NEWS JUST IN Big update from Kev (Via Goblinaid on facebook)
"Hi everybody ,
A massive thanks for all those who are helping and have helped me , i'm feeling really well and happy , eye is a lot better and i aim to be starting to make models in a few weeks time , i can focus again thanks to a prism on glasses but am very rusty and need to practice so will do bits here and there over the next couple of weeks to sharpen up .
I reckon i will need new glasses soon as ive had a wee bit of trouble seeing up close .
When i went for a walk later to go volunteering i was very disorientated and couldnt walk straight but i think its to do with my focus adjusting.
The operation was cancelled because of a toothache and its going to be a while now before they can operate so ive decided to go back to work once i'm signed off , even if my eye is a bit dry, i would rather have my independence back and get back making models .
The first model i'm going to make is a goblin decorator based on myself with eye patch tin of paint , bush , apron and maybe some rolls of wallpaper .I want all the proceeds of the model to raise money for Syrian refugees and hope it will sell better than my usual models .
Its my way of saying a big THANK YOU to everybody who has helped and its my way of showing appreciation for everybodys kindness .
Over the last few months ive kept very busy and completely re decorated the house and painted the exterior plus ive been busy in the garden , its helped me no end with healing and ive nearly finished now and will have plenty of time for working again once i start .
Obviously i need to go and have this horrible operation later on and will be off work again while it heals so i will look like a pirate for a few weeks while it heals .The operation involves taking a sample of flesh from roof of mouth to graft below eye so i have a lower lid again.
It wont be for a while though because i cant book for the op until my teeth are fixed and ive been told to wait six weeks after the dental treatment before contacting the hospital, my dental appointments at the end of the month so its going to be around two months .
Will keep you all posted .
again many thanks .

Fortunately he is out of immediate danger and has now had surgery to rebuild his cheekbones, and ensure his eye is ok.
There's a photo of his injuries under the spoiler
and how he's recovered since them
A group of his friends and colleagues have set up a specific facebook page GOBLINAID to organise fundraising for Kev, and to collect messages of support
A live, dedicated PayPal account and bank account has been sorted to take donations and proceeds from any auctions we run on the Goblinaid eBay account. Donations can be made directly to
For the time being, please note that we can only accept donations and not payments made on deposit against the charity mini set - it's just too much admin for us at this stage.

As somebody who's adored and collected Kev's work forever, and especially since we've got several of his sculpts in our range, I'm going to try and see if we can raise some money for Kev to help with his recovery. Jason Wiebe has already offered to sculpt a goblin which we'll get cast to raise funds, and I'd like to ask anyone with Kev's work in their catalogue if they'd mind having a collection tin on their stands at Salute (Warlords permitting) to raise a few quid more.
Their initial aim is to produce set(s) of 28mm goblins which will only be available as a set, and only for a limited time. 28 sculptors have offered to help (so far) are donating their work for free at what is an especially busy time of year (especially for the UK trade), and Paul Reid of Ral Partha Europe has also generously offered his casting & distribution services to see the project through.
Almost all of the brilliant GoblinAid sculpts. Thanks, so much, to all the talented people who've gone out of their way to create a Gobbo - tops blokes all!

currently active auctions
original masters : Full Reproduction rights (after Feb 2014)!
Q. Im a painter, can I paint something?
A. Yes, feel free. Weve had lots of enquiries about painting/auctioning/organising events et cetera. You really dont need to ask permission; were not in charge, more coordinators if you want to sit in a bath tub of mushy peas for a week, go for it! Just let us know what youre doing so we can promote it.
Q. Ive got X can I send it to you?
A. You can send items to be auctioned/raffled to either Geronimo c/o Fenris Games or me c/o Ainsty Castings
Q. What will happen to the money raised?
A. Having talked it over with Tim and Ian wed like to initially raise enough to replace Kevs stolen computer. Hes eager to get back to work as soon as possible and that is something that will help his aim. If were really successful it might even have a spellchecker ;-)
A couple more updates:
BloodyBeast is planning to do some auctions with the profits going to Kev/Goblinaid so check them out here
Wargames Foundry does not have a current sculptor so was unable to submit a mini for goblinaid, so instead they have re-released a self sculpt of Kev himself, together with 5 random 'snorklings' (little figures Kev sculpted out of left over greenstuff while he worked with them)
This is the Kev self sculpt they are offering which comes with 5 random snorklings, Price £12 + P&P
NOTE: Foundry will contribute the majority of the £10 to Goblinaid/Kev (but they have to deduct VAT to pay the government for any orders from Europe)
With donations and collections at Salute we've raised a little over £600 so far and hope to do a good deal better once the minis are ready for sale. Spare time to get auctions listed on eBay is still eluding me for the moment but they'll start appearing soon and you'll hear about them first here. We're still waiting on (iirc) two sculpts before we can get the whole set off for mastering, but in the meantime anything you can do to help - like buying the Foundry kev set or the Renegade orcs - will go a long way towards making Kev's life a little easier.
Thanks, all - geronimo.
EDIT: I re-edit this post to keep it as up to date as possible, if you need to see something that was here and seems to have vanished have a look through the thread, thanks
