... What would you have?

Any size or price, completely free if you've been a good boy or girl. His merry elves are standing by to cast it/them especially for you.

Think I'd have me a Reaver or a Thunderhawk on the big side.

Maybe Huron or Vullkan as a stocking filler.

You? :)

Is this actual mystical Santa, or a funny smelling guy with a false beard who claims to be Santa, but actually just wants to lure me into his van? Because I'm not going to fall for that old ruse again! :shifty:


I'd have between 24 and 30 Immortals, since I'll be damned if I'm going to pay out 8 a pop for them.

What Lord Damocles said, but with Wraithguard.

Or maybe some killa kanz.

Provided it's not the aforementioned 'Bad Santa' trying to convince me to put my hand in his sack...
I'd probably go with a Meka Dread and some Grot Tanks :D

Blood Angels is my first army and it is not really well painted, since the release of the new Blood Angels codex I want to redo my army, My own successor chapter.
I now have 1500 points worth of minis, all in their boxes ready to be built:).

For Christmas I choose a box of sternguard veteran, a rhino and a box of assault marines. Wrapping all the other boxes would have been to boring:)

17-12-2010, 13:14
Devastators or a land raider. I haven't got any space marine models, but I like both of those.

17-12-2010, 13:15
Three Hornets and 20 Jetbikes.

Pontiff
17-12-2010, 13:19
pretty much all the ones I had in the 80s and sold/traded/gave away and are now costing me a small fortune to re buy on ebay.

So in short I'd go for some of the 40k slann, the initial nid model that was MO only and a few landraiders.

While I *know* the old stuff isnt as well sculpted to me it has more character and sums up the 'golden age' of gw... you know the golden age - those first two years you started getting into it :)

If it had to be new stuff I'd be quite happy with some of the new scenery like the wizards tower or perhaps the modular board sections.

However i do know that 'santa in the guise of the wife' has got me the re-issues of the elementals, baby dragons and wizards fmailiars to satisfy my retro craze :)

17-12-2010, 13:25
I'd love two ravenwing battleforces to finish off my bike army, the ultramarines DVD and a Thunderhawk. If santas going to abuse me then I may as well get my moneys worth!

Godzooky
17-12-2010, 13:28
Seeing that I mentioned no cap on the amount of stuff you could ask Santa for, I have to say I'm extremely impressed by how modest everybody's requests have been. Just nice things to flesh out existing armies and projects. Bravo to you, people. Bravo. :)

17-12-2010, 13:52
going for a bad santa; i want a complete nurgle army from him including a oop unclean one

(imagine santa touched by nurgle: "is that a maggot crawling up your beard???)

antin3
17-12-2010, 14:07
I would like a land raider or maybe some terminators. If I have to climb in the van with bad Santa I want an entire SM battle company.

Pontiff
17-12-2010, 14:14
I cant give you santa touched by nurgle but I can offer you a 40k Santa....

Nomrana Est
17-12-2010, 14:29
Let me think...

First up, some scratchbuilding materials to make some cool things, then possibly a couple of boxes of Termies for my First Company, if it's the nice Santa.

If not, then the entirety of a Chapter's armoury please, i.e 25 Preds, 12 Landies etc etc.

Bloodknight
17-12-2010, 16:11
A custom cast of me in Mordian uniform. ;) And 3 Valkyries.

BobtheInquisitor
17-12-2010, 16:16
I want one of the old space fleet plastic sets that came with an Imperial Gothic Class Battleship and an Eldar Battleship. I don't even know where to begin looking to find one of those.

Spyral
17-12-2010, 16:25
A Land Raider Redeemer + Assault Terminators!

17-12-2010, 16:31
Bloodcrushers. I'm damned if I'm paying list price for those buggers.

I'd rather be given the patience and the willpower to paint the ones I already have.

Let me be the first to be a jerk then:

All of them. I'll take a few of everything. Forgeworld included.

