Okay not exactly the most festive of things 🥴, but as I dropped my mates present off today before the big day tomorrow, he asked me if I would make his box of battle sisters over the Christmas break.
I said I would and here they are in all their rather militaristic glory…
To be honest they would nearly make me want to play 40k (but not enough to jump in). We will probably be using them in the 40k RPG that he has.
So I just checked with NORAD and Santa is. He has evidently just left Rome in Italy…
I am now going to give you my Top five Christmas Musical pieces…
1. Gaudete – Steeleye Span: https://youtu.be/tKT5_TlQ4GM
2 Il Dulci Jubilo – Mike Oldfield: https://youtu.be/VCvz7uflMIU
3. I Believe in Father Christmas – Greg Lake: https://youtu.be/yfY4b1NszpY
4. Oh Holy Night – various: https://youtu.be/qrUB9AEnnEc
5. Mary’s Boy Child – Boney M: https://youtu.be/cmm1gt_2SkQ
I could quite easily compile a list of Twenty, but haven’t the time. I heard ‘oh Holy Night’ coming out of Durham Cathedral one dark, snowy winter’s night and it was one of the most magical sounds I think I have ever heard. I sneaked into the back to listen to them…it was amazing, sent shivers down my spine then and still does every time I hear it.
So let me know your top five. Fairy Tale of New York was almost there, but Boney M knocked them off the list (perhaps controversially).
So as I finish this off. I just want to wish you all a very merry Christmas however you celebrate it.
