#353649 Miltown Throwdown;

Posted by Eik on 21 May 2016 - 03:05 PM in Nerf Wars

Just moved to WI, so I'm going to try hard to attend (provided I don't get lost in Milwaukee)!

 

Gonna bring a few stock blasters that I don't have time to mod if people want to take them off my hands.

 

Also, Is there any fast food nearby, or should I bring food to the field?

Got back in the booth for some cool projects.

I painted these three using lasercut stencils I designed the patterns for. I’ll be releasing these for community use soon.

#332998 You say Panther?

Posted by Eik on 13 August 2013 - 09:49 PM in General Nerf

So I was hoping to warm up to modding again by working on a Panther, thinking it would be an easy quick primary. I went to target and picked up what I thought was a Panther re-shell; the Airmag extreme thing.

Much to my dismay, it had not only a smaller tank...

...but it seems they added ANOTHER OPRV!

#328383 Modification and Paintjob Pictures

Posted by Eik on 29 March 2013 - 04:06 PM in Modifications

Finished a few simple projects for Marchtacular tomorrow.

Posted Image

The Disk Shot Remote is probably the most interesting thing. I crammed a keychain videocamera inside.

Posted Image

Haven't tested it in a war yet, so I'm not sure how good the battery life is, but it accepts MicroSD cards and connects to my computer via USB.

EDIT: Forgot about this. MavTitan on a Recon barrel, for a tacticool masterkey - with some powah.

#328191 Understanding Air Guns

Posted by Eik on 19 March 2013 - 02:33 AM in Homemades

With knives and cutting tools and sharp edges one can see the danger, but it is not so obivious with compressed air.


In addition, all those other dangers listed only impact the individual. Compressed air failures impact anyone who is in the blast radius.

Jolly good time, gents. Yes. Quite. Indeed.

+I was able to mod up my new Sceptor the day before. Morgoth Bauglir pwnd.
+TEAM $WAG reppin’ hard with SlamNorman, PJ, and myself. Missing one member cause he was sick.
+TEAM $WAG uniforms¬– with patches!
+Hatchets were fun. Awkward to throw, but light & short enough to remain harmless.
+DEM VESTS, MAN
+CTF will always remain my favorite gametype, and was for my crew.
+Owning in Vets/Noobs CTF. Noob status!
+Got some good ideas for blaster projects, hopefully can complete a few before Hellaween.

-My teammates had to leave for work when we broke for lunch
-I kinda hate airguns, at least mine. Too much pumping, too much inconsistency.

Keep it up, Minnesnowta.

#320168 Creating a NIC Biography

Posted by Eik on 08 August 2012 - 07:32 PM in Off Topic

I started something like this for a school project a little while back.
Here's my little pamphlet: Foam Warfare and Nerfer Operations
I was going for an 'Army Handbook' style.

"Can it be– I've stayed away too long?"

Unfortunately the Real World has kept me away from nerfing. But I still was able to work on one lone blaster!
Originally intended as a gift for a co-worker, I customized this over-under Doubleshot for the fun factor.

#314482 Maytastic: canceled!

Posted by Eik on 17 April 2012 - 06:09 PM in Nerf Wars

I'm sure several of you are plenty capable of running this war of moderate size, and the absence of a few regulars shouldn't detract a considerable amount from the fun. Besides, at the rate at which MN nerf is growing, it'd be of great benefit for people besides SonReece and myself (I hardly consider myself a "host" anymore, for that matter) to be able to host wars.


Hmmm, would people be opposed to this taking place in Minneapolis?

#313315 Easy Supa' Comfy Handles

Posted by Eik on 22 March 2012 - 01:28 AM in Homemades

I may be totally dumb, but what exactly is the point of tilting the table of the saw? Does it make it any easier than rounding the edges down with sandpaper?


You can take off more material in less time.

I prefer to use a spindle sander, but you could also use rasps, files, or heck a Dremel to work down your handle blank.

Anyhoo, I've been working on a Discshot. Tried out DirectThreat's wash/drybrush techniques, pretty happy with how it turned out.

+chopped up shell and closed it somewhat

This is excellent - I tried doing something like this months ago, but didn't add enough cornstarch so it took forever to cure.

Is that MHA pink foam? Cause that is actually the best foam that ever has and ever will exist.

Fact.

Also, I just finished an Ultimate Missile Blast that will be available for sale/trade at the war. Check the Mods/PJs thread for more pics:

I'm gonna be there somehow. I'm getting sick of being such a flake for these things.

Any new restrictions on airguns?


You should totally bring that JSPB, I wanna see it. I'll be bringing my 'WASP' JSPB to show off, but I'm pretty sure it's waaay too powerful for practical use.
