Foundry got me!

So following my wonderful wife's (Gawd bless her!) instructions, I bounced for hours between Old Glory and Foundry as to "What to order for me that she is getting me for Christmas".

Finally I went with Foundry and their Christmas Sale.
Old Glory will get me in January, I just know it.

I sucked it up and helped myself to 11 packs, (over 60 figures).

Gaaaah… There goes my painted to purchase count on the pledge all shot to hades and back….

Anyone else here have any "Christmas sale horror stories"?

I do not understand this "Pledge" nonsense at all.
Unpainted figures in bags are much more efficient at lining the walls of a fallout shelter than mounted based figures.

Mad Anthony Jones +1! My walk-in closet is my fallout shelter. Lord knows there's room for nothing else but me when that time comes….

It wasn't billed as a Christmas sale but I succumbed to North Star's half off Mark's Little Soldiers sale eliminating all figure painting progress.

Paint them? We're supposed to paint them?

Litko, I can now base thousands. However, painting them is still necessary..

I grew up thinking black Friday was an American thing. When did we start exporting it?

It's only through issues with their site reading my credit card that I haven't taken advantage of Victrix's current sale for conversions. $18 USD for 48 screaming Gauls is an absolutely insane deal.
