I'm a little shocked and overwhelmed to be the recipient of anything, never mind an award. WOW.
I must thank the very generous Michael Awdry of 28mm victorian warfare fame for my nomination.
Just as my posting was becoming somewhat erratic, this will go some way to making me pull my finger out and try harder.

As Michael tweaked his Liebster, I would like to tweak mine and do something that Lord Siwoc did with his. That is instead of me come up with eleven things about my self, I'll ask you to set the questions. Please keep it to two questions maximum each and read the other questions so that repetition is avoided. I'll even try and tell the truth.

The rules,
1. Copy and paste the award on your blog, remembering to link back to the blogger who has given it to you.

2. Pass on the award to your top 5 blogs with less than 200 followers by leaving a comment on one of their posts to notify them that they have won the award and listing them on your own blog.

3. Sit back and bask in the warm fuzzy feeling that comes with knowing you have made someone's day.

4. There is, of course, no obligation to pass this onto anyone else, but it's nice if you take the time to do so. Think of the positive karma dude. Paying it forward and all that shit man.

My five nominee's (this is the lazy man's Liebster, after all) will be in no particular order:-

1. Mathyoo @ The Necroleadicon. On an insurgent trip at the moment, cool sculpts too and zombies sometimes.

2. Nobody667 @ Game Mayhem. Excellent ATZ Batreps.

3. Irqan @ Plastic Zombie. ATZ set in the 1940's. Very nice.

4. Zombie Ad @ The Lead Will Walk The Earth. Cool stuff with Dust Tactics.

5. Dave VanDam @ Round Dave's. Zombies and other cool stuff.

In other news I have to get the welcome wagon back out of the shed, to give my latest followers Tony Maher and tsilverthorn a big BZA welcome. WELCOME TONY. WELCOME TSILVERTHORN. Can't find any blogs for you guys, let me know if you have one. I hope you enjoy the journey, it could take a while.

That's all the fun and games for now dudes and dudettes, 'til next time try and do as the DUDE does and "take it easy".


  1. Welcome to the Leibsters and congratualtions for the recognition.

    If you have one, what is your favourite historical army that you either have or would want ?

    Again, if you play computer/console games (or similar) what is your favourite genre and if you don't, is there a game you'd like to play ?

    1. Thanks Joe.
      Never been much of a historical fan, always been sci-fi, post apoc and horror gamer. That being said I quite fancy dabbling in Bolt Action with a Nazi Zombie horde of course.

      Yes I do play console games, the Fallout series is one of my faves, Skyrim was very good, really liked Bioshock, but some days it's nice to unwind with a little urban chaos courtesy of Grand Theft Auto. The last one was excellent.

  2. Well done that man, just recognition for all your positive comments and enthusiasm - keep up the good work Dude.

  3. Dude! congratulations keep up the good work Bob!

  4. Well done on the Leibster award nomination, Bob. I have no desire to take part in it but I will be adopting Lord Siwoc's idea of a Q & A session with my own twist on it.

    So, I'll ask you the same two questions i asked Lord Siwoc.
    What is your favourite zombie film?
    What is your favourite post-apocalypse non-zombie film?

    1. Thanks Bryan.
      WOW.That's a tough one. So many to choose from. I think it will have to be the original Dawn of the Dead, in almost a photo finish with La Horde.

      Non zombie post apocalypse has to be a coin flip between Mad Max 2 and Escape from New York.

      Good questions Dude.

  5. Thanks for the nomination, it's greatly appreciated but I will have to pass :P.

    I have trouble shooting out questions like this, so I will pass for now and come back if I get an idea! :D

  6. No worries Mathyoo, there's no obligation.
    You some kind of super spy? LOL.

  7. Congrats Bob and thank you too. I think I'll do something similar to Johnny myself.

    So... What is your favourite Zombie Game?

    1. Thanks Ad.
      You deserve it sir, keep up the great work.

      Well at the moment the only game the WNI play is Zombicide, and I've persuaded most of the family to play as well.
      So zombicide, at least until I've completed enough terrain for ATZ.

  8. Congrats, Bob, you do have a top notch blog.

    1. Thanks Baconfat.
      Very kind of you to say dude.

  9. Congrats on the award, and thanks for a nomination! You have a great blog, and it is fun to follow!

    I believe I will pass on the chain letter aspect, but I could be convinced to answer a few questions as lord Siwoc did. (I wonder if he knew what he was starting!)

    My questions:
    1. What is your favorite mini manufacturer?
    2. What is your "theme song"?

    1. Thanks Nobody667.
      You deserve it, your batreps are some of the best I've read.
      I think Lord Siwoc's idea was excellent.
      My answers:
      1. Gotta be Hasslefree, awesome stuff, I often go there to drool.
      2. Hmmm, tough choice. Slipknot's Spit it Out.

  10. Congrats on being Libstered Bob, and thanks for my nomination, it's much appreciated dude. I think like you, I'll do a Siwoc instead when I get round to passing on my noms.
    My questions are:
    1. Your favourite Dude quote?
    2. Your favourite TV show?

  11. Thanks DVD.
    Your nomination is richly deserved. I think Lord Siwoc has started a "thing".
    1. WALTER: "Those rich fucks! This whole fucking thing--- I did not watch my buddies die face down in the muck so that this fucking strumpet....."
    DUDE: "I don't see any connection to Vietnam, Walter."
    WALTER: "Well there isn't a literal connection, Dude."
    DUDE: "Walter, face it, there isn't any connection."

    2.The Walking Dead, when that isn't on Hannibal.

    Good questions dude.
