Secret Santa

SECRET SANTA 2017

santa claus

As I have done before, I am once again participating in the Secret Santa event.  This event was originally begun by Ian and Cath over at the Blog With No name.  This year, however, they have decided to take a hiatus for various reasons.  Thanks to both Ian and Cath for all the fun these last couple of years.  Thanks are also due to Roy Williamson at Never Mind the Jankers who has offered to host this year.

One of the requirements is for us participants to give a list for our Secret Santa for ideas, so here is mine for this year.  I will try to offer sources for US to save shipping,  where I can.

Gangsters:

American Craftsman House

Grey Harbor House B

I only now the one source for this just now.

American War for Independence: Perry Brothers

AWI Civilians

Christmas Loot!

Well, another Christmas has come and gone and we have done very well here at Cry Havoc!

I will begin with the required post.  For the last few years,l I have participated in the Secret Santa program organized by Catherine and Ian over at THE BLOG WITH NO NAME.  this is a lot of fun.  The way it works is a number of us wargaming bloggers share are information and post ideas of things we would like for about 15 GBP.  Catherine assigns us people in some unknown magical fashion and we secretly send our little packages to our assigned target.

My gift just arrived today, a little late.  I only mention this because one, my odd sense of humor finds it intriguing that these little guys were cast in England, sent off to Germany and then finally here to the United States!  They have yet to see battle but they are already well traveled.

Secondly, I have been informed that they were sent late due to a family illness at Christmas.  I wanted to share my hopes and wishes for the best of all health to you, whoever are.  I know some of the blogging community have been greatly challenged with illness this Christmas Season, and whether serious or slight I hope that you and yours are doing as well as you might.

What did I get?  20170105_231238

Two packs of fine Perry Brothers miniatures.  One Queen’s Rangers Command and one Queen’s Rangers Light Infantry.  these are destined to be the start of my new project, focussing on Benedict Arnold’ invasion of Virginia in 1781.  the Queen’s Rangers will my  Main Force for this Sharp Practice campaign using Dawns and Departures.  Thank for sending me these and thanks to Cath and Ian for continuing this Yule tradition!

I also received a number of things from Charlie Foxtrot Models.  The huge Georgian mansion, a porch house, the stone barn I have so long wanted and his pig sty.  I also received the driveway, pond and entrance gate to match the Georgian house.  More on these will appear here later.  These are mostly to be used for Chain of Command but I am sure some of them will find themselves serving double duty.

From Sally 4th, for my 7TV THE BEAT game, I have some new photorealistic row houses a Pub and Corner Store.  These are really nice and I am slowly seeing the Greendock take shape.

I am still awaiting my Blood and Plunder Kickstarter, which should arrive any day.  I know they are being fulfilled and look forward to getting mine with great anticipation.  Lastly, I have some more stuff from Colin at Charlie Foxtrot on its way, most notably his new Tidewater House that I linked to in my last post.  That is a project that I have been involved with and am very chuffed to see it come to fruition.  More on that here later as well.

Cheers, and Happy New Year!

Ron

Secret Santa

santa

Once again it is that time for the wonderful Secret Santa program run ever year by Catherine and Ian at THE BLOG WITH NO NAME.  This is a fun event that I have participated in for the last two years.  (in fact, it occurs to me I never posted the photos of my wonderful British Para I received last year, bad giftee).

Anyways, this is a secret Santa gift exchange for wargaming bloggers, where we purchase a gift (for 15 BPS) for our randomly assigned target.  We inform our own Secret Santas what we want by posting on our own blogs.  I am really chuffed this year with my target as he is a man I consider a friend, and we have some similar interests,  what a coincidence!

Since most of the participants are in Britain and I am here in the States, for my own list I will try where I can do give U.S. suppliers for the British stuff (so as to possibly lower shipping costs).

So here it goes…

Sarissa Precision Radar Station  Need this little guy for a Chain of Command scenario but I think it will come in handy for Pulp Alley and 7TV as well.  I do not know of a US source for these, though Arcane scenery sends me stuff cheaply and quickly.

Perry’s Queen’s Rangers Interested in command, lights and hussars.  As long as we are on the topic any of the Hesse Cassel Jagers would be greatly  appreciated as well.  Working on a Virginia 1781 campaign!

From Brigade Games, Arab Revolt line, Lawrence of Arabia himself, Arab Irregular command, or one of the packs of Arab irregulars with or without lewis guns.

Also from Brigade, the Artisan  Kiss Kiss Bang Bang line, British Operatives or field agents 11, or the Copplestone Kiss Kiss Bang Bang line, Trainee agents, more KGB men, or soul section.

I hope that is enough for ideas,

Cheers, and Merry Christmas!!
