New Year Give Away

Back on the iPad tonight and I've looked out some stuff that I'll probably never paint in my life time.
All received with the best intensions in mind so I'm hoping some of you guys may like 1 or 2 of the items?

Not a huge haul of goodies, however if you want the chance to win an item or 2 just leave a comment on this post with your preferred items (I'll make it a limit of 5) before midnight on 10th December 2014 and the winners will be posted before Christmas 2014 (I've changed the entry cutoff date so I can get in another post or 2 before the end of the year, I didn't think that 1 through with it being my first give away). You don't have to be a follower of my blog and it doesn't matter where you are in the world. My good lady Mylene will choose the winners from a hat on the 2nd of January 2015 and I'll post the winner of each item up on my blog in the days following and I'll get in contact with you somehow then post your item/s out in the 1st couple of weeks in January, that should give the Post office time to recover from the festive madness!

Also If you feel like posting a link about my comp on your blog that would be cool however it's not required to get an entry (and will probably slim down your own chances at the same time ;0) 

No.1 is a group of robots or alien type troops in 28mm. They have received a white undercoat but not heavily and nothing that can't be removed easily. Perfect for a sci fi skirmish game, very nice figures.

No.2 are a couple of 28mm perry samurai, 1 will need a bath in simple green. Lovely figures and I finished a couple for a friend but really not my scale.

No.3 is a 28mm roman chap, he was a give away for the 1st couple of hundred arrivals to a scottish Wargames show either Kirriemuir or Claymore if I remember? A cracking figure however the David's already have 2 in their Roman army so this guy is surplus to requirement.

No.4 is an 80mm French guardsman, ahh those dreams of painting large napoleonic figures to pop in a display cabinet!

No.5 is another 28mm show give away figure this time of the Marques of Montrose I believe? I really like this figure however I have no use for him.

No.6 is a 54mm figure of Krasinski of the guard lancers, this is a lovely figure but I just don't think I'll ever paint him. 

No.7 is another give away from a show, possible Gordon of Khartoum? Might make a good pulp character? If you know who he is let me know!

No.8 Another 3 chaps with no reall place in my collection yet still very nice figures. I believe 2 are show give always from up here in Scotland and the middle chap may have been a free figure when I bought foundry paints? So 2 highlanders from different time frames and another chap all in 28mm, maybe someone will want them?

And last up No. 9 something for 15mm/18mm folks!!!! A wee load of blue moon Prussian Landwehr, these are nice little figures and are a good size comparison to AB and Old Glory however I have enough unpainted figures of both AB and OG to do me so if someone wants them then stick your name in the hat.

Ok guys, I hope some of you out there are looking for some free stuff!!!!!

Best of luck
Cheers Paul

And happy wargaming!!!

paulalba said...

Thanks for all the entries guys it's good to know that every item has at least 1 new home to go to!

I decided to change the entry cutoff date so I can get in another couple of posts before the years end.

Phil I was planning on using a Red and black FOW hat that I picked up at some point and have never worn. You want it you can have it ;0)
