Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 33 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had yet another weekend of excellent gameplay at Tuddenham at the FilmSim open.  The next FilmSim weekend at Tuddenham is on Sep 9th & 10th – we will be bringing themed weekends back to Tuddenham again, so keep checking the Facebook event or forums for details.

This weekend we are at Eversley for a Bad Company Rush themed weekend – simple objective based airsoft centring around MCOM timed explosives.  This is a very simple game premise and is full of fast paced action!

The following weekend we have two events running: the awesome Gunman Innovations International Weekender near Watford and our usual skirmish weekend of insanity at Tuddenham.

The skirmish weekend will be based on the Battlefield Rush gameplay, with players trying to arm/disarm timed explosive units.  There is also a night game on Saturday run by Team Green – the main Tuddenham Purge event.  For those not playing, we will be having a social in the safe zone, BBQ, beers, and maybe even a movie or two on the big screen.

For the MilSim lovers, don’t forget to get booking onto BRT MilSim’s awesome Red Storm Part 2 event at Norwich next month.

Gameplay will simulate special forces conducting deniable operations behind enemy lines and will run non-stop from Saturday morning through until an epic deciding battle on Sunday morning.

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We have two awesome events running this weekend – “Operation Greenbelt” – the first of our 1990s “Black Gold” Middle East FilmSim series at Eversley, and a FilmSim style open weekend at Tuddenham.

The FilmSim open weekend at Tuddenham uses a ruleset with bandage based respawns, limited ammo loadouts and encourages role-play style gaming.  The scenarios last a whole morning or afternoon and haver multiple objectives across a large area, giving players the opportunity to perform ambushes and sneaky flanking manoeuvres not normally possible on shorter skirmish games.  All levels of player are welcome and rental equipment is available if required.

Next weekend we have a Battlefield style weekend at Eversley – featuring rush style gameplay using timed explosive devices and using our FilmSim ruleset, this is an action-packed weekend of airsoft.  With free camping, a mini-social on Saturday night and a caterer on site, come and make a weekend out of it.

Regards,

Josh Smith


Red Storm 2 MilSim – Sep 16th &17th

For those of you who want an experience of special forces style realism, we have a MilSim event booked in Norfolk next month (Sep 16th &17th) which will see three factions (NATO SF, Russian Spetsnaz and ex-SF Mercenaries) conducting clandestine operations in Ukraine, with an emphasis on avoiding detection and contact in preparation for a final battle.

Players will live in the field for the duration of the operation and sentries are expected to be operating at camps overnight.  For more info, check out the event page on our website and Facebook.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

After a really busy week, and a massively enjoyable weekend’s gaming at Tuddenham, we are back into our regular routine.  We had a huge turnout once again at Tuddenham with plenty of new airsofters and first time visitors to our site, and again, everyone really got on board with excellent sportsmanship throughout.  Thanks for making it another superb weekend!

This weekend we are taking a well deserved break and will return next weekend at Tuddenham for another FilmSim weekend.  With longer scenarios, multiple objectives and more realistic rules (bandages and limited ammo), this is a more immersive experience than basic skirmish, without going “full MilSim”.  As usual, camping is free of charge from Friday evening, and we have a mini social on the Saturday night.

We have a couple of full MilSim events coming up for those who want full immersion:  in September, Red Storm Part 2 “Behind the Scene” will be at Norwich on 16th & 17th.  In November, Part 3 of our Descent:24 series “Hidden Enemy”.  Bookings and payments for both of these events must be made via www.gunmanairsoft.co.uk

Regards,

Josh Smith


Red Storm 2: “Behind the Scene”

Years after Vladimir Rogozin (FSB high rank officer) was captured on the front line and imprisoned by Ukrainian SF, Russia still claims he was a retired officer not representing Russian’s interests in Ukraine. On 30th of May 2017 unknown group of highly skilled operatives assaulted the camp Rogozin was kept captive. After the operation lasting less than 15 minutes they all disappeared without a trace.

On 24th of August 2017 the Zone “NPWD” (Nuclear Plant Waste Disposal facility) was attacked by, what is suspected, the exactly same group and 250kg of highly radioactive waste disappeared. UN and NATO was informed. The hunt for missing materials begins…

There is minimum engagement planned between the sides, all of them focusing on completing their primary objectives. There is a lot of focus on the “solider” life. “Dying” will have it’s consequences. Players shouldn’t expect to regen / respawn immediately. Sometimes it might take several hours for the player to be allowed back into field again so making sure “no one is left behind” and using medic rules which are designed to keep players alive as long as the whole squad plays smart is the key to success.

