  1. My Secret Sophie arrived at its destination i can share with everyone. My recipient wanted something cute. I thought it would be cute to have a man feeding his pet. Just because his pet happens to be a rust weevil should not be held against him. I saw the barbarian and it looked like he was throwing the swords rather than. Actually using them to hit anything. I also had a spare rust weevil and the whole thing just came together. Roger got the old swords out of the box from his adventuring days. It had been a while since he'd been out to the dungeons but at the rat
  2. The battle against the forces of evil takes place on many levels. Sometimes it's a clash of mighty armies, whilst other times terrifying behemoths clash in the sky, terrifying the populace for miles around. Others.....well, they're far more personal. This was my contribution to this years Secret Sophie gift exchange. It portrays the winner of a long, hard won battle between evenly matched opponents and I suspect the only thing keeping that little dragon up is pride and a good dose of adrenaline This was a number of fir
  3. My secret Sophie is winging its way to its recipient as I write this and may even arrive before the new year! I have been practicing a technique shown to me by @Mocha and have produced. Number of these this year so its only fitting that my SS be one of them. The present is actually a 6 sided die from dice jail for too many 1's so for its trouble it has been incarcerated in greenstuff wrapping paper! I modified Rocky a little bit to flatten his wings to more of a waiting position. As for the story, Rocky has been asked to wait for his present an
  4. What is Secret Sophie, you ask? Well, it's a lot like Secret Santa, with a more attractive (albeit more dangerous) delivery person! (For those not in the know, Sophie the Succubus is Reaper's mascot.) This is the time of year for Reaper forumites to give a little holiday cheer to each other. Unlike most of the exchanges we do on the forums, this will have two categories - miniature and gift exchange and gift-only exchange. Signups will run from October 23rd to November 3rd, with the assignments going out by November 10th. If you've never done
  5. I took these pictures during the WIP phase of my gift for Fealron.
  6. This was one of two figures I painted for @Fealron for the Secret Sophie this year. His ideas were Metal, minimal basing for gaming use, a woodland creature, usually considered good but turned to evil, and a minion of a necromancer. After thinking a while, I decided I could knock out all his ideas with some evil unicorns. Here is the second. Maybe once the prior unicorn charmed by a necromancer does, he raised it as a skeleton, and put another minion on top. Here are the WIP shots: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/90618-02631-s
  7. This was one of two figures I painted for @Fealron for the Secret Sophie this year. His ideas were Metal, minimal basing for gaming use, a woodland creature, usually considered good but turned to evil, and a minion of a necromancer. After thinking a while, I decided I could knock out all his ideas with some evil unicorns. Here is the first. I envisioned a unicorn charmed by a necromancer that tramples a virgin, staining it black. That taint would spread from the hooves, causing a grayscale, with only a few remnants of white/color where the corruption is st
  8. Here is the finished figure I painted up for my Secret Sophie.
  9. This little lady I chose to paint for my Secret Sophie. Now that @Darcstaar has received my gift, I can now show her off. Skin tone – Dark Skin Triad Hair – Blonde Hair Triad Hair Bands – 09698 Retro Frost Satin Blades and shoulder pauldrons – Base of Tempest blue, silver toned metals triad with a stone wash. Breast pieces – Redstone base, Rose Gold, Red shadow wash, Highlight- Rose Gold, New Gold Sword Cross Guards
  10. I painted this one in Fall/Winter for @Jay for the 2017 Secret Santa. He said he was playing a martial artist in a tabletop campaign, so I gave him "Bruce Lee". Bruce Lee has some classic yellow and black pants, so I changed the black for red for flair. To avoid ketchup-and-mustard (and the original pants color is Mustard Yellow), I popped some doodles onto the belt. I did intense shading on the skin to make it clear that the dude is made of muscles. The yellow is shaded with Arbuckles Brown from Scale 75, which is pretty much a brown-purple, through Reaper Mustard Yellow, to Scale 75 Hykey Ye
  11. So, I got SGHawkins for my Secret Sophie. She said she would be starting Curse of Strahd soon, so I made Strahd... Happy Vampire is Happy! Also, i did a couple "Spell Effects" like this Dancing Magma Sword! And a pair of the new WizKids unpainted minis. I chose the Dragonborn female Fighters set because Dragonborn are hard to find equivilents for outside the official minis and I wanted to try out painting a few of them for future referance. I really like the effect I made with the first's Fire Sword. The mini's Fire s
  12. I put together this little diorama for Vegascat for the Secret Sophie this year. He had expressed an interest in fantasy or steampunk and I wanted to give him something that would work for either. The concept is a whos hunting who in a dark hall or around a building corner. I left the figures attached with wax instead of gluing them down incase Vegascat wanted to use them in a campaign I am afraid that recently my skills have fallen off some and it has been a really busy year. I did find a few spots in the pictures that needed touchup and got them before I sent them out but its
  13. This is my painted mini for Wyvernfire's Secret Sophie. The request was to try something new and since I hadn't done much in serious modding lately or in the world of steampunk so after listening to a bit too much Abney Park I decided to try to model a steampunk automaton at the moment of epiphany when it realizes that it must leave its birthplace or risk dying before it ever lived. I started with 77514 because I liked the looks of the head and body. I then chopped pretty much everything else off to change its positioning, bringing it from a very static pose to what I hope is a k
  14. This was the Secret Sophie mini I painted for Auberon this year. One of the "inspiration" pictures he sent me was described as "not technically a chainmail bikini." So I just decided to go with an unabashed chainmail bikini. I experimented a bit and used NMM on the armor and blades. I'm happy with the placement on the gold, but I think it needs more contrast. I'm happy with the contrast on the steel, but the placement is definitely wrong somehow. Comments on how to improve this are welcome.
