Default What Did You Get For Christmas?

Hey everyone.

Very simple topic this one; basically, what did you get for Christmas?

1. Your Main Gift - Everyone gets one big/main gift, so what was yours?

2. Your GW Presents - What presents did you get from GW, models, paints etc?

As I started the thread, I'll go first.

1. My big present was a fancy (expensive) new watch. Thank you Santa!!!

2. I didn't get any because I have far too much stuff as it is.

So everyone ... what did you get for Christmas?

Well I come from a big family, where it just wouldn't be viable for everyone to everyone else a gift as it would get expensive very quickly so we do a secret santa where you draw a name from a hat and that's the person you buy for. So with a $50 dollar benchmark, I drew my brother Andrew from the hat and got him Meatloaf's Bat Out of Hell Albums, part 1,2 and 3, and Queen's It's a Kind of Magic. And whoever drew me out of the hat got me Kamul the Easterling, the Betrayer, the Dark Marshal and the Knight of Umbar miniatures for War of the Ring. I'm guessing Andrew either pulled me out of the hat or helped whoever did, as he's started a Rohan army for War of the Ring, and knows that I'm planning on collecting a Fallen Realms' army so we can play together.

Main gift: MEGA DREAD BABY!!!

Other GW gifts: 2 Trukks.


If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

Main gift= burned fingers while cooking dinner
No GW stuff, I'm getting that myself after Christmas but on the up side I did get a very nice bottle of sherry cask whisky, which I am enjoying while I wonder if I'll ever be able to move again.

Main gift: A bottle of Glenfiddich 30 year old single malt scotch whiskey. I was floored as I have never has such a nice gift bestowed upon me. I don't know if I should lock it in the safe or actually open it and enjoy it. Last I checked it was over $300 (USD) a bottle! I love my brother in law!

GW gift: I got a box of killa cans (I don't play orks, my son does, so is this really for me?) with a requirement when it comes to painting them. I have to do one up as a pepsi can, another as a coca cola can and the third as a campbells soup can. Should be interesting...
