I play with a fairly mixed bag of psychotic cats individuals: a few old hands clashing with the newer generation of gamers, while those with a foot in either camp watch with bemusement from the sidelines.

Donate to Doctors Without Borders and have a chance to win a 40k Army!

The Dave Taylor Miniatures Blog is running an AWESOME promotion and charity event contest.

They are giving away an entire hand painted Warhammer 40k army in the style of the Storm Wardens, a yet to be released Space Marines Chapter coming in the new Death Watch RPG.  To enter, all you have to do is give a dollar.  Every dollar is another chance to win in their random drawing.  Click the link above or here for more details.

Even if you don’t play 40k, the Fantasy Flight Warhammer based RPG is an incredible game.  I played a previous version, and their combat system is divine for its ability to handle detailed hit locations quickly and fun.  I know I could use an army of figures to bring it to my table.

This is an insane value, and if you don’t win, hey, you did something nice for the world.
