Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We had another awesome FilmSim weekend at Tuddenham with a great turnout.  We have also begun major improvement works on the site which have kicked off with a general tidy up and will see loads of work taking place across the whole site over the course of the year.

This weekend, we have another themed FilmSim open weekend at Eversley based around the drug cartels of South America, with a team of “Ghosts” looking to intercept drug deals.  Full details can be found on the Facebook event page.

Next weekend we are back at Tuddenham for another skirmish weekend – always popular, please book ahead if you require rental equipment to avoid disappointment.  Walk on spaces are still available on the day, but we will most likely be requiring players to pre-book as the numbers swell in the summer.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

This weekend we are back at Tuddenham for another FilmSim open weekend, this time we’re going with a Battlefield Conquest theme.  Teams will fight to control key points in the game zone, and the team with the longest total control at the end of the day is the winner!  With limited ammo loadouts and bandage based medic respawns, this is a slightly more realistic game without losing the fun and action of an open day.

Next weekend we are back at Eversley for the monthly FilmSim open weekend.  Keep your eyes peeled on the Facebook event page over the next few days for the theme.  With free camping from Friday evening, why not make a weekend of it?

The following weekend, it’s end of month, so we will be back at Tuddenham for our ever-popular skirmish weekend.  Lots of action, plenty of CQB time and a great atmosphere.  Come and get involved!

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 14 2018

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

Huge thanks to all the players and marshals who came to Tuddenham at the weekend – we had a huge turnout, and the sportsmanship and play was absolutely fantastic!  The large turnout on the Saturday has caused us to consider whether we will need to begin capping player numbers on our skirmish weekends as we enter the summer and require players to book on.

Josh and Doug will be discussing this over the next few weeks and we will advise you all of any changes via the newsletter & Facebook pages.  If/when we make booking mandatory for skirmish games you will have to secure your place by making a deposit on the website event page.  If there are spaces left they will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis on the day and we will have to turn people away if there are not sufficient spaces left.

We have always tried to accommodate non-booked walk-on players who turn up on the day as we would hate to disappoint people and turn them away if we can squeeze them into a game, however the simple fact is that Tuddenham can only support a finite number of players without compromising the awesome experience you have come to expect from us.

This weekend we have no airsoft events of our own, our partner Team Green Airsoft have a game at Tuddenham this weekend if you need your fix – please contact them directly if you are interested in their event – booking is required as their games are themed.

Next weekend we are back at Tuddenham for our mid-month FilmSim open event – this month we will be playing a game along the lines of Battlefield’s Conquest mode, with teams fighting for control of fixed points in the game zone, with timers to display who has controlled them longest.  Our FilmSim weekends use bandages to get you back in the game, limited ammo loadouts and scenarios which last the whole morning or afternoon allowing you to play the way you want.

The weekend after that we will be back at Eversley for another FilmSim open event – check the Facebook event page for further details, but expect another themed weekend with multiple objectives, long games, bandages and limited ammo as well as an excellent social feel.  Camping is free of charge from Friday evening as usual.

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

The Cold War Operations weekend at Tuddenham went really well, with the usual excellent quality of both airsoft and role-play.  Saturday night’s operation was moved to the pub due to popular demand…  Keep a look out for more themed operation weekends coming up at Tuddenham (not going to say what yet, but one of the next ones might be called “Operation TuddeNam” hehe…

This weekend we are back to normal at Tuddenham (if such a thing exists) with our ever-popular end of month skirmish event.  Featuring shorter scenarios, fast respawns and plenty of action in both the wood/scrub and CQB areas, this is not one to be missed.  Free tea & coffee all day, sandwich van at lunchtime, full shop on site.

Hi, Arnies,

Once again, we had another epic weekend at Eversley – thank you everyone!  We have another open FilmSim weekend next month – check the Facebook event page for details of the theme.

This weekend we have a special themed event lined up at Tudddenham – Cold War Operations.  There are still spaces available on the WARPAC side (Russian/East German) and we have free uniforms and weapon rentals available.  You do need to book – you can do either day or the whole weekend, there will be a night op on Saturday if we have enough players up for it.

Advance discounted bookings close at 1200 on Thursday 22nd.  Non-booked walk-on spaces on the day are subject to availability and are more expensive, so book now if you’re coming!

