CHARITY - Two Dark Age forces to benefit Doctors Without Borders!

I am very pleased to announce that the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation (NOCF) has partnered with CoolMiniOrNot (CMON) to present this excellent raffle opportunity. 

I recently had the good fortune to paint up two, 1000+ point forces for the excellent game Dark Age, and then take the two forces over to Northern Ireland to visit the guys at Beasts of War. These two forces were used in quite a few of the 27 different videos we shot while we were there. 

And now, a couple of months later, you have the opportunity to get these forces for yourself. Today you can go to the NOCF site (HERE) and purchase tickets to win them. The tickets are $5 each, and here's a limit of just 300 per force, giving everyone involved a much better chance of winning some cool toy soldiers than any other raffle you are likely to enter! All proceeds will be donated to Doctors Without Borders. 

Here's a look at the forces:

 St. Isaac himself, in his Ajax suit

Captain Cora Machariel, and three Controllers

 The Prometheus

Two Centipedes

 A Strike and a Strike Leader

 Two Firestorms

Dragyri - The Ice Caste

A Death's Device and a Spirit Lord

Two Soul Searchers

A Blizzard and a Frostbite

 A Soul Warden

A Greater Ice Elemental and three Hailkin (cast in translucent blue resin)

Tickets for both forces go on sale today, and will be available until Saturday, May 7, when we'll announce the winners at the CMON Expo 2016.

Just like every other NOCF army raffle, you can buy tickets from anywhere in the world, and we'll ship the models to anywhere in the world in a sturdy KR Multicase. All proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders.

If you are thinking about getting into Dark Age, or have been playing for years, this is a great opportunity to support a great cause (DWB) and possibly win some great models along the way. Please purchase raffle tickets and please share this far and wide!



  1. Beautifully done, Dave - those are going to make some raffler very happy. Awesome stuff!

    1. Thanks, mate! Make sure you pick up a couple of tickets ; )

  2. Nice work Dave! These guys look great!

  3. I cant say that sculpt wise they are my favourite models, but the paint scheme looks great!

    1. I love the St Isaac models (and most of the resculpted ranges), but I can see how the Ice Caste might not be everyone's cup of tea.

  4. So, who won the armies?
