[Archive] GW Xmas presents from misguided relatives

Hammerhand:

I know you all got some, post it here!

A misguided relative got me a Tau Battle force to help finish my Eldar army. This is made worse by the fact that the msguided relative was my wife and only had to look at the codex book that was on my bedside table.

I have a friend who’s mum got him a forgeworld super heavy tank for his empire army!

cornixt:

I once got a load of random 40K stuff (some IG and some Eldar) when I only played fantasy. They said that was what the shop recommended! I asked only for GW vouchers in the end

torn:

my brother got me an earthshaker for xmas :stuck_out_tongue:

minty:

I got, in one christmas, along with a nice £700 cash in total

6 boxes of sisters of battle, 4 dwarf cannons and a baneblade

well, they all found a use, but now I have lots of cool 40K stuff to paint:mad

caos dwrf:

WOW! A "Hammer of Sigmar" steam tank :hat

I wished for some 3ed second hand CD miniatures - and my wife handed me a dowloaded Ravening Hordes army list - and was very pleased with herself.
Reason: She was told at the local miniature shop, that you couldn't by CDs any longer, but they could be downloaded for free at the GW Website!!!!!!!!!!!!! Think we have straighten that out now :)
