Limited edition CSM codex, Dark Vengeance set

Masterminis has a contest/drawing currently going on for a few prizes, like limited ed Chaos Marine books.  Follow, comment, guess, and also note in your comments how you found out about it (sonsoftaurus at Free Loot and Game Stuff!) for a chance at an additional prize; a Dark Vengeance set.
Here's the rules as of this posting, but be sure to head to Masterminis to read it directly and enter!  Good luck!

RULES - now read this well, or you might mess it up!

1. There are THREE giveaways. The first two giveaways (2xLt. CSM Codex) will be closed and drawn on the day we start the third giveaway, the so-called "GIVEAWHAT?". To keep it exciting, we will NOT tell you when the GIVEAWHAT will start. We might close this giveaway tomorrow or in two weeks. 

2. Only followers of this blog are eligible to win.

3. First giveaway (Ltd. CSM Codex): 
Among all comments and replies to THIS thread we will draw a random winner. ( You can comment on and reply to this thread as often as you want to, up to the day on which we reveal the GIVEAWHAT. 

BUT WAIT, DONT COMMENT YET - READ POINT 4! (Its like all CAPS, doods, do it!)

4. Second giveaway: (Ltd. CSM Codex, "Dolly Book")
In the comments and replies to THIS thread, we ask you to guess what crazy giveaway we have planned for the GIVEAWHAT? It is so crazy that IF you get it right, you will receive the second Ltd. CSM Codex as a prize. If noone has the right answer,  we will simply proceed according to the first giveaway: Everybody here has a chance to win by random draw (

Note: Only comments that are guesses of the GIVEAWHAT or comments clearly replying 1) to other user's guesses of the GIVEAWHAT or 2) comments and replies to the Revolution will be eligible to win. You can leave as many comments and replys as you want to increase your chances of winning - BUT we will disqualify senseless spammers. Be creative :) 

5. Third giveaway (The GIVEAWHAT?)
On the day we reveal the GIVEAWHAT? we close the first and second giveaways and draw the two winners of the Limited Edition CSM Codices. We will announce the winners in the same video in which we reveal the GIVEAWHAT?

EDIT 15.11. 6. No rule yet, messed it up

EDIT 15.11.  Rule 7. Vengeful Friends

Please bring your friends here. In the GIVEAWHAT post (you know where): Write "XYZ brought me here." and both of you are eligible to win the a Dark Vengeance Limited Edition box EACH. 
This rules should be clear now. Happy commenting! :) And good luck!

Download: 40K Objective Markers

Confessions of a 40K addict has cranked out some more freebies, objective counters for keeping track of variable values and mysterious objective results.  Just print, put on something solid and go!

I really like how the VP markers not only show the number, but also have a corresponding number of skulls, making it easier to tell from a distance. 

He's also put up a small terrain piece, a hatch that can be used on its own or in combination with other patterns.

Welcome to Free Loot and Game Stuff!

Hi all!  Welcome to the site.  Over the years I've participated in many contests and giveaways, won some, and have given stuff away myself.  We have aggregation sites for hobby tips, tactics, and rumors, why not one for contests and giveaways?

My personal focus is currently more miniature related, which you can see over at my hobby blog, Sons of Taurus.   But Free Loot and Game Stuff will not be limited to that - role playing stuff, card games, board games - it's all welcome. 


Have a gaming-related giveaway or contest that you want to promote? This may be for you!


- Must not involve any cost to participants, beyond the time and mental capacity to enter. While I engage in and support things like charity raffles, this is not the place for them.

- Keeping with the no cost principle, this includes shipping costs. If you want to limit where you are willing to ship, please make a note of that in the contest.

-Items should be gaming or gaming hobby related. Some examples would be miniatures, game books, legal game book downloads from the creators, dice, hobby supplies like paint, board games, cards, etc. Things that are always free and available like "free forum membership" will be ignored.  This is intended as an all-ages site, so "adult" prizes and/or contest requirements are also not acceptable. 

-Contests may include requirements, just not direct costs. Pictures of a painted model, a short story, whatever are all fine, but entry fees are not. You are responsible for judging entries, choosing winners and redeeming prizes; I take no hand in that and accept no responsibility.

If your giveaway or contest meets these criteria, send me an email through my profile with a link to the contest, what the winner gets, how they get it, and when the deadline is. If it meets the criteria I'll post up a link for you.

If you are not the originator but you see something free or a contest you want to pass on, feel free to contact me about it too!

Disclaimer: I love free stuff as much as the next guy, and plan to enter contests that interest me. This site is a way to help spread the word to allow more people to enter or take advantage of offers, and I'm a people too!  I do not expect any special consideration beyond things publicly available to any entrant, like extra entries for linking to the contest. 

Let the Free Loot and Game Stuff roll!  Good luck and happy looting!
