Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 5 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had a great turnout for the end of month at Tuddenham, thank you everybody.  The quality of play was once again very high.  We’ll see you all again next month.

This weekend we are back at our new Norfolk home at Top Dog Paintball’s site just outside of Norwich.  Please make sure you get your lunch orders in on the website before Friday if you want hot food.  If you haven’t sampled the new site yet, come down and try it out while it’s only £20 for a walk on.

The following weekend we return to Tuddenham for our mid-month FilmSim style weekend – with bandages in use as well as reduced ammo limits, this is a step towards higher realism, but still keeping plenty of action and a break for lunch.

We also have a Cold War themed event coming up on Feb 25th & 26th at our Eversley site.  If you’ve never tried one of these events before and you fancy trying something a bit different to normal airsoft days, get yourself booked on.  It’s a full weekend of role-play airsoft based in the outer Hebrides.  Pop to our website for more details on the event.

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 2 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

First of all, huge thanks to everyone who was able to help us out at Tuddenham on Saturday.  We had around 20 people turn up, and they put in a huge amount of work, getting all of the buildings swept out as well as a good deal of new cover installed in various places.  We were also able to clear all of the materials out of the safe zone in preparation for opening up more space for players’ kit.

We had a great day on Sunday at Norwich, but we still need to build the numbers up, so if you haven’t tried the awesome new site at Ringland, just outside of Norwich, then come and give it a go on Sunday 5th Feb.  It’s still only £20 walk on, or £15 with a valid loyalty voucher and has great facilities to boot.  Everyone who has been to the site loves it to bits, we just need more players to attend so we can start using more of the site.

This weekend we are back at Tuddenham for another FilmSim style weekend of airsoft.  Don’t forget, we are always on site from Friday evening, so if you fancy being brave and camping over, you’re welcome to stay the weekend.  The forecast is for snow this weekend, so get your snow camo ready!  Yes, we will still be running as normal, just make sure you wrap up warm and bring spare clothes.  As always, we have free tea and coffee on the go all weekend to help keep you warm and happy.

Next weekend we are back at Eversley for another epic FilmSim weekend.  The battle for the Iron Gates continues.  Full story on the Facebook event page.  Free camping for the weekend, catering on site, excellent social feel all round.

Regards,

Josh Smith

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 1 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

So 2017 is here and we have a great year of events lined up already, with loads more to add as the year goes on.

First of all, a request for your help at Tuddenham.  We will be on site all day this Saturday having a general clear up and attempting to build some new features if we can.  We need as much help as we can get, mainly moving rubble, rubbish and materials around site as well as having a good sweep out of the buildings.  We will also be doing some painting in the safe zone and some general tidying up in there.

Tea and coffee will be on the go all day, and any help is appreciated – even if you can only manage an hour, or to sweep out one building, don’t feel you have to be there all day!  Anyone helping out will be able to enjoy a free game at Tuddenham, Norwich or Eversley on any of our regular open days in January to say thanks.

The day after (Sunday 8th) we are putting on a FilmSim open day at our new Norwich home at Top Dog Paintball’s site at Ringland.  The site is based in undulating woodland and has loads of built features.  The safe zone facilities are excellent, with flushing toilets and a caterer.  Hot food options are available at lunchtime but MUST be ordered in advance via the events page on our website.

We’re still operating Norwich at the introductory price of £20 walk-on or £15 with a valid discount voucher, or come and help us out at Tuddenham the day before and enjoy it for free!  Either way, if you haven’t tried this excellent site, you’re missing out.  Come on down and join us.

The following week (14th & 15th) we are back at Tuddenham for another FilmSim weekend – with bandage based medic rules as well as limited ammo being carried, our long morning and afternoon scenarios are a step towards realism without giving up the fun aspect and that all important lunch break!

After that we have another awesome FilmSim weekend (21st & 22nd) at our superb site at Eversley.  With loads of interesting features dotted throughout the sprawling rhododendron and pine forest, this is a varied site with a superb bunch of regular players.

Regards,

Josh Smith


WWII Airsoft day

For those of you who are looking for something a little different we have a WWII themed event running next weekend (Sat 14th Jan).  It’s open to anyone aged 13+ and we have tonnes of uniforms you can borrow, as well as rifles to rent.  The day will consist of several short skirmishes and costs only £25 (secured with a £10 advance deposit) or £30 on the gate.

