I’ve always been aware that credit should be given where it is due. So when Tom Haswell messaged me this morning, to point out that my original post was incorrect. Tom co-founded the LXG with 4 others, who all contribute to the site.
Other than Belgarath97, Second Class Elitist and LXG; I’m not aware of who the other members are; however this shouldn’t detract from the contributions of the other members. If you haven’t already, check it out at League of Extraordinary Gamers.
Recently Painting Oaths, was blogged by the League of Extraordinary Gamers (LXG); a blog covering the many and varied games out there. On a recent trip to Salute, Phil Millar, creator of Painting Oaths; was interviewed by Tom Haswell (LXG Blog Owner).
The full interview can been seen here, but the reason I mention the blog, is not only because it’s a great informative read; but it also (unwittingly to me) used a number of photos of my models in the interview article. Those who read my previous post, will remember the Oath models I had already painted. All three appear in the article, which for me is a great honour; considering some of the other models that could have been used.
I’m going to open up the blog to links from any manufacturer, store or blog; that would like a link from my blog to their site. If you have a banner or logo you want displayed as well, feel free to email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scams/Spam/Porn is not acceptable, though bribes of miniatures/products are always welcome….for reviewing on the blog of course. Just like to add I’ve just added a link to Volt Ron’s blog, which I have to admit I hate him for getting to paint with Meg Maples.
Seeing as there was a blackout, I thought I would finally get around to changing my painting desk. Previously the monitor and keyboard were on the right, with the painting side on the left. I’ve swapped them over, as I have a small 3 drawer cabinet under the desk. This was making me twist uncomfortably when trying to paint.
I’ve still got to move lighting and figure out something for the paints themselves, but it’s looking and working out better. Hopefully, this change will give me the impetus to start painting again.
I have never been one for stats and figures, they either confuse me; or just put me to sleep. However in the 7 months that I have had this blog going, I have had a total of 5,876 visitors to the site. Now I am not sure, if they are unique visitors; but to all those people who have read this blog – I thank you.
I even went through the 200 post mark, without realising it; that is how attentive I am to the stats/figures. My joy comes in sharing my journeys, occasionally getting readers responding to something I post. So with 2011, drawing to a close soon; what can we expect for 2012? Hopefully lots more of the same, plus lots of new things; to add a little variety to the mix.
So to everyone one, have a great holiday season; may the New Year bring you all you hope.
