Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 42 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

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

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

Regards,

Josh Smith


Division Dark Zone at Eversley

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

Eversley Sniper Ban Lifted

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

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

Skirmish at Tuddenham

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

Haloween Night Game at Tuddenham – Sat 28th October

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

First Game at Huntley Wood in Staffordshire

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

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

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 41 2017

Here is al the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We have two events coming up this weekend:

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

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

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

Regards,

Josh Smith


Under 18 Consent Forms

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

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 40 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

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

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

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

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

Regards,

Josh Smith


New site in Staffordshire

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

UNDER 18s CONSENT FORMS

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

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

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 39 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

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

Regards,

Josh Smith


Halloween Night Game

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

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

Tickets now on sale for Staffordshire

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

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

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 38 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

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

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

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

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

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

Regards,

Josh Smith


unnamed (18)New Gunman Site Opening!

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

The site is near to Stoke, Cheadle and Derby and is based in 170 acres of mixed woodland and scrub at Huntley Wood.  This is a huge and diverse site with some excellent facilities available, we will be playing different areas of the site each month and have the option to use the whole site for larger games as well.

The first game weekend will be 4th & 5th November – camping is available free of charge.  Come and join us if you’re able.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 37 2017

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

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

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

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

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

Regards,

Josh Smith

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

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

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

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.

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

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.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 31 2017

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.

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


August Big Weekender

We have our annual Gunman Innovations Airsoft Big Weekender on the last weekend of August.  An epi weekend of massive war, BBQ and beers, this is an event not to be missed.  With three factions battling it out and classes to suit every play style, visit the mini-site for more details at https://giairsoft.co.uk/

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"

Coming up in August is the first Event in our new series based in the fictional state of Suhud in the Middle East in the early 1990s.  After a military coup, there are rumours that the new government is trading oil to the Soviets for nuclear warheads.  With the UN being refused requests to inspect the Suhud’s military assets and intelligence suggesting that WMDs may be posing a threat to surrounding nations, NATO has decided to send a short and fast strike to find and disable any potential threats in the region.  12th & 13th August.  See website for more details and to book.

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