Next weekend is our usual end of month skirmish session at Tuddenham – come and get involved in fast-paced intense action games in our unique mix of woodland and CQB.  Please remember that DMR and sniper loadouts must include a secondary weapon for close engagements.  Games played in the CQB area are single-shot only – no full auto.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

Huge thanks to everyone who attended Tuddenham’s FilmSim event at the weekend.  Both days were excellent with a great quality of play.  Next month’s FilmSim weekend will be in the style of Battlefiled’s Conquest mode, with teams fighting for domination over key areas.

This weekend we are at Eversley for another FilmSim open weekend – it looks like being a busy one as well, so come and get involved!  It’s a ground war weekend, with teams being given objectives to be taken and held at various times over the day.  It’s totally up to you how you choose to tackle the objectives.  Don’t forget, camping is free from Friday evening if you fancy making a weekend of it now the weather is warming up again.

Next weekend we have an Operations weekend at Tuddenham based in the early 1980s Cold War.  Our Operations weekends are themed and have both camo and weapon requirements, we are currently looking for more players on the WARPAC side – think Russian or East German.  We have a load of East German DDR camo available for free loan for the weekend and have suitable rifles available for rental if needed.  Places need to be secured in advance by a deposit on the website – make sure you book a weapon if you need one as well.

After that it’s our usual end of month skirmish weekend at Tuddenham – always a popular event, there are no restrictions on camo or ammo limits – please be aware that we usually spend at least half of the day in the CQB area which is single shot only, so if you’re bringing an LMG please make sure you have a suitable CQB weapon.  DMR and snipers running over 350fps must always have a secondary weapon under the limit.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 10 2018

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

So, we have another glorious weekend of FilmSim airsoft for you at Tuddenham.  Our FilmSim open weekends are suitable for everyone and are designed to give you a different experience than you would get at a skirmish game.  Limited ammo may be carried, forcing defenders and attackers to do more than just throw plastic at each other – respawns in the field are achieved with bandages, encouraging role-play and bringing a more realistic feel.

This weekend has no specific theme – wear whatever you fancy!  We will try and plan scenarios which run for the whole morning or afternoon.  This does mean that the games are normally a slower pace than a skirmish and usually require teamwork to complete.  We still have rental sets available (must be booked on the website before Thursday mid-day) and plenty of walk-on spaces too.

Next weekend we have another exciting FilmSim open event at Eversley: “Ground War- Turning up the GASS” where teams are given a list of objectives which need to be taken and held at certain points during the day.  This gives players a huge freedom of how to play – will you head to an objective early and try to hold onto it, will you try and assault it at the last minute, or will you leave it altogether and concentrate on others?  It’s up to you how you tackle it.

The weekend after, we have a Cold War Operations weekend at Tuddenham.  We still have a lot of spaces on the WARPAC side, so if you fancy giving a Russian or East German loadout a go, get booking!  We have some uniforms for free loan as well as rental weapons available.

This is a special event which we haven’t done at Tuddenham in a long time and is a unique opportunity to play a Cold War game in a former Cold War nuclear ballistic missile site!

Places can be booked by deposit on our website at www.gunmanairsoft.co.uk.  Please don’t just turn up and expect there to be spaces on the day on your chosen team!

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 9 2018

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We had yet another awesome weekend at Tuddenham – thanks to everyone who came along and joined in.  We’ll be back for another skirmish weekend at the end of March.

This weekend we’re taking a break from airsoft, but if you need your fix, Team Green Airsoft are running a weekend at Tuddenham, they run smaller, themed games so booking is essential.

Next weekend we will be back at Tuddenham for our monthly FilmSim weekend – longer scenarios, multiple objectives, bandages to get back in the game as well as reduced ammo carrying capacity makes for a more realistic experience.

Don’t forget that we are also running a Cold War Operations weekend at Tuddenham later in March.  This is somewhere between an open FilmSim weekend and a full weekend event.  We have been running a Cold War series for several years now and have many regulars who make a full weekend of it.  This is a chance for anyone interested in the series to come along and have a go in small doses and see what it’s all about.

We have free loan uniforms for those who don’t have the right kit – we also have limited rental weapons.  You don’t have to have an SLR to take part – if you have a more modern weapon, then it does need to be disguised to help keep the immersion (rail systems and crane stocks on M4s can be covered with scrim for example)  the game is based in the early to mid 1980s, so try and go for a look from around that time.

