I had the privilege of painting this year's ReaperCon Sophie, and I thought people might enjoy it if I shared a few views. She's a fun mini to paint. Everything's clearly laid out and apparent, and Bob did such a wonderful job sculpting her face. I think he really captured the pose and spirit of Talin's artwork well. If you aren't into the wings, it shouldn't be too difficult to fill in the plug on the back where they slot in. If you are into wings, the extra attachment point of a small hole on the skirt makes them nice and easy to glue on, and they seem pretty secure to me. (I"m kind of cursed in the area of gluing/assembly.)

 

This is a special edition figure that will only be sold by Reaper during ReaperCon (maybe a little after, but I'd go get one from August 29 - September 2 just to be sure. Actually I will be grabbing more than one, because I would happily paint this again, but however many you want, that's your window. Maybe put it on your calendar to remember if you really want one of these lovely figures. If you aren't able to attend ReaperCon in person, she'll also be sold on the Reaper web store.

Here is the wonderful art that Izzy did for the character concept.

Here's a picture of Bob Ridolfi's terrific sculpt bringing that artwork to life.

And this is a colour version of a seated Sophie that I used to reference to try to capture Talin's vision for the colours.

Just awesome, very great Paint job. I was fortunate to get one from the Reapercon BoGw, cannot wait to use my meager skills to paint it up.  

Question: will Izzy's concept artwork show up in the new art book coming in bones 4?

Belatedly coming back to answer questions!

I didn't track painting time. I would guess some time between 15-20 hours. Which for me is getting speedier for something like this.

I do not know if this piece of art will be included in Izzy's Bones 4 art book. Since the art book is themed as Bones 4 and this isn't a Bones 4 mini, it may not.

Hey sorry didn’t see this until now. Thanks for answering! I asked bc I like to take my time and really understand what I’m doing, so it wouldn’t be anything for me to take that long or more for a typical 25mm. 

 

Gorgeous work. I aspire to this level of work, but unfortunately I’m closer to a forger than a real artist. Looking forward to more great stuff!!!
