If you do post an announcement, link banner etc somewhere could you post here so we know where been 'hit'!!
So far I have got it on Wyrd, platoon brittanica, should be on the miniatures page next few days.
I am also in the process of getting it onto company sites
Its going on the westwind forum
wargames-miniatures.co.uk
There is also a 'special' link going onto cmon soon too.
If any of you frequent other forums and can put an announcement there that would be great

click the picture which takes you to photobucket then hocer the mouse over it and you should get a litytle toolbar thing appear at the top of the picture (it will have soemthing like 83% at the left of it) on there it should say download - click that.
failing that pm me your email address and ill send it that way!

The hard bit will be keeping interest going so if you paint and enter stuff and show it off elsewhere plug what its for!!
