If you want a big group, hit up SBG. They have armor, schrecks, mortars, paks...act act act.

If MW/EW is your game I'd suggest Das Reich (also if you have a fetish for Zeltbahns :) )

We are primarily SS, a mish mash of Leibstandarte,Das Reich and Non Assigned.
We however this year are going to make some tunics to depict the Nordland SS unit, main reason is being able to use alternate insignia ( no runes ) as many shows , certainly in the North do not allow any SS runes.
For most of these shows we dress in Heer uniforms ( saves being asked to leave,as has happened ) yet in Bury on the East Lancs doo this year I was asked to leave even thpugh I was a Panzer Hauptmann uniform :-(

Some gigs are home front and should be avoided by anyone in Third Reich uniform as a matter of courtesy.
If a show says "No SS" the group I'm in generally wouldn't attend, but have a Heer alternate jacket so we can partake in scenarios that wouldn't have W-SS due to historical accuracy, such as opposing beach landings etc.

We choose "Das Reich" because no one at that time was portraying the unit.

I seem to remember some W-SS types with piercings, bad haircuts, tattoos and mismatched gear pitching up at Levisham a couple of years ago. (Sent them packing :D )
These guys were from the North West. Not sure what group they were from though (NWMC?), so that might be even another W-SS group out there.....
