Hey guys. Just wanted to talk a bit about the art of facepaint. Better known as "warpaint". Now you guys are probably thinking, "why the hell would I need facepaint? It's airsoft." Well, surprisingly, most people don't realize how affective facepaint really is, even in milsim. Me and my sniper buddy have scared the hell out of people just because we paint up so well. To date, I have never been killed in an airsoft match while wearing facepaint with a ghillie.

The four main areas where one must paint to create an affective camouflage pattern are the face (obviously), the neck, behind the ears, and the hands. The face is obvious, but most people don't paint the neck or behind the ears. Either because they are too lazy, or they don't realize that any area of unpainted skin glares with natural oils and sweat. The hands are important as well, unless you are wearing gloves. (As a sidenote, if you are wearing gloves, make sure that they are long and reach your BDU jacket. I personally prefer aviator gloves for this reason.)

Also, when applying facepaint, make sure that the pattern matches that of your cammies. I hate seeing snipers with BDU's or multicam fatigues with a tiger stripe-type facepaint. Make sure you guys keep that in mind. I hope this helps you guys out. Stay low and keep your powder dry.
