Thanks to the generosity of Dave Livesey, I have started an eBay auction this evening for a beautifully painted and based example of one of our 28mm WWI Honour Guard figures sculpted by Soapy of Gripping Beast.

The auction commenced at 20:07:38 GMT this evening and will run for seven days. The opening bid is £9.99 and the link is HERE

Of course, the close-up, enlarged and sharpened photography doesn't really do justice to the miniature, which is very lovely indeed, and I think Dave has done a wonderfully evocative job with the basing too.

100% of the proceeds will go to Combat Stress, so please support the auction generously. We are getting close to our £20,000 target for the Battlegames Combat Stress Appeal, and individual initiatives like this can help make a real difference.

Even if you don't feel you can bid in the auction, all donations to our Appeal are gratefully received, including by mobile phone – just text MWBG99 £5 (or whatever amount you would like to donate, such as £1, £10, £20 or £50) to 70070. You'll also be able to add Gift Aid at no extra cost if you wish.
