Weekly round up 26/1/14 - 1st Giveaway and weekly summary

Welcome to the Great Hall once again it is Sunday and its time for my quick weekly recap.

Lets start with all the negatives :-

The paint table has been moderately productive this week, although not as productive as usual, but then I did not paint for 3 days so can not expect much more from myself.

Unfortunately the planned game of Trafalgar this week did not happen due to me not being able to keep awake on Thursday as the road trip had exhausted me.

Now the good news :-

I have managed to reclaim the top spot in the Analogue Hobbies Winter Challenge with my latest submission and have broken through the 2000 point barrier. I am just managing to keep ahead of Kev but there is a long way to go and I would never underestimate his ability to pile up the points in short order. Not only that Kent seems to be able to conjure massive points from thin air keeping the race to the top wide open.

Midweek saw me make a road trip to Warbases HQ in Scotland, lots of things came from the day and in all it was very positive. Next weekend sees me make the first show of the year is I venture up to Vapnartak in York.

This brings me onto the 1st give away in celebration of achieving 100,000 hits at the beginning of the year.

As always we need a pretty face to start thing off with:

  27. Right Boss, I've done the promo thingy: http://wargamesleadslifenstuff.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/lokis-january-giveaway.html , but the only prizes I'd want, I've got - got a Boney (ooooer missus!), got 2 and 4 and wouldn't have a use for 3. So, award my points/entries to whomsoever seems the most deserving.

    As a consolation prize have the lady in the red paint bathed and oiled and sent to my tent . . . .

  43. Congrats on reaching the milestone!

    Being a sucker for prices you can count me in for everything! But especially the ACW Uniform guide and Rifleman Harris's memoirs. Just got started on an ACW project and the 95th are always close to my heart with Brits being my main Napoleonic army.

    Promoted your anniversary too! http://engineered-gaming.blogspot.fi/2014/01/paint-table-and-lokis-giveaway.html
