Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Doug is still on holiday for the next week, meaning Josh is still running all of the Gunman stuff in addition to his usual admin, so please bear with us if it takes a little longer than usual to respond to your enquiries.

This weekend we are back at Eversley for an Easter special game – see the Facebook event page for details of the story.

After that it’s the end of month weekend, and we’re looking to make it a spectacular one!  Not only will we have the usual skirmish madness on the Saturday and Sunday, but we are also running our first night game of the year on Saturday night, as well as a special gas and spring only day on the bank holiday Monday!  We will also have the BBQ on the go on both the Saturday and Sunday evenings as well as the big screen on for movies.

Regards,

Josh Smith


Night Game At Tuddenham

We have decided to get the guys from Team Green in to run night games this year so that Doug can concentrate on the BBQ and movies.  They have been running some excellent themed weekends at Tuddenham now for several months and we can guarantee that you’ll love their prop-heavy games.

Night games will be £10 if paid in advance via the website or £15 on the day.  Numbers will be limited, so make sure you book early.

Gas & Spring Only CQB day at Tuddenham

On the bank holiday, Monday 1st May we will be putting on a one-off gas and spring only day at Tuddenham.  Numbers will be limited to 30 players maximum and will cost £15 if bought in advance via the website.  Any spare spaces on the day will cost £25 or £20 with a valid discount voucher.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had another awesome weekend at Tuddenham with incredibly hot weather for April.  Quality of play was once again at a high standard from everyone.

This weekend we are taking a break from airsoft.  Doug is also on holiday for the next two weeks, meaning Josh will be running all of the Gunman stuff in addition to his usual admin, so please bear with us if it takes a little longer than usual to respond to your enquiries.

Next weekend we are back at Eversley for an Easter special game – see the Facebook event page for details of the story.

After that it’s the end of month weekend, and we’re looking to make it a spectacular one!  Not only will we have the usual skirmish madness on the Saturday and Sunday, but we are also running our first night game of the year on Saturday night, as well as a special gas and spring only day on the bank holiday Monday!  We will also have the BBQ on the go on both the Saturday and Sunday evenings as well as the big screen on for movies.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 14 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had another great weekend’s airsofting; the WWII open day at Eversley was well supported and the long afternoon game at Norwich was a firm favourite.  The plan for next month at Norwich is to have the 4×4 with GPMG in use as well.

This weekend we are at Tuddenham for another awesome FilmSim game.  We’ve had a lot of rentals booked for this weekend, so if you or anyone you know will need a rental gun, please make sure that they book in advance on the website to avoid disappointment.

The next game after that will be at Eversley on 22nd & 23rd and will be a FilmSim special Easter episode!  See the Facebook event page for details…

If you’re interested in something a little different, why not have a look at our WWI experience at the end of May?  We have plenty of uniforms available for loan, and several bolt action rifles for rental.  This is not Battlefield 1, so there won’t be loads of full auto weapons fielded – bolt action rifles, shotguns and melee weapons will be the main armaments.  The game is taking place at the awesome MAW site (Midlands Action Wargames), bookings via the event page on our website http://www.gunmanairsoft.co.uk/event/wwi-raging-empires-part-2-flames-of-war/

Regards,

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 13 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had another well attended weekend at Tuddenham, with an excellent quality of play all round once again.  April is a five weekend month, so we’ll be back for another skirmish weekend on 29th & 30th.  See you all again then.

This weekend we have two events running this weekend – a WWII open day at Eversley on the Saturday and a FilmSim open day at Norwich on the Sunday.

The WWII event still has British & US places available, all the German & Italian places are now sold out.  We have a ton of free loan uniforms available as well as period weapons for rental, so come and get involved!

The open day at Norwich is at Top Dog Paintball’s site, which is a varied woodland terrain with loads of man-made features.  We will be playing short scenarios in the morning and a full afternoon scenario using the whole site.  Lunches are available but must be pre-ordered via the event page on our website.

Next weekend we have an open FilmSim style weekend at Tuddenham – come and play either day or make a weekend of it and camp over.  Long scenarios, multiple objectives and bandage based respawns are what these games are all about.

We will be starting up night gaming at Tuddenham soon – keep your eyes open for the details.

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 12 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had a huge turnout at Eversley at the weekend, thank you so much to everyone who came along and got involved.  Don’t forget we’ve got part 3 of our Division themed series next month.

This weekend is another skirmish spectacular at our Flagship site at Tuddenham.  Featuring short, fast paced games with fast respawns and no ammo limits, the scenarios are great fun and suitable for beginners and old hands alike.  With free camping on site from the Friday night, why not stop down and make a weekend of it now that the nights are warming up?

