At the time I was quite thrilled, yet a little unsure what to do about it! I was not quite sure what the award was called, if anything...
I had not come across it on other blogs, and pondered it a while... Then October got rather busy for me, on the painting and modelling front ( you can probably see from my Blog archive that I think I only managed one post in October, the produce of which has been rolling out through November...) ... and I must confess I forgot about it! Shameful I know!
I now find I have been nominated for another Award, this time the Liebster Award, from Styx over at Strange Aeons blog.
Once again I am very thrilled to have been nominated, and most grateful for the award! It really does make all the time and effort, to paint up figures, make scenery, and write battle reports all the more worthwhile when you know its being appreciated and enjoyed by the gaming blogging community.
So I will just say thank you to all those who follow my blog and stop by to comment once in a while. It really is quite wonderful :-)
There have been a number of comments floating about recently about the negative aspects of social media, and yet I have to say I have only ever found it a wholesome and rewarding place to be, its almost a home from home, and a very supporting and encouraging environment. So Bravo to all my fellow gaming and painting bloggers out there!
|The Liebster Award|
|The 'Anonymous' Award|
I must confess the Award I received from Monty stated it was for 'new' blogs, yet my blog has been going for about 6 years now, so I am not even sure if I was eligable for it! But hey ho, its still a pleasure to be nominated.
Anyhow, heres the deal with nominations:
1. Copy and paste the award on your blog linking it to the blogger who has given it you.
2. Pass the award to your top 5 favourite blogs with less than 200 followers by leaving a comment on one of their posts to notify them that they have won the award and listing them on your own blog.
3. Sit back and bask in the warm fuzzy feeling that comes with knowing you have made someones day!
4. There is no obligation to pass this onto someone else but its nice if you take the time to do so.
In no order here are some great blogs to check out and are my nominations to pass it on!
Serrez les Rangs, I am always so impressed with the amount and quality of Napoleonic work I see on the blog, and playing the rules I love for the period, Black Powder. I keep using this blog as inspiration to one day getting cracking on with my own Napoleonic forces! Fine work from a fine fellow in Tokyo.
Ogilvie VC, a fine fellow in Christchurch NZ, who although not the most avid blogger, in terms of output, always puts out great work, and always gives me a chuckle to read the humorous anecdotes and goings on in his actions! Well done that man! One pace Forward!
Crac des Chevaliers, another fine fellow in South Africa, who quite simply blows me away with the quality of his work at the 15mm scale on his Flames of War, World War II figures and vehicles etc. Quality at its finest.
Plastic Legions, yet another fine fellow, in the US, who has done wonderful work in many of the areas where we share common interests; Lord of the Rings, Legends of the High Seas and Hail Caesar to name but a few. Always great to see whats going on here. Well done!
Baron's Blog, another fine fellow in the US, who manages a wide and eclectic range of periods, and always a quality showing. Simply a pleasure to stop by and see what the Baron's been up to. Again, well done.
Great blogs one and all, hope you can stop by to check them out.
Another Liebster nomination!
This time I received a most welocme nomination from a fine blog I have enjoyed for many years, from Scott over at BlackWarden . Scott and I share many gaming interests included a love of Pirates and Lord of the Rings, and even the same NFL team! So its a real buzz for me to receive his nomination.
Scott wrote such nice things, I even felt a bit misty eyed!
His is another great blog that I hope you will check out.
The 'Antipodean' Scott.
