About Me

My photo
I'm a bit of a born-again wargamer! I played many of the Games Workshop games when I was in my teens and early twenties, but left the hobby behind when I went to University. Over the last few years I have gradually got back into it and am literally having a ball! I'll play pretty much anything now, ranging from ancient historical to the far future! I think that I get more out of the painting side of things than actually playing, but that might just be because I get more opportunity. Hence the title...this blog is all about the colour of war!!

100 posts and The Great Colour of War Giveaway

Well! Here we are! 100 posts on my humble little slice of the blogosphere! It's taken me nearly 3 years to get here, but it's still quite a nice milestone to reach. Over those posts we've seen quite a lot of different things come and go and seen my focus twist and shift like a platic carrier bag in a strong wind! But it's quite good fun to look back over the archive every now and again and recall a lot of the fun times I've had in this hobby and see figures that have not been out of the box in far too long. I realise that there's no real theme to the blog and I drift from one thing to the next, but hopefully there's something for everyone and I'd like to thank all the readers for continuing to visit!

Now the bit you've been waiting for! Drum roll please....! The Great Colour of War Giveaway!

Here's how it works. I'm quite interested in what periods and games you lean towards and so I have 4 miniatures that I'm willing to part with, ranging from the ancient period to more modern and a bit of fantasy thrown in. These are all pictured below. If you would like to win one of these then all you need to do is leave a comment on this post stating which miniature you would like (first and second choice if you follow the blog)* and what game system you're likely to use it in. When the winner is announced I will paint the winners chosen miniature and either base it to their requirements (or not at all...your choice!). Simple! Now, this is open to all visitors, so I've allowed anonymous posting, but I ask you to leave your name or some sort of handle so I can identify you in the draw.

*To sweeten the deal a bit for any followers of the blog, if the winner is not a follower, then I will draw one random blog follower and they will receive their chosen figure unpainted (second choice if your first has been won).

On to the candidates:
We start in the Ancient period - a Crusader Retiarius
A quick hop to the Dark Ages - a Foundry Viking
A bit more modern - a Copplestone Gangster
And a flight of fantasy - a Reaper Elf
So, thanks again for dropping by! Good luck in the draw and I hope to see you around for the next 100 posts!
