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.

Given the weather headed in this weekend,  I should be able to finish mine up so it can go in the mail on 1/2.

      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.
