I was finally able to order all the things!  Once that arrives I should be able to send my gift as I plan to finish the base for the painted gift tomorrow (at least I'm assuming everything will have time to dry for me to finish).

 

Quick question, when I send the package should I let the person know then or do I just wait for them to get it to find out who it's from?

Got a package of awesomeness from @Exsturminator  

After tracking showed that my package had arrived in Australia, then left and went to Tokyo, then left Tokyo and came back to Australia, it's here!   Thank you so much @rubegon! The two pain

I finished my mini tonight, so yay, better than last year.  The problem is that my master plan was to 3d print a cool base, but my printer appears to have missed its projected ship date.  So I'll give

I let the moderator know and provide the tracking number to pass on anonymously to the recipient. 

Don't forget to take photos before you mail it.

Well I guess Reaper called my bluff :down:

 

I thought for sure I would have the painted piece ready to go by the time the package got here since I just ordered this Saturday night.  But no the hard working people in the Reaper warehouse had to make me look bad!  It was delivered this morning!  

 

Maybe they are telling me to get off my bust and just finish the elfing thing!  :lol:

The painted minis are finished. I am going to take pictures and then figure out how I am going to pack them up safely with the other goodies. I will be sending them out tomorrow or Wednesday probably. I will send a message when I go to the post office.

Mine is painted, photographed and boxed up.  Since I have to work my second job this evening the package will probably go out tomorrow or Wednesday.

 

Is it ok if I only painted one figure?  I wanted to paint more but other projects got in the way.

Absolutely! I usually only paint one. I painted two this time just because they went together.

As Pochi said, one is definitely ok.

I'm almost done with painting my mini(s). Will hopefully be posting it on Monday, currently trying to figure out how to make sure it survives the rigors of the postal system as one particular part is giving me cause for concern. I've got some air bladders and am considering the box-within-a-box approach.

 

Next time I do this, I'll make sure the mini doesn't have any fragile, sticky out parts ^_^

Yep! I am terrified mine will be in pieces but I bubble wrapped and then bubble wrapped some more and put them inside a box and then packed that in with everything else. The last one I sent was pinned just with one foot touching the base and it made it so I am hoping my excessive packing works again!

The box within a box approach seems to work for me. A couple of years ago I had done a conversion where I added horns to a figure. The horns were securely pinned and glued. They swept forward like bulls horns and didn't stick straight up. But one of them arrived broken, even though I had padded the figure with bubble wrap. So since then I have been placing the figures in a stiff plastic container inside the box I ship the figure in.

      Better late than never.

      Here's some fun Pumpkin Horrors I painted up for @Inarah for Secret Sophie this past December.  I was still riding on my Halloween spirit when Secret Sophie began, but wanted to do something that fit the winter theme.  Inspired by the snowman-like design of the Pumpkin horrors and my own past mistakes of leaving pumpkins outside to rot all winter, I decided to do a holiday mashup with these guys left out in the cold too long.

      With some time having passed, I wish I would have made them look a bit rotten and frost-bitten, but I also like the more colorful result.

      These were some fun minis and my first time working with metal.  I have now broken the seal and have started looking into other minis that I previously considered off-limits.  I also enjoyed participating in Secret Sophie and joining in to some of the forum shenanigans.  I highly recommend participating in these kinds of things for any who have been reticent.
       
      What are some of your favorite holiday minis?

      So some times you just done get things finished with the deadline you have imposed on yourself and this elf was one of those self-imposed deadlines. I wanted to have her done by Christmas, but just got too busy with other miniatures and other things.  I got this figure if I recall last Christmas when I won her with some others on a Reaper Christmas Giveaway on Twitch.  
       
      Here she is:
       

       
      Always thought she was a cute little figure.  The other ones I want but they haven't sold them for a few Christmasses now are the two elves, naughty and nice.  But one of these days I'm sure they will pop up again.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy, happy belated Christmas and New Year!

      It has been a while since my last post, I'm am just struggling to find the free time to sit down and paint or build at the moment.
       
      Anyway, this week I got the opportunity to run some run some 'build along' model making workshops with the kids at the Youth Centre where I work, and we have been putting together little X-mas themed display pieces.  It was actually pretty fun being able to share and introduce a new generation to the joys of my nerdy hobby.  I was pretty pleased with how they turned out so I figured I would share. 
       
      The base is just a piece of log, and the moose is a very cheap plastic toy (I repainted mine), which I managed to find at a local discount store in big buckets of 50 animals for £2, they really cheap and nasty, but actually paint up nicely.  Everything else is just standard modeling stuff, sculptamold, static grasses, clump foliage etc.
       
      On another note I have not forgotten about or abandoned my Apocalyptic Suburbia Journal, it is still sat on my desk gathering dust.  I plan to get back to it in the new year.

      Pretty happy with this. It's the first metal anything that I've successfully painted so also pretty proud about that.
       
      Extremely happy with her face. Might go back and touch-up a few spots. C&C welcome.

      Decided to give the group dice trays this year for the holidays.  
       
      I wanted to get this done before Saturday and I wanted to take a shot at getting at least a first one done tonight.
       
      So here is the prototype.  The finished format will be actually glued down as well as nailed down.  I was trying to decide if I like the nail  on the top.  On the prototype it let's me move things around but they will be optional on the final version.
