Oh boy! This is one of those horrid little things that pops up on your Facebook page with a picture of a puppy, and says "if you don't like this picture it means you want puppies to get raped and murdered"... well OK so maybe it's not that bad, but you get the point. In a way it's spam, true it's nice spam, because it's somebody saying "hey I like your Blog" and that's always nice to hear, but normally I'd blank this stuff. However, TamsinP over at Wargaming Girl gave me a supposed 'Liebster Award' for my Blog. You can read why here. Now my German isn't great, in fact it's piss poor, but I thought Liester meant sweetheart or darling, does it? Any who the idea is that if somebody gives you an award you're supposed to write an article linking back to them and then give out five awards yourself... you can see why I think it's spam can't you? So why am I not ignoring it then? Well for two reasons:
- I actually like TamsinP and her Blog, so I guess this gives me an opportunity to promote it for her here. And...
- I actually think promoting other peoples Blog's is a good thing to do, and it's something that I do quite often myself any way.
So here goes, these are my 5 awards:
For those of you who don't know it you should go check it out. In many respects Porky appears to be just as mad as me, and seems to revel in the wider community aspects of the hobby and always seems to have something interesting to say about some topic or other. It's one of the Blogs I frequently read.
Dwartist's Painting Blog
I'm pretty darn sure I've mentioned this Blog before on here. I just really love what Dwartist does over there, and they always seem to be painting something interesting and to a really high standard. Go check it out, there has been plenty of really cool projects shown over there.
OK many of you who have read my Blog from the start will know that I appear to have a Swedish gaming twin. He goes by the name Martin and we seem to share shockingly similar opinions on most things. It's always nice to have someone confirm you are right! But, Martin writes some really interesting articles (when he can be bothered) and I always enjoy reading his perspective... even if it does just reinforce my own.
Max Von Deadlocks Miniature Madness
This is a new one for me. I only recently stumbled across it after bumping into Maxvond himself at the recent Campaign Paradiso launch at Wayland Games... or more precisely I stopped to take a look at his lovely Haqqislam army for Infinity and ask the guy who painted them some questions. He said he had a Blog, so I checked it out and again it's full of really cool painting projects.
Although he now writes infrequently (due to offspring) I'd have to say that whenever he does write something I'm always happy to read it. Another blogger wh seems to share similar opinions and passions as myself, but who comes at them from a different perspective quite often. Has a good back catalogue of articles you should probably check out.
Firstly I know I've probably pissed somebody off somewhere by not including you in my list. If I have I'm sorry, but hey the rules say five only and these are the five I've picked. Doesn't mean I don't like / read your Blog. Trust me I do a hell of a lot of reading other peoples stuff. For those who I have picked please don't feel under any obligation to continue this meme. I'd totally understand if you didn't. Peace out!
PS. This is it, I'm not doing it again so if you give me a new 'Liebster Award' I'll not go through th edamned process again. TamsinP got in first, so tough!!! :P
