New charity army project!

I would like to announce the newest charity army painting project that I have had the pleasure to be part of!


Redemption of the Fallen: An army painting charity project in support of Doctors Without Borders.

To see the site for the new project GO HERE.

Here is the full banner.



I am very proud to have been part of two army painting projects in the past. The Storm Wardens, and the Heroes of Armageddon.  I think in total we raised about 50,000 bucks for Doctors Without Borders.

This year we have a new organization running the show. Believe me, it is a HUGE amount of work to coordinate a project like this. But the guys at Nova have taken it on, x3!  There are three armies being created for this project.

Also this year, as a nice change, TheWarstore has provided all of the models to be painted.  Previously those were out of pocket expenses.

So what are we painting?

A Dark Angels army of 1850 base points.  This army will include all elements that make Dark Angels special, plus more great stuff like a custom display board!

Here is a work in progress of some of the artwork on one of the Rhinos By Dan Withers from Valhalla Games.



Yes that is hand painted work, and no it is not mine!  It is freaking beautiful though.


And here is a tactical squad by Tim Williamson WIP.




Here is how you can enter to win...

VISIT HERE And purchase tickets.  For every single dollar you donate, you will be entered into the drawing once.  Donate 100 bucks, and you will be entered 100 times.  The more you donate, the better your chances of winning!  The drawing will take place at The Nova Open on 9/1/13. You do NOT need to be present to win. The armies will be shipped WORLD WIDE by 9/6/13. So get in on it!

What am I doing?  I will be painting a Ravenwing Bike Squad and a Ravenwing Apothecary.  I just started so I don't have any WIP yet, but I should have the Apothecary done soon.  More on that later!

I am excited to be part of this project and I can't wait to see the finished result.  Check back often for more WIP and check the site, there are links to all of the artists.

Dave, the participants were handled mostly in house. For the Dark Angels project, most of the guys were my team from the Heroes of Armageddon project with a couple great additions. But you make a good point. Maybe I will create a database of painters willing to take part in these things. I know for the Heroes project there were a LOT of guys who wanted in. There still may even be room in this one as people have real life things that pop up and take priority.

a charity database sounds a great idea. would love to contribute again as i enjoyed feeling like i was part of something last time and you guys do a great job on these challenges.
Will have to do a write up on this one for the blog this week and try to get some traffic over to you (im sure 3 extra people will be good :) )
thanks for the quick reply
