Reapercon 2017 Sophie is now in the online store.

I see that, but I'm hoping to get her with a swagbag.

So I have very carefully looked over the Reaper Website and gleaned the following information:

ReaperCon 2017 Sophie is listed as catalog #01613 at $17.99 - available to order now.  I have one sitting in my cart.

ReaperCon VIP  Werewolf is in the preview area #01618 for October release.

ReaperCon Hall of Fame Screcrow is in the preview area #01617 for October release.

Mina Splinterheart is in the preview area #03845 for November release.

 

I also saw in preview a set of Christmas Colors slated for December release.  And a bunch of other cool goodies.

The Christmas colors were available last December. I jumped on them. Some of the colors are pretty banging, but I'm not sure they will be offered this year. Would be great for the people that missed them. I'm actually hoping to see a couple of other hard to get colors offered this Christmas. Either way, Reaper always has something I can't live without every December during the 12 Days of Reaper. :devil:

For those who are unfamiliar, The 12 Days of Reaper is a December promotion where a different free mini is included in qualifying orders on each of the 12 days.

Limited edition holiday themed minis are also available to order.

Plus the Anniversary mini of the month promo will still be on offer.

 

So as soon as you spend your pennies on the Reapercon minis, the new October releases, and then the new November releases, you'd better start saving more pennies for the 12 Days promo.

I'm a little bit miffed that Sophie is the only Con mini going on sale this weekend. Can't really justify putting together an order for her and then another one later for the faction minis :down:

...any bets on whether the 12 days will be the 11 preceding month's anniversary minis, with day 12 being something holiday-themed?

I, too, am waiting with bated breath in hopes of getting a swag bag so that I can get the paints and a con mini. I also liked some of the extra non-Reaper goodies that came in the one from last year. Like the little terrain pieces I got, the Aliens-style space marine mini from somewhere that I can't remember because I promptly lost it, the Badger Stynlrez primer, and the bits of string from Bobe's Hobby House  to use for mini bows.

I also want to acquire the Mouselings, since my wife loves them and I think I have virtually every one that's been produced so far.  Haven't seen anything about them being available outside the swag bags. ::(:

You know, it strikes me that Reaper could solve some of this by having pre-ordered "Non attendee" Swag bags.  It might not have all the freebies from the outside companies, but it would allow them to know ahead of time how many bags/pens/figures they need to make to cover the 'outside' demand.  I've made it to ReaperCon once, and I've been trying to get back ever since, but life keeps making other plans for me.  Getting a Swag Bag is my vicarious attendance experience.  :blink:  I know it's their Con, and they're crazy busy dealing with everything, but I have to say this years arrangement is really stressful for those who want to score the only piece of RepaerCon they can get.  I hope that makes sense, and doesn't sound too whiny. <_<

yeah! Sophie's up. 

@aku-chan - Remember that there will be a new exclusive mini for November, which very well could make you want to place another order in 2-3 weeks anyway.  I think I've placed 6 orders so far this year, where I normally only place 2-3.

Totally agree.

There seem to be a lot of people on the Forums who, for reasons of job, health, family obligations, finances, etc. just can't make the treck to Texas right now.

Having that little piece of "The Holy Grail/Pilgrimage to Mecca" made available to forumites just makes for a tighter community and seems to me that it would be a way to generate tons of good will and word of mouth for Reaper.

Sadly, the need to place a £60 order for free shipping (plus the inevitable £20+ Customs charge) makes ordering from Reaper too expensive to do too often.

 

Fortunately, the faction minis aren't limited so I can pick up this years when I order next years ::):

 

I was just really looking forward to painting that pirate lady.

      So, I'm working on the Reapercon 2017 Sophie. I want to paint her to competition level, or at least to the best of my ability. I've already decided several things about her color scheme. 
       
      Her dragon mate is going to be a gold dragon. This is to emphasize my primary choice for her wings and clothes, purple. Her skin is going to be utilizing the golden skin triad. The ground is going to be a red brick, going with the brick carved for it. 
       
      So, here's this far. At this point, I'm blocking in primary colors for the base, since Sophie blocks several parts of the base once she's added.
       

       
      Advice as I go along would be appreciated. I'm going to try to update this with each step. Colors used:
      -09074 Palomino Gold to basecoat the dragon
      -09401 Dragon Red to basecoat the ground

      So, being bored I went through and sorted out my Sophie collection...
       
       
      I know there's an 'alternate' version of the 1408, and I also skipped Bones. this is metal only. 
      And of course, it also skips the 12" Resin version used as an award in the Reaper Masters painting competition. 
       
      Did I leave any out?
      (Not asking if I OWN all yet. I'm still looking for one or two in the list)

      As my second mini I started the Masterbox World of Fantasy Lizard Mount/Sci-Fi girl combo (previous WIP post) but when I saw pictures of this mini online I just had to get one and drop everything else.
      Played Tomb Raider from the first one so this one pushes my buttons. Found one for sale and snapped it up. Assembly is finished. I didn't like the look of the Whip, so I replaced it with some braided wire.
      The Base I will expand to add a pit full of spikes. Can't wait to start priming/painting!

      So - my next small project - I cannot keep with just one ... errrr.
       
      After having a small but nice talk with @SGHawkins09 and being sent home by the doc to cure a sickness I recently picked up, I had to decide what to do next.
       
      As all those wonderful and enthusiatic responses to my previous projects (I mean it - I never had so much response in such a short time) made it near to impossible to just sign off from the forums and disappear into the wilderness, I agreed to take on a different plan.
       
      I just grabbed into my miniature box and took some figures to paint them and get them done. And then it struck me: I am at the Reaper Forums yet I missed to paint a Reaper miniature.
       
      So I picked out ... errr - let me see ... Troll Slayer Sophie! Yay! - hey! Hooooraaay! Who the heck is Troll Slayer Sophie and when did I buy her?
       
      It seems I already started to paint her, but then decided otherwise, stripped *chuckles* her and put her away. Hm. Good point to start her all over again.
       

       

       
      As I chose her to be the figure I wanted to paint next I had to think about the color scheme I wanted to use.
       
      Well. I had no idea. I never really cared about fantasy style, so it never meant anything to me. The things I know about are modern or sci fi. I played a lot of Warhammer40k back in the days. I even wrote fanfiction stories which included the Imperial Guard and the Sisters of Battle ...
       
      ... Sisters of Battle ...
       

       
      hm. that could make a great colour scheme. Works well with the flesh tones and still contrasts it. And as Sophie is a demon, the demon/witch hunter theme fits her rather perfectly.
       
      I'll take it!
       
       
       
      Well then - primed her and started painting.
       

       

       
      But I am not sure - do I want to give her skin the grim dark appearance of an Adepta or a more Succubi-like appearance like ... this one:
       
      Succubus
       
       
      Suggestions?

      The last of my July paint binge is Sophie.
