Go ahead and add "Friend of Lucian" to the maybe list. He is determined to use 2 nerf foam swords and no gun, it should be intresting to say the least.

I can confirm attendance now, though I'm pretty fucked - all my darts are white (they'll all be lost with the snow on the ground). See you then and Merry Christmas now.

If anyone needs a primary or backup or wants to trade/buy anything, I will be bringing a large part of my entire Nerf collection (including parts and pieces). So make sure to bring money and/or trading materials.

I will also be bringing some basic tools (Wireless dremel, screwdriver, pliers, lube, epoxy, utility knife, PVC, CPVC, couplers, ect.) just incase anyone needs to fix anything.


Will anybody else be bringing a lot of stuff to trade.

If someone wants to bring a Airtech 2000 I can buy, and around 300-400 stefans to also sell me, I would really appreciate it

I'll also be bringing some nice finished blasters and interesting parts to trade.

Lucian, I can sell you some Stefans. They're Frost King foam with 1/4" BB's, perfect fit in 17/32, loose in PETG, and a bit tight in CPVC. I charge $15 for 50, or $25 for 100.

Oh one more thing, and it's kinda random: if anyone has a single tube of 1/2" PETG (think it's the thinwall type) about 8 inches long or so, cleanly cut, I'll give you a dollar for it at the war.

Does anyone have 1/4" slingshot ammo that I could buy?
Also the weather inst looking so good.
At this point I will have to see how I feel the day of.
I haven't been feeling so great lately.
I may not want to play covered in battlefield conditioner.

Edit:
Bees are fine, I think they are my friends at this point.

According to weather.com, it's supposed to be snowing and windy the day of the war. Just letting you guys know......

Also, I know JADTO already asked, but anyone have any advice for how many darts I should bring? I have never been to an NIC war so I wouldn't really know. Thanks.

Battlefield conditions as we like to say...
also its in the woods so major wind cover, and mamaroneck usually isnt hit as hard as other places when it snows due to the sound location.

Yeah, I'm worried about the weather as well. Is there a snow date, or will the war go on regardless of weather?

And Cheesy, there's no such thing as too many darts. I typically run through about 300 per war, but I'm not big on the whole 'aiming' thing. You'll want at least 30 per round, and count on losing them all.

There wont be a snow date, we'll be there rain or shine. Just come if you can, its gonna be awesome either way. Snow wars are the best.

I'm gonna wait until the night before to spraypaint the backs of the darts depending on the weather report. If it snows/is snowing then blue, and if its not, then white. What do you guys think?

I would say just spraypaint blue beforehand. Doesnt really matter.

I say paint them RED or GREEN. :P
I love the cold so this is gonna be even more fun.

Blue should be pretty easy to see snow or no snow, but its gonna be hard either way. I almost lost my black minimized crossfire, that was hard to find. And I plan on making at least 300, or until I get super bored of making darts or run out of supplies.

I'm probably going to need darts.
Can someone sell me 200-300 1/2", stefans made with slingshot ammo at the war?
I'm basically a maybe at this point, the combination of the weather, sleep deprivation, my gun condition and my lack of darts is pushing me toward not going.
We shall see!

Doesn't matter what you're playing, stock Raiders never serve a purpose :)

EVERYONE:

Please try to bring lots of blasters/materials to sell/trade. Also, if anyone has a Jobar or a Cobra or a variant of either type, please bring it. Thanks.
