    Ooh, right, that reminds me, I'm going to be bouncing around the DC/MD/VA area house and dog sitting for family over the holidays. So Santa, if you haven't sent out my present yet, pop me an IM when you're ready to mail so I can tell you if I'll be home, or if it'll need redirecting.

    I'm glad they ported this forum over.

    I have primed all of the minis. I didn't know how awesome the flying shredders looked until now. I might actually start playing Hordes in addition to DnD.

    Post pics when your done! Honestly, I blame you if I end up getting a Hordes army. Looking through their website just made me want to buy an army on the spot. If I hadn't just committed myself to Arcane Legions, I probably would have :P

    @Wicked: Both your new chaplain and your servitor ping highly on the awesome scale. Of course, they will inevitable be crushed beneath the boots of my chaos legions some day, but until then, pretty damn awesome.

    Where you feeding your hedgehog toothpaste?

    Or is all the foam just hedgehog spit?
    wikipedia wrote:
    Hedgehogs occasionally perform a ritual called anointing. When the animal comes across a new scent, it will lick and bite the source and then form a scented froth in its mouth and paste it on its spines with its tongue. It is not known what the specific purpose of this ritual is, but some experts believe anointing camouflages the hedgehog with the new scent of the area and provides a possible poison or source of infection to any predator that gets poked by their spines. Anointing is sometimes also called anting because of a similar behavior in birds.

    Yeah, figured it was a stupid question about 30 seconds after I hit the "post" button.
    Awesome hedgehog though. Wish I could get one, but my house tends to vary in temp too far. From what I've read hedgehogs don't handle widely ranging temps very well. Stupid Colorado weather.

    They really dont at all. And all kinds of things you would never think of can kill them very quickly. like grade seed oil or tea leave oil or untreated cedar. It takes a good bit of reading up to take good care of one but its worth it they are really cool.

    Though they do sell heating rocks for hedgehogs so you don't have to worry about temps =)

    I finally posted my gift yesterday! As it's going to the US it will likely have to go on that Gentile's excuse for a postal service that is USPS for a while, so I don't expect it to arrive before the 25th of this month. I put an extra gift in to hopefully compensate for the delay.

    Whoah whoah whoah, you're not someone from the UK bitching about our postal system, are you? :lol:

    Yes, yes I am. My Graphic Violence Santee's gift was posted by the shipping company on 2nd December, it's been misdelivered at least once and is still in transit.

    Due to unavoidable delays (read: water falling from the sky on my non-work days keeping me from priming my santee's model), my gift will not be arriving before christmas. However, we're ready for priming and painting, and I have sculpted the most baddest ass base to date. I'm excited.

    So, after pulling an all nighter to get my very last paper in that completes my first, painful semester of graduate school, I am still awake for some strange reason: probably the excitement of freedom, even if temporary, is keeping my eyes open.

    While considering whether I should finally lay down, my wife comes by with a package and, loe and behold, my santa's present has come on this day of celebration!

    I don't have a camera to take pictures at the moment, but within the box was Citadels! This little gem is exactly the kind of game I was looking for as I had not even heard of it until I had it in my hands! After a brief look through on the rules, I expect this game to be hitting the table by Saturday and I will let you know how it goes, though it sounds right up our alley.

    Thanks Belligerent, good pick!

    still waiting on some pieces to arrive, but I dug through my plastics and created something a little extra. THe little extra I just started painting, and I think it's going to be way better then the other thing I had planned.

    I figure you can either assemble it as-is or else leave the wagon as a transport and jam the huge gun onto something else. Either option should be dedd killy


    Appropriately enough my own gift arrived today. A package containing none other than the dreaded pirate kaptin badrukk! Santa's elves tell me that this is part one of two of my gift, but either way, it's looking to be a green christmas :D

    Bah, I feel like the worst Santa; I've got my gift all picked out, and know exactly what I'm gonna get, I just wanna see if my FLGS has it before I order it online. And with my crazy work schedule I've not been awake during their open hours in 2 months. Perhaps an early-mid January gift will be a welcome surprise when normally in January there is nothing to look forward to but Spring in a few months!

    Painting finished! It turned out really nice. I'm just waiting for the basing to dry (Water effects)... Hopefully it'll be done by tomorrow morn.

    Unfortunately, the bitz I got my Santee from max mini still haven't arrived, so I will have to wait for them before I can send the gift. It certainly won't be their Christmas morning, so my Santa will have to content himself with some photos of his gift on Christmas Day while it's in transit. :)

    So, I was feeling a bit under the weather at work today, and decided to leave a bit early and stop off at the drugstore to grab some generic cough & cold gunk and some Orange Juice. As I passed the front office of my apartment complex, I heavily debated, do I check my mail, or just go bee-line to the bed, but I'm most pleased I chose the former.

    Hmm, a package, for me? I quickly took the slip from my mailbox to the office to request that they give me the precious cargo that's been left there for me.

    I approached the peculiar and bored looking guy manning the office, "Uh, hi, I've got a package slip, can you get this one for me?"
    "Sure, lemme just see your ID...OK... I'll be right back." and he disappeared into the back while I began filling out all the obviously necessary paperwork for acquiring a package.
    "Ah, here ya go, your reinforcements have arrived!" he said as he handed me the box.
    "Umm, thanks... see ya." and I quickly left, thinking man, they keep hiring weirder and weirder people.

    I dashed (well, not really, but I definitely moved a quicker pace than normal) to my apartment so I could see what had arrived for me, and so I could also help myself to the strange wonder that is Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold (it's so fizzy!). I looked at the box, The WarStore, most excellent, oh, it even says "Your reinforcements have arrived", I guess that guy was just reading after all, must... tear... through.... packaging!

    Inside, among the packaging peanuts laid a leather pouch... and not just any leather pouch, this was a leather pouch filled with a most excellent treasure.
    Crappy camera photos FTL:
    1221091642.jpg

    Inside was a set of quite possibly the most gorgeous dice I've ever seen, like seriously. They're hematite with red numbering, and the edges are way harder than the crap chessex dice I usually use. And the weight, oh man, the only thing I've seen that was even close to these were some pewter "dice" a friend had many years ago that were more potential murder weapons than toys.
    1221091643.jpg

    1221091646.jpg

    Unfortunately, I can't show off the glory of these dice with my phone, but here's a stock photo thats much better!
    31sGAWkONgL._SL500_AA210_.jpg

    Well, I guess that means I've been a good boy this year! I didn't see a PA name anywhere, but it looks to be someone from the UK, thanks to whoever you are, I'm feeling 100% better already!

    Tim, I don't even need the tracking. Its going to go from sac, to probably oakland, take a pitstop in pleasant hill because UPS is silly, and make its way to me on wed or thursday, depending on howe many medical clubs they hit up before swinging by my place.

    I've also pretty much known from the beginning(not that anybody said anything). Still, excited mode on!

    Attention Santa:
    I will be on vacation for a week and a half starting Thursday, so if the package arrives at my work in that time I won't get it until I come back. So don't start freaking out if you don't see a post by me for a while if it gets delivered in that time frame.

    In other news, I've had a hell of a time finding half of my santee's gift. Apparently GW has been out of it for a while and no one has it, so I had to pick something else from the list. It's finally on it's way to me, but I don't know if I'll have time to paint it :cry:
