Raffle Winning and an Interview

I know this is a bit of patting myself on the back but I would like to share it with all of you. This past month I got an email saying I won the 2011 New Year's Raffle at the Table Top Titans website. By winning the raffle I was given the opportunity to request one wargaming item to be made or painted for me. I requested a thatched roof house to use with my Vikings and WWII gaming. I also had the honor of being interviewed by Gabriel, one of the guys who runs the site. He then posted the interview to his website. I do not have alot of wargaming friends to share this with and I got a look from my wife so I hope that some of you board and miniature gamers can appreciate it. I did a small write up about it with pictures on my blog: The Command Tent. You can see the article on the project itself here: 2011 Raffle Winner Project and you can see the interview here: Interview with Dan. These kind of things done amongst people within in this hobby are one of the reasons I have really enjoyed getting into wargaming. For the most part I have found it to be a very fun and supportive group of people, most of which I have only communicated with via email, websites and blogs; hence my reason for sharing it on this forum. Thanks for reading

The picture below in the spoiler is of the house I won with some of my Vikings figures. It is a large picture which is the reason for the making it a spoiler.
