Liebsters – Hate ’em – but Thanks

Actually it’s chain letters that I hate; but as Graham Evans, (thanks Graham), gave me a mention on the Liebster Award without telling me that his Great Aunt in South Africa has recently passed away, mentioned me in her will and needs my bank account details, I have no grounds to be curmudgeonly.

1. Why did you start blogging?
Much easier than updating a website that Virgin kept throttling.

2. If you could change one thing about the wargaming hobby, what would it be?
The minority aversion to soap and speciality men’s grooming products, such as toothpaste.

3. What is best in life?
Oh God! Another Emmy Award opportunity to forget to mention the one person who is going end up putting on the Pouty Bat Face.


Nobody else cares that I love my Wife, Mother and Friends. I’m certainly not going to confess to any obsessive addiction to computer games or studying obscure ailments of the lower limb, or beer, or WarHamster 40p, or fast women. It has to be kayaking!

4. Do you want to live forever?

When the planet is engulfed in firey ashes, you will still not have started the first measurable picofraction of your existence. Does the questioner not understand how infinity works?


5. Fame or fortune?
I’m already infamous as Gale Porter’s stunt double.

6. What miniatures are you most proud of having painted?
The Airfix LEM that used to sit in the entrance lobby of Frederick Gough Grammer School back in 1969.

7. How do you deal with burn out?
Fresh fuel and firelighters. 

Leningrad Cowboys8. Why is a raven like a writing desk?
Because writing desks clearly also like to hang about by motorways pecking out the eyes of roadkill.


9. Star Wars or Star Trek?
Babylon 5.

10. If you could only buy from one miniature company from now on, which one would it be?
Spencer Smith. But it’s hypothetical, so I’m going to carry on purchasing from Peter Pig, PSC, Zvezda and all the others.

11. What is your favourite takeaway?

Frikadelle mit Pommes und Mayo bitte – kein Senf.

Most everyone else already has been nominated. That’s the problem of coming in at the end of these pyramid nomination schemes. Instead, I’ve updated my sidebar a little … enjoy
