We are a group of living historians/re-enactors portraying the soldiers of the 1 SS, 2 Kompanie Pz. Gren., 3 Btl. We strive to be historically and authentically correct. We do this to honor the soldiers of this epic period, and to help keep history alive. We do this by dressing, acting, and living the same way the men and women did during WW2 while attending events. We are based in the New England area.
The 1st SS was a very active unit thoughout all of the war. They fought in countries such as Poland, France, Greece, Italy, and Hungary. They were in areas like the Balkans, Kharkov, and Kursk. The 1st was involved in several high profile operations such as Barbarossa, Goodwood, Luttich, And Spring Awakening. They were also involved in the Ardennes Offensive fighting in the Battle of the Bulge. The soldiers of the first fought until the last days of the war when they were captured or surrendered in Berlin.
This is a new unit looking for troops. We focus on the battle side of reenacting. Not a ton of displays or parades. We do tactical and public battles.
We are also forming the unit for airsoft. We want to split our time as equally as we can between the two hobbies.
Our unit goal is to become one of the dominant forces on the field of battle. We strive to be tactically sound, and overwhelm the opposition with teamwork and professionalism.
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.
