First Annual Golden Grenadier Award

Here it is! And pretty darn cool looking the certificate is too. Thank you to "Dwarfman" for his efforts to incorporate Oberfeldwebel Klatschen into the design. That makes it particularly special given the Oberfeldwebel's growing status and renown in the Grand Duchy of Stollen.

I'd like to mention that my follow painters in the contest also submitted impressively colored figures too, each one worthy of note in its own right. These little works of art included a couple of Prussian SYW cuirassiers, George Washington on horseback, a fantastic fantasy figure -- a mounted "Prince Imrahil", and a 40mm Dark Age Saxon figure on foot. And each figure was painted to standards as high and exacting as the Oberfeldwebel. Hats off to you men. I am continually impressed by how high the figure painting standards in the hobby have risen. Well done to everyone!

A well deserved award, Stokes. He's one to be proud of.

The high painting standard in the hobby is a bit intimidating to me, I admit, as I work on my own figures. I think I'm just going to have to take it a little at a time, trial and error, and just do my best. You've certainly given me some inspiration with your own works though.

Congratulations again. I'm proud to say that I was one of the folks that voted for him.
