Some of you may have noticed a marked increase in the output of Raptors social media pages of late. Both twitter and Facebook.

I would love to say this is because Swampy and Spider have become more knowledgeable and conscientious about publishing stuff, but lets be honest it would be easier to get a noob to take their hits at Ground Zero than that.

It’s all down to the enthusiasm of previous contributer MilGeek who has started penning (should that be keyboarding?) upon our pages. A long term airsofter and self confessed old fart (probably why he fits right in…) for those who don’t know him we heartily recommend his own pages on airsoft, military history, modelling and computer gaming. You can find him over on the MilGeek Blog and his spin off pages chronicling his modelling past times. (No. Not that kind of modelling you filthy minded…)

 

..and he does graphics too!

..and he does graphics too!

We’re sure you’ll like his stuff and he shares a fun first ethos like us, has a penchent for Ruskie gear, for those that can recognise him he’s has already appeared in our vid for Centurions CQB game at Scarbrough and written the report

Welcome aboard buddy.

5 Years on and still going strong…

Who’d have thought this website nonsense would still be getting read? Haven’t you all got better things to do?…

Rest assured more to follow and thanks for popping in!

The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed a new page above on the menu – The Armoury. It will be the home of gear and gun reviews. Unlike most magazines or popular sites we do not get free (or even cheap) gear , we’re not sponsored, and like every other player we have to shell out our hard earned for our Airsofting supplies. So you can trust us!

Having said that, if anyone wants to send us free gear we’re totally for sale, and utterly without morals.

…and I for one applaud it. Especially in the airsoft site sparse North East! Anything that encourages more people to play, give it a go or just support us in our pastime has to be good.

To that end a facebook group has sprouted for players in the North East.

North East Airsoft [UK] says “This group is now open to anyone who has played airsoft in the North east of England at either the NSC, NTAC, or GunHo airsoft sites (including the now closed Marrs site)” With best part of 200 people following the group so far, and plenty to look at.

It’s also a good place to get a look at others photos, videos and comments on sites. Hopefully it gets more people on more sites and leads to better game days. Now who doesn’t want that?

NSC have moved their forum to www.nscairsoft.co.uk/forum, users will have to re-register by the looks of it. So get over and secure your username!

I’ll be at next game day after missing far too many. Hope to see you there!

Right, about to load up and get going eventually hitting GZ in Hampshire on Friday. There’s a few stops on the way that we’ll reveal later, and I’m going to experiment with lots of updates on Twitter, including in the game zone (Nothing too revealing for the opfor obviously!). So stay glued, we’ll be using the hashtag #GZWeekender and you can follow us either here on the right, or on our twitter feed here

We’ll see how it goes!

Well tweeting anyway.

We’ve joined the world of twitter, mainly to follow airsoft news but anything else we fancy. A select few will get added to the website feed you can see on the right, for a more extensive look at what we’re following click here!. Please let us know of anything good we can add…

The rumours are true…. Well, partly. The screaming budgie that was thought to be crashing and burning has appeared to be just slightly singed.

In 2011 a crack airsoft unit was disbanded for being so damn good everyone wanted one. A few of these men promptly escaped from a maximum security forum to the airsoft underground. Today, still wanted by the many teams, they survive as airsofters of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can sober them up long enough, maybe you can play alongside the Raptors
The raptors

Due to an understandable exodus of (the less committed – ed!) players for newer shiner teams the CO took the hard decision to disband the Raps as a regular airsoft team rather than let the proud name limp on like a prize fighter beyond his best.

However a mysterious and foolhardy duo found the ethos and camaraderie just too hard to let go. The never say die, fun first, worry later, all in it together attitude is a hard one to give up. So the resistance has gone underground. Unpredictable at the best of times, now elusive, certainly sneakier and possibly even more resistant to common sense than ever. They continue to play independently whenever they can, and will still write rubbish on here for people who should know better to read, but when teamed up a disturbing yet beautiful transformation occurs… they become Raptors

Spider and Swampy. The Raptors – Still resisting common sense and good taste
