This year I got only a few gaming/modeling related items, although they were pretty great ones!
First, I got "The First Heretic" from my wife's cousins. This is the next book for me in the Horus Heresy series, although at this point I believe that the series has devolved into more of a category, rather than a linear progression. Looking forward to reading this one after I finish Embassytown.
Second, I got the AD&D dungeon master's guide from my wife, which was very cool and surprising. I read this book for the first time last year, as you no doubt read here. The particular copy that I got is in very good condition, was printed in 1979, and has a $10 price sticker on it from Toys R Us, clearly from the glory days when RPGs were stocked in what is now mostly a diaper and video game store.
The third modeling item I got is a Revell Republic Star Destroyer (Venator) from my sister and her family. A kit I have long lusted over is at last mine! Thank you Amazon lists! At some point in the near future, I will have finally finished building the Baneblade, and will be able to move on to this kit as my "main" build. (Since the Baneblade took three years, I expect that this might take a while too). I think that I will go big on this one, and try some super detailing, photo etch, and after market kit add-ons... maybe even light it! So very excited about this, and expect to see more in the future.
Here is a pile of inspirational links for later:
