So, you may
find yourself asking "Where are those Bastards?", if your looking to skirmish with us. We're easy to find. First place to
look is Replisoft. We used to keep this a secret, the store that is, because after all it is a business and we don't want
a bunch of people just hanging out. But things have changed, and the shop has got quite a reputation now. Due in large part
to the shop's owner. Who shall still remain un-named. (But we all know his name anyways)
used to play at Fields of Fury, until an unfortunate turn of events closed the field down. Who says Bushido is a dead art? Then
we moved to Moorpark in Ventura County. This is a great field to play at. It offers a Varity of play with
two fields. They call one the beach. It has bamboo, thick foliage and a river. Sand is a bitch to run in. Then there is the
top field which is much bigger. Here once again you have thick foliage. But the top field is very different from the beach.
It is more of a forest setting, while the beach is more of a Nam setting. There is a third field, but it is used by Paintballers. We usually don't play on that one and
they usually stay off of ours.
been playing at Woodcrest, which is the usual field now. This field is good. It has a huge ravine that goes into
a wooded area. A stream and some hill sides. There are roughly 4 fields to game on. Usually they are combined for a better
game. Two of these fields are used by Paintballers, the ravine and the area above the ravine. We use all of them. The
ravine is just that a ravine with a bunch of junk in it for cover. The area above it has some tress and bushes.
With junk, again, for cover. The cool thing about this is that there are some trench like areas in it. These two fields are
usually used for speed ball type games. Now the two fields to the right of the ravine are great for skirmishes.
They are heavily wooded areas with lots of cover. There is a small stream that runs though it and some small hills. Two small structures,
one of which I'm sure is used by bums at night. The back of the field is rarely used but, as recently noticed has some great
also played at LZ echo. Which is not a friendly field at all. During the summer it is hotter than Africa in the midst of a drought. To get to the playing area you have to walk down a hillside. So that means
to get back up you have to walk up a hillside. It would be a great place in the winter. It has a stream and numerous
hills to play on. A large gully runs though the middle of it.
there is Crimson Ridge. This is a kick ass field. It traverses from woods to rolling hills, and is big. All's I can say, cant
wait to play there again.
Oh, and I
cant forget to mention the Pickle Factory. For those that went they know, for those who didn't go, they will never know. Counter
Strike. If you like the game you'd have loved this place. An actual working Pickle Factory. With 3 buildings to use, stacks
of barrels and grates in the yard. Vats to run between. Vehicles (not for driving they were parked) and pyrotec's,
smoke and noise makes. We played a night game here and it was great! Sadly though it will be the only game played there. As
we were informed by the owners (who play also) that it was too big of a mess after the game and we could not do it again.
See what happens when you dont go to a game that every one ask you to go to. You miss out on one of the best fields
But by far
the best place we've played, Anza. A friend of ours has 75 acres of land out there. When we go it is a weekend event. This
is by invite only. But the field has so many great areas to play. The Orchard, a large wooded area whose trees are
about 8 feet tall and very dense in brush and cover. The games in here are long and when shooting starts its up close and
personal. Then across the the yellow brick road (so named because of the yellow flowers that grow in it) is a huge field with
shrubs and hills. And The Rocks, in this field there is a huge rock, three stories high, great spotter site. With
a wooded hillside and a shrub covered slope. The picture doesn't do this place justice. This is one hellofa place to
We've played on many different fields it's getting to the point where they
are to numerous to list. All have their pros and cons.
