His fan art costumes include the Iron Man “Mark 1′, “Mark 42”, “War Machine”, Halo’s “Master Chief” and other pretty amazing art pieces such as Gurdians of the Galaxy’s “Groot”.

Ghost also works in video and film productions in various positions such as prop master and crafts some pretty realistic and visually pleasing weapon creations for modern and science fiction movies.

Airsoft Featured Player – Nomad – AirsoftUtah.com

“Nomad” has a load out that I noticed at game held by Black Thorn Airsoft and I thought it would make for a good featured video.

He is also a team member of BTA.  He and I were on a team together during a scenario game and I observed that we were able to cohesively maneuver with other team mates easily and I find that his situational awareness allowed him to do that quickly.  When an issue presented itself, we we able to free ourselves from a possible ambush.  Clearing rooms, checking corners, covering each other and actually succeeding in holding an area for quite a while with an onslaught of opposing forces as a squad type unit was possible because of players like Nomad.  That over his kit was reason enough to feature him.  My favorite part of his kit is the 3 to 4 grenades he carries. That is something to celebrate, specially during the game!

Haunted House Airsoft Game – Winter Soldiers – Fear Factory Un Cut

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

Black Thorn Airsoft held a private game at the Fear Factory haunted house in Salt Lake City.

More info on the Black Thorn Airsoft team can be found here:

This is an un cut video, meaning that it is pretty much the raw footage straight off the camera, with only seconds here and there cut out.  I know some of you may appreciate seeing moments that shape the games you play that aren’t always the most action packed.

Filmed on my iPhone 6s.  Stabilized while I shot by the “Dragon Fly” handheld stabilizer by Digital Juice, I recommend it highly, its a very simple and easy to use piece of equipment.

Here is a shortened version of the AAR (After Action Report) from from BTA’s command: “Trooper”. For the full story visit: http://blackthornairsoft.squarespace.com/aar-after-action-report/post/2547610

The day started a bit cool and quickly warmed up to a sunny warm fall day! Some traffic and car problems hampered the meet-up convoy a bit, but everyone seemed to make it close to on time.

BTA welcomed to our 8th Annual BTA Halloween Zombie-Game… OPERATION: “DOOM” of 2015 at Silver City a.k.a. “The Ruins”

After the briefing and before the first game, We held a raffle… giving away prizes that could be used “in-game”. Wonderful prizes were provided by…
• BTA sponsor Tactical Airsoft Supply (TAS) in SLC & Layton, Utah!
• BTA supporter ILikeAirsoft.com!
• BTA Command & Team members!
• and… BTA fund raising! (water, dead-rag, and food sales)

*********************************************

INTRODUCTION:
BTA zombie games are not scripted. Each wave has a loose scenario with objectives you the players must follow. How you accomplish them is up to your skills and tactics. Interaction, dialog, and allegiances between the different living “teams” is left up to you. Your success or failure dictates how you are rewarded or punished in the following rounds. It could mean the difference between having numbers, ammo, supplies, even how many opponents you will face… or what you lose! BTA zombies are not merely targets… do not expect them to act as such. They are unarmed, walking, “players” with only one goal… wiping out you “living” players!

WAVE ONE = DEFEND CAMP & SUPPLY RUN:
The survivors left one team to keep it’s camp secure from roaming Zombies, while a “supply run” squad was sent out to scrounge surrounding locations.

The supply run squad gathered all of the supplies before discovering a Scientist holding up in a nearby ruined building. They approached cautiously, and were fired on by BCO Operatives dressed in all black!

The BCO operatives viciously left shot Survivors to be eaten or turned by a few of their pet zombies guarding their perimeter.

However, as it turned out… the Scientist was a BCO captive and managed to escape with sensitive material. He then linked up with the lone remaining Survivor, and they made their way back to the Survivor camp.

Unfortunately, the camp was under heavy attack from Zombies and in the confusion the Scientist was shot by the BCO Operatives who pursued them and discovered the location of the camp!

WAVE TWO – TRANSPORT:
Before the Scientist was killed he left the survivors with intel about a location that the Survivors could bring the sensitive materials to… where they could possibly use it to stop the virus or at least strike a heavy blow to the nefarious BCO plot! Unfortunately, BCO reinforcements arrived making this task difficult. Ultimately, the Survivors broke free of BCO’s grip… however they were overtaken again before they could reach their objective.

WAVE THREE – DEFEND FROM ASSAULT:
For the first time the Survivors have attracted an all out assault from BCO Operatives, who attacked the Survivor camp in force pursuing them into the surrounding forest. The Survivors fought well until they were forced into a group of zombies and BCO wiped them out.

While BCO normally takes samples of the dead and undead then departs… this time they wiped out all remaining survivors and Zombies?!

