One hundred posts. We're finally here.
I started this blog as a hobby project,mainly to blow off steam by writing down random raving thoughts. Then I saw how massive the hobby community was here on the interwebz.
And then I was laid off. Hello, free time.
There are so many of you, and where possible I add to my blogroll because they're so cool that other people should see them. Admiral Drax, Tears of Envy, Stelek, Brent, Mordian 7th, B.Smoov, Ron over at FTW, Col. Corbane, Oniakki and so many others; all lights in the void. I'm glad you were out there for me to find and learn from/ogle at, guys. Way to light up the internet.
I'm an arts guy, and stats really aren't my thing, but the reigning most popular post of all time? This guy.
It's not like his ego needs any more boosting, but Grievous got 2,194 pageviews. what's more, this blog has gotten 70,554 total. Jeezus. If I had put all these damn models in an art gallery on a street somewhere, it'd be time to change the carpet. All this might be old hat to you seasoned travellers out there, but to me it's just breathtaking.
Thank you, really.
All 219+ of you.
And so, the contest. It involves this guy:
I mentioned before that I'm building a 40k-scale Knight Warden Titan for a contest over at the Adeptus Mechanicus Forums. He needs a nice, Titan-y sounding name. All you have to do is come up with a name for him and post it in the comments section of this post before March 19. What's the prize?
Why, it's a sprue of Shock Troops from the by now famous Wargames Factory range. You've seen them in this space before. I will slip them in a padded envelope and mail them to the winner.
I also want to take a minute to remember our friends in Japan. I'm sure you all know about the recent calamity. They're having real tough time right now and can use your prayers and support. Let's all keep a good thought for them, and help out where we can. As a testament to the enduring spirit of Japan, the Gundam statue in Shizuoka is still standing. There have been pictures going around of it toppled at the knees, but these are from when it was taken down for renovation the first time.
So that wraps up post 100, and here's to the next 100.
PS: Yes, I know I missed Old Stuff Day, but life gets in the way, so I hope the Grievous pic makes up for it.
PPS: Yes, I drew that mecha girl at the top. She was meant for another 100th-something project, years ago, but I ended up using something else, so she just stayed in limbo until now. Hope you like her.
