Recommended Posts

Woot, my package has finally escaped from New York and has a tracking update. Hopefully it will be out for delivery tomorrow.

Is it a Snake? Plissken

Yesterday I came home to my Secret Sophie package from Guindyloo It made it safely through the snow storm or the winter witch summoned the snowfall and brought it with her. Here are the photos I took of Guindyloo's very striking paint job on Reaper's Winter Witch.

And of course a group shot of the gifts sent along which were wrapped so nicely with ghost ribbon. Thank you again Guindyloo I love everything and I may need to put in a random encounter for my current campaign to include the intro of the winter witch who just may become a new villain.

Wow, the Winter Witch was sure popular!  I think I counted three people who painted it.

 

In other news, there are only a handful of exchanges outstanding.  If you haven't received yours yet, just PM me for a status update.

The first portion of what I sent is getting Customs Clearance in the destination country! Someone should be getting a box of goodies soon! If you get a box from Reaper, it's from me!

Quick survey: How do people like having 2 months to paint vs 3?  Is that just an extra month to procrastinate, or would it help improve your painting or your chances of getting it out on time?

I'll procrastinate as long as i can ;)

Yeah, so... no painting for three nights in a row. :grr:

 

Monday I tried, but the kids wanted to paint. They want to so rarely I went ahead and said okay. They took over my station (not enough room) and that was that as I tried to teach how to thin paint, wash and prep, and use primer.

 

Tuesday, dinner took a while and then I spent the rest of the time cleaning up my paint area from the night before. Lessons in brush care. <_<

 

Wednesday was spent working in my mom's computer retrieving error logs.

 

Blearg.

Teach them the value and care of quality things early!

That way when they use your car.....

Keep your chin up and hopefully you can get some work done on it this week/weekend if things settle down for you.

Depends. Sometimes I'm fast, sometimes...life happens.

      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 removable in case he wants to use her for gaming.

       
      I enjoyed painting her quite a bit I think my favorite part was her skin, I used a bit of purple pink in the shadows which I think shows better in hand and then glazed it with a rosy flesh to help make it a bit warmer while still looking cool overall. I will have to pick her up again and paint one up to keep, she is just too pretty of a sculpt not to.

      So, Dispatchdave painted me up a couple of minis for the Winter Exchange. These things are... I cannot express just how much I love these.
       
      The colors used on Darkrasp are gorgeous. I love his skintone in particular. The robes are wonderful and (since things were a bit rubbed off when he got here), I touched up his chains and scythe. I did the scythe with a very pale blue, white brushed on top in a streaky pattern.
       
      The visbaronesses face is my favorite bit (after that, the lovely autumn color selection). It's just stunning. the puffed up, slightly reddened cheeks, the perfect eyes, the amazing hair.
       
      DD, you've seriously made me happy. Thank you so much for the fantastic miniatures!
