What is a Thrall Harvest?
A Thrall Harvest is an event using a Warmachine or Hordes tournament in order to raise canned goods for a local food pantry. During the winter holiday season, food pantries supplies tend to run low on food while the demand increases. This is a wonderful opportunity for miniature gamers to give back to community while bashing some metal in the process.
A Thrall Harvest uses something called Foodmachine style. This format allows players to make canned good donations in mid-game to change in-game effects. An example is donating a canned good to re-roll a die or to add an extra focus to your warcaster during the maintainence phase. This format adds a twist to an already fantastic game. It helps motivate people to bring in more cans, which to be honest, is sort of the whole point. I mean, who doesn’t want a 11 focus Harbinger?

Good luck, and remember:
Donate like you got a pair!
