the wait is over. The Heroes of Armageddon project started in April and now, almost 4 months later, we have accomplished what we set out to do: 4 armies modeled and painted to the highest standards. We have here the true Heroes of Armageddon: the Steel Legion and Blood Angels opposite Ghazghkull Thraka’s Horde and the Wazdakka Gutsmek’s Speed Freaks.
From the start of this project, we have tried to stay close to the 3000 point goal, but as you will see, some armies are bigger, some are smaller. All in all, it has been a tremendous effort, having models come from all over the American continent, from Hawaii to Canada to Virginia.
We have done this to raise money for Doctors without Borders, an organisation that sends their people out into the most dangerous places on earth, to help the helpless and try to keep them alive and healthy. They need support and our incredible gaming community has stepped up to the plate. This sunday we will reveal the total amount raised, which will be very exciting. After that the armies will travel to Games Day in Chicago on July 30th to be displayed on a custom built 6×8 foot gaming table, built by Brian Niro from Gentleman’s Ones.
Scroll down to see the custom table WIP images and links.
BUT we are not done yet: if you haven’t donated, do so now. If you already gave some, maybe give again…the prizes are worth it: you could win one of these four armies:
All the miniatures for the four armies are on resin bases donated and shipped by Secret Weapon Miniatures and Dragon Forge Design. Both owners Justin and Jeff also built models for the Steel Legion army.
Here are the Blood Angels, built by Jawaballs and his team
Ghazghkull Thraka’s Horde, painted by the Santa Cruz Warhammer Gaming Group and FTW Games,
And the speedfreaks under guidance of Wazdakka Gutsmek, built and painted by Goatboy and his team
As you may have noticed there are place holders in each of the armies, as these models are finished and photos are released, this page will be updated to display those models as well.
NOW let’s have a closer look at the armies. We have set up individual pages for each of the armies with large, detailed photos and all the names of the people responsible, please check it out and leave comments. I am sure everyone will be delighted to hear from you all
Here we go (but make sure you come back here after viewing the armies, there is lot’s more in the bottom of this post):
This coming Sunday, the 24th, we will draw FOUR winners, one for each army.
In addition to the models, there are extra prizes for the winners:
Each army will come in the amazing Battle Foam PACK1520 XL protective carrying case
Gale Force Nine created custom templates for the armies, with four different colors.
Each winner will get a dozen unique dice, designed just for their new army and made by Chessex.
In addition to all this, Silver Compass Designs has laser cut custom game markers for all four armies. Here is the Steel Legion set:
