The Steel Helmet.

M35, M40 and M42 helmets are are great for this impression. Then to top it off, apply mud and add a rubber inner tube band for foliage.

Primary Weapon.

This soldier is armed with the Karabiner 98 Kurtz, or Kar98k, as his primary weapon. We encourage all of you to use bolt action rifles as it enhances gameplay.

Wool Enlisted Mans Tunic.

The M42 wool Tunic is worn with Service Shirt underneath. This is very common with early to mid war. It is not rare to find a wool tunic like this in 1945.
(Note the neckerchief to stop the collar from rubbing.

Belt & Kit.

As you can see the soldier is wearing standard rifleman kit. important items here for eating, hydration and, should it rain, waterproofing.

Wool Enlisted Mans Trousers.

The Wool M40 Trousers are being worn here. This is very common throughout the entire war.


Here you can see that the soldier is wearing Jackboots. Ankle Boots and gaiters become more common later in the war, however, Jackboots can be seen right up until 1945.

What about a sidearm?

If you limit your rifles to under 370fps / 1.27j you wont need a side arm, and this will allow you to storm enemy positions up close an personal. A rubber bayonet is far more effective than your rifle at such close quarters.

Can I use Officer kit? ?
We would NOT recommend coming to an event as an Officer or NCO. These roles are reserved for crew and people in command appointments.
