  1. So some times you just done get things finished with the deadline you have imposed on yourself and this elf was one of those self-imposed deadlines. I wanted to have her done by Christmas, but just got too busy with other miniatures and other things. I got this figure if I recall last Christmas when I won her with some others on a Reaper Christmas Giveaway on Twitch. Here she is: Always thought she was a cute little figure. The other ones I want but they haven't sold them for a few Christmasses now are the two elves, naughty and nice. But one of these d
  2. It has been a while since my last post, I'm am just struggling to find the free time to sit down and paint or build at the moment. Anyway, this week I got the opportunity to run some run some 'build along' model making workshops with the kids at the Youth Centre where I work, and we have been putting together little X-mas themed display pieces. It was actually pretty fun being able to share and introduce a new generation to the joys of my nerdy hobby. I was pretty pleased with how they turned out so I figured I would share. The base is just a piece of log, and the mo
  3. Pretty happy with this. It's the first metal anything that I've successfully painted so also pretty proud about that. Extremely happy with her face. Might go back and touch-up a few spots. C&C welcome.
  4. Decided to give the group dice trays this year for the holidays. I wanted to get this done before Saturday and I wanted to take a shot at getting at least a first one done tonight. So here is the prototype. The finished format will be actually glued down as well as nailed down. I was trying to decide if I like the nail on the top. On the prototype it let's me move things around but they will be optional on the final version.
  5. This year I'll be spending the week between Dec 25 and Jan 1 at home... like a lot of folks. I'm using the time to finish up a few figures languishing on my paint table and prepare for a clean(er) start in 2021. I'll get some photos up as I prep. Right now I am planning to finish: 1640 Cat dragon in tree 3893 Mal, catfolk warrior 3894 catfolk rogue 3977 Mercurix, winged cat 77576 female sphinx several Cats and Catacombs figures a trio of Alkemy Khaliman Republic figures some 3d printed tressym (winged cats) whatever else stri
  6. UPDATE 10/19: We are doing two rounds of sign ups. The assignments for the first round were sent out on 10/18. Any questionnaires received after that date will be part of the second round. The deadline for the second round will be 11/13. Updates to the rules due to this change are in green. Yes, it seems too early to start this but with how this year has gone I thought to give you guys as much time as I could. Also this will give you a slight chance to utilize Reaper's October specials and/or any specials they do next month. What is Secret Sophie, you ask?
  7. I just finished this little guy. He is a gift for my Mom. I'm pretty darn happy with this guy I used more paints than I previously expected to use. He was a really joy to paint. Let me know what you guys think!
  8. When I got my Secret Sophie assignment and saw that I got @Corporea to paint for, I knew almost instantly what I wanted to paint for her. She put that she likes anything adorable and cute plus I know she likes mouslings so I knew I had to paint one for her. As I was going through my stash I found that had the Santa one and knew it was perfect. I also knew I wanted to pair it with a Christmas tree but it took me a while to settle on how I wanted to do the tree. Mainly I was flipping back and forth between making or buying one. I ended up making one out of greenstuff and am really happy with ho
  9. The last ornament! This one a little more ambitious; a vignette showing perhaps an aspect of the Winter Solstice. The spirit of cold and death being checked. The days are getting longer again now. Here's the Ghost King, in shades of Ice Blue, Toxic Mist, Dark Sky, and Oozing Purple (w/Ushabti Bone). And our heavenly host!
  10. Another Christmas ornament made! The ice chunks are, of course, just styrofoam bits. The polar bear was a Schleich; a bit big even for a large bear, but fine for a celestial ursine. Here's the angel outside the ornament. The Enochian glyphs on her cape are intended to read "Stay Frosty."
  11. It got late, so change of plans and here he is: Painted in 1 evening, using only 4 colors. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. Colors: Splintered bone, Turkey Brown, Nightsky Blue and Blackened Brown. I was just going to use the first 3, but decided I needed something darker to finish it up.
