The Big '2 Million Hits' Prize Draw


BigLee's Miniature Adventures has reached a milestone I never thought it would achieve (not when I started anyway). A few minutes ago my Blog had its 2 millionth page view!

To see the number on the screen is mind boggling, especially as I started writing just for my own amusement. I'd like to pretend that I knew it would last and be as popular as it has, but the reality is that never in my wildest dreams did I think that a) I'd still be writing it seven years later or b) it would rack up 2 Million Hits! Thank you to everyone that has visited but especially those regular readers and contributors that make this such an enjoyable experience for me. 


As a huge thank you to all my readers and wargaming buddies out there I thought I would pull out the stops for a proper prize draw give-away. I've squirrelled away some cash and will be giving away £100 worth of vouchers across three lucky winners.
  • First Prize : A Warlord Games Gift voucher worth £50 
  • Second Prize : A Warlord Games Gift voucher worth £25 
  • Third Prize : A Warbases gift voucher worth £25  



The Rules: 
  • You must be either an existing follower of this Blog, or sign up as a new one, in order to enter. 
  • You need to leave a comment on this post to qualify. 
  • Only one entry per person, so multiple comments won't count as multiple entries! 
  • Each entrant may only win one prize. 
  • If you pimp this Give-away on your own Blog you'll earn yourself five bonus entries in addition to your initial entry but only if you post a link to it in a comments below (just to make it easier for me to verify). 
  • The closing date for entries will be 12:00 midday (GMT) on Sunday 4th September and I will post a final comment saying it has closed so that it is clear who got their hat in the ring on time and who didn't. 
  • All entries (including bonus entries) will be randomised to generate the winners using the list randomiser available on the random.org website. 
  • I'll announce the winners in a separate post and will do my best to notify the winners in person where possible. 
  • The winners will be asked for their email addresses and full names so I can purchase their prize vouchers and have them emailed to the winners. 

Ok, that's it for now. All that remains is for me to say a big thank you to everyone for following my Blog over the last seven and a half years and to wish you all the best of luck in the competition.

UPDATE: 12:01 - OK folks the competition is closed. I'll make the draw shortly and post the results in a separate post later today. Thanks for all the entries, and good luck to everyone that took part.

  30. Thank you to everyone that has already thrown their hat in the ring for this prize draw and thanks for reading my blog. Without you I'd just be talking to myself.... and the wife says I do enough of that already. Of course I'm not talking to myself (that would just be silly) I'm actually muttering words of encouragement to my little soldiers. Much more sensible I think you'll agree.
