Anticipation: Give-Aways, Kickstarters, Tournaments, Miniatures WIP

Anticipation... So many things are making me wait. And none of them are about Ketchup.

Hey, James... if you take the bottle cap off it just might speed things up.  Just a thought.
Yes, I can't hear the word 'Anticipation' without hearing that Carly Simon song.
And Yes, I can't hear that Carly Simon song without thinking of the ketchup ad.. that should date me.
I doubt it's what she was actually anticipating, but then, anticipating those royalty checks probably didn't hurt.

So what am I anticipating?

For one, Give-Aways are coming up!

The Canister & Grape blog is celebrating 50k hits with 3 potential prizes (no ketchup).
It ends Wed. Aug 28th, but you know how time zones & date lines can catch you unawares, so don't delay!
The blog has a lot of updates on Saga, so there should be a lot of fun stuff to see there.

Andy's Wargame Blog celebrates 100k hits with a chave to win a nice Romano-Brit character (no ketchup)
Who wouldn't like a nice general for their troops?


My own Give-Away, celebrating 200k hits ends next Sunday.
With a definite 3 prizes out of a pool of 11 (no ketchup) with the possibility of more winners as more entries are in, so people jumping in may increase your chances of winning, not lessening it.


If you don't like winning free stuff, there's still other things to anticipate..

The Chaos Cup is less than two weeks away!
That means I'll soon be revealing The Psychedelic Furs, Beastmen Blood Bowl team.  Painting progress has been being made, and it looks like the team will be done in time! And afterwards, expect a lot of Game Reports.

Kickstarters! 

I'll soon have the Dwarf & Ogre musketeers, due sometime in September.
I also have a secret additional faction I've sourced from another company, to be used with them.
It should all make a great thematic skirmish project.

All Quiet on the Martian Front had their backer survey released, and though I'd lost my original record of what add-on's I intended, i think I reconstructed it pretty well, maybe better.  I went in deep.  I'll look forward to the days with the airbrush and painting a whole lot of tanks & tripods!  I don't know how they'll meet their December expected delivery, but the progress they're making will be worth the wait even if it takes longer.

Dreadball Season 3 is around the corner. I simply forgot and missed the last survey deadline, so I hope I'll be content with what I originally ordered.  It probably saved me from getting more so maybe that's ok.
The Zee's (ape) team looked better than I had thought from the concept art, but still too much armor coverage, so just as well: I'll be converting my own.

Other Projects

The Doctors are ready to show, pending client approval. They were a lot of fun to paint. Show them soon

Around the corner are some very special Nazgul, a Pig Blood Bowl team, a couple more Blood Bowl teams, some Hordes, and hopefully some time to find for Brokentooth's Goblins, including a review & tutorial for a very big miniature, and the Muppet Saga & War of Ashes project, and get back to my Prehistoric Pulp project.

And what's this?
W.I.P. 
You'll find out soon.


Get in for some give-aways, and enjoy all the anticipation that the summer hobby crop has sewn.

It certainly is a great time for free stuff, looking forward to the draws!

Anne said...

Believe it or not, I have 2 Dreadbowl teams to paint. Don't know when I'll get to them though.

You've got a full painting table and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your Bloodbowl teams.

Nothing like competitions to pique the interest.

Melanie said...

Looks like all the cool people are having giveaways, eh??

Laughing Ferret said...

Thanks for the comments all :)

Anne, if I could get down to just a full painting table it'd be a miracle. I have a full room of items to be painted, and that doesn't include the terrain-potential in the garage. When I die I will have a lot of stuff left over.

Melanie, is your contest still going? That's another one if so, I was focused on minis on my mind when writing this...

but if anyone *does* want ketchup (I don't have any, and it's lousy for painting minis anyway), better chance to get some with the twinkies & more Melanie's contest is giving away!
