This morning we have a guest article from the Nova Open Charitable Foundation on some completely incredible auction items that are now open. There is an incredible amount of skill put into these models, from a Corvus Belli studio painted miniature to masterpieces by Roman Lappat of Massive Voodoo. These are limited to 200 tickets each, and you don't have to be present to win. 

Just when you thought there was only 40k auctions........

The NOVA Open Charitable Foundation has another "First!"

Corvus Belli & Massive Voodoo 

"Maverick with Boarding Shotgun" - studio painted Corvus Belli miniature! "Maverick" is an exclusive model of the recently released USAriadna Army Pack (July 2015) and it will never be sold separately. It is a rare honor to have a parent company donate an actual studio painted miniature, and the NOCF is grateful for this first-ever opportunity!

"Forever Young" - donated by Roman Lappat (Massive Voodoo
Roman describes his work on this model from his personal collection: "This is my interpretation of Fer Miniatures Lucy, the Vampire bride bust from the Gothic Horror series. I really enjoyed the size of the bust. 1/12 is so enjoyable to paint. I did not want her to be a young bride. I rather see her as on old vampire lady, living through all the ages, sleeping for centuries, just to awake and see how the world changes. A little drink of fresh blood here and there, but all in all a little melancholic vampire lady who is not sure if staying forever young is really the perfect solution. What if she gets bored by this neverending story?" 

"Zeta, the Barbarian Babe" - donated by Roman Lappat (Massive Voodoo

Roman praised Kevin James White from Hasslefree Miniaturesfor "sculpting that booty!" (and who can blame him), but the piece is raising funds for Breast Cancer Research Foundation - and a b/c survivor had this take on it:

"Zeta is a warrior princess. I can relate to the fierce nature of this woman as she will undoubtedly wage battle against any threat. She has nothing to hide. A force of nature, she will take on evil and she will prevail." 

Only 200 tickets will be sold for each model. Online sales will close on September 2, 2015, but continue on site at the NOVA Open Tabletop Wargaming Convention in Washington, D.C. (September 3-6, 2015).  Proceeds will support BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION & the FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION.

Need not be present to win: The NOCF will ship anywhere in the world with a deliverable address. With only 200 tickets being sold, multiple tickets will increase your odds of winning greatly! The drawings will take place at Final Ceremony of NOVA Open on Sunday evening, 9/6/15.
