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,

Hey guys,

So we are just over a week into the fund raising extravaganza and I just want to say a massive massive thank you to everyone who has donated thus far. This has now exceeded my expectations and the actual process has just been highly enjoyable.

Firstly, if you can’t be bothered to scroll down, check the original post here – you will find full details of how to get involved there.

Here is where we are at with the “stretch goals” currently…

£400 – The fully painted Vampire Counts army will be given away (see pics below or via link above)
£450 – Vampire Counts army book and ltd ed magic cards added!
£500 – Tomb Kings army book and ltd ed magic cards added!
£550 – Sartosan Vampire model added – I will personally paint this to fit in with the army. Most people prefer to field the Vampire over the Ghoul King so I’m sure the recipient will be pleased. Lovely model as well.
£600 – Converted VC themed Casket of Souls added – I will personally paint this to fit in with the army. This just became an Undead Legions army!!

Currently we are sat at the huge figure of **£628**. This is amazing. It also means I need some more “stretch goals”. So lets see (I don’t for one second think all of these will be reached by the way!!);

£650 – 30 Mantic Zombies will be added, painted by me to match the army.
£700 – 30 Mantic Zombies will be added, painted by me to match the army (so 60 total!).
£750 – 30 Mantic Zombies will be added, painted by me to match the army (so 90 total!!).
£800 – Mannfred von Carstein, Mortarch of Night will be added, painted by me to match the army!!!

So there we go! As I said, this has already gotten bigger than I’d hoped, but please don’t stop now!! Someone is going to be made very happy in return.

*Please note that I cannot promise a timeframe for when the additional models will be painted. I’m happy to send the army first and the other bits when complete though*

Here is a couple of pics of the models added so far;


Once again, thanks so much, and please read the previous post carefully before donating,

Hey there guys and girls,

Hope everyone is well. Just about to start editing Episode 69 (oh yeh!) but wanted to post this exciting news first.

For years, Podcasters have kindly asked for donations from their listeners. These donations can be for a multitude of things; gear, hosting, travel (often to overseas events), tickets, models, beer, you get the idea. Whilst such schemes always get their detractors, I think (as an avid Podcast listener myself) many fans are happy to give a little back in lieu of the time put into free content!

So I’m off to America again in January, to the simply fantastic Waaagh! Paca event, and I cant wait.

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). Your donations will be used towards my flight, my drink and potentially a new army.

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**

However, it does not end there.

If you are kind enough to donate to basically allow me to have fun, I feel like I should give something back (Yes, other than all that mega mega TBS goodness!).

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.

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

The army was painted to a good tabletop standard by commission painter Chloe Clegg (she’s very good, you can find her on Facebook as CLC Painting). Its Strigoi themed and has a number of features that make it “pop” on the tabletop; namely the blood effects and the glowing eyes. Here is what’s in the initial army;

Ghoul King – Plastic model from Terrorgheist box, painted to an even stronger standard.

Necromancer – Plastic model

Banshee – Out of production metal model

2x 30 Ghouls – Fantastic out of production metal models with magnetized movement trays.

8 Crypt Horrors – Plastic models with magnetized movement tray (this will be painted!).

2x 2 Fell Bats – Metal models with magnetized movement tray.

3x 1 Spirit Hosts – Plastic Mantic models with magnetized individual movement trays.

Varghulf – Metal model

2x Terrorgheist – Plastic models, one kitbashed with the Zombie Dragon part for variety.

There is approximately £300 of models (hard to be exact with the OOP stuff) here alone.

Here are some photos, apologies for the poor image quality;







On top of the basic army I have plenty of other bits including army books, magic cards and additional models. The more that is donated the more I will decide to give away in return. Needless to say I will also post this to you wherever in the world you live!

The first goal we are aiming for is £400, once that is reached I’ll let you know and start giving info on how much more we’ll need before you can add for example, 90 Zombies to the army (Please note that if a minimum of £400 is not raised I will return all donations).

To decide who I give away the army to I will put everyone’s names onto a spreadsheet and get on a Skype video call with a couple of random impartials and roll some dice! This will all happen on the evening of Friday 12th December, obviously you can continue to donate after this date if you so desire!

Please remember not to include a note with your donations and of course it goes without saying, massive thanks in advance to all the kind souls donating 😉

If anyone is genuinely confused by all this, please e-mail me at lunatic_pandora@btinternet.com and I can explain further.

Much love,
Chris x