The following weekend we are back at our new Norwich site on the Sunday for a day of FilmSim style airsoft.  The morning will consist of short scenarios in the various areas of the site giving players a good chance to explore the site and get used to the features, the afternoon will be a two-hour long scenario with multiple objectives and the choice to be sneaky or dynamic in how you tackle them.  This is the last event which we will be running at the promotional price of £20 walk on, from May onwards the price will return to £25.

Regards,

Josh Smith

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 11 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Once again, we had an excellent weekend of gameplay at Tuddenham, despite the soggy weather on Sunday.  Thanks again to everyone who came along and made it such a great event.

This weekend we are back at Eversley for part 2 of our Division themed series of games.  The JTF & Division Agents will once again be battling against the gang of escaped convicts from Riker’s Island prison for control of the area – come along and join in the adventure.  With free camping for the weekend and a caterer on site, make the most of the weekend with us.

The following weekend, we have two events running:  the usual end of month skirmish at Tuddenham as well as part two of our 24hr fully immersive modern MilSim event at our Eversley site.  We still have a few Russian places available for Descent, with free loan uniforms as well as rental AKs available if you don’t have the right kit but want to get involved.

We will be on site at Tuddenham from Friday evening as usual and camping is free.  If enough people are interested we will also put some movies on the big screen on Saturday night.

If you haven’t tried our new Norwich site yet, then get yourselves down on Sunday April 2nd.  We are planning short games in the morning using different areas of the site, and a long afternoon scenario using the whole site with multiple objectives and freedom to choose how you tackle them.  There is a caterer on site, but hot food must be pre-ordered via the event page on the website as he buys all the meat and bread in fresh.

Regards,

Josh Smith


BB Pricing

Just over a year ago we were able to drop the price of our Geoff’s Precision BBs.  Since then we have had a couple of price increases (I’m not going to mention the B* word…), which we have absorbed.  Unfortunately we have been informed of a further price increase on the next delivery of BBs and we have no choice but to increase the prices back up to the old levels of £10 for 0.2g and £15 for 0.25g.  We still feel that these are some of the best BBs in the market and still offer great value at these prices, we are also looking to expand the range of Geoff’s Precision BBs.

We will also be adding Nuprol’s new RZR BBs to our range, after several problems with the last few batches of their old style BBs, they have changed factory and released the new range.  The ones we have had in for trial have been excellent and have given no issues in anything we’ve tried them in.  Keep your eyes open as we add them to the selection.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 10 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Welcome to Gunman Airsoft News

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Huge thanks to everyone who supported us at Norwich on Sunday, an excellent day once again.  Next month we are planning to run short, fast paced scenarios in the morning using several areas of the site, then a full two hour, slower paced afternoon scenario which will have several objectives and use the whole site, allowing players the freedom to choose how and when they tackle their missions.

This weekend, we are back at Tuddenham for our FilmSim style weekend – limited ammo, bandages and longer, slower paced scenarios for more realism.  We are also looking to start playing movies on Saturday night again for those who want to stay over.  Free camping is available for the whole weekend, and non-players are always welcome.

The following weekend we are back at Eversley for part two of our Division themed mini-series.  Play as either the JTF/Division agents or as the escaped convicts from Riker’s Island Prison and fight for domination.  Full details available on the Facebook event page.

Don’t forget that we still have a few Russian places available on our modern MilSim event “Descent: Part 2” at the end of the month.  This is a full 24hrs in the field with strict kit requirements for a fully immersive experience.  Want to play but don’t have the right kit?  We have AKs for rental at £25 as well as Russian uniforms for free loan at the event.

Bookings are also open for our next WWI and WWII events – see the website for details and booking information.

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 9 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had a fantastic weekend at Tuddenham with an excellent turnout both days and quality play all round.

This weekend we are back at our newest site in Ringland, just outside of Norwich at Top Dog Paintball’s site.  A huge woodland site, with loads of features to play around as well as excellent facilities – if you haven’t tried it yet, come along and give it a go.  We’re still running at the reduced price of £20 walk on or £15 with a discount voucher.  Hot lunches are available but must be ordered in advance via the event page on our website.

The following weekend we are back at Tuddenham again for another mid-month FilmSim event.  With bandages used for respawns as well as limited ammo loadouts and longer games, this is a step up from a skirmish event with role-playing encouraged for a more realistic feel.

The following weekend we return to Eversley for another Division themed game.  If you missed last month’s, then make sure you don’t miss this one!  Story on the Facebook event page.

We still have some spaces left on the Russian side for our 24hr fully immersive modern MilSim event “Descent Part 2” at the end of the month.  For more information see the website.

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
