I also have some Napoleonic ships on the way from Navwar. My recent games, and rebasing, have given me a chance to evaluate my collection and I have highlighted a few gaps, mostly in the area of frigates, although my French are also short of 74s. So I braved Navwar's archaic, paper and post order system, and bought some goodies from the UK. Unfortunately they will probably arrive as rapidly as the full-sized vessels took to get from there to Australia. I can't see them dropping anchor under our Christmas tree ready for the big day.
Of course there may also be game-related surprises on the way, but I doubt it. Our family has reached the stage where we pretty much organise our own presents now, with a few minor surprises thrown in just to make the whole thing worthwhile.
I plan to fit in some games over the next few days though. Once my wife's birthday (Christmas Eve) and the main day are out of the way.
How about you? How gamey is your Christmas?
I leave you with the current state of our nativity scene.
