This is for anyone new to the Brigade to tell about themselves, position, how long you've been playing, your favorite color, whatever(so long as your not breaking any rules.). Dont be shy, we're all 'ballas here.

I'm not new, but I can still introduce myself.

I'm Andrew, I'm 17 and I'm Ghost Flanker [One of the types of Sniper]. I've been playing a few years now. Got hooked probably in the summer of '04 playing with old pumps. Those were the days. In anycase, I currently shoot a Tippmann 98 Custom [a little more than a year old] with a Thunder Pig, 14 inch "Quiet Barrel", an ADCO Sure Shot sight, a remote line and a JCS Folding Stock.

And it's slightly strange, but my favorite color has always been green. ;)

I'm also a Moderator here on the forums.

Peace out, have fun, and stay safe.

Ahh, why not.

Hello to one and all. I'm Tyger. (Nobody else would actually ADMIT being me...) I'm old. Ignore the creaking, that's just my knees. Been playing since '89 when it was a PGP and a few hundred paintballs for a whole day. I'm still playing, probably a little slower than I used to be. In the Brigade system I'm a "Sabre", play any position that's needed. I figure someone's gotta do it, so it'll probably be me. And I'll play anything. Woods, Scenario, Urban, Indoor, Speedball, Tournaments, Rec, Pump, Stock Class, open semi... who cares. If I'm flinging paint at somoene else, and we're all having fun, then I'm happy.

I also run Web Dog Radio, a paintball video site with tips, tactics, and techniques. Free to look around in, and there's a lot of woods stuff and old school videos there too. I also co-wrote the "Complete Guide to Paintball", currently writing for a couple of the magazines, all that good stuff. I'm here mainly to be a nusance and the occasional voice of sanity in an otherwise insane world. No, wait, that was Star Trek again. DANG!

And don't ask about the injuries. It's a long story that'll end up as a web page on my personal site sometime... HEY! I'm old! Where's the rocking chairs around here? Young whippersnappers... back in my day we had to walk uphill both ways in a blinding snowstorm to play paintball in our bare feet to buy paint at $1 for 10 balls and we didn't have barrel plugs either! Wow this is tiny print....

My real name is Adam; I live in Fairport, NY. I am a Volunteer Firefighter with Bushnell's Basin Fire Dept. I have a wife and I am also a father of one child so far. I am 32; I have been playing paintball since 1987. I started playing with my friends Splatmaster, a couple of years later I bought my first gun a Sheridan KP-2 (which I still have). Current gun I own an original round Spyder compact with a lot of extras. I am going to be getting a Tippmann
A-5 sometime in the near future. I will play any kind of paintball, but like Woodsball the most. The position I like playing the most is Saber, mostly because it is an all around position. My screen name came from my interest of the middle ages, and the mythological beast the Dragon; the Fire came from being a Firefighter. The color I like most is Deep Purple
Fire Dragon / Team Six

Howdy! People 'round here call my Cpt Obvious...my full name is Kole "CptObvious" Maxwell. My middle name is CptObvious in my books. I live in the suburbs of NY, rather, New Jersey...but about 20mins from PA.

I could be wearing any type of camo and I would still find a way to be the obvious one of the bunch in thick woods...but I don't care 'cause I can fight my way out. I'ma rough & tough guy. I'll charge into any situation if I'm bored enough and feel like living up the game a little (unless I am terribly needed).

I stick to woodsball as the woods are where I feel at home. Anywhere else is like a forgein country to me. My friends see me as an inovative person, what with all the idears I come up with. Its just I never go through making some of my idears, 'cept the one currently I am working on.

I currently shoot a slightly modded Tippmann 98 Custom, painted my own special camo. It can be found in the marker pics topic in General Paintball. It has a rocket cock, JCS foldable stock and 14in Smart Parts Progressive barrel. It shoots pretty durn good. 'Nother one I just picked up today is a Striker Pump. Its an oldie that only cost me a total of $45. I'm gona be showing some kids who own Autocockers and Angels what it means to really play paintball. Woooweee! Good 'ol hunting...!

The Midnight Raidersis the team I lead into action. I am the founder of the team, too. We operate in NJ, PA and NY, totaling 30+ members, a few from each state. We're making our debut as a whole to the world at the Siege of Stalingrad at Skirmish in March.

