Justin “misterjustin” McCoy of secretweaponminiatures.com (SWM) supports the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation (NOCF) in more ways than we can list.  He signed on as one of the premiere artists contributing his skills to the NOCF Macragge Project.  He provides $25 SWM gift certificates in the weekly drawings for raffle participants.  And it didn’t take him long to team up with Thomas Wynn and Dave Taylor (who spearheads the Project for NOCF) to turn an idea into reality by creating unique and amazing bases for The Battle of Macragge.

Six years ago, Thomas – inspired by the base on Marneus Calgar – designed and laser cut bases for Dave who was working on his own Ultramarine project. Leap forward to the NOCF Macragge Project currently under way and we find Justin creating and painting Marneus Calgar for the Ultramarine Army. Similarly inspired, Justin spoke with Dave about designing bases exclusive to the NOCF Macragge Project and, as quickly as all that, OMEGA BASES! They shipped to the Macragge Artists for both armies today.

Snow Bundle SWMAnd that’s not all! Secret Weapon Miniatures’ Snow Bundle is being provided to each artist – and Dave is creating the step-by-step recipe to ensure all bases remain unique to Macragge.



He’s not done yet! Justin announced that SWM has created a limited edition run of these bases, and 50% of every Omega Base sale will be donated to the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation!
