In response to Gerome's email about Old School Citadel Christmases of yesteryear, yes there were indeed a range of limited (and not so limited) Christmas related miniatures produced throughout the '80s. So similar to yesterday's post, I have an un-numbered count down of sorts of the wonders of GW's legacy of festive lead.

This wonderful model was sculpted by Bob Naismith. It was a numbered limited edition release and looks rather Rogue Trader inspired. I'd love to get hold of this model and create a festive RT scenario around it!
|"Ha, ha, ha..."|
|"Hugthgg, hugthgg, hugthgg..."|
Another Bob Naismith sculpt, a festive mix between Father Christmas and Lovecraftian Horror. This one was a limited edition release available through mail order in the December issue of White Dwarf in 1986.
DWARF FATHER CHRISTMAS
|"Humpf, humpf, humpf..."|
DARK FUTURE FATHER CHRISTMAS
|"Have you been a good boy this year?"|
AND FINALLY... THE CHRISTMAS MARINES!
The mystery has finally been solved about one of the missing legions! They were a festive bunch who's combat doctrine involved the consumption of fermented vegetable products and unruly singing. No wonder they were cleansed from the Imperial Records, they would have got right up Angron's nose!
