    I think I know what matrias is getting his person. (i'm probably wrong)

    Also, the gift I ordered did NOT get delivered to my LGS! If it's not here within the next week I will need to do some emergency planning.

    Finally got all the necessary materials together for my santee. Was getting worried for a minute there about one of the things. Hopefully I can wrap everything up by Christmas, I'm pretty sure I'll have it there by January at the latest, though.

    Well i posted off my gift to my Santee..... The post office did say it will not be there before xmas day as it does have 4023 miles to go ( as the crow flies ) from my post office to the one in its final city :D However if luck is on its side and the emperor allows, it shall arive very close to xmas day.

    :D just hope you like it....

    I want you to know that I calculated the distance between Glasgow (being the only city in Scotland that I could calculate from) and D.C. just to check. Give or take a thousand miles, you're mailing to someone in either the southeast or the midwest.

    I think.

    That was actually fun.

    So I just got confirmation that my order is out for delivery. I don't want to rush the job, but I'll try to get the gift out in time for a proper christmas delivery. Apologies to my santee if it's late.

    I don't have tons of free time as the year comes to a close, so I opted to get this ordered and done while I wasn't dealing with yearly transition things

    This, and I much prefer the idea of my santee getting the gift at random with all the other pre-christmas packages coming in. Makes for an even better surprise.

    Heh, mine will probably be coming in with all the other post-Christmas packages. Fortunately after work Friday my semester will be over and I'll be able to dedicate a full weekend to the creative element of the gift (fortunately for my santee, this does not include painting mini's, as the extent of my abilities in that realm is spraying primer and throwing a solid coat on a base). I'd like to get it out Monday, but that probably means it won't make it till the next Monday with holiday shipping.

    Seems like beating the deadlines significantly also gets the santa more attention for their creative bad-assery.

    LOL, i like the calculating out the distance....... i wish i was going in the package as well so i could have a holiday :p

    I just realised that the address i gave is my 'WORK' so if my santa has sent or is about to i might not get it until next year anyways as my base closes on friday until next year!! At least i can check with the Caretaker to see if it has arrived. :D Im am not too fussed as it will be summit to look forward to when i am forced to go back to work in January :D

    Well, not to be overly self-depreciating, but it's easy to be generous when the only expense is money, and not labor.

    So, I was coming home today after a pretty exhausting day and thought to myself, "It'd be pretty cool if there were presents for me when I get to the mailbox."

    Lo and behold...
    Box.
    Apartments013.jpg?t=1260312886
    This is kind of goofy, but after working all day on one of our green campaigns at work I was amused by the box.
    Apartments014.jpg?t=1260312887
    Ah, shining jewels are within!
    Apartments015.jpg?t=1260312887
    I haven't seen my main monsterpocalypse pal in awhile, so I'm going to wait to open 'er up till my girlfriend and I have time to play/try to sucker her into liking collectibles. Pictures of the contents will have to come later. This gives me a great chance to push her from liking miniatures (she enjoys painting my GW stuff) and loving board games to further heights of geekery.

    Thanks a ton, Santa!

    It came straight from the source, so I'm not sure who it was from. It seems I may have failed to pick it up yesterday, so Wulf possibly? Either way, another big thanks to my santa! Loves me some giant monsters and tiny buildings. Who wants to play?

    So I'm finally getting the chance to sit down and work on my gift, and good lord do I love this model. I have absolutely no reason to own one myself, but I totally want one.

    I forgot how much fun this was. CF, you have finally sucked me back into miniature sculpting!

    Glad you enjoy tiny monsters. Honestly, I would hate to meet the person who did not enjoy such things. Looking at your Board Game Geek thing I saw that those where a wanted item, so here's hoping your new monsters fit thematically with whatever monsters you currently have.

    Yeah. I have a small collection, so theme isn't really a concern. I basically treat it as a board game, since it's pretty much playable as such. Thanks so much!

    Awesome gift, but yes all credit to see317, who was your Santa. I am a bit worried now though, as my santee has apparently had his gift delivered about oh, 48 hours ago as of now. I would hate to have had my gift stolen from my santees domicile entrance, but if it has been, at least I have time to get them another.

    Hmm... i did get a package delivery notice a couple of days ago, but I'm pretty sure it said it was from Amazon.com... If only I didn't have a retarded post office open only from 9-5 on weekdays, I'd be able to pick it up before Saturday and be sure.

    It's also just possible you're Santee is not me, and some people are just slow on the upload. I'm fairly sure the guy I gave the 750 point Tyranid army to for the first exchange still hasn't posted pics of it. :P

    Checked with my LGS, and the gift I ordered through them last week has still not been ordered because apparently ordering Games Workshop merchandise can only be done via some obscure, arcane ritual involving a great number of willing participants who do not mind the presence of goat's blood and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

    If my LGS wasn't a cool place in every regard aside from special orders, I'd be a bit miffed.

    Went to my LGS and they didn't have what I ordered. Luckily, I managed to wheel-and-deal and someone gave me theirs and they'll get mine when it comes in, since mine is time-sensitive.

    I have started assembling said gift. Lets just say it's probably the most complicated thing I've assembled yet.

    Dear Santee,

    Since we both got in on this awesome ritual a little late, you probably know who you are. However, I am happy to say that you will only expect half of what you shall receive! I hope you like it, as I was a little hesitant to deviate from your suggestion, but half the fun of the present is lost without surprise mixed in, so it is sort of a shot in the dark!

    A package should be on its way from thewarstore (hopefully to arrive before Christmas).

    Happy Holidays! :mrgreen:

    To my santee: I had to desecrate a Lego piece making this thing. I hope you're happy.
