200th post giveaway!!!

So, I have written 200 posts on this blog, and I'm going to celebrate it by having a giveaway. Naturally it's just a blatant sham to get more followers and rid myself of some junk from the lead- and plastic mountain that I'm never going to use, right? Well, let's see. I think I have dug out some rather tasty morsels from the pile.

The rules are simple.

  1. You must be a follower of my blog. (See, blatant sham, I told you.)
  2. You must leave a comment on this post, saying that you are in and which of these you would like, in order of preference if it matters. (It's okay to want them all, but you are only going to get one of the lots.)
  3. Mentioning my blog and this draw on your blog, Facebook, Google+ or something similar will get you a bonus entry into the draw. Please leave a link so I can check it out. If it's on your own blog I might follow you back if I'm not already a follower. (You can only get one bonus entry mainly because I can't count further, but feel free to mentioning this draw as many times as you like.)
  4. If you commented on my previous post about depression, I will give you another bonus entry. It's too late to go back and comment now though, I want to say thanks to those who read it and offered their thoughts and support. Thanks guys!
  5. You must get your entry in on midnight Christmas Eve (central european time) at the latest. I will be drawing the winners on the 25th of december. 
That's that, now on to the loot! I hope some of it will appeal to you.




The 40k loot. Comissar Yarrick and a box of Shock Troopers from Wargames Factory.
The first entry is an old metal Comissar Yarrick from Games Workshop and a box of 18 plastic Shock Troops from Wargames Factory. The box is a bit squashed since the mailman jumped on it, but the contents are unharmed and still on sprues. I will probably get rid of the box and just send the sprues in a jiffy bag.

The first WW2 loot. A Sherman M4A1 and Sturmgeshütz IV.
Next up we have two plastic kits, a Sherman and StuG IV in 1/72 scale from Revell. They are from a diorama kit and originally had some infantry with them, but they are long since gone. I was going to do Ardennes but I realised that Shermans are boring. I'm listing them together as their instructions are in the same booklet. No decals though, sorry.

A Lorraine artillery observation vehicle in 20mm scale.
Next up we have a 20mm Lorraine Beobachtungs vehicle in resin and metal. It's from the new 20mm zone brand from Early War Miniatures. I think it's an old skytrex kit that has been remastered and remoulded. Bit of a rare vehicle, something for the 21st Panzer division player.

Hasegawa Humber Armoured car.
Next up a british Humber Armoured car in 1/72, by Hasegawa. Plastic kit, still in box, still in shrinkwrap. (That's why it's so shiny.)

15mm PSC halftracks and Battlefront german infantry.
From 20mm we go to 15mm and a box of Plastic Soldier Company SdKfz 251/D halftracks, suitable for late WW2. Note that there's only four vehicles left in the box since I built one. Along them is a platoon or so of german infantry from Battlefront, meant for Flames of War. They have a few years on them so they are not the latest release, but I don't know if it's a good thing or not. They do include bases but I don't know if they are enough for the figures.

A pair of Systema Gaming Scenery power generator... thingies.
Last, but not least, one lucky punter will get a pair of Power Generators from Systema Gaming Scenery. This come as kit of laser cut acrylic and MDF. You can choose if you want orange, blue or green acrylic. Please note that whoever wins this item will have to wait a little while longer, as I have to order them first. (Yes, they will be brand new and not from my stash!) In the meantime you can read my review of them here.

Good luck everyone and I hope you will be here for my next 200 posts...

    I'm already a follower on your blog since many month (but you don't follow mine TT) and I support it on google+ ^^

    Personnally I'm very interested by the pair of power Generators !! (Please little Santa Klaus/Leif, don't forget my little christmas bag XD).

    Coincidence : I organised a little contest too (due to 60 000 visitors) ad I offer some GW collectors :

    Put me in the running for the StuG and Sherman batch, please.

    SvaraRadera
  7. Me, me, me... ;-) Since Thomas wants the Sherman and the Stug, I'll just go for the Humber. Any excuse to start a new theatre, right?

    Plugged at my rather inactive blog: http://dalemunk.blogspot.se/2013/12/figure-fanatics-giveaway.html, and I'll also +1 it to Google+ and FB (once I figure out how ;-))

    1. Oh, dear, what have I done :-)

      Thanks, Koen.

  8. Good one Leif. 200 posts is nothing to sneeze at!

    Glad to see another giveaway, but count me out due to the distances involved.

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. Don't worry about that, Paul. The postage costs are flat outside Europe and Laffes money is better spend sending toys to beyond Oz than buying more toys for himself anyway! ;-)

      Radera
    2. Thomas is right Paul, so don't let the distance scare you.

      Radera
    3. Oh okay you twisted my arm!

      That Lorraine looks way too interesting to pass up!

    1. Huh, I had the followers gadget installed, but it seems like it has stopped working. And now I can only add a followers on G+ gadget. Strange.

      Thanks for the congratulations.

      Radera
    2. Laffe, glad you got this working as I have been able to follow, and my apologies for not adding you sooner but now you know why..
