About

Games and history are my passions. I have been publishing videos on YouTube for the past ten years at the Ardwulf's Lair channel. I love doing these videos and plan to continue to do so until The End. But it's not quick, cheap or easy.

I film with a cellphone mounted on a couple of different jury-rigged mounts and edit with inexpensive software. Especially with the new phone, this setup works — but it slows me down and limits the kinds of things I can film. The videos I most enjoy making — instructional and playthrough videos — take time to set up, move pieces around, and then about three times to four times that in moving files from device to device and laboriously editing using primitive free software.

My videos, quite frankly, are less awesome, and less numerous, than they could be — if I had a better setup, with a proper camera, lights and so on. I'd like to start proper live streaming of games in play. This Patreon is aimed at helping out with all of those things. But that takes cabbage.

So I'm here on Patreon to reach out to you. If you want to see high-quality, well-produced, detailed videos about wargames, both for new players and old grognards, then please consider contributing. Your monthly pledge will help me produce more and better content, covering more games and more events.

Every little bit helps, so don't think your buck or three will not be useful. Regardless of funding, all of my content will remain freely available and as ad-free as I have the power to make it. Patreons will receive a variety of benefits, including access to outtakes and behiond-the-scenes planning; check out the support tiers for details.

Remember that sharing this Patreon around is a way to help even if you can't become a Patron right away; we all know that times are tough. Whatever your decision, thank you for taking the time to visit this page. I'll see you on YouTube!
Goals
$67 of $80 per month
At $80 I will be able to secure better lighting for filming. This will make a huge, huge difference in the quality of the videos, and let me film at night.
