Award Winning Blog!

After the virtual back-slapping of the Stylish Blogger Awards comes the Liebster Blog Award! I've been generously nominated by that all round decent chap and amazing illustrator of all things VBCW, Pete Barfield of PanzerKaput's Painted Review. He really brings the counter-factual world of the 1930's abdication crisis alive.  If you haven't already, do yourself a favour and visit his splendid blog.

Thanks PK; much appreciated!

Now to the rules of this blogger appreciation society chain letter:
  1. Copy and paste the award on your blog linking it to the blogger who has given it to you.
  2. 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.
  3. Sit back and bask in that warm fuzzy feeling that comes with knowing that you have just made someone's day!
  4. There is no obligation to pass this on to anyone else but it is nice if you do.
1st point already done, so on to the next point; passing the award on to some of my favourite blogs. Again, like everyone else, it's a hard job narrowing it down to just 5 and leaves me feeling guilty that I can't nominate more! But rules are rules, so here goes...

In no particular order I pass the award to the following nominees:

  1. James Fisher at Avon Napoleonic Fellowship. He is a serious Napoleonic wargamer with a blog full of resources, reviews and battle reports of games using figures of my chosen scale, 1/72nd! What's not to like?!
  2. Sander at Modus Reg Magni Momenti. Another 1/72nd aficionado whose work I first saw on the HaT website and thought I'd love to be able to paint like him!
  3. Francesco of Franznap and Franznap Miniatures. He is currently sculpting figures in preparation for opening his online store. I can't wait! His Marechal Davout is simply exquisite. And his chosen scale is 1/72nd, too!
  4. Robert of "Serrez les Rangs!". He's been a bit busy with real life of late, but still managed to post a cracker of a batrep recently. His West Tokyo Wargamers club puts on a great show and his sterling efforts in organising painting comps at the La Bricole forum are greatly appreciated. Plus he's a dab hand with producing the eye-candy, too!
  5. And last but not least, another denizen of La Bricole,  Paul Alba of NAPOLEONICS IN MINIATURE. He has a brilliant way with 15mm AB figures. The way he paints them, you'd think they were 28mm figures!


  1. Its my pleasure to nominate your blog mate.

  2. Most kind of you to nominate our blog Ben. I think that you were one of the first of our small group of 'followers'!
    Now I have the same dilemma as you, which five to select...?!

  3. Very many congratulations, a richly deserved award Sir.

  4. Congrats and well deserved!
