Well, We have been making boat loads of props the last couple years. I can't take credit for them all, but had a hand in some.

Dynamite
Artillary
Nukes
etc..

One of our propmasters, Tank from TEM, is very good. He created a lot of memorable items recently V2 rockets, Nuke COmponents, Eiffel Tower. I'll see if I can dig up some pictures.

I know we use all sorts of small stuff, depends on the game, I once actually put green jello into clear containers for an Alien game, then put Quartz inside to make "power crystals"

-Painted gold rocks for nuggets
-used parts from an old piano to make "UFO parts"

I cant even think of some of the other stuff we've made for some of the games.

Yeah I loved the power crystals.....
We Hooligans ALWAS have props on hand. Bombs, Money, Bonds, Stocks, Letters of Marque, Warrants, Deeds, Wanted Posters, Gold Coins, Holy Relics, Works of Art, Jewelery, Title degrees, edicts, Pardons, Biocontainment canisters, fuel cells, nitroglyceride crates, weapons crates, ammo cans, the list could go on forever... I have two rooms in my house dedicated to paintball stuff.

At Paint The World, we had a solar system prop that was "worth" $50.00


We had medicinal cans of gauze and other assorted items to be turned in for points.

And don't forget our Alien Eggs

I love Hooligan and Mob props! Those teams rock at this!

EDIT:
If I have my way, arh is gonna strangle me!

My plans for Planet X7 in September involve so many prop ideas, even our role-players will have to strategize what they wheel and deal, and what they cling to and keep!

Viper had some really nice props for his VIP game. WMDs that were actually armed devices. If the players removed the wrong wire or pulled on the wrong part it would detonate sending Anthrax (baby powder) all over the players trying to diffuse the bomb.



BOOM!

That's a spectacular prop!

I think you're referring to this site: www.paintballpropsstore.com ?

The best "working" props I've ever seen. I believe these guys will be involved in the Fall Blanding game...(is that the NAWL game?)

Im sort of a Prop Junkie myself...I play alot of Demolition/Engineer roles, so I seem to end up as "the prop guy" almost every scenario.
Some of the props Ive built for various games...




(This one was made during a game from items found in the trunk of my car. Yes, its not pretty, but the General needed a Nuke Prop asap...work with what ya got - ya know?

Yeah, the guy who made the props is actually affiliated with Sherwood Forest. He makes some really nice props for games. The one i like was a pod he would drop on the field and when you open it, it looked like a bunch of paint on top, but underneath was a device that looked like it came from the movie "The Rock". I'll try to find a pic
