Warlord Games Black Powder Waterloo unboxing
Watch as I mutter, stutter and fumble through an unboxing video of Warlord Games' Black Powder Waterloo set. A couple of months or so ago when my interest in doing Napoleonics in 28mm peaked, I was looking for an unboxing video of the set before I took the plunge and climbed off my wallet. Well, I climbed off the wallet anyway, bought the set and vowed I'd make a quick unboxing video when it arrived. There's a bit of a corporate FUBAR at the end.

Bolt Action Blitzkrieg Germans (Warlord Games and Tamiya 1/48)
This is my latest edition to my Bolt Action collection and ever expanding Deutsches Wehrmacht. This army has got a bit of everything to be as flexible on the table as they were in 1939 and 1940. I also inadvertently use day-for-night filming techniques when focusing on some of the units. Lol. I also mention my yearly production stats at the end of the video. How about yourselves? How many models do you reckon you get done over a year? Let me know as I’m really curious to see if I’m as industrious as I think or not. Cheers and enjoy.

Napoleonics update. How I paint a 28mm late French Infantry stand.
In this video, I go through how I make a stand of 28mm late Napoleonic French Line Infantry from start to finish, from unprimed to ready for action on the tabletop. The figures are Warlord Games, from the Battle of Waterloo set. Cheers.

Bolt Action British Union of Fascists “fun size” Army 28mm
I’ve finished off my BUF force for Bolt Action and thought I’d show them. I think they’d be great for a smaller skirmish game of Bolt Action, like in a lot of the scenarios in SeaLion and Gigant, but they’d undoubtedly get mashed badly in a straight up battle, even in an early war one. The Finns they ain’t. 😂 As always, comments and criticism are welcome. Keep those brushes moving and we’ll see you again.

Bolt Action Big Cats! Jagdtiger and Sturmtiger for Bolt Action.
A short video of some of the late war super heavy German armor kits I've been mucking about with over the last little while. Both are from Tamiya's 1/48 military miniature series with Warlord crew on the Jagdtiger. WARNING! (ACTHUNG!)(注意!)The music I used at the beginning is a lot louder than I thought it was when I cobbled this video together. You might want to turn the speakers down a wee bit.

Bolt Action Blitzkrieg German MMG: How to paint start to finish.
hola! Nerdos de los wargaming! In this video, I use some snapshots and footage to show how I paint a Warlord Games Blitzkrieg German Heer MMG team in 28mm. Forgive the redundancy in the face painting explanation at the beginning; there was a big gap between the photos and the voice recording. Here’s hoping some of my tips will be found useful to somebody. Have a good one. 😀

Warlord Games, Stoessi’s Heroes and Tamiya 1/48 kits make up this huge Fallschirmjager Army for Bolt Action. I make a mistake with the numbers 6 and 4😳 to my surprise and I announce the 111th subscriber giveaway that will be happening soon. Take care and keep those brushes moving.

Bolt Action Last Levy, winter Germans, Dad's Army, French, Romans pre-Easter update!
I've been a busy Luddite (although I'm starting to get the hang of this sci-fi tech) painting away in my heavily cluttered painting cell punctuated with coffee cups and empty beer cans. This time out I start out with a big shout out of gratitude to British Legion (go to his channel and check out all his projects and musings) and then get stuck in presenting the wargaming figures I've been working on over the past week or so. A lot of Bolt Action sprinkled with some Napoleonics and ancients as well. Have a great Easter.

Bolt Action Battle Report 2: Fallschirmjager vs. Italian Paratroopers 1000 points...ish
A somewhat hungover von Cippangu schlepped himself and his gaming gear to the big city for a 1000 point game. We played the scenario “Surrounded” from the rule book, with the Italians being the defenders and the Fallschirmjager being the attackers.

Bolt Action Battle Report 3: Fallschirmjager vs. Soviets 1000 points...ish
My final practice game at the club before taking my army on the road overseas. In this one, the Soviets and FJ go at it tooth and nail giving no quarter and showing no mercy.

How to paint 28mm Gallic Celts for Hail Caesar
I paint up 4 Gallic Celts in 28 mm for Hail Caesar. I explain how to do the plaid/tartan pattern on their pants... or trousers...lol as well as how to do paint the shields. I guess straight from basic prep to the finished stand. As a bonus, you get to hear what 1000 cicadas sound like all at once as background noise.

