Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 49 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

It’s another December, so it’s time for another silly Xmas game at Tuddenham!  Once again, the ELF (Evil Liberation Front) have shot down Santa’s sleigh and the presents have gone everywhere!  Will you join the elite SANTA security force in their mission to retrieve all the presents and save Christmas, or will you join the ELF fighters and keep all the pressies for yourself?

Please try and dress up for the event – at the very least a bright red or green hat!  It would also be really helpful if players could bring some gift wrapped empty boxes to use as objectives.  If you can’t make this weekend, we will be running a single day repeat on Saturday 23rd as a special event.

Next weekend, we will be doing the same thing at our Eversley site, so don’t forget your costumes and presents!

We are also running our annual “Who Ate All The Pies?” weekend at both Tuddenham and Eversley this year on the NYE weekend of 30th 7 31st December.  Always a popular event, the games are short and frantic to help you burn off those extra calories taken on over the previous week.

Regards,

Josh Smith

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had another really well attended skirmish event this month at Tuddenham, the quality of play over both days was outstanding, thank you everyone.  Don’t forget that we have three events lined up for you this month…

This weekend we return to the Awesome Huntley Wood site near Stoke-On-Trent in Staffordshire.  The game scenario this time is set in Ecuador with members of the CEF raiding rebel camps for intel on an HVT and a potential terrorist plot in Europe.  Free camping over the weekend and rental weapons available.

Next weekend we return to Tuddenham, continuing the search for intel with another FilmSim open event.  Limited ammo, bandages, longer scenarios, free camping and free tea & coffee.  What more could you want?

Regards,

Josh Smith


Special Events upcoming at Tuddenham

It’s that time of year again…

So we have our annual ELF vs SANTA silliness on the Xmas Eve weekend (23rd &24th) with the evil ELF having brought down Santa’s sleigh with an RPG and the presents have gone everywhere!  Can the SANTA forces save Christmas this year, or will the ELF cause utter destruction?

Fancy dress highly encouraged – bright red (or reindeer outfits) for the SANTA side, bright green for the ELF side, forget camo and hiding, this game is all about running around like an idiot having loads of silly fun!!!

The weekend after that is new year’s eve (30th &31st) and we will be holding our annual "Who Ate All The Pies?" skirmish as a full weekend event.  Short, dynamic scenarios to help you burn off all those extra calories and show off any shiny new kit you got the week before!

"Who Ate All The Pies?" comes to Eversley!

The ever popular post-weekend event from Tuddenham is coming to Eversley!  Designed to help you burn off all the excess calorific intake from the previous week and to give you an opportunity to show off any shiny things you got for Xmas, this is not one to be missed!

Free camping for the weekend and a caterer on site.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 45 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Huge thanks to all the guys who came and supported us on our first weekend at Huntley Wood – we had a great time as did the players.  We also had a few guys come down to check the site out, hope to see you next month.

This weekend we have our mid-month FilmSim open at Tuddenham – we will be playing Battlefield Rush style games with players fighting to detonate or defuse timed explosive charges.  We will also be bringing the “shazam!” defib pads out for instant respawns in the field because we know how much you guys love them!

Josh will be handling the game briefings again at this one as Doug is off to look after the 24hr MilSim game “Descent” at the MAW.  It’s fully booked and looking to be an epic event once again.
Due to the incredible popularity of last month’s Dark Zone game – we’re going to run it again this month.  If you missed out last month, now is the time to get involved!

We will also be running a “Who Ate All the Pies?” weekend at Eversley this year – the ever popular annual post-xmas workout session from Tuddenham will also be getting a woodland vibe on 30th & 31st December.

Regards,

Josh Smith

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Once again, we had a great time at Tuddenham for our end of month skirmish weekend.  The Halloween night game was very well supported – thanks to everyone who took part – the next night game is now open for bookings and will see players fighting over objectives while Alien & Predator fight each other over separate objectives.

