100 Followers! Prizes!

cue pppp-p-p-pyro!
I am amazed to see this morning that I have 100 followers on this little blog.. It's really nice to think that what started out as a self motivational blog has ended up entertaining so many people.

I've ended up with way more on my hobby plate than I first intended when I got back into miniatures painting. The idea was I'd dabble a bit with a few tiny minis and it wouldn't matter if they turned out a bit crummy. I do spend less time obsessing over the paintjobs than I used to back in the 28mm days.. but that means I get them done faster, which means I buy more. It's a downward spiral from there, I have a decent sized Lead Hillock growing under my desk.

A testament to how fantastic the 15mm sci-fi community is that in the course of this blog I've been honored to paint figures for Khurasan and Blue Moon Manufacturing.. Something I never imagined happening. Most of my recent painting has been on a secret new release for Khurasan, can't wait to get it finished off and see it released!

Anyway, thanks to each and every one of the folks following this blog, I promise to keep making free Gut Check! material, do more tutorials (Maybe one on, say, basing.. I can't decide..) and this week will be giving away prize to one of my loyal readers.

I need more space in my figure case so I decided that some painted minis are in order. Which ones would be the most use to the 15mm sci-fi enthusiast? That's easy, Bounty hunters! In this case from Critical Mass' Mercenaries range.

One lucky follower will win this set of minis!
On Monday I will roll some percentile dice vs my follower list and determine who gets the prize. I will contact that person by email and if they respond will mail them the prize.

Thanks again to all of you!



  1. Ehm, aren't those from Critical Mass Games?

  2. Argh! Yes of course, I've fixed it now. I got over-excited :/

  3. I badly understand English language, but it is interesting to me to watch your blog!

  4. Congrats! It's a very pretty and content-filled blog, well worth that amount of subs!
