100th Post Giveaway!

Welcome my 100th post! Look at that, talking to you a hundred times. I can't believe it's been that many already. It wasn't even a year ago that I split this page off on its own. I started the blog as a way to keep track of my hobby progress, but it unexpectedly turned into a way of connecting with all of you.

Break out the party hats.
Between here and Twitter, I've connected with an amazing array of wargamers. I've been incredibly inspired by all of you. Your own work, advice, and encouragement have been so amazing. I couldn't have grown so much as a painter and hobbyist in the past year without your help and support. That's why I've decided to do a small giveaway in thanks.

But, that's why you're here, isn't it? I invoked the magic words: free stuff! I'll keep you in suspense no longer. Here's the deal: I'm going to give away a $25 Games Workshop gift voucher. All you need to do to enter is leave a comment (using Disqus, please) on this post saying what you might like to buy with it if you win. One entry per person. The contest will be open for one week, starting right now and ending on April 9, 2013 at 11:59 PM, EST. The winner will be randomly selected and announced on April 10.

Now, of course, there's a little fine print regarding the voucher. This giveaway is open to everybody, everywhere. I checked with GW and the email voucher can only be used on the website it was purchased from. That means, if I buy a voucher on the US site, but the winner lives in the UK, the winner would have to spend it on US site, pay for shipping from the US, and then wait for the post office gremlins to slog it all the way across the ocean. That's a pain in the butt for everyone.

So, if you enter, you agree to a) give me your email address so I can email you the voucher in the first place and b) tell me what country you live in so I can buy the right one for you. Unfortunately, it also means that the $25 number is only an approximation if you're outside the US, as native currencies are used on each country's site. GW only lets you choose fixed amounts from a list, so I will send the winner whichever one is closest to the equivalent of $25 USD and you'll get that one. It might be a little more, it might be a little less.

Sound good? All right! So, tell me, my warmonger friends, what would you buy if you win $25 gift voucher?

*Edit* You don't need to leave your email/country in the comment. I'll ask the winner for that after the contest ends.

  1. Another darkshroud, just because i want to run 3 behind a large group of blackknights for lol 2+ cover, and then cry when a helldrake flies on.

  2. I'd probably use it to get some Assault Marines.

  3. Got to be terrain! The most versatile of GW's products... just don't tell them I'd use them with other games systems! ;)

  4. I'd have to go with the Fenrisian wolf pack. A) They're beautiful sculpts and B) you can never have too many wolves.

  5. Either more Empire Outriders/Pistoleers to kit bash into IG Rough Riders, OR more Marine Scouts to convert into Wolf Scouts ....

    On consideration, I think I'd have to pick up the "Mordheim Frenzied Mob", as I don't buy enough crazy little odd things for my own painting amusement. And that big pile of freaks and weirdoes have a particular amusement for me...

  7. I am in desperate need for more Chaos Warhounds...

  8. And grats on 100!

  9. I'm partial to the Wolf Scouts myself, but I might be a little biased. ;-)

  10. What a great choice! That set is really fun. I should pick one up myself.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I have a special place in my heart for those Warhounds, they were the first models I built.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yup! I have 30, but my army list calls for 40... I just haven't bought them yet...

    ReplyDelete
  13. I would like to get a IG tank. Never painted a tank before, I want to give it a try. Probably in Vostroyan colors. So pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Congrats on the 100!


    If I won, I'd probably get some Dark Eldar Wracks, as I quite fancy converting them into Chosen for a Slaansh Path to Glory warband...

    ReplyDelete
  15. I could put that towards Wolf Guard Terminators.... Or TWC.... or Logan Grimnar... Or Bjorn.. Or... Or...

  16. $25? Maybe help finish out the rhinos I need. Or work more on 10th company.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'd get Queek Headtaker, because I just love rats :3

    ReplyDelete
  18. It would be a gift of another box of fenrisian wolves for the kid, or anything else she might be fancying. :-)

    Aka - 40kChris

  19. I'd buy some of the new Eldar goodies rumored in June!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hmm. $25 would go a long way toward actually buying the Shira Calpurnia novels. I hear they're quite good, and I would so like to encourage GW to give Matt Farrer more money and have him write more words.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That would be really interesting to see!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think that'd be really fun to paint.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oooh, intriguing selection. I might have to get one as well.

    ReplyDelete
  24. $25 would help me finish my collection of CSM special characters. Just need Ahriman and I have cought them all.

    tau pathfinders ftw ;-)

  26. I will print off a physical copy of the voucher, take the train down to the Games Workshop Tokyo store, and try to overcome the language barrier by using Google translate to ask for a box of Chaos Terminators. Based on previous experiences, if I don't resort directly to pointing at what I want, it should be awkward and hilarious. I will then combine them with a bunch of Possessed bits to make Possessed Terminators for my Word Bearers army.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That's a nice sculpt, and he's one of my favorite characters from a fluff standpoint.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'd vote for another Horus Heresy book, but I'm still trying to catch up.

    ReplyDelete
  29. While that sounds both hilarious and frustrating, you can only use email vouchers on the website, not in the store. But, you can ship your order to the store (which is free in the US, as least) and get some entertainment out of it when you pick it up.

  30. Well lets see I might buy some storm troopers for my guard army or pick up some sisters of battle for allies

    ReplyDelete
  31. One of my planned conversions for my Wolves army is a Venerable Dreadnought which I would use the voucher to help buy. The he gets a name, a saga and a glorious death in battle!

    ReplyDelete
  32. That sounds even more difficult to explain. Maybe I should stick to the US site and my PO box for future GW orders.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'd like some storm troopers for my son!
