28mm Hasslefree Rejects, Secret Santa, Pope Francis, Santa Claus, TMP and owning an original Anne O'Leary!

Received these two gits, one handsome and one Ray, from my Secret Santa plus a couple of bags of modern British and a further vehicle to come!!!Very generous and very much appreciated!!


Ray in his usual pose and me with a coke and a katana (spot on in fact).....


While at Blog-Con  Andrew (Loki) gave me my religious alter ego Pope Francis, a truly excellent model......


I received this original and quite amazing miniature from Anne O' Leary plus some pieces for other people to have and a couple of the new Reaper Bones miniatures (Golems) which I've painted for the challenge......


I got this from my secret Santa Claus benefactor, lovely painted stuff from GZG.......


.........also got a years TMP membership!

Thanks very much!
