Yaktribe secret Santa 2022! Roll up, roll up, get yer names in!

Hmm, feeling a bit like the yak grinch. Posted mine a few weeks ago so my guy will be getting theirs on time but……. In true Manc style, I left it until the death (ask the Tribemeet committe, they all had to re-adjust their definition of “last-minute” when I got involved) but then I badly sprained my wrist playing football and couldn’t paint for about a month. I hoped it would heal in time but with the Royal Mail strikes and everything else it was getting too last minute even for me so I made the difficult decision to part with a much-loved recently painted and converted mini (technically cheating yak Santa). - so when the photos are posted, if one looks familiar when you see it, please don’t spill! Also, to my recipient, if you work out that it’s you, please accept my apologies, I hope that getting something in time is better than getting something else late. Know that I loved that guy and I am genuinely gutted to lose it - may he bring you peace, joy and prosperity in all the enemies smote beneath his boot!

Had to cheat at YakSanta as well. My last painted mini had to step in (I'm ahead on next year at least). I had a great time converting and painting him and I hope he is worthy. However a few yaks might recognise him so mums the word.

I wanted to open mine now but upon closer inspection it seems I’m not allowed!

Presents opened, kids are building Lego and I've opened my present. Thank you, Yaksanta! A lovely model, perfectly suited for a game of... the Necromunda version of Hunt Da Dred. I forget the name of the scenario. But here it is!

Thank you again, Yaksanta! I'm not sure I can guess who it is from, maybe tomorrow...
 
On that note, the Troll has a guilty admission this year, because I was waiting for one of the excessive constant eBay purchases that land at Troll towers I accidentally opened mine in early December! Bad Troll!

I’ve been trying to decide where he’s from but must admit I’m stumped! Great model though, he now resides next to the other “Champions” of the ‘CUBE in my figure cabinet.

Really struggled to get a decent photo of him and do the paint job justice hence the the below:


 
Thank you yaksanta, wonderful OG escher models, _really_ nicely painted [my poo lights and cellphone camera don't do them justice] plus a great, thematic seasonal greeting. Great stuff altogether
