Mines arrived :) it got here yesterday all the way from the US but I only got around to opening it now. I'm sorry to say it got damaged in transit so no photos until I get it repaired. It's a plinth/statue with a Dragons head protruding from some large wings.

It makes a great display piece. I've not measured it properly though, so I'm not sure on its suitability as a unit filler


I hope you don't mind if I throw up some pictures of what it looked like when I sent it (hopefully it's not to far off now). This thread just needs more pictures. I'm really hoping my solder joints held and the light still works.

I agree we need more pictures. So, here is the one I send to Aicanor (and which she received a while ago). I hope she doesn't mind me putting up the pictures. I'll add some more to my plog in the next few days.

There's something stark about it I really like Rod.

Thanks. It was loads of fun putting it together. Still, having to paint for Aicanor is a pretty daunting prospect. She has a 27 page plog filled with amazing models. It was lots of fun putting together. And it let me try new things and different colors then my default red + white. Which is part of the fun of Secret Santa for me.

Good work! Really like it :)

No confirmation the gift I sent has been received yet... Slightly concerning! Although hopefully they just havent been online the last couple of weeks!

No updates from anyone?

If my recipient hasnt posted by the weekend to at least confirm receipt of said present I'll put my pics up. They arent a particularly active person on these forums what I can see anyway but would have been nice if it was received if he'd at least confirmed it arrived ok!

Good work buddy! No idea what model that is i'll be honest! Photos give a good idea at least of the model :)

My photography isnt any better and wasnt the best job ever but I enjoyed painting something different... my recipient said he was planning on starting an army of death so here's what I sent. (UK internal post so I would have expected it to get there fine...)

I really like the contrast between the muted colours (cloak back etc.) and the yellow/green etc.. My favourite unit from my Wood Elf army does something vaguely similar.

I'm not mad about the 7th edition vamp models but I really like the 'ghostliness' achieved here.

I wasn't part of this year, but I did kind of make up for last years piss poor effort.
I won this box set at a tournament, and thought why not paint it instead, some rather Pan Oceanian themed Imperial Service Sectorial models.

Someone knows their models! I just bought that direct from GW so didnt realise it was that "old". If i'd had more time i'd have thoroughly enjoyed a conversion but I was keen to make sure I was able to get something done relatively close to on time so I just went with an off the shelf model. Would be nice to hear it at least made it to its destination!


So anyway I have a package arriving on Tue where postage was underpaid, not expecting anything i've bought so outside chance its from one of you guys... watch this space (or not!) More than likely its a bill or some such!

Here's to hoping. Santa didn't have a very good run this (or rather last) year...

Nah, it was a hammer i'd ordered off eBay and the seller hadnt paid enough postage! Most disappointing... still nothing received here and looking like thats not going to change given the lack of responses from anyone yet to send!

Dear Ulthuans,

Sorry for returning back so late! I was running late but painting my Santa's gift when I did not received anything, combined with graduating and losing the hobby out of the eye all together I totally forgot about this!

Unfortunately I still not received anything so I hope that is due somebody not sending. I will continue with my very very very late Secret Santa's gift though since I have been painting again lately.

I love this idea but it might not have been the best idea for me to join, I hope the late summer Secret Santa gift will make up for it!

Dear regards,
Lord Drakon

Hey good to see you are keeping at it. This was by far our worst year, but hopefully a few more of you can finish up. Much better late than never.

Indeed. Better late then never. A lot of people somehow dropped out this year. Not sure what happened.
