The amount of detail on this Gnoll's face and figure is quite amazing.    also there is ORANGE so what else can I say but

 

PERFECT

@prophetic_joe   Sent me a wonderful box as part of the Secret Sophie exchange.

Here's the box of goodness complete with a bag of fresh air from somewhere else in the world. I fortified myself with a glass of eggnog before opening it:

It was filled with lovely unpainted miniatures:

Toshiro is going to need to visit his favorite sword repair man:

Who doesn't need a space heroine?

And a sniper. I'm playing a Victorian era sniper in a supers game so this guy will come in handy:

I might have to give him different glasses though. I don't think aviator shades were available in 1888.

 

Now for the big reveal!  The painted figure:

The fun  part was my game group just watched this movie the day before this arrived:

Nate did beautiful work!

Thanks so much! I hope you have a great 2019.

May thousands of cheering fans throw little pickles as you stand atop the temple pyramid erected in your honor.

I had a good paint session yesterday and one today.  The heavy lifting is done and all that's left is looking for touchups, sealing, and decorating the base.  SoonTM there will be a package in the mail.

I've been sick. I had this great plan to do a WIP but wimped out and have just been plugging along.  I have next weekend off, so I should be able to finish up then. Never fear my partner!  Mini will be done soon! 

 

Happy new year!

I'm glad everything arrived safely and I'm excited to see what you do with the minis. I also appreciate the Real Genius reference, one of my favorite movies.

I am still working on mine. The holidays were tough at work and sapped all my will to do anything when I got home. Should still be able to get it out before the deadline.

So I finally checked my mailbox, which I don't do nearly as often as I should, and there in the package locker was my Secret Sophie box from Buckyball - and it was absolutely perfect for me!  I got a metal version of the Pathfinder dragon (YAY!), a bag of teeny tiny (and I do mean teeny tiny!) dragons, all of which I will thoroughly enjoy painting; and a beautifully painted dragonborn mage.  I will take pictures and post them when it isn't 1:00 am and I am bleary-eyed from binge-watching Beowulf.

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Buckyball - you nailed it!  :-)

OK, here are the goodies from my Secret Sophie box.  That tiny dragon is the size of a grain of rice!

Pics! Google Drive decided it wanted to be a lil' elf so there aren't many pics.

 

First, pile of goodies!

Snacks! They may not last the night :B):

 

09694 Snowdrift White and 09693 Coal Black. I don't have either of these. Sweet! I've been wondering if I should get another black, this P3 Thamar Black I use is getting a little old.

 

Also 77608 Jaques the Fly (help meeeeeee :devil: ), 77134 Hajad the Pirate, and 77481 Gwyddis the Dwarven Valkyrie laying claim to my snacks.

No snacks for you ::P:

 

And the best part, painted d00ds!

89033 The Horned Hunter with his great rack, painted red like a big hoofed demon :devil: 

 

 07008 Luwin Phost, the Dungeon Dwellers Wizard resplendent in blue and an iridescent orb dangling from his staff. The iridescence doesn't show up in pics too well. Is quite pretty in person ::D:

 

Both beautifully painted with lots of detail :winkthumbs:

 

Thank you, @Jay ::D:

And finally in the mail.  I forgot to put in a note so my partner will just have to guess (or wait for my show-off thread).

Package went in the mail today!

 

My partner should see it Wednesday or Thursday.  Unfortunately I found the note that was supposed to go in it after the box left...

 

I'll post in show off a little later this week so you know who it's from.