Although their mission is totally different to the players’ one, they will be scrapping in the same area and will not hesitate to engage if they feel threatened!

This weekend we have our first open weekend at the awesome Huntley Wood site in Staffordshire.  Players will be fighting to detonate or defuse timed explosive charges in the style of Battlefield’s Rush games.  Bandages will be used for field respawns as well as having fixed spawn points, we will also be bringing back the hilarious fun of the “shazam” defib packs for instant respawns in the field!

More details for this event below…

Next weekend we are back at Tuddenham, where we will be doing the same thing again.  With limited ammo, bandages, defib packs and explosives, what’s not to love!  Get booking…

Regards,

Josh Smith

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 43 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Thanks to everyone who joined us at Eversley over the weekend – it was another huge event.  See you all at the next one in a month.

This weekend we return to Tuddenham for another epic skirmish open event and night game.  The night game is a special themed Halloween one with players investigating the disappearance of a special forces team sent in to investigate an explosion at a secret research facility.  Non-combatants who want to shuffle around in the dark dressed as zombie special forces/researchers/doctors etc are also welcome free of charge so get the word out if you have any of “those kind” of friends…

Next weekend we have the first of our monthly FilmSim open weekends at our new site in Staffordshire.  The Huntley Wood site is huge and we will be running a Battlefield Rush style weekend with players fighting to detonate or defuse timed explosive devices at key locations throughout the weekend.  ONLY BIO BBs are allowed on this site.  We will have 0.2 and 0.25g bio BBs for sale on the opening weekend and will build the range for future games.

Regards,

Josh Smith


Website Update

In the past week we have updated the website to a new booking system which is designed to be more user friendly on mobile phones.  It has meant a redesign of the entire site and we will be gradually adding more sections and information over the coming weeks.  All future events are viewable on the calendar (event types are now colour coded to help on smaller screens) and bookable.

All existing bookings will remain valid, although you will be unable to view details or print tickets.  We will have a list of tickets sold with us at each event, so don’t worry if you don’t have a ticket to show us – just quote the name it was booked under and we will have you on our list.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 42 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had a huge turnout at Tuddenham at the weekend, thanks to everyone who came along and joined in.  We were running a game based on the Dark Zone from Tom Clancy’s The Division game, which meant there was quite a bit of game mechanics to get through at the briefing – everybody listened and took it all in, thank you so much for your patience.  We will continue to try and have themes and a bit of role-play involved on the mid-month FilmSim open weekends, and keep the simple stuff for the end of month skirmish weekend.

As for the game itself – the three groups of agents started off doing their own thing, before realising that co-operation would be a better tactic.  The first extraction was a little tense, with all three teams just wanting to get some resources banked, so everybody played nice.  After that however, one of the teams decided to go down the rogue route and yank another team’s bag out of the extraction zone at the last second.  Their faces when they realised that the teams weren’t going to change in the afternoon were an absolute picture – actions have consequences!

Regards,

Josh Smith


Division Dark Zone at Eversley

This weekend we are doing it all again at our awesome site at Eversley.  Will you join the cleaners & Last Man Battalion in their effort to retain the resources, or will you join an agency and fight to extract the most resources for your team?  Will you play nice and help the other agencies, or will your desire to win get the better of you, leaving you to resort to underhand tactics?  The choice is totally down to you.

Eversley Sniper Ban Lifted

The annual sniper ban at Eversley has now been lifted for the winter, as the ferns have died back enough to allow their use.

Please note that any sniper rifles exceeding 1.3J (350fps with a 0.2g BB) will need to be backed up with another weapon for use under the minimum engagement distance.

Skirmish at Tuddenham

Next weekend we are back at Tuddenham for our monthly skirmish open event.  Please make sure you book rental equipment before next Thursday so we can ensure we have sufficient sets with us.  Any spare equipment will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis on the day – book to avoid disappointment!  We have restocked the shop as well, and we now have a sandwich van come down at lunchtime to give you a better variety of food.

