2016 Secret Sophie / Winter Exchange

Recommended Posts

Everything is boxed up and headed to the post office today. Unfortunately I took pictures this morning and discovered one tiny stray brush stroke that I would have touched up if I'd noticed it yesterday. :down:

Glad it arrived safely. I was concerned about drybrushing on the hair, but I really wanted it to stand out from the black body.

 

I also got a package today. Thank you Jack. So mush to play with and I did not know Reaper was doing colored bases now. I also have another Sophie to paint and another girl I have to decide upon colors for. Plus a new base stamp. Now I must purchase putty to play with my new toys (the spiderweb and other from NoZ)

 

Thank you SamuraiJack!

I suppose I should have posted this sooner, but my exchange package went out in the mail last Wednesday, and will hopefully arrive very soon.

There was freezing rain in my area this morning, and MrBoot told me he experienced some black ice on his way into work (nothing bad happened, he could just tell it was icy), so errands will have to wait until tomorrow. :down:

 

I'm super excited for my partner to get their package!!! This having to keep waiting to post it is getting increasingly frustrating.

 

Huzzah!        

--OneBoot :D

Orange is always a good color. Debating how to make use of the bases the most. Sophie is now on one as I liked it better...

 

I just need to go buy putty to make use of the stamp. I have a few ideas for that. It does not yet involve spiders...

      My exchange partner this year was Fealron and one of the ideas suggested was a new enemy or villain to throw against his players.  I had this guy on hand and wondered if a giant werewolf would fit the bill: 
       
      14030: Vasyl, Rageclaw Alpha 


       
      While I was painting that I came across these guys and they just begged to be henchmen: 
       

      The one in the middle I believe is an old Grenadier, the others are clix. 
       
      Meanwhile, back at the ranch I did a little digging and discovered that Fealron has a set of DwarvenForge, so I felt compelled to paint these as a gift.  It's all molded from Hirst Arts molds (except the barrel mimic).  I hope they provide hours of fun play.

      My partner this time around was Clearman.  He requested a heroic character painted heroically, and nothing says heroic quite like the word "Hellknight."  Of course, I haven't actually played the adventure(s) that Pathfinder Hellknights appear in so maybe they are cuddly people.  We'll say she just finished up a heroic day of undead slaying.
       
      Metals are TMM, which my camera hates, but I think I managed to get a few decent shots.  For something different I painted the base using pigments rather than hobby paints. I used the wet method of applying them and the color shift is huge, so I wasn't sure how they would come out until they dried.  Of course you can be intentionally sloppy because any pigments on the mini's boots just help "tie the figure to its base." I freehanded some wood grain onto the shaft of the weapon just to add some interest to the boring space.

      Any interest in a new round of trading cards? 
       
      What is an artist trading card (ATC)? 
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist_trading_cards
       
      Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5". Most swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card fits into a standard trading card sleeve.
       
      http://www.tinteddy.com/introduction-to-atcs-what-are-artist-trading-cards/
       
      If I can get 6 or more people I will set up a round of 1-1 trades for forum members. Post here or PM me if you'd like to participate.  I am thinking of an Oct 1 start date and Dec 1 due (in the mail) date.

      well, he finally made it out of the house!  My exchange is officially in the mail.
       
      My exchange partner had asked for something futuristic and something either goofy or scary, so of course I went with ludicrous.  What do you give the giant demonic poisonous spider that has it all?  high tech lasers and missile launchers!  I have been building and painting some of my eldar pieces and decided that they could use a mascot.
       
      As for things I haven't done in a while.  I have started to play with decals again as a way of adding some interest to my larger grav tanks and space ships so I thought I would add a few here for fun.
       
      The weapons pack is removable if my partner wants to use him as a basic giant spider (actually I got a few complaints from the arachnid union when we discussed permanent attachment...)  there are to pointy pins that attach the weapons pack to the back of the spider (bones material does have its uses.
       
      So here is the Mark I demonic assault spider.  I hope everyone enjoys him!