...

Ok, seriously I would take a baneblade (for fun) and a Cadian battleforce (can never have too many guardsmen). Barring that, a Chaos Land Raider and a box of Chaos Terminators.

17-12-2010, 16:44
A lorry load of Squats.

No one said they had to be current GW models :angel:

Overlord Krycis
17-12-2010, 17:24
I'd personally be happy with a few more boxes of Flaggelants and ghouls to complete my Coven Dark Eldar (I can sculpt/kitbash everything else).
That or a few more rhinos for my Marines would be nice... :)

If it's the "Bad" Santa...I'd want the owning rights to GW for the mental, physical and emotional trauma suffered...:cries:

Baragash
17-12-2010, 17:27
Blight Drones and Blood Slaughters would make me happy. Oh and the FW Huron model.

ColShaw
17-12-2010, 17:37
I'd sure like a Forgeworld Gorgon; nothing like a cross between a WWI tank and a Higgins Boat that can carry 50 Guardsmen!

Lathrael
17-12-2010, 17:41
Voidraven and razorwing set. If santa can exist so can unreleased models :P

Duoth
17-12-2010, 18:43
3 squads of DKoK infantry... because theres nothing like paying $54 for a squad.

magicmonkey
17-12-2010, 18:55
hhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..... i want a cookie! or maybe just 5 rhinoes ( im meching up 2 armies in jan/feb) and a couple of cool looking FW hqs including a flyrant, for all my armies, so they look nice and impressive leaders.

MarcoSkoll
17-12-2010, 19:25
Mars Pattern Warhound. Love the model, but I can't justify in excess of 300 for a model that wouldn't be much more than a glorified display piece.
(Maybe, just maybe, I'll scratchbuild one someday. Harder to make than the Lucius pattern, but I just prefer the Mars.)

If I'm being well behaved and going for something small - a squad of the old Howling Banshees. I don't know who looked at the new models and thought they were an improvement, but they want their head tied.

Wouldn't say no to the OOP 54mm Kal Jericho either.

I would have to restrain myself as I have a problem of only being interested in new models for about 2 weeks before getting bored of them.

Just nice things to flesh out existing armies and projects. Bravo to you, people. Bravo. :)Well then, let me blow that right out of the water.... an Eldar army, from scratch.

Three squads each of Dire Avengers and Wraithguard (complete with Warlocks), more 'locks with Farseers (foot and jebike), an Autarch, one each of teh rest of the aspect warrior squads, and a couple of squads of jetbikes. Plus falcons for everybody and a couple of tanks. And if FW is allowed, then an Avatar, a titan, and some aircraft.

So, I'll have two armies I can prevaricate about painting rather than one...

Actually, if FW is allowed, I might go for some Elysian guard instead.

Leman Russ Model. I've seen a picture of it, and seeing as its not availible anymore, I can only hope Santa will bring me it

Pontiff
17-12-2010, 22:46
You mean the Leman Russ with two wolves? He's not impossible to find pops up on ebay every now and then and i dont recall him being that expensive. May be worth asking about on some collectors and modellers web forums, i do that for OOP models and fequently have kind souls selling me them cheap or just giving them away.

Da Eavy
17-12-2010, 23:04
An Inquisition Army?
Failing that.....
A few Tarantula Sentry turrets from Forgeworld?
Anyway I really want a Land Raider with 4 Flamestorm Cannon Sponsons and Hull Mounted Twin Heavy Flamer with Transport Capacity of 20 :D
That would keep me warm on the cold nights...

Abaraxas
17-12-2010, 23:15
An Ork Stompa, if Santa could fit one in his sack :angel:

Stupidly overpriced as nearly all BIN RT figures are from dealers. I'd guess he's actually worth about 10 tops.

17-12-2010, 23:20
Urrgghh no way!

He doesnt have his banner pole or Freki and Geri-WAY overpriced.

