Christmas Gift Guide for Gamers

Have no idea what to buy that special gamer in your life for Christmas. Look no further!

The idea of buying presents for people is wildly outdated and was eventually abolished back in 2027. However if your friends and family still want to honour your presence for another solar cycle with a small gift and you have already brought literally everything that Games Workshop sells (who hasn’t at this point) why not try some of the below:

Flashy Dice

Full disclosure – Dice can be purchased from any gaming shop anywhere.

Wyrmwood Gaming Dice Holder

Somewhere to hold a small number of those fancy dice.

Dragon Shield Standard Sleeves

Dragon Shield appear to last longer that the Ultra Pro alternatives.

Winsor and Newton Series 7 Brushes 

Other brushes are available if you are on a budget but if you want luxury good then these are the prettiest.

Wet Palette

You can make one for under a £1 / $1 but if you know someone who still doesn’t use one then hand them this as a gift and change their life.

Flory Washes

So many uses for weathering and washing, just remember to seal it in with vanish after use.

Vallejo Liquid Metal Paints

The nicest looking metals, however they are fiddly to use if you’ve never used alcohol when painting (except to drink).

Chilvers Industries

  • DeadlyYellow

    The best thing about the P3 wet palette is the case. It’s a rubbish foam insert instead of a sponge, and the paper is too thin and prone to curling.

    • Aezeal

      I hear wet pallete is the way to go for better painting.. can you tell me why (just anoff topic question since you appear to use it).

      • DeadlyYellow

        Extends the paint’s workable life outside of a pot by keeping it damp and humid. Good if you’re working in short stints or dry environments, though the paint will still separate if left too long.

      • Andrew

        They’re really good for keeping your paint from drying out. Especially when you’re working on big units where you use many of the same color. If you want to try one out, save a blister your models come in; turn the plastic part over and wet the foam. Then put a piece of parchment paper cut to fit over the foam. Costs nothing and works the same as the PP one.

  • Aezeal

    You’ve missed my Sylvaneth new boxed set.
