And the winner is 

Well I have to say it was a genuine surprise to be given this award by my good friend Pete of PanzerKaput's Painted Review. Pete is the talented artist behind the illustrations in the VBCW source books and  an equally gifted miniature painter, if you haven't checked out his blog already I urge you to pop over and have a look. The speedy sod always updates regularly and gives you a nifty sneak peak at the lovely illustrations he is preparing for future VBCW source books. 

 I'm also rather chuffed to have received the award and Pete's kind words as when I started my blog some 3 years ago (goodness doesn't time fly) I had no aspirations beyond keeping track of what I painted, and as a bit of self motivation to keep plugging away at the old paint pots. 

The tough bits passing the award on of course 

Now following the rules as laid out below I have to nominate five fellow blogger for this award. So firstly the rules:

  • Copy and paste the award on your blog linking it to the blogger who has given it to you.
  • 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.
  • Sit back and bask in that warm fuzzy feeling that comes with knowing that you have just made someone's day!
  • There is no obligation to pass this on to anyone else but it is nice if you do. 

In no particular order. 
  • My first choice is Jay's Miniature Enterprise I have been following Jay's blog for a while and always find him doing something interesting (flying pigs at the moment) So please take the time to check out his wonderful creations. 

  • My next choice is The Miniatures Man, a great mix of figures, books and other bits and bobs.

  • My third choice is Land War in Asia there is a great selection of battle reports, and lovely painted figures to feast ones eyes upon, on a regular basis. 

  • My fourth choice is Dust, Tears & Dice there are always great looking figures, and interesting bits and bobs to read over here. 

  • My final choice is The Blog with No Name another great selection of wonderfully painted figures, and show/battle reports.
