Freebootaz Toys for Tots 2011!

Hello everybody! Once again the Christmas season is upon us. And once again, the Freebootaz, of the 40KRadio forum, are continuing their annual tradition of support for Toys for Tots!

Every year, since they have started, the Freebootaz, the 40KRadio forum members, have been running charity drives in the form of donating, building and painting Warhammer 40K armies to auction. This activity actually takes place all year long, as members decide what new army to do, dedicate units and models, decide on the painting schemes, and then spend the rest of the year up to the very beginning of December assembling, converting, and painting their donations.

Editorial: 40K In The News? Another Perspective.

Recently, I talked about an article written about 40K, the hobby, and the people, by a journalist in Greece, and the negative attitude that journalist took towards the hobby and the people.

Well today I offer an alternate perspective. This wonderful little video by students in the Film and Video Production program at SAIT Polytechnic, is chock full of interviews, sweeping scenic views of wonderfully painted armies and miniatures, and showcases a very interesting event that was run in Calgary in 2011, depicting the opening campaign during the Horus Heresy, in the Istvan system. All of this wrapped around with excellent production value.