Haloween Night Game at Tuddenham – Sat 28th October

It’s also time for our annual Halloween night game!  Organised by the guys at Team Green Airsoft, this promises to be an immersive zombie experience.  To ensure we give you a high-quality experience, numbers will be limited and need to be secured in advance by booking on the website.  We WILL be turning people away if we have too many turn up without booking.  We are accepting crew and extras for this event – if you’re not bothered about playing but want to dress up and add to the atmosphere, then get in touch with Team Green.  I know several of you have friends who enjoy playing zombies, and we’d love to have a load shuffling around in the background to add extra atmosphere and immersion without them having to be involved in actual combat.

First Game at Huntley Wood in Staffordshire

Just a reminder that we have our first game coming up at our new site in Staffordshire.  We will be running monthly open FilmSim weekends at the awesome Huntley Wood venue near Stoke with the first game being November 4th & 5th.

The first event will be a Battlefield Rush themed event using bandage rules and will see the return of the instant regen “shazam” defib pads as well as the usual timed explosives.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 41 2017

Here is al the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We have two events coming up this weekend:

At Tuddenham, it’s a FilmSim style open weekend with a Division video game theme.  Players will battle it out over resources, with agents trying to extract them from the dark zone and cleaners/LMB trying to prevent them from doing so.

At Eversley it’s a themed FilmSim event based in the Middle East in the 1990s.  There are a few tickets available for this event remaining – please note, this event has kit requirements and is not a casual open day style event.

Next weekend we’re back at Eversley for our monthly open weekend – all are welcome and rental kit is available – please book in advance to avoid disappointment.  The Summer has drawn to a close and we will be assessing whether it is safe to allow high powered sniper rifles.  Keep your eyes open on the Facebook page for an update once we’ve had a look this weekend.

Regards,

Josh Smith


Under 18 Consent Forms

Please remember that all under 18s must now bring a completed consent form with them to each game, and 12&13 year olds must have a named adult remain on site to be responsible for their well-being throughout the day.  This is to comply with our insurance company’s requirements.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 40 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

What a weekend!  We had a huge amount of players on both days at Tuddenham, and the sportsmanship was excellent from veteran and new players alike.  Thank you so much, the team have just about recovered – you destroyed us…

This weekend we are taking a well deserved break – if you need your airsoft fix this weekend, the guys from Team Green Airsoft are running a weekend at Tuddenham – please contact them for availability.

Next weekend, we are back at Tuddenham for a Division video game themed weekend.  This time we’re hitting the dark zone, with several teams of agents trying to extract valuable resources from the clutches of the cleaners.  We highly encourage costume and roleplay for these games, so feel free to dress up as Division agents (think PMC loadouts) or cleaners (civvy or orange boiler suits!)  Flamethrowers optional…

The weekend after that, we’ll be doing a similar thing at Eversley, so get your kit prepped for another awesome weekend there.

Regards,

Josh Smith


New site in Staffordshire

Don’t forget that we will be having our first game at Huntley wood in Staffordshire on 4th & 5th November.  Camping is available free of charge and we will have a small shop on site.  Please note that this site is BIO BBs ONLY.  We will have some for sale, but you are welcome to bring your own for use in your own guns.

UNDER 18s CONSENT FORMS

We now require all under 18s to bring a consent form with them, signed by a parent or guardian.  These can be downloaded from our website and filled out in advance.  Due to our insurance, our policy on unaccompanied minors has also changed.

Players aged 12 & 13 MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult all day, who must be named on the consent form.  The accompanying adult does not have to play, but will remain responsible for the minor’s wellbeing for the day.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 39 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Huge thanks to everyone who was able to help out at Tuddenham this weekend, sadly the stag do which we were expecting on the Sunday turned up on the Saturday, so we ended up running games both days instead of doing much work.  Still we got a bit of work done, and had two really great days of airsoft as well, so we’re going to chalk that one up as a win…
This weekend is, of course, end of the month, so it’s skirmish time again at Tuddenham.  With gameplay taking place in the wood/scrub areas as well as the CQB village, there’s plenty of variety and the opportunity for loads of fun.
Don’t forget that we also have a night game on Saturday, run by the guys from Team Green Airsoft, and this time featuring a “Saw” theme.  With mind bending puzzles mixed in with airsoft combat, this is not one for the faint-hearted…

Regards,

Josh Smith


Halloween Night Game

Next month, we have a “Dead Rising” Halloween special night game run by the awesome Team Green Airsoft.  Tickets for this are very limited and must be booked in advance via the website.

