Nominated for being Stylish!

Quite the unexpected honor here, #2501 (who is apparently also known as Mark) from Musings of a Metal Mind nominated me in their Stylish list for the space hulk-esk terrain modules I've been working on.  Who I'd like to thank very much for that. ^.^  I would've posted sooner, but I was out of town and away from internet till about 3am today (Tuesday the 10th)

Backtracing the Stylish blog posts here to here to here to here, (it goes on but I felt I'd figured enough about what was going a couple or three back) I found that the Stylish blog has a number of chain letter-esk tasks to complete which are (thankfully) listed on all the blogs, so they weren't hard or confusing to figure out.

* Thank and Link back to the person giving you the award.
* Share seven things about yourself
* Select 10-15 blogs who you think deserve this award
* Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award.

1. Incidentally I inadvertently did that above, but Thanks again!

2. Seven Things eh...
2-1. I've played with minis sense I was a small child, including painting, assembling etc (D&D miniatures) but only picked up miniature war gaming around 2004-05 with mordheim, and 40k a year after that.  Sense then I've tried a number of the new ones that've come out and would like to try many more.

2-2. I've had about 30 computers running as a rendering cluster for a short animation of a gummy bear army marching down a street.  (8-10 of them were in my room...  and though not currently running/assembled, most of them still are.)

2-3. When I first started into 40k I fell in love with the Tyranids, but then shifted over to Tau due to issues generating personable individuals in the Hive Mind.  And am currently floundering all over the place. (As what posts I have posted or are working to post are showing.)

2-4. My first job was at the high school I went to, 2 years before I graduated.  I was officially a Computer Technician, but did a lot more Programming and Software Engineering.

2-5. Cyberpunk and other 'gritty' type settings appeal to me the most.

2-6. I've developed a pretty strong dislike for straight fantasy (D&D, Warhammer Fantasy Battle(s?), etc), or based on WW2 (nothing wrong with the war itself, but it, like generic fantasy, just feels way overused)

2-7. I started blogging to drive myself forward and actually finish some of my projects.  Oh how well that hasn't worked... ^.^;

3. Nominations, Nominations...  Not really in any particular order, they should probably be alphabetical, but eh.  And I'm positive a number of these blogs/bloggers have already been nominated, but I don't care, I feel they deserve a nomination from me too ^.~
3-1. A Gentleman's Ones - Brian for his work on Killzone, especially the tables for Adepticon, wish I coulda gone and seen them in person.  Also for his most recent stuff with Warmachine, showing his trials and tribulations on a miniature game I was tempted to start even though none of the forces really called out to me.

3-2. Galaxy in Flames - Big Jim and his amazing work on Killzone.  And with spreading the joy of well done fan-made content.

3-3. Musings of a Metal Mind - I know he's the one that nominated me, but when I saw Mik's post back in April regarding his claim to Style, I didn't figure I'd ever receive a nomination, but I started thinking about who I would nominate, and #2501 was high up in the list, both as a supporter of me, offering advice and ideas, as well as for his conversions, especially the Tyracons and Adeptus Mechanicus stuff, gorgeous stuff

3-4. Inq28 - For the simple joy of being introduced to the concept of using 28mm miniatures for Inquisitor (though I've yet to actually play inquisitor, I have some very vague ideas on miniatures for Dark Heresy/Rogue Trader/Deathwatch and I hear the two games are similar)

3-5. Warrant of Trade - For a lot of interesting and useful game mastering help/tips and stuff done for Rogue Trader.

3-6. Tau of War - For both his massive amount of Tau information/tactics/modeling conversions and his recent Infinity stint that somehow pushed me into actually looking into the game I've been thinking about for a while.  I've decided I like the look of the Nomads and it sounds like they'll be fun to play as well.

3-7. Dei Greci - The amazing scratch builds and dioramas just deserve another shout.  I'm just blown away by their quality.  Something to shoot for in my own endeavors.

grr, that's only seven but I'm tired, still haven't slept from my trip >.>
