Liebster Blog Award
Justin at the royalistroundhead has very kindly nominated me for the Liebster award (check out his blog - great stuff). Now I must admit it feels rather nice to be nominated by a fellow blogger and it means that at least people are reading what I write. Now as part of accepting this award is that I must nominate up to 11 other blogs. Now this is tricky as many that I would have chosen have already received nominations. So here goes in no particular order
caliban-somewhen - some great Punic war stuff on here
jayswargamingmadness - plenty of eye candy
The blog with no name - some excellent 6mm stuff
thenorthumbrianwargamer - some top quality brushwork
dux-homunculorum - some great ww2 stuff at the moment
christopher-bunkerhill - some great painting on here
Sorry if I have missed anyone as not intentional. I read hundreds of different blogs and they all have some excellent stuff on them. just check out my blog list in the side bar.
Now on to the questions
Why did you start blogging?
Like lots of others it was my attempt to organise my gaming habits and thoughts. What I hadn't anticipated was the community of bloggers that was out there and the links you make.
If you could change one thing about the wargaming hobby, what would it be?
I would love to see more local hobby shops, just so that you can browse around and chat to others. One of the downsides of the Internet
What is best in life?
Got to be family and health
Fame or fortune?
Fortune...then I can ensure my family are protected.
What miniatures are you most proud of having painted?
Well not being the best painter in the world, this is a difficult one. They would have to be my 10mm AWI stuff that I did. first time painting in that scale and well chuffed with my efforts....shame I then sold them..
How do you deal with burn out?
We it comes to painting I think regular breaks are important and having a variety of projects on the go. For gaming sometimes its great to just be a player and let someone else worry about the rules and scenarios
Why is a raven like a writing desk?
Not a clue on this one, most be missing something here
Star Wars or Star Trek?
If you could only buy from one miniature company from now on, which one would it be?
What is your favourite takeaway?
Got to be a Chinese
