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.

All proceeds from these auctions go 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 3 rather large Imperial Guard armies, in 3 distinct colour schemes, as well as several super heavies, including an LED lit Baneblade, and a Forgeworld Macharius!

Each auction has something different, and all are worth checking out and bidding on.

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

Once again, kudos to 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.

Bid well and good luck! And if you don't win, consider going to the Toys For Tots website and making a donation.

EDIT: The auction descriptions have links to picture galleries. They were broken yesterday, but have since been fixed. Click on the links until they open up a viewing gallery.
