Freebootaz Support the Toys for Tots!!!

Hello everybody! I just wanted to talk briefly about a great little tradition that was started by the Freebootaz, of the 40KRadio forum, a couple years ago, and has been going strong ever since.

That is their support for Toys for Tots!

Every year, since they have started, the Freebootaz, the 40KRadio forum members, have put together charity drives in the form of donating, building and painting Warhammer 40K armies to auction. All proceeds from these auctions goes directly to the Toys for Tots charity, which has a long generous history of ensuring children in need may have a Christmas wish come true with a gift of a new toy.

This year is no different, and the Freebootaz have built and painted enough miniatures that they were able to create 4 rather large Ultramarine armies. The cherry on top of all that is a lovely scratch built plasticard Thunderhawk, similar in scale to the current Forgeworld version of the Thunderhawk.

On top of that, these auctions not only include some really nice miniatures, but some Ultramarine related extras. Each auction has something different, and all are worth checking out and bidding on, if not for the cool stuff, for the excellent charity these auctions will help.

So without further ado, here are the links to each of the auctions.

While I have not personally contributed to this, I do wish to thank the Freebootaz who were directly involved with this project for doing such a great job, and being so generous. This was obviously a labour of love for every one of them, and just watching these projects come together into a cohesive whole was a joy to see. Hopefully next year I'll be able to contribute something beyond being a cheerleader, and promoting it where I can.

Bid well and good luck!
