63rd post - Blog of the Month, February!



Hey guys, and welcome to the Blog of the Month of February!

First of all, if you'd like to know a little more about the origins of this idea, you can read the first Blog of the Month post.



*******************************************************


Well, my choice for this month's blog is: Scott's Wargaming Blog!!!

Scott's blog started in the far away year of 2006, which mean that he is like the Gandalf of the LOTR/Hobbit hobby bloggers.

I must say that this is one of my favourite blogs ever, not just because Scott's an amazing painter, but because he is one of those guys that really keeps this hobby alive. 
I've told this once, but I'll repeat: 
I was introduced to this game in the year of 2003 (I was 11 years old) and everything about the BGIME issues had a magical fragrance that even today makes me want to go back to those times of my childhood. I'm telling all this because when I visit Scott's blog, it makes me feel that child giggling again. Somehow Scott manages to keep all the spirit that brought me to this hobby/sbg in the first place.

Here's the link to his blog: www.scottswargaming.blogspot.com

And here are some of his pictures:

    1. Yes it is Sam :)
      I believe the real trick in all this hobby/gaming is to be a Middle-Earth's fan

  3. Thank you very much for this kind mention! Must admit I feel a bit of a blush coming on... ;-)

    I'll admit its great to get a bit of feedback like this... it makes keeping the blog going all the more worthwhile when you know folks enjoy reading your ramblings and and viewing your painting output...

    I'll try and keep it interesting, and I hope can make some other worthwhile blog writers blush too! ;-)

    And of course, I enjoy viewing your blogging too, keep up the good work!
    Thanks again.

    1. You're welcome Scott :D
      I really hope that your blog keeps on track for the next decades eheheheh
      Your blog is one of those top blogs in which I usually take a peek whenever I feel like improving my own skills and my blog.
      I see it as an inspiration! Thanks Scott ;)
      Cheers

    2. I am actually very jealous of you being (correctly, though) dubbed as the Gandalf of bloggers >:( But it is correct :D Keep it up mr Scott!

  4. *Whistling* Now this is some good sh*t! Really nice to see another WotR/LotR-blogger. Now, there *are* a bunch of us out there, but the activity/regularity leaves a bit to wish for. Big hopes for your blog mister! ;D

    See you at wordpress - blogger and google+ is soooo 2013!

    1. I completely agree! The lack of regularity is the main problem on our "little" hobby.
      I believe though that there is already a pretty nice community, and it is growing now every month.
      All we can do is to keep this hobby interesting, and that'll probably attract some more hobbyists :)

      Many thanks for your kind comment Llama :)

  5. Scot does have a great blog. He's also probably going to win Curt's Thepaintingchallenge theme with that Radagast.

    1. I believe he will... It is a great model, and with this amazing paint job in it, the odds are in favour :)
