Thanks Schenk!

A big thank to Schenk, which honored me with this well-accepted award:

The rules:

- Copy and paste the award on your blog, linking it to the blogger who has given it to you. 
- Pass the award to your top five favourite blogs with fewer than 200 followers by leaving a comment on one of their blog posts to notify them that they have won the award and list them on your own blog.

Among the many blogs which I enjoy to read and follow my choice was, in no particular order, the following:

- Prometheus in Aspic, by MSFoy, a blog which is delightful to read and populated of nice pictures of nice miniatures. 
- Oderint dum Probent, by Gromoboy, a goldmine of informations on some of the most obscure military facts of XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries.
- Castle of Tin, by Corporal_Trim, a recently discovered blog dedicated to "flat". I like flats and I think that who paints them is a true artist! I even have some Louis XIV cavalry which I'll try to paint when I'll learn how to paint shades…-
- My Seven Years War, of the Kronoskaf mate Christian Rogge. The most up-to-date informations on the 7yw artillery. Also some nice flats (see above…) 
- Painting Wargames Figures, by Nigel, because his 28mm are a source of inspiration for my 6mm. Further he re-edited the old Greenwood&Ball booklets on the Prussian and Austrian armies in the SYW which were the very start of my interest in the period.

So bad that I had to choice only five. Indeed all the blogs in my list should deserve a prize, mainly because reading them gives me a relaxed and pleasant pause each time.

Fabrizio - thank you very much indeed for the nomination - you are very kind. In fact I have been nominated already, but I am very grateful for the thought.

Best regards, and thanks again - Tony

A well-deserved award, Fabrizio, both for this blog, and your older site devoted to Lutzen. Those TYW soldiers brought me many hours of joy and competition.
