I do not have a lot of spare money, but I do have spare time and a stockpile of models; and I was thinking that there are probably others in a situation similar to mine. So for this year's annual fund drive, I'll be selling a painted model on eBay, and donating the "profit" to the B&C's fund raising.
 
I am inviting you to join me and make it a mini-event!
 
The board's funds aren't required until August 31st, and at this stage the plan is to have the model completed by June 30th for a July 1st eBay Auction start. We'll have a Hall of Honour thread open from July to showcase the models that will be sold.
All of the auctions would share a common title, something like "Fund the B&C : {insert unit type}" allowing for the items to be located easily.
Each item would also have the following blurb in the description:

"The Bolter and Chainsword is the net's premier hobby website for all things Warhammer 40k. Buy this model/these models to help keep the B&C around awhile longer. All profit from the sale of this model will be donated to the Bolter and Chainsword for its maintenance and service costs."
 
As far as actually making  the donation, it will be a straight up honor system. You are volunteering for this and the only enforcer will be yourself. Since the point is to limit out-of-pocket expenses, postage, postage materials, and Paypal/eBay fees/charges should be deducted before determining how much to pass on. This means that the donation passed on to the B&C for a model that sells for $20+$15 P/H would be approximately $15 give or take some change.
 
I will be donating my Art Scale Heresy Era Dark Angel.
 
gallery_48988_6285_81910.png
 
I'm not expecting people to donate big, expensive models (pretty sure there won't be any complaints though), but rather the appeal of the model to come from Frater who's painted it. I know there are a few Fraters whose painted models I'd love to own.
 
To be clear, this is my idea, and NOT an "Official" Bolter and Chainsword event. As such, none of the Bolter and Chainsword Admins or Mods are to be involved if anything goes awry. All of the Buyer / Seller policies and protections that eBay / PayPal has in place need to be enough.
 
Ok, so you're in, now what?

  • Choose your model and have it painted by July 1st to place in the Hall of Honour thread when it opens.
  • July 1st, put your model up for sale. You choose the terms of your Auction, whether it is Auction or Buy It Now. I personally will be doing a $1, 7 day recurring Auction until it sells.
  • Be mindful that the Bolter and Chainsword is an international website, and you should expect to ship internationally, please budget your postage and postage supplies adequately.
  • When your model sells, package it securely. My recommendation is placing the model in a zip-lock bag, wrapping the model several times in bubble wrap and then sending it in either a box or postage tube. I have NEVER received or sent a model and have it break when packaged this way.
  • Most importantly, pass on the profits via Paypal and the following email address: bolterinquisition@gmail.com
You can signify your participation or support by placing this pip in your signature and linking it to this thread:

Feel free to ask and questions you may have.

Cheers,
Jono

Sounds like a plan :tu:

 

Depending on how my own vow goes, I have a plan for a second model to put up.

If you wouldn't mind adding a donation link at the top (paypal or w/e), it's not a lot to ask everyone to kick in a few bucks.

To support the B&C via donations directly? That's already being done (if you are using the mobile skin, you will have to switch to the full version of the site to see it).

This is in addition to that effort in another creative way for those that may have more time and models that could be painted to sell for donation, instead of just free money in their pockets...

Nice idea.

I've bashed something together from spares, a Blood Angels lieutenant. Clearing out mini-marine parts.

Spoiler


When I get it painted I'll stick it on eBay and hopefully get more than the sum of the bitz.

Model based and put onto eBay (link in sig for those interested).

 

If the model gets sold for a decent price, I'll consider basing the 6 Tactical Marines I painted in the same colour scheme and putting them up for auction, too. :tu:

Well, I've been outbid! So if you put the tacticals up I'll try for those instead!

That's a really cool idea.

I would do a model if I were a skilled enough painter for anyone to want to buy my stuff.

Although Dos and I have painted ours, there's plenty of room, and demand, for unpainted models. Maybe you have an idea for a cool kit-bash or conversion, maybe you've already built it. If you'd like to jump in with an unpainted model, the B&C would still really appreciate the donation :tu:

I really don't have anything to spare at the moment, but I'll keep it in mind if I come up with a cool idea.

I generally work organically. If I come up with something it's usually built, painted, and in my army quickly.

I did it, Blood Angels lieutenant built, painted, and listed on eBay UK. Shouldn't be hard to find if you're interested.

So yeah, intrigued to see where it leads.


UPDATE: Sold for £10.50, which isn't bad. Glad my painting added some value.
