I've thought about doing it just for the heckuvit. They weren't exactly lavishly supplied, so there's not that much stuff you have to buy, and you can make do with some German and "liberated" Russkie field gear. Hikishop carries the basics. But where around here would anyone ever do a Winter War game?
You can find some Finnish movies about the Winter War and the Continuation War on Youtube. Look for "Talvisota" and "Tali Ihantala". The complete movies are there. There's also clips from another movie, "Rukajärven tie" but I haven't found the whole thing. They seem pretty accurate as far as costuming.

I suck when it comes to alot of the gear used by finnish troops during the war, but I bet some swedish stuff was around. Over 8.000 swedish volunteers participated alongside Finland in 1940, and swedish gear is pretty cheap and readily available on the web. Just a small tip for a pretty cool and unusual impression!
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.

ajman: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