  15. You've been warned. Don't look if you don't want to know what can go in a Secret Sophie box. I didn't realize flesh could have so many colors - but I've used a lot of bottles and spontaneous mixes so far.
  16. WARNING! HERE THERE BE SECRET SOPHIE SPOILERS! YE HAVE BEEN WARNED!! Please excuse the crappy phone pictures. It was all I had at the time. I now have access to my mother's camera (my digital is broken) but there are delays getting pictures from it to the computer. Note: Some of the images are sideways, but if you right click and open in a new tab, they show correctly. Don't know why this is happening... So here it is, the WIP of my Secret Sophie. It is taking me a while, but that's because I'm putting a lot of work into it. There are a lot of pictures included as I've been taking them a
  17. Hey friends! I apologize for just now getting around to the post, but I'd love to show off the Secret Sophie I received from SGHawkins09!! She's a gorgeous little elf painted like a Sylvari from Guild Wars 2! She's even pointing at a tiny little bird in a tree. She also came with lots of little goodies, like a dragon ornament and a paint splatter sketchbook!! It was all an awesome surprise. Thank you, SGHawkins09!!
  18. Welcome everyone, to the 2016 Secret Sophie thread! What is Secret Sophie, you ask? Well, it's a lot like Secret Santa, with a more attractive (albeit more dangerous) delivery person! (For those not in the know, Sophie the Succubus is Reaper's mascot.) This is the time of year for Reaper forumites to give a little holiday cheer to each other. Unlike most of the exchanges we do on the forums, this will have two categories - miniature and gift exchange and gift-only exchange. Signups will run from October 1st to October 10, with the assignments going out around the 15th. If you've never
  19. My Secret Sophie recipient was Fanguad. He's a GM, so I went looking for some interesting NPCs. Ordered a few and this guy told me he wanted to be painted. Considering how many blades he has, I thought I should oblige him. He was fun to paint (once I figured out I was using the wrong red and started the reds over). Its interesting using that few colours on a fig, since I'm usually more of a "he's got 4 pouches on his belt, I need 4 different leathers" kind of guy. I had a spare set of Halfsies dice (I ordered a LOT with that kickstarter....) that matched his colours pretty well
  20. So, I cannot hold it in anymore. I must Share the results of my hard work before I explode or something. If you have NOT gotten a Secret Sophie Package Proceed at your own risk!!!!! -------------------------- -------------- So first off the piece of Cork on her behind was removed as soon as I saw that it was there in the Pictures. So, I painted up Yephima the Giantess as a Fire Giantess. My Partner for this Exchange Was . They did not have a lot of preferances as far as requests. just s
  21. Finally getting around to posting a couple of pics from the winter exchange. I snapped these right before I boxed it up and sent it out to Kangaroorex. I hope he enjoyed it. This was my first exchange project. It was also my first completed attempt at doing basing for a mini. I just did something fairly basic and I think it turned out okay.
  22. This is what I painted for Teskeria for the 2016 Secret Sophie exchange. She said she liked dragons and the colors purple and pink. I started with the green dragon hatchling, I wanted one that looked like it was attempting to fly, and this one seemed to be sitting up and paying attention. I built up a little cork hill for Cassie to be standing on, demonstrating with her staff and her arms thrust wide. The base has little hillocks covered in static grass. The bushes and flowers are real dried miniature plants that I pulled out of my dollhouse supplies. Both figures are removable for play.
  23. Working on secret sophie gift #2.. thought I'd try out the new light box a bit too..
  24. This is my Secret Sophie to Klarg1. He asked for some monsters he could use in his campaigns. I thought it would be neat if he could have something for land and sea so an antkeg and a Hippocampus was selected. unfortunately the Hippocampus would not cooperate and come off its working plinth so it is a little more of a showpiece than playing piece. I hope he doesn't mind. For me at least, the hippocampus has to have one of the most challenging textures to work with, both in finding a way to give it life and just being hard on the brush. I know I killed at least one brush on the sharp e
