Has anyone seen a couple of secret Sophies? I had my wife post them early last week and they should have arrived at their location by now but I cant get the tracking numbers to cough up any information.   if anyone has seen a package from me recently, please let me know...

Package received (it apparently cane last week but I wasn't home.

 

I will post pics this week.  Question: did a wolf come loose or is there an extra wolf?

 

I like the mini diorama and I love the orc merchant gift.  He was one of the few pieces I don't have.

 

Many thanks to the evil halfling!

 

There was an extra wolf.  I painted them first, but then I couldn't get two wolves to fit well in the space, so I sculpted a Christmas tree instead.

ok, I'm almost done.  I was hoping to get it out by tomorrow but I keep finding things to fix so I'll probably send it Monday.  Sorry to push the deadline, Secret Sophie!

The water effect ended up being a little bit more zealous than I intended, but I at least got to play with some basing and textures.

Yeahhh, I'm pushing the deadline too. Sorry about that...I've caught every cough, cold and stomach ache to go through my office. I hope to ship it out on Monday...but I'll keep the thread posted.

Well. I seem to have caught the flu. My mini will go out as soon as I'm over it. I don't want to handle the gift while sick, and end up passing on the sickness. I expect this to delay me no more than 1 week...

I just checked tracking on my package.  It is in the proper state and slated for delivery tomorrow.  Someone should get their post-holiday presents in the near future.

      The Mini I received tonight was from my Secret Sophie painting partner for 2017 JAY.  The subject matter was a surprise to me and I must say he is very cute!
       
      Although based on his facial expression he does not appreciate being called cute!
       
      Jay has delivered me an excellent bit of cheer to me this night, whose space suit matches the frigid weather we have been having!  It could have been made from ice!
       
      I present  8004 Mousling Space Commander on his ship defending it from space pirates/cats??

      (Notice the focus on that face  ... this is what i get for calling him cute)
       




       
      and a better view of those shoulder emblems

       
      you may have noticed (or maybe not) he is facing two different directions on the stand  ... That's because he came off in transit.. must have been some rough hyper space jumps!

       
      Much appreciated Jay and He is my first SPACE MARINE!

      So, I'm a part of a Bi-Monthly Twitter Secret Santa'like Exchange called #BoxofManyThings! I'm doing Miniatures for both of the organizers of it and this is one of them. The individual in question goes by the Handle, owlbare on twitter and uses a Purple Owlbear as his Avatar. So I chose to do up a Cute little Owlbear for him in his signature Colors. These are actually his photos since I forgot to take any! Anywho, hope you enjoy:)

      This was painted as my gift to @Talae for the Summer Exchange 2017.  The criteria of interest was steampunk or water, with a demonstration of NMM.  The Automaton fit the NMM criteria well, and is mostly steampunk, so I ran with in.
       
      The orange parts are supposed to be copper.   This is the first time I've tried a NMM copper and used a Scale75 NMM set.  Thoughts?
       
      Comments and Critiques welcome.

      Finally remembered to post these up.
      I got minibart's name for the Spring Exchange.  I'd been hoping to get him since he sent me an awesome fig last year.
      He was looking for something Victorian and/or Steampunk.  I went through a number of idea about what I wanted to do, wasted far too much time on elaborate plans, and finally settled on a slightly simpler plan, and still managed to be late sending it.....
       

       
      With the Lord and Dame I wanted to tie them together with some cross over of colour.  Hopefully that was somewhat successful.
       

       
      The Lord came out fiarly well, I though.  I'm not sure if what I was trying with the hat came across as well as it could of.
      I was really happy with the vest, though it may not show up well in the picture.  I used Ruby Red to highlight Gothic Crimson, which gave it a nice satiny shine.
      Apparently all my shots of his back are blurry, and he's on a different continent now.  But dark grey coat of light grey pants, not too exciting anyway. 
       

      The Dame is a lovely figure and a joy to paint.  I had a great time painting her, other that realizing that I'm missing at least one paint in each green triad I wanted to use....
       
      And whenever I paint anything that could be considered Steampunk-y I love to throw in a West Wind Infernium Hound.
