CoE Xmas Challenge

Having problems posting photos on the Clash if Empires site. So here is my Fallschirmjäger platoon HQ ready for action:

and some of my earlier stuff:

Dux in a row...

Some of you may have picked up on Thorbjörn and my thread on the Lead Adventure Forum. However, at the risk of repeating things, here is my work to date:

Liebster do dah

I am the grateful the only non-Swedish recipient of the Liebster Award courtesy of Dalauppror (

His nomination said:

"If you were an Englishman in exile in Denmark you would also need and deserve an Award for your blog. Stephen isn’t only a very talented miniature painter, he also a very good friend that, out of the blue, offered to guide me around in London during this years Salute, be sure to make he’s blog Janner´s Jaunt a visit."

Then out of the blue came Jim Hale's:

"Stephen is another medievalist, whose blog doesn't get the attention it deserves. There are some really well painted miniatures on his blog."

The rules are very easy:

• "Copy and paste" the award on your blog, and talk about it a bit.

• Select for the award your five favourite blogs with less than 200 followers, leaving a comment on one of their post to notify them that they have won the award. You need also to list them in your own blog.

• Enjoy the moment, knowing that you have just made someone´s day.

Of course, there is no obligation to pass on the award, but why pass up the chance to recommend 5 great sites.

Now, I seem to have come late to this one and most of my favourite's have already picked up something. However, Dr The Viking has just relaunched his blog: - still early days with our new Dux Britanithingy project, but lots to see on past projects. - Taking of Dux, Phil has a slowly, but beautifully building collection. - for a reminder of the fun part of gaming, as well as some great ideas. - Guy Halsall in good form. - Stephen May putting us all the shame with his productivity levels.
