Topics I've Started
04 October 2010 - 09:28 PMGood evening guys, long time no post.
I've acquired an Automag Classic over the past year and I've fallen in love with it. Just today I finally received the final piece of the puzzle to make my own perfect marker: the Level X bolt.
I carefully read all the instructions and proceeded to build up the new bolt and such from the instructions and online videos. Sadly to say, none of the carriers work. I've been paintballing since I was 11 and consider myself pretty marker savy, but this has me stumped. I've read that I'm supposed to choose the carrier that is snug with the o-ring along the bolt rod (sorry for the improper usage of words, I'm pretty tired), and in the videos it appears that you can get one that is snug. None of the carriers allow me to make it remotely snug. I air the marker up and it begins to leak down the barrel, but stops when I pull and hold the trigger.
I wanted this guy to be up and working again for my final big game coming up, but I may just have to settle using my level 7 bolt as I know that one will still work.
Any advice? I'd really like to have it up and running by Sunday.

27 April 2010 - 07:18 PMHello all,
Since we're talking about our other hobbies, I thought I'd post my other one here as well. Yes, it deals with paint, but in a different sense:
I've been a loyal hobbyist in this art since 2005 in my first year of college. While I'm still relatively new at playing, I've been painting avidly ever since my first month of college. This will be my vault for my finished pieces. If you have any questions, comments or criticisms, please feel free to post. All the miniatures seen below are only at a scale of 28mm.
This was the only the second mini I've ever painted, he's possibly one of my favorite as has been since made into an ornament for my tree as Xmas time.
I painted this for a friend's Warriors of Choas army:
This was painted for a friend's campaign board game as in individual piece:
I painted this for the same friend as a game board piece in a campaign he was part of. He was a ton of fun to paint and I think one of the better sculpts by GW:
I had a blast painting this guy for a holiday contest. I got first in it and he's now also a fun ornament for my tree!
I painted this for a contest when the new Warriors of Chaos edition came out. He landed me second, only narrowly ><:
Here are units from my old Daemons of Choas army that I once had but sold as I had to move and had too many things to go to my new place!
Here's a paladin I painted for an online contest. He landed me a 2nd place finish and was my first real attempt at NMM:
This guy won me an online contest:
And here's my latest one that I painted for a commission for a buddy of mine.
Overall, it's a very rewarding hobby which has taught me a lot about patience. I love doing it. Plus, it funds my paintball hobby quite considerably!
All the best,
25 April 2010 - 11:06 AMHey all, I'm looking to buy an action ghillie. I thought about this for a while and I'm really not a fan of the jute/burlap ones. With the AG I can still have my mobility but blend in well.
I'm looking for a complete set- top and bottom and the mark coverage.
If you have any of the parts and would like to part with them, feel free to inquire. Thanks!
