Short and sweet. I actually quite enjoyed it. Very succinct and to the point.

Well done that man. Is Brad Pitt gonna be in the sequel???:)

Thank you Peegore

I appreciate your comments... and would love to hear more from other people too...

As for Brad Pitt in the sequel... his schedule is pretty busy... but Mr Depp is trying to clear a few hours.

Regards

Daniel

Nice to see some real passion about miniatures, something sadly lacking sometimes on Warseer...

Good video....I think you should have refrained from refering to your toy soldiers as "friends," though. Not gonna do us Wargamers many favours, that one!

Only kidding! Nice painting, by the way.

I enjoyed it! The last time I watched a video feature on a wargamer they looked exactly like you. Creepy.

I dunno, I think this guys a good choice to champion our hobby on national/international(BBC America, lets not forget...) television. He (nor his friend) is not in any way the stereotypical "nerd". They both look like decent human beings, like "normal" people if you will and not some crazed fat smelly unwashed emo-goth kid that'll never get a girl that so many people mistake us for.

I love watching those short films about the odd bits and pieces of people's lives.
While you may not really dispel the myth about wargamers, I know a lot of people like you and we certainly don't need 'acceptance' from the normals. Some huge scenery you've got there!
