Welcome to Librarium Online!
What's that I hear you say? "But Kuffy, it's only September!" I am aware of this, I've not gone mad. I am giving people time to join and then paint. As I have said in the past, the closer to December the mini is posted, the less likely it is to get to someone ready for Christmas itself.
For those are are seemingly confused at the prospect of Secret Santa, here is an explanation. Those members wanting to take part are given another member (usually divided up by continent for ease of postage) to paint a mini for and sent off. For free. Yep, a bit of Yuletide cheer and goodness. Give away a mini for free.
This is just the sign up thread, and all the selections are done by myself and in secret (hence the secret santa part. ). I will randomise those of a given continent and then they will paint a mini for the member above them in the list. Ideally it should be something they'll enjoy and use, but it could be something you want to paint. But please don't make this an excuse to get rid of Malformed Tommy you have had sat on your desk since his "accident".
How to Sign Up
As said above, this is just the sign up thread. All the details are done in secret. Now before I give details I have a disclaimer to make.
This activity will require the member [you] to pass personal information to a couple of members of LO [me and your painter]. Usually we have a strict policy against this, but as this is a bit of fun I think we can relax this.
However, you must be comfortable with this and it is my strictest promise that only two members will see your personal details and as soon as the event is over (sometime in Jan to allow for late posting) all the address shall be removed. I can provide proof should a member require it.
Now, with that over, how to sign up!
All a member is required to do at the moment is put their name down in this thread (ie, post an affirmative comment). If you want to at this time, then you may also send the desired details below in a PM to myself. This however must be done before the cut off date, to ensure I have time to send out the details to each participant.
What I require
To enter, you need to PM me the following details:
- Name and mailing address
- Likes and dislikes
- Non-GW - Y/N
- Any other information you think is helpful
When sending your address please include your county/state and most importantly your country.
When do we have until?
I will stop accepting new participants on:
Monday 18th October
Then I will make sure everyone involved has a 'painter' and it is all systems go.
I would also like to point out that it is suggested that you send your parcels via recorded delivery (or your countries equivalent) so you know where your parcel is. And make sure you include a return to sender address, should a problem arise.
Now, any questions please let me know; either here or in private if you wish.
The Painters List!

I like the idea... but I seem to remember that last year most people that sent painted minis got nothing in return because some of the accounts registered had no intention of ever painting or sending a model. How will that be prevented this time around? will there be a minimum posts/rep requirement for this exact reason?
If something like this was in place I would happily join in with the scheme
Done deal, I am in again for sure. Was great fun last time.
Are we breaking it up based on country/continental area again?
Another confirmation. This will be my first year participating so I'm very excited.

I think this sounds like a great idea. I'm in.
I won't be joining in this year, but I will be getting my model from last year finished in time for this Christmas! Pretty soon we'll be bringing my son's bedtime back a few hours so hopefully I'll have my evenings free to get it done in plenty of time Sorry Morden!
(also -T I'm still waiting to get one from you out of last years batch )
