Welcome to your early December update regarding the Lost Hemisphere Fundraiser at CaptainCon 2020! Will you be in Rhode Island from February 7th through 9th? Will you be enjoying good times playing Warmachine, Guild Ball, 40K, a dizzying variety of board games,and otherwise living your best geek life? Will you be taking a chance and supporting our efforts to raise funds for Rosie’s Place? Prize support is being locked in, and someone has to win all this stuff!
KR Multicase, long time favourite cases of the Lost, will be sending a selection of their fine cases, including:
- Backpack43 (BP43 including trays)
- Standard Aluminium (A/DL1 including trays)
- Standard Card Case (KRM including trays)
- 2x Half Card Case (KRH including trays)
Our friends at Modiphius are stepping up to the plate and welcoming you to the tabletop incarnation of one of the most successful video game franchises in the world, with:
- Fallout: Wasteland Warfare 2-player starter
- Fallout Wasteland Warfare RPG expansion
And while we may not yet have specifics as to what we’ll find on the prize table, we also have support commitments from Dust USA, Ninja Division, Dragon Forge Design and Tectonic Craft Studios. Yeah, they’re being teases and haven’t yet told me exactly whatthey’re sending, but I’m excited to have them all on board!
Of course, it doesn’t end there. The Fundraiser has been so successful in previous years not only because of sponsors like the above, but also because of the contributions of members of our broader community.

From the original announcement:
Where do you come in?
You can help. Every year we fill the prize table with stuff from the Lost Hemisphere prize pool and also from various gaming industry sponsors, but we also turn to you, our readers, and ask if you have something you’d like to donate. In the past we’ve had fully painted armies donated by the community, new in box product that was otherwise collecting dust, even one-of-a-kind paintings. With your help, the prize table can be amazing.
So you can do one of two things (or, preferably, both):
- Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me how pretty I am… also, let me know if you or your gaming community can help us out with the prize table. New In Box or fully painted models only please. This is open to any and all game lines. If you think you can help us raise funds for a worthy cause, get in touch.
- Actually attend CaptainCon, and bring your generous heart with you. We want an awesome prize table, yes, but we also need people there to buy raffle tickets. This is an opportunity for you to directly benefit women in need, and with any luck to walk away from the prize table with something particularly shiny at the same time.
I look forward to hearing from you, and to seeing as many of you as possible at CaptainCon.
