The "250th Post, and 4 Years" milestone giveaway!

Holy cow! I just took a gander at my post history and this is post #250. Not only that, but as of yesterday, I've been banging away at the blog for 4 years. FOUR YEARS?! How does that happen? I want to send all my readers a huge THANK YOU for all the support, comments, and constructive criticism you've given me over the years, and as a token of my appreciation, I delved into the Closet of Doom to come up with something to use for the reward for a giveaway contest! How does a brand spanking new Stormraven sound?


As part of the planning for the Heresy-Era World Eaters, I'd picked up a Stormraven kit that I was going to use for conversion fodder to make a Stormhawk. Of course, not but two weeks later, Forge World announced their Storm Eagle, and suddenly the kit I'd picked up became superfluous. So, here's the plan - 1) if you're a follower of my blog, and 2) you post a comment on this post, on Sunday night (4/22/12) I'll randomly pick out one of you fine folks and send you a brand new, on the sprue Stormraven kit (sans shrinkwrap though, as I had opened it to ensure everything was intact and correct)!

Once again, a tremendous thank you to all of you who have followed along on my meanderings through the blogosphere, and I hope to provide you with many more years of hobby goodness!

Cheers all!

Congrats, and I feel your pain about the stormraven... no sooner had I bought some chaos knight horses to stand in as thunderwolves did GW release the TW cav kits!

Great stuff Joel, keep it up. We are a few months behind, Aug is four years for weemen.blogspot.com. You've been a great partner for inspiration the whole time! Good stuff.

Admiral Drax said...

Congratulations on both counts, matey!

I know I've drawn a lot of inspiration from what you've posted over the years, and thanks for the nods back, too!

Your generosity is, I think, exceeded only by the evident coolness of your generosity.

Here's to the next 250, eh?

- Chris.

Mulciber Volcanus said...

Congrats! (And of course, great giveaway!)

Also, I'm really glad to see you joined up with Apocalypse40k forum. I've been following your work for a while now. Plus, you're the one who turned me onto Davinci's Sabre tanks, so that alone deserves thanks (now if only I can get him to sell me one!).

Karitas said...

Nice one man, I'm not far off similar milestones myself, scary times :)

I'm similarly always slightly hesitant to chukc my hat in the ring for givaways, as I never know which country people are in, (being a brit) and I dont want to be the cause of hideously high shipping expenses. so yeah, if you pull my name out o the hat, talk to me about shipping eh? :)

ColKillgore said...

Congratulations on making it to another blogging milestone. It is good to see a blog continue when so many other fall by the wayside.

James Gorman said...

As a long time lurker, it's long over due for me to give you a thumbs up for all your stuff. I reckon I should steal some of your mojo and finally start that blog I've been meaning to for the last four years. Here's to another four.

Colonel Winterborne said...

Well done on the blogging achievement. I always enjoy seeing what pre heresy madness you have created. I was having a look at some of your older posts, your guard army is very nice and you have some great posts. Congratulations!
