What figures, buildings, books, paints, rules etc. have you asked Santa to bring you this Christmas? I've asked for a couple bags of 54-60mm plastic Alamo figures from Paragon-Scenics. On Black Friday my wife bought and gave me an Ott magnifying lamp that transforms from floor to table lamp. I'm already using it to finish up the last of the Deadite reinforcements for my Army of Darkness game.

I try to give my wife a varied list of books, records and game-related stuff to choose from. This year it is some Perry AWI goodies, some Vallejo paint and brushes, and a book on naval warfare in the HYW. If I get even one of those items I'll be pretty happy.

I never ask for gaming stuff.

I would like one of the new Citadel Painting Handles. I have a lot of everything else.

Like Extra Crispy I don't ask for gaming things. My wife used to go to my local hobby shop & the owner would direct her to what I had looked at etc but the store & my friend are both passed on.

Wife and kids always buy me four Windsor and Newton Series 7's brushes every Xmas, without fail.

Have a couple of wargaming/military books coming too in the shape of Charles Grant's Refighting History Vol 2 & 3.

I just asked for another Sector Mechanicus kit (whatever size she chose) to expand my rusty battleground.

Also, pug musketeers- the traditional Christmas gift of my people.

Books. The better half knows the formula; obscure as possible military topic and must have footnotes.
