Well Christmas is less then a week away and if you are like me you have a wish list of what you want/would like to receive from Friends and/or Family for Christmas. Surprisingly mine isn't that large, I tried to keep everything under $10 on my list and told everyone that if they want to get me stuff off the list that one or two of the items would be good.
Here's my list

Ebbles Miniatures List

Misc. Companies List
Any modern looking Zombies-
Sets from Studio Miniatures (if you want to go this route you only need to purchase one set)

Figures from eM4 miniatures (anything other then the Robots and Cyborgs from the Future Skirmish line of unpainted Metal Minis)
Copplestone Castings (Various sets from the future Wars Line, only one set is needed to be purchased, all sets product code starts with FW followed by the number, here are the numbers, 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 16, 17, 21, 23, 24, 26, 33, 34, 35. All sets are about $13.20USD with the current exchange rate at the time of this posting)
In all actuality I don't expect any of the items on this list (other then what I may/will purchase), even though I gave this list to family and friends its more of a check list for me to use when getting additional miniatures for my ATZ games.
Some items on my list that I didn't give to family and friends are items such as 1/42 scale die cast cars to use as props in my games. I currently have 4 die casts 2 Hummer H2s- one Red and one Yellow (now repainted Black), 1 Police Interceptor/Cruiser and one US Mail Truck. I am planning on getting an additional Hummer or two or 20 (one will definitely be a yellow one that I will paint the #3 onto the doors), I also want to get an additional Mail Truck and repaint it as a Dept. of Public Works truck (perfect for the Police or FBI to use as an undercover stake out vehicle, yeah I know so Cliche, LOL). I also want to get a VW Mini Bus or two (one for use as a News Van and the other repainted to look like the ones the DHARMA Initiative used in LOST).
In addition to the items on my list I also told people that gift cards/certificates for one of the local Hobby Shops would also be appreciated.
Now that's not to say I am greedy, I have donated to the local Old Newsboys (they provide a service similar to USMC's Toys for Tots, in that they give toys to unfortunate children who otherwise wouldn't be having a Christmas with any gifts) and Toys for Tots, the two organizations I try to donate to every year.
I don't know if I will post anything again before Christmas, so if I don't Have a Merry Christmas. For those of you who are of other religions, Happy Hanukkah, Ashura, Yule/Litha, Kwanzaa or any other religious holiday you may observe during the month of December, also I am sorry if the well wishes for your holiday are late. No matter what your Religion and/or religious Holidays you observe have fun and most importantly Stay Safe.
Edit: Had to use some (as in a good $80US chunk) of the money I would have been using to get me more figures on a new Wireless Router today, the one I had decided to kick the bucket and would no longer communicate with anything connected to it via Cat 5 cable (though it still would connect to anything via WiFi). Granted I could have probably have gotten a cheaper router, but unfortunately I needed a new one ASAP and instead of driving 15 minutes to Wal-Mart (which last time I was there didnt have really and routers) or 20 minutes to Staples, I drove up to the local Radio Shack that's only a minute or two away and got the new router.
