Miniature Wargames with Battlegames 396

I subscribe to Miniature Wargames with Battlegames (MWBG) and always look forward to receiving it in the post before it hits the shops. I subscribe to several magazines electronically but there is something quite enjoyable about getting a real life magazine in your hands to read and enjoy. In fact my copy is part of my holiday reading material, and means that internet connection or not I can keep up with the latest goings on in the hobby.

This month I opened my copy and was amazed and thrilled to see my Blog reviewed in the Blogs of the Month column. The write up was very complimentary and most unexpected. Fellow Reject Ray Rousell also had his blog Don't Throw a One reviewed so we are both 'tickled pink' by the recognition from the editor Henry Hyde. Henry is a very well respected luminary in our hobby and I consider it high praise indeed when he gives you the thumbs up! 

While still on a high from this surprise I turned to the Salute Show guide that is included in this issue. I have just bought my eTicket for Salute and am looking forward to the biggest event in my hobby calender. For those that don't know the whole centre section of the magazine is a pull out guide to this years event. Copies are also given out to all the visitors to the show so the circulation is not insignificant. So it was with great surprise (and, I admit, a childish squeal of delight) that I discovered an attributed copy of one of my pictures from last years event featuring in the introduction. 

To say that I am 'well chuffed' at getting two mentions in the hobbies premier wargaming magazine would be an understatement. Of course this means that when I get back from my holiday I'll have to redouble my efforts to keep up with the painting... especially now that BLMA is heading rapidly towards 2 million pageviews sometime over the summer!


  1. Big Lee,

    True - and well-deserved - fame at last!

    Enjoy SALUTE. I won't be there again this year even though I can see the venue from the road end of my front garden! (SWMBO has booked us another cruise at the same time!)

    All the best,


  2. Congrats on the fame and recognition Lee!

  3. Congrats and well deserved.
    I am not at Salute this year (unless I win the lottery).... hang on best not say that in case I do go ad them people will think that I am rich.

    1. Just tell 'em "Yes I did win - £25 for three matched numbers" and give me 20% of your winnings over that as hush money ;)

  4. Excellent! Always enjoy your blog!

  5. Fame and riches at last! Well, at least one of those things...

  6. Well deserved recognition for your blog. :)
    I expect Ray's blog got mentioned because he's been out blog-whoring again ;)

  7. Congrats on your new found fame!!!

  8. Break out the tux and prep the acceptance speech Lee, you're there, mate! Nice one ;)
