Liebstered, cool!

Perhaps fittingly my 150th post.
My mate Rodger over at Rebel Barracks hooked me up with this awesome award for being interesting. In turn I get to name some interesting and good blogs of my own. So go and check them out and follow them.

If I Liebstered you, here are the guidelines.
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 11 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 it's nice if you take the time to do so.

1. Why did you start blogging?
I started as a way of disciplining myself to paint minis for my Flames of War armies. But also as a way to show my friends back in Seattle what I've been doing wargaming wise as well as show people on the internetz that it's not that tough to paint and model.

2. If you could change one thing about the wargaming hobby, what would it be?
I've definitely seen it improve over the years but lets keep working on those social and grooming standards people.;-)

3. What is best in life?
'To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.'

4. Do you want to live forever?
Nah, but for a fair while longer thanks

5. Fame or fortune?
We're gonna go for the money Alex. Keep your paparazzi.

6. What miniatures are you most proud of having painted?
That's tough as my latest are usually my best as I'm still improving luckily. So my Hellcats and my Sherman 76's maybe. My Call of Cthulu fiends and aliens?

7. How do you deal with burn out?
Just do something else, I don't usually get burned out.

8. Why is a raven like a writing desk?
'The croaking raven doth bellow for revenge.' Like my desk.

9. Star Wars or Star Trek?
I'm gonna go with Star Wars though I'm a fan of both. The dirty space thing was a revelation in SciFi when I was a kid.

10. If you could only buy from one miniature company from now on, which one would it be?Probably Empress

11. What is your favourite takeaway?
Pizza for sure, though I love most takeaways.

My list of interesting blogs with less than 200 followers that I think you should check out are:


  1. Nice collection of blogs to pass awards to! Most I know but there are a couple that are not familiar, yet!

    1. Thanks mate. I was just thinking of Gettysburg the other day. Very fun game because of you and our section in general, Craig, Nick etc.
      Everyone on the list does great stuff as do you!
