Shoot. Kill. Win.

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

I have been counting the days down until the first day of paintball season. It might sound crazy but it gets my heart racing just thinking about 2000 players getting ready to do battle. Last season the  Ironmen unleashed the DAM on the world of tactical paintball. Backed by the insane firepower and accuracy of the DAM along with the addition of 2 new Tactical Ironmen, the motivational  and strategical specialist The Wolf and South Africa’s heavy weapons artist Bryce Thompson, the Tactical Ironmen were unstoppable. We went undefeated  leading our sides to victory at every major tactical event including Living Legends , Skirmish ION, Michigan Monster Game, Tippman World Challenge, Decay of Nations and Wasaga Beach.
This year the Squad looks equally as strong and we are looking to stay undefeated. This season we have been armed with some great new equipment from DYE, including new high definiton lenses that make help seeing though the darkest of forests a breeze.
Our 2014 season opened at OTP (On Target Paintball) in New Jersey. I picked Bryce up in NYC and we were off to OTP. The field was a tactical players paradise. There were three man made forts that were heavily defended by bunkers and equal amounts of woods. On hand were 500 players, mostly groups of tactical teams. I enjoy these games because the quality of play is usually really high. Tactical teams move and communicate together, they fight like a force, and unless you bring your A game they are going to eat you up, the teams at OTP were no exception. The battles all day were intense and  judging  was exceptional with the local PSP Divisional teams providing highly motivated reffing not affraid to get in there and pull players out despite the amount of paint in the air. The staff at On Target Paintball was top notch the air stations were up and filling to 4500 all day and the game ran great. When the smoke had cleared and stories were told I headed back to the city with a big smile on my face and a bunch of welts and bruises of course.
This season make sure you “#FollowTheShield” not only on the DYE site and instagram but also on the field. We are looking to recruit new Tactical Ironmen and if you join us in some epic battles you might just walk away with a Ironman Shield on your shoulder.

Hells Survivors Monster Game 2013

Ironman vs Ironman – The Tie Breaker

by Pete “Mr. U” Utschig of the Tactical Ironmen

Every July I head to Michigan to represent the Tactical Ironmen and General the Red squad at Hells Survivors Monster Game. My opposing General is one of my long time idols and friend the original Ironman, Team Captain Bob Long. In 2011 I took the victory and the Monster Cup, In 2012 Bob rallied his army to a win . This year I was not leaving Michigan without the cup.

I boosted up the red team with fellow Tactical Ironman Bryce Thompson and Hells Survivors most well known tactician Narf. Armed with superior tactics and as always superior firepower because of our DAMs we took a quick lead the first day. Sunday Bob again rallied his team but it was not enough to overcome our firepower. The Tactical Ironmen still remain undefeated in 2013 and added the Monster Game to the list of there victories.

Dave Massey and all the staff at Hells Survivors did another amazing job and there is no question why the Monster Game is one of the countries longest running games.

With Victories at Invasion of Normandy, D-Day, Living Legends and now the Monster Game the Tactical Ironmen armed with there DAMS seem unstoppable.  Make sure to check out the game highlights soon to come. See everyone at Wasaga Beach I see another big Victory in the future!
