  1. Hmmm, I know that the archways (that came with the graveyard) were questioned in previous years and they were decided as a no but the Mystic Portal has a bit more happening. It would not be a diorama on its own but people have used the druid circle as the large model for dioramas before so the portal would probably be fine as long as you created a scene with it.
  2. For the diorama, as long as it has at least one large Reaper figure in it, then it is fine. You can convert and modify the figures. There are no rules about not having backgrounds in your pictures or even like the display bases with the painted background attached. So if you want to do that, go for it! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
  3. I love how you "aged" them, especially the yellowing of the bones in certain areas and the grass and moss.
  4. I really like the albino look! Great job!
  5. Wonderfully painted! How did the adventurers do against these guys?
  6. Fun! I hope you enjoy it and the forums here are great! It has been a tough year. I decided that I was going to make Secret Sophie a priority this year just because it has been so blah! Focusing on doing something nice for someone else plus giving me a kick in the behind to get up and do something! I got my assignment and I am really excited about it! Already planning what I want to paint and what gifts to include! Hope this helps you with your funk. I know just how you feel!
  7. I have received unpainted Reaper minis that fit into the theme of the D&D campaign I was running. That person also hand made some chariots and horses to go with the minis. (Egyptian theme). He painted 3 minis for me, sent me some plasticard in varying sizes and some chocolates. I have also received basing stuff (grass tufts, weathering pigments). I have sent minis that I painted based on their preferences and unpainted miniatures that I thought they might enjoy based on their preferences from their questionnaire. I include some little "Australian" things (keychains, pencils, or something and then some snacks). So yeah, in the couple times I have done Secret Sophie, both giving and receiving, it has been some unpainted minis, basing items, and snacks along with painted mini(s) if you signed up to do the painting part too.
  8. Should we maybe ask Jon if he thinks it is worth making a mention of in the News section of the forums or should we just roll with what we have?
  9. I am good with whatever but I do agree with Inarah. I feel like I "know" the people here on the forums. It is too bad that more people didn't sign up but in the end, everyone will have a partner.
  10. The Reaper forums is one of my favorite places on the internet! My painting has only benefitted from spending time here and talking to the other painters here. Hope you stick around and share your projects and join in the conversations!
  11. I'm in! Will send the questionnaire soon!
  12. It looks great! I really like the shading on the brown scales and the stonework is fantastic!
  13. They are awesome! I have started being stingy with mine since I didn't know if they would ever be available at retail. They are great for conversions or adding to bases or creating decorations to hang on the walls of taverns.
  14. Thank you! I took the NMM Bootcamp class for Reapercon Live. It was excellent! It is mostly lots and lots of blending and trying to get your lights and darks in the right places. Did I mention lots of blending? I still have a lot to learn but at least I feel like I have a bit of understanding of how to do it.
  15. Thank you! I take a ridiculous amount of photos using different backgrounds and lighting so I have a lot to choose from. Sometimes what looks good to the naked eye doesn't look good in photos. these pictures were taken with my phone set to HD and I used my painting lights aimed at the mini but covered them with paper towel to filter the light a bit. I really need a lightbox!
  16. This is the last mini I have completed this year. I started her during Reapercon Live and used her for several classes since I did not have the proper minis for those classes. I used her for Skin Deep with @Corporea and Buttery Blends and NMM Bootcamp with @Kuro Cleanbrush. If you ever get a chance to take classes with them either in person (I wish!) or online, do it!!! This is a super cute sculpt and is big enough to not feel overwhelmed with tons of tiny details. Way to go Bobby Jackson!
  17. I didn't realize it had been so long since I had posted a Show Off. I have painted this year. I will post some of the stuff I painted but not all at once. No need to overload everyone! I created this Beshaba rom the Ziba model. Beshaba is the big bad in my D&D campaign. I am not a good sculptor and had a heck of a time making antlers. They are not pretty but I did learn something - find a mini with antlers and cut them off and save myself a lot of stress! Haha! Anyway, here she is!
  18. You always do such great skin! Love the hair and the swords!
  19. I love him/her! I may borrow this color scheme when I paint mine!
  20. Oh yay! She and the bunny stayed on! I wasn't sure how things would hold up during shipping. You said you liked natural and woodland and druid type things so I tried to embody that in a little scene for you. Glad she has a happy new home!
