So here we have it…the long awaited return of Big Dogger Diese!!

As well as the big man, myself and Dommy Four Fingers are joined by a second special guest in the form of Chippy Rick for a super (read: too) long Tournament report episode! Stay tuned for the following and lots lots more;

** Blood and Glory report (featuring some classic Ben Diesel battle reports!)
** An update on Diesel’s neverending army project; The Vampire Counts Empire (VCE)
** Laddish behaviour – Please note that this was tongue in cheek!
** Some of the poorest evening shenanigans stories ever; embarrassing!!
** Really bad sound on this one I’m afraid guys. As you’d expect from the Return of Diesel, there are background noises aplenty, including lots of eating! Most of it got left it, partially for the lolz! Ricky had a bad cough which again was tricky to fully edit out and obviously had to keep the energy up by eating crisps! Finally, due to number of people, I was on the squeaky chair! Sorry people. However, this will be significantly better than the next show (recorded in a pub)!
** Shout outs…

Hey there boys and girls,

The Undead Legions #notaraffle has now all wrapped up with the winners…um recipients, being announced on Twitter this past Sunday.

Before that, I just need to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who donated. I raised a staggering £912!!

This is way beyond my wildest dreams and pretty much pays for the entire Waaagh! Paca trip. Fantastic stuff.

The draw was done on a Skype Videocall with Joe Hadfield (@TheJoeHadfield) rolling the dice and Neil Peckett (@TrimControls) checking the Spreadsheet. Neither donated so were completely impartial. Thanks to the both of them for assisting.

Due to the enormous total raised as well as the main prize, I was also able to give away 3 of the upcoming TBS T-shirts (these will be going on general preorder later tonight). The lucky people were…

Tom Hall (@Ironblaster1)
Jack Chapman (@Gelmarus)
Greg Farrell (@gjf123)

On to the big prize, and perhaps controversially it was won by….

David Witek (@Garagehammer)

Hahaha! Fantastic stuff. If you don’t know David, please be sure to check out his brilliant Podcast www.garagehammer.com – funnily enough this was announced mere minutes before I got on a Skype call to record on David’s show. His reaction was brilliant, as a big VC player already he was clearly thrilled.

Anyway, that’s about everything I think!
Wow, what a ride. Thanks again, much love,

Chris

Where oh where to start…this has been mental, completely mental!!

There are now less than 24 hours remaining and we are up to the simply bananas total of £849!! Please check out the posts just a little bit below to see the initial army. On top of this, the following will now be included;

**Army Books and Magic Cards for Vampire Counts and Tomb Kings
**Sartosan Vampire
**VC themed converted Casket of Souls
**90 Zombies
**Mannfred von Carstein, Mortarch of Night

All of the models above will be painted by myself to match the rest of the army. I will probably send the initial army to the recipient and then follow it up with these once they are finished. Its quite an undertaking.

I have no further models to add as “stretch goals”, but as you’ll soon see I am going to be putting up pre orders for the first TBS T-shirts. So what I’m gonna do is for every multiple of £25 that is donated (started for £850, so only £1 more required) I will pick another person who will receive a T-shirt.

For example…

£850 – A person (other than the recipient of the army) gets a new TBS T-shirt
£875 – A person (other than the recipient of the army) gets a new TBS T-shirt
£900 – A person (other than the recipient of the army) gets a new TBS T-shirt
£925 – A person (other than the recipient of the army) gets a new TBS T-shirt

…and so on (as if haha!!). If the same name is drawn, it will be redrawn so there are different recipients for each item. Hopefully that makes sense.

The drawing of recipients will take place on Saturday morning via a Skype video call. Follow my Twitter @the_black_sun for details as they unfold. It promises to be super exciting!

Please scroll down for photos and full details, but here is a snap shot of what you have to do to get involved;

To the right of this post is a Paypal donate button. I would kindly ask that if you get any small measure of enjoyment from what me and my boys produce, you click the button and donate any amount, small or large, in multiples of £1 (please note).

Aside from this, please do not write any comment whatsoever in your donation (other than your name if you use someone else’s account). I cannot stress this point enough. You can also send Paypal as gift to lunatic_pandora@btinternet.com (THIS OPTION IS PREFERRED PLEASE) – the same applies though; Do not put a message (other than name if need be).

**EDIT – a Twitter handle in the note is also acceptable**

So for every multiple of £1 you donate I will give you give a like for like number of chances to be the recipient of the Vampire Counts / Undead Legions army below (or potentially a T-shirt)

This is not a raffle and you are not buying tickets. This is bro’s helping out bro’s.

It’s worth reading all these posts fully before donating. Please be clear its a donation and please please do not use a note with your payment!!!

You have until 10pm GMT Friday 12th December 2014 for your donation to be included in this.

I think I’ve covered everything? Please e-mail any questions to lunatic_Pandora@btinternet.com

Much love,
Chris x