We won’t be getting totally anal about kit if it’s your first time, but please bear in mind that this is a special, themed event, not an open walk on day.  As such if you turn up with MTPs and a pimped out M4 you will not be allowed to take part.  If in doubt, get in touch with us before the event.  Places will be limited and need to be secured with a deposit paid via the event on our website.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 8 2018

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We had another totally awesome Battlefield 2030 weekend at Eversley, with plenty of people dressing up in futuristic loadouts – thanks for a great weekend guys.

This weekend, we are back at Tuddenham for our end of month skirmish spectacular.  Two days of intense, short games in both the woodland and CQB areas of our unique Suffolk site.  Please don’t forget that you must have at least one weapon which is capable of single shots at under 1.13J (350fps) as we usually play at least half the day in the CQB area.  Snipers/DMR must always have a secondary on them in game for close encounters.

Just a reminder that we have a Cold War operations weekend lined up in March (24th & 25th).  Following a similar structure to our open FilmSim weekends, operations will usually last around two to three hours with a break in fighting for lunch and a shutdown overnight.  We have loads of period uniforms for free loan as well as weapons for rental – please don’t turn up with an MTP loadout and a pimped out M4 and expect to play with it.

We are reasonably flexible for first timers (soldier 95 DPM, M4 with rails and crane stock scrimmed up etc) but this is not a “turn up in anything” type open day – we’re looking for a bit of immersion in the early 1980’s.  If you’re unsure about kit, drop us an email and we’ll happily advise.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We had another awesome Division themed game at Tuddenham at the weekend, with some fantastic gameplay once again and some epic moments at the extraction point!  We will run another one of these popular games later in the year – keep your eyes on the newsletter for more details.

This weekend we have another FilmSim weekend at Eversley – suitable for all levels of player and more than just a skirmish, this one is themed in 2037, so if you have a futuristic loadout, this is the time to use it!  Anyone can come and get involved though, just come along and enjoy the fight in whatever you fancy playing in.

The following weekend we are back at Tuddenham for our monthly skirmish weekend.  Short, fast paced games with simple objectives make this particularly suitable for beginners and casual airsofters.  Rentals available (please book via the website) and a sandwich van visits us at lunch time.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 6 2018

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

This week we have another Epic FilmSim open weekend lined up at Tuddenham.  By popular demand, we are revisiting a game inspired by Tom Clancy’s “The Division” game.  Agents will team up and attempt to extract as many materials from the dark zone as they can, whilst also competing with other agent teams to see who can get the most out.

For those interested in the story and the game mechanics, dress as agents and battle against the defending forces of Cleaners, LMB, Rikers and rioters as they try to hold on to the resources, as well as other agent teams if they (or you) decide to “go rogue” and fight each other!  For those not bothered about story and mechanics, don’t worry – you can play as defenders and simply deny the agents the opportunity to extract resources.

Next weekend we are at Eversley for another FilmSim open weekend there.  The story will be up on the Facebook event later this week for you.  Come and join us for a weekend of airsoft and social vibes, with free camping, an awesome site and friendly players.

The following weekend will be the usual skirmish madness at Tuddenham – two days of shorter scenarios and plenty of CQB action around the WWII era buildings.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 5 2018

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We had an outstanding weekend at Tuddenham!  Loads of players, and both days were marked by superb sportsmanship and playing quality.  Thank you so much to all the players for playing fairly and having the right attitude on the field.

Our next airsoft game is next weekend (10th &11th Feb) at Tuddenham, and will be a FilmSim open event, based on Tom Clancy’s “The Division” videogame.  Teams of agents will be trying to extract resources from the Dark Zone which will be defended by a mixture of Cleaners, LMB, Rikers and rioters.  The agents as a whole will be trying to extract at least 50% of the resource values available, as well as trying to extract more than the other teams.

The agent teams will have certain rules regarding how resources can be collected and carried, as well as having to safely extract the resources at a set point.  The resources are not safely banked until they have been fully extracted, and while the extraction process is taking place, they are very vulnerable to both enemies and the other agent teams.  If you’re not bothered about the game mechanics, then come and play as a defender, otherwise get your best agency loadout and make the choice to work with other agent teams, or go rogue!

The following weekend will be an open FilmSim event at Eversley – story details to follow on Facebook soon.

