So Mr Gill AKA @Apostlegillus on twitter is doing something really really insane for WAAC!!
I’d seen the tweets from Bear on twitter but I didn’t really know what was going on until I listened to the Fools Daily (it was actually the first time I’d listened to it).
As someone who’s personal life has yet to be touched by cancer I was really touched by what Bear had to say and his reasons for doing this. As he says our gaming ‘scene’ is a very tight one much like an extended family. So I thought of what I could do to help, I’ll be putting forward that my local gaming club York Garrison run games during the 23rd/24th Aug or donate a voucher for my commission painting business Furious painting but that’s not personal enough for me . . . . what could I do . . .
Then it came to me like a lightning bolt to the face!
Instead of gaming or giving a voucher, I thought I’d paint and entire army in those 24 hours and then auction it as a charity auction on Ebay donating the proceeds to the #WAAC. Yeah you read that an entire army painted in the 24 hours on the #WAAC event!!
So I decided to get as many people from the wargaming community involved with this so I’ll be asking for model donations for me to paint, the army I chose to paint is (insert drum roll) SKAVEN!! YEAH!! not only an entire army in a day but a Skaven army!! in a day!!
Now I know what your thinking ‘But Gill I don’t collect Skaven how can I help?’ Well I chose Skaven for a reason.
That reason is Skaven slaves . . . I can use any model to represent them! be it a dwarf, empire swordsmen hell even a chaos warrior!
Not only that Skaven warmachines can be made/converted from anything! Also most people will have bought an island of blood since 8th edition warhammer was released. Granted I may not get any models, but I know this community and I’m guessing I’ll be inundated with models.
So in a nutshell I’m giving a shout out to the Wargaming community to send me Skaven donations big or small or anything I can use to proxy in a skaven army (granted I’d prefer Skaven but anything will do)
Send me an email to furiouspainting(at)hotmail.com and I’ll send you my address to send the stuff too or follow me on twitter @apostlegillus and send me a PM.
As an afterthought and because I’m a glutton for punishment I’ll be LIVE STREAMING the 24 hours of me painting on Twitch at http://www.twitch.tv/apostlegilus
Well I hope to hear from you all soon!
You can read more from Mr Gill on Hard6 Blog.
So what are people donating? I have some spare daemons and who knows what else that I can donate. So the question is how mad is the man?
