Oh how I miss University and its June to October holidays. However, we have some really, really cool stuff coming out so it's worth not being able to put together a special rant... Smile


Very Happy 'holiday' dissertation , 3rd year project and a full society rebuild for me ....
OldNoob

EDIT

Topic split,because it deserves it's own little thread!

SSGT

Recovering from 8 exams in as many days *shudder* by finishing as many unfinished projects as possible.
rob.payne5236

I had a whole week of exams last week... But in the summer i am hoping to mod a RS and paint it properly.
OldNoob

I have to run about 10 games of Nerf or HvZ, then get made redundant and enjoy 3 weeks on holiday!
Then I have to find a new venue for all my games. Plus I might manage some surfing, bus rebuilding and a ton of spray jobs.
Good luck to those with exams!
rob.payne5236

Oldnoob ; what sort of places do you run games?
OldNoob

Currently in 3 leisure centres across south devon and at my town youth club. The youth club one I run for fun, the leisure centre ones are part of my job. I have 5 games in the next 4 weeks, including yours!
rob.payne5236

Lucky haha i only have around 1 or 2 games a month.
Franticblue

Work work and more work so I can marry my girl in CUBA YAHHOOO  hurry up November 😄
OldNoob

FB, sounds like you have great plans!
Franticblue

Yes I do hoping to make it a very special time for her she deserves it after putting up with me hehe.
OldNoob

I think that probably applies to all the partners/friends of regular posters! If I had been shot in the face with that Octoshot I would be demanding 1st class travel all the way.
rob.payne5236

Who doesn't shoot girlfriends,wives with Nerf blasters? Its an urge and sometimes ends in a Nerf war
Seiryuu

I would never.
Anyone else and their dog is fair game though.
rob.payne5236

Haha but i used to always get shot whilst sleeping soo kinda deserved it back.

I leave all my blasters hidden and my stash of LiFEPO4s hidden somewhere else to avoid anyone grabbing my RS or Stampede Very Happy

I also have a signed form saying that I will not shoot Freshers at Freshers Fayre.... Considering ill have a Sharked RS and 2 Stampedes on me thats pretty wise!!!

Me. I'm not brave enough to shoot my OH. She's northern and scary, just ask CarrierII. Smile

As for my summer holiday, what holiday? I'm currently there and still operating the company by remote.
oukie

With all this talk of weddings and honeymoons,
I should mention the reason for me being a bit quieter on the forum is due to

Me tying the knot (literally, had hand fasting in a 12th century castle)
Then went off to Malta for some fun.
OldNoob

Congratulations Oukie! Ceremony sounds about as Celtic as you could be. As well as clearly highly personal and romantic.
rob.payne5236

So i am the only one brave or stupid enough to? Kinda explains why im single now .
OldNoob

There's a life lesson right there somewhere!

That just means that you haven't found the right one yet. When you live in fear of your OH, you know you've found "the one".

It's so true!
Seiryuu

That really all depends on you but I do suspect that, for anyone intent on shooting their wife on a regular basis, said other half had better be the sort to fire back and instil respect.
Franticblue

Congrats oukie
Hey let's get this straight I did not shoot her in the face, my sin was much worse I left a modded blaster loaded and primed in reach of the kids in her eyes much worse than if I had pulled the trigger myself lol.
OldNoob

Yeah, that's definitely worse. You simply can't pin that on the kids (I would have tried pretty hard myself) and there us no easy get out. Going to Cuba sounds like a pretty spectacular way of making it all up to her though.
Who else has some special summer stuff planned?
rob.payne5236

Haha i did live in fear, i hid in a cupboard for 2 years... But all the shooting in the face never actully lead to an argument...Umm i mean a "calm discussion" in their eyes.

Who leaves blasters primed? It not good for them, let alone the mrs.

Thanks, not really as traditional as sounds,
we mixed it up with a very modern approach and traditional, a bit of fun really
Like for instance we had a symphonic version of Embrace the Endless Ocean,
by Swede death metal band Amon Amarth, as the entrance and exit music in the chapel.
Malta was just so good were gonna go back.[/list]

It's not related to The Winchester Razz nooope.
rob.payne5236

Is the project a flywheel blaster fed red paintballs?

