    The Librarium-Online Charity Sale [LOCS] 2011

    Hey guys,

    As some of you might remember we have had two of these in previous years, on 40k and one Fantasy. I have decided to resurrect this project once again, and perhaps if it works this can become a yearly event.

    For those that have not come across this project before, it is quite a simple project. A group of painters are selected to paint up a single miniature from one system (usually 40K or Fantasy) which after a certain date will all be auctioned off on ebay with the proceeds going to a charity decided by the group.

    In previous years I have selected the painters from a group that I believed to be the best painters on the forum. However, I believe that no one should be exempt from this. And thus, this is an open invitation to all members of LO.

    So, what exactly is require of those wishing to take part? Simple. You will be required to paint a single miniature that fits the theme we have decided upon. Once the deadline has been reached I will put up an auction for each of the miniatures up on ebay. The proceeded of these auctions will then be given to the charity.


    To sign up, all you need to do is post in this thread.

    So that aside, the main overall theme I was going for was; 40k. Now, last time we did characters and I think that is a good place to start once more. They usually aren't that expensive and a great looking character is a nice centrepiece for an army.

    That said, I am open to ideas.


    I hope folk sign up and keep to their word, the last two times we raised just about £200. It would be proper awesome if we could raise more than this amount.

    Thanks a lot guys and look forward to it all.



    Kuffy

    While I'm not entirely sure I want to take part in the painting side of things I'm fully prepared to shout encouragement from the sidelines!

    Now I just need some painters to encourage

    Well, I volenteer as follows:
    I have a detached retina, so no depth perception and can't paint for a fig (as has been the case for circa 8 months / my entire gaming career)
    However, I can build things from scratch (quite well if i do say)
    and drybrush / wash / do limited detail

    So,
    I'll do Battlefleet gothic Heavy transports / maybe some blast markers or others
    - I can say this and not bug out as I've done some already (for my army) and got the bits to make some more recently !
    - If someone wants they could paint them, what's the timescale and who do i the finished item send to for posting or is it left with me ?

    (I may have some other projects availiable to repeat too e.g. a Epic / planetary empires Fortress of Redemption )

    This sounds interesting, I'd like to join!
    As far as I understand every participant will paint a 40k character (of his/her choice?). Any deadlines / further theme yet?

    Cheers,
    LS

    Yep, that is the plan. I have not thought much else on deadlines, as for theme I just think a character is fine. Simple and easy. As to the choices, it would be nice to try and get each race with a model but it shall be left to the painter themselves of their choices. Deadline will depend upon when I have some more interest.