Descent 3: “Hidden Enemy”

The Russian invasion of the UK is fully underway.

This story takes us away from the first two instalments set in Epping Forest relocates the story to an abandoned and disused military asset just outside Melton Mowbray in the midlands. This UK forces area has become a main link to other resistance cells dotted all over the region and if discovered will be a vital target for the Russian units operating in the area as the resistance is very organized.

Two days ago a small Russian recce team came across the compound by chance and observed a number civilian vehicles entering the area riding low and then leaving clearly lighter. At this point the Russians have no idea what is being moved there but its been decided the area is now a priority target and forces are moving in. Caution is however paramount, as the enemy is very cunning and on their own soil.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We’ve had a very busy week, hence the late update.  Josh will be at the War and Peace show on Saturday, so drop by and say hello if you’re there.

This weekend is end of month, so it’s skirmish time at Tuddenham again.  Apart from the usual fun during the day, we are planning a BBQ on Saturday night, and maybe a movie or two on the big screen.  Bring food and beers…

Team Green are also putting on a night game for us on Saturday – there are still a few places available if you want to come down on the night – they will cost £15 on the night.  This one is The Tuddenhma Purge warmup.  The main Purge event will be on next month’s skirmish weekend and tickets will be £10 in advance or £15 on the night (event will be posted up on Wednesday and opened for bookings.

Normal service (whatever that is!) will be resumed next week…

Regards,

Josh Smith

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Our next game will be the awesome end of month skirmish madness at Tuddenham – don’t forget it’s next weekend though as this month has an extra weekend in it.  Sat 29th and Sun 30th will see two action packed days of airsoft, as well as an exciting night game on the Saturday.

We’re also at the War & Peace Show all of next week.  If you’re there, come and look us up for a chat.  Better yet, bring us biscuits or sweets

The Tuddenham Annual Purge

Saturday 29th July 2017 – 1900

Team Green present the Annual Tuddenham Purge:

Once again, it’s time for the Tuddenham Annual Purge.

Purgers from Uptown, Downtown & Eastside are once again expected to descend upon the Village to take part in the Purge and cleanse their souls.

Will you choose to keep your families safe and try to sit it out, or will you choose to go and Purge?

The choice is yours, however as events unfold, will you have a change of heart as the place you live and the people you love are attacked?

BRT MilSim at Norwich – September 2017

Although we are no longer running regular open events at Norwich, we will still be using the excellent Top Dog Paintball site for special events.  We have an event planned for September 16th & 17th.  We’re just finalising the story and full details which we will publish shortly, but thought we’d give you a quick teaser to whet your appetite.

The weekend will be a full MilSim lasting roughly 24hrs.  The gameplay will be heavily biased towards special forces recon style play, with detection and combat being highly undesirable for most of the game – if a fireteam is bounced, the emphasis will be on keeping your losses to a minimum, withdrawing and disappearing as quickly as possible.  The idea is to simulate small forces operating behind enemy lines with no reinforcements, if you get seriously injured in combat or left behind, expect to spend several hours recovering, leaving your fireteam light-handed.

The game will continue overnight and players will be expected to remain in game the full time, although there will be no firing after dark to allow for eye-pro to be removed.  There will, of course, be night recon missions and camps are expected to have stags on watch.  The game will climax on Sunday morning with a battle, so make sure you save some ammo!

The story is based in Eastern Europe, modern day and teams will be identified by camo types.  Keep an eye on Facebook and this newsletter for more info if you’re interested.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Once again we had an outstandingly high quality of gameplay at Tuddenham over the weekend.  Huge thanks to everyone for joining in.  Don’t forget it’s a five weekend month, so we won’t be back for three weeks.

This weekend we have another awesome FilmSim open event lined up for you at our Eversley site in Hampshire.  Smugglers are using tunnels cut under the Serbian-Romanian border and it’s up to the team of Romanian special forces to track them down, seize the shipments and destroy the tunnels.

