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 bought into the recent Oathsworn Fur and Feathers Kickstarter. The first thing up on my painting table from this is the scenery piece, a mouse house. I am imagining this is going to see use as a hobbit dwelling more frequently...

      I had a really good time with this kit, and I feel like I learned a lot from it, too.  Win-win!
       

      This is probably my best paint job to date, and it was pretty cool to see those highlights and shades build up layer by layer.  Similar to the skeleton in the first kit, this one was quite fun to work on despite being a fairly simple model.
       

      If the wizard was the best paint job, this one was the most fun.  Sadly, something about the posture just confounded me when it came to trying to take good pictures of it.  Also, those lips
       

      I was a bit sloppy with this one, probably because I wanted to just finish with the kits and get on to doing my own minis again.  Nevertheless, it was a neat challenge to try doing so many layers of colors for this one, and if nothing else, that left eye is probably the best eye I've painted (right one's a bit of a mess ).
       
      On the whole, I'm very grateful for all of the people who suggested getting the LTP kits.  Definitely a great couple of learning tools.  Many thanks!

      Another set complete!  This time it's a group of Eastern Fantasy themed adventurers and encounters.  Almost all the minis are from the third Bones Kickstarter, with the exception of the Tengu/Kenku Monk armed with kamas.  She's from Stonehaven.


      The group:


       
       
      The Oni:


       
       


       
       
      The Kitsune.  The male is one of my favorites...I hadn't even noticed the sake glass in his hand  until I started painting!  That and his swagger make for a very characterful sculpt.


       

       
       
      Just some Human Monks:


       



      The Kenku/Tengu:


       

       
      This is the non-Reaper one, a Monk from Stonehaven Miniatures:


       
      Flock!

      @Everyone :: Please feel free to share pix of creations from the Conversion Classes in this thread. 
       
      I will **start:
       

      As a beginning exercise Gene Bobby and Jason had everyone pick a body, add one thing, and pass it to the right. That was repeated three times. These were the result.

      Idk if this is a KS model or one I randomly bought to fill out our need for giant monsters that are not cardboard cutouts. Anyway, he's done. He was going to maybe go in a desert diorama but I decided against (he didn't end up fitting). I might go back over his claw bits again tho, they seem a lot darker in the pic than they do IRL but theyr'e still just not quite right. Anyway, he's based on a couple of RL pics, mostly going for a shiny red carapace kind of idea. He's not in my WIP thread, so just a quick note, I undercoated him mournfang brown (a red brown GW colour) and then built up to the red with reaper's bloodstain red and later clotted red (my absolutely fave triad *ever*)
