Project Alchemy: Fancy Winning Original Warhammer Artwork or Unreleased Miniatures?

One of the prizes is the original Summoning Pentagram from the WFB3 rulebook! Illustrated by Tony Ackland!

Jon Boyce and co have been hard at work behind the Oldhammer scenes for quite some time setting up a charity auction. What makes this auction different from the many others out there, is that the prizes include many old school pieces by popular artists Tony Ackland, Ian Miller and John Blanche, including original illustrations from the Warhammer Fantasy Battle Third Edition rulebook. 

The main webpage can be found here with the details published below!

What is Project Alchemy?

The aim of this project is quite simple - to raise money for the charity UNICEF through a shared love of old-school tabletop wargaming. 

Project Alchemy is a virtual raffle of some fantastic and unique prizes - if you fancy winning a piece of original Games Workshop artwork, classic signed rulebooks or unreleased models, then this is the charity project to donate to!
Each £1 pledged through our JustGiving website enables you to qualify for a virtual raffle ticket. If you would like to be entered into the draw for the prizes on offer, you must tick the box that allows Project Alchemy (Jon Boyce) to contact you.

Project Alchemy is being co-ordinated by a team of people from the Oldhammer forums, Oldhammer Facebook group and the Collecting Citadel Miniatures Yahoo group

The charity project is not affiliated with and does not represent any of the companies whose products are being offered as prizes, and no challenge to their legal rights is intended.

This original Ian Miller concept sketch is also one of the prizes.

Project Alchemy will (we hope!) draw donations from around the world. We have selected UNICEF as the charity to support as it meets our key criteria of both being an internationally active charity and of its high external ratings for the effective management and use of its funds; the money gets spent where it should be! UNICEF was also selected simply because it helps kids...and who better to benefit from a charity project centred on toys?!

What is JustGiving?
JustGiving is a widely used online donation platform, specifically created to support charitable fundraising. For details on how JustGiving operates, visit the JustGiving homepage.

The Project Alchemy team have selected JustGiving as the platform for processing donations as it is secure and transparent.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

We are all hoping that this site's many, many readers get involved in this good cause... Either by contributing with their hard earned cash, or spreading the message across the fantasy wargaming scene and beyond.