Indeed, however same chap was 'OOP Gaunts Ghosts' for sale at a *bargain* price of 29.99.... shame they are only 18 BRAND NEW off the GW sites collectors section :)

Some ebayers never cease to amaze me.

RT era "Flying couch" Land Speeder. Then a pair of 2nd edition Griffons with metal Cadian crew. Then some Squats.

neko
18-12-2010, 00:42
100% ownership of GW, then I can force them to do my evil bidding! ;)

Oh, has to be models... Well, I'll start with a drop fleet of a Manta and multiple Orcas, then follow up with several Tigersharks (including at least one AX-1-0), a dozen Barracudas, and at least 2 dozen Remora as a solid escort.

bluemage
18-12-2010, 01:10
I also would just like the patience to paint the models I already have. And maybe some random RT era models.

Corbulo
18-12-2010, 05:07
a Manta and a few XV8's 88's and 9's as well as shadowsun.


3 squads of DKoK infantry... because theres nothing like paying $54 for a squad.

Try living in NZ mate its $54 just for Basic GW plastic infantry squads.(e.g. Kroot, fire warriors, tactical marines, cadian shock troops, etc.) FW DKoK squads are more around $80-90 here.

Can never have to many building:shifty:

Psycoticspacemarine
18-12-2010, 07:14
I would take the entire 1st & 2nd Companies for my blood angels.

For the 1st company I want 40 Terminators and 60 Vanguard Vets.(or maybe 30 VV & 30 Sternguard)

Sith Monkey
18-12-2010, 07:20
Imperial guard metal tank riders would be good, dont need anything else. Already having a mountain of boxes and gray plastic haunting me why would i ask for more? lol.

Angelwing
18-12-2010, 09:55
I'd like:
A hellhound kit.
2 pyrovores, 2 venomthropes, 2 biovores to fill out the broods.
Forgeworld hive tyrants and ripper swarms.

OOP models: tyranid squigs swarms, the very first tyranid model that I've only seen in a photo in the rogue trader book, chaos dwarf hobgoblins with hand weapons, hobgoblins with bows, hobgoblin wolf riders and bull centaurs.

Thats greedy enough I think.

Putty
18-12-2010, 10:20
i'll ask santa for money instead.

Dronevil
18-12-2010, 11:27
50 Wraithguard (so I could max out my troops slots)

Or 16 Landspeeders (3 full units + 1 for Sammael)

Lord Malorne
18-12-2010, 11:47

LonelyPath
18-12-2010, 12:09
For me since I'm feeling greedy...

FW Ork Battle Fortress
FW Mega Dread
70 FW Death Guard and CSM boxes to fill out the rest of the pieces
3 IG Griffons
Vanaheim Pattern Medusa

Yep, definitely greedy, heheh.

18-12-2010, 17:00
I'd like:
, the very first tyranid model that I've only seen in a photo in the rogue trader book, .

Unfortunatley unreleased i beleive as I'm looking for one too :(

I've only ever seen it on SOL, in the RT book and in one private collection of a former eavy metal painter.

LonelyPath

No but its this one...

LonelyPath
18-12-2010, 17:54
Ah, that old Nid model. They were on general release, but i never saw that many of them around either. They were deleted pretty early on though and I picked up a couple through Mail Order, might have been a limited release, I just remember not seeing many and that they were deleted early on :(

What he said. I was disgusted when I saw their price tag.

Arvendragon
18-12-2010, 19:22
I think I'd just take everything...
An infinite number of each! At the local store where I can pick up, not swamping my house or dropped on top of me.

Angelwing
19-12-2010, 09:05

I'd love just one for my collection. A brood of 3 so I could field them as tyranid warriors would be fantastic! :cool:

Simo429
19-12-2010, 09:32
I've asked Santa for an achilles although for the wolves of russ it will be renamed a land raider Beowulf for the more barbarian feel.

