2016 Secret Sophie / Winter Exchange

Recommended Posts

I have made progress on the mini for my victim  partner.   I am now in the planning stages of the base and hoping my limited skills can come close to the vision in my head!  (I am also looking for sweets to include in the delivery with the intent of it actually being there for Xmas)

Soooo busy with Real Life lately, but I do have the figures and I have a Plan, and lots of time coming up during the holiday to paint.

I have been slacking and have not picked up my brush since ReaperCon. Mostly due to real life stuff and needing to reorganize my painting area.

This is my situation as well.

I'm debating whether to add a second, small figure and make a mini diorama. I'll see what I have time for. ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Both figures practically finished, just a couple touch ups once I get them on base....might try and find one more figure ....base is ready to be painted, at least it is semi-built, just a more touches. Then onto gift part.....think I'll go with the one for me, one for them route again...it worked so well on my Reaper order!

I have a plan, I'm done with bases (Bless base stamps, makes my life easier!) Got all my stuff in, got things washed and prepped for the most part, and I'll start painting tomorrowish. Still trying to work put an exact color scheme, but then again playing it by ear is my jam...

Progress is being made! Most of PLAN A is Basecoated and shading has begun on parts that may be difficult to reach easily later without causing problems. My biggest problem is waiting for the paint to dry so I can continue onward! So, I have set up a couple of side projects to hopefully deal with that problem;)

I've asked everyone to post (either privately or publicly) a WIP of their progress by next week.  I've already received several pictures, and everyone is off to a good start.  I'm hoping to see a bunch more pictures after the Thanksgiving weekend.

 

Here's what I have so far on mine.  (if you're worried about spoilers, I can say that it's definitely not for anyone who received their assignment from me)

Figures have been cleaned and primed, just waiting on them to tell me what colors they want to be.

      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!
