I agree with dan on that one ;D there are NO ww2 British airsofters in my neck of the woods (or any ww2 for that matter, i have to go to Georgia!), it makes me want to pack up my gear and fly to the UK!
also, the location for this game is AMAZING, where was that?
Location was a place called "Phoenix Urban", somewhere in the Barbarian hinterlands (i.e. the Midlands) of the UK. The area is an old industrial site (I *think* it may have had something to do with steel manufacture) and was perfect for Arnhem (well, apart from lacking a bridge and a large river!), it would also make an amazing Stalingrad.
The day was quite simply awesome. Fair play to the para's, and Airlanding - not to mention the Dutch Resistance players! The quality of the players loadouts is getting better and better every time, and with 80+ people in WW2 gear there, it really felt like being in the film "A Bridge Too Far" at many points of the day.
Next stop, is 700+ acres of Wales for a non-stop weekend game in June!
The grenades are made by Tony Lewis of TLSFX. He's been doing Airsoft stuff for a couple of years now, but he started off doing battle pyro for re-eactment events a couple of decades ago. The stick grenades rock
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

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

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.
