So, the tracking for my very late Summer exchange figure says that it passed through Canadian customs two days ago. I figure it will be there Soon so it should be safe-ish to post a show-off thread for it. AS LONG A TRAXIA DOESN'T LOOK IF SHE HASN'T GOTTEN HER PACKAGE!!!! Anyway, as I said, this was horribly late. I (partly) blame the base. I had built this really neat base out of sculpty. But then, right when I was nearly finished with it and untested water effects product ruined it for me and I had to restart the base Lesson learned: always test new water effects on something I don't care about. Traxia requested something furry or a hero. To my mind Shoatima fills both those niches. She also requested a display base. I hope the one I ended with will suffice. It's not as spiffy as the one I had in my head to begin with, but, at least my water effects didn't eat this one Without further fussing: My goal was to have everything on her be made of "natural" materials. So, everything that would normally be metal is painted to be shell (because otters like shells) and her leather is painted to be sea leather (shark skin or some such). I finally figured out that the weird little round thing on her left next to the knife is meant to be a bottle, so I painted it as a gourd. And her pouch and blanket are just fun coloured cloth. I really hope that Traxia enjoys her and that she was worth the wait
So I'm painting up my little reward for helping my FLGS move. Everytime i see him, i'll remember those fun times helping them sort and shelve boardgames, card games, and my own personal project of arranging all the Reaper minis by number. [would you believe no one else wanted that job and they were happy to have a volunteer to do it?!] Anyway, he's been primed, dark washed, and dark lined. Sadly I won't be able to base him. At least not yet...i think he requires a 60mm to fit his whole tail in. He's a bit wobbly on his feet but I only have 2 SW 60mm and neither are suitable for him lol, so he'll have to wait planning on this river otter color scheme, with either red or green leather straps. Not sure yet And lookie what I ended up with! Echidnox will be making his way to me at a later date. Thank you awesome people that know who you are!!
