Hey Folks! Just thought id let one of my fav forums in on a free give away raffle im doing to give back to the community after all the very kind support everyone has shown me. Its made me realize we are one big family so giving back to you guys seems to be the best thing to do for all the support ive gotten.

All you need to do is be on my list of followers from which I pick winners from randomly out of a hat. But dont let that stop you from posting comments and giving advice. The more advice from the community, the better the blog can become.

The last months raffle went very well. 5 winners including some really nice stuff. This time based on donations for a former winner, a FW worker, a GW store manager and Galaxy Gobbo, this raffle takes the cake by far!

A new website that's going to be opening very soon, Galaxy Gobbo, has been watching the raffle, what I'm doing it all for and liked what they have seen. They have offered to send me one of the shiny new Stormravens. Think of Galaxy Gobbo as the ‘Groupon’ or ‘Living Social’ of wargaming. They plan on launching a lot of the hottest deals on the net.

Also today, when I was getting shipping addresses for the prize winners for the Jan. raffle, an interesting conversation came up with one of them. Farsight, a very cool guy from Utah loved what I was doing here and loves the idea of "paying it forward". So, since he won himself the Warmachine set, and after talking to me about Gobbo sending a Stormraven, he wants to send a little something for that raffle as well. And a wonderful something it is!That's right! Hes sending a set of Mark 5 Heresy armor from Forgeworld and even a pack of Heresy Era Bolters to go with them!

Image

And the bolters to go with them!

Image

So.. the Raffle now has one more item. This will be the last item up for this months raffle but its a neat one. Hes offering a GW Virtual Gift card that will be emailed directly to the winner, allowing them to go straight to GW and buy whatever they want.

It will be for 75 dollars.

Those that aren't familiar with the virtual gift cards, here is the info from GW

Quote:
Games Workshop Virtual Gift Vouchers

If you want to buy someone a gift but are not sure what to buy or need a gift in a hurry, then our Virtual Gift Vouchers are the perfect solution: allowing the recipient to choose their own gifts from our complete range of products. Once you have purchased a Virtual Gift Voucher it will be instantly delivered, via email, ready for immediate use. You can send multiple vouchers to a single recipient, simply order each separately, entering your chosen recipient's email address.

Games Workshop Virtual Gift Vouchers can only be redeemed online.

* Customizable with a personal message
* Sent immediately via e-mail
* Can be used straight away by the recipient


Or a direct link to the GW site here:

[url="http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/giftVouchers.jsp?prodId=prod1590019"]http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/giftVouchers.jsp?prodId=prod1590019[/url]

So in total now there will be 4 more winners (those that won last month aren't entered into this months raffle). The 4 winners will each pick between:

A new in box, un opened Stormraven
or
A 5 man set of Mark V Heresy Armor WITH 5 Umbra Bolters to go with them, also from FW.
or
A $75.00 US Virtual GW gift card.
or
A brand new unbuilt FW Malcador Tank.


So now we have 4 prizes for the February raffle!

Just like before I will pick 4 random people from my list of followers. Ill email them both and each will send me a priority list of which item they want most, either the Stormraven, the FW Heresy Set, Malcador FW Tank UNBUILT or the 75 dollar Virtual Gift Card. If all 4 people want the same item first, whoever replies first gets it. The other person will get the second item and the 3rd person, the 3rd item and so forth.

Good luck to everyone! (except the winners of last raffle, you guys already won!)

UPDATE!!!!!

Ok Folks, as some of you have noticed there have been alot of people offering items they own for the raffle as a way for they themselves to give back. Well,After debating it heavily, I've decided to allow one more person. Its actually a member here who wants to remain anonymously.
Hes offering something that's very one of a kind in this situation. He wants to offer a Malachor Tank from FW. The model itself has been opened and cleaned but nothing has been pinned, glued or any other form of construction. He simply made sure the parts were all there. After switching to Eldar, he offered it to me for the raffle since in his own words "work has been beyond well and its a unit I no longer need and would love to give it to a proper home. He does ask it goes to a Guard player but other then that, things are set.

Again, no email needed, no spam, no mailing lists, simply a way to join up to win free swag and if you want, leave comments on my work as it helps my motivation greatly.

Thanks for listening to my long post and I hope many of you find your way there and win some awesome swag. Plus if this 2nd raffle goes well, the next one will blow you guys away with the amount of AWESOME items that will go up for raffle.

Less the 3 days left to enter and ive had alot of questions about it being a raffle so does that mean people have to pay either to enter or to get the prize shipping if they should be one of the winners. The anwser to both is, of course not. It wouldnt be a pay it forward, doing a good deed, raffle if anyone had to pay anything.

So to update everyone:

***Please Note, this raffle has no catches, tricks or anything like that. Its FREE to enter the raffle and even costs nothing to relieve your prize should you so win, even world wide. basically, it really is a free give away. Its based on the movie Pay ir Forward where if everyone does n good deeds for each other, the world can become a much better place. To enter all it takes is to be a follower of [url="http://miniaturewargameconversions.blogspot.com/"]this[/url] blog which I pick winners from randomly.***


All the prizes for the raffle that lasts less then 3 days can be seen above.

