Title: Merry Christmas you Lugs

A very Merry Christmas you guys.
Anyone get anything juicy?

I snagged a Iawata HL-CH this is a top end airbrush that can paint literal hairlines.
And I bought myself the Renegade Crome as a present to myself.
I used to think my cheapo china airbrush was great,you truly get what you pay for.
I also got a new pair of kicks and some clothes.

FW is shipping my other present to myself on the 3rd ;)

Merry Xmas guys, ho ho ho !

For myself, just a lump of coal.. :D

You will have to post how you get on with that airbrush mate!

Merry Christmas to one and all

Forge world goodies received legion mk2 assault and tactical and flying transport for them in the shape of a storm eagle hmmm
Think an air brush needs purchasing in the new year

Merry Christmas, and don't fill up on all the Mince Pies. Especially the alcoholic ones.

Gift vouchers/cards for me, and a bank cheque.
But one was a GW voucher.

Carralak - December 25, 2012 04:34 PM (GMT)
Merry Christmas!

no GW stuff for me. oh no. i got a bathrobe...

IngoPech - December 25, 2012 04:55 PM (GMT)
Happy Christmas lads :D

Amongst my swag was 'The Horus heresy: Betrayal' A most sumptuous tome I must say!!

Best wishes ;)

Adenn - December 25, 2012 05:00 PM (GMT)
Merry saturnalia!

Got tank girl, vodka, a judge dredd mug, alien chopsticks and a box full of old, old imperial guard vehicle upgrades :P plus other bits and pieces.

No heresy goodness, i'm afraid!

Edit : Oh, and a fine, fine aussie friend of mine got me an amazon gift card, methinks it's time to treat myself to Realm of Chaos : Slaves to Darkness at long last :P

Merry Christmas Everyone....

I hope everyone had a good day & haul.

I'll give you an update on how I fared when I get home in just over a week.

I do know that a late November FW I put in has arrived....
Which should have lots of goodies, for me....
Pics of them being built & painted will be added to my blog as I get some of the stuff ready for a tourney I need them for.

Plus I did put a Lightsaber on lay-by before I left, so that is ready for me to collect from my LFGS when I get home... although I'm not too sure what the wife is going to have to say about it..... :unsure:

Plus I invested in one of the Spikey Bits "Boxes of stuff" & a "bag of bits" yesterday.
Tip for young players: While bored at work on Christmas, it is always wise to not have your credit card on you..... :rolleyes:

Hope everyone's had a fun and safe day and evening. :) GW-wise, I've got some Eldar corsair bits and Angel Exterminatus. Also the copy of HH:Betrayal I'd ordered myself arrived in time for my visit.

Adenn, you'll enjoy the Realm of Chaos books if you manage to find them. You might try eBay for The Lost And The Damned if you can't spot a used copy on Amazon. I really like the artwork in those books.

Mortarion - December 25, 2012 09:17 PM (GMT)
Merry Christmas all!

No shinies for me but I did get a airbrush so maybe I'll finally get my around to painting my warhound

Adenn - December 25, 2012 10:48 PM (GMT)
Yeah, i've read a few pages of slaves to darkness before and i loved it. i have a bunch of other older sourcebooks, but never stumbled across the realm of chaos ones, so yeah. be nice, since i've got big love for slaanesh :D

Lost and the Damned seems to be a sod to find these days, did find one on ebay a while ago, but it went for about a hundred squid. Still, slaves to darkness is the one i'm really fussed about, and 26 with a 20 gift card will do for me ;)

Merry Christmas everyone!

Pacific - December 26, 2012 10:20 AM (GMT)
Adenn, you will not regret getting that book those two are excellent! And I'm intrigued about the Alien chopsticks? :)

This year and had the usual pile of books (mostly history stuff), pretty limited hobby-wise but I did get a bunch of the GoT range from Antenociti's workshop (future special-forces police for use with Infinity!) and a copy of Dreadball.

Yvraith - I'm sure you can come up with some credible reason why you would need a Light Sabre for your job? Let's have a think.. :D

Adenn - December 26, 2012 09:20 PM (GMT)
Yeah, i'm looking forward to it :P and the chopsticks were these

Got the drone and the facehugger ones, have to get chestburster ones still :D

Did like the look of dreadball, just to convert an astartes space sharks team ;)

There are always reasons to own a lightsaber!

What make, yvraith?

Yvraith - December 27, 2012 12:04 AM (GMT)
To be honest as much as I wish I had a fully functional Lightsaber here, I think my life expectancy would drop significantly once word got out..
It would be the most desired weapon in the Southern Highlands of PNG, if not the whole country....

Plus knowing me, I'd end up lopping off one of my own legs "Playing" with it. :lol:

Adenn, not too sure.... I know it was the only one in the store, so I grabbed it. (I'll give you all the details in just over a week.) ;)

Pretty sure it's dark side.... It has a detachable blade, so you can just run about with the hilt it you want... which is pretty cool.

Now I just have to hope that my Wife was clever & remembered to get me the Book of the Jedi, to go with my Book of the Sith, for Christmas..

Just adding to the well-wishing with this:

Happy New Year blokes and blokettes of TGC! I know it's not right now for 2/3 of the world, and for the other 1/3 I'm already late, but those are petty details!

I personally look forward to a much less complicated year than the last, and one with a TGC event or two involved for good measure :P I hope everyone yet to celebrate does so with style, and for everyone celebrating already, be most excellent to each other and party on, dudes!!!


Markus Krell - December 31, 2012 07:54 PM (GMT)
Happy New Year!!!! Here's to a great 2013.

Gagoc TheAncient - December 31, 2012 08:06 PM (GMT)
Happy New Year!
And don't get too drunk.

Markus Krell - December 31, 2012 08:17 PM (GMT)
Gagoc: There's no such thing as "getting too drunk"; you always drink just enough!! :D

Gagoc TheAncient - December 31, 2012 09:18 PM (GMT)
Lets see how you feel about that when you're hungover tomorrow Markus. ;)

Markus Krell - December 31, 2012 09:24 PM (GMT)
Who needs to wait 'til tomorrow!! B)

Adenn - January 1, 2013 03:34 AM (GMT)
Merry new year peeps.

Get too drunk, you don't get any good stories otherwise ;)

BigWill - January 1, 2013 03:57 AM (GMT)
Merry New Year

Pacific - January 1, 2013 09:23 AM (GMT)
Happy new year guys! May 2013 bring you much hobby-related goodness! :)
