Hi Guys,

I've not been as active on here for a while, setting-up my painting business keeping me busy.

However, as well as painting for Don, I thought it would be a great idea to make some YouTube videos on this and similar subjects. My new YouTube channel is called Mickey's Minis, like my business and I have just uploaded the first of three vids on how to paint the Neo Ashigaru. http://youtu.be/Owpf4Y2cGxM
This one shows you how to prep the minis for painting. The second will be how to paint them and the third, how to base. I hope to get some more work don on these tomorrow and may upload part two and at a push three.

I would really appreciate some constructive feedback on these and of course the usual like/subscribe.

If you have any requests for future videos please let me know. I think a similar one with OTC tanks may be a good one?

Great start, I subscribed and look forward to more. My only comment would be to lower the background music volume or remove it entirely.

Thanks Battlespace,

I've just watched it myself on iPad and on another PC from the one I created it on and I think the dialogue needs to be higher in volume. The music is good for filling in the bits when I'm not talking and I generally like a good background tune on these kind of vids so I intend to keep this, but take your point and will lower it a tad. I may have to re edit the sound on this first attempt and replace it.

Good news is the second vid is all but complete, just need to get the sound levels right.

Hey Michael!

Subscribed as well. I liked the video very much but would have done 3 things differently - 1 of them an add-on, 1 remove and 1 tone down :D

1) I'd remove the clapping at the end and instead try and come up with something that provides a nice audio finish
2) I'd bring the volume on the background music down a bit, as distracts me from the Dolce tones of Michael Sims :D
3) I'd add in a step summary at the end, a bit like they do in current GW painting videos. This could also be how you end the video and therefore whatever sound track you come up with there would finish the video.

Great initiative :D


Thank you my friend.

Like the ideas, will look to implement ASAP.

I really like the idea of a summary at the end. I think I may have to start doing that in my videos.

I subscribed too.

What are you editing with?

Hi Guys,

Part Two is now live, their are still a few audio issues which I was unable to fix as the editing was done a while back an I no longer have the original footage (rookie error), hopefully this shouldn't spoil the vid for you too much. Hope you enjoy and keep the suggestions coming.
