Alien War is a game of ground combat for 28mm (1/56 scale) models set in the year 2260. The rules have been designed to give you an authentic feel for the future battlefield.

You can get the free Beta-rules here!

I am on the Radio!

Hello everybody,
I already told you that I did an interview with 11th Company (who by the way are also the sponsors of this weeks give-away). This is included in their newest episode number 122!

So if you want to listen to my incoherent babble and my terrible, terrible german accent, go over to 11th Company and download the episode. The rest of it actually very good :)

You want a new Chaos Space Marine army, but you don't want to trust in your luck?

Well, Jeff from Pirate Viking Painting has the answer!

Jeff is selling his awesome Nurgle Iron Warriors army, and if you buy this amazing, unique and very well painted 1670 point army, he will contribute 100 $ back to the Black Crusade in your name! That means 100 additional lots for you in every drawing from the point you bought this army! Perfect win-win :)

Second Give-Away and First WIP

the first one to actually shows us some WIPs of his contributions is Simon from Master of the Forge!

you are crazy!

We are two days into this campaign and today we got literally flooded with offers of support, from hobby clubs and Golden Demon winners to the humble gamer who just wants to help!

Maybe there is a connection to the Black Crusade announcement hitting some major news sites and popular blogs...

Actually, we are a little bit overwhelmed by this response and it might take us a day or two to sort things out (we do have regular jobs, too ;) ). We will answer everybody as fast as possible, but don't be upset if we just say that we need a little more time. Nevertheless, we won't turn down anybody because this is a community-driven effort and the more help we get, the better the army will be and more people will decide that it is worth to contribute some money for the JVMF.

It might take a couple of days to include the new sponsors and contributors to the roll of honor.

A big "Thank you!" to everybody who decided to be an active part of this. We wouldn't be able to do this on our own.

And please keep those offers of support coming!
Just email us at blackcrusade2012@gmail.com

And so it begins...

2010 – The Stormwarden Project
2011 – Heroes of Armageddon

2012 – The Black Crusade

Hello everybody and welcome to the Black Crusade 2012!

Over the next weeks, we will build and paint a massive Warhammer 40K Chaos Space Marine army just to give it away in a big raffle!

This year we decided that all contributions will benefit the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund, a charity that provides financial assistance to members of the public who are part of the gaming community and who have suffered personal hardship.

How does it work? Every dollar you contribute gives you a chance to be the lucky new army winner at the end of this drive. 10 dollars contribution =10 chances to win. 100 dollars = 100 chances... you get the idea.

In short: the more you contribute, the better your chances. More importantly, the more you contribute, the more you help to make the world a better place.

At the end of the drive, on August 10th, we will choose and announce the winner.

And of course we will have additional give-aways of all kind of gaming related goodies for you! The winners of those prizes will be drwan form everybody who donated tot hat point, so get your lots in early!

We will start to accept contributions on Monday, June 11th.

You want to do more? 
Well, the more support we get, the better our army will be and the more money we can collect!
Beside contributing there are some other easy ways to support the Black Crusade:

- Spread the word!
Just talk about us. That's the most important part at all. The more people know about the Black Crusade, the more success it will have. Tell all your friends, talk about the Black Crusade on you favorite forum or post it on your blog! 

- Become a sponsor!
We are still looking for donations for the army and for the weekly give-aways. No matter f you are a fellow hobbyist or a store owner, please just contact us under blackcrusade2012@gmail.com!

- Contribute to the army! 
For the next couple of weeks we will consider offers to actively help us building the army. Everything from a single character to a Warlord Titan is welcome! Again,the bigger the army, the more success the Black Crusade will have. Golden Demon winners preferred :)

Again, just contact us under the email address above. to help us and feel free to ask any further questions.

Thank you for considering
