We talk so much about the big armies for the 2018 Summer Raffles that we sometimes do not get a good look at the limited ticket items like the single miniature Nathaniel Garro. Only 500 tickets are available for this one, making it one of those miniatures that you know you have the most excellent opportunity to play your odds. Tickets are $2 to get in on this, and proceeds go to charity.
Don't Miss Out on this one.
2018 MODEL: 30K “NATHANIEL GARRO,” Hand of the Sigillite
Donated and Painted by: Sean McAfee of BrushforHire
$2 Tickets; Only 500 will be sold
On July 1, 2018: Purchase tickets here
Proceeds will benefit Doctors Without Borders
The foremost of the Knights-Errant, Nathaniel Garro was once a Battle-Captain of the Legiones Astartes Death Guard. Though he served his Primarch with honour and dedication, he was condemned as unworthy and, along with countless thousands of Legionaries who could not be counted on to tread the path of the Traitor, was betrayed at Isstvan III.
Surviving to bring word of the treachery to Terra, Garro renounced his oaths to the Death Guard and pledged his life and loyalty to Malcador the Sigillite, swearing to undertake any mission, no matter how perilous, in the ultimate defense of humanity.
This elite miniature would look great on display, and can also be used in The Horus Heresy (from Forgeworld/Games Workshop). Rules can be found in Book 6 – Retribution – and on his page on the Forgeworld website.
We extend our appreciation to Sean McAfee, who is returning for his second year as part of the NOCF Artists’ Consortium.
