Fw: Easter Basket Giveaway

Spring has sprung in my neck of the woods, and that oh so joyous holiday of Easter is fast approaching. To celebrate I thought I would share an Easter basket with one of my lucky followers, but this is no ordinary Easter basket, this basket will be filled not only with normal items of chocolate bunnies, pastel colored eggs and jelly beans, but with all sorts of mini goodies.

Imagine less eggs, and more things you might
actually want.

You must be a follower of Sippin' On Paint Water by April 8, 2012.
You must leave a comment on this post, 'Easter Basket Giveaway'.
If you win you will have to disclose your address, The Easter Bunny may 
know where you live but I don't.

There you have it, very simple, I hope the promises of chocolate and minis is enough to lure you into following. The winner will be announced on Easter Sunday, and hopefully I'll have the basket in the mail the next day. I'll even throw out a bonus way to get your name in the drawing twice, reblog this and I'll see to it that you get a second chance at the prize, want a third chance? Then email me a pic of a mini you have painted like an Easter egg or an Easter egg that you have painted like a mini, IE a Space Marine egg. Just send the email to: cbhollowell at AIM dot COM. If I receive enough submitted  images I may make a special post to showcase them in all their pastel glory, good luck and happy Easter, thanks for reading and stay thirsty.
Chris is a good friend of mine, and has a great blog, but I'mma win dat basget.

Ravenstar Studios

Last week while I was out on business my order from Ravenstar Studios arrived, containing my Stalker tanks and Fox Walker for my Kayseri, these definitely help set them apart from the other armies in the area, and the legs make them appear even more alien. They have some really cool models over there for 15mm.

The sculpts on these are very nice, much nicer than I expected. The only downside to these models was the amount of bubbles, but after speaking with Ravenstar, he said that he'd be happy to replace anything that was disfigured. I declined as I have already decided to make said areas battle damaged, but that is a very generous offer. Hopefully they can find whats causing the bubble issue and get it resolved. I would love doing more business with Ravenstar in the future knowing this information.

Sons of Medusa!

For reasons unknown to myself, I have been talked into making a 1000pt strike force for Sons of Medusa. I started looking into their fluff and, to my surprise, found them to be amazingly bad ass. More so than most of the fluff for the conventional Codex: Space Marine Chapters. They are unique in their founding of a chapter, as they were never actually founded. They were reviewed by the High Lords of Terra after a dispute with their previous battle brothers, the Iron Hands, left them exiled. They were found to be pure and righteous in the eyes of the Emperor and granted special chapter status. Here is the first Sergeant I have assembled, his right arm is bionic, I plan to make it more detailed soon.
Squad Sergeant Aes Pugno see's heretics behind the mouse!
