    Being sarcastic, but not hating on anyone (seriously, this is 'Merica...good for you) but how is anyone going to do a CC round, if they're running (ACKEM! waddling) in SM armor at 1 to 12? By the time they get to one another they're going to be huffin and puffin so bad that I'm willing to bet that the chainsword will be leaned against, not used to swing at anyone...

    The dude in the background (stage right) looks eager to play too...

    I get why people like LARPing. It's an organized activity in costume and there's a lot of appeal in that. It's not my flavor of geekery and I think 40k is a horrible setting for it. I want to know why they aren't just using straight Lazer Tag gear though.

    Laser tag might seem better, and would definitely be simpler and already exists. However, laser tag doesn't have anything to do with random ness that is 40k and dice rolling. Also, how would you account for power armour in laser tag. 3 hits and you're out kind of deal?

    But I think I'm in the camp of NO.

    Ok. I'm a seasoned LRP player....

    And I have to say, why not just air soft it? Much less fannying around.

    Mind you, I do fantasy stuff, and still consider clonking some with my mace, or otherwise lapidating my opponent about the cerebellum to be the whole point. Guns are for girls. Go get stuck in properly, you simpering great nancy!
