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?

As long as you don't say who it's for, it should be fine.  Even better, don't even mention that it's for Secret Sophie.

Or you can state at the start that it is for Secret Sophie and put the pictures under a spoiler tag. That way those that are participating know to avoid it if they want to be surprised and those that are not can click the spoiler to see the image and give feedback. There should be a few examples of this in the WIP area where others have posted theirs in the past.

UPDATE! Early prep is done. Best fit for mini is not a Reaper, though. So, will make Gift part be entirely Reaper Minis. Will also look for a small thing from reaper to go with it that I can paint up too.

After some hemming and hawing, I selected a mini and got it base-coated over the weekend.  Remember that everyone should post WIPs of their work by December 1st.

Dang it!  Why do I keep missing out on these?!  Is the next one in the spring?

 

The next one will probably start in early February.  You should be able to sign up for notifications on this thread if you want a reminder.

UPDATE! Plan is to get help at FLGS, Gatehouse Games, some time next week. Dropped a message to the owner earlier tonight and hoping for a response some time Saturday. Plan involves tool/s that I don't have at this time and hope I can borrow at Store. Owner is a long time painter of Miniatures so hoping he has the thing I need(Even though I'm not sure what it is I need yet). Wish me Luck!

Painting is complete, just need to seal and dress up the base, but I had an idea on an addition - so I have ordered another component. We will see if timing gets it here before 12/1!

      My exchange partner this year was Fealron and one of the ideas suggested was a new enemy or villain to throw against his players.  I had this guy on hand and wondered if a giant werewolf would fit the bill: 
       
      14030: Vasyl, Rageclaw Alpha 


       
      While I was painting that I came across these guys and they just begged to be henchmen: 
       

      The one in the middle I believe is an old Grenadier, the others are clix. 
       
      Meanwhile, back at the ranch I did a little digging and discovered that Fealron has a set of DwarvenForge, so I felt compelled to paint these as a gift.  It's all molded from Hirst Arts molds (except the barrel mimic).  I hope they provide hours of fun play.

      My partner this time around was Clearman.  He requested a heroic character painted heroically, and nothing says heroic quite like the word "Hellknight."  Of course, I haven't actually played the adventure(s) that Pathfinder Hellknights appear in so maybe they are cuddly people.  We'll say she just finished up a heroic day of undead slaying.
       
      Metals are TMM, which my camera hates, but I think I managed to get a few decent shots.  For something different I painted the base using pigments rather than hobby paints. I used the wet method of applying them and the color shift is huge, so I wasn't sure how they would come out until they dried.  Of course you can be intentionally sloppy because any pigments on the mini's boots just help "tie the figure to its base." I freehanded some wood grain onto the shaft of the weapon just to add some interest to the boring space.

      Any interest in a new round of trading cards? 
       
      What is an artist trading card (ATC)? 
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist_trading_cards
       
      Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5". Most swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card fits into a standard trading card sleeve.
       
      http://www.tinteddy.com/introduction-to-atcs-what-are-artist-trading-cards/
       
      If I can get 6 or more people I will set up a round of 1-1 trades for forum members. Post here or PM me if you'd like to participate.  I am thinking of an Oct 1 start date and Dec 1 due (in the mail) date.

      well, he finally made it out of the house!  My exchange is officially in the mail.
       
      My exchange partner had asked for something futuristic and something either goofy or scary, so of course I went with ludicrous.  What do you give the giant demonic poisonous spider that has it all?  high tech lasers and missile launchers!  I have been building and painting some of my eldar pieces and decided that they could use a mascot.
       
      As for things I haven't done in a while.  I have started to play with decals again as a way of adding some interest to my larger grav tanks and space ships so I thought I would add a few here for fun.
       
      The weapons pack is removable if my partner wants to use him as a basic giant spider (actually I got a few complaints from the arachnid union when we discussed permanent attachment...)  there are to pointy pins that attach the weapons pack to the back of the spider (bones material does have its uses.
       
      So here is the Mark I demonic assault spider.  I hope everyone enjoys him!
