The Last Chancer Who Survived

Norristown, PA

Nothing for me.. but I gave my nephews a BB-9E RC driod and some Xbox Live cards. Then I found out one of my nephews just got into MTG, I would have gotten him some cards if I knew. Will next year if he's still into it.

Got a friend of mine a Bonesinger when they were on M2O, which he seemed happy with.

I got my brother a Death Guard Icon Bearer. I wanted to get him Typhus or the Rotbone or something else, but none of them were in stock when I did my Christmas shopping.

Didn't get much in the way of gaming presents I always ask for books because I go through them at a crazy rate however my dad did ask for a list of minis that I was interested in and he rather kindly bought me some Victorian Sci-Fi minis from Ironclad games including their rather awesome Martian Tripod.

A Fulla, from Schiit. It's a DAC that does a very nice job of improving the sound from my laptop so that I might better enjoy music while painting and scratch-building. So, for me, it is a gaming aid.

And it does a very nice job indeed, through headphones or through an amp into speakers. I predict an increase in both quality and quantity of my hobby this coming year.

There isn't much difference, really, except that the ceramic milkmaid might actually hurt something.

I didn't get all that much gaming stuff this year, but managed to pick up a decent haul from Knights of Dice off my dad. This is all going towards my first gaming board, a 3x3 for the Batman Miniatures Game and DC Universe Miniatures Game. Kind of got bitten by the terrain bug now though, because I want to keep going now and buy up more stuff (but don't have much space to fit it which is the issue)

I didn't do badly - got a new airbrush (H&S Ultra 2 in 1) from my parents, and an 8th ed rulebook from my brother. Got a few other things that I mostly wish were boxes of Dark Eldar minis instead (£16 coffee mug, um, thanks...), but can't complain...

Fixture of Dakka

Hobby wise just cash but that was quickly converted to squad of 20 mark II assault marines and mk iib land raider for blood angels, bunch of weapons and loads of shoulder pads for blood angels and sons of horus, HH rulebook and magnets.

Assault marines give nice variety for blood angels and that land raider with it's lascannons gives much needed AT firepower to face warhound titan. Plus ability to transport terminators.

Chaplain with Hate to Spare


Well, my wife told me to buy some stuff for her to wrap for me, so I got a bunch of WoK and other items from the CMON sale, but since most of it didn't arrive in time I ended up wrapping some old Dreamforge stuff from my pile of shame. I also got to buy some Star Wars models and paint for my son to assemble with me. The rest of my family pointedly avoided giving me anything hobby related. They mostly gave me books, mostly.

Joke's on them, though, since I plan to read Yamada Monogatari: Demon Hunter to hype myself up for Rising Sun.

Ultramarine Chaplain with Hate to Spare

My folks gave both The Boy and myself cash to spend at the FLGS. I used mine to buy a new Wave Serpent and pick up the Bonesinger I had ordered from the MtO sale a bit back. At the Secret Santa exchange at work, I got these (with the beer)

Best. Coworker. Ever.

The Boy made out like a hobby bandit. For his Salamander army I got him a box of bikes (with 2 meltaguns and a c-melta from my bits box to gear them with), an easy built aggressors box, and the last of the Mk. IV marines from the BaC box I purchased and had been slowly selling him parts from as he earned money. He used the money from my parents to get a box of devastators and cover part of a stormraven (that he had been saving up for)

My brother got me a copy of Nexus Ops, an older Avalon Hill/WotC board game. While OOP, he found a sealed copy on e-bay for a reasonable price. While a gift for me, The Boy really enjoyed playing it in the past when we were down visiting. It’s a quick playing 4x game, with some good balancing mechanics to keep play competitive for the length of the game, rather the the guy in the lead continuing to steamroll to victory.

Don't do much Christmas-ing around here - mostly for the nieces and nephews, but my buddy and I did a gift swap (I ordered him some custom made Dark Angels dice, and he got me a box of Wraithguard). I did get an Amazon gift card as my one gift, but I don't think it'll end up in gaming stuff.

Nothing for me (must have been naughty).

However I did scrounge several empty ribbon roles that will make great terrain.
