So how is it I already have a box here when I haven't even had time to figure out what to order to send out for mine???

 

I almost don't want to open it yet....almost.....

save it for Christmas!    :rolleyes:

Couple of years ago, my Secret Sophie gift from Matbar came in while I was at work.  Awesome Wife wrapped it and put it under the Christmas tree.  I had to wait two weeks to open it!

Glad it arrived.  I needed to mail it early for personal reasons.  Figured you would rather have it now than in March. :) 

 

Wait until December, then you can open and share it when others get theirs.  It won't spoil.

Now is nice  

March would have been nice too, I've got a birthday then.  

I will attempt to wait until December, gently rattling the box every day (it has written on the side "Yes, it rattles") and pondering what could be causing that unique sound......::D:

Work is not cooperating.  Looks like I'm going to have to take my painting show on the road...  minis are selected and primed/linered.  First base idea is set up, second is percolating.  Need to figure out a large gate on a small space.  I'll get there, it's just a matter of dedication

Figure has been converted. Priming today. Painting to commence afterwards.

If I want to post a WIP thread on the mini, to get some feedback on certain parts, how would I do that given it should be a surprise? suggestions?

      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?

      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.

      This is the mini that I painted for Fanguad for the Spring Exchange. Got it out late due to life interfering and had to be satisfied with a more simple paint job then originally planned. Please excuse the photo quality, I had no time to get everything out to take proper ones.

      This is the model I received from @hiddenone32 as part of the Spring 2017 Exchange.  Here's some better pics that don;t include my grubby mitts
       
      Great piece.  Great paint job.  Thanks.