For more info on the WWII event or to book on, visit http://www.gunmanairsoft.co.uk/event_category/2ww-filmsim-airsoft/

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 52 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

What a great end to an awesome year!  We had record numbers at the “Who Ate all the Pies?” game and the gameplay was superb.  Huge thanks to everyone who supported us and made it such a great year.

So 2017 is rapidly approaching and we’re all set for it to be even bigger and better than 2016.  We have a few big things in the works which we will announce as soon as we can, we have also brought some of the more specialised airsoft events back to Gunman such as WWI, WWII, Vietnam, Cold War and modern Milsim with more to be introduced this year.

The special events will be run as advance ticket only events, with tickets available to purchase on www.gunmanairsoft.co.uk via the events calendar.  There are limited places available and some of them sell out very quickly, so keep your eyes open and don’t miss out.  For more information, have a look on the website.

Our first open walk-on event of the year is at our new Norwich site on Sunday 8th January.  The site at Top Dog Paintball, Ringland, just outside Norwich is huge and has loads of features across it.  We are running short, fast paced games at the moment to get familiar with the various areas of site and how they play, then we will be looking to put on longer scenarios, using the full site as soon as possible.

The facilities on site are excellent, with flushing toilets, a covered safe zone and a caterer.  Hot lunches must be ordered in advance via the event page as the food is bought in fresh to order.  For an introductory period we are running at £20 walk on or £15 with a valid loyalty voucher – come and try the site out.

We are also running a build/clearup day at our Tuddenham site on Saturday 7th January.  We will be on site all day and are looking to get as much done as possible.  Tasks will involve sweeping out the buildings, making some of the crumbling walls safe, clearing up rubble/obstacles in between the buildings, building more areas of cover etc.  We will also be doing some work in the safe zone such as painting, moving materials out and building benches etc.

We need as much help as we can get and in return, we can offer free tea and coffee all day as well as a free day’s airsoft at any of our open days in January.  Obviously there is also the satisfaction of helping make your favourite site a better place to play at as well.

Stay safe over New Year’s, and we’ll see you on the other side…

Regards,

Josh Smith

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 51 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Another great weekend at Eversley – everyone really got involved with the story and silly costumes were the order of the day.  Thanks to all who came and supported the weekend.

So this weekend is Christmas (in case you weren’t already aware…) so we won’t be running anything over the weekend.
We will be putting on a special one day skirmish on Tuesday 27th December, for our annual “Who Ate all the Pies?” event – a chance to burn off some of those excess calories you might have eaten over the weekend.  It’s a bank holiday and is already looking to be a huge event.  If you are lucky enough to get any new kit for Christmas, this is the perfect opportunity to come down and show it off.

The following weekend is New Year’s so again, we are not running.

We will be kicking off the new year’s gaming at our Norwich site on Sunday 8th January – please come and support us on the site – it’s an awesome chunk of woodland with a load of features, it also has excellent safe zone facilities with plumbed toilets and a caterer on site.  All hot food is bought fresh prior to cooking, so must be ordered via the event page on our website.

Enjoy your weekend, we’ll see you all soon.

Regards,

Josh Smith


Build/Clearup Day at Tuddenham

Build/clearup day:  We will be running a build/clearup day at Tuddenham on Saturday 7th January.  If you are free to help for a bit it would be much appreciated.  We will keep the tea and coffee running all day, and everyone attending will be given a free game at any of our standard open days during January.

We are looking for people to help sweep out the buildings, continue using materials to build more cover, clear up rubbish, paint and build in the safe zone etc.  Any help is appreciated – if all you can manage is coming along and sweeping a building out then you’ve still been a massive help.  We will be on site all day, if you can just pop in for an hour or two, your help will be very much appreciated.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 50 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Another excellent weekend at Tuddenham.  Numbers were lower than usual, but the sportsmanship and play level was totally top notch.  All the players got stuck in and ran around with silly hats and costumes on, and everyone had a great time.  Thank you to everybody who came along and supported us.

This weekend we’re doing it all again at our Eversley site in Hampshire.  Fancy dress is optional but highly encouraged as the ELF try to sabotage Christmas and the SANTA forces battle to save it.  Please try and bring some fake presents so we can scatter them around and use them as objectives.

The following weekend is the Christmas weekend and we will be spending time with our families, so we don’t have a game on.  We will, however, be putting on our annual “Who Ate all the Pies?” skirmish silliness day at Tuddenham on Tuesday 27th December.  It’s a bank holiday, and we’re looking at a huge turnout so far.  Expect the most epic building clearance game ever!

