250,000 Hits!!! and a Prize




Just a quick Thank You to all you Gamers and bloggers out there, who over the
 last 20 odd months have taken their life in their own hands and visited this strange little world of Ray,
and helped it to 250,000 Hits!!!
Hopefully you'll all still come and visit again??
Note the 2012/13 Championship winners shirt above........fingers crossed!

And now to the give-away, quite simple really all you've gotta do is be a follower of my blog,
then comment below, saying you'd like to enter, if you post on your blog, giving a link back about my giveaway you get another entry into the draw.

So to the prize, now don't get too over-exited, its not all that!!!

If the winner sends me either 5, 20mm figures, 5 25mm figures or 12, 15mm figures, 
from any period or even Fantasy (cough!), I'll paint them up and send them back for free!!

Now I'm not the worlds best painter, but free is free!!!
The competition will close 1 week from the start date. So that's July 2nd at 1930 GMT

Cheers and good luck!

  8. Seems the "Chronicles" have a long way to go to achieve this level of excellence...As for the competition, I'd love to participate, but postage cost would sort of make it a pointless exercise.
    Anyway, you're linked in my "Inspiration section"
