this months issue (on sale Aug 30) has an account of the event and yours truly on the cover... personally i thought the shot of Evo and Bodie was better but it wasnt my call.

So if you want to see yourself in print. I've got no idea which shots were used inside but i'll be amazed if the one of Nel and Ben isnt.

I'm at work at the mo so can't google it properly yet but around where I live it's impossible to get. Can you please point me in the direction of how I can obtain copies of this delectable publication? ;)

Its in WHS Smtihs every month.

Regrettably the pic on Airsoft Actions facebook page has attracted a load of petty homophobic and stupid responses.... :(

Sorry you took one on the chin gadge but I wouldn't loose any sleep over it! Gunman love ya :wub:

Dear me! what is it with some people!

Airsoft is what you make it, whatever the theme, whatever the event. Closed minds and childish attitudes just reduce the fun.

I think the problem is so many peeps have no idea what Airsoft is and still play with the mind set that what they do is it. Also a few of the guys may have other reasons for behaving like that. Not sure they meant to be homophobic but they really didn't care about anyone's feelings. The comment of 'this is the Internet so live with it' attitude was typical of someone who new they were in the wrong and had no real excuse. As you say, a real shame.

The stupid commenters aren't people who are going to play anyway. Let them continue to be offensive 13 year old boys on the internet, while we all go back to playing "cowboys & indians for grown-ups".

This is a new kind of fusion game, and you always get detractors and neigh-sayers from both sides with such things - in this case airsofters who just want to shoot things and not play characters, and larpers who can't cope deal with actual shooting. I'm sure they'll have been similar issues with the re-enactment/airsoft crossovers various of you have been involved in.

Bang on. It's happened before, it'll happen again. These aren't the people who would be coming to this type of game, nor would we want them, tbh.

All I have to say is if they are so afraid of homosexuals may be they should stop attracting them by acting like complete cocks, pay them no mind they will soon slope off in their XXXL BDUs to try and intimidate some one else.

Corporal Hancock: Couldn't hurt, sir.

excellent, cheers for the kind words guys.

As i've said elsewhere i've got some really serious fmaily stuff going on and i'm very very ill at the moment myself (its an effort to keep playing tbh, i should be on incapaicty benefit but i want to work) and i was additonally at a low ebb that day as I found out my dogs got a very (minor) heart problem (but it still really upsrt me).

Normally i'd laugh this sort of stuff off. christ knows i've had homophobic bullshit all my life , every school i've evr ever taught in, at games workshop and loads just on nights out... the total irony that i'm straight and usually with my missus isnt lost on me but it does drag you down after a while.

If i *was* gay, you'd all fucking know about it trust me... i'd be like julian bloody clary. :)

Its just the bigotry from the 'mainstream' of the hobby i find staggering.

You did the right thing mate and not bother to reply any more. They have been jumped on now and to be fair they have made themselves look very silly. Cant wait to see the right up and more pics! We cant stop running top end events just because a few twits dont get it! Hope you and Evo can make FL.

get well soon Gadge. All the best dude ;) i really was shocked by what i read, but the lads are spot on. The small minded need not concern the like's of evolved folk like i.e 90% of the world's population. a small, slowly but surely fading breed of backward thinking morons. keep the chin high man there just jealous.. facto maximo..

The cover shot was really cool! All of the photos were really good, apart from the canteen shot - as all you can see is the back of my massive head.
Am really gutted, i was looking forward to being on the cover myself with my NCR loadout.
Maybe next time.

the one of evo, a really cool one of ben and nelly and some of the pit fight and the slavers in the wagon etc.
