Fifty six countries have had citizens affected by this tragic event, and many
governments, businesses and individuals are making heartfelt donations to the victims in hope of easing their suffering and
speeding along the recovery process. Whether these donations are monetary, material or hands on, the response world wide has
been overwhelming but sadly, more is needed.
With this in mind, a group of like minded individuals from the Cool Mini Or
Not (here after referred to as CMON) community of miniature artists, sculptors and painters have banded together in an effort
to raise additional monies for the victims, many of which who have already donated generously to the relief effort.
Miniature painting is a highly artistic and expressive art that has developed
from miniature war games played throughout the world that deals primarily with engagement and tactics. From this game the
art of miniature painting has taken leaps and bounds into the artistic realm and its entertainment and popularity has grown
in recent years with world wide conventions.
To that end, ‘Paint Aid’ was established to build, modify and paint
a complete army from the popular game company Games Workshop for their fantasy battle line, Warhammer. This game enjoys great
popularity and the ever growing convention, Games Day, has expanded yearly the world over with games and painting competitions.
The competition has grown more fierce as the years have progressed and miniature painting has surged into new realms and now
many vie for the coveted Golden Daemon and Slayer Sword awards which only the top artists are awarded. Several winners of
this prestigious award have joined the ‘CMON Paint Aid’ to offer up their time and talents.
When the army is painted in its entirety and assembled in one location, it
will be auctioned on Ebay through the Mission Fish Nonprofit Organization and one hundred percent of the proceeds will be
donated to the Red Cross.
On behalf of the CMON Paint Aid, please join us as our thoughts and our efforts are directed to helping the victims
of this devastating disaster.
