  1. Fantastic stuff. I love the falling snow effect too!

    I’m pleased that you’re happy with the way your blog has developed in 2010. Your certainly not just producing more of the same ol’ content that everyone is knocking out. When Cannons Fade has its own flavour.

    Keep it up in the year to come fella!

  2. Thank you good sir, I’m hoping that 2011 will see more quality content. I’m working on a couple of different articles tright now that will be posted soon.

    BTW, I checked out your page too, suh-weet! I’m definitely interested in the warhammer wife section, as I can totally relate!

  3. No Sir, Thank you!

    We’re going to try to do something for WW weekly but I think we should probably find a new name for it given GW’s current love affair with filing suits against people…

    We’re subscribed to WCF and look forward to seeing your posts when they crop up. Happy New Year!

  4. Congratulations on having such a successful year! Wow that’s a lot of cargo containers that WCF has filled, I really like that perspective and measure of success. Here’s another way of thinking about it:

    The average carton of eggs contains one dozen farm fresh, Grade-A jumbo chicken eggs. This blog was viewed about 14,000 times in 2010. If each view were an egg, your blog would have filled more than 1,166 fully loaded egg cartons. Because of this, PETA hates your blog.

    This really is a fantastic blog and it’s always exciting to see that something new has been posted here. I’m looking forward to another great year from When Cannons Fade…, best wishes to you!

  5. Cheers mate lol! I didn’t realize that I was so, ermm, ‘eggy’ haha!
