Liebster Award. An Award, forsooth!

The Liebster Award

I have been awarded an award... twice!  Far out!

My thanks to Gowan Ditchburn and to Mike the Mad Padre.
I do appreciate your comments in re this blogspot.

Now, of course, I must reciprocate in some way.  Let's see what the instructions had to say:

"- Copy and paste the award on your blog linking it to the blogger who has given it to you.
- Pass the award to your top 5 favourite blogs with less than 200 followers by leaving a comment on one of their posts to notify them that they have won the award and listing them on your own blog.- Sit back and bask in that warm fuzzy feeling that comes with knowing that you have just made someone's day!- There is no obligation to pass this on to anyone else but it is nice if you do."

I like the sitting back and basking, bit... 

Now, I appreciate that there is an element of 'chain letter' to this exercise, but I've decided to take it at face value for what it's worth: some positive feedback from appreciative readers, and to acknowledge the enjoyment given me by the blogsters I've mentioned below.  Of course, these are just a few of many blogspots that have given me entertainment, inspiration and food for thought over the last two or three years.

Here are 5 of my favorites that I do not believe have yet received the Liebster Award:
Kingdom of Katzenstein - especially his Imagi-Nation: Kingdom of Katzenstein;

- Gonsalvo at Blunders on the Danube - for a blog chock full of interest and useful info;

- Paul of Pauly Wauly's Wargames Blog in particular his well presented 18th Century Imaginations, but check out Pauly Wauly's Other Blogspot as well;

- Andrew of Random and Creative - an engagingly original extempore approach to wargaming;

- ...and Phil Olley for his Classic wargaming - for mine, a very nostalgic roam among the Classics of the wargame genre: Young & Lawford's Charge! and Charles Grant's The War Game.

Meanwhile, I'm still putting together the next instalment of the Ulrichstein campaign as it unfolded in  the Europeia of the Wholly Romantic Empire...  


  1. your welcome my friend... I wish I had not read this post though now I am following even more blogs... it will take me hours to look at all the posts now :-P

    well done and those are some interesting sites. really useful for my new era also. I think they will come in handy

    1. It's a problem I have, and all. This is the problems ought to be: pleasantly problematic.

  2. Congratulations and many thanks for the nomination. Now I'm wondering which blogs I follow were not yet awarded.

  3. Not easy, I agree, and will get harder further down the track. I did a bit of research into this, but in the end had to guess to some extent that my nominees had yet to receive one.
