Thought I'd share with you some pictures from the UK Army Group South Airsoft event held this weekend just gone.
The event was held at UCAP "The Sandpit" site, a 500 acre diss-used quarry with a host of features including a warehouse area and a very large lake which for our event served as the Severnaya Bay. The event pitted infantry and Sturmpionieres of the German 22nd Luftlande div against the soviet 90th Rifle regiment and the 8th Naval Infantry brigade. The german forces were tasked with the destruction of the gun turret of the Maxim Gorky Naval battery, it's power station and then finally to clear out the remaining troops from the Sevestapol dockyard area.
As this was an early war event kit and unit restrictions were tight and it was Heer only on the german side. despite this we had a fantastic turn out and had a full 30 germans all in Heer Feldgrau and all with Stahlhelms. not a single cammo smock to be seen! The standards of kit were also excellent on the Russian side also.
The event also featured vehicles (a couple of german Krad combo's) A nearly full scale naval gun turret with 9inch guns, working pyro mortars on both sides and a number of custom airsoft weapons including a superb ZB Vz26 LMG
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
