Lets try a Give Away

I have hit some large milestones (for me anyway) and it seems appropriate to give something back. But what to give away? What would anyone want? Well lets start with Figures.

First Up:
I have an unpainted copy of the Original 28mm Sharp and Harper figures that were distributed with the Sharp Practice rules. Beautiful figures.

What do you have to do?

1 Entry for commenting here. Multiple comments do not count, just the first.
1 Entry for being a follower of this blog
1 Entry for posting about this somewhere else and copying the link into your comment.

Second Item Up for Grabs
A packet of 15mm armor. This is a mystery box that has some new and unopened items as well as some assembled and primed 15mm armor. There may even be a painted item. This includes but is not limited too, 2 Battlefront Panther Tanks and a new unopened Marmon Herrington Armored Car. There will be no less than 5 vehicles in the box and may contain up to 10.

To get this one, you have to complete a scavenger hunt. I will post four different clues. Post the name of the post in a comment or e-mail me. I will draw from the correct entries. So what are you looking for?

1) The name of the ship that I had commissioned for my Italian Coastal Patrol fleet?
2) What was the name of my great Uncle who served in WWI?
3) What are the names of the two AWI books that I wrote?

I actually had several others that I was going to ask but it seems that you can only search back to August 2009. Not sure why that is.

Last Item
A copy of each of the scenario books that I sell off of this blog. That is both WWII air campaigns, the ACW book and In the Name of Roma.

The rules for this one are simple, if you tried the others and did not win, you could still win this.

When?
Well you have till my birthday on October 7th.

  12. Have fun with the giveaway. I've promoted it over at http://diplomatist2.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/wednesday-welcome-and-odds-and-ends.html

    While it isn't a comment on the quality of the prizes, I won't be entering the draw. So I'll take a leaf from Gary's book - distribute my points to the first person not called Ray who posts the url of you sales page as a comment to my promo post.

  13. Very generous offer Chris, I'm entering just to lessen jammy Ray's chances of winning ;)

    Put my down for the scenario books please. If I don't win then I'm still going to buy the Name of Roma book.

    Prove of my promo:

    You will do the draw yourself and not the Ray drawing program? Then count me in for the Sharp (my avatar lookalike :-D) and Harper figures.
