Armourgeddon Tank Paintball

Armourgeddon is a company based in based Leicestershire, England that deals in paintball matches using a fleet of British tanks, specifically the FV432 Armored Personnel Carrier. After an introductory training session, teams of three battle it out tank-to-tank on an old WWII bombing range.

Koei Infantry Mask

Friday, March 30th, 2012

There’s a new style of Airsoft mask available to protect that pretty face. It looks pretty cool, if you’re going for the Man In The Iron Mask or Samurai look (or just have a dungeon fetish). I can definitely see this being something guys paint up in cammie patterns or something intimidating.

Now if they’d just make one that would provide true ballistic protection we’d be good to go. The Koei Tactical Infantry Face Shield comes in black or tan. It will fit most helmets and goggle styles and is rated to withstand up to 650fps bb impact at “standard distance” (whatever that is).

You can find the mask here.

More fun to look at, but possibly less effective.

Porter Robinson – Spitfire

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

This music video for ‘Spitfire’ by Porter Robinson features two opposing teams slinging paintballs at each other, slow motion sequences throughout, a referee with a dog named “la p00ch”, and visual effects that make it look like a multiplayer video game. Most impressively, it was shot in just one take.

Master Blaster (Slow Mo Paintball SHOTGUN)
