First BfK competition: and the winner is…
Posted by Martin on May 10, 2009
Apologies for been a little later than expected with announcing the winner of the first BfK competition. My only excuse is that real life got in the way. I’d like to thank the dozens of you who took the time and trouble to enter. You are clearly a knowledgeable bunch because the overwhelming majority of entries supplied the correct answer. I was also amazed at the geographic distribution of entries with some coming from as fas afield as Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, New Zealand and the USA as well as the UK.
The potrait I asked you to identify was of General Baron Pierre-David (Edouard) Colbert de Chabanais, best known as the commander of the Dutch Lancers of the Imperial Guard (AKA the Red Lancers). His two brothers who also rose to the rank of general were Auguste-Francois-Marie and Louis-Pierre-Alphonse.
The lucky winner is Andy Kay. So congratulation to you, Andy, and I’ll be in touch via e-mail to arrange for you to receive your prize from Offensive Miniatures. My comiserations to the rest of you but hopefully I’ll be able to organize more competitions is future so that you’ll get another chance.
