Blogging Awards! The Liebster Awards

Hi All

I had seen the Liebster awards on a few blogs and thought it was a nice idea. It wasn't until Vladdd309 over at Too Much Free Time, gave this blog one of his awards! I was quite flattered that anyone would think our crazy ramblings were worthy of reading let alone an award! So as we had been honoured I figured it was only fair that I handed out a few awards of my own. Now there are some rules to this but they are not to restrictive.

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 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 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 its nice if you take the time to do so. In no order here are some great blogs to check out and are my nominations to pass it on!

So my 5 winners are:-

Stromtrooper Move - A great Flames of War and Star Wars costume blog. Rob's Germans are beautiful and the high standards of this Star Wars costumes (while not my thing) are really great and inspiring!

Corner of a Foreign Field - Another lovely Flames of War blog. Very well written articles and lovely painted models. Also lots of pictures from historical conventions.

The Wild Host - Khairul's Blog with everything from FOW to 40k to Warmachine. Khairil and his group in Malaysia play in some really great campaigns and do it in the right way in that they all collect new armies for each campaign.

Six Twenty Eight - Braxen's great FOW blog, he paints lovely armies and is a great blog for getting ideas from.

Covering Fire! - Coming from Canada a blog filled with loads of FOW goodness with more AAR's than you can shake a stick at!

Well there you go, my award winners (for what it's worth anyway). Honourable mentings to Too Much Free Time, Kampgruppe EngelFencing Frog and Frozen Gamer AK. It was hard picking the final 5 but there you go I had to make a choice.

Thanks and until next time Ben