No flywheels here sir. Everyone is going completely down the wrong route with this Very Happy (Boff and UKNW do not reveal what it is please)
SSGT

So it's not actually a blaster as such? My only other guess that sort of fits would be a cricket bat. Razz

LARP safe LPs would be pretty cool though.

As cool as that would honestly be its not a LARP safe cricket bat. All I will say is that it will be an absolute mess in a good way

I know many a person that could make that happen. If you want, I can put you in touch with some of them.
OldNoob



Plus



Plus



= LARP Lp?
MarcusH

LOL Very Happy LARPsafe kitchen would be amusing... have cleavers and all kinds of things (obviously you cannot use that in public for obvious reasons)
Boff

It's already been done. There are dozens of examples around the internet. If you wanted to learn latex casting and the like, summer is a good time to manage it.

Sneaky hint - I will have my special project at BAGW hopefully Razz lets just say the blaster won't be a shock to anyone but how it will look is very interesting.
Boff

On topic, my 'summer' 'holiday' (those are in inverted commas for separate reasons) is being spent here in the North East with my in-laws, occupying their dining table with my development notebooks, my laptop and Kindle plotting the next push from BSUK.

Apparently, I'm supposed to be taking time off or something but it's pissing down here and there's not a lot else to do. Smile

Time off is highly over-rated in this job.

I'm supposedly 'finished' for the term but instead of going outside am sitting here with a mind map open and just chucking ideas for Freshers at it. (not literally) seeing as I have a Societies Forum to go to tomorrow! I swear if i stare at the university calendar much more I will go mental.
OldNoob

You need to be watching some vintage SCAD HvZ and the best HvZ trailer ever, "The Dead Menace" worth watching the whole of the HvZ just for Vulcans and Magstrikes as top primaries, plus a world of pre Stampede stuff and cool mission ideas. Daft SCAD zombie speeches aside, kept me well occupied when I should have been working yesterday! Linky
I am going on my exotic foreign tour of the Isle of Wight this summer.
Boff

Daft or not, these should be mandatory viewing for all HvZ organisers. They are flat out incredible and ought to form the backbone of your thinking on how to run HvZ. These guys did it brilliantly and it's proof that it's the people that make the game, not the blasters.

Armour research is proceeding apace though I'm getting funny looks as to why I've got tabs full of riot armour and IOTV patterns open on my laptop. If GCHQ are watching, it probably looks like I'm starting some kind of insurgency.
OldNoob

That is because you are, a foamy, zombie LARPy revolution. I officially formed and constituted the Foam Warfare Alliance today ahead of getting my own liability insurance and having to work independently from my job to be ready for it's end.

Of course I've watched SCAD Smile and read the Humans Guide to Victory and Chevs guide to Zombie Victory . And of course its the people which is why I killed the no mods in a taster session rule - seriously 3 Stampedes and a LS will do nothing apart from make their owners targets. I want zombs to be of the never back down never give up make yourselves feared variety regardless of what the humans are wielding.
OldNoob

Alternatively you could watch this with the sound down if you are still sick of the Uni calendar.

I will also be running 5 further games before mid August. Hopefully will do BAGW this time.
Boff

You will do BAGW, you have no choice. Razz Incidentally, how many passengers fit in that van of yours? It might be worth you using Bristol as a staging point and then we can split fuel if you're up for that and/or have space.
OldNoob

For BAGW I would use the people carrier as van+motorway=pain. I could get 4 of you plus gear in for BAGW if I can convince the Mrs to lend me the car.
Boff

I shall keep that in mind... UKNW, start organising already! Very Happy

Rain's eased off and I've managed to create a M88 helmet GoPro mount...

Shiny. BAGW is gonna have tons of go pros you do realise Razz (PLEASE UKNW MAKE IT BEFORE THE 20TH SEPTEMBER)
Boff

This is a good thing. The more independent voices and videos we have around a single event, the better. Different perspectives, from organisers to various types of players... Very Happy

HHAHAHAHAHAAAAA (like the NWA in Hot Fuzz Razz )
OldNoob

No like the N.W.A in hip hop.
Although I had totally forgotten it was in the mighty Hot Fuzz.



Anyone want anything from the shop......
