OK, I'm pretty sure I'll be able to make this one, one way or the other. Apart from darts, arse kicking attitude and myself, do you need me to bring anything?

I tend to find the roof of my mouth is more at risk than my eyes. Of course, I have my BOLLE tactical glasses and all my actual dart storage and firing equipment. Razz

If it's not included as part of your 'Arse kicking attitude' . . . Bring your Game!!

On a serious note. I think we are okay, thanks for the offer.

Serving as a bumpity bump, seeing as we are under a week away, and the thread has been a little quiet.  Doesn't help that I'm ill and have been hiding in a dark room for the last 2 weeks - I'm still not right, but well enough to type.

Also, we've discussed the possibility of using shields at our events. We are working on how best to incorporate them into our games, but if you want to bring any along, please feel free.  We will brief shield usage rules, depending on the game, on the day (or beforehand if we are organised enough).

I hate shields. They are largely gamebreaking inside.

Simplest shield rule: they block darts...

Better shield rules: no shield can fully cover your body, and must be able to be carried one handed. Shields are destroyed my demolisher missiles

Make sure they are foam edged, and see how many you get, if there's a lot, and it becomes an issue, form a proper rule for them

Thanks ON and BGUK.  If the play space doesn't allow it, or it is obviously going to put others at a disadvantage then we won't be using them.  But we've been asked, and if there is a way to do it and make it fair and fun, we'd like to try.

I'm thinking a limit of 1 shield carrier per team for most games, just to add a different dynamic.

Unfortunately I lost a bet today.... Wales vs England, 6 Nations game. Wales lost = me using a Deploy for 2 games at this war..... Oh my!! What have I done.

Edit - the bet was with Davera- and NN113 was also in on this bet and will have to join me in the Deploy usage

I agree if we use Shields we have 1 'tank' per team allowed to use a shield and mega darts break them. That way it's still fair and Shields won't change our games.

Hey! The Deploy is a fine piece of Nerf engineering. If I tag you with it, you must be really bad at Nerf and should take a long hard look at your place in this world+

Well I've been sticking IMRs in everything I can find, so I'm going to be flinging foam everywhere at BB6. Or burning motors out. Or both. I don't care, I'm excited!!!

L11: I feel your pain. I really thought we were on for the win today. Are you at least able to mod the Deploy? You could really soup it up and †have a cracking torch!

I kinda like the idea of shields, if they're nice and short; like 3ft tall max. That way it provides some form of mobile cover, but without giving that much body cover if you're carrying it in hand.

Proper room clearance, tactical momentum and shooting straight are better than shields at breaking deadlock.
Looks like my rocket launcher project might need revisiting then.

I've got my shield for use so will see about giving it a go on the field. I'll have to look at how to integrate it into my load out and get a RH holster since the damn thing sits on my left arm. :/ I need a new one...

Friendly note: LARP shields are bloody expensive (£120+) so if I growl if you get too close then you've been warned. Smile

Newport Nerfer and I were planning on doing  a few load out videos at Bb6, which will done either before, during the break or after. If you are interested come and find us on the day and we can shoot a quick video on your favourite Bristol Blast loading/gear. These will mainly be practice for Bb7 when we anticipate doing a few more!

I think Shields will be worth a try but I agree limiting it to one per team!

Think Bristol Blast 6 is going to be smaller than Bb7 but it's a good job because it's a smaller venue!

Ha. We thought the grim February weather would put people off coming, but far from it - we nearly maxed out again yesterday. Don't be surprised by how keen people are to fling foam!

If we get our usual numbers, it's going to be an interesting one in terms of play style. CQB, fast paced games I think are on the cards.

Happy to do a loadout video. I'll probably be running a few different ones dependent on the game types, and given I'm off to the surplus stores again today, who knows what I'll have with me next week!

I'm regards to shields, just saw Coop's recent CQB combo video where he had a shield made from a tote box lid and some gaffa tape. Looked fun to use without being too massive or obstructive.

I SHOULD be able to attend. I finally get to test my rig at something that isn't GuN of ZHoM and see how it fairs against Boff. Can we be expecting a CarrierII, or is he stuck making cookies or attempting to revive 3D printers?

It'll be just me, I'm afraid so you've not got too much to worry about. Razz Still pondering on how to integrate the shield properly...

It has been really nice to see how everyone's gear has evolved over the Bristol Blast games!

I have just emailed Vince as a reminder and all is still good to go ahead and we are now looking at April and May dates with both Vince and Darren Smile

I think we ought to alter the defend the Core game to the Hvz version we had intended to play at bb5.

If anyone has some loading video ideas send me a PM
