2016 Secret Sophie / Winter Exchange

Recommended Posts

Wooohoo! I suck at posting on time.

ANYWAYS. My partner should get it today (after finally getting to PO again) or tomorrow, I forget which day exactly.

Also: Received said box, waiting until after work on Friday to open it (as it's my longest shift so a surprise is fun)

I'm glad I'm not the only one....

 

Anyway, my gifts are on the way to their recipient (who I've already contacted to apologize for my tardiness).

I received a very nice purple worm and a intellect devourer. I think these are from you. Thank you for them. I especially love the ID. Great job!

Hiyo! I'm here to brag about my mystery Secret Sophie gifter ^_^ I've been out of town after a death in the family and disappeared for a month– I apologize for the delay!

 

My Secret Sophie sent me chocolates, bases, minis, and a beautifully painted dwarf (more on that below). I also received a very cool illustration of a Beholder. My gift-giver is quite the artist! And the chocolate is delicious– in fact, I took this picture after eating one of the other medallions (whoops!)

Their painted mini, titled "Still Easier Than Herding Gamers", is especially awesome since it looks like she's giving orders to a cat. Being a cat lover myself, I know that definitely won't be easy! It's a great mini and I'm proud to have it on my "minis painted by friends" shelf.

 

To show my thanks, I wanted to take some nice pictures of the mini, in case the painter didn't have them already. Since it's a mystery forum member, feel free to personal message me if you're interested in higher resolution photos. In the meantime, I wanted to brag about your mini:

Again, thank you! With everything going on, I was so grateful to receive this– it truly lifted my spirits!!

Just realized I never posted pics, even though I took them.  Internet must have been out when I took them...at least that's my excuse.....

This is the metal version, 02416: Cave Troll. I really like the colour scheme; very different from what I'd do, but it looks great.

So I got Chaoswolf's package and finally managed to slow down and take some pics.  Three minis in blisters, all are super cool and right about my kind of odd :-)  Also a container of some groundcover mix that I really like.  Kind of grassy dirty with some other stuff thrown in.  I usually put at least a little something on all my bases, even just tabletop stuff, and I have 2 Bloodbowl teams to assemble and paint for the husband, so the timing is perfect.  There's also a hairnet, which I'm told makes great spiderwebs!  I've never managed to make any spiderweb effects I like, so again, super cool.  Last, but certainly not least, something I call "The Bathinglian"  It's got a Bathalian head, and a whole lot of bits from other minis.  I can't wait to finish my current to do list so I can paint it up.

 

Thanks Chaoswolf, it was certainly worth the wait!!!

Pics of the box will be up soon. Some chocolate covered pretzels, a few figures, a painted Yephima, and a few other odd and ends

Still waiting on pictures.

 

GF

      This was one of two figures I painted for @Fealron for the Secret Sophie this year.
       
      His ideas were Metal, minimal basing for gaming use, a woodland creature, usually considered good but turned to evil, and a minion of a necromancer.
       
      After thinking a while, I decided I could knock out all his ideas with some evil unicorns.
       
      Here is the second.  Maybe once the prior unicorn charmed by a necromancer does, he raised it as a skeleton, and put another minion on top.
       
      Here are the WIP shots:
      https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/90618-02631-skeletal-cavalry-project-2-of-2-for-fealron/
       








       
      I magnetized the mount and rider.
      I had a lot of fun with these, and definitely bittersweet to part with them!
       
      Thanks for looking.

      Here is the first.  I envisioned a unicorn charmed by a necromancer that tramples a virgin, staining it black.  That taint would spread from the hooves, causing a grayscale, with only a few remnants of white/color where the corruption is still incomplete.

      I’ll post the fiction a little later when I’m at my desktop.
