2019 Secret Sophie

Recommended Posts

My package arrived today from @Dr Bob!!!!! It was full of some gorgeous goodies.

For non-mini awesomeness, it included a copy of Cary Elwes' book about The Princess Bride (which I don't have yet and am really looking forward to reading!), a sticker, and an eye patch that is definitely going to be making an appearance at Reapercon this year.

 

As for minis, there was a purple robed Mrs. Bones:

A pretty blue tiefling:

And, linked for nudity, an amazingly painted Lolth!

 

She glows in the dark too!!!! Thank you Dr. Bob, these are all going to be treasured.

 

In less pleasant news, it looks like the USPS is still holding onto my recipient's box, which was supposed to be delivered last week. If there's no movement by Monday I'll contact them and see what is going on.

So USPS responded to me, and they don't know where my recipient's package is. Which is wonderful when said package contains a hand painted mini (*sarcasm*).  I'm going to call them back tomorrow and sort out what to do next. If anyone has received a package from me please let me know, as there's a small chance it was delivered and not scanned. There's also a chance that it was returned to sender and somehow missed all scans that way (though I would guess if that was the case I would have received it last week). 

 

Either way, I'll make sure my recipient gets their shinies, it just may be a bit more of a wait

That happened to me once and the post office delivered the lost package to me a few days later after I'd filed a report. Interestingly, I received updates on the computer on the "lost package" for 6 months and then a final once telling me they'd given up on finding the package. I kept meaning to update them...

Did you call the national number for USPS or did you contact their branch directly? I have found the national number to be almost useless but when I call my branch directly, they are pretty helpful. I have had a few packages get waylaid on their way to me and my branch will physically check to see if they have it there. I also have discovered that they can sometimes see different tracking than me. I have had packages that have had no movement but they show that they have it or they delivered it to my apartment's leasing office.

I used their online inquiry form, but judging by the area code they've been using to call me, I've been dealing with the local post office to my recipient. I'm hoping it will show up again but we're a good two weeks from when it should have been delivered now

No worries!  I was able to stop at my apartment office, and lo and behold, there was my package full of holiday-ness.  I'm annoyed that they had my package and didn't contact me.  But the goodies within are wonderful! Two dragons I don't have (yay!) and Santa, who I don't have either.  And. yes, fudge! But the Werner Klocke barbarian is definitely the best thing in the box - beautiful job!  I am very happy!

So I'm very (VERY) late to the party, a lot of things went crazy at the start of 2020.  I have been saving my box of goodies from Warlady until I actually sent out my gift.  Fortunately, today I tossed everything in a box and got it in the mail, so I could open my box of saved goodies.  I absolutely love the adorable Christmas Rogue I recieved, I keep meaning to paint all the Christmas adventurers so we can have a family D&D game when everyone's home, but somehow I've only ever painted them to give away.  

 

Thank you so much, and many (MANY) apologies to my poor recipient.  It should be there by the end of the week!

      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:

      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.
