Liebster Award

It's that time again, when Blog awards make the rounds, helping to promote fellow bloggers and their efforts.
The very talented Jay, from Jay's Miniature Enterprises has nominated me for a Liebster Award. Having a look at what this means, I am bound to link back to his blog (which is excellent) and then to 5 other quality blogs that I think need to get more eyeballs on them, as they have less than 200 followers.

Thanks Jay!


Now... Technically this makes TSS ineligible, as I just checked and have 350 followers, but I'm not going to allow that to stop me from recommending some fine blogs all the same! I haven't checked the number of followers they have, as by this point I don't think it matters... I've gone rogue here after all.

These are just blogs that I think you will enjoy if you read TSS, and it hasn't hurt that they are all frequent commenters. Blogging is a great way to make friends around the world if you cant get around a game table!

15mmworld
Fjodin posts regularly (much more regularly than me!) and always has a good mix of bright and crisp painted figures and clever terrain ideas. He's a huge fan of Gruntz and is always coming up with something cool!

Javier at War
Blacksmith games predominantly in smaller scales, and is always trying out new game ideas.. Many of them solo. His most interesting games lately have been Two Hour Wargames reaction system adapted to space combat... In particular, the Kilrathi wars of the Wing Commander PC games. Brilliant!

Solo Nexus
JF is a legend amongst solo gamers. His solo adaptation of Heroclix has entertained many, not just for it's usefulness but it's also at times a hilarious read! A huge resource for the solo gamer, I'm sure you will find something useful if you have a look around.

Mik's minis
The most eclectic blog on this list. Mik covers mini gaming, Lego, board gaming, cooking, popular culture, comic books, gardening and even has regular guest spots. Through this site and by listening to the excellent podcast (Minions of the monster master) his group puts out, I have learned so much in the last 2 years, and really got back to my geeky roots.

Lead Addict
A great painter, gamer and blogger. Lead Addict has a broad range of interests covering several different scales and genres. He is lucky enough to have a very active gaming group (the basement generals) and has a lot of interesting thoughts about the hobby.

But seriously folks, this is just a smattering. If you have a click around my "Blog Buddies" list over on the lower right of the page, you can't go wrong... It's all good!

Thank you once again Jay, it's always great to hear from you, and may you continue surprising and delighting us as we model our way through the years!
