  1. Okay so... Spoilers and such if you don't want to know don't look you may get spoiled. Alright then, so I decided to do pirates. It fell into what my partner wanted and why not? Here''s a picture of when I started I went with Bergo Ironbelly; because why not? He wasn't your typical pirate, it'd be fun. Then I decided he was a rather small figure, so why not pickup a partner in piracy for him? Now when removing Bergo from his base I had a mishap involving his ankle. It broke.... When getting basecoats down I tried to fix it with superglue, green stuff, etc. *Sig
  2. This is my current project for my Secret Sophie exchange. If you don't want to spoil the surprise then do not open the spoiler! But if you do and want to comment please feel free, as any advice to make it better will be appreciated. PLEASE DO NOT quote this post and remove the spoiler tags... that would ruin the surprise... thanks
  3. I managed to get my winter exchange piece and gifts to vegascat in time for Christmas. Since he sent me a heartfelt thank you directly and I know she made it I wanted to post up some of the photos I took before mailing her off. I will let vegascat share photos of the gifts if he chooses and just post the painted miniature. I had alot of fun painting her up and quite enjoyed keeping her to a limited palette. I am happy he likes her and that she made it safely during a busy mail time. Here she is on her scenic base alongside the Golem Familiar from 02826. And I wanted to keep her
  4. I've been sculpting a thing. The original WIP thread can be found here. I've been making progress, but really need some feedback in case I'm doing something really wrong. Here is the latest: Comments, critiques very welcome. This is my first sculpt ever.
  5. In the category of "Better late than never", here are a couple of pictures of the miniature I painted for the Winter Secret Sophie exchange. Since I was running late, I only snapped a few pictures before boxing her and shipping her off to Jasper the 2nd. He may be able to supply a few more shots of the details. (There are also a few WIP pictures on my blog here: http://blindmetalminis.blogspot.com/2016/02/enough-terrain-paint-figure.html) Jasper specifically asked for examples of NMM, and female skin tones, so I tried to pick a mini that offered lots of opportunities for both. I
  6. Welcome everyone, to the 2015 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 November 1st to November 10, with the assignments going out around the 15th. If you'
  7. This is the figure I painted for Traxia as part of my Secret Sophie gift. I did some minor modification by adding one of the Bones familiars to her shoulder.
  8. For Secret Sophie this year I got Klarg1 and he was looking for something Sci-Fi. I'd had an IMEF Bulldog that I'd been eager to paint since it first came out (Big Stompy Robots!!) but never gotten to. So I ordered myself another one and started in on it. I decided early on to go with battle damaged, so I could use both the pilot and the hatch, and so I could try out painting some damage. Then after Christmas I needed something to paint at work (and had just received a bunch of new military triads from the 12 days of Reaper) so I grabbed a couple of IMEF troopers t
  9. I finally got my light box put back up. Here are the photos I took of the awesome 2002 Christmas Sophie that Miss Melons sent me for Secret Sophie:
  10. This is the miniature I painted for SGHawkins09 for the Secret Sophie '15 Miniature Exchange. She requested Christmas colors, so I obliged. Conveniently, the same colors as my Koldun Lord. I gave her a decorative base, which started out with some bark someone gave me at ReaperCon, but I think my attempts to put snow and gravel on it made it worse than just the bark painted up as rocks. Not my best face (and of course the super-closeup makes it look worse)... all my army painting recently made it a bit difficult to get back into the groove of painting as nicely as possible.
  11. These are some pictures of a Yeti/sasquatch/bigfoot/abonimable snowman that I painted for SamuraiJack in the 2015 Secret Sophie Winter Exchange. I'm very proud of how he turned out. And, though you can't see it, both his eyes are looking in the same direction (!) which absolutely thrilled me. Looking at it now, I could have pushed the contrast on the fur even further, but I was happy with how he looked and decided that he was a perfectly recognizable sasquatch. So there he is! Hope you like the paint.
  12. This year I got Leopardpixie as my Secret Sophie partner and part of what she put down for inspiration was high fantasy with vibrant colors. I had just seen Nyrissa the dryad queen in the Reaper store and thought that she would be perfect. I really wanted to play with color so I went with bright green and purple. In all, I am very happy with how it turned out.
