Blog Giveaway - And the Winners Are....

Good evening!

So after publishing the list of entrants earlier today I made a little video showing the prize draw for the winners about 15 minutes ago and here we are with my first blog based video! I'm afraid it was on my phone so its not exactly cinematic quality and you have to make do with my voice throughout but it should be a giggle anyway! The video should also hopefully dispel any notion that I just picked the winners, I don't think any of you would really think that of me, but its good to show it anyway!

Behold! A video!! EDIT - turns out it was too big... I'm uploading it to youtube so I can embed it here oh the hassle..... DONE!

For those that don't have the ability to view a video on whatever format they are on the winners were:

1st - Андрей Шаронов

2nd - Dan Evans

3rd - D Power

And your prize pool to remind you what you can pick from is:

1 Forge World Magos Dominus

1 Painted Logan Grimnar

1 giant bag of bits

1 unit of 8 push fit sigmarines

1 Special character/unit (10 or less models)/monstrous creature/vehicle painted by me

1 copy of Apocalypse Warzone: Damnos OR Valedor

So congratulations to the winners, commiserations to everyone else but there is always next year I do very much hope! Incidental to one of the prizes, I was asked by several people for commission painting costs at the tournament I attended this weekend gone. Whilst this was very flattering I don't particularly see myself at that standard so they were all politely rebuffed for the time being. However I am open to being persuaded to take on a few small trial commissions at a very low price to test the waters without handling a lot of someones money.

What do you lovely folk think?

Till next time (i.e. tomorrow).

Peace out,



  1. Damn having the number 1 didn't give me lucky ;)
    Again happy b-day :)

  2. Congrats again and lucky winners enjoy your prizes.

    And Rob, if you fancy testing your commission skills for me, I have a massive wish list of wanted units. I need some Daemons for summoning purposes for starters if you want to test on those? I'll sponsor your endeavours...

    1. I'll send you an email later in the week Siph! Definitely of interest to me!

  3. Congrats to all the winners, and to rob for having such an excellent blog!

  4. What!!! I've never won anything!!! Wow! I think the dark gods helped me today. I was right calling you the best Heretic of this year!Thanks man, thank you for this prise and thank you for the Best blog about the Horus Heresy.
    P.S Андрей = Andrew.

    1. Andrew! HA! I was wondering about that :-) Congratulations on your win!

    2. Yep!...that's my name ;) Thanks!

  5. Oh...almost forgot, I choose Magos Dominus. I've been thinking of starting to collect Mechanicum , but now I have no choice :) And your blog will help me in this ;)
    Thank you!

    1. Excellent choice! Now you just have to choose the path of light or join the dark mechanicum ;) I'll send you a private message for your postal address Andrew :)

  6. Wow, I wasn't expecting this! You really shouldn't have... Thanks for the shout-out, too.

    Unless they're already snapped up, could I choose the push-fit sigmarines? My Angels Encarmine would benefit from some terminators.

    1. I'm still waiting to hear Back from Dan, but I'll send you a message on G+ when I know what he wants, as I'll need your postal address anyway! Congrats anyway :)

  7. Congratulations to all the winners. Not that I am jealous or anything.
