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

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:

EXCITING UPDATE for BURNING OF PROSPERO!

The NOVA Open Charitable Foundation offers special thanks to long-time supporter of the NOCF Charity Army Raffles, Jake Schneider, for digitally sculpting a very cool set of unique Vexilla for our Thousand Sons. In these photos, you can see a Legion Vexilla (on a new, additional model painted by Brian Sobb) and a Squad Vexilla (attached to one of the existing models painted by Brian) – which raises the total number of models in this raffle to 48!
 
Jake has been digitally sculpting for a while now, and his work can be found on his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DarkWolfStudios/
Nice side note: Jake, who lives in Tasmania, was one of the first NOCF raffle winners in 2013!
