It looks pretty fun to do, how often do you get to climb over ruined buildings firing blanks at the germans.

There seem to be some cameras around, even professional ones. Would love any footage of them.

As for the above question, I guess people do this cause it's fun. What wrong is there to it? You can easily divert the question as to why people play paintball, and then why people play war (video)games. Or even competitive games like football which split you into 2 opposing teams...

Very cute. Nothing says "Stalingrad" like perfectly clean uniforms and brand new gear

and fat soldiers. But the brand new gear annoys me at events like this. I used to do Viking re enactment and always tried to show the lived in look in my gear.

Those are awesome, Russian reenactments seem to be much crazier than others, then take it all out.

Cute!

I don't think that we need new topic for other reenactment events so there is small footage of IS-2 the almighty on the move.

Czołg IS 2. Bitwa o Poznań 2014. Tank IS 2. Battle of Poznan. - YouTube



It was filmed this year during reconstution of battle of Poznan (aka Festung Posen). You can skipp the Polish comments and watch this beautiful beast