Lets see, anything else ya'll need to know 'bout me? Oh, right, I have a short temper, though no one here has had to find that out the hard way. It comes naturally, I think, being a football player as well as a paintball player who gets little to no sleep every night and has to wake up at flippin' 5:30am every morning to go to school and on the weekends do needless hogwash!!! Oh, sorry, I'm rambling...welp, HAVE FUN!

::Edit:: Oh, right, I've been playing for around six years. :)

Yo, FreQ the Havoc, here. I'm 15 years old and am currently a freshman in high school in the East Bay Area of Northern California. I've been paintballing for less than a year so far, but I've already taken to the sport and am in love with woodsball and my A-5. There's something magical about being out in the woods paintin' it up with your fellow ballersfor hours on end...

Anyways, I'm a huge fan (a slave, in a way) to video games (PS2 and X-Box), but I manage straight A's in school none-the-less. My favorite color(s) are green, purple, and the all-versatile black. I'm in choir at my school and am participating in this year's production of the musical 'Cinderella'. I'm also into photography and Sign Language (I'm probably going to be an interpreter when I get out of school).

I play as a 'Sabre' in any sort of game, it seems. I just got a bunch of pb gear for the holidays (including the Flatline fpr my A-5) and just posted pics of my gear on my Brigade page.

Hope you've enjoyed your intro to my world! :D
I've finally decided on a name for my A-5: "Fat Lady"

--'Cause it ain't over 'till the Fat Lady sings!

(And what a sweet song it is!)

Well I'ts a little late but hey, better late than never right?

I am 17 years old residing in the wonderful state of TExas in Lubbock to be precise. When I'm not slaving away at Frenship High School (more than not being accosted for things I probably deleted off the server) I joined the Brigade in 04' after meeting up with the SpecOps guys @ oklahoma D-day this past year, they were a funny bunch of guys and they really reminded me of how our JETS team works so I tried to find out info on them and what not... plus having a freshly digitalcamo job done an a kick dumper hummer bring them up considerably in my book

I am currently using an Armotech WG-65 with a 114ci Air Amercia tank with a q-loader set-up. I have nothing against Tippmans, in fact I got my dad to purchase one, but my friend had a zeus, I loved it, and got the biggggg one lol. Purchasing in small chunks and ebay go hand in hand lol...

I'm planning on haivng a freaking sweet tank as soon as we can get some of our smaller projects out of the way ( and until we can get enough money raised). My teamates and I are pretty much enfatuated with the sport and love to play whenever we can. I have participated in (played heavily towards the end) for about 7 years now... I know playing paintball @ the ripe young age of 10 is crazy.. but hey birthdays are better with paint... Our team is a bunch of engineering students from texas tech (myself is but 1/2 year away from) so we are always interested in creating/designing new and grandeu things...Ill take some pics one day... until then - Tex out

Good to see some familiar faces over here. :D

I am Robotech...that's all you need to know for now on names. LOL 34 and I started playing back in 1989 with a Brass Eagle Nightmare pump. Mind you, in 89 Brass Eagle was actually a tourney marker. LOL What the heck happened there!? Anyway I played at SC Village back when it was still known as Sat Cong Village and when a typical tournout for stock class was 40-50 guys. Semi-autos were their own class and really had just started to catch on.

Having most of my buddies move away (plus college and dating which as some of you know ZAPS the funds for paintball right out of you sometimes) I got away from the sport. I have been playing once again for about a year and have yet to regret it.

I am an old school woodsball player so about the closest thing to that kind of fix I get now is Scenario ball. Currently I am directing (leading is too strong of a word) a paintball team from here at work known as Shadow Team. We've done a couple scenarios out here in So. Cal. and are starting to make a rep for ourselves...but in our own way. LOL

Anyway, got to see the Spec Ops vehicle up in Monterey this December and it was a shame that vehicle wasn't used in the scenario...it was so nice. Anyway, glad to be here guys.

