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.

      I got back to my Bones figures from the Kickstarter. The wolf familiar looks more like a dog to me. So I painted him to look like my wife's dog.

      A challenge in the "getting to know each other" thread from this month was to try something in the hobby you've never done before. Well, I've never done OSL. I decided to pick up the Bones Lich to use as the Lich Lord for Frostgrave, and figured I could try to match the effect shown on the "Thaw of the Lich Lord" cover with the glowing hands. 
       
      As the mini only has one free hand, I figure the green glow is only from one side... 
       

       
      I started out by priming with grey liner, then used R.A.M. Black on the robes, and linen white to try to figure out what is going to be hit by the glow. 
       

       
      Looks pretty good from this angle.
       
       
       
      Then it was time to add some color
       

       

       
      Thoughts? Comments? and most importantly, suggestions???

      I've been on a bit of a Sci-Fi kick recently, so I'm going to be converting and painting up the Bones version of the Nova Corp troops.
       
      The original head on this guy has a horrible mold line, so I swapped it with a GW Dark Eldar.  
                                                                                                                     
       
      Nothing wrong with her head, I just don't like having a bunch of clones, so I'll be giving her a bare head.
       

       
      With new head (from GW Wood Elves).                                                                                
                                                                                                                                                    

      These are the same figure. The one on the left has the head from the female trooper added. The one on the right is the original head; as you can see the detail is lousy, so it got cut off.
       

       
      The head/helmet with the lousy detail from the guy above is now hanging on her belt.        
       

       
      These guys have some extra equipment added.
       

       
      One of the guys from above is going to become a sniper.                                            
       

      And his rifle, courtesy of a GW Tau.

       
      That's all for now, but I have a few more conversions to do before painting starts.

      Last night I did a quick paint of a couple of minis while my wife painted a paint-by-numbers. I did a little bit of extra work this morning, and had some equipment malfunctions that damaged the minimal face I did paint. As this was all about a quick job, I only fixed the problem, but didn't redo it.
      The WIP is linked and photos will follow shortly in a separate post (I'm currently trapped by feline).
