Working WWII Soviet Tanks on YouTube

Sometimes you can go off on a tangent in YouTube just following links.  I discovered these cool videos of working WWII Soviet tanks.  Makes me want to get back to wargaming WWII Eastern Front.

Video's with red highlight are dubbed in English.

T-37A Light amphibious tank (wiki entry)
This is a fun video.

Lots of mud/water to drive in for this video.

Pretty cool to see inside this tank.

Ignore the German tank at the beginning.

There are other videos of Soviet trucks and other videos from this same driver:

War of 1812: NY Militia

Here are some of my latest War of 1812, Knuckleduster 28mm miniatures painted up.  These are New York Militia.

The green basing material (minus the tufts) is from Green Adirondack Blend 32oz, by Scenic Express.
I recommend the mixture.

Next up will be more British regulars.

War of 1812: U.S. Regulars

1813 U.S. Regulars by Knuckleduster that I just finished up.  I thought I'd change up the basing.  This time the soldiers are walking through maybe a spring corn field.  Next group War of 1812 I'm painting up are some British Regulars.
