This little Stop-Motion video combines both the marching of a unit of Chaos Dwarf Blunderbuss Warriors with some shooting. Again, sound was added in the same “Deaf” fashion as the prievious CD BB video also on my channel.
I delibertly slowed down their initial movement to give it a little bit of a “Jerky” apperiance as they are marching, they would be concentrating on their movements. The gun fire effect is at my normal preffered speed.
The song, entitled “Song of Prince Oleg”, is one of the epochal works of the great Alexander Pushkin. I picked this music because I believe that the Chaos Dwarfs are simular to the Russians and the Good Dwarfs would be simular to Vikings. Mixed into the verses of the song are comic millitary commands. English words are as follows;
Wise Oleg to the war hath gone again
The Khozars have awakened his ire.
To rapine and raid the hamlet, city and plain
He gives over to holocast and fire.
So louder music play
And prais the victory.
We beat the crafty foes
And they retreated, yes, O YES!
Then for our people,
For our beloved country
We should proclaim
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!
(There’s more to the song, but I think my video only captures this much of it.)
The “reloading” Yeah, that worked out well. I wasn’t sure that it would and wasn’t sure if anyone would notice the transition inaccuracy that occures when the CD’s all of a sudden get capes.
I just realized that I need a “Plot”. Although these little “Vignettes” are interesting, there isn’t too much happining beyond them. It would be nice to film some type of “Raid” or battle between two powers. Although there is one problem…melee weapon combat. All the GW pieces are molded on 1 position, so how would I do an axe swing, for instance, without it looking like two models sliding around?
ThanX Willmark for the ideas and slaves. They are very much appreciated!
I sort of want to keep the soundtracks to the older records that I have, primarily because on You Tube, Warner Music Group tends to shut things down if a person violates something copyrighted. With the Soviet/Russian/Cossack music … no one seems to care. Also, they are over 50+ years old, and folk songs which anyone can produce, so they are well into Public Domain.
As for using the AC/DC opening riffs…well, I’ll just have to wait and see what happens on that one. I just hope no one recognizes that it’s Angus Young giving the order to “Fire”.