Looking forward into the new year, we are not running anything on the first weekend as it’s new year’s eve/new year, but we will be kicking off the new year the following week at our Norwich site at Top Dog Paintball on Sunday 8th Jan.  If you haven’t tried the new site yet you’re really missing out – it’s absolutely huge and has plenty of feature areas which we can play around and in between.

We are still running Norwich at the reduced introductory price of £20 walk on (or £15 with a loyalty voucher) so it’s an excellent time to come and see what the site is like.  The facilities are second to none – we even have plumbed in toilets!  There is a caterer on site, but hot food must be pre-ordered via our events calendar page on the website as all meat and bread is bought fresh.

Regards,

Josh Smith

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 49 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had a great weekend at Norwich, despite the cold – thanks to all the guys who turned up and took part in the event.  Don’t forget to spread the word so we can start utilising more of the site at once – we’d really like to be able to run longer scenarios soon, but we will need big numbers to make it work properly.

This weekend we are running our annual “SANTA vs ELF” themed game at Tuddenham – fancy dress is optional but we really encourage everyone to engage with the silliness and come dressed as a santa or elf.  Also – can you bring some dummy presents with you as the more objectives we can put in the field, the more fun the game will be.

Next weekend, we’ll be doing the whole thing again at Eversley, once again, please bring dummy pressies to play with (or bring us real pressies of course!)  Silly costumes optional but highly recommended…

The weekend after that is Christmas weekend, so we won’t be running anything on the Saturday or Sunday.  We will be running a single skirmish day at Tuddenham on Tuesday 27th – our annual “Who Ate all the Pies?” skirmish event, giving you the chance to work off all those extra calories you may have tucked away over the weekend.  Both Josh and Doug intend to be there, as well as several other old skool Gunman members.  Expect silliness.

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 48 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had another awesome end of month weekend at Tuddenham with huge numbers once again on both days.  Once again, the general level of play was excellent.  Thanks again everyone.

This Sunday we are at our new Norwich home again, at Top Dog Paintball’s site.  Hot food is available at lunchtime but MUST be ordered in advance via the event page on our website.  We will be running short scenarios in the morning across the various areas of the site, and plan to run a longer game in the afternoon if numbers permit.

The following weekend we are back at Tuddenham for a FilmSim weekend, this time the evil ELF forces are back and trying to sabotage Christmas again. Expect much silliness and fancy dress is highly encouraged…

The weekend after we will be doing it all again at our excellent Eversley site, with the ELF forces managing to bring down Santa’s sleigh once again.

We won’t be running anything on the weekend of 24th & 25th, but we will be putting on our annual “Who Ate all the Pies?” skirmish day on Tuesday 27th December at Tuddenham to give you all a chance to work off all the extra calories you may have eaten over Christmas.  Both Josh and Doug are planning to be there, so come and take the opportunity to have a shoot at them for once…

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 47 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Another superb weekend at Eversley with a great turnout despite the weather on Sunday!  Huge thanks to everyone who came along and made it an excellent event once again.  See you all next month.

This weekend we are back at Tuddenham for our superb end of month skirmish event.  As always, we have lined up two days of action packed gaming including plenty of time in our awesome CQB area.  We have been hard at work adding more and more features to the site to keep you on your toes and will soon be clearing more space inside the safe zone building to allow more players to bring their kit inside over the winter months.

Next weekend we are back at our new Norwich site – we are planning some short, fast paced scenarios in the morning based in the various individual areas of site.  We are hoping to put on a multiple objective long afternoon scenario using a larger area, but this will really depend on the number of players on site.

Regards,

Josh Smith


Chrono Update

We have just taken delivery of a new chono which uses radar instead of the traditional optical “shoot through the hole” ones which we have been using.  The new unit is a lot more accurate, and is not susceptible to misting up or getting water and BB fragments inside like the old units.  Please be prepared to adjust your gun if necessary, particularly if it was reading close to the limits on the old units as this is a freshly calibrated, highly accurate unit.

Just a reminder that we chrono guns with whatever BBs you are using and compare the output to a chart (you can download the chart on our website).  This allows us to accurately measure the actual energy that your gun is firing at when you use it in game.

HOT FOOD AT NORWICH

If you want a cooked lunch at Norwich, you MUST order and pay for it in advance via our events calendar on the website.  There are two £5 lunch packages available – either a cheeseburger or a sausage bap as well as a regular soft drink and a chocolate bar or pack of crisps.

Rental Bookings

Our new advance inclusive rental package has been received very well so far.  If you book in advance via our website you get a bag of 3000 0.2g BBs included with your rental package for £55 per day or £90 per weekend (£50 per day at Norwich at the moment).

