Grim Reapers are coming for you !!!


The Grim Reapers Sign With Planet Eclipse!
It's been coming for several years now and captain Jay “Shadowfox” Jordan could not be happier: 

“We are very excited to endorse Planet Eclipse!  We never endorse anything we personally do not use and believe in.  Several years ago a few of our players began using Planet Eclipse markers and as more players on the team tried them they would switch to them, and now the whole team uses them.  It just made sense.”   



Why did they switch?  James “Rook” Hineman Grim Reaper XO:  “For the scenario player you need a marker that delivers firepower, accuracy, efficiency, and smoothness.  On top of that it has to be quiet so it is not as likely to give away our position and it must be reliable. These markers deliver of all that.  Add to that their amazing customer service, and it's a no brainer”.


The Grim Reapers started out the season by putting on the scenario event called “Return to Predator's Bane” at Indy Battleground in Indianapolis, IN in which Planet Eclipse helped to sponsor.  It was the largest number of players that ever attended an event at the park and was an immense success.  Every team said they would be back.  According to one of the field owners and pro shop manager Kevin Black, the Reapers produced a first class event.  The officiating was excellent, the missions were challenging, they even had missions for the “Young Guns” to get the kids involved. It was the best event I have ever seen, played in, or been a part of”. 


April first and second found the Grim Reapers at the Iwo Jima event at White River Paintball in Anderson, IN .  According to Edwin “Malo” Serrano, the Reaper's HWS squad leader:  “They always have quality events here.  It's a great field layout with some of the best officiating you will find.”  Here the Reapers were part of the Kamikaze squad on the Japanese side functioning as the QRF and running missions.  Their impact was significant - so much so, the Kamikazes were awarded a team MVT and Shadowfox was awarded the “Sportsmanship” award.


Latter in  April the Reapers traveled to PaintballToGo in Illinois, where they helped the Allies bring home the win.  Field owner Bill Baily does a great job re-enacting the “Battle of Monte Casino”.  From the opening beach landing to the fight for the Abbey, the event captures it all. The Grim Reapers were assigned to be one of the main mission teams and completed their missions. Now that everyone on the team has upgraded to a higher quality marker in Planet Eclipse, the team's ability to move through an area in a scenario field has increased exponentially.  The Axis general noticed and saw fit to award them their “Most Formidable Opponent” while their own general awarded them the “Sportsmanship” award.  “The two best you can win in my book,”  according to team scout Ray “Loki” Babbitt.  “It's humbling to be noticed in this way and means a lot because we really want to help all those around us.”

Next up for the Reapers is the Oklahoma D-Day event.  If you are at any of our events, take up the “Reaper Invitation”.  Check out our schedule; please like us on our Facebook page, come stage with us and try out an ETHA or the brand new GTEK.  https://www.facebook.com/GrimReapersPaintball/

Taken.... 2 (Not a Good Sequel)



I can't beleive it's happened again !!!

Same M.O. as last time.... This time even more markers have been stolen (160 in total) and they didn't take everything !!!

A 4 pallet shipment on it's way out of the UK has been stolen from our couriers. Nobody has been hurt and nothing other than the transporter has been damaged in this robbbery.

The theft took place on Monday night 6th June 2016.

The shipment had a bunch of markers as well as LOTS of other Planet Eclipse product, Pants, Jerseys, Padding, Gloves, Packs, Vest, Barrels, Tech Mats, Spares, Casual clothing, Hats, Grip kits, you name it it was probably in the shipment.

We have all of the serial numbers and they will be registered on our warranty database as STOLEN and any information we receive about the stolen markers will be passed onto the police.. These were all taken in the UK, so we expect them to stay in the UK but you never know.

If anyone offers you Paintball gear cheap as chips then be aware it could be stolen and if you buy one of these ‘cheap’ but stolen markers and it crosses are path we will of course be reporting this straight to the police.

The only reason thieves steal is because they have a place to sell the stuff, don’t give them a reason to go and steal more stuff. Next time it might be your gear!

If you have any information about this theft you can contact Stoney on +44 (0)161 872 5572, email: chris.s@planeteclipse.com

[We will update this page if and when we have more info]

Below is the complete list of markers with their serial numbers.

Back to Back Win for Texas Phalanx



Texas Phalanx D3x takes back to back 1st place wins at the NXL Dallas and now AXBL-Lite. 

Also having a 1st place win in D4x and a 2nd place showing in D5r2.  As a lot may know the AXBL-lite is the biggest tournament series in Texas showcasing the top teams in the south. 




Having  podium standing in multiple divisions we hope to showcase not only our brand but our seriousness to be the best in this sport. We wouldn't have made it this far without shooting the best in the business, Planet Eclipse that is” says Josh Lenhard of Texas Phalanx. 


“Planet Eclipse would like to congratulate Texas Phalanx on another strong event!  It can be difficult to keep that high going after winning an NXL event but Texas Phalanx did not let that effect them as they took home another 1st place finish. Its great to see that they have been able to build a strong foundation through all divisions.  The team has been great to work with and we look forward to seeing them on the podium at the next NXL event in TN!” says Marc Lancia of Planet Eclipse

Catching up with Team Capital Offense




By Jason “foolybear” Lineberger

Photos by English Rose Photography

Team Capital Offense has been on a roll for the past six months, carving their path of destruction through the scenario paintball world.  Here’s a quick recap of where we’ve been, followed by a look at where we are headed!

Sunrise at the Capital Offense Compound

Capital Offense capped off 2015 with one of the best big games on the planet, the Fulda Gap Mega Game at Command Decisions Wargames Center in North Carolina. This year we had some special guests rolling with us – Nick Truter from Virtue, Nichola Hayden from English Rose Photography, and Planet Eclipse’s own Jack Wood. Our visitors got a taste of the Capital Offense experience, from rushing bases and stealthy flank runs through the woods to feasts, campfires, and shenanigans.  ‘Nuff said about that.  Once again TCO brought their A game and helped their side to victory.

Our 2016 schedule is an ambitious one packed with a ton of scenario action. We got right back into it with a January event at Boss Paintball - GI Joe vs. Cobra. At a key moment in the game a well-timed smoke screen and a hail of covering fire scored the game-winning prop for our side as we squeaked out a hard-fought win.

In February we moved the battle to Adventure Beach Paintball for the annual Road to No Ends scenario. It’s a high point of our year – a flat field packed with skilled players and constant action. Plus it’s a great time to rent a big house and hang out as a team.

In April we split up to make Operation Overlord at SplatBrothers, Fallout: Silicon Valley at Command Decisions, and Police Academy at Sherwood Forest, before bringing things back together for the Con Thien event, a two day land-control big game.  By this point in the year we’ve amassed two Most Valuable Team awards and one Most Valuable Player, but more importantly we’ve had a chance to do what we love to do.

After a return trip to Living Legends, our next big project is the Team Capital Offense scenario skills summer camp at Line-of-Fire Paintball at the end of June.  This three-day camp will give participants the best upgrade money can buy – a player upgrade. We’ll focus on essential skills, from shooting stance to communication and team work. There will be mini clinics on topics as varied as old school woodsball tricks to effective anti-tank strategies.
