I've used a hand and a half sword in game once, probably won't do it again anything soon. Very annoying to run with/draw and was overly long.

Did get 2 quality kills with it tho and they've earned me a free bottle of bbs 😃

Anyhow might get the gladius or the shorter medieval one.



On another note I took a lightsaber to cqb at the weekend, his it in game and wiped it out during the mike Myers game. Best fun I've had In ages running round a dark cqb zone with no loghts and a flowing red lightsaber

I've often thought of getting an M4/M16 rubber bayonet for the same reason. Although being of a certain age, my silly side says learning the black art of "Ecky Thump" and attacking with a large black pudding, "The Goodies" stylee, for giggles, would be better (sorry young 'uns, you'll have to Google "The Goodies" on Youtube to understand)!

 

I once got knife killed by a kid with a rubber chicken! Sounds odd now I've written it down?!

Bottledtorment was telling me he got a tactical soap kill at MCG The Gaol but the victim refused to take the hit because it wasn't a knife :lol: should have put it in a sock, he'd have taken that bastard!

Just bought a bunch of stuff for the Mobile Infantry load out I'm making, sew on unit patches, a grey jacket to convert into the MI combat jacket, etc.

keep us updated on that, depended on how much it cost you, I might have a go.

Not going to cost that much to be honest, although it does require me to make the chest armour and the M3 tactical helmet, which is in progress (I'll post some pics when I've got something worth seeing).

 

The helmet and armour are being made from craft foam (20 quid off ebay inc p&p) with some web belts and bits of trim added to them, then there is a drop leg holster attached to the armour (we don't see the pistol much in the movie, so I guess anything which fits my drop-leg holster goes).

 

The MI uniform clothing is pretty basic, it's just a grey short zip-fronted jacket (8 quid off ebay inc p&p) with some black trim added to the collar and sides and some elbow patches in tan added to it, then three unit patches (which I got off ebay for 13 quid inc p&p) sewn onto it and black epaulettes. Under that is a black t-shirt and a black neck gorget. The pants are just plain grey ones with some black trim added along the inside leg (not got those yet, but I expect they'll be about ten quid).

 

The original movie prop boots were in fact just trainers modified with the addition of higher ankle support plus a few velcro straps added, so some lightweight modern US combat boots can easily be modified to look like those. The Mobile Infantry's rifle is the (fictional) bullpup configuration Morita Assault Rifle, which (depending on which soldier was wielding it), is either a full-length Mk1 rifle with an underslung pump action, or a shorter Mk1 carbine version, or a scoped sniper version of the standard rifle, all of which are seen in the movie. Since the Morita is (like the movie itself) a bit of a parody of the rather politically incorrect fascist overtones in the Heinlein novel, it's somewhat comedically over-large (also because it was in reality a fibreglass shell which had a Ruger Mini 14 concealed inside it for the shots in the movie where the Morita was required to actually fire).

 

In practical terms, I would like the load out to actually be usable, so I'm going to make the less stupidly big carbine version of the Morita (which also means I don't have to add the grenade launcher). Looking about for a suitable rifle to modify, I was first considering the recently-made fictional UAR airsoft AEG or perhaps an L85, but I've decided to use the Foreign Legion version of the FAMAS, which is already very close in appearance to the carbine Morita, so it should be a fairly easy transformation to make it look like a Morita without messing about with its functionality.

^^Which is a laudable project and i wish you all the best, but airsoft FAMAS's aren't known for reliability or for the kind of spare parts availability that you'd want in a project gun. I'm wondering if a Type 97 might not be a better starting place? At least you know it will be bomb proof...

you might want to have a look at these guys for accuracy sake (and maybe save up for the helmet) http://chaucer44.squ...troopes-morita/, and I know somebody did rubber mag covers which would increase the look of the gun tenfold.

every other FAMAS, I'd agree, but the TM is literally indestructible (very creaky though) remember reading somewhere that TM over reinforced everything because it was their first production rifle.

 

the Type 97, I agree might actually be a better starting rifle, the mag is more accurate, and the gun itself is a more modern design. but you will need to do more external modification work, with the FAMAS all you literally need is the M60 flashhider, the funky forehand furniture, and the mag cover.

Yeah, I considered that one, however, it's not the cost which made me chose not to go for that; since I work in post production and have made props in the past, I reckon I can make one for less that will look okay, especially since I'm making one from accurate drawings, which I have scaled up slightly. More to the point decision-wise however, although the one you linked to is molded from a genuine movie prop (I think a B stock one), it appears to have picked up some warping during the copying process from what I can see (not an uncommon occurrence when molding copies as anyone who has ever made a kit car AC Cobra will know). Another factor is that I know the movie ones are a touch on the small side for my big head lol. Besides which, making stuff is half the fun! Guess we'll see.

I've bought myself a Cold Steel Training Gladius - as we're allowed them to "tag" people who are too close. In my eyes a Gladius is better than a knife! Although the hand and a half sword is also tempting me....

 

Almost bought the same thing before nabbing a Karambit instead. I was thinking of using a Cold Steel Bokken with a loadout, so if I run out of ammo I can just banzai charge. Could put it with a riot shield, actually...

 

And to stay on topic, I bought a torch and mount of eBay for 15 quid, and have a tac vest on the way that I got for about 30 quid on Amazon. Here's the torch, will post pics of vest when it arrives:
