Looking forward to this.  Unfortunately I'll have to leave by about 4pm but at least I get to attend for most of the event. Thinking of bringing the Rotofury for a Mega loadout (if I can summon up the courage to tackle the spring upgrade).

Would I be able to rock up at 15:00 (at the break) as my wife works weekend, and my kids are all too young to play yet. So half an afternoon is much easier to accommodate than late morning to early evening.
If it is possible I wouldn't be able to confirm till a few days before.

TheDon808 - play doesn't start until 1300, safety briefing is normally about 1250, and it's recommended you turn up at 1230 to get stocked up - not sure where you got the early morning bit from Smile

Play finishes between 4.30 and 5pm allowing the team enough time to clean up the venue before packing up and leaving.

I can't see an issue with coming along halfway through as long as you sign in and pay the entry fee (never had someone actively want to turn up halfway through, so have no policy on pro rata entry fees... yet).  The only real issue is we tend to break around 3pm, so play wont start again until 3.20 ish, so you won't get much time to play.  I wouldn't want you to miss out because you think you need to turn up in the morning or anything like that.

With NP113 and L11 both being out of action, I suppose I should lend a hand. Smile


Since I am pretty much a 'free man' in mid April with the kids visiting the outlaws with the wife I will also be completely free to help out as need be for the whole day. I would be more than happy to lend a hand learn the ropes and all the rest especially if you are short handed!

I live nearby and have C-Max beast on hand for people/kit too

I know itís a few weekends off yet, but damn Iím getting excited! Got 100 white waffle tips ready, new tacticool kit thanks to the folks at Blastersmiths, and some new blasters to try out.

Iíve definitely got enough stuff to do separate Elite and Rival load out videos this time too, and Iíll try and actually look like I know what Iím talking about this time. As an aside, if anyone is going to shoot loadout vids how about having a few set questions to ask, so thereís a set format/people donít choke on camera by not knowing what to talk about (will start a new thread about this topic in a mo).

Having spoken to my friends it looks like theyíre keen to come along after their first war at BB7 (some have definitely caught the Nerf bug big time). So hopefully thereíll be a few of us travelling down from around the Gloucester area.

If I can get there early enough I'm more than happy to help out in any way I can.

The event is getting close now and I'm super excited but don't have long to prep as I am currently on holiday abroad!

I am hoping to chuck some K26 into the rival blasters of I can find any!

And I'm looking forward to trying out the artimis!

I'm rather upset I'm going to miss this one....

I'm sure you will all miss my lovely Welsh voice as I hand my games master duties onto UKFoam with Boff's support Razz

Have fun guys I'll look forward to the footage.

I wouldn't bother. Recently watched Captain Xaviers "will it take a K26" episode on Rivals, and it made very little difference as they've all got such high spring loads andyway. I'm not saying it shouldn't be done, mind you...

Start getting those batteries charged! An splash do bring any of your modded loaders as we won't have Davera the Armourer this time!

I've got a load of stuff for sale in the Trading section. If you want anything pm and I'll bring it along!

Batteries are on charge as Iím planning on bringing the yellow ĎHornetí Stryfe for its first ever outing (will have to Chrono it first but I think itíll be ok). I even found time to cram a new spring into the Rotofury today so that might be getting a first outing as well.

Not sure if anyone is interested, but Iíve just gutted a Stampede for the shell and have the complete plunger tube, gearbox, intact loom etc., free to a good home.  Iíll bring it along tomorrow if anyone is interested.

Finally, I was debating bringing the camera along to film some gameplay. Are there any restrictions, policies or guidelines about filming or publishing footage?

See you all tomorrowÖ

Clockwork Wino - there are no restrictions, allot of people bring cameras and record the war.

I'm a bit gutted I'm not going to be able to see the Hornet in person.

Enjoy tomorrow guys.

Right, I'm packed and ready to go. I think. I'm going to dive back into post-GC intel processing so I might be a bit out of it tomorrow... Razz

I have the Firefly helmet camera and remembered to pack the SD card this time. I even charged it!
