Baccus New French GIVEAWAY Winners!

My French Army to date, awaiting new recruits to expand.
Another Giveaway bites the dust. This one sponsored  by Baccus. So three lucky winners will get 25% off an order for the New French Napoleonic forces available soon. These new figures are expected to be available sometime in May so not that far away. Not all of the range will be available straight away, such is the revamp that the process will go deep into 2013 and I suspect possibly into 2014 given the size of the project. That is to say, this is not a straight swap out of codes but is in fact a mass expansion of the available troops types starting with the infantry. We will see a lot more choices as is fitting the most dominant of armies of the period. I for one am very excited as I will be expanding my currant army ten fold at least over the next two years. It's fair to say that Peter will be absorbing a great deal of my hobby funds between now and Waterloo. Oh hum, maybe he will name his second Ferrari after me (an in joke, after all he already has three whilst poor Igor has a tandem). 

OK the draw, in order of the draw,

Dartfrog who run's the excellent blog Dartfrog's Adventures in 6mm, who quipped that his whole blog is a pimping of Baccus, lets see if it's him or me who get the first of the New Baccus on our blogs.

Dux Homunculorum painted his first 6mm figures for Phil Broeders as a prize from a Giveaway on his own blog which you really should follow. Well Dux has managed to get the 6mm bug. How bad? Well lets see what he paints up after getting his first order into Peter.

So after Random Number . Org had given me the first and last numbers on my list I was interested in what came next. Groan it was someone I knew in real life . com rather than just blog world. I had agonised over getting Peter to do the draw given the fairly high chance this would happen but with Salute around the corner I knew he needed that almost as much as he needs another high performance car so I did the honours.

So third winner is my very own Lee Sharpe, who could get a serious case of lead poisoning just entering his hobby room! Oh well I know he will bankrupt poor Peter with his 25% discount! Sorry Peter, I did think for a moment about redoing the draw but that would be really unfair so weldone mate.

So if all three winners could get in touch with your real names and address I will send on to Peter to file for when you place your orders.

Please remember it's 25% off the new Napoleonic French (though I am sure you can order other figures at the same time) and only covers the cost of the figures, you pay full postage as per normal value of your order. Please let me know what you get, if only to make me green with envy.

Last of all many thanks to Peter at Baccus for supporting this giveaway and apologies to Igor who will no doubt suffer chronic back pain from carrying at least one order to the post office.

  6. *Looks down at gauntlet. Picks it up gently and dusts it off. "Sir, I think you dropped this."

    Seriously, thanks I fully intend to invest deeply in the new range, and this is the excuse I need. As for the race to finish, I think you have at least 6,000 miles on me. That and I should probably work on my 1809 Poles....
