The stompa is done with lots of love from Santa Cruz, Cali
Santa Cruz Warhammer has become more than just a local blog, but sometimes we just have to give you some local news.
Mike and I are plugging away on the Ork Goff army, and it is coming together beautifully. We have many talented and hardworking painters involved and also some new and young talent: Mike's whole family has been pitching in to get ork boys painted, including some basecoat painting by his daughters at 10 cts a model..generous!
The local guys from the Santa Cruz Warhammer gaming club have taken on models and we had a fun painting party last week, we were also very lucky to have a Stompa donated to the project by our local gaming store Game Alot.
Game Alot has been a fixture in Santa Cruz for longer than I can remember. I played my first game there and bought my first mini from them what must have been a million years ago. Frank and Stephanie are great people and have a genuine love of games. Not only can you find just about any type of gaming need you can think of, but Game Alot is the only place in the city of Santa Cruz to buy GW products. The GW manager for the store is Ross and here he is with the Stompa he built and was able to give to us, check out Ross' blog for more stompas work. If you find your self in the area, make sure to drop in and visit at 835 Front St, ask about Saturday game days and the discount punch cards.

and here's the big guy after I threw on some paint, I made sure to add some Blood Angels and Steel Legion panels.
Thanks again to Game Alot for helping us out with our part of the Heroes of Armageddon Project, stay tuned and get ready to marvel at all the great models from all four armies as they are revealed.
Soon you will be able to get a good look at all the finished models as we will have them showcased on the HoA site, including the leader of all leaders: Ghazghull Thraka himself, painted by word famous painter Mathieu Fontaine.
All this could be your's....donation button on the top right...10 days to go before we stop taking money and announce winners.
