a lot of people in their guides for LL said they get 2 cases but that's what I shoot in a standard day of play. I was thinking pre purchase 3 and buy another if I need it. I haven't done any big games before so I don't know if its any different in terms of how much you shoot. It would suck to save up only enough money to go and play and sleep and eat and only have enough money for 3 cases when I need 4. its happened before. again, I am completely new to this whole big game thing and I have already started saving up for LL8 or 9(and canadian carnage). I am very gracious to any advice anyone wants to share with me in terms of how much paint the shot last year. I was planning on using a mid end speedball gun and a pump (when I need it)

 

Thanks

I'd say if your normally shoot 2 cases a day in a recball environment, save for 3 and be ready to buy one more. I usually shoot one case a day, but I am planning on getting 3 with money to get a 4th just so I can have a case to lay down the paint during the dinner and final battle, when I am not going for a slapstick.

Last year I played as a medic so I wasnt shooting as much as a normal player, I am also conservative and I used roughly a case and a half in LL6.. If you shoot 2 in a day of recball then id follow what Irish said

The average is 1.8 cases per person for the entire event.

Will there be an option at the event to by individual bags of paint if we run out opposed to buying a whole new case?
