As many of you know the 'Liebster Blog Award' has been making the rounds across the blogosphere these past few weeks. I'm typically a little wary of these quasi-meme 'blog awards' but the thing I've very much enjoyed about this one is discovering the recommendations of other bloggers. I can safely say that I've been introduced to about a half dozen superb blogs that I would have otherwise never come across - so to me this makes the 'Liebster' a great success.
In turn, I must extend my great thanks to Tamsin, Phil, Aaron and Peter who have kindly nominated my site as part of this. I'm not sure if its really deserved, but I very much appreciate the sentiment. Again, thank you all very much!
So, as I understand it, part of this is for me to nominate five blogs that I enjoy. Excellent! I know there are some other rules, but I'm blissfully going to ignore them...
In no particular order I'd like to give the nod to:
Sidney's efforts, especially with his Great War collection, are a magnificent inspiration. His terrain in particular is something to behold in wonder.
The Conscripts are my old gaming pals from Winnipeg. I love their blog as it's a community effort, with several of the lads contributing to its content. Great painting, opinionated rants and humorous banter - its well worth the visit.
I'm a bit of a lurker on this site but I greatly admire Lt.Hazel's beautiful paintwork. Quality stuff, 'nuff said.
Michael's gift with the hobby is peerless and very, very imaginative. I don't think he's ever actually played a game with his models, but you can't deny the playfulness in his work. Bravo!
This is a new favourite of mine. Amazing realization of the whole package: terrain, figures and scenarios. Simply awesome stuff.
Give these a visit - you won't be disappointed. Word out.