What is BCO up to now…? Come out to the fourth annual OPERATION: “DEAD OF NIGHT- 2016” next Summer to find out!!!

*********************************************

After the games we held a COSTUME CONTEST! Giving out fun patches to Best Zombie, Best Slayer, and best Civilian. Followed by another raffle of more zombie/survival themed Fun Prizes!

Watch the BTA web site AWARDS page for details on the prizes and winners… coming soon!

Thanks to my fellow command team, family and team members for arriving early to help set up!

More thanks to the BTA team members who stayed late to help in the field clean-up!

Special thanks to ALL those who donated towards the prizes!

Last… but never least, very… very special thanks to everyone who came out and played with a great attitude and great imagination/costumes for always making this another great BTA event! Hope to see you all again soon!

Kfactors Scope Cam #39

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015

Our buddy “Kfactor39” has made his 39th scope cam! hey what a coincidence! (39)  We play with Kfactor all the time, he’s a pretty good shot.  Normally Kfactor is seen building up his Ghillie suit and then we don’t see him the rest of the day because he melts into the grass and woods.  Subscribe to Kfactor: Kfactor39’s YouTube Channel

Airsoft Journalist Gets Lost in the Desert – AirsoftUtah

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

ilikeairsoft.com presents a Black Thorn Airsoft game.  Operation: “Trick-or-Treat”.  The games started intense, then all of a sudden I found my self alone and walking, and walking quite a bit, I was left to the desolation of Utah’s extreme desert conditions.  At my most alone moments I could not hear anything but the breeze. Finally the faint sound of squeaking motors on several AEG’s.  But I soon realized that the troops I had come across were in the same situation I was just in, and the search continued.

This game was hosted by Black Thorn Airsoft

Walking Dead Zombie Airsoft Game – Operation Doom 2014

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

— I Like Airsoft.com presents a Black Thorn Airsoft game.  On October 11th-walk, don’t run-or else, they run!  Operation Doom-2014 a walking dead zombie Airsoft game.

Some did run unfortunately for them that meant that the re animated dead were also able to as well and the outcome was not in the favor of the living.

The thing about slow zombies is that they are quite and they appear where least expected.

AAR – 10-11-2014 Op. “DOOM 2014” @ “The Outpost”

BTA’s 7th Annual Zombie-Game was another success! Most everyone was very outgoing and seemed to enjoy themselves. I continue to receive a lot of positive feedback and even quality ideas to use in future BTA zombie-games!

BTA zombie games are not scripted. Each wave has a loose scenario with objectives the players must follow. How they accomplish them is up to their skills and tactics. Interaction/allegiances between the different living “teams” is left up to them. The success or failure of the players dictates how they are rewarded or punished in the following rounds. I could mean the difference between having numbers, ammo, supplies, even how many opponants they will face… or what they lose! BTA zombies are not merely targets… they are unarmed, walking, “players” with only one goal… wiping out the “living” players!

WAVE ONE: “DOWNED SUPPLY PLANE”
A Survivor/Military supply plane was reported making an emergency landing. Just prior it was observed that it had jettisoned its cargo, scattering much needed supplies throughout the zombie infested area.

Two more survivor teams (Civilians & Slayers) moved to the crash site to seek out the downed plane for its crew and information about the whereabouts of its dropped cargo. Some ignored the crash site and went directly for supplies.

An alliance between the civilians and military was cut short when the military turned on the civilians shooting them and taking their supplies!

WAVE TWO: “FRIEND OR FOE?/FACE-OFF!”
With new supplies in hand the three surviving factions feel out each other’s camp defenses while trying to confiscate their opponent’s supplies! The Military survivors swept the field effectively taking out the opponent camps while remaining on the run from the ever-present zombies!

WAVE THREE: “THE GAUNTLET”
Starting on opposite ends the Military and Slayer survivor teams must follow a marked path infested with zombies to a preset destination while avoiding a BCO hit-squad!

WAVE FOUR: “RECOVERY”
BCO is once again dispatched to the area to recover the remains of the infected for testing. The remaining zombies pushed the survivors back hard leaving the field clear for BCO to gather their prize! I may have overestimated the strength of the survivors, or underestimated the zombies!?

Between games players were welcome to enjoy the BTA zombie-game shooting gallery! The gallery consisted of some cardboard targets and a life size paper-mache zombie created by BTA founder Ghost! 10 consecutive hits to the plate target (without missing) earned shooters a treat!

After the games we held a modest RAFFLE & COSTUME CONTEST! Prizes were provided by BTA water, dead-rag, and hot-dog sales… as well as charitable donations by members and valuable BTA supporter Green and Shades of ILikeAirsoft.com!!!

Watch the BTA web site AWARDS page for details on the prizes and winners… coming soon!
