How to Paint your Airsoft Replica

airsoft-painting

So you want to paint your airsoft replica, maybe you want it painted like you saw it in a movie or picture somewhere or maybe just to stand out on the field with all other black replicas. Whatever is your inspiration or purpose for the look there are a few thing to think about before rushing headlong into the process of painting it. I will try to give a few pointers for you with this article but I also have to say here that I am not a professional painter and I am purely writing from the point of view of an amateur  that have done some painting on his own replicas. So try to take this as my experience and not as a “this is how to do it period”, because I am not the one to say “do like I do”! This more how I do it and if you know better ways then comment and I might learn something also. So lets dive into it. Read more ›

In this article, I will discuss how to train your airsoft team, using a common sense approach. Please remember, like I said in my first article, that there is more than one way to go about training your team. The information in this article is my advice, based on my own experiences. That does not mean it is the only way to train, nor does it even mean it is the best way to train. This information is meant to be a guide, and you should feel free to use what you feel will work for you, or to change or get rid of any part that does not. Read more ›

Tips para organizar una buena partida de Airsoft

Sin ser usados, la replica y el equipo son un adorno, uno muy cool pero adorno a fin de cuentas. Asistir a juegos regularmente es un excelente ejercicio y fuente de diversión que reduce el stress del día a día.

A fin de cuentas, el juego más sencillo y por el que todo Airsofter paso es equipo contra equipo o tomando prestado el termino de los FPS Multiplayer: Team Death Match y ya que andamos por esos rumbos tomemos otro termino más: “Free for all” o todos contra todos.

Sin embargo, existen una gran variedad de tipos de juegos, que si bien son pequeñas modificaciones de los dos ya mencionados no dejan de ser muy divertidos y fuente de historias épicas. Read more ›

Airsoft y LARP

Observando la evolución del Airsoft en México en estos últimos años y sobre todo en los últimos 12 meses he visto que comienza a tomar tintes de LARP*.
