A brief but interesting British Pathé video of the British Army's state-of-the-art simulation hardware (and liveware) between the wars.

The same site hosts a lot more interwar video.

I've seen it before but it is rather good, isn't it?

That´s so cool! Now if I could only get my wife to get under the table and do that on game days…

Already figured out the kid thing Robby! Got two of them left at home, and three out of the nest!

Tomorrow I start some slave labor with my 18 year old when I hand over to him a regiment of dragoons to paint. It will be his first try, but as I am paying for speed and quality I hope things will end well!
