I've been a good boy, honest

Have you made a Christmas List yet? And more importantly, have you been Naughty or Nice? We've been getting Christmas adverts on TV for over a month already (the first I saw was at the end of September!) but as far as I am concerned, Christmas starts after November the 5th. So with the Gunpowder Plot celebrations over, I have started to put together my Wish List for this year.

I thought it might be a bit difficult to put together a list this year because I have bought quite a lot over the last few months. But no gamer ever has enough scenery, or enough books, or enough miniatures. I laugh at such a suggestion! And as I am breaking into a new scale (15mm) and a new game (Flames of War) its been an expensive few months getting equipped. So what do I want need? Scenery features high on my list. Most of the stuff I already own is for 28mm/D&D so I'm starting from scratch with 15mm scenery. I've picked up a few buildings and hills during the summer but I like the look of the Battlefield in a Box (Rivers) set by Battlefront. I like the idea of it being already painted and ready to use - I have enough projects backing up as it is. I'm also in need of some pre-painted buildings but I've yet to find a reasonably priced source for these.

I also have several books on my list, including the new Transitions Trilogy by R.A. Salvatore. I'm holding out for a boxed set but I'm not sure if it will be available this side of Christmas. Keeping with books I also want to pick up a copy of Tank Men by Robert Kershaw. I've seen it on sale for a while now and it's time I got a copy.

I'm still trying to decide what miniatures I want but the Wish List is always an year round work-in-progress! So, whats on your Christmas List?

  1. Indeed you can never have enough miniatures, but we need more research into the problem having more minis than you can paint. More arms? Painting slaves? Do they sell those?


Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, keep rolling high!
