The 2017 Viking Unit photo/vlog

Well again messing around with the video editing software.  There are few more features that I will use on the next go around.  I did pace the pics with the music, which is an easy selection tool that will definitely help in some of the other stuff that I'm doing.

So on to the last Viking unit, all of the pics in one place, plus some of the single models.

Goofing around with Romans and Youtube

I do a bit of video work and post a lot of my karting videos on Youtube quite often.  I recently purchased some new video editing software and have been playing around with to see what its capable of doing, which is much more capable than previous software.  So one of those playing around moments created this thing on my Roman unit that Warlord Games was kind enough to showcase on their web page and allow me to write about it and the condition that turned my real world upside down begining in December of 2014 to the present.

Here is the video on Youtube:

Here is the link to Warlord Games Showcase:

Yep very basic, I'm honestly not sure that I will do much with Youtube related to the hobby and the blog, I'm certainly not Dr. Faust, or the prowrestling commentator that Next Level Painting is, or the WiscoHornDog saga strategist, but you never know.

For Rome! This time Victrix

No racing this weekend, not feeling right, all due to my head and probably the weather having something to do with it, being that its been very warm and humid.  So I felt like sitting in air conditioning and spending some hobby time.  I finished up some more Vikings on the work desk with conversions and sculpting and such.  Pics of them will follow.  So I decided to give the Vikings a rest and assemble two units of the new Victrix EIR Romans.  These models are spectacular.

They are a little bit limited on bodies, but when you combine the two kits, you get some good dynamics with the poses.  I'll be putting together a full review on them and comparison to the Warlord Games EIR's which I have done 100s of.  With these I'll have 50 more to add to my collection of Romans.  I'm really looking forward to their Auxiliaries which Warlord's were absolutely hooorrrribble, and the previews of their Gauls are cool as well.

So more to follow......
