Really looking forward to the game. 60 players so far - good stuff! So, two questions;

> are single shot sniper rifles also set to max FPS of 370 with .2’s?
> for German 506 volks grenadier, is Camo allowed or should it be standard grey (for the late war Heer). I have a nice set of reversible white smock/trousers so I’m praying for snow (lol) but would be interested to know if the splinter/marsh Camo on the reverse is ok. (Seems some games reserve Camo for ss identification). If not I’ll stick with standard late-war coat, etc.

Cheers,
Ed.

Bolt actions are max 500fps (30m med).

Heer used camo in abundance and there's been no ruling against it here (why would there be :) ).

cheers

I've got a Bren skeleton vest he could use. Also depending on what size he is I have a Battle Jerkin to lend out.

he is scrawny mate. no where near as well fed as us. :whistle:
i like the sound of those two vests though, going to be googling them now.

Edit: the battle jerkin looks like a cracking bit of kit. much better thought out than the american d-day assault vest.

I've just been looking at the weather for Saturday , could be snow :good: but could be sleet and rain with a max temp of 3° :( , that's right in the goldylocks zone for hypothermia ! Might be a good idea to have waterproofs under your uniform or use rain capes if you have them :good: hopefully we get some nice snow in the morning and no rain .

Can we get a confirmation of this as the rules make no mention of any weapon above 370fps ? , I'd be kind of surprised to see sniper rifles used at a ww2 game ?

Uh oh, here we go, "there were no snipers in WW2!" Lol.

If you'd been following the general discussion on facebook you'd know the ethos debated was one of as wide an inclusion as possible to stop putting people off WW2 milsims. We've had enough of that control-freak BS. ;)

Actually you're right, it does need to be clarified. It says "1. Aeg's and single shot skirmish weapons 370fps. ".

Bolt-action rifles are hugely disadvantaged against full-auto ones if the rifle has no greater power than an SMG, which is why 500fps has always been the rule for bolts. Having a scope on it is incidental.

I don't use the book of many faces so know nothing of the debate you speak of but I do feel somewhat taken aback by your agressive attitude to a simple question , are you on the planning committee for this game Langnasen ? Or would it be better to allow one of the game planning committee to answer the question ?
I virtually only use a sub 350 fps bolt action rifle at all WW2 games I go to so I'm fully aware of their strengths and weaknesses , my favourite games are bolt action only games , I feel that I'm in no need of a lecture from a relatively new forum member .
This is a friendly forum please let's keep it that way .

1. Advertising and booking are on here
2. Where on Facebook? I have seen no mention of it on the Ultimate Paisley Underground 1980s Psychedelic / Neo-Psychedelic Scene page nor on Strictly Come Dancing 2018
3. Not everyone's on Facebook...

That does actually seem perfectly clear.

This will be my 48th WW2 Airsoft event and apart from a very few the rule has always been 350-370fps for all guns. Sorry.

Sorry Dadio, I'm afraid I took your original comment as passive-aggressive. Apologies if it wasn't. I did use "lol" and a smiley, there was no aggression intended. :)

It's been clarified via PM with Seg...scoped bolts are 500fps, 30m MED, non-scoped are 370fps (though I've put the case for having them at 500fps also). :)

Maybe 450fps, ala traditional non-scoped DMR rules at every skirmish and milsim I've been to (quite a few, non-WW2). :)
