Zombie Hunters Of Manchester - 3 - 1st October

Post ZHoM 1st October - 3 - Wythenshawe Park (For now)
Right here we go again!
We have a full 600 dart pool! Thanks to BGUK and GuN for the hand!
And this time it is being a fully HvZ style of game like ON suggested to me

Location: Wythenshawe Park - Same area as last time
There is a car park by the farm and I suggest we meet there and work our way to a small corner of the huge park.

Time: 1-4
There is lots to do there if people want to be early and there is food etc
I'll be there at least an hour in advance and look for the small guy with scarily long blonde hair.

Rules:
The obvious abuse lot. None will be tolerated and police will be informed of any misconduct.
130fps limit and only public friendly paint jobs as we are in a public place
Swearing limited, we all do it by accident occasionally.
No alcohol the obvious.
And be respectful to the environment and public

Game: Buzan style HvZ and Speed HvZ games

How to get there:
Google it. As simple as that.
Following Style Road and then sign posts is one way.
Also there is a tram stop.

Notes:
Darts are provided but we ask for a donation of �4 for the ones we loose.
Also some loner blasters are available but not to the extent of Grim up events.
Note again that mandatory eye protection when games are in play

Ages:
Under 16's with an adult please
Over 16's with some sorts of consent
18+ Just show up.

Shame, was hoping to turn up at the next ZHoM but unfortunately we have Foam Dart Thunder on that night in Glasgow, next time maybe, hope you have a good one.

Trustfires?
Joking don't worry. It'll be nice having you down again
skuzzer18

Nope the demolisher is now on IMRs dont worry hahahaha but the desolator will be on a lipo with rhino's and worker wheels
Dustybin

I am attending, this will be my 10th Nerf war (yay). Well done for the rewire and Lipo mod, maybe this time I won't be the only person using a Lipo.
Franksie

I'll be using one too
old_man_nerf

Springers are winners!
The Dark Kitten

I should be using a lipo as well, I've been having charger problems and had to chuck one out!
There will be 600 darts (koosh) and i am saying you'll be running a light rigs as a lot of sprinting round is likely!
Boff

Did someone say sprinting in lightweight rigs? Razz

Which charger were you using? We've had problems with the knock off B6 that Hobby King sell; we can't use it for non-LiPo blasters annoyingly.

-snip-

BOFF! I was trying to get people to not bring loads of mags!
And i was using b6 that was dodgy and wouldn't read the lipos them selves. So im upgrading (when i have some cash) to a B6ac

EDIT

Quotes should be shorter than your reply. Razz -Boff

Boff

I don't have a lot of mags on that rig. It's mostly medic kit and, nowadays, intel gathering and paperwork. My new war rig, however... Razz Besides, if you're fit enough to be able to run all day in that, hats off to you. I don't believe in running light; victory through overwhelming fire power. Even if that overwhelming fire power is semi-automatic.

The genuine B6 is the only I'd recommend - I've not had a lot of experience with others so I can't comment on them. The HKE4 is pretty solid as a LiPo only version, too.

I'll be absent for this one, but have fun!

This is the second one now. I'm debating a date change now.
Week after is out as GuN
Next is out for Franksie
So what can people do?
Franksie

I'm available fortnightly
The Dark Kitten

Right unless anyone objects i'm keeping the date i could push it 2 weeks but then it'd mess with other wars unless i'm wrong.
I want to keep the first sat to be ZHoM day.
skuzzer18

I can be available when ever really. The life of a student XD
The Dark Kitten

I have a few ideas that want to run through before i make any ideas.
- One human the rest zombies. We time to see who lasts the longest
- Cowboys vs Zombies - Lever action, breech shotguns and revolvers only
- Every man - Zombies and free for all
What do people think?
Any objections?
Rab

Cowboys vs Zombies !  Very cool 😎

Inspired minorly by red dead redemption. Never played it but i like the idea.
Right i'm taking a tonne of photos for facebook as i'm trying to kick start it there as-well.
It will mainly be gear and chaos that will ensue that's all.
If people have objections to photos PM me and we'll sort something out
ZombieGavinS

I won't be able to make this one as I'm currently suffering from a slipped disc but hopefully I'll be back on my feet for the next one.

