Happy 1st Birthday!

It was a year ago today that I first launched the Corbanian 1st into the blogosphere with this post. A year on, I've got to say it's one of the best things I've ever done in the hobby. Like most, I came into blogging as a refugee from the various forums out there, wanting to make a place of my own for my hobby on the interweb. I could never have believed pressing 'post' that first time would lead to so much fun and so many friends.

I'd like to say a few thank you's on this special day. First and foremost, FTW Ron, who without his work on build the FTW community, no one would have ever found this blog, thanks matey! Secondly, Admiral Drax, who encouraged me greatly in the earlier days by posting regular comments, even if his first was just one word! Thanks for the encouragement mate.

Finally, my followers, all 175 (OMFG!!!), that's you lot! I find it hard to believe that that many people would be interested in my army or thoughts on the hobby, but it's the real driver for me with this blog. Without you guys and your regular comments, I honestly don't think I'd have made it this far. So, thank you guys, I really do appreciate it!

So peeps, this years been interesting, and I can't wait to see what the next brings, both here on Corbania Prime and on your blogs. Keep posting guys, and I'll do the same ;-)

Congrats on the one year anniversary. Hopefully the next year will be filled with more of your custom conversions and terrain.

Congrats on your one year mark! I only recently got into the miniatures side of GW after spending years reading their books and just being aware of the hobby, but blogs like yours are what inspires me to attempt to start my own. It might seem like idle musings, but the tips, tricks, and advice that you have picked up and shared on here comes in handy!

I'm shocked to learn that your blog is only a year old. Since I see you as a pillar of the blogging community, I'd have figured you've been doing this forever.

It's amazing how much you've accomplished in such a short amount of time. Here's to another year!

I love that tank, i'ts given me the best'est idea involving an old Ideal boardgame tank, some wood-glue and a tub of Hundreds & Thousands!!!

Congrats dude, it's crazy how things can progress from one year to the next. I remember near the start of your blogging you got me into it, obviously being more consistent than me.

That in the end is what this blogging lark is all about, consistently producing interesting and constructive blogs. I'd say from your following and froma personal stand point as a follower and friend, you have and do just that.

The world is your oyster as they say. :-p
