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.

Ill get tracking out shortly.  One of them has some assembly required to minimize damage in transit.

 

Everybody have a great first weekend of 2018 (followed unfortunately, by the first monday...)

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!

      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.
