Happy Holidays fellow Warseer members!

So I was thinking....If I were to ask that Jolly fat man in the red suit for something 40K related, and actually get it no matter it's rarity or price, what would I ask for?

After long debate I finally decided that the one thing I would ask for is the limited edition Ragnar Blackmane diorama from the Black Library. Not for Ragnar but for the totally bitchin' Chaos Marine Champion he's fighting!
Supposedly only about a 500 of these were ever made.
check em out here.

a close runner-up would be the Kroot Bird...it's so cute.

What about you my fellow Warseerers? If you could get anything 40K related that you wanted, what would you ask, beg or wish for?

I'm trying to rebuild my lost ork army so I wished for a box of Boyz and three Killa Kans.

MANTA!!!

NOOOOOOOO! Damn you Destris, I was literally about to say that! RAWR!!!!!!!!

OK, if it's not the Manta I'd have to go either:
--Lots of new Eldar
--New Forgeworld Daemon Prince
Those are the main two I can think of.

And it's Christmas dammit! Screw political (in)correctness!

A couple squads of Scout Bikes and a LRC for my SM army spring immediately to mind. Upon reflection, I'd like to get a whole pile of those FW-produced Death Korps of Krieg figures.

What about buying out Games Workshop? If I could, I would. And I would charge reasonable prices - having money is one thing, having happy customers is another. :D

I asked my parents for a Manta, they gave me 'the look'. Then I asked them for 9 Pirahna's, and they reluctantly agreed.

If I asked my parents for something like that, only thing I'd get is kick in the butt.Repeatedly!

I would ask for evry GW model in existence and charge you all double to buy them back!!
Just kidding. I would ask for a ton of space marine old banners, as i recently got a second edition librarian with a banner pole, but it didnt come with one!!!

Every GW model in existance? That would include other peoples models, which would count as stealing. Then you would go to prison for mass theft! :D

At least one of each of the Rogue Trader era Imperial Army/Guard models! With multiples of specialists and enough to do and entire army, ahahahaa...

I would ask the whole GW/WD staff, and kick their asses, rip out their nostrils, cut them between their toes with paper, and poke them in the eyebals with my Tyrant's Scything Talons, IOW, torture them untill they restore both WD and their prices to the state it was in two years ago.

Other than that, I can't think of anything! I'm just not 'ready' to buy new miniatures yet! Perhaps the Eldar codex, that's something you don't have to paint too...

I wish for more 1st/ 2nd edition guardians! Oh and an armorcast falcon and wave serpent too....

I wish for an entire Witch hunters army. Completely painted with enough units to run a pure sisters army or an army with inquisitors and arco-flagellants. See how nice I am, I didnt ask for any inducted SM or IG.

I was about to say Thunderhawk Gunship, but while that'd be nice, you know what I'd REALLY like?

The Games Day 1991 Space Marine Captain.

http://216.77.188.54/coDataImages/p/Groups/137/137974/folders/253221/2063269GDCaptain.jpg

I've wanted to get my hands on this figure ever since I saw it in the 'Eavy Metal section of the 2nd edition rulebook. I looked for him everywhere at the time, but didn't know back then that he was a limited edition Games Day model. And having found out, I've so far been unable to find one for sale on eBay or anywhere else for a price which I could afford. So sadly, it appears that I'm never going to get this figure. :( But if I could get anything, it'd be that guy.

the one thing i always wanted (http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f20/lordmalektheredknight/91gamesdaycaptain.jpg) (seriously, since the very first day i opened my first ever 40K rulebook - 2nd ed - over 10 years ago), i now have (thanks to eBay!).

now, if Santa could get me unreleased models...

http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f20/lordmalektheredknight/electropriest94.jpg
a squad of 19 Electro Priests ("counts as" Sisters Repentia, of course!) should do... backed up by these beauties:

http://www.collecting-citadel-miniatures.com/wiki/images/8/82/Unreleased_-_Adeptus_Mechanicus_Vehicle_2.jpg and http://www.collecting-citadel-miniatures.com/wiki/images/4/44/Unreleased_-_Adeptus_Mechanicus_Vehicle_1.jpg!
(dont know what they are, but they look cool and are unreleased AdMech, so thts all the reasons i need to ask Santa!)

