500 posts = Mega Blog Giveaway

No1 Hasslefree - Michelle & Pals

Well my 500th post has been and gone, infact No 500 was the collection of Salute photos that
 I posted last week. 
And as a seem to win my fair share of Blog Giveaway's (I'm sure some of you will agree??)
Talking of which here's my latest win from Nate over at 
Cheers Nate!!

I thought it was about time I did another, since my last was back in 2013. Now some of these bits and bobs were going on ebay, but I thought I'd share them with you lovely lot!!!

2. Comment as to which items you'd like to win.
3. Also in your comment I'd like a link to one of your favourite posts from my

4. If you want to pimp the Giveaway on your own blog, let me know after you've done it and I'll add your name in twice for each item you want to win.
5. Closing date is Friday 15th May at 12 o'clock.

  3. Hoi Ray,

    First of: congrats on reaching the fabulous Five OO, quite an achievement! You really want me to choose one post I like best? I'd rather tell you what I like so much about your blog in it's entirety.
    - First the tales about all the Rejects characters; it really feels like we get to know you all, well a bit at least...
    - The humour with which you write your posts is very funny and agrees with me a lot. The bickering to and fro with Anne and Fran, back in the Good Ole Days is dearly missed and makes your blog so great.
    - Your comments and replies on this blog (and on my own at that) is much appreciated as well!
    - last but certainly not least I like the way in which you provide background information, flags and colourschemes for the units you've painted through the years.

    If I get picked you can choose whatever prize you want I have no preference.
    Now on to the next 500 posts!

    Cheers Sander

  5. Congrats Ray. I think my favourite blog post of yours has to be a joint one with Fran, where you asked the 10 questions. I still think about some of those questions and wonder if you will do another 10 questions. I hope you do

    I will not pimp your blog! Not that I do not like you or indeed you blog but I am sure that anyone who looks at my blog must already look here.

    Should I win anything I will suggest;

    no5,no6 or no7

    As all being something I can or will use.
    Cheers Mate.

    1. Opps 20 questions (I had my shoes on)!

    2. We did plan to do another set of questions, we even wrote them all down, somehow we never posted them though??? Not sure why, Fran may still have the next lot of questions??

      Delete
  6. Many congrats, Ray and what a great idea for your giveaway prizes.

    If I win I'd like any of 1, 4, 5, 9, 10 or 14.

    My favourite post of yours was this one -
    http://onelover-ray.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/20-questions-for-reject-ray.html
    where you and Fran answered twenty questions. It inspired me to answer them and it was loads of fun to do. I'd like to re-answer the questions at some point as quite a few answers will change.

    All the best.

    I don't have any one favourite post on your blog, so I can't do that part. what I will do is say that I always find your AARs entertaining and following your progress on long term painting projects (like your 9YW stuff) is a pleasure.

    Consider yourself pimped at http://singlehandedadmiral.blogspot.ca/2015/05/shameless-pimiping-and-plugging.html
    Put me down for items 3, 8, 9, and 10 please. My fave post would be last month's blogger meet up at Salute.
    Cheers, PD

  60. I'm in and will gladly accept whatever the fates deem me worthy of. I'll also be in the UK the week of May 18th and, therefore, can save you the postage if I win some wonderful prize from your erudite and selfless generosity. I've also been known to buy a round or two after a win (I think that last bit borders on bribery - so be it, one man's "bribery" if another's simple gesture of appreciation)

    As for my favorite post it very recent - the 2015 blogger metope. It's fun to put faces to names - well except with you...

    Crap, I may have just lost all the obsequious goodwill I tried to create.

    Lastly, here a link to the post on my blog:

  65. Dear Ray! I congratulate you for your amazing effort!
    What I like in your blog is that I feel your love of the subject. If I really have to choose articles, as I'm a fan of sci-fi and fantasy miniatures, it's the cute mouse witch ( http://onelover-ray.blogspot.fr/2012/08/rousell-v-oleary-big-one.html ), and the Doctor with Amy ( http://onelover-ray.blogspot.fr/2011/09/dr-and-pond.html ) because it's the Doctor, with Amy :)
    Put me in for No1 no2 no5 no6 no9 no11 no 12 no 13 no14 no 16 no 17 no 18 please! Thank you very much!

  66. It's not a Give Away ! it's Christmas !
    Honesty, I do not want something in all your (nice!) gifts ... Better to let my place for other guys.
    Since too many time, I'm not a faithful follower...
    But consider that I'm always somewhere with you !
    Congratulations and thanks for your generosity, Ray, you're a good man !

  67. First off congratulations on the milestone. Reading yours and Fran's blogs is part of what got me into this whole mess. So let's get this rolling.

    1. Already done.

    2. I would like to put my name in for 18, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 4, 6 and 14. I have reasons for each of them, but I'm sure you'll just call me a greedy git :-)

    3. My favorite post, of many is http://onelover-ray.blogspot.com/2013/11/blog-con-day-2-return-of-badger.html I really wish I could have been there for a pint and crap Chinese food.

    4. I promoted it at http://seanswgcorner.blogspot.com/2015/05/colony-87-cardboard-warriors-and-rays.html

    5. Got it in on the 13th. I thought it would be later.

    Thanks again for showing us how it's done.
