#warmongers Secret Santa 2013 is Live

Those that signed up to this year’s #warmongers Secret Santa should have all received your emails by now. Some of you I’ve not emailed before so make sure you check you spam/junk folders.


Apologies to all for the delay in getting the emails sent out. It’s a lengthy process administrating a Secret Santa with this many people across 4 continents and spare time is in short supply at the moment.

Just a reminder to those taking part what you’ve agreed to:

The spend limit will be 10GBP/16USD/12.00Euro excluding postage. You don’t have to spend that much but try not to go over. Obviously I can’t impose restrictions but I suggest you avoid gifts that are, or include the following:


Adult or sexual in nature


Sharp objects



Anything that could or will go boom.

Parcels must be posted no later than the 15th December 2013 to allow for postal services to be shit and please include in the parcel a note saying who you are, your Twitter name (if applicable) and a festive message. I know it’s supposed to be secret but the surprise in the post is secret enough. I think it far nicer to be able to thank the person.

Anyway, good luck and happy shopping and if you have any questions tweet me or use the hashtag #warmongersSecretSanta.


#warmongers Secret Santa Presents

Once again happy Christmas to #warmongers the world over. And as it is this most special of days I wanted to share with you some of the gifts fellow #warmongers received from one another as part of the #warmongersSecretSanta. And as the feedback has been so positive I’m definitely planning on repeating it again next year.

So first up…me! Now, I must emphasise that I drew every name at random – although I did group by country to keep costs down for folk – and I not only ended up drawing Dave (@docbungle) but he drew me.

Knowing each other as well as we do, gifts were really quite straight forward so he got me some Terran Alliance Cruisers pretty much forcing me into collecting the fleet have ummed and erred about it for so long and I got him Captain Murdoch for his Cygnar.


What’s great to see is how many of you managed to get something that suited the recipient down to the ground whether it was hobby related or not. Below is a collection of snaps of just some of the presents received. I think you’ll agree there’s some ace presents. My personal favourite is the Fall of Damnos and Piñata…























#warmongers Secret Santa Update

The closing data has been and gone for the #warmonger Secret Santa and those taking part should all have emails from me with the person they’re buying a present for.

If, for any reason, you’ve signed up and haven’t received an email or I’ve made a mistake and you’ve received two then please get in touch either on Twitter, email or via the contact form and I’ll get things ironed out.

Otherwise good luck buying for your respective #warmonger. Reminder of what you need to do can be found here.

And it’d be great to put up pics of what everyone gets so please feel free to email me with them.
