Just got this post on our club website, from Mark Ternent, our immediate past president:
Help from all gamers and modelers please - stolen gear.
My neighbour's grandson was staying and had his entire Warhammer (fantasy and 40k) collection he has been working on since he was a kid, stolen from his car on Sunday night when the storm came through. Also his Xbox, PC, Playstation, Nintendo games and machines, comics, etc.
These may be passed on locally, so if you have any ideas, post here, call me on 04 297 1040 or txt 029 904 2600, or call the Police.
Please help if you can. Douglas, as a gaming community we hope that you get your models back.
(This theft took place in Paraparaumu. Clearly the thieves knew what they were taking. It is likely that these models may surface on eBay or Trademe. We appeal to our gaming community to help stop this thief. Even if it won't bring back our fellow gamer's models, we can stop him from moving them!)
