I was thinking of doing an SS impression but I think I'll use velcro for the different branch-specific insignia. Count me in as interested. Did you post something also on the WW2airsoft boards because I think I read something about it as well.

Guten tag! Ich heisse...heisse... I have to improve my german! :oops: Any reccomendations for a good language course? Did any of the Heer units use the type II oak camo? I ask because I got a reproduction paratrooper smock in that pattern-couldn't find a splinter one.

I'm sure it's possible but I couldn't find any evidence through my exhausting search (ie looking at http://www.deutschesoldaten.com/ for 30 seconds). I guess it'd be up to Herr Unionman, assuming that he'd be our gruppenf?hrer if we ever got together and played dress-up.

How strict do you want to get right away? This is about no. 2 or 3 on impressions I want to get done, I already have some (I think actually west german instead of east) jackboots along with some parade officer boots. I'm also going to get an AGM MP-40 but other then that I'm open to whatever people would like to do.

Count me in as interested.

I've just started putting together a Fallschirmjager impression...I'll have to make up my mind.

A line infantry impression is versatile and "correct" for more scenarios.
Yes. If history lessons depended soley on re-enactments, we'd be lead to believe World War Two was fought between mostly the Waffen SS and Paratroopers with spades on their helmets. :lol:

..which is why I was interested in a fallschirmjager impression. Sure there were a few in Band of Brothers, but it's a bit different than a seemingly "traditional" SS impression.

Erixon, have you checked out ww2airsoft.com? They have a lot of guys who do FJ impressions.

I really was thinking of trying to start a Waffen SS (I already have officer boots :oops: ) group but I'm really driven by the enthusiasm for a Heer group and don't mind slugging it out as a basic Soldat.

I with you on the feldgrau looking sharper than the camo of the SS. I'm still definitely interested in this. In the long run, I can put together both impressions, finances pending. :wink:

Well if by modern you mean WWII then yes, looks like the 17th SS in Il. is my only other choice, unless if I want to join the many different local U.S. teams around.

I think there might be enough interest to at least get a squad together but as for me there are some things I'd like to get to make a halfways decent US impression before I take the German plunge so it'll obviously take some time but I think the enthusiasm is there for a group. Right now it's kind of like the sparks before the fire starts to spread.

From what I saw of you last Ashtaroth, you had a pretty good impression going. Yes a small group would be nice.