“Following an explosion at a Top Secret Military Base all communications have been lost with the facility. A special operations team had been sent to the area but have also failed to report back.
Locals have been providing us with reports and rumours that a new type of chemical weapon was being tested within the facility.  We have also been receiving reports of unhuman moaning and groaning noises coming from within the grounds of the facility.
You must enter the facility to assess and deal with the situation”

Tickets now on sale for Staffordshire

Ticket sales are now also open for the first game at our new site in Staffordshire near Stoke, the first weekend of November.

The site is huge and consists of a very varied terrain.  We will be running FilmSim style open weekends there regularly using the limited ammo & bandage ruleset, come and give it a try.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Our FilmSim open weekend at Eversley was very well attended once again – huge thanks to everyone who came along and made it another excellent weekend of airsoft and laughs.  Our next one is 21st & 22nd October – see you all then!

This weekend we have our special themed event based in the Congo in the 1970s – there are still some tickets available, see the website or contact Josh for details.

We will also be doing some clear up work at Tuddenham on Saturday around the CQB area, mostly to shift the debris from where some of the internal walls have been kicked in and have a check on the safety of the wooden structures.  If you can help us out, it would be most appreciated.  We will be around from 0900 and will have free tea & coffee available all day.  You don’t have to stick around for ages, even popping by to sweep out one building will be a huge help.  Anyone helping out will be given a game credit to be used by the end of October.

We have an unpublished game at Tuddenham on Sunday and are open it up for some extra players.  Gameplay will be mostly around the CQB area and will be short, skirmish style games.  We will have BBs and gas etc on site, but won’t have a full shop available.  Obviously, anyone helping us on Saturday is welcome to use their game credit on the Sunday.

We will be back at Tuddenham next weekend for our usual end of month skirmish event.

Regards,

Josh Smith


unnamed (18)New Gunman Site Opening!

We have just taken on a new site in Staffordshire and will be running regular FilmSim open weekends on the first weekend every month, beginning in November.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Once again, we had an awesome weekend at Tuddenham and welcomed back themed FilmSim open days with an “El Chapo” cartel theme.  If you are interested in a theme and a bit of role-play, keep your eyes open for the next event’s theme to be announced.  You don’t have to get involved with the theme and role-playing, but we can assure you it’s way more fun…

This weekend sees us back at our awesome Eversley site with another themed FilmSim open weekend.  This one is based in the future, so if you have any futuristic loadouts (I’m looking at the Gruntz players here) then bring them along.  Don’t worry if you haven’t – anything will be just fine and we may have a couple of sets of loan kit if you fancy playing along.

Next weekend we have a special themed event set in the Congo in the 70s.  There are still several places open for this, have a look at the event on Facebook for full details if you’re interested.

It’s another five weekend month, so the End of month skirmish at Tuddenham will be on 30th Sep and 1st Oct.

Regards,

Josh Smith

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Apologies for any delay in answering enquiries over the past week while Josh and Doug had some time off.  I think we’ve caught up now!
This weekend we are at Tuddenham for a FilmSim open event.  You’ve been asking for themes to return for our FilmSim events at Tuddenham, so this weekend we proudly present the return of “El Chapo”.  His associates must try and break him and his lieutenants out of prison.
Next week’s Eversley is set in 2037 and sees the armies of the Red Drake and Blue Hammer battling it out for supremacy over key points.  Who will dominate the region?  Only you can decide…

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)
