No Forgotten Weapons or Time Ghost? Bogus!

RP Archive, is quite good. The DM's Craft, by DM Scotty, has older material which is superb; his latest videos are not as good as much of the older stuff. TheDMGinfo is quite good, as well. Dungeon Craft, with Professor Dungeon Master, is quite good, for RPG's. He also has some crafting videos which are adaptable to miniature wargaming, as well.

The channels which truly interest me, are those for crafting with cheap materials. I find many of the RPG crafting channels have techniques which are highly useful for wargaming, as well as their intended audience of RPG'ers. Those are what interest me, the most. Cheers!

Of those listed the only one I've ever seen is "Little Wars' and it is terrific.

I've watched several YouTuber's launch a channel, get successful (making money off of it), quit their day job to pursue it full-time, then get burned out on it, after a few, to several years. They run out of ideas, topics, etc. They have to re-invent their channels, to stay relevant, and popular. The need to produce can drive them away from their original intent, which can drive subscribers away…

YouTube channels are a bit mercurial in nature. I doubt most can make it their primary source of income, for more than a few years, if they are doing crafting/gaming channels. There are exceptions, of course, but only a few that I have seen. Cheers!

I never knew they ever HAD YouTube videos for wargamers.

Kings and Generals and The Old Wargamer are my "other" choices.
