@ESE - I am guessing that you will need to re-grow your head so it can explode all over again when the plastic Harlequins arrive in a couple of months?

You are correct, it is 'the most generous gift in the history of TDC's slave raid', one that is not likely to be surpassed.  Barenone told me what he had got you over a week ago and it was all I could do to contain myself and not make some teaser comment before it arrived bounce

I've glued my head back together a couple of times only to have it explode when I look back at it. Washed the parts last night and will get cracking on assembly tomorrow once I'm ready to sit down with some epoxy and get serious. I haven't painted a DE vehicle in a while and might paint up a Ravager first to get back in DE painting shape. Twisted Evil

They have indeed, Tengu Razz. There can't be many people signing off as "T" and having also professed to putting it in a washing powder box. Rest assured, they will be fed only the finest ice cream Smile

I got mine today, UPS was a little late with it. I got a Big Mek with SAG and a Mek Gun, both very useful to my Bad Moonz indeed. Not sure what the username is for the sender, but thanks very much!

I'm just hoping my giftee shows off the painted piece I sent - it was years in the making.

Anyhow, glad you are happy with the poor creatures, Panicpuppet I hope they did not eat the mincemeat.

Thanks Partridge King

Thor, your masterpiece has arrived safely! I'm sorry about the lack of response until now, but I hadn't yet sent off my own gift until recently, and I was determined that I was not to open my own package until I'd sent off my victim's gift.

Your addition to the troll gift also came through safe and sound:



I'm sorry that you felt in any way intimidated to convert something. There was really no need to feel intimidated! I love conversions and have a home for any one. Still, the rest of your gift was very generous, particularly since I don't have either model, and I have plans that the kit will come in very handy for >Wink

I feel like it must be obvious who my victim is at this point. As this is my first raid, I have learned that when Archon Santa tells you to have your stuff ready and posted for Dec 16th, HE MEANS IT. I promise to do better next year.

I look forward to seeing what my victim thinks when his parcel arrives!

Awesome.

And, hey, how can you get the new Hellions without getting one of the classics to play with also Wink
Your only requirement is making sure to re-gift the mascot next year.

The TDC slave raid has an official white elephant. This just became a thing. Twisted Evil

Thanks for all the kind words about the painted present. It truly was a pleasure to paint, and an excellent distraction from a Christmas day at work.

Thing is, he looks lonely on his own. I think I might have to convert a few more Talos riders to go with him now...

I'm a fan of all three actually - some great kit-bashing of old, new and fantasy.

Love the idea of the white elephant... hope that is not me next year

I'm glad they came out well - and more importantly that you like them Tengu - I'm not going to lie I ummed and aaaarghed and was torn between liking the conversions enough to have budgeted to make one for myself, to worrying that they might not be a sufficient gift by themselves. So thanks everyone for the ego boost.

Additionally Plastikente your painting of the Klaivexauros - cause he's gotta be a Klaivex to have that sort of throne - is awesome! Further to that, the Klaivexauros itself is insane, in the most wonderful of ways! Dragontree your fleshcrafting could never be described as staid, you sir have likely won one of whatever twisted awards Haemonculi have among themselves.... which incidentally is a hilarious idea, imagine the incredible soft, genteel clapping as the artisans gathered in some form of grotesque chamber - my minds-eye is currently stuck on a traditional modern day convention hall which adds hilarity rather than horror - delight in the cavalcade of horrors the winners have created are presented in turn on the stage.

Speaking of twisted artisans, Plastikente I must apologise for the quality of the previous photos I put up, looking over them again it's clear how badly they show the quality of your workmanship! I need to find my other camera - and better lighting - and try again, because they are beautiful models and they need to be properly represented! If you happen to have taken decent photos of them prior to sending them, I'd love to see them, if only so I can link them to my Kabal page, and of course so people can see the models properly. Thank you very much for them!

Also barenone... wow!

Well, the beavers and drunken lumberjacks at Canada Post have informed me that my package has landed safely with my victim. I'll leave it to him to reveal the dastardly contents...

Thank you thank you thank you Mr. Pink. The models are amazing. I took some pictures this morning. But have yet gotten to a computer to post them. (For those who are wondering what they are look at his logs)

The three are amazing. Now to find places for them in my kabal. Smile
