Kickstarter Sophie pictures

14 posts in this topic

Just got my Sophie, comes in six parts: front wheel, front of bike, back of bike, Sophie's main body, and the two wings - should be easy to green stuff in the wing slots if you just want a "biker girl."

Model looks great, but there is a fairly large gap where the wheel part meets the front of the bike part that will need some green stuff to fill in so that the tire segments line up correctly.

The model can stand without a base even if you use just the bike and Sophie body without wings (but the wings help).

You might need to gently push the handle bars around a bit to get Sophie into the proper seating position. Overall, a great model, can't wait to start painting it!

 

Here is a size comparison:

Woo! Did you get a t-shirt/hat with yours or was that a solo item? I'm attempting to gauge how much longer I'm gonna have to wait for mine to show up.

As Bryan posted in another thread they are about 50% of the way through getting all the Sophies shipped out. Logistics on getting the t-shirts and hats that are also part of this initial shipment for some of those levels seemed to have caused the delay.

 

I have no idea what your second question is even about. Did you order something else from Reaper? You are certainly not the only one that has not received your Sophie yet. A little patience is all that is required, your turn in the shipping line is based on what might also be included with your UL Sophie. There is quite the logistical puzzle to solve when shipping out this many miniatures in a very short period of time.

Might it by any chance be the "Ghost" kickstarter pledge level, aka Urban Legend Sophie?

I didn't order a shirt, so that may have sped up the process for me. I was also one of the early backers, so if they are shipping in batches chronologically, that might be why I got mine earlier.

I noticed her fingers are on the handlebars pretty good. Am I mistaken or are they pre-molded on and you have to glue her wrist to her arm socket? That's what it's looking like.

Looks like her arms and the handle bars are one piece.

Her arms, no. Her hands, yes. The join is at the wrists.

I've been test fitting my Sophie, and yeah it's gonna take finangling to get her set right. I was a bit disappointed that she didn't come with the normal beveled base. I'm going to have to figure something out.

      So I have a way of grabbing some terrain items for a 'quick' paint job, and it turning out to be not so quick. See what I mean with the Bones book cases, and barrels, some cows, and the Bones 1 caskets.  
       
      I should have known better when I sat down to knock out just a couple of beds. Well... maybe they don't look as good as I think they do, because I know how much bleeding time I put into them, and maybe I've gotten some Stockholm syndrome towards them.
       
      I'll let you all decide.
       





       
       
       
      And just because, Here's a Pig to wrap in all those blankets.

       
      Let me know what you all think.
       
      Thanks for looking!

      It's been a while since I did a WIP. I suck at them. As you can see, this mini is like 15 steps already into it. But i just got my camera working, so that's my excuse. 
       
      Anyways, I wanted to share my thoughts, and get people's opinions.
       

       
       
      My thought is: I'm tired of the old stereotypes of Good. Why can't red stand for the passion and the blood sacrifice of the innocents bravely giving their life to protect freedom? Why can't a pillar of good be based on black marble? 
       
      So I am trying for an overall feeling of good to radiate from these pillars. It's not there yet, because that is going to be relayed mostly through color. I will be using more and more warmer tones as I work the various surfaces up to their final highlights. 
       
      Nothing is currently done on these things yet. I want to put a couple washes in a few spots on the marble, and then that will be done. (All except the final gloss coat of course.) 
       
      The red areas will be brightened. I believe with oranges and yellows to give them more of a warm glow. 
       
      As you can see from the lady on the right, the female statues will actually be done in white marble. I am in the process of building up the highlights (and smoothing them out) on the right. After I get the highlights and contrast done, then I'll put in some veining. I expect the higher highlights to be in even warmer tones. 
       
      All the edging, and wings will be done in true metallic metals. Right now the one on the left is done in P3 Blighted Gold, and the right Scale 45 Necro Gold. The difference is harder to tell in RL, so it's interesting there is more difference in the photograph. I will probably continue to highlight up in the Scale 45 Gold series. 
       
      I haven't decided if I am going to do Gold details on the scrollwork detail on the caps of the pillars. I'll see after I get the rest of the gold done. 
       
      The sword will be done in True Metallics Silver.
       
      The details on the base of the column will probably also be gold. Though if there is too much gold everywhere else, I will contemplate Silver.
       
      The plants on the base will be done in lush spring green colors, and the roses will probably not be red, I am going to shift them either orange or yellow, because otherwise there might be too much red on the mini. It all depends on how it balances. 
       
      I haven't decided how I am going to paint the plant pots. My current thoughts are: White, terracotta, brass, silver, or gold. We will see what is needed to balance composition and keep the eye moving. 
       
      So I grabbed these to paint them up 'real quick'. This is always what happens.
       
      (Note: I am doing these gals in my 'Pseudo-tabletop' style, as in, I'm going for 'look nice', without taking all the time to work up from thin layers, as I would for display. )
       
      But C&C is always welcome.

      I had a bunch of new figures arrive the other day. I am trying to decide which set to paint up first. Any thoughts?
      Here are the new fishmen, a mind flayer, and an evil cleric of the sea:

      I'd like to paint up this guy to be a green and/or bronze dragon:

      A storm and a cloud giant:

      Two more dancing girls:

      A marid and a hippocampus chariot:

       
      So, which one first?

      For my latest group of models I wanted to paint some monsters- preferably with tentacles.  I thought this "roper" would be easy enough but I decided to spice it up a little on the base.  The 'shrooms are just little acorns The kids helped me collect last fall (painted the rounder ones as pumpkins).
       
      I really don't know if I put the tentacles in the right spots but I like how dynamic they make this model look.
