Okay, my dad owns a siding company and tonight I was helping him put concrete on forms when I started looking at the forms as they dried, I noticed that it was lightweight and my dad said that with 2 layers of mesh it would make the stryofoam 6x stronger than normal. So, I cut a form from the stryofoam, cut the mesh, and put the mud on the foam and put the mesh on the mud. Then I put mud over the mesh and I am letting it dry over night. Tomorrow, I will repeat the process to make 2 layers.

When I held up the sheild, it weighed about as much as a pizza! I was so surprised!

So, do you guys think its a good idea? I will tell you how it works when its finished. ;)

i hope you mean you made Ref Shields. Cause if you plan to play and use a shield, any hits the shield takes count as a hit on you and you are elimnated

if you can allow a scenario where shield hits dont count then yea it would be fun.
Im sure the ref's will love it, should you ask around if anyone wants one.
Next time your at the field put the shield where people chrono, that way you can subject it to real testing.

We commonly run sheild games here.

Sheild players are not allowed to carry guns...although they are allowed gernades!
Any hit to the sheild does not count. Any hit to anyother part o the body is an elimination.

These guys commonly advance on the bunkers tha are difficult to breech and gernade them.
Another common tactic is to create a moving sheild for players with guns to get into key firing positions.

Personally I shoot the feet.

It's only for the Halloween game, and only if it fits the costume. No running around with a shield for no apparent reason.

way i see it.... since we have PUGS which are basically mobile bunkers with maybe a nerf cannon, or a DT.Quadzilla.....then what difference does it make to have something like a mobile bunker thats subjected to the same rules as tanks and normal bunkers.....this would be a bunker that anyone can use provided they're gonna keep it up or something......now this might be of use only in a big game or something...otherwise, theres no point in having a "shield" unless you're a ref.

Well, I finished it but I decided to scrap the project. In the end it ended up being just to heavy and impractical, although, there was no way a paintball would even dent it :happy: , so it did work. What I might do is add a little bit more water to the mix to make it thinner and therefore lighter. But sometimes its trying impractical things that transform into very practical things.

If I were to do this to 2 pieces of foam and put them together, it would make for a very lightweight and sturdy bunker...

Thanx for staying posted on my project :)

You need to come play at our local field. :rolleyes:
Not only do Gun Hits not count, either do hits below the knees or elbows.

But I've played games with shields. 24 Hour Games has an Aliens vs. Predators vs. Marines game. Predators get shields (since we can't cloak ourselves). First game, we were only allowed pumps. Second game, we just had much smaller numbers and any guns. I used an old Dish Network dish covered in foam, but that got heavy.
My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.