We will be at the War & Peace Show again this year on the last week of the month, as well as running the usual skirmish madness at Tuddenham for you.  If you’re at the show, come and look us up for a natter, otherwise we’ll see you at Tuddenham.

Regards,

Josh Smith

Straight Inta Compton – Gas & Spring special

We have a single day special event at Tuddenham on the bank holiday of the August weekend Monday 28th August.  Based in the gang turf wars of Compton, this gas and spring only day will see the Bloods and Crips trying to evade the LAPDs SWAT team while engaging in various criminal activities.  A 16+ specialist event, tickets are limited and can be bought on the website.

1990s Black Gold – "Operation GreenBelt"

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 27 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We’ve got another great FilmSim weekend lined up at Tuddenham for you.  If you like your airsoft more tactical than skirmish then this is for you.  The Scenarios generally last all morning and all afternoon, with a break for lunch in between and allow greater freedom of choice in how to tackle the objectives.  Have you always wanted to perform a sneaky flanking manoeuvre by sneaking through the weeds, only showing yourself at the last second, but never had the time to do it?  Then FilmSim games just might be what you’re looking for.

We use bandages to get back into the fight quickly – when you get shot, you fall down and call for help.  Players can only carry limited ammo supplies with them in the field as well, meaning attack and defence must be well thought out – use all your ammo and you will have to fall back to reload at your HQ.  If you want more realism and immersion than skirmish games can offer, but don’t fancy a full MilSim game, come and give our FilmSim weekend at Tuddenham a go.

Next weekend we have another epic FilmSim open weekend at our Eversley site, this time set on the Romania-Serbia border.  Intelligence units have become aware of smuggling tunnels under the border and have sent special forces units to find and destroy them.  With free camping all weekend and a caterer on site, come and get involved and make a weekend of it.  Full story on the Facebook event page.

Regards,

Josh Smith

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

This weekend we are having a well-deserved break from airsoft – we’ll see you all again next weekend at Tuddenham for our monthly FilmSim weekend.  Featuring longer scenarios, bandages to get you back in the field, limited ammo and multiple objectives, these games are designed to give more immersion and realism than a skirmish game without going “full MilSim”.

The following weekend we are back at Eversley for another themed FilmSim weekend – see the Facebook event page for details on the story.

Ticket sales are now also live for our August bank holiday gas & spring special event “Straight Inta Compton” themed in the gang wars between the Bloods & the Crips.  Tickets are limited and must be booked in advance to secure a place.  http://www.gunmanairsoft.co.uk/event/straight-inta-compton/

Upcoming MilSim at Norwich

We will be announcing a fully immersive MilSim weekend shortly based at our Norwich site on September 16th & 17th.  The game will be themed in modern day Eastern Europe and will involve several groups of special forces operatives as well as a group of separatists.  The emphasis will be on stealth and avoidance of detection for most of the weekend, with players heavily penalised if they are killed in action.  If detected, the special forces are expected to withdraw and regroup, patch up the wounded and move on rather than fight to the death.

There will be no break in game, although there will be a ceasefire in operation overnight.  There will be recon and subterfuge throughout the night however, so teams will be expected to have sentries and patrols in operation if not on specific missions.  The weekend is likely to culminate in a battle on Sunday, so there will be some shooty action, but for the most part it is more about stealth and survival.  Full details and story to follow soon.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We had a truly awesome weekend at Eversley with an outstanding quality of play from everyone on both days despite the heat.  Keep your eyes open for next month’s story which will be coming soon.

We had yet another great day at Norwich on Sunday as always, but we have made the decision to stop running open days on the site.  We were invited to run monthly airsoft open days at the truly excellent Top Dog Paintball site at Ringland around a year ago, but have sadly not been able to attract enough regular players to the site to make it viable to continue running open days there.

We’d like to thank very much all the marshals and players who have supported us there over the last year – every game there was brilliant and we never had any issues with gameplay at all.  We still have the site booked for a weekend MilSim event on September 16th & 17th and are planning to run further ticket-only events in the future as it’s such a great site.  Event details will be up soon – watch the Facebook page and website calendar.

This weekend looks like being another hot one and we’ve got an awesome weekend lined up for you at Tuddenham.  There’s the usual skirmish madness on both days, and you have the option of a night game with Team Green on Saturday night, or chilling in the safe zone with some movies and a BBQ.  Night game has limited places, so please book ahead, BBQ will be open to all (including non-airsofters) just bring something to chuck on it, some drinks and a chair.  Camping is available and free of charge as always.

