Welcome new followers and its competition time!

Hi Guys

Just wanted to say a quick welcome to the new people who have joined this blog. Great to have you here.

Now i know ive been a little quiet on this blog but that's because ive been working on a lot of stuff on my main blog as i am getting ready to start contract painting again. I'm learning how to do youtube videos and ive been revamping the blog with pricing structures (all of which should go live within the next day or so.

Anyways on to the competition!

I want to get more people looking at my content so i figured a small competition might be a nice way to attract some more followers.

So onto the details: what im going to do to coincide with the relaunch of my miniature painting service is paint up a single figure on a small diorama like base to the very best standard i can. The level i would do if entering a Golden Daemon or other well known painting comp. The miniature may have upwards of 20 hours spent on it (if not more!!). Once done it will be nicely packaged in a box for safety.  I'm going to give it to one of my blog followers including shipping it to them track and trace anywhere in the world at my own expense as a thank you for watching my blog and also as a way to show what im capable of producing.

Whats the catch - there isn't one! (well there sort of is).  There wont be a winner announced until this blog gets to at least 50 followers (After all its the point of the competition right. :).

Now im going to run a similar competition on my other blog as well so if you signed up on both you have a chance to win two miniatures (and they will be totally different subjects). For this blog i think its fitting that i do up a metal confederate soldier by Perry miniatures. I'm thinking of having him walking along a path following a fence line - or something along those lines.

Now what do you need to do - not much, just help spread the word about the competition, my blog and painting business. Once that Blogger followers counter hits 50, i'll randomly generate a number for each follower and get the computer to pick who is going to win the model. Simple right.

Now it might happen quickly, it might take a while - or it might never happen. no matter what the case is im still going to paint the model and will blog about it and possibly use it as a subject matter for youtube videos.

Anyways welcome once again to my new followers and id love to hear what you guys think about the competition.

Till next time, hope you all have a great week.
