A little late this year, but here anyway!

Sign up will be open to 17th September, on Sunday 18th you'll be assigned a Secret Santa project of your very own.

For new faces amongst the Asur - this is quite simple – you just paint (or even paint and convert) a model to your best ability and in time send it to another member of Ulthuan.net assigned to you. Remember is not a painting competition, everyone can participate. That is the Christmas spirit after all, isn't it?

If you want to be a Secret Santa this year, sign below. Let us know what army (armies) you collect, colour schemes, what you would particularly like to receive. Of course, Santa may still think there is something else you would like/deserve more.
Edit: If you do not wish to post worldwide, tell us where you are able to post.

Sooo... sign up and have fun!

Based on past years' experience there are guidelines every participant agrees to follow by signing up.


1. Taking pics of the work in progress AND finished project.

Make sure you have the pics backed-up properly (hard disc crashes and memory card failures happen...). Unfortunately, sometimes the original gets lost in the Warp and the pics are all we have. And of course everyone will want to see the WIP pics!

2. Making regular updates on the project status.
Please check in at least once a month to let everyone know you're still around.

3. Letting us know if you have a problem finishing the project in time.
In case someone is not able to finish the project in time/at all, the sooner we learn of it, the better. - This will not exclude anyone from any future projects – we know things happen outside Ulthuan.

3. Keeping the receipt from your post office.
The post companies worldwide probably give you some kind of confirmation they received a package from you so in case the model doesn't arrive to its destination, you can send a scan of it to the person in charge of the SS project (by PM of course).

Earliest date for sending the project off will be set at the end of November (so we can wait for the giftee to confirm his continued presence and delay the sending in the case we do not have the confirmation from him/her to further minimize MIA problems.

Of course, even with all these precautions something can go wrong, so everyone entering the project should keep it in mind. But hopefully this will, as a whole, be even more enjoyable than last years' Santas. If any of you have a suggestion what more to do to make the project more enjoyable for everyone, please include it in your sign-up post. It will be heard.

From 2014 Secret Santa we still have Il Maestro to deliver (I have seen some WIPs from him, and he might Ger it done one day. I just removed myself from the black list and that leaves just Elessehta there to find his model and send it.

The Blacklist (2011-2013):

Brian Mage
Il Maestro
Elessehta of Yvresse (-->Do not lose any more models!!!)

2016 list of participants

I'm in again, and more than happy to post world wide.

As to what I'd like, unless you have some really really old (80s) high elves that you want to paint and give away I really don't need anything high elf, though a converted female character would likely see some gameplay.

I am still looking for things I can use for mordheim though. A Dark Elf would be great. A savage orc would be cool too. Other than that anything that seems cool can probably find a spot in the game somewhere.

Been looking forward to this, please count me in!

Appreciate I havent been on the forums much lately but in the middle of a house extension and pc time is very limited to say the least. I will say now that i'll do my best to get a gift out in time for Christmas but given i've half a house to decorate (quite literally) this will be tough, but i'd sooner send something i'm happy with out rather than just a shoddy paint job. I will do my best though and 100% I will deliver a present I hope the recipient is happy with :)

In terms of what I receive I am open to anything and just grateful to receive a gift. Still play my High Elves (Square bases please, none of this AoS tripe!) Dont really need a painted mage but other than that any character/model(s) would get table time given my limited painted collection. (Primary colours dark blue - old WH Regal Blue/Kantor Blue now and white i
