As a keen Paintballer, in my younger years, I owned my own Paintball gun and gear, playing on a regular basis.
Now in my older years the idea of playing Paintball without the blood, sweat and tears was very appealing so I ordered the figures and downloaded the free rules.
The game is not meant to be a complex game but a very simple, quick and fun game.
|Assembled and painted figures.
|The game is played between two teams made up of 6 figures each and 2 Marshals.
|The figures are supplied with Hexon plastic bases, first step is to remove any flash, glue them on the bases,add a layer of Milliput putty to the base and prime with a can of black primer.
|Starting the painting process.
|The red team.
|Close up shots of the red team, I tried to paint at least one idem of clothing or gear in the teams colours.
|Three sides of the Hexagon base are also coated with the teams colour, these serve as indicators for the figures LOS.
|I also painted the clothing of all the figures from both teams in different colours for a bit of variety and interest.
|The blue team.
|Once all the figures were painted I added the flock.
|The two Marshals.
|The rules are free and can be downloaded from this link: Mini Paintball game.
|The rules also include this terrain Hex, which can be printed onto a A4 sheet of paper,cut out and used as the game base, you will need tho print out 5 sheets.
|Game set up on the dinning table, reading up on the rules and later started playing with my young adult kids and nephews.
|Apart from swimming and fishing, I also managed to sneak in a game on the beach ( I think I may have a addiction problem)
|On returning home I completed painting the figures and based the terrain Hex on plastic card with PVA glue.
|Once the PVA glue dried, I used box cutters to carefully cut out 4 sheets of Hex sheets with 5 grouped Hexes and 2 single hexes, the two single hexes are the home bases for each team.
|The game set up at home ready to take advantage of the current stay home restrictions playing with my young adult son.
