Ok, I've got the box organized and packed; hopefully I can make to the post office Monday to start it on it's way.
Here's the list:
Ratmaster 2000--arrived 10/31, sent 11/1
SGhawkins 09--arrived11/2, sent 11/10
ShadowPhase--arrived 11/13, sent 11/16
Strawhat--arrived 11/19, sent 12/1
RobinH--arrived 1/8, sent 1/9
Necromancer---arrived 1/14, sent 1/16
Generic Fighter--arrived 1/18, sent 1/22
Disserma--arrived 1/24, sent 2/6
If there's anything left, send it back to me, and it'll get put into the next (regular version) BoGW that happens.
There are enough items included for everyone to make four (4) picks. After you've grabbed some stuff, seal it back up and send it the next person. This is all based on the generosity of people at Reapercon, so there's no need to put anything back in; this is a straight up gift.
There are 2 pairs of sunglasses in there; they don't have anything to do with Reaper/Reapercon other than that they were in the swag bag, and (I'm guessing) donated by the city of Denton. If you want a pair take 'em, they don't have to count as one of your 4 items, unless your conscience dictates otherwise.
If you want to help out with international shipping fees (and no one is under any obligation to do so) contact Strawhat, GlitterWolf, or RobinH to work something out.
A big THANK YOU!! to everyone who donated stuff for this to happen.
Got a little bored with the half-finished things on my desk (which explains why they're all half finished and over two years old... Or eight years, in one case...), So I decided I'd start on something I've wanted to paint to a high level for a long time.
Jeff Grace did a magnificent job sculpting this snake lady, and offering a lot of wonderful opportunity for painters. Although I love love looooooove Marike Reimer's subtly colored studio paint job, I wanted something with a bit more color... Beautiful as they are, Diamondbacks aren't the only snakes in the world, and I like snake-folk that aren't just Brown or green.
So I'm talking inspiration from the lovely Redbellied Snake, a small species of the Eastern USA. Maybe too docile a species to expect as a Gorgon, but I don't mind. Look at the color!
So the plan is to go with the highly saturated red-orange of her scutes, abdomen and face, the relatively dull brown of her back, and a pale bluey green for her dress (I suppose the dress is more or less a chiton, but the more I've looked at it, the more it starts looking like a peplos with sleeves and a very small himation...I dunno). I also intend transparency on the garment, which is why I stayed inside the lines about as well as a kindergartner on Red Bull.
This is about 15 minutes of work, that's all I had during lunch today. I also did not write down my paints, so I'll get that formula tomorrow. I am super excited about that red-orange, though!

...and we're off! Have fun, everyone.
So, as I mentioned, I was given a pristine old Grenadier set of Champions supervillains for Christmas.
On the cover is a little splash logo: “FREE Starter Scenario Game Aid and Figure Accessories”
The “Starter Scenario Game Aid” is just a folded piece of paper with a hex map on one side and some suggestions on the other.
But the “Figure Accessories” are two actual, substantial molded pieces: a pair of rockets and what I think is a hover-scooter.
You can see them in the middle row on the far right, between two figures, here:
These two pieces are not pictured on the box art, nor are they listed in the set description.
They definitely go with the set. The box was sealed when I received it.
They are not mentioned nor shown on the Lost Minis Wiki page of the set:
Question: Should I document and upload pictures of these accessories to the wiki?
If my memory is working properly, I think this guy came out a blister pack marked Ral Partha Imports, so he may have originally been a citadel sculpt. In any case, he's older than at least some of you reading this. His paint got pretty badly dinged up in a move, so i decided to fix him up. Which led to a complete repaint. I hope you like him.
