Hi all, I’ve been hanging around the forum for a while. It’s proved to be an excellent resource for modding and it has really helped me to get back into Nerf for the first time since I was a kid. I’m London based and hoping to take my 10 year old to his first war (run by Davidov) in January.

I'm also an electronics engineer. Not necessarily a good one.

Back with a vengeance to make you want useless blasters. You know you love me.

Hi folks, I'm Matt the Midlander, ("There can be only one!" sorry for the bad Highlander pun)
I'm from Wolverhampton originally and moved around a lot before coming back home.

I trained as an RAF engineer at DCAE Cosford and did an HND in Engineering, my soldering and engineering skills are not that bad, I still haven't done a full rewired stryfe with new motors and everything yet, so I'm a bit of a Nerf Noob.

I want to get into 3D printing and making my own parts, I love modding (only springers so far) and just some general plinking around the house.
I'd like to go to a meet or battle and see what it's like and how my blasters perform "in the field" as it were, I love some of the aftermarket body kits, but they are so expensive!
I used to (and still do on occasion) paint Citadel miniatures to a pretty good (store display cabinet quality) standard, so I hope my paint jobs will be up to scratch, rather than scratched.

Anything you want to ask me, go ahead, I'll do my best to help if I can or have a look inside one of my many blasters, failing that, I'll see if I can find a way to help.

My Youtube channel will be up and running soon, so more to come on that.

I hope my intro wasn't too long....
Happy Nerfing!

Matt Von Grimm.

G'day blokes & sheilas! I'm from the colonies, but I hope you'll have me anyway as I'm just getting into Nerf and there has been precisely zero activity on the Oz Nerf forum since 2016 ️ Here I am with my first ever mod, The Hurricane... It's a Vulcan/Longshot integration with a Barricade based Afterburner running off a Milwaukee M18 battery... I'll put a couple of pics up in the mods section also, although if you're on NMW you might have already seen them... Anyway, thanks for having me and if you're ever in the West of Down Under and want a war... Just PM me

Well I'm Richard from Swindon, been collecting Nerf since mid January, went to Bristol Blast 17 thoroughly enjoyed it looking forward to future wars. Currently still making my mind up on my load, been doing lots of research trying out a lot of blasters. Haven't yet tried to mod any blasters, been holding off till i learn a bit more, after hearing some horror stories about batteries catching fire. Simply put i am finding my feet in a new hobby and thoroughly enjoying it, learning a great deal and hoping that next time i go to a war i'll be more useful to my team ;)

I wouldn't worry too much about these horror stories with things exploding or catching on fire, it's mainly just scaremongering or some idiot driving a screw through a soft pack LiPo.
They're not dangerous at all if you look after them and treat them with respect. YouTube has some great mod guides, I'm currently modding one of my Stryfes with Meishel 2.0s and a 1000mah 40c series Zippy Compact, which still leaves me 12 motors to remove the locks and do a full rewire.
Even stock Barricade motors will take a 3S LiPo, you just need to rewire, remove locks and solder on the LiPo connector of your choice.

Due to the smaller battery tray, an 800mah 2S 40c series LiPo is enough to run a pair of undervolted M.T.B. Rhinos or stock Barricade motors, you might have to shave the posts on the cage for the larger flywheels, but it works fine.

A pretty easy mod with a bit of soldering and some small Dremel work, you just can't do it with a Stockade as the motors are totally different.

M.T.B.s Super Stryfe video is a great place to start electronic mods, everything is clear and explained, so just get the tools and parts and be prepared for the occasional late night up modding, try that video from M.T.B. It's the only way to learn properly, doing it yourself. You may make a mistake or two on the way, but it's all experience, can probably be fixed and you can be proud of something cool you made!

Howdy,
Some of you may know me as Pete or one of the Bristol Blast or FFS game organisers. But for those of you who have no clue who I am, here's a rough guide to "Pete"ing:

I've had a recent change in username to differentiate my own subjective views and downright stupidity from others associated with me on other social media platforms. From hence forth I am now on the Forum as "Fusion" but please feel free to stick with Pete. Apparently the username "Pete" isn't mainstream enough... Or something like that?!

My YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCls28y ... ZjbA4Wt2ZA, is soon to become a group venture with a number of friends, where I am not the only individual creating, posting and sharing content. Hopefully you will see multiple familiar faces appear in due course, all as mad or madder than me mind. I'm sure more brains on this channel will improve the quality over time and become something enjoyable to watch. Regular mod parties will follow once I've settled into the new Nerf haven, AKA a garage. This will situated just the north of "the town that shall not be mentioned".

I am currently a UK affiliate of Jet Blasters, Open Flywheel Project and Foam Blast. So please do contact me on my Facebook or Etsy store if you have any questions regarding those products ( https://www.facebook.com/FusionBlasters/). I endeavour to do my best at being helpful :-).

The name Fusion came from a good Nerf friend of mine, so I'm grateful for the suggestion. The name suits me well as I'm definitely into science, shame it's a physics term and not biological ;-) but physics tends to be superior I'll admit that now.

I'm a fan of all things SG with Arnie spring loads and laser beam fps, so FFS and quickflag would be my game preference. I do also love a good spray and pray every now and again. My 18 dart per second autostryfe normally satisfies that urge at Bristol Blast. The auto stryfe seems to manage 22 round bursts quite well with the worker banana mags.

My game diversity is pretty limited to BB and FFS despite being a game organisers myself, with only 1 venture out to TI Edinbrugh and a game of speedball the next morning. I'd definitely like to do a few more road trips, to gain ideas from others to help develop our own games. I was pretty disappointed I missed the battle of Britain last year. But I think it's time to spread my.... Wings... And become a true Nerf.... Erm... Adventurer.


Pete
