The Fisher House Foundation Thanks You!

The NOCF represents the world-wide tabletop wargamer community.

So far, in 2017, you, the tabletop wargamer have raised $48,000 for charities, $9,000 of which went to Fisher House Foundation. Many of you are active and former military, and we not only thank you for your support and donations to NOCF, but also for your service.  Without men and women like you it wouldn’t even be possible for us to enjoy the freedom to play tabletop wargames.

Below is a thank you letter from Fisher House Foundation. This is the impact that you make when you purchase raffle tickets or come up to the NOCF Lounge and drink for charity, bid on Silent Auction items or make donations.

The Houston Food Bank Thanks You!

The NOCF represents the world-wide tabletop wargamer community.

So far, in 2017, you, the tabletop wargamer have raised $48,000 for charities, $5,000 of which went to the Houston Food Bank. Initially the Houston Food Bank was not one of the summer charities, but due to the massive damage caused by Hurricane Harvey in August and early September things changed and a dozen NOVA Open attendees living in the Houston area were forced to cancel. While at NOVA Open (August 29th – September 2nd) the NOCF Board of Directors heard about this and decided to run a one-day fundraiser for HFB; a great organization supporting the victims and families of the hurricane.

You all were extremely generous in your giving and we raised $5,000 that night.  Below is a thank you letter from the Houston Food Bank. This is the impact that you make when you purchase raffle tickets or come up to the NOCF Lounge and drink for charity, bid on Silent Auction items or make donations.

So next time you think of NOCF, think of the “compassionate force” that it represents, and none of it would be possible without you!

From all of us at NOCF, thank you; we are proud to represent you!

HFB Thank You 11-2017

Today’s Featured Model: Pegaso, Jacques de Molay, Grandmaster

Today’s Featured 2017 Charity Model:

Jacques De Molay was the 23rd and last Grand Master of the Knights Templar, and on Friday, 13 October 1307, Molay and sixty of his Templar brother knights were arrested by order of the French King, Philip IV; they were all charged with heresy, (I’m looking in your direction Sons of Horus). One such charge against Molay and his men were that the cord worn by the neophyte Templar’s day and night was consecrated by wrapping it around an idol in the form of a human head with a great beard, and that this idol was adored with…Wait! What?
An idol in the form of a human head?
Am I the only one seeing the connection here? Was there some truth to this charge?

How do you explain this then:

Jacques de Molay
(Painted by Roman Lappat of Massive Voodoo)

 

I’m sorry, did you say…Voodoo?

Seriously! Do I need to draw you all a picture?

 

A cord wrapped in a human head with a great beard? A bust of Grandmaster de Molay? The same man who placed a curse on King Philip IV, his family, and Pope Clement the V? Did you know that all of these people died within years of de Molay’s pronounced curse, (Some in less than a year of its proclamation)? And yet this bust…or shall we say head…is painted by a man from “Massive….Voodoo“? Each of these people had a V in their name.  Voodoo starts with a…wait for it…wait a bit more…just a bit now…V.

Need we say more?

 

This raffle is in support of:

Doctors without Borders / Medecins sans Frontieres

Check out more of what Massive…Voodoo did with this model here…if you dare. Buy your tickets for this raffle or feel the wrath of Massive…Voodoo.

 

Today’s Featured Model: Reaper Miniatures, Floating Mage

Today’s Featured 2017 Charity Model:

What’s the difference between a mage and a witch?

Our mage floats! But, what else floats?

Bread, apples, very small rocks, yes, even cider! Other things that float: great gravy, cherries, mud, churches, lead and…a duck!  <Dun Dun Duuun!>

So logically, if this:

Reaper Miniatures, Floating Mage

[Painted by Patrick Chambers]

…weighs the same as a duck…it’s made of wood, and therefore…

A witch!

There’s only one way to find out if our Reaper Floating Mage is actually a mage and not a witch, and that’s to purchase tickets for it, win, then, after receiving it, weigh it to see if it weighs the same as a duck*.  See more pictures and purchase tickets here.

This raffle is in support of:

Doctors without Borders / Medecins sans Frontieres

Purchase tickets or we will send some ‘knights’ to come and indict you for witchcraft.  You’ve been warned.

*Duck not included.

Today’s Featured Model: Terminator Chaplain (New pictures!)

Today’s Featured 2017 Charity Model:

For those of you out there that think neophyte is another word for “meatshield”. To those of you who kill 50 heretics after being deployed from your Drop Pod before the doors open. To everyone who keeps a pillow under your plasma rifle. To all who listen, smile, and agree, only to declare exterminate anyway.

It has been brought to our attention that “The Purge” is about to begin:

What better ally to suffer not the heretic than the:

Well look no further my disease infected…friends…and cast your eyes upon this wonder!
