2017 Secret Sophie / Winter Exchange

Recommended Posts

So I managed to hold off on opening mine until Christmas.

And I finally remembered to take a pic.

A couple of pieces to add to my desperately needed Sci-Fi terrain, a funky alien bug that looks like a good target for my IMEF troopers I'm painting, a few new types of basing materials, and the oh so awesome CAV deck that I've been wanting (I like cards....a bit).  Not pictured were some delicious chocolates that I made the mistake of sharing with my wife before determining just how yummy they were......:blink:

 

Thanks so much Inarah!!

@Cyradis sent me a wonderful package!

It was full of lovely minis, paint, and some figures:

best of all was this:

I've been playing in a GURPS super heroes game. My character is "Chu Toi".

Chu has intangibility and a 12 die lighting bolt attack.

I go intangible. Get behind a bad guy. BZZZT!

 

GM: "How many die are you going to use?"

ME: "ALL OF THEM."

GM: Grumble grumble grumble... get more henchmen...

 

What really drives my GM crazy is he's a martial artist with no martial art skills.

(I did buy a point of Karate to keep him happy)

 

Happy new year to all of you  :)

 

p.s. I did get my painted mini finished today. I will mail it out shortly.

I'm pleased with it and hope the recipient will like it too.

I am glad you like it, @Jay! The figure was fun to paint ^_^ I hope the chocolate is to your liking. It is a local company and I find it tasty. They put poetry on the inside of the wrappers!

For everyone who hasn't sent their package, we're down to two weeks left.  Please try really hard to mail off your packages by then, and make sure to drop your organizer a line if you'll be late.

Since I'm back in town I checked my mail for the first time since Christmas to find all sorts of goodies, one of which was a mini.  Thanks partner!

 

Now I just need to finish mine up...

Did the items contained in the letter make it through safely?  I posted a thread in Show Off of the finished mini.

I had to continue going through mail...  two Ranger flats are still flat.  No easily damaged items were discovered.

My package is in the mail!

or at least at the post office.  

 

The sculpting kinda slowed me  down. Now I cant remember if it got a last coat of sealer - the person who gets it should spray it again, just to be sure.

Received mine from @Clearman. I love it!

That dice bag is amazing for me, btw! I can't stand velvet like fabrics, so i can't use most dice bags! I love it!

 

I've also nearly bought the Giantesses a billion times! Thanks so much.

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!

      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!
