Interesting you tube videos

Any interesting you tube videos. Not just complete  films but all sorts (scenes of films etc)?

Here is a good cavalry music video.

Perhaps there's a better place, but I've recently discovered a German group playing PBI. Here's a video of theirs:

Their Peter Pig Russians and Germans fight it out over their excellent Red October factory is excellent. Here's the site:

Batko,

they are excellent videos! Although I did see someone using a tape measure  ;D

I wonder how popular WW2 wargaming is in Germany? I know they have a very strong community playing games like Warmachine and 40K, but don't know about WW2. Not one swastika on any of the panzers unlike many models belonging to people from other countries you'll see, especially those who play Flames of War.

Well the AWI is very popular here, and we lost that one. How many gamers have a Banastre Tarleton in their games? I am always surprised at those gamers who happily amass SS Divisions but absolutely refuse to play Confederates in an ACW game.

I know people will distinguish between the Heer and AS troops as a morale compass of acceptability. For the record I have no judgement to make. I'm a grown up and understand death and destruction represented by you soldiers has little to say about my own values.

The Vietnam War saw US troops massacre civilians. I'll happily play Vietnam. Both sides in the Spanish Civil War killed civilians. I play SCW.

But Germans are very aware of how the outside world views them and any form of militairism is seen as odd. I have several German friends whom we visit on a regular basis. The war is not off limits for discussion but they wonder why there remains a fascination with the period. They accept the holocaust but separate that from discussion of the war. A German soldier at Normandy had little influence over events in the death camps.

I don't have many hang ups over armies that I play, but I cannot help but feel a bad feeling about playing AWI. I know it is irrational but I cannot seem to get over the feeling that to play it would be unpatriotic. I think it is because the Americans make such a big fuss over celebrating it. It feels shit like rubbing ones face in it, especially as we are supposed to be such close allies.

I'm sure you did, Sean. They play a few other games besides PBI, and I think there was even some 1/72 scale figures running about on the same tables as their 15mm stuff, (though not at the same time I hope). There's a snapshot with the earlier version of PBI there somewhere too.

As for Germans playing ww2 games, a lot of the geeks playing tabletop still seem abundant, though I imagine a lot shy away from putting Swastikas on their toys, definitely.

I've set this topic as a pinned topic as it strikes me it is one people will use and post in on a regular basis. Hope you don't mind!

OK, I gave up with Android and went back to my PC. Here is an interesting video or two for you. What do you think? You can look at the rest of the ones I have on my channel as well if you like.

OK, I know that they are a bit W40K, but as they are by me I thought you may like to view them. Feel free to complain about the W40K'ness of them if you like.
