Well, I decided to have a pop at the competition and ended up winning. A couple of days ago, said Anglo-Saxon dropped through my letterbox, making it all the way from Sweden to the UK in one piece.
He's now taken pride of place in my Anglo-Danish army for Saga and will be leading them to many crushing defeats in the near future.
Thanks for running the competition Jonas, you're a generous chap. And a rather fine painter!
Jonas' generosity has started me thinking about running a competition of my own, so keep your eyes peeled...
