Stylin' and Profilin' WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

A nod or two to the Naitch, Ric Flair. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

So I've been nominated as a Stylish Blogger by my pal Lefteris (AKA, the Anti-Pope) over at 122nd Cadian.


σας ευχαριστούμε!

Thank you so much for the fabulous honor, and for being ever-so-generous to me and my blog. I am especially grateful for your assistance with my MOST POPULAR post ever, "Show Some Skin". Your kindness and willingness to share your lovely tats was most appreciated by yours truly. Your blog is a true asset to the Greek community. I've found some great articles, fabulous writers, fun models and really interesting lists over your way, and learned some more Greek. I'm truly honored to be so well regarded by such a treasure.

This award is a way for us bloggers to show appreciation for each others' work and efforts in the community- something I can really get behind. 

Here are the rules:

-- Thank and link back to the person giving you the award (see above)
-- Share seven things about yourself
-- Select 10-15 blogs who you think deserve this award
-- Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award

Seven things...

1- I've spoken on the phone to over 1000 people in 60 different countries and 10 different time zones. 

2- As a result of #1, I can speak roughly 10 phrases in about 20 languages. I can also read basic phrases in most Romance and Germanic languages, and infer or deduce content in many others. 

3- I am a certified Francophile.

4- I love serial killer fiction, facts, films, novels and much more. I especially love to read how they are CAUGHT. 

5- I am a terrible housekeeper, but TheDude married me anyway.

6- I can bake anything except pie. 
7- I've already admitted this several times, but I love professional wrestling. I'll totally admit to marking out! (At the moment, not watching, as the writing truly stinks.)

Now it's time to return the favor!  Let's plug the community. My community is a little larger and a little more diverse than just 40K, so I've got some real treats for you.  A lovely couple, who produce some mind-blowing, non-traditional work. I'd be hard pressed to find a more generous, creative, innovative and WOD digging dude. Has had a large hand in my ability to actually win games with my Black Templar in 40K. A guy who gets the call of roleplaying, miniatures, and the community in general. I pushed him to start his own blog, and he's doing a grand job with it. I'm especially fond of his rants. Thanks for stopping in, and your blog is always a treasure. Has done a ton for Orks, and 'Old Skool' 40K. The Resident Professional! With all kinds of shiny advice and fantastic goodies.  Thor is the man, with some of the best information for a new player available- he totally puts my "40K for Beginners" to shame and I love it. Stormy has a ridiculous sense of humor and a great army. His blog is a trove of information and fun for those on the other side of the ocean. Who else is doing the Badab Project? Who else has the Eldar Dictionary? How cool is this blog? I really love this IG oriented blog, and I'm still hunting for the beer he showcased during his live tournament blogging.  Von's another voice with a blend of RPG, miniatures, and other obscura. I find his wealth and depth of knowledge, intuition and experience a genuine pleasure to read. Simply, the best OSR RPG blogger. Great wit, wonderful insanity, and genuinely nice guy.  I might be a little prejudiced, but the man wears a tie every day. How much more stylin' can you get?

So there you have it, a list of some very styling blogs and a big huge thank you!

Be Well,



  1. YES! I actually really wanted a nomination.

    Thanks, Lo!

  2. Yay, I is stylish! Thanks!

  3. You definitely deserve the award, World of Wonder has style in spades... congrats!! Thanks so much for the nomination, Loquacious!

  4. Apparently we are both stylish twice, as I'd nominated you... I think this thing is going to reverberate around our little community. It probably makes an imposing GONG sound. GONNNNNNG...

    Thanks! :D

  5. Παρακαλούμε!
    Cheers Lo (although the way you put it down in Greek is like speaking to me in the polite plural form, something you really do to your elders :P).

    I know WoW is not strictly a 40k blog but I think what you doing is very important and useful to new players and I also like very much the overall vibe of it that's why I nominated you :)

    Both you and Admiral Drax mentioned that my blog is beneficial for the Greek 40K community. This comes a bit strange for me since that wasn't really my intention, I just wanted a blog to write about my daily activities and thoughts about 40K. I am glad that you see it like that though and that people can get a small glimpse about gaming in Greece :)


  6. Congrats, Lo, it's well deserved.

    I've got to stop slacking. I was nominated last week from ShotDownMind and started drafting a post but went on a min-vacation and haven't finished it. I did of course nominate you, Lo, and despite already having a nomination I'll keep you in my post when I finally get it up.
