Uf! Long time without posting!
Short story: as you should know, I won in the contest that the nice PapaJJ held in diceRolla, with the help of another nice man who runs Sons of  Taurus. I've already received my prize, but I also won a SUPER BLOG CHAIN GIVE AWAY, held by Mattarias at Ex Incendia et Flamma. Before knowing I will won the SBCGA, I was planning to do my own to give someone some gifts, in order to celebrate the prize I won at at diceRolla. The thing is, now I have at least 2 give-aways planned and this will be the first.

You don't know what is the super blog chain giveaway?
Shortly, it's like a contest, where the host gives away some prize and the winner then makes another give-away and so on. This cool idea has begun by Jhon at Santa Cruz Warhammer and then it has spread in the entire world.

Now, it's my turn to give something away for one blogger.
What will be this time?

As you see, the prize will be a hobby tools set, consisting in:
- Hobby knife + 3 blades
- Set of 4 diferent tweezers
- Set of 6 metal files
- Set of 5 diamond files
To begin I've thought, something for beginners (or maybe for some of you how don't have these tools), because I would have loved to receive any of these when I was starting playing WHFB and preparing my first miniatures. Nowadays I use such tools every time I work with my miniatures, but in those years the only things I had were the minis, glue and a brush with 9 paints. That's why I've choosed to give away these tools, to help someone to begin with the hobby, or give someone some tools he/she don't own yet.

Are you wondering, what to do to win these stuff? The rules:
1. You must have a blog.
2. You must have something worthwhile to offer up to give away for free.
3. If you win, you must hold your own blogsite give away
4. You must contact Santa Cruz Warhammer with a link to your give away so they can send bloggers to your site.
5. You may only enter once per give away.
To enter you must:
- Being a follower of Nesbet Miniatures.
- Leave a comment here, with your blog name and url, before the deadline: 9th September
- Tell me what are you going to give away if you win.

The winner will be choosed at random , but I'll give more chances to the ones who offer better prizes for their own give-away. The winner will be anounced the 09-11-10.

That's it. Now, who wants free stuff?

PS: I've planned to give more things away, but the mail service of my country didn't allow me to post lots of things they consider "dangerous". What's SO dangerous in a bottle of cyanoacrilate-glue? Don't know, but I'll think in more things I can add to the prize in the weeks before the deadline! Stay tunned!

PS2: Are you wondering where I'm from? Shipping costs? Doesn't matter! I'll pay the shipping, regardless where the winner is from!

Yay! For the first time (not 100% true, but almost) I won a contest!
I haven't even won the bingo from the long-bus-trips that were made when I was a child, where EVERYONE got at least a free ticket or a mug.

It was so cool to see this package coming last Wednesday!

I think you don't know, but the good fella from diceRolla had a contest to win tons of chaos warriors miniatures. I wasn't lucky enough to enter the contest before the deadline, and just knew that when the winner was announced. I just said "bad luck" and congratulations for the winners. Winners, that's it, lots of them, because the good-hearted Jason not only give away hundreds of chaos warriors to the winner, he also make everyone who participated win some stuff, depending on the army or game they played! Yes, unbelievable or not, some nice guys still do exist!

Ok, but, what did the pic over there and the story have to do with me? The winner (of the first prize) was another very nice person, who runs another blog I follow: Sons of taurus. He was lucky enough to win the big prize. The thing is, when I replyed Jason in diceRolla, he answered me that James (from Sons of Taurus) already had contacted him to give me a part of HIS prize!!

I was really amazed for such nice gestures of kindness. First PapaJJ then Jim... Wow!!
Now, what did I win?

- Chaos Knight box
- Chaos Trolls x 3
- Nurgle Sorcerer
- Chaos Sorcerer

Just to make sure you understand how magnanimous and nice some people are, PapaJJ don't ever let me pay the shipping costs!

I'm sorry I couldn't post earlier, but I got the package just before I left town to travel to Santiago. I attended a dentistry convention there, to present a poster:

Now I've already planned my give-away. I just need to make the pics in order to post the info. So, stay tunned if you want to grab some free stuff!! Of course I'll pay the shipping costs, it's the least I can do after being gifted by such awesome persons like PapaJJ and Jim!

See ya next time!

PS: Before that, I need to thank Abhorash and the other guys from Santiago, who offered me nice games and hospitality. Waiting for the pics to post!
