My Advent Calendar

I love advent calendars. I love the build up to Christmas, and the excitement they bring as the big day gets closer and closer. As a kid we had card ones with little windows you could open that revealed a little picture related to Christmas. My brother and I used to fight over who got to open the window. Then came chocolate advent calendars! Oh my god! The game was changed forever. The picture calendar was replaced by a tiny slither of chocolate. Advent would never be the same, and those picture advent calendars became a thing of the past. 
This year things are a little but different. I am trying to lose some weight, as the big, bearded wargamer look isn't working for me anymore. I didn't really want chocolate ones. I joked with my wife that someone should make an advent calendar with wargaming figures inside instead of chocolates. 
  "Why don't I do that?" she said. 
  "What do you mean?" I asked, somewhat bemused
  "The kids have a wooden bus advent calendar in the loft. Why don't I get some figures and fill up the draws of the bus. You get one a day until Christmas."

Wow! This must be the best advent calendar! Ever!




Today's advent surprise was a roman slave girl for my Rome collection. Nice!

I’ve been suggesting to my wife for years that this is what I’d like, to no avail...
