2017 Secret Sophie / Winter Exchange

Recommended Posts

I mailed off my package today (and just realized I forgot to include the "gift" portion).  So the painted portion, at least, should arrive Tuesday or Wednesday next week.

UPDATE! Mini #1 is done! Going to try to make a Mini #2 for my Partner! Also, will be trying NMM for the first #@##$%ing Time! I just LOVE having Bipolar. It means Sleep is a thing of the past until it isn't! :P Well, at least I'm getting something useful done. Also, did my Gift exchange with some of my f2f Gaming group and got a freestanding magnefying glass with light from one of them! Tested it out today and it takes some getting used to but looks like it will helpful!

The hard part is letting go.  I actually ordered some scenery parts at the last minute and I am beginning to think my hindbrain is trying to stall...  It will go out next week though.  I just saw an ad for some watch gears and pieces that would go perfectly and I had to have them for the project

I made some pretty significant progress towards getting my painted gift finished last night. I'm hoping to have the package on it's way by the end of the year.

I have a few days off this week so The PlanTM is to get all the painting done by the weekend.  Also I'll be out of town after Christmas, so if everything isn't done by the weekend it won't be done until next year.

 

I got in a couple of good painting sessions and the mini is done... except for the hand & weapon I left off cause I thought it would be in the way.  Oopsie.  Well it's at least primed now and should be quick to paint.

Second half of my Secret Sophie is out.

 

Now that a lot more packages are going out, please post pictures of what you received!  We all want to share in the joy of miniatures.

Chocolate, chocolate, butter cookies, Lady Devonna, chocolate, chocolate, Bourbon St Sophie,  chocolate, and chocolate filler so the chocolate doesn't get banged around.  :wub:

 

There was no note, so I don't know which forum member to address, but Thank You!  God bless you, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

Glad you liked it.  I was rushing to get it sealed and out the door and only noticed the note sitting on my desk after I got back from the post office.

My package from Wyvernfire last week, but due to much holiday traveling I am only now posting.  Many thanks for the amazing goodies!  A hand drawn card, a super cute tiny painted dragon, (unpainted) a wraith and guardian  beast - right up my alley for what I like to paint, new basing materials (of a a kind I didn't have at all) are always welcome, and then delicious teas and some maple candies.  Thank you so much.

 

Here's hoping the attachments don't give me pain :-)

okay the gift mini is done. 

I realized yesterday that the ears are wrong and really should be cut off and moved to show a different expression. 

- maybe next time.

I just need to fill out the rest of the box.  Throwing in reaper swag is easy, candy and gifts are harder.

      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!