(admin: sorry if I broke a double post rule, I just found this thread after already posting to the other one)

Hey Everyone,

Just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Chris Serfustini (aka Soylent Green). I have been playing paintball for over 18 years. I haven't played very much (about once or twice a year) for the last 10 years, but I am born again into the service of the small sphere. I still have my first gun, a heavily modded Splatmaster Rapide (quit laughing, see my pics :) ) I also have a couple of VM-68's, A new Cocker Trilogy Pro, a new A5, and a scenario launcher I made myself (works awesome!). I will play indoors, I do enjoy tournements, but my passion is woodsball. You can shoot me currently at PB Planet and PB Addicts on a semi-regular basis. I have my own home based business, so I am available at somewhat short notice for pickup games. I am also available to give a hand with anyone planning a scenario game or building a field. I am a whiz at marketing, digital media, and anything mechanical or electrical, but I don't mind digging ditches either. I have some formal and informal tactical training and experience. I guess that's about it, hope to see you all on the field soon.

Hey all,
My name is Nex, or Jim to those that could pick me out of a line up. I have only been playing Paintball for the last two years, but I have the Bug bad now. We play woodsball here, wherever we can. I wanted the fastest gun for the buck when I started, and bought a Spyder Imagine. I have painted it and stuck a Reloader and a smart parts progressive on it. I run C02 cuz it's cheap (notice a theme?) and tried one of those delrin bolts (FYI it only made me chop more for some reason.) Oh, and my favorite color is blue.

Hey Everyone! My name's Lantz "KIA" Rossman. I'm 15 and live out in the middle of nowhere. You can find it on a map of Ohio, right beside a town called Ney. Anyway, I started paintballing when I was about 11 with a Black Maxx. This was mostly shooting at targets I set up. Then a bunch of friends got markers, and we all got together. None of us knew that a "Chrono" was, and we just set our guns so that they tore the same amount of bark off a tree as the next guy. B)
From there I got a M98 Custom. I've had tond of barrels on that, from a CP to a Tippmann Sniper. I setteled on an All American and a Shocktech Drop Forward. That gun was passed on to Dad, who bought me an A-5. I put an Evil Pipe Kit and a CAR stock on it, and painted it a swank pearlescent dark purple...yes, I said purple. ;)
I go to Hell for Tippmann World Challenge and Global Conquest. Everyone should come up for those, they're a friggin bast. Other than paintball, I'm a percussionist in the school band (Fariview Percussion 2004 - '05 We Bang Hard), and am a die-hard Halo and Ghost Recon fan. I also enjoy burning things, and am considered an electrical genuis among my friends because I KNOW what happens when + touches -. :D

Kepp on playing, and remember - Snipers do Exist, but are trained not to!

My name is Rory McCarthy... dont really have a nickname that sticks... some try but usually everybody ends up calling me "Rory" after the novelty wears off.
I am one of the partners of SpecialOps paintball (means I own part of the company for you youngins) and I along with jayson (Joracle on the forums) and his brother got the wheels rolling on this company. I am 25 and just recently graduated from the University of Utah with a B.S. (yes... thats bull shhhh) in Sociology with a minor in military science and a certificate in criminal justice. I also recently comissioned as a 2LT in the Army National Guard and will be going to flight school to fly Ah-64 Apaches for the national guard here in Salt Lake City utah. I also captain Team Special Ops factory... for the rest on that read my brigade profile. I played my first game of paintball in 1995 and played casually here and there and then got SERIOUS into it a little over a year and a half ago and have played like a maniac ever since. I also play quite a bit of tournament paintball in addition to woodsball and enjoy it for all politically incorrect foulmouth rudeness that it is... it's my Dr. Jekyl/Mr. Hyde personality that I have. Actually I just enjoy all forms of paintball really and am not a fan of people telling woodsballers that they have no skill :P

Any other questions... ask I might tell ;)

Hi everyone! I'm Brian "MOATI" Russell.

MOATI....it's an acronym...


I'm not conceited or anything :P

I've been playing paintball for 6 or 7 years now. As soon as I started, I was hooked. I literally eat, sleep, and all out live paintball! And I'm old too! I don't know how I do it!

I started playing back east and loved the massive big games and scenario games. I recently moved to the west coast, met Robert from Cops911, and with him, formed Team Cops911. We hit as many scenarios across the country as we can but we're also trying our best to support and create some growth in the scenario world right here on the west coast.
