…the award that won't go away!
If truth be told, I was hoping to quietly ignore the 'Liebster Award' as it did its annual rounds of our cosy corner of the Blogosphere; the idea of answering eleven questions and then inventing a further eleven more just when just when we were shepherding the pupils through their public examinations seemed like quite an imposition.
Now, as I sit quietly, sipping at my beloved Earl Grey and enjoying the calm oasis that is half term, I realise that I have been incredibly churlish, after all it's not all about me - it was never about me. It would be all too easy to dismiss the 'Liebster' as the newest incarnation of that vile abomination - the chain letter, but I believe that there is more to it than just a self perpetuating pat on the back. The Liebster is about recognising new and interesting blogs and whilst I am thrilled to have been given the nod, not to have publicly accepted it and then not to haven taken the time to acknowledge someone new is just plain rude and we cannot abide rudeness here at '28mm Victorian Warfare'.
So first, I must graciously thank those that have passed the award onto me:
All splendid recipients of the award in their own right making me even more grateful that they took the time to pass on the award to '28mm Victorian Warfare' - thank you gentlemen. The award comes with a series of rules or regulations, but bearing in mind that this is now eating into some precious hobby time, (and that I'm inherently lazy!) I've taken the liberty of tweaking them a tad.
1. Copy and paste the Award on your blog, remembering to link back to the blogger who has given it to you.
2. Pass on the Award to your top 5 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 someone's day!
4. There is, of course, no obligation to pass this onto anyone else, but it´s nice if you take the time to do so.
1. Mr. Smillie at 'Dirty Paint Pots', A fabulous chap and a talented painter who enjoys a variety of scales and periods.
2. Pete's 'PanzerKaput's Painted Review', a more generous blogger you could not wish to meet, whose posts are always full of fun and imagination.
3. Bob's 'BZA Bob's Zombie Apocalypse in 28mm', another wonderfully enthusiastic blogger who manges to put a Welsh twist on all things undead.
4. Hybrid Horde from 'The Walking Lead', another purveyor of all things undead, but has produced some stunning work with skeletons - certainly worth a look.
5. Juan from 'Waziristan on a fancy', whose work on the third Afghan War of 1919 is truly inspirational.
In other news…
Well technically speaking we tied for third, but I can't tell you how thrilled I was to have achieved that as it certainly felt like winning! Those with an interest in all things undead, do please take the time to visit 'RSquared Studios' to see the other fabulous entires.
