RE: wasting paintballs on army men? what about a water machine gun?[TANKS]

That might be an idea Chris
But most of the tank turrets I've seen from this hobby struggle to cram all
their equipment in
and trying to fit a water tank or extra hopper might present a challenge to
most of the smaller tanks
However I think the water gun thing would work for some of the lighter
vehciles, like jeeps or that Humvee I remember someone was making. But it
would be difficult to try and regulate how much ammo a vehcile could carry.
I think that the water gun idea might increase the number of wheeled
vehciles in the game, and make more useful other than hit-and-run tactics.
I can just imagine jeeps charging gun emplacements trying to get in range
and then squirking a trail of liquid death before returning to friendly
lines before enemy retaliation.
