This weekend will be using the FULL FilmSim rules, which will get posted to the event and included to the page files.
Factions:
The three factions will be identified in the field by coloured highlights to their loadouts. This means you can wear whatever camo or clothing you are comfortable with as long as it does not contain strong elements of a differing faction’s colour.
Suitable identification can be in the form of coloured armbands, hats/bandanas, shirts etc as long as it is obvious which faction you are attached to.

Each faction has a unique Special Ability for this operation as detailed below.

Red Faction of the Drakes MUST wear a RED element in their load-out and no other.
Special ability: “Tough as Nails” – Red Faction carry one extra bandage for this operation.

Blue Faction of the Hammers MUST wear a BLUE element in their load-out and no other.
Special Ability: “Quartermaster” – Blue Faction have an extra field pack available to them.

The Dark Faction MUST wear a PURPLE element in their load-out and no other.
Special Ability: “Sky Born” – Purple Faction can set up multiple drop points for airborne troops to land.

Be proud to represent your faction!
Units/Loadouts:
Each faction will consist of three types of unit. More detail about class roles can be found here.

This will be updated with some new mechanics before the event.
Players may choose whichever class they prefer, and are able to change their class during a game by returning to their HQ and re-equipping with their new loadout.
Recon
Recon units carry a bolt-action rifle with 100 rounds maximum and prefer to use stealth to carry out their orders.
Tactical
Tactical units carry 600 rounds maximum and work together in sections of up to eight persons. They prefer to stick together, plan out their operations in advance and keep close communication within their section.
Assault
Assault units carry 800 rounds maximum and have the use of a field pack for re-arming. Lightweight, hard hitting, fast and noisy, these Grunts have no fear in charging a target head-on.
Part payment deposits are Non-refundable, but the tickets can be sold on.
We will need to know the name of the new owner to update our booking information.

CAMPING is free and people can arrive from Friday morning at 10am to set up their camps. You are also welcome to stay Sunday night and leave on the Monday if you wish.

View story
In 2019 it began, a slide of power and a change of ‘The Global Game’ left Europe in turmoil. Communications between the old cold war allies broke down and tension built up to a boiling point.
Conflict finale broke out in 2027 after a 5-year stalemate.

Up to this point the aggression was played out in proxy small war conflicts, which engulfed those countries before an actual full engagement between the governments of the East and the West would seal the worlds fate.

The first shot was fired on New Years Eve 2031 across the Thin Line, a line drawn by the small war conflicts and their victors. 24 hours later a billion soldiers engage and over the next 69 years nearly burnt themselves to extinction.
The fighting went Global, with only the continent of the Americas and the Island nations of the Pacific Oceans untouched. Africa was allied to the Blue Hammers and Asia and the Middle East allied to the Red Hammers.

In 2100 the two sides came together at the Helsinki summit and agreed a final ceasefire.
Their world was unrecognizable and billions had perished and all the other summits had failed due to the inability to trust each other, but a new threat was coming, one that neither could fight on their own. Can they work together…?

For 19 years the peace has held and the populations of the Red and the Blue have once again swollen in numbers.
The world, though broken, has regrown back its vegetation and resembles an age from long ago with ruined cities engulfed in natures claim.
Two major capitol cities still remain as the seats of Government and society. Moscow is home to the Red Drakes and their huge underground capitol as well as a twin City in Beijing.
Madrid is home to the Blue Hammers and their sprawling super Metropolis City, the second City of the Blue Hammers is Rome with the whole of Old Italy now militarized like its ancient historic grandfather.

‘Airborne’

For the past 9 months, the war across Europa has claimed 1000s of lives and both the Blue Hammers and Red Drakes are feeling it. The Dark Faction has fully deployed and now seeks to find a resupply drop area.
A number of old and long forgotten airfields have become the primary target for a DF resupply but at this time the Drakes and Hammers are fighting over it.
The only way the Dark can get close enough to make an assault is through airborne units being dropped at secured locations. Five key areas have been identified for capture and control and there are three airfields.
If any faction controls 2 or more of the airfields by day two, they will have seized control of the landing ground. All three factions are looking for resupply to go forward into their next conflict (August).
