2019 Secret Sophie

Recommended Posts

I should be able to do this- will send PM this week.  I like painting for people because I love giving gifts. If you get to paint for me, please know that I cherish every mini I have ever been gifted, and they have a special place on my shelf. I do not care about skill level. The holidays are about love and sharing, not quantity or quality.


This is also about fun!  So have fun!! 


PS: I asked for coal one year in my stocking when I was still collecting rocks.  I never got it. :down: I had to go buy it at a local gem show...

I want to join in, but looking at how distracted my life has been I cannot join. I'm still behind in trying to send out last year secret sophie. My intended recipient knows already. I'm almost there! Almost a year late.

Its been a few years since I've participated, I'm back in for this year!  Glitterwolf's constant painting awesomeness has acted as a muse to my painting spirit!

I think I'm gonna jump in on this again this year. I'm sure someone out there desperately needs my brand of odd.

      So, I'm working on a miniature for my Box of Many Things exchange partner, more commonly known as a "Thinger" among those long time participants. This happens on the Twitters and you can search for it by sticking one those hashtag/pound sign/number sign thingies in front of BoxofManyThings in the search thingy there. Basically, it is like a Secret Santa type thing for geeks and nerds that happens every couple months. Sign ups for the next one should start near the end of October, if you are interested.
      Anywho, my "Thinger" is interested in, among other things, Medusas. So, since I'm kind of not up to much due to a severe lack of AC at my place, I've decided to try to distract myself from the fact I am alternating between melting and immolating at this time by making a custom mini and painting it. Also, attempt to chronicle it too.

      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.
