State of the Collection - 1st Video Blog!

Hi folks, a quick mid week blog post for me based on something I worked on at the weekend. Egged on by Paul to try out video blogging, and with the new felt table cover to try out, I decided to lay out my painted collection and do a bit of an overview of everything!

The video is a bit long and I could have prepped more (and remembered where the mike was throughout) but you get to listen to me say 'hey ho' several times in my Scottish brogue, so it's not all bad!


For those of you not keen on shaky camera work...


















Let me know what you think of my first video blog! Constructive criticism welcome!

  1. Wow, that is quite the collection! That is a lot of infantry stands to paint. How long have you been working on it?

    1. When I started the blog in May 2013 I had done the infantry company, a few 6 pounders and the MG company. So it's taken me a while!

    2. I've been thinking about putting my German collection out and seeing how much there is. Really though, there isn't much more than my full 1900 panzergrenadiers list. Panzergrenadiers + lots of tigers and panthers.

  3. Well done James! The next logic step is a video of a game, right? An epic bat rep perhaps!
