Or at least Thunderstolen...  :-)  I definitely have to figure out how make videos like this, but it perfectly sums up the excitement level I feel sitting at my hobby desk this morning.  This was lifted from Les Grognards on Facebook who in turn got it from Kurtus Brown on Youtube.  Enjoy!

Not feeling it yet?...  OK, bonus video!!

2CELLOS - Thunderstruck [OFFICIAL VIDEO]



  1. I enjoyed both videos for different reasons.

    "It begins" had some great paintings that I haven't seen before. Without wanting to seem too thick - what begins? Have I missed something?

    And the Thunderstruck cellos was great. Luckily it didn't go on for too long or they would've been out of bow hair!

    1. As far as the original video author is concerned, I really don't know. It was posted in a Napoleonic Wargamer group on Facebook. I think they might be playing some sort of campaign/live game on Youtube later this fall.

      It seemed appropriate for me and my current state of mind in that this blog is getting a "reboot" and thus getting a fresh new start. Like the video I am hoping to build momentum and excitement in the miniatures and terrain projects I plan to share this fall and onward.

      So, I sort of "stole their thunder" and thus this blog is in turn "thunderstruck" with the building excitement shown in the video/campaign teaser trailer.

      And with AC/DC's song "Thunderstuck" on my mind, I felt the 2Cellos version was also very appropriate to post as well. :-)

      I do love how they destroy their bow strings when they play. :-)

  2. Yes Jason I'm eager to see what Kurtus is up to with Naps, would be great if you start doing naps videos too!!!

    1. Like his or yours? I don't know if I'm ready for Prime Time yet. ;-)
