An award!

Unholy gods from beyond! Nominated twice!

THE LEAD WILL WALK THE EARTH and VAMPIFANS WORLD OF THE UNDEAD both nominated me. A big thanks to the both of you. I must be doing something right... But I should stick to the rules of this nomination, which are:

To receive an award there are four steps to follow -
1. Send a thank you and a link to the nominating blog.
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Pass the word on to 10 or so other deserving blogs.
4. Let them know of your nominating them for the award.

I did this blog to show of what I was doing as well as keeping mysylf motivated. Just 6 months in and 26 followers, I still have ideas, still get inspiration from many of the blogs here and still need to paint more zombies. There are a myth roaming about in gaming halls. As soon as a gamer has painted his last miniature, not a single one left anywhere in his home that needs that second...he will die!!! I am good for a couple of centuries as I am still buying without getting through the mountain of lead and plastic...

Well 7 things I should share with you lot:

1. I have a lovely lady who lets me be the geek I am. (Although she sometimes  tell me a monster is "cute". Kind of takes something of it)
2. There are 2 pugs snooring loudly very close to me, I love my dogs. I also have 2 lizards. (Bonus info)
3. I certaintly play to have fun. No beardy list for me! On several occasions I have made scenarioes putting me up against twice the number on the other side. Now that is a challenge!
4. For a living I sell mens wear and have been doing that for about 17 years now.
5. I have never been arrested, though the police have helped me out of a public fountain where I was sleeping.
6. Speyside, I love that whiskey!!!!
7. I am absolutely no handyman!!!

The 10 nominated from me are: Yes I know he nominated me,  but he was the one who inspired me to make this blog. Very inspirational conversions! Not just zombies and he has a sense of humour. A brilliant project which has now made it into miniatures and a game. Zombie fighting in 15 mm Mr. Whiteface and company. This looks promising indeed. A good blog in my opinion. 15 mm gaming. Yes I am not constricted to one size in gaming. Worth a look. Just go look. It is a good blog.

That is it for me this time. Service will continue as normal, watch your backs out there!

  1. Congratulations, Johnny! It's so nice to see you got an award too. It's very well deserved. There seems to be some confusion about how you inform someone that they've been nominated. Do you need to send them a separate e-mail? How about leaving a comment on their blog? What about the likes of Facebook or Twitter? I got a heads up from Zerloon on Facebook. Surely that's official. Also, does mentioning the nominations on your own blog constitute being informed. After all, that's how I learned about my first three nominations.
    Finally, what happens if you don't tell anyone? Is your award then made invalid? If so, by whom? Personally, I think it's all like a chain letter, not to be taken too seriously but a fun way of acknowledging the work done by bloggers everywhere. I'm not trying to sound negative here. I love the fact that five people think my blog is worthy of an award. Even if just one person nominated me, I'd be delighted. So, wallow in your glory and I raise a toast to you and all the other award winners and nominees! Cheers!

  2. Gotta agree with Vampifan, if just one person thinks to nominates you, it makes the whole blog thing worthwhile, you know someone is taking the time to read and enjoy all the hard work and effort that you put into it. Congrats on your award and thank you for nominating me!!

  3. I have been putting a comment on their last blogpost, to those that I nominated. Best I can do.

    To recieve this clap on the shoulder is great and will fuel the fire to keep going! So do the comments you get each time you post something.

    I am getting better on commenting other blogs, not just reading them.

  4. Congratulations sir and thank you and what Vampifan says but not Ray.

  5. Ciao Johnny, Congratulations about your awards! I must admit I was feeling a little guilty in not nominating you because you're one of the most active blogging pal I have and you've got a nice little blog I always read with joy...

  6. As others have said, getting a nod for your efforts makes it all the better. I appreciate the nomination. Thank you very much.

  7. Congratulations and thank you!

  8. A well deserved award, indeed! :D

  9. I reciprocated the nomination, not because of your nomination, but rather for the energy you've shown in it all. Keep up the good work:

  10. Congrats man. It is all about showing appreciation. We're all sharing some pretty cool stuff with the community and it's ice to acknowledge that. Cheers