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Another hot weekend at Tuddenham with almost flawless play all weekend.  Once again huge thanks to everyone who came and supported us.

This weekend we have two events on – the usual monthly open FilmSim weekend at Eversley as well as a FilmSim open day at Norwich on Sunday only.

The Eversley weekend is another in the GHOST series – this time the search is on for any intelligence pointing to the disappearance of several US Nationals linked to a sensitive international project in the region.

This Sunday we have an epic game on at Norwich – a morning of short scenarios, followed by an full afternoon operation using the whole site.  The 4×4 with GPMG should be in play this time – it’s all patched up and ready to rock!  Please book in advance if possible via the website to secure a discount.

Next weekend we are back at Tuddenham for the usual end of month Skirmish spectacular weekend.  There is a night game being run on Saturday by Team Green – limited places are available so please pre-book.  We will also be having a social with an open BBQ (bring meat etc) – we’re still short on chairs at the moment so bring camping chairs.  If there’s enough people, we might even put up the huge screen and watch some movies.  Social evening is free and open to anyone including non-airsofters.

We have now caught up with entering new players and renewals on the UKARA database.  Anyone experiencing issues with retailers please email us or call 07711 774461 and we’ll investigate.

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 23 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We’ve got a cracking weekend in store for you at Tuddenham with another FilmSim style open event.  With bandages, long scenarios and several objectives this offers more immersion and realism than a skirmish, without sacrificing the casual feel and the all-important lunch break.  We will be looking at bringing themes back to our mid-month FilmSim games soon, we would love it if people could get on board and make the effort to dress for a team if possible.

Next weekend we return to Eversley for a scenario set in the Japanese forests with ghost operators looking for intelligence regarding the disappearance of a large number of US nationals and others.  With the story developing as the weekend progresses, every player action will affect how events unfold.

We are also back at Norwich on Sunday 18th with another FilmSim open day at this excellent site.  Ticket price is £25 on the day and £20 if booked in advance or with a valid loyalty voucher.  Hot lunch packages can also be ordered in advance via the event page on our website.  We’re hoping to get the 4×4 with GPMG all fixed up this week, if so then it should be making an appearance at this event.

Regards,

Josh Smith



Gas & Spring Event

We’ve just announced a special on-off gas & spring event at Tuddenham on Bank Holiday Monday August 28th.  The game will be a themed one featuring the Bloods & Crips gangs from Compton LA and the LAPD.  Spaces are limited and will be available to players aged 16 and over.  Limited rental guns are available for this event.

Ticket sales will go live next Wednesday on the event page on our website http://www.gunmanairsoft.co.uk/event/straight-inta-compton/ and are first-come-first-served only.  There are plenty of spaces for gang members (we have paisley bandanas for ID) but we are only releasing six LAPD spaces.

UKARA

The new UKARA database system is up and running (finally) and we will be going through all the renewals and new entries from the last couple of months and ensuring they are on the system.  This is likely to take us a couple of days, so please bear with us while we get it done.  There will undoubtedly be several teething problems over the next week or two – if you get any weird emails then let us know so we can help them with any debugging that needs doing.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

What an awesome weekend!  Apart from a five-minute downpour at the start of Saturday, the weather was really hot.  Sportsmanship and general play was excellent over both days thanks for a great weekend everyone!

Please remember there is no game at Norwich this weekend – this month’s game will be on Sunday 18th June instead.  All advance ticket sales will be at the discounted rate of £20 (the same as if you present a valid regular’s voucher on the day).  Hot lunch packages are available for £5 booked in advance.

Next weekend we are back at Tuddenham for our mid-month FilmSim weekend – two-hour scenarios with limited ammo and bandage-based respawns and the ability to choose how you tackle objectives gives you plenty of freedom and the option to play at a slower pace than a skirmish.

Regards,

Josh Smith


Night games

We will be running monthly night games at Tuddenham for the foreseeable future.  The games will be on the Saturday night on every end of month skirmish and will be run by the Team Green guys.

Numbers will be capped at 30 per event to ensure a high quality of game – tickets are £10 if bought in advance via the website or £15 if paid on the day.  Some of these events will have special themes, see the website of Facebook event pages for details.
