Fellow Dakka-ites, a wargamer is in need of your help!
A member of one of my online gaming groups recently had his hobby life (and actual life, for that matter) go up in smoke due to a flat fire, taking with it all of his gaming collection and painted miniatures. He managed to escape the fire with only minor injuries, but his Gamer`s Vault - lifetime collection of miniatures, games, books, cards, comics was completely incinerated. Amongst other things, he lost his top-quality painted Thousand Sons WH40K
army, Warzone Dark Legion and Cybertronic warbands, 3000+ Kult CCG
cards, full Warhammer: Invasion LCG card set, 3 boxes of Space Hulk Board game, all Blackstone Fortress expansions, full Dragon`s Den Trihex Citadel 3d printed BF
terrain, lots of Kill Team and Necromunda stuff, great Lobo comicbooks collection, Forbidden Stars, Chaos in the Old World any much, much more.
A mate of his is running a small campaign to provide temporary relief funds - partly in the hope that he'll eventually be able to rebuild a bit of his collection, and more generally just to help him get through the next few months whilst his insurance gets sorted. It's a pretty crappy thing to happen to anyone, but with Covid-19 it's about the worst time this could happen.
The campaign is runs out tomorrow and has already raised $500. If anyone could chip in, or just share a link to the Paypal campaign on their social media, that'd be fantastic!
