The blog is also nearing its 3rd birthday (April 25th). In that spirit I re-read my first ever post and I’m happy to say that I’ve been sticking to my original vision pretty tight.

A special thank you must go out to two of my most ardent followers, Sho3box and Vampifan. Thanks guys, your comments and feedback have helped shape both this blog and my views on the hobby.

My heartfelt thanks to everyone who has dropped by and even kept coming back. To put it in a manly and mature way, you people are




  1. Well done on the 100k!!! And a very happy nearly 3rd Blog birthday!!!


    • Double thanks Ray!


  2. Good for you Mikko, keep it up.

    Interesting that Frothers and LAF generate roughly the same amount of traffic each.

    Less surprising to me is that miniature Aliens, Predators and Colonial Marines generate traffic, particularly when the posts are comprehensive reviews of everything available for such popular franchises. You are the first Google hit for “colonial marine miniatures” for example, nice work.

    All the more reason for you to get cracking on that reactor board.

    Thanks for the shout out 🙂


    • Thanks Paul! The reactor board is well underway, I’ll try to get an update posted today or tomorrow.