This price is only available in advance, saves you some money and means you don’t have to buy anything on the day (unless you do some serious hosing).  Any surplus BBs are yours to keep for next time.

2017 Dates & Events

Most of next year’s open weekend dates are now up on the website events calendar, more will follow once confirmed.  We will also be adding the ticketed Milsim/themed events in the next week or so – keep your eyes open!  Events should also be up on Facebook by the end of this week.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 45 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Our first official game at the new Norwich site was a resounding success, with around 20 players attending.  As the numbers grow, we will be able to use more and more areas of the site simultaneously and start putting on longer scenarios in the afternoon.  Massive thanks to everyone who supported us – we are back next month on Sunday 4th December.

Please remember that if you want a hot lunch, it must be booked in advance via the event page on our website.  We will be offering a lunch package for £5 which includes either a cheeseburger or sausage bun, a regular soft drink and crisps or chocolate.  Events will be posted in the next few days.

This weekend we are back at Tuddenham for the final part of our Division themed series of events.  It’s time to put an end to “Dog” Masters’ reign of violence in the area.  We will be using the FilmSim ruleset and coloured armbands for team ID.  Camping is free from Friday evening and we will have some film running on the Saturday night with a mini-social.

Please note that monthly night games are postponed for the time being as someone has flipped the winter switch – we will let you know when the next one is.

Next weekend we return to Eversley for “Ghost Recon” Part 3, the ghosts will be trying to disrupt transports and lay tracking devices in the depots.  Full catering on site and free camping from Friday night.

In other news, we have now replaced the aging portaloo at Tuddenham with two brand new ones.  Please respect the new facilities and only use them seated…

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 44 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had a huge turnout at Tuddenham this weekend with 85 players on Saturday alone!  The standard of play was absolutely excellent on both days, thank you all once again.

Please could everyone make sure that they book rental equipment in advance, as we had between 10 and 15 people turn up on Saturday wanting rentals on top of the 15 who had already pre-paid.  We managed to get everybody sorted with a gun in the end, but we would hate to have to turn people away due to lack of equipment.  Massive thanks to the players who rented their spare guns out to make sure no-one went home disappointed.

This Sunday we have our first proper game at our new Norwich home at Top Dog Paintball’s site.  This is an awesome woodland site and is huge – if we get the numbers, we can use large areas of the site to allow flanking and sneaking about.  It’s also sniper heaven!

The on-site caterer buys food in fresh, so please ensure you let us know in advance if you require a burger or sausage bun so we can ensure there’s enough supply without wastage.  The site has a covered safe zone as well as plumbed in toilets, so is suitable for just about anybody.  For the first few months the walk on has been reduced to £20 or £15 with a discount voucher.

Next weekend we are back at Tuddenham for the finale of our Division series of FilmSim games.  Come and help us put an end to the maniac “Dog” Masters’ rein of violence, or help him fight off the JTF and agents.  The outcome of the battle is down to you!

The following weekend we are back at Eversley for another Ghosts episode – this time the Ghosts are headed to Cuba to deal with cartel sympathisers and their transports.Description

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had a great weekend at Okto Eight, and introduced some new toys which will be airing at Gunman games soon…

This weekend is a special one at Tuddenham: in addition to the usual end of month skirmish madness that you’ve come to love, we are putting on a special night game on the Friday as well as some scary movies on Saturday night.

The game on the Friday night will kick off at 1900 and will be split into two parts: a survival run through the woods and various objectives in and around the buildings.  Costing only £15 (or £10 with a valid loyalty voucher), you don’t even need to bring any weapons with you – we’ve got it all covered.

Next weekend is our first proper game at our new Norwich home at Top Dog Paintball’s site at Ringland on Sunday 6th November.  Please come and support us, this is an excellent site with features such as a covered safe zone with flushing toilets as well as catering (please book food in advance).

The playing field is awesome, there are several different areas with features in place and we will be aiming to use the FilmSim ruleset if possible, depending on player numbers and experience.  For the first few months we will be offering a discounted walk on of £20 or £15 with a valid loyalty voucher, so this is an excellent opportunity to try the site out and introduce new players as well.

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 42 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Another great weekend at Eversley –many thanks to everyone who came down and played.  We’ll be back again next month – story to follow.

This weekend we will be hosting another Okto Eight Milsim event at the Hertfordshire site – we are still looking for crew members to help out on the weekend – this will involve some shooting this time as pretty much everyone is a combatant.

