200,000 Hit Giveaway!



I kinda thought this would come next month rather then this month, but only 7 months after reaching 100,000 hits, the blog has now clocked up 200,000 hits! Indeed in the past couple of months I've had to switch to Photobuckets subscribed service as the monthly bandwidth has been regularly scrapeing and on a couple of occasions well exceeding the 10GB monthly limit for their free service something I certainly never expected to be dealing with (and yes that'll be comming out of the hobby fund as I refuse to use ads!)

As a celebration of sorts and too test the waters in the world of Blog Giveaways, something a number of the blogs I frequent have recently started to carry out semi-regularly, I've delved into my bottomless pit and pulled forth a prize - a Limited Edition Blister of Two Cadian Imperial Guardsmen at Ease.



For your chance to claim it all you need to do is post a comment following this article and to be a Follower of the blog, using the widgit which can be found towards the bottom of the right hand column, the winner will be picked using random.org on Monday 14th September at around 18:00GMT, if the case of multiple comments left by the same poster only the first comment will be eligable.

If all goes well with this giveaway there will be more in the future in line with a couple of up comming product reviews.

Thanks for reading!

Congratulations on the mile stone!! and a 2nd congratulations on not using ads, I have always seen them as a hindrance and eye sore.

Ranger Rob said...

Congrats!...(Note to self add hit counter to my blogs).

Those 2 Cadians would look great as bodyguards...or maybe add them to my Inqusitor Lord's retinue.

I've been a fan of your blog for awhile. Your guard have been an inspiration for my Mordians (AKA The Imperial Navy)

Congrats on the 200K hits. Not surprising, given the quality of posts here.
Here I've been keeping up with your log without following it. That's now fixed.

Tristan said...

Who doesn't need IG soldiers standing around doing nothing - the possibilities are endless!! ;)

Ranma said...

Congrats eh

Drathmere said...

Congrats! I hadn't thought the warhammer 40k community was so active, but I guess it is. Having great content certainly helps.

pete dowling said...

200,000 hits is amazing. The giveaway is a great idea. If I ever get just 200 hits, I'll probably give away an epic scale guardsman!

Kevin said...

Wow, 200,000 hits, eh? Very impressive. Your blog is very inspirational!

I hope random.org picks me for the prize :D

Congratulations on the impressive number of hits; I'd definitely say you must be doing something right to warrant this amount of attention. The army looks great, keep it up!

Freddie said...

Those two guardsmen would look nice in my new Foleran King's Guard, perhaps as the King's personal bodyguards!

Congrats on the achievement. I enjoy your blog, even though I'm not a guard player, but it does help me think outside the box with my own army.

Cheers!
