Soldiers in our Company will gradually accumulate lots of "gear" while they develop their impression. You don't need to know anything about this to start with. We will help you acquire what you need, developing your impression over time. The most affordable method is attending Reenacting events and buying used items from people selling their extra equipment. Our Quartermaster Sargent has all the gear to outfit you as an Infantry Soldier. If you love it as much as we do, you will start to gradually accumulate your gear on your own.

How do you know when to "die" in a battle?
Reasons to "die" in a battle
You have run out of ammunition and don't know what else to do
You just feel like it
You are tired and want to stop
You spy a nice soft patch of grass or really nice patch of shade and
decide to take advantage of it
Your Commander tells you its time to take a hit
You are supposed to lose and the entire company decides to do a
suicide charge and get it over with
Always look before you fall, ant beds, cactus and cow pies are bad places to "die". Trust me on this...
That is probably the most asked question . The answer is there really is not a right or wrong time. Its all part of the fun. Sometimes you "die" several times in a battle, sometimes, not at all. Generally, the ultimate outcome of a battle is decided in advance. If you are on the side that is supposed to lose that day, then you will either die, surrender or run away by the end of the battle. You really don't have to worry about it, your Company Commander will let you know what to do. If they want to start losing, they will ask some folks to "take some hits".