If you’re interested in helping crew get in touch – we don’t charge crew members and you get fed as well as having great fun.

Next weekend is the Halloween weekend and also end of month Skirmish at Tuddenham.  In addition to the usual skirmish fun we are putting on a special night game on the Friday night – a survival type game where players will be trying to pick their way past all the freaks/zombies/psychos/whatever in the dark to get to the (relative) safety of the buildings.  Once there, they will have several objectives to complete with very limited weapons available.

Everyone will be given the opportunity to play as survivors and freaks, freaky fancy dress is highly encouraged for everyone.  We will supply the majority of weapons although you are welcome to bring any melee weapons you may own (assuming they are LARP safe obviously).

Weapons and ammo will be in very limited supply – if you want to spray a load of plastic around then come and join us on Saturday or Sunday for our skirmish games.  We will be on site from Friday afternoon, camping is free all weekend.

Don’t forget that we will be playing the first of our regular monthly FilmSim games at the Top Dog Paintball site just outside Norwich on Sunday 6th November.  The site is huge and it would be a shame to have to use small areas at a time.  In order to run the kind of epic battles which the site is crying out for, we need plenty of players, so come and help us out and bring some friends too.

We are running at a reduced price of £20 walk on for the first few games to help encourage more people to try the site out – we will also be accepting loyalty vouchers for a £5 discount meaning you only pay £15 if you’ve played with us in the previous couple of weeks.

The site has excellent facilities, including plumbing, flushing toilets and catering, so is especially suitable to those people who like to keep a bit of comfort close by.  If you want catering, you need to let us know in advance as they buy their meat and bread in fresh.

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 41 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had a superb turnout at Tuddenham this weekend with nearly 100 people attending over both days.  Quality of play was up to the usual high standard, thanks again everyone.

This weekend we are at Eversley for the next part of our “Ghosts” series.  Don’t forget camping is free of charge from Friday evening and we have a caterer on site along with a social on the Saturday night.

The following weekend we will be hosting an Okto Eight Milsim game at Hertfordshire – if you’re not booked on and fancy coming and helping crew get in touch, crew roles will mainly be combat based for this one.

We will then be back at Tuddenham for the end of month skirmish event on 29th & 30th.  If you haven’t tried out our awesome Suffolk CQB site, then a skirmish weekend is the time to do it.  Camping is free from Friday evening and we will be watching some scary movies on Saturday night as well.

We will be running our annual Halloween frightfest on the Friday night (28th) this year.  The event is always hugely popular and will be a survival type game.  Split into two sections, players will try and navigate the woods and scrubland in the dark, either unarmed or with basic melee weapons if you have them in an effort to make it to the relative safety of the buildings in one piece.  Sounds easy, but there will be a selection of freaks, zombies, psychos etc trying to grab you and stop you.  Players will take turns being survivors and freaks.

The second scenario will be based around the buildings with several objectives to keep you busy such as holding a building or securing objectives.  There will be some weapons dotted around for you to use, but they will be very limited in ammo to make things tricky.

Fancy dress is highly recommended for this event, weapons will be provided for you, but you are welcome to bring your own melee weapons.  Please feel free to invite non-airsofters to the event as this will be more of a survival experience than an all out shooty fest.

Don’t forget that we will be at our new Norwich home on Sunday 6th November at Top Dog Paintball – Ringland.  The site is in a large wood and has many features we can play between.  There is a caterer on site, but food need to be pre-ordered as they buy it in fresh.Description

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We’re back at Tuddenham this weekend for another FilmSim style event based on the Division game.  The JTF and Division agents will be fighting the criminal Riker gang for control of the warehouse district.  Multiple objectives will be issued over the weekend for both sides.

Camping is available free of charge from Friday night and we will be having a mini-social on Saturday night with movies etc.  There is a BBQ available on site, so bring some food to chuck on if you’re staying over.

Please note – there will be no night game this weekend as we are putting a special event on at end of month for Halloween (see below for details).

Next weekend we are back for another FilmSim weekend at Eversley – this one is a continuation of our Ghosts series.  As usual, free camping is available from Friday evening with a very social club feel to the weekend.  Full catering on site.

We will be running our epic end of month skirmish weekend at Tuddenham as usual with a social on the Saturday night – we are also putting on a special game on the Friday night which will be a survival style game played over the whole site.  Players will take turns being survivors or freaks/mutants/zombies/psychos/whatever, so try and make the effort and dress up if you can.

Regards,

Josh Smith
