My funny little blog has attracted 200 highly intelligent and discerning people to take part in my endless toy soldier meanderings. It time to celebrate! Knowing that you lovely folk actually spend your time reading the badly spelled and poorly edited thoughts of middle aged miniature enthusiast fills my heart with satisfaction and even the little bit of joy that my grumpy scots genes will allow.
It's become traditional around here to celebrate another milestone in the number of followers the Leadpile has gained by giving away a figure to one of you lovely people.
Thing is, last time, I offered to do this but failed miserably. The responsible one was the very kind man who won the draw last June but this event coincided with a massive dry patch in my painting. It's something we all go through from time to time but the need to do a figure for the give became psychologically wrapped up in the period and I've never gotten round to doing a figure for the responsible one. So, apologies of the most humble kind and time to rectify this heinous of crimes.
Below you will see two figures. I've emailed the Responsible one and offered him the choice of figure to become the one he should have received 9 months ago.
The first is radical inquisitor, a bit of nasty old psychic, hellbent on enforcing the emperors rule any way he see's fit. Xenos weaponry and psychic powers are all useful tools for defeating the enemies of man. I always saw him as making his home on some medieval planet where he could keep down any mutants or psychics from his eerie home atop some distant tower. Sneaking off planet when a mission arrived with little patience for mainstream imperial law enforcement.
Thankyou. The best part of this mad little hobby is getting to know all the other people out there who do this mad thing as well. Your continued interest in what goes on in the messy little back room of my house is the best motivation for ensuring the lead pile gets some paint thrown at it. Cheers, I'll be having Whisky in your honour tonight (after all the kids are in bed obviously).
