I've won a Liebster Award

 So, the incomparable Headologist over at Do You Have A Flag? has nominated me for a Liebster Award. 

Ok, so what is the Award?  Well, it is a way to help promote your favorite blogs.  Here are the rules I was given.

1. Copy and paste the award on your blog linking it to the blogger who has given it you.

2. Pass the award to your top 5 favorite 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 isn't an obligation to pass this onto someone else but its nice if you take the time to do so.
 Well, I was curious and after a short search I came across this post:

Ok, so now we know that "liebster" means dearest in German, and we can assume that maybe this started in Germany.  Cool.

Back in what seems a life time ago, I was stationed on Camp Schwab, Okinawa in the mid 90's.  There was a camp mascot of sorts, a small dog known as Sukoshi (little) that was allowed to roam the base.

In honor of Sukoshi, I am nominating the blogs listed below for a Sukoshi Liebster Award.  These are small blogs of less than 50 followers that always have something cool posted on them and deserve a few more followers.  They are:

Leave no mini unpainted Neal has some awesome laser cut terrain and I've showcased some of his stuff, like that cityfight board on this blog before.

The Dice Gods Are Hungry! Actually, I'm not sure Neil here qualifies, since he doesn't list his followers, but he has been doing some great painting and even winning with Wood Elves!

Calth Burns frozenreflection is working on a  Kit.  Bashed.  Plastic.  Thunderhawk.  Now go check it out!

How to Lose at 40K  From the vast amounts of Eldar commissions to his stunning Dark Angels Land Raider.  A Sent One has some pretty impressive stuff.  And Necrons, can't forget the Necrons.

Screwed Up Dice Screwed Up Dice has a mountain of content and a molehill of followers.  479 posts this year!  There are great tutorials, like painting rust, reviews of past and present issues of White Dwarf, and even a Parents guide to Warhammer 40K.  It's worth a look, but don't blame me if you stick around a while.


  1. Yeah, about the whole 'followers' thing, I might have misplaced it a while back and forgot how to put it back. I'm good with technology like that....Thanks though Spy, I shall attempt to rectify this right away!

    1. Not your fault you aren't blogging by my rules. LOL. Congrats and keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks for the award, and congratulations on your own.

    1. You are welcome. It was well deserved. And thanks!
