Once we were two but now we’re just one: a mid-forty-something Dad living in an ordinary house, in an ordinary street, in an ordinary town, tucked away in a corner of the UK.
But every so often – less so now than in the past – something extraordinary takes place in the kitchen or miles away in the dining rooms, basements or workshops of Essex or Kent. Here, for a few precious hours, carefully painted model soldiers or their digital avatars duke it out across pain-stakingly created stretches of Anglo-Saxon England, Normandy, the Eastern Front, Afghanistan or A Galaxy Far, Far Away. That is until the wife and kids come home. That’s when the real carnage begins and it’s why we called ourselves Model Dads.
Model Dads welcomes products for review. We specialise in all aspects of Ultra-Modern, World War II and early Medieval wargaming including miniatures, painting, modelling, rules, scenarios and scenery.
Model Dads aims to provide readers with concise, high quality and independent video reviews that examine products objectively in detail. We strive to remain constructive, fair and impartial irrespective of whether products have been purchased independently, requested or submitted for review by manufacturers and producers large or small.
Model Dads aims to turn reviews around within 4-5 weeks following receipt of goods which we will always acknowledge. Inevitably, Real Life gets in the way and we will sometimes not be able to meet this deadline. If this is the case you will be advised accordingly. Given our usually hectic review schedule Model Dads reserves the right not to review every product submitted. When our review schedule falls significantly behind schedule we will temporarily suspend or delay the submission of products for review to ensure that any back-log is cleared.
All products submitted for review cannot be returned and will be retained by Model Dads who reserves the right to use them for whatever purpose it considers appropriate.
If a significant error or oversight is noted during the review process or products arrived damaged rendering them unfit for purpose, Model Dads will write to advise manufacturers accordingly to ensure fair representation. Unfortunately, any products submitted unfit for purpose or damaged cannot be returned.
Video reviews are hosted on the Model Dads YouTube channel and cross-posted on a variety of popular fora including but not limited to Flames of War, Tabletop Gaming News, The Guild and The Miniatures Page,
Model Dads will always let you know when your review has been posted.
