The Miniatures Man 50K Giveaway

So, this blog has passed 50 000 hits surprisingly enough. I guess it is time for a give-away.
I’ve been down in the mines under the tin- and plastics-mountain and excavated some stuff that could possibly be of interest.
So, what gives?
Four winners will receive a pack from below. All miniatures come as you see them, probably not in their original packaging and probably not with bases attached.
1. The 40K Gretchin Pack
Seven Gretchin from Games Workshop and their 40K range. Mechanics and ammo-bearers. Long since out of print. One with a broken foot.
2. 40K Deff Kopta Pack
One old School Deff Kopta, the Orky attack helicopter.
3. The Rackham Wolfen Pack
Wolfen with Crossbow, Wolfen Hunter and Onyx the Prowler
4. The Chainmail Monster Pack
Four figures from WotC:s 28mm fantasy Chainmail game - a gnoll fighter, orc skeleton, goblin crossbowman and troglodyte zombie + a Reaper Lupine Rager as a bonus.
5. The Chainmail Heroes Pack
female paladin, a wizard, a gnome infiltrator and a marine.
6. The WWII Pack
A box of Caesars lovely Panzer Grenadiers in camo smocks.

Finally, the rules:
1. You must be a public follower of this blog, old or new. Gives you one chance in the draw.
2. You must comment below so I know you’re interested. List what you’re interested in or get a random pick if you’re one of the winners.
3. Write a line or two about this giveaway on your own blog, with a link to this post, for an extra chance to win.
4. If you’ve linked from your blog, then tell me (and the world) so, and give us a link to that post in your comment.
5. You have until Sunday January 26, noon GMT, to apply. Then I will randomly (using dice of course!) select the winners and post about them on my blog within a day or two.
6. You will have to come back to me in a reasonable time to be eligible; if not then someone else will get the stuff.
7. Stretch goal! If I reach 100 followers before this ends, I will unlock another winner, so a total of five packs will be sent to some lucky winners.
8. If your prize is lost or damaged in the mail, then it’s a shame. Better luck next time.

This is what some of the figures can look like when assembled and painted:
Goblin crossbow man, gnoll fighter and orc skeleton from the Chainmail Monster Pack
Female paladin, gnome infiltrator and human marine from the Chainmail Heroes Pack

Welcome new follower Baconfat with Baconfat Log blog – piles of lead, cyanoacrylate and toxic paint. Lots of interesting wargames going on there.

    Link to my mention of your blog here. I would really love the Wolfen from Confrontation! I have a small group of them as I have played Confrontation. Now I mostly use them in games of Warlord from Reaper games. Really lovely models!
