Hey everyone, Long time no talk. I have been absent from the forums for the last couple years due to life stuff.
I just wanted to post this to let everyone know a little story...
Long story short I lived in Paradise California during the camp fire and my house burnt down. I lost everything that I had ever owned including my very large Miniatures collection. 40k, Infinity, Malifaux, AoS, Bolt Action... you get the picture. Pretty devastating to say the least, but me and my S/O are alive and that's all you can really hope for in a time like that.
I was pretty bummed out about losing everything and trying to decide what I wanted to start working on first. Well Some people reached out to me, put me in contact with GW and GW sent me an army for FREE.
It is pretty dope to see the 40k community strong and I was super impressed by GW's contribution considering how they have been in the past. The future is looking strong. If you guys were ever losing faith in GW then maybe this helps. Heres a picture of what GW sent me, not including some other contributions from players around the US.
A great start to a raiding party that I had previous lost. Meant a lot to have a whole community of people I had never meet reach a hand and help me out. Even to a Dark Eldar player... haha.
Huge shout out to these guys, the community, and of course GW. http://theindependentcharacters.com/blog/