Defiantly take this one out! Relax get some strength and we'd love to see you in a month!
So far it's been good fun and we've had a good verity of players.
Worsly is some distance but following the m60 east for a bit should sort you out. Ask Justajolt! Its very well signposted
ZombieGavinS

I can't wait to meet some like minded nerfers, once I'm back on my feet me and my oldest will definitely be joining you guys and it looks like the wife might want to have a go as well Smile

Google reckons about 18 minutes down the M60
On a bus (38 into town, various options out, 15 min walk from by the college) about 1 hour 40.

As someone who is willing to do 3 hours on buses to get to GuN, thats an easy journey!

That doesn't sound too bad at all,  now I just need my back to heal up and then it'll be time to tag some Z's!
LordSparrow

Hello!
I would be glad to join you. It'll be my first HvZ.
I have a few friends that would like to join too, but thats what they said at GuN and never turned up Sad.
Anyway, see you there!

It'll be nice to have another face around!
Have you read all the stuff on the main post?
And are you over 16 and such stuff?
Just the boring stuff i need to check. And by the way it isn't a full HvZ more a tonne of speed HvZ like GuN ones
LordSparrow

Hello Again. Me and My friend are 14, and we were thinking that we could take his brothers, three who are 6-10ish and another one whos 15. We all love Nerf and I help them out with mods. The chaperone would be their mother. Is that ok???
ZombieGavinS

Other than the 130fps limit on blasters are there any other rules regarding what can and can't be used.

My "primary" is a pair of modded Hammershots and my "secondary" is a modded Sidestrike... My wife wields a Five by Five and a Doublestrike... Our son is rocking a Rough Cut and a Mega Magnus...

Are these all acceptable loadouts?
Dustybin

None of them will be hitting over 130 fps, they are fine. You will have to supply Mage darts.

I have 15 that i'll bring but otherwise your on your own.
Nice to have an extra 3 people! That should be great now we can do larger game types.
OldNoob

I want some Mage darts. Do they throw level 5 fireballs?

I think that should read MEGA darts!

No problem at all!

That's awesome, he's got about that many mega darts himself but wasn't sure if we could bring our own ammo. Might have a couple of friends coming to the November war too. How many people do you normally have turn up?
skuzzer18

Do we have a confirmed date?
The Dark Kitten

skuzzer18 wrote:

Should be.
ZombieGavinS wrote:

Well... first time we had 10 of us and second time just 6 but the area we used last time should be good for the lot of us
Franksie

I think what TDK means is that you all have an opportunity to help shape the future of ZHoM as it finds its feet as a new event  Idea

What he said.
Im more friendly in person trust me
LordSparrow

Ok, quick update, 6-10 yo arent coming. But the rest of us are. Will we have to fill in any paperwork? I know that I had to at GuN.
OldNoob

The original post says "under 16's only with an adult" which should answer your question.
TDK-  you won't need consent forms for 16-18 as you are in a public park.
blindgeekuk

Good luck today, I hope the forecast rain holds off for you
Franksie

I'm packing plenty of springers  Laughing
The Dark Kitten

Weather looks good outside not really any black clouds so it is likely we will be OK
I'm packed and am going to get going any minute via the tram.
To reiterate were meeting in the carpark neer the "Derelict Farm" as dusty quotes it to be.
Good zombie hunting!
Dustybin

We are running late, we will be there at 1320 hours.
Franksie

Fallen tree blocked the road for me - see you at 1340
The Dark Kitten

Cheers for coming all!
Post war thread will be done...tomorrow!
I am in too much pain right now.
skuzzer18

Gutted i missed this guys i really wanted to be there
The Dark Kitten

Right Zhom 4 will be 2 weeks later as school life has caught up with me.
Same everything just expect the post a bit late.
OldNoob

Well done.
EDIT

With mod hat on, I have locked the thread ready for the new one!
