Liebster Award nomination.....

"Hi Keith. I've nominated your blog for a Liebster Award! I might not have technically stuck to the rules re who you can select but I wanted to pick blogs I liked!!You can see my post listing all my nominations (including this blog) here:"

Which was nice even If i didn't truly understand what it was!

So, without further ado..
Id like to thank my director, my mother........

Ok Alastair for nominating me, despite my poor. poor spelling and gamma and  random/sporadic postings :)

As it is with the nomination, Ive a few things I need to cover on my website

My nominees for the award are....







Most others are already nominated I think..I'm not sure if I should renominate?

And now for the questions.......

Why did you start blogging?

Hmmmmm.....I have no idea. I think it was more of a way to manage and display my projects, which turned into a tool to show off my own sci fi range. It developed into a place to rant, comment and ask for advice.

If you could change one thing about the wargaming hobby, what would it be?

Hmm hindsight into what I liked and what Ive actually stuck with. Ive dabbled in just about every era of war gaming you can imagine. I'm sure most people have, however I either keep coming back to the same project or have actually stuck with a theme. This is something which I clearly enjoy and If Id of known, id of not invested in so much other stuff! For some people this is the joy, however having to many projects and limited time, does not really afford to finishing anything!

What is best in life? 

Erm...not stating the obvious ones..

Everton FC, 3d printing and the general joy of producing something.

Fame or fortune? 

Fortune...Id be the Wolf Of Wall Street.....however for gaming.......
(Yes I watched it last night)

What miniatures are you most proud of having painted?

Hmmm. I dont have the patience to be good, however my stuff is worthy enough of a gaming tabletop, however I do have an element of 28mm French Marines FIWs and a WW2 American 15mm unit Im rather proud of. They are only small elements, due to my patience/boredom threshold.

How do you deal with burn out?

I just concentrate on real paid work....I then realize that its FAR worse then painting/modelling and find pretty refreshed. I think my problem is boredom, I jump between projects daily. It means I get a little bit done at a time, before finally returning to it. Its like a circle of projects.

Why is a raven like a writing desk? 

Are you on crack? :) Seriously I have not idea what this is, so Im changing the question.

 Who would win a fight. A Tiger or a Lion? 

Tiger.....trained to fight alone

Star Wars or Star Trek?

Star Wars.

Definitely star trek. I think its mostly because it was the first 'effects' that truly caught my imagination. Star Trek was sort of Doctor Who. Quarry scene over and over....
 As a boy I was obsessed with Star Wars, well the action figures. Had them all! The newer films ....meh not so excited, unlike the newer Star Trek which I really do enjoy.

If you had to stick to one set  of figures for the rest of you life ? own :) Seriously, It would force me to broaden my releases! :)

What is your favourite takeaway?

Im really struggling with this one. It has to be either Indian or Kebab. I mean proper Kebab, none of that donna muck!  I always think you get a takeaway, because its not something you can recreate at home, you can get close, however with an Indian or a Kebab you cant really create something like it. All attempts just don't quite live up to the one you can buy from a takeaway.  Its same as fish and chips, well Northern Chippy. Home is Liverpool and the chips are not as good down here, nor is the fact you cant buy gravy!

and thats about it! I shall be updating those that I ahve nominated later today and replying to Alastair! I did look up the rules, however Ive found around 1342 variations...!




  1. Fine job, sir! Congratulations!

  2. Congrats and well answered Keith!

  3. Hey...I had to answer the questions so I didn't see why you should get off the hook!!

  4. Thanks for the nomination Keith- now I've read this, i realise I have a questionnaire to answer....but not much time!
