Merry Christmas to all from Must Contain Minis!!!
I hope that you have a wonderful holiday doing whatever makes you happy. Perhaps you are spending time with family or friends, or just plain out relaxing.
Generally, christmas is a time for giving and spending time with loved ones. At the same time, there is a little kid in all of us that likes to receive. Did you have a Christmas Wish List this year?
I didn’t, but I do have items that I am hoping for over the holidays (whether I buy it for myself or it is given to me by someone else). I didn’t really share this list with friends or family (until today), so I really can’t call it a “wish list.” 🙂
What I was hoping includes several items from Oathmark and Test of Honour as well as some pre-orders for Gangs of Rome and the Fallout: The Miniatures Game. All of the games listed above are fairly affordable, but it is the large items on my list that I may actually end up getting instead. Those larger items would include a Camera and an Air-Brush set up.
I might have a line on a couple of used cameras that might be “good enough to work” with from friends and family, but have also had my eyes on a Canon Rebel for a while. I might check out some Boxing Day Sales for this item – but it might also be an item that I continue to wait on. I would use the camera for this website. Right now, I use a Canon Powershot (which is 9-years old), an IPad and a Cell Pone as my cameras for Must Contain Minis.
Aside from the camera, I would really like an air-brush with a compressor to help me paint miniatures up faster.
I saw a really nice Iwata starter set on sale with some paints and training DVDs included, but I am actually looking to buy this item from my favourite FLGs instead. They carry Badger products (as well as some other makes) so I will likely end up with something like a Badger Air-Brush Starter System with a Badger 175 or 155 Brush. The store owner will help guide me to the right set-up for me once his stock arrives.
For those that don’t know, my favourite FLGs (Forbes Hobbies) includes a Paint Bar and the owner will give paint lessons to people that buy from him. If you live near the Cambridge area (Ontario, Canada), be sure to check out this store. It has a great gaming space, a paint bar, and carries great games (like Bolt Action).
How about you? Did you get what you were hoping for? Let me know in the comments below.
Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
