the Driver (Tucker) gets around in a Union Army Kepi and has a couple of Springfield Rifled Muskets strapped to the side of the HMMWV, he also has also got a couple of Kepi made up in UCP.


I've also got a couple of other players interested in joining, they have characters one is a Pre-Med student that had the war brake out in her first term so she went enlisted medic, and the other is the missing loader who's first term turned out to be his War term.

Nice to see some people are still playing the game. I presume you are starting from the Kalisz scenario; what vehicle(s) will they have?

If it's an M1, I did that with a group once, I assume you know they will be spending a lot of time down for fuel-brewing.

Sir Brad May 23rd, 2015 09:54 PM

Just one fully restored HWMMV with Gunshield and trailer, the characters I have in game ATM started with Last Battle and have done Kalisz, though they have pushed hard to get back to Germany, heading away from Krakow, even with the two and a half full tanks of fuel they have after their last raid they are too far away to believably find the first encounter.

they have gone through all there NATO ammo, the Polish character is regretting his decision to take a karabinek wz. 1996 Mini-Beryl over an older AK series weapon (though he did buy one of them to), they have burnt through thousands of 5.56N rounds, all the .50 cal, 40mm and 9mmP and LAW's. Gerek is using his AKMS and everyone else has picked up Eastern Block weapons for themselves but nothing for the turret, and they are burning through Ex-Pact ammo almost as fast as they can loot it. Hell Tucker is out of Powder and Shot.

the other two characters I'm yet to drop in are in a Deuce and a Half.

Ok the others

PFC Emmi Duke B.Sc (Hon.) (Medicine), 487th Evac-Hospital currently attached to 3rd Armor Detachment, 5th Infantry Division (Mechanized), US XI Corps German 3rd Army

Emmi did her Collage Diploma at UC Berkeley before going on to do a double degree in in Bio-Medical Science and Pre-Med Science at MIT, between her diploma and her degree she spent a year in Europe at the start of the war as an aid worker with American Aid Abroad in Germany working with German and Polish refugees. she was in the last undergraduate class before the collapse of the American higher education system. She volunteered for FEMA service but was redirected to the army and sent to the European theater

Putraack May 30th, 2015 01:02 PM

Cool, I've not had a group head back to Germany directly. Someday, I'd like to see one stop-over in Krakow and then head east, using the rivers.

Looted ammo, yep, that's going to happen sooner or later.
