Today marks the second anniversary of '28mm Victorian Warfare', an off-shoot of this most wholesome of hobbies that has demanded more and more of my time of late but has given me such a great deal of pleasure. The wonderful sense of camaraderie that seems to exist in this corner of the blog-o-sphere has been such a great boon and as a result I feel that it is high time to give something back to the greater community and as giveaways seem to be en vogue at present I've decided to embrace the concept.
To that end there are a series of prizes on offer ranging from the mundane to the mildly ridiculous. In order to qualify you must be a public follower and express which prize draws you would like to enter (you may enter as many as you like) by leaving a comment below. I hope to make the draw on the 31st March at which point I will ask the winners to make contact via email to discuss distribution.
So in no particular order the prizes on offer are:
1. Have some frivolous fun on me with this Usborne Activity sticker book.
2. 'Britain's Forgotten Wars' a must have reference book for all of Victoria's little wars.
3. James Thomas Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan, a Wargames Foundry miniature painted by your truly complete with a miniature Crimea War Campaign medal.
5. Finally a 'Command Stand'! Some may remember mention of me starting a bespoke painting service, focussing on one off command stands - I can't every imagine painting an amy to order! Well this prize is for one of those, simply supply the miniatures you want in the stand, with some ideas as to how you envisage it working and I'll do my best to realise your requests. I imagine the stand to comprise of a couple of mounted miniatures, or perhaps up to four foot soldiers, a vehicle or pretty much anything else, just please remember that I paint at a snail's pace!
Best of luck everyone!
