Salute, Robots and Raffles last day!

I've lit the fuse on my Stompy War Bastards army! Sent into pacify a planet before a hive tower was built the army will be pulling itself out of the rad-wastes in the underhive! Cannot get enough of these models. And I have a lot more sitting on my desk begging for a lick of paint. Going with black, dirty white, bronze, and gold for these. Red cracked and sandy bases with bright blue OSL which should hurt the eyes if I get the contrast just so.

Salute was awesome! And as usual I go in with a couple of ideas of what I want and end up putting my mortgage at risk by buying far far too much.

Read all about it on my good friend Johns blog! For pictures and eloquence.

And finally the raffle, "Raffles last day" sounds like a boys book from the 80s, "Raffles goes to war"!
It's been beautifully moving to see the community come out in droves to donate and support, said it so much over the last month but you guys are fucking champions. With the penultimate count being £1,343.23 and a hundred and one of you joining in its been a resounding success. So much so that I am thinking about making it an annual thing. Just like Terrys books and our art, it's not going anywhere but hopefully we can make a difference every year :)

Still time to enter or enter again, just like buying raffle tickets you can buy more than one at

Thank you all!

Raffle: An emotional hobby month

Dear raffle supporters and readers,
I've been writing this post for a while in my head and am just getting around to putting it down on digital paper now. A few days ago I received this letter that I felt should be sent to everyone supporting the raffle.

When I started the raffle/charity page on just giving (www.justgiving.com/modelsForTerry) I was feeling pretty powerless to help really support the cause. I thought, maybe, I could get £50 to a good cause if I offered enough incentive. This turns out to be pretty pessimistic on my part. Within the first week we had £600, two weeks in it was closing in on £1000 and at the time of writing this we just hit £1,237.50. Not from people throwing the odd £1 for a chance at a prize but supporting a cause that has destroyed so many lives through dementia and other degenerative mental illnesses. 

I've had to stop reading the comments left on the page while I'm at work for fear of having a little cry. It is truly moving to read the stories of so many in this community that have been affected by it. My thoughts go out to you and yours, I've read every comment on the page and each one has been heartbreaking.

But there is a wonderful reminder we aren't pissing into the wind. At the end of March WE received this email. And this is really all you! Gold stars all round.

From everyone supporting or donating to the raffle your bloody heroes.

12 days to go before I draw the names of the winners! Spread the word!
