Stylish Blogger Award

I've seen these awards circulating around the Blogsphere for the last couple of weeks so I thought there was going to be one coming my way (I got a big head like that you see) sooner or later. I am glad that Amiral Drax nominated me for it though since I have much respect for his blog and think it's THE archetypal Guard blog (along with Corbania Prime). Here are his generous words:
"The Antipope (122nd Cadian) - Does marvels for the Greek hobby, and his posts are always a delight to read."

Cheers Admiral!

At the beginning I thought the award was kinda like a chain-letter spammy thing but then again there is nothing wrong getting your blog acknowledged from fellow hobbyists. Here is what you need to do if you are nominated for the award:
  1. Thank and link back to the person giving you the award
  2. Share seven things about yourself
  3. Select 10-15 blogs who you think deserve this award
  4. Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award
Okay, so, seven things about me...Let's see:
  1. I am a musician but also studied for a BSc in Physics (although I never got my degree).
  2. I am Greek but lived in the UK for eight years.
  3. I am married to Leah who is Korean American and also the coolest person in the world.
  4. I spend 3-4 hours on the internet everyday checking for warhammer stuff and another 1-2 hours painting.
  5. I love tattoos and I am lanning to open a tattoo shop very soon where I am going to work with my wife. 
  6. H.P Lovecraft is my favourite author. 
  7. I like gyros, ramen noodles and bacon butties (but not at the same time).
So these are the blogs I really like. Not extremely stylish per se but they are the ones that I check most often:
  • Home of Cadaver: Not a splatter/gore fansite but very well painted models from the Greek ork meister.
  • Bringer of Victory: Great blog for sound tactical advice and list building and also has some hilarious posts about internet stupidity.
  • White Scars: The definite blog for White Scar aficionados. From painting to playing, almost everything is covered for this army.
  • Claws and Fists: Great team of writers that cover many aspects of the hobby. Very fun and easy going.
  • Collegia Titanica: If you like titans this is the blog for you!
  • Dick Move: Home of FNIF and the funniest blog out there for me.
  • Faeit 212: Excellent source for rules and some nice editorials.
  • World of Wonder: Very cool blog that is trying to help people new into the 40K hobby with some very useful guides.
  • War Tales: Another Greek blog full of beautifully painted miniatures.
  • Troll Tales: An entire blog dedicated to Fantasy Orks? How could I not love it!
So, yeah, go check out all these wonderful blogs about and keep spreading the word.


  1. Thanks for your kind words about the White Scars Blog.

    Your e-mail now makes sense!

  2. Alrighty,now i know where i have go to have a Crux Terminatus Tatoo on my left shoulder.
    Thank you for the kind words too.

  3. Thanks for the shout-out, mate - and what do you mean not stylish ;)

  4. Cheers guys!
    Sorry Gotthammer my comment might have come across the wrong way. I meant that I didn't choose the blog based just on their style but mainly how much I like them and how frequent I visit them :)

  5. Don't worry about it, I was being a smart-ass :)

    I'm going to do something a little different with my award I think, as most people I'd nominate have already won.

  6. Smart assness(?) is always welcomed although I could be slow to get it at times :P

    Yeah seems to be running out of blog who haven't yet got the award :P

  7. *blushes*

    Thank you for the support Antipope! I may have to try posting this to my blog as well!

  8. Thanks for the shout-out mate. A bit weird to be standing amongst all these 40k bloggers, but I appreciate the opportunity all the same :)
