Well it goes without saying that Ian at The Blog With No Name is awesome. (In actuality he is brilliant and it his wife/organizer that is truly awesome.) This is the second year for his Secret Santa project and I love the concept. For those not in on it, several bloggers through our hats into the ring and his wife randomly assigned us to one another to provide a wargame based Secret Santa gift. The brilliance is the guarantee that I will get at least one gift directly related to my hobby this year.
This years package arrived yesterday, a simple box from Scale Creep Miniatures. Inside was the neatly wrapped package you see above. Scale Creep is definitely upping their game. I am not sure what it is, but I do know that it is of moderate heft and will be painted by January 1st 2014.
Last year's gift came directly from Baccus and was a great addition to my 6mm Celt Project.
This is what I like about this project. I don't know what I am going to get, but chances are it is something I may not buy otherwise. The result is a great addition or change of direction for a project. In last years case it helped me maintain the momentum and complete a stalled project. I only hope my target enjoys the gift I selected.
So to Ian I can confirm that my gift arrived, and to whoever sent it: Thanks, I hope your Christmas is just as awesome.
