Hello All -

Today we are doing something to help out a community member and do a little fund raising for the board as well.

Many of you (if you have been around long enough) should know of Aerion the Faithful and the wonderful artwork he has done for his Primarch Project.

You've probably seen a lot of his art as Avatars here on the B&C, on Deviant Art and other websites (even other games).

What you probably didn't know (unless you were a moderator or one of three lucky people to win one) is that Aerion also did a fully playable (but 40k themed) poker card deck for us. This was as a "thank you" to the moderators from the Admins. The deck featured the suites of a standard Imperial Tarot (Swords, Eagles, Skulls and Stars)

The cards themselves featured Moderators in their 40k form or as Characters they have been on the B&C in Arena of Death or other B&C events:

And also has custom tuck box art and joker cards:

Aerion was recently working on a new deck of cards for us with the current crop of moderators. Unfortunately, an untimely move and his young nephew passing from a heart condition have forced Aerion into a bit of bind. Having fallen behind not only on our project but others he has been somewhat stressed for time to catch up on everything and still keep his family fed (as the art is his income).

So we decided to help out someone who has done so much for this community.

What does this mean for you?

After talking with Aerion, we have decided to offer up the 2009 Card deck for sale. A portion of the proceeds will go to the B&C and the other will go to Aerion to help him right the ship so to speak.

The deck has 52 (FIFTY TWO!!) cards all with unique art, plus 2 Joker Cards and the tuck box. That is 54 pieces or original work by Aerion.

Our goal right now is to sell 120 decks of the cards (that is the price break point the card making facility has given us). The mods alone met that goal back in 2009 so I think it is safe to say that this awesome community can reach that.

The decks are not cheap but considering what you are getting we think folks will find the cost reasonable.

Each deck of cards will be: $30 US

This covers the cost of production, postage to the person purchasing and some for Aerion and the B&C.

What do we need from you:

You need to PM me (Kurgan the Lurker) with the following details:
Your real name! (Important!)
The # of Decks you want (1, 2, 10, 100...whatever)
Your mailing address
An email that we can send you a paypal invoice to (you don't have to be signed up to Paypal for this!!) (If you'd prefer something other than paypal we can make arrangements)

Alternatively, if you aren't a member of the B&C yet you can either PM at the Official B&C Facebook page OR email me at bolterinquisition@gmail.com

The plan right now is to collect funds until May 31st. This would give the average joe 4 paychecks to get funds together. The order for decks will be placed June 1 and right now production time is 2-3 weeks. This means the week after July 4 we (I) would start sending decks out to those that ordered them.

If you have question please ask here, in PM or email. I'll do my best to answer. Please be aware that my mother is terminally ill and I will do my best to respond promptly depending on her current health situation.
