The Legatus' Quarter of a Million views win a Salute figure competion!




Well, I have been thinking of what to offer as a prize for my 250,000 views of the blog competition.  Some people paint a figure as a prize but I can't imagine anyone would want one of my blotchy efforts, especially when many people who follow this blog can really paint.  

Anyway, given the proximity to Salute, I have decided to offer one of the official Salute figures as an (unpainted) prize.  These sit around in their little bags for years afterwards and I never paint them so it's  much better to send one to someone who really wants one (perhaps because they couldn't get to Salute).  Oh and because many of you will have most of these figures, as another option I am including the War and Conquest rules free figure which is a representation of the figure on the cover of the rule book.

I will offer the winner (I'm not doing second and third prizes because I don't expect many entries) their choice of the figures I have available.

So, lets look at the potential prizes.  All the pictures are illustrative only, my figures are still bagged and unpainted.




Salute 2006  Arthur and Mordred sculpted by Mark Copplestone




Salute 2007  Glorfindel and Lord of the Nazgul from Mithril Miniatures Lord of the Rings range.



Salute 2010 a Black Scorpion girl and Robot figure sculpted by Adam Clarke




Salute 2012 A Mayan chief sculpted by Jacques-Alexandre Gillois of Miniature Studio.




Salute 2013 A plastic Jason (of the Argonauts) figure from Renedra sculpted by Steve May.



Salute 2014  D-Day Colin Maud figure based on the film The Longest Day by Michael Perry.




War and Conquest figure.

All you have to do is post a message to this blog entry and say which figure you would like if you win.  The names will go into a hat on and will be drawn by my glamorous assistant.  Actually, I don't have a glamorous assistant.  Charlotte will have gone back to Edinburgh by then so you will have to make do with the Old Bat.

The draw will be made on May 4th, Star Wars Day (and Charlotte's birthday), which will just give me time to post it before I disappear to South America.  Oh, and it doesn't matter where you live.  I will send it anywhere in the world.

Tell your friends, but you have to be a follower of the blog!  There will be another prize when I hit 150 followers!

  13. I noticed that for some reason I wasn't following your blog but I have been visiting it for a while now along with your other blogs. Congratulations on the milestone! I would also like to enter the give-away for the Mayan chief.

    Cheers!

  14. Hedlius Legatus, Ave!

    The Imperator's friends have sent a warning - a man of your popularity may be seen as a threat! Imagine being sent permanently to the Falkland Islands. Or worse to Newark, New Jersey as your next posting.... At least you might still have access to the Internet although crweating your blog on a wax tablet might be a bit difficult.

    In any case, Colin Maud has been a hero of mine and if my nomen should be withdrawn by the Domina of your manor it wold be a fine addition to my D-day force.

    Lastly, three hobby related things. First, your completion of the Roman galley was superb. Great color and vibrancy! Second, please remember that the Alamo has a slightly pinkish tone to the adobe. Legend has it that the original friars insisted that the Indian laborers and Spanish soldiers mix a bit of lamb's blood with the mud as they were doing the original construction. Finally you would not go wrong in using some of the sombrero wearing figures from the Foundry - the ones with muskets - for some of themost recently raised troops that had to march north from Mexico with Santa Ana. From what I have been able to gather, they wore their white and tan peon clothing with a poncho for warmth and a sombrero for their head over. Not all of the Foundry figures in the packs would be useful but some might provide a nice touch of variety.

  16. Just stopping by to say congratulations on the page views. As we don't know one another, it feel it would be bad form to ask for anything.

    PS. You don't appear to have a follower button on your blog.

    2. For some reason, on my computer, I can only see the word Follower, but there is nothing underneath that. I've come back a few times to see if it will sort itself out, but it hasn't. Anyway, in the meantimes, I'll put your blog on my blogroll, so I can at least read you when you post.

  22. Hail Legatus congratulations on your conquest of the blogosphere. If the Imperator gives you a choice choose the Falkland Islands I've seen a great deal of Newark. Truth be told all of these Salute miniatures look wonderful but should I win please send me 2007.
