2014 Reapercon Sophie


Recommended Posts

Awesome design!  This looks like it'd be perfect for Deadlands.  

 

Also, I don't know, but I do think this sculpt actually looks a bit closer to the concept art than the typical Sophie art-to-figure transition.  I'll be interested in seeing how this paints up.

I think most of the convention Sophies hit the artwork pretty much dead on. Last year's Sophie didn't because the artwork came after the sculpt was already done and the sculptor only had a vague she should look like this reference to go on. But overall I think they hit the nail on the head just about every time.

She's a really cool figure, but isn't Sophie a succubus? This Sophie looks like an angel with those feathery wings (not complaining as I'll definitely be putting in an order for the swag bag).

I like the new wings. It gives her a more westerny look. Like a big bird of prey. ::):

Looks like I might actually make my first RCon, so I'm getting one of theses!

 

I think this might be the first Sophie I do get (if you don't count Trollslayer Sophie from KS2 - so a Sophie in the hand is worth two in the err...ummm...I think I need a different idiom)

It helps if you know that they're supposed to be buzzard wings.  Anyway, succubi are shapeshifters, so the leathery wings are optional.

Traditional, to the tune of the Irish Washerwoman. 

 

Oh, the devil in hell they say he was chained,
And there for a thousand years he remained;
He neither complained nor did he groan,
But decided he'd start up a hell of his own,
Where he could torment the souls of men
Without being shut in a prison pen;
So he asked the Lord if he had any sand
Left over from making this great land.

 

The Lord He said, "Yes, I have plenty on hand,
But it's away down south on the Rio Grande,
And to tell you the truth, the stuff is so poor
I doubt it will do for a hell anymore."
The Devil went down and looked over the truck,
And he said if it came as a gift he was stuck,
For when he'd examined it carefully and well
He decided the place was too dry for a hell.

 

But the Lord to just get the stuff off His hands
He promised the Devil He'd water the lands,
For He had some old water that was of no use,
A regular bog hole that stunk like the deuce.
So the contract was signed and the deed was given,
And the Lord went up to his spread up in heaven.
The Devil soon saw he had everything needed
To make a good hell and so he proceeded.

 

He scattered tarantulas over the road,
Put thorns on the cactus and horns on the toads,
He sprinkled the sand with millions of ants
So the man that sits down must wear soles on his pants.
He lengthened the horns of the Texas steer,
And added an inch to the jack rabbit's ear;
He put water puppies in all of the lakes,
And under the rocks he put rattlesnakes.

 

He hung thorns and brambles on all of the trees.
He mixed up the dust with jiggers and fleas.
The rattlesnakes bites you, the scorpion stings,
The mesquito delights you by buzzing his wings.
The heat in the summer's a hundred and ten--
Too cool for the devil and too hot for men,
And all who survived in that climate soon bore
Stings, cuts, bites, scratches, and blisters galore.

 

He quickened the buck of the bronco steed
And poisoned the feet of the centipede.
The wild boar roams in the black chaparral.
It's a hell of a place that we've got for a hell.
He planted red pepper along all the brooks;
The Mexicans use them in all that they cook.
Just dine with a Mexican and you will shout,
"I've got hell on the inside as well as the out!"
