Those Games Workshop kit boxes make for very satisfying presents.

I got the lad a Repulsor and a box of Terradon riders.

Can't see myself getting anything in return, but the extra time to work on the grey plastic mountain would be nice.

List your presents...and gifts!

Unfortunately nothing. My wife and I had to buy a new house instead so the hobby budget is largely dead for a couple of months. But it works out as I am back next door to my folks, and hope to get back to gaming with my dad, who got me started with Heroquest and Battlemasters, and the new house has a big living room to set up a table.

Probably after Christmas I will get a couple figures from my favorite bitz seller; probably a couple characterful additions to my Stormcast skirmish force (like the leader from Shadespire), and definitely the leader of the Orcs from the Shadespire warband because he will make a great Black Orc boss for my Orc warband (still trying to refuse to say Orruks, lol!).

Still have to work on a bunch of Skaven to make a functional skirmish warband, so just free time would be a great gift (we have two kids under 3).

Merry Christmas all!!

Da hubby bought me the new Forgeworld HH rulebook - mostly cuz I used his visa for it

And my 40k son got the Gangs of Commoragh to expand his DE (though it's not shipped yet sadly) but I also got him the new 40k logbook, which is really cool actually. I may get one as well.

I was soo close to pulling the trigger on Kult of Speed but sadly resisted. I really don't need many of the models.

Nothing physical this year, but a friend asked me to bring my Daemon Princess to our big Christmas game that I haven't used in a good few years. That put a smile on a lot of faces.

Got myself the easy build Primaris Aggressors and a Blight Hauler for myself on Saturday. Nice kits overall, but even the easy build Aggressors are still too expensive ($$$) for what you get.

My sister got me the grey Posca paint pens I've been needing to paint the edges of a bunch of cardboard tokens (I'm looking at you unnecessarily grey Necromunda tokens)

I've got all the other colours I needed, but the grey couldn't be found for love or money in the entirety of NZ.

This is actually the first time I've ever got a present that was actually war gaming useful in 22 years of the hobby.
(My mum used to give me ceramic figures she'd pick up from the salvation army/garage sales every year for Christmas because she couldn't seem to understand the difference between an Ork Warboss in Mega-Armour and a ceramic milkmaid)

Well my Dad outdid himself this year. He got me a Stormeagle from FW!
Even though he was absolutely NO idea about the hobby, like AT ALL, he must have remembered that I actually wanted to order the darn thing for ages yet never did. Talk about a real surprise!

Got the new Dracodile for Warmachine. Was a nice surprise because while it was on my list I didn’t really expect to get it, plus I’d been hearing about shipping delays so I didn’t it would have even been here, but apparently it showed up on Saturday at the last minute.

Love both of those board games. Really wanna try the new airship expansion of Scythe but it sold out here before we grabbed it. Now we’re stuck into Charterstone.
