Im sure not all of you got the newsletter sent out so Ill go over the relevant parts here.
This months drawing is going to have to work a little bit different due to the very high number of people using thier real names and not alias's. What Im going to do is daw the winners at noon like I have with the past 2 give aways. I put each name down in a bowl and (which has taken forever to write all 900+ names) and then pick the 15 winners at random. I will then contat all 15 people via email/messaging here (some have emails listed, others of you dont so I have to send a "friend message" from here). I will then list the winners themselves here on the blog as the replies come in. Ill list first name and last intial as well as the prize that each winner wants/gets. Anyone that doesn't reply back in a timely manner will stay in the drawing for next month and a new winner will be selected to replace them. I'm also asking that people be ready to post a priority list of the items they want starting from the most wanted down to the least wanted. If there is something you don't like, feel free to pay it forward either back into the give away for another winner a chance or give it to your friend(s) that may need it and can make use of it.
For the people that dont win this month, fear not! A new give away has already started and prizes for it are already being donated. So far another webstore has offered a 100 dollar gift certificate, 2 past golden demon winners have offerd to paint a squad of the winners choices and the models will be supplied by my local Hobbytown USA. (Thanks Jeff!) Another cool prize being offered up is one of the older mega paint sets. Its never been opened as the follower that bought it said he got it off ebay thinking it as the new style paint pots but its the older screw lids. I know some people hate those lids but it does have alot of colors that GW no longer makes.
The coolest prize for the april give away so far is some of the new Orcs and Goblins that are about to be released. The webstore offering them up has given me the choice to give it all to a single winner or break it up into smaller prizes for 3-4 people, each getting a box. Ill see how it goes in the next few days as details are fleshed out.
Comments on it and the rest of the blog are ALWAYS welcome.
The Pay It Forward idea has been spreading as well. So lets keep it going full force and give back as much as we all can to the community at large. Ive also had alot of questions on if people that donate can pick the winner. The answer is yes but must be done with a auto number generating program to insure that everyone has a fair chance. Anyone donating has the option to ship themselves to the winner as well as pick it. This month a number of stores are offering winners choice so they themselves will be shipping to the winners.
So to sum up, spread the word people. It will only make next months give away even better. And with some items that will BLOW YOU AWAY! Yes, they are that awesome. I wish everyone the best luck in winning and for those that don't win this month, your automatically entered into next months which has some great prizes already coming together.