Good luck everyone and enjoy.

To enter simply follow the [url="http://miniaturewargameconversions.blogspot.com/"]blogspot[/url]as the winners are picked from that. If this raffle goes as well as the first, there will be a third and while I cant talk specifics, the prizes are even better then the last 2.

Hey guys and gals!

Its that time that you have all been waiting for. Time to announce the winners of this months free "Pay it Forward" give away! Before announcing the winners let me say I want to thank everyone for the support, all the comments, the donations towards this give away, towards the first one and towards the one that is starting today. I want to think the web stores, the individual people and everyone else that's left comments of support. We are all one big family and its great to see I wasn't wrong.

So without further waiting!

*Drum roll please!*

The winners this month are: (usernames from the follower list and some of you dont use the same names as on forums and blogs.)

Datbedaone
Julio Scott
Daniel W
Galvetron32

For those that didn't win, fear not. You are automatically entered into this months raffle which will go on until the 7th of march. Winners from the last 2 give aways are not eligible in the running.

For those that helped spread the word, and you know who you are ;) You are entered into a smaller raffle as well for a 50 dollar gift card that was donated 2 days ago, a bit to late to officially enter it into this raffle that just ended. I will notify each on of you as well and then pick that winner this week after Ive reached you all.

Now for this months prizes!

***Please Note, this raffle has no catches, tricks or anything like that. Its FREE to enter the raffle and even costs nothing to relieve your prize should you so win, even world wide. basically, it really is a free give away. Its based on the movie Pay it Forward where if everyone does good deeds for each other, the world can become a much better place. To enter all it takes is to be a follower of this blog which I pick winners from randomly.***

There will be a total of 8 winners. The prizes are as follows:

2 Battleforce box sets for either 40k OR Warhammer. 1 Battleforce for 1 winner. The winners can pick ANY Battleforce they wish.

Sabol army case, details can be found here:
http://www.saboldesigns.net/armytransport.html

KR case, (still working the details on exactly which one or if the winner will have a choice since they offer cases for different games) Info can be found here:
http://www.krmulticase.com/mainint.html

8 Autographed BL books. Ill have the exact list of which ones as soon as they arrive as in the email I was told it would be a surprise "to die for". I will separate the 8 books into 4 groups allowing 4 separate winners. Each winner of the books will get 2.

So that's it, this give away will have 8 total winners, possibly 1 or 2 more depending on how talks with various people and stores goes. But as of right now, I personally feel this is the best give away yet as it allows the most people to win, and its chalk full of things people can use.

I will post more info over the next few days as final details on other items are worked out.

In the mean time, keep up the comments and spreading the word! Keep in mind folks, the more interest there is, the more give always there can be, meaning even more future winners!

Updated as of Feb 19th 2011


Ok Folks, its give away update time!!!


Sorry its taken me a few days to get organized, there have been alot of additional items offered up by web stores and even 3 VERY kind followers.


So now here is the most updated list for the prizes for this months give away:


***Please Note, this raffle has no catches, tricks or anything like that. Its FREE to enter the raffle and even costs nothing to relieve your prize should you so win, even world wide. basically, it really is a free give away. Its based on the movie Pay it Forward where if everyone does good deeds for each other, the world can become a much better place. To enter all it takes is to be a follower of this blog which I pick winners from randomly.***


There will be a total of 12 winners now. Yes I did say twelve. The prizes are as follows:


2 Battleforce box sets for either 40k OR Warhammer. 1 Battleforce for 1 winner. The winners can pick ANY Battleforce they wish.


--------------------------------------------------------------------


Sabol army case, details can be found here:


http://www.saboldesigns.net/armytransport.html


--------------------------------------------------------------------


KR case, (still working the details on exactly which one or if the winner will have a choice since they offer cases for different games) Info can be found here:


http://www.krmulticase.com/mainint.html


--------------------------------------------------------------------


8 Autographed BL books. Ill have the exact list of which ones as soon as they arrive as in the email I was told it would be a surprise "to die for". I will separate the 8 books into 4 groups allowing 4 separate winners. Each winner of the books will get 2.


--------------------------------------------------------------------


1 Bjron the Fellhanded Dreadnought - A donation by a follower! Its for 1 Bjorn the Fell handed dreadnought. Its been opened and stripped but is a great model for any space wolf player or dreadnought lover.


--------------------------------------------------------------------


Another follower, this time from 40kforums.com is offering:


Prince Tyrion, High Elf special character


http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catal ... prod790840


(Original starter kit for Khador, pre-plastic models)


https://store.privateerpress.com/index. ... rodID=8956


and he may even possibly donate a few more blisters. Ill keep everyone updated.


--------------------------------------------------------------------


The final follower this month is offering up a nice treat. A brand new in box Imperial Guard Shadowsword/Stormlord Kit!


http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catal ... rod1860243


--------------------------------------------------------------------


And now, the best for last (in my humble opinion.)


1 Warhammer Fantasy Boxed army. Yup, an entire boxed army. The selection will be limited to whats on hand at the store and to a fantasy army but other then that, let your selection go wild! There is a SMALL chance it can be for a 40k army but I wont know that until a winner is picked.
