers :good:

There was a booking error on the website that stated the teams were full. (Thanks to Dada Phlott for discovering it!) That has been fixed now.

Just a quick note to increase numbers and boost collective support from the forum would be to put up a booking list as per other games advertised. That way people can see How many people are committed etc (Stops sill questions about is it worth booking not sure of numbers) but most importantly when you see So and So from the forum has booked FJ or SS you are more likely to book as well its a bit of a Herd mentality.

Keep up the good work I am sure you will get enough players on this new site.
PS drop the Farcebook thing us oldies cannot get that and you loose out. This forum was set up by the WW2 community for the WW2 community so its the first stop shop for people :good:

Nice, if people are still looking to book please do! The weather is looking to be in our favour and for any Axis players out there we could certainly do with your support. We know there are people coming who haven't booked so I would not take the confirmed bookings as an accurate estimate.

I think quite a lot of people are still apprehensive about weather. While we know of a few that are coming who have not booked Im hoping we do see more especially for Axis.