Bolt Action Soviets
In celebration of 120 years of film, I have made a silent film with only music and sound effects filming with a slightly better potato than the one used in my first video! This video shows my Soviet Army for the game 'Bolt Action' in all its proletariat glory and vodka soaked stench. Enjoy!

Paint for Waterloo: Conan the Usurper Part 1
Now that the biggest thing I've ever painted is out of the way, I could get stuck into some smaller stuff. I hadn't painted fantasy stuff for quite awhile, so it's a bit of a refresher for me. The mini is by Reaper(?). Waterloo, I hope that you're staying positive, on the mend and enjoying the group build/paintfest. All the best man.

Bolt Action Battle Report #4:  Fallschirmjager vs. Partisans. 1000 points
I brought my beer-fu skills to Rhine Westphalia to protect V2 rocket launch site from some dodgy local characters who call themselves ‘partisans’. The Soligenfreizeitkrieger (say that 10 times fast) really know how to throw down and are fantastic hosts.

Bolt Action Tournament UFO base scenery and some painting desk flotsam.
In this update, I push my mAd EdiTiNg sKilLz to the test adding still photos and background music that's 80 years old! I give an update on my winter Germans for Bolt Action, show some terrain I've been working on for a tournament we're doing in a few months and my progress on the French that came in the Warlord Games 'Battle for Waterloo' box. I remind myself that painting all figures is fun to do and keep the "f" bombs to a shocking minimum.

I wanted to post a video before the weekend to show you all what I've been up to here. I have a solid 1000 point Winter German Army for Bolt Action (the MMG is also regular....I skipped it in the parade.oops) and some terrain pieces that I've been working on for our tournament Operation:FUBAR in October. Guest appearance by the IKEA desk lamp and my dirty fingers. Enjoy and keep those brushes moving!

I outlawed the word 'fantastic' for this one. An update of the minis and terrain I've done in the past few weeks. I've covered all of the projects that I've got going on in tandem with one another, so hopefully there is a little bit of something for all.

Gaming club and stores tour, WIP Napoleonic British and DAK
After a pretty long hiatus, I’m back with an update of what I got up to while in the frozen wastes. A small tour of one of North America’s best, if not the world’s, gaming store, a gaming clubhouse that is second to none and the miniatures I’ve been working on, some might say ‘half-assedily’, while away. I’m glad to be back and looking forward to getting into a lot of the videos out there that I’ve missed. Also, a big 10 thumbs up and thank you to all the new subs and continued support. A bit taken aback here that the channel is on the cusp of the 100 mark. Cheers everyone!

A very sloppy first video ever by a self-confessed Luddite! Bear with me as I stumble through using early 21st century technology with my slowly decaying 20th century mind to give a review of Wargames Foundry 28mm Early World War II Fallschirmjager that I prepared and painted for a wargaming friend of mine who asked me to do it for him so he could play Bolt Action.

Bolt Action Battle Report #5: Fallschirmjager vs. Partisans Part II Das Reich schlacht zuruck 1000 p
My FJ go up against Partisans in sectors. Videoed at the Rijnhotel, Arnhem, Netherlands during the Operation Market Garden anniversary weekend. Will Unterfelbwebel Dieter Metzger get himself a German Cross? Will I win a game? At the end of the game, I give a small waffle about the weekend and a couple of photos of the events happening in Arnhem and Osterbeek. Enjoy.

Hail Caesar Gaulic horde, French Napoleonics and a trip to the museum
A couple of shout outs, audio troubles and only one fantastic "f" bomb in this update. I travel back in time starting with some Germans for Bolt Action, Chasseurs and a battalion of French line infantry for Black Powder and round up the finished work with a horde of tartan sporting madmen. I also show a gift from a friend and a cool reference book I picked up at a relatively unknown museum.

VE Day + 72 years, 3 days update
A video of my hand punctuated with the odd miniature I've painted recently. I ask about snow effects for basing and flip you all off at the end. :) Joking aside, if someone can elucidate the mystery of winter basing and how to make it look like snow rather than white static grass, I'd love to hear about it.

Bolt Action West Tokyo Wargamers Operation:FUBAR tournament debrief.
A very short video of our club’s first Bolt Action Tournament held in Tokyo, Japan. I had hoped to get more photos and some video, but TO responsibilities and dealing with a very determined nosy old lady who felt she had to make her presence known quite frequently threw a pretty big spanner into those plans. But, we got it done, learnt a lot and the club is looking forward to the next one.