  12. Even with last month's minis still grumbling on the table, like a Lovecraftian protagonist I shamble onward further...for All Months Are One in Yog-Sothoth! IA! IA!...sorry about that...anyhow here are the upcoming victims.... Santa Mousling and Helper, who are mostly done thankfully. Two Mariel Twinspars. They will be the 3rd and 4th time painting her, and are intended as gifts for the long suffering waitresses who put up with me each Weds. These having an actual time limit, will be started later today. Two Shrines, an Obelisk, and an Eldritch Demon. Only 3 terra
  13. My first time entering any sort of competition. So here it is! My version of the Yeti Cheiftan 77434 for LadyStorm's contest. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/82989-ladystorms-winter-contest-yeti/
  14. I finally got around to decorating the mantle this year. Nothing's newly painted, just gathered together for once.
  15. Because it’s never too early for Christmas themed kickstarters... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1398817948/geek-and-dice-themed-stockings-delivered-before-ch Although I must admit I prefer the term “nerd” over “geek”.
  16. I actually bought 01589: Father Christmas two years ago, but I hadn't thought to slap paint on him until now. As I'm done teaching this semester, I had time to prime and paint this guy earlier this afternoon. Took me maybe three hours, which has gotta be some kind of personal best. I did chicken out on his eyes though. My brushes aren't super great and I didn't trust myself not to screw up the eyes/his face, so I didn't try them.
  17. I took out the BBQ and some stuff I bought. Used styrofoam for the base and a Styrofoam Ball ( half of it). Applied some snow an grass flock, glued some trees and figurines in place and done. The houses will light up at night and I added a string of Led lights. Put it in the garden in front of our window/door. So in the evening we can see it from our room. Just a silly idea, maybe you guys like it, because you know...most of you are silly too...
  18. Even though I got these during last year's 12 Days of Reaper, I only just got around to painting them! I tried an experiment with these; painting them first with special Chrome spray paint, and then using Citadel gemstone transparent paints on them: Spiritstone Red, Soulstone Blue, and Waystone Green, in an attempt to given them that lacquered mirror look that real ornaments have. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. In the second photo, they are shown with Copplestone's "Lovely Assistant" to give a sense of scale with a normal sized human figure.
  19. I've been meaning to make a show-off thread for this for a while, but the pictures aren't great and I no longer have the mini because she was a Secret Sophie gift to Inarah last year. Lots of things I'd like to have spent more time on, like the stray red brush stroke I noticed after I'd sent her off. Part of the point of an exchange is that there's a deadline, so that's just the way the cookies crumble. Figured people would really want to be able to see what the back side of the mini looks like now that she's available in the store again. Merry Christmas!
  20. This is from the latest Randomness thread (I can’t seem to quote directly into a “Create New Topic” page): Notes are cribbed from Wikipedia and other places because I am not an expert on this music. I just enjoy it. I expect to add more songs later. Here’s one of my favorites first. Ríu Ríu Chíu (Spanish, 16th century) Notes (cribbed from online sources): This is a Spanish villancico (a type of song popular between the 15th and 18th centuries) attributed to Mateo Flecha the Elder (d. 1553). It is known
  21. I got the Reindeer during last year's 12 Days of Reaper and I looked in the Special Edition figure listing and couldn't find it listed, so don't have a stock number. I recently finished it after several months of sitting on my painting table, half finished. I also painted up the Copplestone Lovely Assistant figure this past week, as I've started queuing up some of my Christmas themed figures for some seasonal painting projects the next couple months.
  22. So as some of you may know I'm making a diorama! This will be slow going for a while as I get the materials and then it should be full steam ahead. I've started by procuring another copy of the "telephone box" since I don't really like the first one I did a few years ago. It's not awful but not up to my standard for a Christmas present.
  23. So, I've had this figure for a while and finally worked up the courage to paint it. I stated in mid-December and finished jsut after Christmas. Not in time to hang it from the tree, but it will be there next year. I wrote the names of of the family (including the rabbits), bu some of the names were too long, so I tried to give the impression that the list was folded over with the letter continuing on the backside.
  24. All these Zombies I've been working on lately have got me wanting to get to started something a little less speed painterly. So I decided to pick up my Christmas Elves from my reaper order over Christmas and get working on them. I got into the grove painting up the naughty elf so all I have is where she stands now. I liked how she was painted up in the store so I used that as my start. Here is how she looks at the start of the WIP: And of course here is the nice one patiently waiting in primer to be started:
  25. I had planned to do a bunch of mouselings in november and december.. but work got in the way. I never had a more busy and stressfull december than this year. But in the end I managed to finish two sets... just to late to hang in the Christmas tree.. 😊
