Happy First Half-Birthday to my Blog!

Wahey! This blog has made it to 6 months of age! It will also shortly hit 25,000 page views so it is definitely occasion to hold a Prize Draw for my loyal followers. Heck, even my disloyal ones can enter.

So, what's up for grabs:

Prize 1: Flames of War "Panzerkanonen" pack



Prize 2: Flames of War "Panzergrenadier Headquarters" pack



I also have stretch goals which could result in more prizes. I will follow the trend of late and paint some figures for the (un)lucky winner.


If I hit 200 followers before the close of the prize draw, I will paint up to 50 points of figures. "50 points?" you ask, "What on earth does that mean?". Simples - I'm using the points scheme from Curt's "Analogue Painting Challenge". For every additional 50 followers there will be another draw for 50 points. I'll even buy the figures to make things easier for me and you. Just as a quick note, these will be painted to a decent tabletop standard using my own techniques and style - don't expect masterpieces!


Rules for Prize Draw


1. You must be a public follower of this blog
2. Post a comment below to say which prize(s) you want to be entered for
3. If you post a link back from your blog to this post, you will get an additional entry in the draw(s)
4. Entries close at 1930 GMT on Sunday 8 July 2012








I'd like to thank Paul of Paul's Bods for a great start to my Sunday - his post this morning has a link to some reviews on Amazon which are flippin' hilarious - go over, follow the link and have a good laugh.

  7. happy half-birthday. Did you know you were becoming quite famous on the other side of the pond. Many of my French friends told me to say Hi!

    Anyway, if you reach 200 followers, count me in for the painting, I have things to paint ;)

  10. Not bad at all..congratulations.
    Thanks for the plug.
    Some of the reviews are hilarious..like the spoof one from the chief constable of the MET and the one starting;
    Picture the scene: a badly sunburnt, blistered and shaved Boris Johnson carries two red Space Hoppers accross the surface of Mars
    I only got to page ten before having to have a break due to laughing so much.
    Cheers

  11. thanks all! :)

    @ Rodger - I don't mind sending them overseas, so enter if you want

    @ Phyllion - but, but - if I make it to 200 followers, some of your planned painting could be done for you!

    @ Lentulus, Beccas and brownk29 - entries duly noted

    @ Jackster - are you sure you don't want to be entered?

    @ Seb - Famous or infamous? "Hi!" back to my French fans

    @ Paul of the Man Cave - do you want to be entered in the painting prize draw though?

    @ fogsoldiers - *whisper* I know, but when I re-upped my subscription to Wargames Illustrated I got them free and thought that they'd make good prizes - our little secret, don't let on to the others! *wink*

    @ Paul's Bods - you got much further through those reviews then I did.

  12. Congrats on all three milestones (I am sure you will hit 200 very very soon. I too don't play Flames of War but I love the hanomag's and want to know if I can paint them well so I throw my hat in for the PzGren HQ company. If I do a decent job on them then I will offer them up on my blogs first full birthday come 8th of September.

    It's a great giveaway as well

  14. Congrats on the blogs 6 month old birthday! It doesn't look a day older!

    Not a Flames of War player so I'll let some lucky other blogger have a chance of winning those but count me in for the painting prize when (not if) you get to the 200 followers (which surely won't be long)!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow, only six months. You're doing great! Please put me down for the Panzergrenadiers.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Congratulations on your half-birthday! (blogday?)

    If I win, I would like any of the FoW sets, doesn't matter which. I do not play Flames of War, but I have been curious about their figures and would like to try my hand at painting some. What better way than to win some free
    :-)

    I will pimp you later at my own blog tonight!

  21. Congratulations on your half-year! You've done great numbers in such a short time and this is quite a nice give-away.

    The cost of shipping to me would be high, but I do like the Panerkanonen pack. Best of luck on getting to 200.

  22. As someone who started a blog at similar time to you. I am very impressed at your meteoric rise in the blogosphere. I guess that's what happens when you post once a day on interesting painted models. It is something to aspire to.

    I would love to be entered in to win that Panzerkanone.
