40K Army Raffle for Charity!

Via From the Warp, here is a great project to raise money for Doctors Without Borders.  Here is the link to click to donate when you're done (since FTW's wasn't quite up as of posting time this morning): http://santacruzwarhammer.blogspot.com/.  Look at the top right corner.

"The Storm Wardens are a new Space Marine chapter from the yet to be released Death Watch RPG. Together with Games Workshop, Fantasy Flight Games (Horus Heresy, Wings of War) has been developing the game which will be released this summer.

We approached the folks designing the Death Watch game while planning this project, and told them we were thinking of building a Storm Wardens army, and they loved the idea. They have been working with us in getting the look of the army just right and giving us some great unreleased fluff and imagery.

We are going to build a complete Storm Wardens Space Marine army with a decked out HQ, Marines, Veterans, Scouts, Terminators, and a bunch of vehicles, a massive army that any commander would be proud to field.

You will be able to see the army units come together and follow the army build progress through links to all the builders blogs on our "Storm Wardens" mini blog roll.

Who will be working on the army?

Dave Taylor
Thomas Wynn (Wynn Studios)
Mister Justin (Secret Weapon Miniatures)
Mik (Miks Minis)
Mike & John (Santa Cruz Warhammer)
and last but not least, your's truly.

Along with the blogger build team, we are going after some related hobby retailers to give up some loot to add to the army prize. Secret Weapon Miniatures is donating all the custom bases, and Chessex has already sent us the custom dice.

What can you do?

Well, you can give us your money. You can buy tickets for the raffle drawing at the top right of this page or any of the other participating bloggers, using PayPal or a credit card. Each donated dollar becomes one ticket, the more you buy the better your chance of winning, and more money for charity.

We will randomly draw the winner in mid July.

What if I don't have any money, but I still want to help?

Dig around under the couch cushions or under the seat of your car, put on some dark sunglasses and sell pencils out of a cup on the street corner, or even sell some extra Warhammer minis on Ebay, then use that cash to buy your raffle tickets.

You can also help by linking to this project in your blog, telling your friends and other gamers, mention it at your gaming club or even posting about it in your favorite forums, this will help us get the most exposure we can, so we can raise more money for charity.

If you have a small business (or know someone who does) that might have a product to donate that would be great to add to this army, contact us about a feature during the build.

Why should I help out?

If you have ever read something on our blogs that you thought was cool, gave you a good idea, showed you how to do something better, downloaded a free drop pod template, used the Barter Bucket, or perhaps you even got something from us for free and you are feeling a bit guilty about it.... well, now is your chance to give something back, pay it forward, return a good turn.... well you know.

Oh yeah, and you could win an entire finished army, by giving $1 to a good charity.

Where does the money go?

The money will be donated to Doctors Without Borders, and actually help people. We chose Doctors without Borders because their cause is a global pursuit to help people in need, where ever help is needed most, and they have a good track record with getting the $ where it does the most good.

So there you have it. I hope you are all as exited about this as we are, its been tough keeping it a secret.

So.......who wants a new army?"

This is a great project for those who are doing it, and I hope I can help get the word out in whatever tiny way about this fantastic project.  Go buy some raffle tickets!
