Hi guys, Matt has put out a couple of videos updating on the ACR colouring book we launched earlier this month. Below is the first of these showing how Matt coloured in his Steyr ACR.
In the second video Matt tackles the Heckler & Koch G11 and gives an update on the colouring book and the channel:
Thanks for watching chaps & thanks so much for your support in 2019, we greatly appreciate it. It’s been a busy year and we hope that you’ve all enjoyed our videos!
You can still pick up a copy of the ACR colouring book and the G11 sticker at www.armourersbench.com/shop. we’re very much looking forward to seeing your artistic sides when you send us some photos of your colouring to – email@example.com.
We’ll be back soon with more videos!
Merry Christmas & happy holidays – Matt & Vic
For a while now we have been meaning to set up a merch shop to help support our research and travel costs.
We greatly appreciate your support via Patreon, but we recognise not everyone can become patrons or likes that platform. Some would prefer to pick up some cool merch now and then instead. So we’ve been hard at work, thinking about potential mech ideas.
Vic & I are very pleased to now announce the shop and the first items to be added. Firstly, a specially written and illustrated ‘informative colouring book’ looking at the ACR program rifles. We know its a bit different but we really hope it’s something will think is cool.
A full announcement about the ACR book will follow shortly!
Along with the ACR book we also have a unique original vinyl sticker based on the HK G11! Finally, we have also got a limited run of fetching TAB logo badges.
You can check out the TAB shop here!
We really hope you’ll like the merch we now have on offer, please feel free to let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org what you’d like to see in the future.
An update on what Matt has been up to, where the channel is at and how YouTube finally monetised the channel (spoilers) and how it isn’t really worth it – except for the ability to add links to videos!
Thank you for your support.
This week TAB hit 4,000 subscribers! Thanks for all your support over the last couple of years. I filmed this update on Tuesday during a recent research trip in the south of England. I visited Fort Nelson near Portsmouth and thought I’d film a quick update while I stopped for a break.
If you enjoy our work please consider supporting us via Patreon, TAB is an entirely viewer supported, non-monetised channel and any help is very much appreciated!
We have some great new perks, check out our Patreon page here.
Hi guys, this is just a quick update to let you know some of the other outlets you can find us on. In the past year TAB has grown a lot and we’ve expanded to a number of social media platforms. We know that people different platforms and may not know about us on others, so we thought we’d put together a quick post to let you know where else you can find us online. It also gives us a little redundancy if there are ever issues with any one platform.
Of course, as you all known, we’re over on YouTube – you can find the channel here.
We also have a thriving Facebook page where we post regularly, you can find the TAB page here.
We have an account over on imgur, initially just for occasional photo hosting but the response to posts over there has been great so we post regularly there – especially gifs and that sort of thing.
Most recently we have also set up a discord server for the growing TAB community to chat to each other in, we discuss all sorts there as well as upcoming content.
We also now have an Armourer’s Bench Instagram account, which is brand new, you can check that out here.
Of course as we announced back in November, we now have a Patreon page as well. TAB is an entirely viewer supported, non-monetised channel, so Patreon support is very much appreciated.
Over there we post sneak peaks from upcoming videos and share behind the scenes stuff from research trips and video production. You can find that here.
Thanks guys! – Matt & Vic
If you follow our facebook page you’ll know that I (Matt) have been over in the US for the last few weeks on a research trip. Well, I’ve returned home and finally had a chance to review some of the footage I filmed during the trip. While the core purpose for the trip wasn’t to film I made special efforts to get as much footage as I could. The opportunity was too good to pass up.
I’m happy to report that I have around 80gb of raw footage and over 500 photographs! This covers around a dozen individual firearms – everything ranging from pistols to rifles to light and medium machine guns to anti-tank rifles! Thanks to the generosity of both the Cody Firearms Museum and my friend Chuck Kramer, of the GunLab blog, I have been able to film videos on some truly fascinating and rarely seen guns. Special thanks to both for access to their wonderful collections!
Here’s a few photos of what’s to come:
So over the next few weeks and months you can expect a stream of new content which I am very pleased to say will include more live fire footage! You can check out some more behind the scenes photos and video I’ve posted over on the TAB facebook page.
Special thanks again to Chuck and the CFM for their hospitality, patience and invaluable assistance in the filming.
