Hurrah!!! Prize Draw Winner Announced!

...And I can proudly announce that the winner is.....

Note, please, my faithful assistant...

(....Cue dramatic 'X-Factor-stylee silent pause.......)

(Cue fanfare, cheering, mass hysteria, etc)

David posted the following...

"Congratulations on the 100k! I particularly enjoy the large quantity of historicals, especially the eye-candy of well painted miniatures. I like the Arthurian stuff, but I would enjoy seeing more of the Colonials also!"

Well, David, thank you. Congratulations on winning the Gripping Beast Romano-British 'Arthur' figure!! 
Glad you like the historical stuff. There will be some Colonials at some point, but lack of opponents means that it always gets pushed back in the schedule. I do have a handful of Sikhs nearly completed, which only need basing and dullcoting. Maybe I'll get round to doing that in the next week or two.

If you could please reply to this post, leaving your full name, postal address and email address, I will be in touch about sending you your prize. I won't publish your response on the blog, so your contact details will remain private and confidential.

Many thanks once again to all who entered and to all who read my blog.

I am currently working on more Fantasy stuff, both Oldhammer and LOTR Elves, but I do have a load of Huns, Arthurian characters and other historicals in the queue. There should hopefully be some battle reports soon as well, so basically more of the stuff that most of you seem to like.

Here's to the next 100,000 views!!



100,000 Views Prize draw CLOSED!!!!!!!!!

Tune in later today when the winner will be revealed!!

100,000 Page Views Prize Draw Details Revealed!!!!!!!!!

In honour of all you great folk who have patiently followed my interweb ramblings on this 'ere blog, I offer you the chance to win this lovely Romano-British character model from my Arthurian collection. He has been mounted on a 40mm round base since this pic was taken, but aside from that he's as you see him here: (Cue drum roll, fanfare, etc)

He's the Gripping Beast Arthur with a head swap, so, apart from the other figure I did exactly the same but with a different paint job (the Geraint figure from my Dux Brit force) he's totally unique!!!

To be in with a chance of winning this (rather lovely) prize, all you have to do is this:

Post a comment onto this post telling me (and everyone else) what it is that you particularly enjoy about the content of the blog. For example, it could be a favourite post or series of posts, a favourite theme, a combination, or whatever really.

Now, while this could appear to some as nothing more than an exercise in my own vanity, actually, I am genuinely interested in what aspects of my wargaming world you good folk come here for.

The draw remains open until I turn on my PC on Saturday 31st August, at which point, I shall publish any remaining posts, then add a post to close the draw and will then put all names of those whose comments fulfil the criteria into a hat (well, a plastic tub, in all probability!) and will ask my son to draw one out! (He'll really like that, as it's an important job...aren't 5 year olds great!!?!!) I shall then post details on here of how the lucky winner can claim their prize. Seeemples!!!!!

BTW: Please don't worry if your post doesn't appear for a day or two. I have 'comment moderation' enabled to deflect spam and we are out and about a fair bit doing family stuff over the bank holiday weekend, so I may not get to the blog every day to publish comments. Please rest assured that everyone who comments appropriately will definitely be entered into the draw on 31st August.

I hope that this lovely prize entices you to enter and I look forward to reading your posts and to giving away this rather lovely model!!!

Thanks once again for your support and I hope that you keep coming back for more!!