-Loki-
19-12-2010, 10:13
I'd ask for a Heirophant.

Actually, my fiancee played santa and bought me one, which is sitting on top of the cupboard waiting for Christmas day.

Yeah, those were nice models and were on general release for a while but not for very long :( I think I have 1 or 2 of them somewhere that I picked up eons ago in some clearance sale. I think they weren't either selling well or the mold got broken, dunno what really happened just that they stopped making them shortly and suddenly after they were released (through a catalogue update page available through Mail Order, they never made a WD debut).

Shinigami
20-12-2010, 18:52
hmm anything you say...?

i'd ask for an Emperror Titan designed by the Forgeworld guys, with a datasheet that is closer to the real thing by GW :D

but id be happy with a second mars pattern warhound or a greyknights thunderhawk, been eyeing that last one for weeks now... must resist....!

LonelyPath
20-12-2010, 19:07

No problem, I have no use for them. I'm always hunting down parts of my collection to use again so I'll hopefully come across them art some point :)

Boomstikk
20-12-2010, 19:15
A Manta, then I'd sell it on eBay for 800.

For myself though, Reaver Titan no doubt.

Earthbeard
20-12-2010, 21:42
Santa is often the missus and silly expensive toys are not often given :P

But Santa knows me too well, so no doubt the lovely hunky son of a bitch'll get me some Nurgle themed goodies.

The Highlander
20-12-2010, 22:33
Two exorcists (already assembled), a couple of squads of SOB along with rhinos and immolators, an Ork Mega Dread and one of those ‘eavy metal sprayguns to paint it all!

ooglatjama
20-12-2010, 22:50
A bunch of forgeworld so I could resell.

Ultrasmurf
21-12-2010, 10:12
I would get the mega paint set (I have a lot of unpainted Space marines).
Also a The Spear of Sicarius if only it hadn't Disappeared.

LonelyPath
21-12-2010, 13:08
When the Spear of Sicarius was released I counted up the value of the contents. it was 10 cheaper to buy them individually... :(

21-12-2010, 16:14
Going to assume, for myself, and not for resale, or all I'd be going for it highest price, and so I'm actually looking at highest price of things I'd actually want. Since it would be "free", and by your Thunderhawk comment you are including FW:

IMPERIAL FORTRESS WALLS (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Warhammer-40000/Warhammer_40,000_Terrain/IMPERIAL-FORTRESS-WALLS.html)

Because why not?

Morkash
21-12-2010, 16:18
A Imperator Titan would be nice...if that's not possible, a nice Chaos Reaver would also do it, of course. :)

Misfratz
21-12-2010, 21:58
I wouldn't mind a lucky dip, actually, I think I'm in that sort of random mood.

It would also intrigue me to see what my girlfriend would choose for me, if given a blank slate. It might give me some insight into her thinking about me, and of the aesthetics of the models, and the combination of the two. A Greater Daemon of Nurgle probably doesn't go down too well in that context...

Failing that, I am looking forward to getting hold of some Killa Kanz and a Deff Dread when I have painted the Orks I already have, so if one of those turned up a bit ahead of schedule on Saturday then that would certainly not be a disappointment.

TimLeeson
22-12-2010, 02:19
Since nobody makes the kind of models I really would love, ill have to settle for a lump of coal.

At least I can paint the lump of coal to look like a shoggoth or something.

A Forgeworld Grey Knight land raider redeemer and all of the siege of Vraks books

also since I've been kinda good.. a grey knight thunderhawk

jack da greenskin
22-12-2010, 14:35
2 battlewagons, a generous helping of ork boyz, a nobs boxed set and skill at sculpting :)

Failing that, 3 FW mega dreads, 15 killa kans, big mek buzzgob, 5 deff dreads and some grot tanks. I'm bored of my deffskull dreadmob, I think a badmoon one would perform a lot better :p

Turns out I'm actually getting a stompa so cant complain.
