With Christmas 2 weeks away and plenty of time to shop or you can just slip in some last-minute gift idea’s for santa to bring you, if you’re like me every year you get asked the same question what would you like for christmas? Well I can tell you this, I have never said I want my two front teeth unless they were able to dominate a battle field.
Buying for a gamer can be very difficult, their needs are usually very specific to the project they are working on, personality or hottest new releases, and unless you are part of the community the task can be daunting, that is why I am here to help give some idea’s to make your life easier for both yourself and you’re a gift giver.
I like to lay out my lists so that who ever is buying for me knows where to look, models and board games are not cheep so if you can avoid miss spent dollars all the better. If there is a store that you visit regularly then talk to them, see if you can give them a copy of your list and send your buyers there. This will simplify the process and help support your local game store.
There are a lot of places you can go to get gift ideas, or to purchases that special gift for that special someone, I myself purchase my hobby supplies from Black Knight Games in Hamilton, Ontario. The staff there are very knowledgable or if your out-of-town you can rely on their shipping times, if not don’t worry I am sure there is a game supplier near you. I am sure you’re wondering why my turn is dragging on but I am building up to my point. There are a few great gift idea’s and new releases that would make great gifts, and I am about to let roll the dice.
First of for the gamer who play Warmachine or Horders, Privateer Press will be releasing a few awesome models for Khador, Legion of Everblight and Circle, below are the releases for the last-minute shopper, Click the links for images;
Khador Man-o-war Shocktroopers are a great gift idea for the player who like bulky armour and hard-hitting medium base infantry, they are not new models just a new sculpt and released as plastic instead of pewter. Privateer has this box of 5 models listed at $44.99 US. These models will be on the shelves as of December 21st.
The Warmongers are also medium base infantry for Legion of Everblight, I haven’t had a chance to play with these as they are brand new models, there is 5 in a box and personally I think these models look great, they are a bit steep in price but that is what you get when your dealing with pewter models. When they hit the shelves on December 21st you can expect them to run around $64.99
And last but not least December 21st also marks the first Hordes battle engine to be released. The Celestial Fulcrum not to be confused with the Celestial Falcon, will be released on December 21st, this models is awesome looking, and if you have had a chance to pick up Domination then you know just how good this model really is, all the battle engines are hard on the wallet but they are large models and a painters dream, This one is priced at $84.99 and any circle player would be ecstatic to open this on Christmas day.
Check back tomorrow for a list of Games Workshop, Gale Force 9 and board game idea’s.
Untill then keep rolling.
