At the start of the year, I mentioned that one of the bright spots of 2008 had been gratifying increase in traffic and comment levels here at BfK. Well, that fact doesn’t seem to have gone unnoticed and I’ve had contact from a couple of figure manufacturers.
The nice thing for me is that I hope this will lead to them sending some review samples. The nice thing for them is that they’ll get some publicity if I choose to post a review here (assuming of course, that the figures are up to the mark). And I’ve been thinking about how I could share some of this “nice thing” with you – the people who actually take the time to visit and comment here. After all, if you didn’t, then this virtuous circle would never have got started.
So, what I’ve decided is that if (and it’s still an if) I get sent some review samples, I’m going to give them away in some sort of competition. I’ve got a clear idea of how I’d like the competition to work, except for one thing: how to divvy up the figures into prizes. So I thought I’d ask you which option you’d prefer by inviting you to vote in the poll below. I’m considering two possibilities:
- A single prize of the review sample figures unpainted.
- Several prizes consisting of one figure each painted, varnished and based by me.
Of course, the second option also depends on me finding the time to actually paint the figures!
Oh yeah, I’m not making any promises about how many “several” will be other than it’ll be more than one.
