  1. Arg! I want to do this so bad, but it's probably a bad idea. I've been so quite on the boards lately. Just too much on my plate. And I haven't painted in over a month!
  2. Yep! As Naponatom said, till I get the chance to correct them, they are scimitars! (Seriously, I hadn't even realized it until you mentioned it. Might be the lack of sleep over here. Or the amazing paint job. I'm gonna go with both.)
  3. Pictures! Life has decided that I am not allowed to sleep. But I finally got the chance to take pictures this weekend! I am absolutely in awe of the amazing paint jobs that Leapardpixie achieved, and the bases are just amazing as well! So, here is what I received: All together this includes 3 painted minis, a bones Fire Giant Queen, and a happy seppuku stamp. I cannot express how happy these make me. And here are pics of the individual pained minis. Thank you so much!
  4. I got mine in the other day! I haven't had time to photograph it, but let's just say I've been doing a happy dance. I'll try to post pictures this evening.
  5. Glad you got it wolfie! I suppose it's ok that you know it's me now. I didn't leave any decent hints or anything. Oops! Did I forget to add the split ring keychain to the chainmail tree? I have a sneaking suspicion that I did. I can send it to you if you still need it, just let me know.
  6. This is absolutely amazing Siri! Great job, and so many fun details. :)
  7. Thanks Siri! I really wanted to add more bits in the hoard, but time did not allow for that. I also used your blue dragon for inspiration on the wings, really great stuff you have there! Thanks for the reminder Ub3r! Hopefully I'll be able to find time to post up all the finished images in Show Off this weekend and enter it in the contest. I'm visiting family, so time (and internet) is at a premium right now. :) Not that I have a chance for anything but the door prize compared to some of the ones already up there! Still, it's fun to participate no matter what. :)
  8. Ok, it took way to long, but I've got some more work done! Goblins are still on the shelf (sadness) as christmas presents had to come first. I finished up Smaug, so here are some more works in progress. I don't have my paints nearby, but will mention paint colors as I remember them. After slinging down the base coats, I tackled the wings. I tried a few different techniques and color combos, but ended up with this ombre using the wet blending technique. The colors are crimson red, pheonix red, and fire red. I also lined the edge between the membrane and the scales with the crimson red.
  9. Mine will be sent tomorrow. Sadly there was no time for paint slinging before I left, so there will be mini nakedness. :( I'll toss in a few extra goodies though. :) This does mean that it is highly unlikely my partner will get theirs before Christmas. On a related note, if my secret santa has not sent theirs out yet: no worries! I'm visiting family till the 1st, so I won't even have the chance to get it till then anyways. Likewise, if it has been sent, I'll be able to pick it up when I'm back in town. :D And count me in for appreciating Dave's hard work!
  10. I'm still trying to figure out if I'll have time to paint mine before I have to head out of town for the holidays. :)
  11. I had a nightmare about Secret Sophie! Someone had posted my name and address here, asking if my RL persona was associated with my forum name and wanting to know if they could send something particular (I don't remember what it was). I was panicked and somehow managed to say that maybe they should pm the person they were wondering about instead of posting personal info like addresses on the boards, and wasn't the purpose of Secret Sophie to be Secret? The moral of the dream is - you guys are in my dreams! Scary times....
  12. It's absolutely amazing the things you don't notice until you're looking at a photograph!
  13. Agreed. I've gone through and given as much feedback as I can, but a few painters in this contest are far and away better painters than I am. Thankfully, Kuro and Dave are around to help keep me in line The amount of feedback requested also surprised me. I never paid much attention to it when I was going through other contests to see who wanted it, I was just having fun. This... this is in a category of itself. To be honest, I hadn't even though about feedback until you mentioned it here. I figured hey, you're writing it, so I might as well receive it and use it to improve my
  14. It looks great Foxfire! I think the gapping (fixed by greenstuff) is more noticeable than the color shift though. A quick blend there could make it look like the shift is intentional. :) Thanks for sharing, I love the switch up in color palette.
  15. The SD Card was found! Apparently it developed legs, walked out of the camera, into the bedroom, and hid itself in a back black shirt. That's the story and I'm sticking too it. That means more pictures! I'll start with the requested image of the base. As you can see, the on/off button is on the bottom, so I just drilled a hole. The hole really should have been bigger. This is what I get for doing a rush job on construction. I've been using one of my files to turn it on and off. Next time I'll make a larger hole that allows access to the battery as well, since the battery well i
