This game focused on a Soviet partisan operation in Eastern Karelia in summer 1943.
The theme of the game was patrolling, evasion and tracking. We had two Soviet patrols and two Finnish patrols. Area was about 170 acres. During the game there were only two enemy contacts and only one wounded casualty.
The game started 6 PM and ended next morning around 10 AM and it rained about half of the time. Since we were patrolling, there were no tents, sleeping bags etc. - we slept on ground under spruces and (wet) great coats. These (cell phone) photos are mostly pre-game.
Well, that looks fun. 170-acres? That's a nice sized piece of play area. Uniforms and weapons look good too as far as I can tell. Sounds like trigger time was limited though but that's okay as long as everyone was immersed in the scenario which from the sounds of things, they were.

Looks like a great event and very challenging. It must have been dense woods as with 170 cares I would have thought there would have been more contact? Perhaps with the rain it was mostly huddling in on place. Either way it sounds like a very dedicated group.

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.
