Holiday Thanks to SNS

Hello, folks! I'm taking a short break from the yuletide celebrations (i.e., up late wrapping gifts and putting toys together) and wanted to wish all of you a fantastic Christmas. I hope everyone is enjoying a safe and wonderful holiday season with your families and loved ones. So, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Also I want to give a quick shout-out and thank you to Jake and Evan, authors of the new blog Shaken, Not Stunned where they are better known as Daemonetteboobs and Angelus Censura. I recently won their Holiday Giveaway drawing and chose as my prize a Space Marine Drop Pod for use with my Raptors marines. I was delighted to have received this generous gift from them yesterday afternoon and in time for the holidays no less. Awesome, thank you so much guys! This is my first Drop Pod so I'm eager to get it ready for use in my army although I haven't yet decided what manner of death I want to stuff inside. I'm leaning toward a Dreadnought of some sort but will have to think more about it to be sure.

Okay, no doubt most of you are either busy and having fun or else sleeping so I'll just end this now. Also I seem to be having all sorts of problems with my computer right now so it's probably best that I wrap this up by saying goodnight and farewell. I wish for you a peaceful and joyous holiday... Merry Christmas!

    Have fun with that drop pod- just remember there is no return mechanism on that beast for a reason. :)

  11. @ Daemonetteboobs - Merry Christmas to you and thanks again for the awesome prize! That was really cool that it showed up for Christmas, you weren't kidding about the orbital deployment, were you? Best wishes to you and Evan and good luck with all your hobby plans, take care!

    @ DrGabe - Sorry but I've got no time for chitchat, I'm too busy helping Sonic Mario rescue John Madden from the evil Donkey Kong Dance Dance tennis party. :) Glad you liked my rad pajamas, you can really tell how much I've matured over the last year. I hope you're having a great time with the family, Merry Christmas!!!

  15. The new Land Raider looks cool, might get 2 1 for Night Lords and the other for Medusa's Sons.

  16. Nice! I like the new land raider as well, sounds like you've got exciting plans for it. Be sure to let us know what you think of the kit, no doubt a lot of people would find a product review very helpful. Take care, Derina!

  18. Sorry about the delay, Derina, I hope you weren't offended as I just got caught up and forgot to post a response here. Thanks for the info about the VAT increase, I didn't know about that but will now see if there's anything I need to order beforehand... the buggers! ;) Also I tried to send you an email with my contact info but am not sure if it went through to you. I'd be happy though to get in touch via facebook, also I'm on MyBattalion if you're interested (Papa JJ, listed as one of the site's "Featured Members"). I hope you're doing really well, best wishes to you!