  13. This was the mini I painted for Siri, 02835: Jolie, Female Scribe. Also added to the vignette was the Imp w/Book from Familiars II (14087), the Crystal from Kal'Valanis, Lich Queen (03187), and a couple of books I had in my bits box. The vignette is on a (Foundations 2 sample) 50mm flagstone base from Forge Prints. I don't have the part numbers for the Reaper parts, since the Boneyard is down right now. In her request, Siri stated that she liked purple, so purple she got: As always, c & c welcome. EDIT: Apparently, I like to take pictures before I finish th
  14. The survey mentioned unicorns or winged beasts, nothing boring or pink. I had done winged creatures for my last 2 exchanges ... I thought unicorns need to come in more colors than just white (good) and black (evil) how about bay? and what if I included a woman with the same hair and skin colors? I originally planned for the three on a single base, but I couldn't make the positioning work. Instead the unicorns and warrior got their own bases, but using the same technique, so they could all be occupying a single meadow. I am pretty sure I went back and fixed the paint chipping
  15. So here is the Peryton that I painted for Inarah's Secret Sophie: Lots of pics, so Many Thanks to Ub3r_N3rd, Vegascat, and Xherman for acing as my sounding boards during my WIP! Comments welcome! (If anyone would like, I took lots of pics, and could do a retroactive WiP.... Most copied from pms!) George I must say that I was not very happy when the mini arrived, as the way it's left leg is up, and it is balancing on it's right leg looks kind of awkward to me. The way the head is tilted seems odd as well.... The wings fit to the body quite well, with very minimal
  16. Base Coats: Golem: VMC Brown Rose Wolf: 9163 Dark elf shadow
  17. Welcome, everyone, to the 2014 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 some holiday cheer to each other. Signups will run from November 16th to November 24, with the assignments going out no later than November 27th. This is a tight schedule, but that's okay, because you don't have to paint anything if you don't want to! If you've never done an exc
  18. Happy New Year Reaper Forum! This is the figure I painted up for the 2014 Secret Sophie exchange and sent to Fanguad. I actually hadn't ever seen this particular sculpt before I started browsing his wish list, but it's a very nice sculpe. One of these days, I need to paint up another one for myself. I can't say that I did anything super new or original, but it's a fun piece, and it lends itself to a lot of different techniques. I hope you enjoy it, Fanguad!
  19. So, it's that time of year again. Instead of running another painting exchange at the moment (which would run into next year), I've decided to do a Secret Sophie (secret-santa-style exchange) again. Here's the rules (shamelessly stolen from last year's exchange by MS): Alright, down to brass tacks. If you want to participate DO NOT post here saying you're in. You can post here with questions, with comments, or suggestions, but I think it will make it even more secret and fun if no one knows who else is in on this. Rules! 1. PM me with the answer to my short list of questions (See Belo
  20. DHL Rumscratch, Dwarven Wereshark Secret Sophie Present for MatrissaTheEnchantress When I first found and started Rumscratch I was kind of stoked to work on him. I used y usual shale basing and went with coral colors. I got off to a great start getting the base colors on Rumscratch himself but I really was having trouble getting his shark coloring to work so I set him aside for a bit. When I got some feedback regarding the items Matrissa wanted I thought, Rumscratch. I am glad MatrissaTheEnchantress enjoyed her Secret Sophie present and she can use him as a c
  21. Bones Owlbear Secret Sophie Present for Kay13 Special thanks to those who mentioned using straight pins to adjust drooping Bones minis, including MiniCannuck. I shoved a pin up the Owlbear's single leg touching the ground to get it to stand upright. Here are the photos: And here's a closeup of the base: First I cut off the front of the integral base and trimmed it to better sit in the round base. Then I smooshed some of the MagicSculpt that came with my Happy Seppuku stamps. Once I had that level with the remaining integral base of the owlbear,
  22. So here are the final official shots of my Secret Sophie 2012 project. I really hope my Secret Sophie pal likes the work I invested in this wizard. I received a lot of encouragement over in my WIP, so I'm hoping that the final product is something that they enjoy. I'd love to see this guy as either a tortured hero in someone's DnD game, or even a villain who once stood on the side of good. A huge thank you to everyone for their feedback and to MonkeySloth and chaosscorpion for the birch seed leaves which adorn the base. I actually 'signed' this one since he's headed out the door.