Don’t forget – Cold War is returning to Tuddenham in March – 24th &25th.  This is an operations weekend, so similar to how we run a FilmSim open weekend with short, 2-3 hr missions as opposed to a full weekend in character and is ideal for players who want to see what the Cold War scene has to offer.  Experienced players are welcome to set up camp in the field and remain in character over the weekend as well.  We have loads of period camo for both sides available to borrow for free, and we have limited quantities of period rental rifles available as well.  Weapons must either be true to period (Early 1980s) or disguised enough so they don’t look out of place.

Just a reminder on open day timings:  We try as hard as possible to get you guys out of the safe zone as close to 1000 as we can manage.  Our safety and rules brief should begin at 0930 in order to allow us to achieve this.  We expect players to be FULLY ready to go at this time – we open registration at 0800 to allow plenty of time for signing in, kitting up and chrono.  We expect players to take as much responsibility as possible in helping here – if we are still chasing people around the car park at 0940 then we are never going to get you out in the field on time.  We also expect you to be ready at the time given after lunch.  The majority of players who are ready on time get very frustrated at waiting around for those who need chasing up, and we end up getting moaned at by everybody when we get you out in the field late.  Please help us to give you the maximum play time by being as organised as you can.

Hi Arnies Airsoft news,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We had an awesome turnout at Eversley over the weekend, huge thanks to everyone who came along and joined in an amazing weekend.  See you again next month for another open FilmSim weekend.

This weekend we have our usual monthly skirmish open event on at Tuddenham.  Shorter games, no ammo limits, loads of fast respawns – this is pure airsoft action at its finest!  With play taking place across both the wood/scrub as well as our awesome CQB area, come and enjoy a unique airsoft experience.  We have free tea & coffee available all weekend and a sandwich van at lunchtimes, we have also just had a major restock of AEGs in our on-site shop.

We still have a few weekend tickets left for Axis players on our WWII operations weekend (10th & 11th Feb at Eversley).  We have plenty of free loan uniforms available as well as suitable rental rifles if needed.  If you’re interested in a WWII experience but lack the kit, this is the ideal way to get started without having to shell out a load of cash to see if you like it.

Cold War is coming back to Tuddenham!  We are running a Cold War Operations weekend in March (24th & 25th) at our Tuddenham site.  With options for single days or both days, free loan uniforms and period rifles available for hire, this is an excellent way to get started in the Cold War scene.

Our Cold War weekends are very role-play with a story running throughout, this particular weekend will be structured very much like an open FilmSim weekend, with 2-3 hour operations at a time rather than the usual full weekend live-in experience.  For those who want to do a full weekend live-in character, that will be available as well as the more casual option.  We have a very well established Cold War story and player base and are hoping this weekend will introduce new players to the scene as well.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Massive thanks to everyone who came to Tuddenham at the weekend – we had an excellent couple of days and Sunday’s play in particular was outstanding!

Next month’s FilmSim weekend at Tuddenham (10th & 11th Feb) will be a Division themed event, with agents teaming up and fighting to recover various resources from the dark zone.  Teams of agents are also competing against each other, so they may co-operate or stab each other in the back!

This weekend we have a FilmSim weekend at Eversley “Operation Poison” with agents fighting against various hunter syndicates who are poaching rare eggs for sale to the Mendoza Cartel.  It’s going to be a cold one, so wrap up warm – if we’re really lucky we might even get some snow!

Next weekend will be another skirmish event at Tuddenham, featuring shorter scenarios and plenty of time in the CQB area along with a full airsoft shop on site.

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 2 2018

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We have another FilmSim weekend lined up for you at Tuddenham. For those of you who want more from your airsoft experience than just a basic skirmish, we use bandages to get you back in the game, longer scenarios and reduced ammo capacities to add a little more realism without going “full MilSim”.

Running Saturday and Sunday, you can do a single day or both, camping is free all weekend and we also have a cabin if you just want to bring a camp cot or blow up bed.

Next weekend we return to Eversley for another epic FilmSim experience – free camping, caterer on site and a huge site with loads of features. Keep your eyes peeled for the story to follow.

Regards,

Josh Smith


Division game next month!

We’ve had a lot of people ask when we are putting on our next Division themed event, so next month’s FilmSim weekend at Tuddenham will be another Dark Zone weekend with players fighting as agents to extract valuable resources, or as LMB/cleaners to prevent this happening. More details will be up on the Facebook event soon.