and i would be eternally greatful to jolly old fellow. :D

wow, freaky! i wrote my post while you wrote that^ (see my link!).
i bought mine for £56 inc P&P last year (although i was so glad to get him, i rounded up to £60 - my limit had been £110 so i was still happy!). the funny thing was, i had never bought anything for myself on eBay (only for the missus), and one day i was bored so typed in "limited edition space marine captain" (or whatever), just for a laugh, and my jaw hit the keyboard when he popped up on the screen! LOL

I would like the unreleased necron lord. I saw one on the internet, and it was selling for more than $100! (US) That was just the starting bid...Aw well, so much for having the most unique necron lord in the world...

You lucky bastard, how I envy you!

No kidding. I started reading your post and all I could think was "WTF?!!". :D

I periodically check eBay for him, but when I do see him, it's a bit to much for me to afford. :(

And I thought ForgeWorld was expensive!
*Remembers Tau Manta*
Oh yeah, it is. But still, £60 for a single blister!

The old Jes Goodwin Assassin, but I already managed to find one on eBay a couple of months ago, bit battered, though.

This one (http://solegends.com/citcat911/c2034impforces-h.htm), for people who aren't sure which one I mean. Rightmost figure, second row from bottom.

Well, some time or will to actually start painting again would be nice.

Ho-hum, at least the new Eldar CODEX is under the tree... :D I've shaken it and everything!

I would have to say the DKoK Big Mortar Squad. Three of em. They Kill ya. Mmmmm...

Captain Micha
18-12-2006, 00:35
hmmm gimme a manta
a few titans of Imperium manufacture of course.
hmmm 10 pariah
10 immortals
6 wraiths

oh and the eldar bonesinger. Why? because I am -not- buying battle of maccragge and a battleforce to get one.. 45+90 does not = free mini.

and maybe the greater daemon of nurgy from forgeworld. that thing makes my stomach turn everytime I see it.

18-12-2006, 00:39
EDIT: OK, that's strange. It wasn't supposed to be limited edition, just direct sales only. Stupid GW.

Just buy it via Mail Order. It's only £7. Are you talking about the Special Edition Autarch? He's crap anyways.

Way back when I started the hobby, GW had a program in Australia called "Skullz" - for every certain amount of money ($25, i think?) you would get a skull sticker, and once you'd collected enough, you could geta prize.

i got 10 Skulls stickers and got that Assassin as my prize. He's sitting at home with the most terrible paintjob.

I must strip him and repaint him, actually...

In any case, my wishlist would consist of simple Fire Dragons, Swooping Hawks and Dire Avengers...

EDIT: I just discovered what I REALLY want for Christmas.

19-12-2006, 00:52
Firstly, I would like most of the things on this (http://www.solegends.com/citle/index19902000.htm#gd) page.

The three main things I want are:

This (http://www.solegends.com/citle/citle2000/armyboxes/abUltraMarineSgt.htm)

The Mole Mortar (http://www.solegends.com/citrt/rtb03devastators.htm)


And the whole set (http://www.solegends.com/citrare/gyrinxjok.htm), especially the Death Ferret.


How can you not love it?

Tau Man
19-12-2006, 01:01
I would want a Tau Manta, it's just too expensive, mabey I will ask "santa", probably wont happen.

MarksmanCypher
19-12-2006, 01:02
That model is awsome! what is it?

Mortarion of the Death Guard from Epic. I'd be using it in my 40k Nurgle army as the Grim Reaper, my lord with a Manreaper and Daemonic Flight.

Gearux
19-12-2006, 01:02
I would love a T-bird or some one to paint my Iron Hands golden deamon quality. Or a model of Ferrus Manus in Terminator armour for my upcoming Istvaan army.

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth :D

And, of course, a Death Guard army, an Iron Warriors army, and completion of my Eldar army...

LMAO!! I remember the Tarantula thingies.. back in 2nd edition when i played Blood Angels i had some sort of gun like that, lol .. brings back memories.

And there was some sick disgusting weapon that came like that, a laser or cannon of some kind that would bust right through stuff, it looked like the tarantula.
