Haradi Agitprop

"From the late 1950s, right through to the last days of the empire, the Imperial Ministry of Information produced material, such as short films, designed to portray the Imperial government in the best light to both foreign and domestic audiences. Not all of this material was subtle, and indeed some of it belonged firmly in the realms of fiction." - P.K. Brewer, A Short History of Harad, London, 2007.




I have been playing around with making movies again. This time I used pictures taken during a game with Frank to create a nice piece of propaganda. Friday is my last day of work for 2012, the next week will be taken up with frantically completing job applications, but after that I should have a few days before Christmas to spend on gaming projects! After all, it's that, or deal to the jungle that is the lawn!

  1. Definitely choose the figures over the lawn, I would! I love the propaganda video, the rebel mortars "shelling civilians" was a classic touch. I'm Sorry to hear about your job though, I hope you get the right work soon, good luck!

    1. I plan to film a game soon, but I expect that some opponents may find the end result not matching their remembrance of the game!
