An award you say!

This award(Liebster award ) has been going around the blogs of late and I'm very honoured that Andrew from Lokis Great Hall liked my blog enough to nominate it. You really should visit his very nice blog and if you really like things Viking you will be right at home! 

The rules of the award are:
- "Copy and paste" the award on your blog, and talk about it a bit.
- post a link back to the blogger who gave you the award
- 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 the award, but it is a good deed really.

Normally this award is supposed to go to blogs with fewer then 200 followers of which I have more, but Loki decided to play in character of  his blog title and ignore that part and nominate me any ways of which I'm grateful .:-) However, in the spirit of the original intent behind the award I'll take this opportunity to nominate some lovely blogs that have fewer then 200 followers, but really should have more. 

Blenheim to Berlin- Bill has some truly great battle reports with some awesome tables. Often lists orders of battles and rules additions. Covers a wide range of periods and rules with some good insight. Battles range from mid to epic in size.

 Dreispitz.blogspot-A personal friend of mine and very nice painter. If Seven Years War is your thing then this is a place to visit. He likes the period so much he's even started his own figure line! He does other periods as well so please give him a visit.

The Doc's Miniatures- This person can really put paint on a miniature beautifully and is must see. He took a long pause in posting , but has started up recently and I hope he continues to do so.

Moiterei's bunte Welt- This fine chap I've had the pleasure to meet and a very fine painter indeed with topics covering Dark Ages and WWII with more planned.

Tobi's Paint Pot- Another very nice blog with some great figure painting and terrain plus some good ideas and tutorials.

Others I wanted to mention, but know they have already have been given awards Crac des Chevaliers, Großbeeren 1813, L'antre de Jehan, Sgt Steiner's Wargaming blog, The Leutnants Diary, Wargaming with Silver Whistle, Tarty's Tin, 28mm Victorian Warfare and several others! Please don't feel slighted if I didn't mention you as your either over 200 or if under 200 the list would get to be unmanageable so everyone  please go over my blog list as all are more then worthy of your attention!
