Welcome to the Dash of Élan Blog/Vlog

Welcome everyone to the Dash of Élan blog! For those not yet in the know, this blog is the central hub of all my other blogs and vlogs dealing with the wonderful hobby of miniatures wargaming. A Dash of Élan is now THE place to link to access all the other blogs. It is also my spot to post anything about the goings on with the Dash of Élan YouTube channel as well. In fact, the channel is quickly growing as content is increased. So far I am managing about two videos a week with more planned - including a new series to be announced soon. Already I have posted a number of great reviews on rules such as Blucher, Panzer Grenadier, and Cross Fire. So head on over - link is on the side of this blog - and let me know what you think.

Here are some things I have planned for the Blog and channel so far:
  • lots more rules reviews,
  • new BatReps and LIVE Plays with the TtC community,
  • a new series called SOLO Tactics which deals with SOLO wargaming,
  • a new BatRep series which lets YOU, the viewer not only watch, but take part by making some key decisions during play,
  • and lots more!
Unlike most of my other wargaming blogs which are very focused on particular historical periods or genres of wargaming, a Dash of Élan is more generic with a focus on the hobby in general. Expect to see update posts here on this blog pertaining to the channel, as well as articles of a generic wargaming nature - things that don't really fit in with my other blogs. All in all I want this blog to be as useful as possible, even if you don't subscribe to the YouTube channel.

Here is the latest video I have done for the channel. Be sure to subscribe as well to see future videos. Part two to this one should be up before the end of the week.

I hope you all enjoy what is coming in the next few months. Hopefully we can get more exposure to not only miniatures wargaming, but historical wargaming as well. As always, feeback is welcome :)

Till next time...



  1. Really enjoy your blog and Utube channel

  2. Going on a long, relaxing vacation usually involves taking lots of pictures, so you pack a camera bag with your gear and head out. Unfortunately, you sometimes find that packing a camera and gear for your vacation and actually toting them around and using them are two very different things. Bluetooth Dash Cam
