Doing the Santa Clause Thing

 Image from the British Army website, here.
My blogging friend Chris Stoesen is to thank for getting me involved in the is year’s Santa Clause challenge.   You can read the full details about it here.  As I understand it, Chris as the organizer assigns participants a blogger, and then you go research that blog, figure out what the blogger likes to collect and find a figure, building, etc of no more than 5 pounds sterling (about $10 Canadian) in value, paint it, and send it to your assigned giftee by 20 December.  It’s not to be confused with the Secret Santa thing that is running elsewhere in the wargaming blogosphere.
I think this is a cracking idea and I’m part of it.   There’s still time for you to consider joining the fun.  Have a look at Chris’ website and contact him before September 15th.



  1. Thanks for the mention. It is great fun. I was a mere participant last year and had a great time. It was as much fun to paint up my gift for someone else as it was to get a wonderfully painted miniature in return. The value is only 5 pounds sterling and not 10. But feel free to indulge as you wish.

    Thanks again.

  2. Mike, thanks for pointing this out
