Got sent home from work early due to a Snow Storm advisory. After taking 30minutes to crawl home on what is usually a 10 minute commute, I came home to a happy little package from @NecroMancer

The box was packed with so many wonderful goodies. I'll look at them all closer below the spoiler, but the short if it is I love it all. The painted mini was made with fantastic attention to detail, the unpainted minis all have a use in my games. Extra basing is never a bad thing. The d20 is appropriately themed. And I've already torn into the candy.

The card gave me a good laugh and was very sincere. It told me to look at the items first - so I did - then I came back to finish it. There was a lot written so I've got a lot to say in response.

The crown jewel of the box is this beautiful painted Wrath of Kings mini. It fits in perfectly with the nautical campaign I've been working on and has some wonderful details! Look at that crashing waves! Ariel has some steep competition.

Accompanying the painted king is another WoK mini that appears to be a sharkman. I recently received a set of WoK Pit Fighters that are nearly all sharkmen so this guy fits in great!

Continuing the shark theme is a Zombie shark. I think I've got one of these guys swimming around in my Bones 4 pile, but two sharks are always better than one. Tempted to get a third to round it out.

Last aquatic themed item is this coral golem. A classic option that's been on my list for awhile. Glad to finally have it!

This Fire Giant King breaks the aquatic theme and strays more into my Frostrun campaign world. A winter campaign set in a realm of giants. I've yet to receive any of the new Huge Giants from Reaper and this is an excellent first entry.

Got a bag full of ceramic basing materials. The big one may have cracked in shipping but I likely would have to break it up to use anyways. The smaller stones would have been perfect two days ago while looking for something to fill an awkward gap on another project.

These tufts are absolutely gorgeous. I am going to be hesitant to use them on anything as I don't want them to run out. These were a pleasant surprise!

 

IMG_20201216_143241794.thumb.jpg.ba248d49fa598c92f48cbf954cfa0a18.jpg

 

Got a hefty d20 that is appropriately themed for either my winter or nautical campaign.

And lastly are some bags of candy. I am quite pleased with these and have already helped my self to more kitkats than I should have for someone who hasn't eaten lunch yet. 

 

 

This was a lovely gift and a good motivator for me to finish getting my gift ready to send out.

Thank you again NecroMancer!

My life has been way too busy!  First package just needs to be boxed and I hope to get it out today (only a week later than I hoped) second one is base coated and hopefully will be finished and shipped before Christmas. 

 

All the goodies look gorgeous!  Many thanks and a lot of appreciation to everyone who got theirs out early!

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 it until after Christmas to get in the mail, and if it doesn't I'll have to make a less cool base on my own.  Either way I won't have it out by the 29th, so I'm going to go ahead and post my "WIP" of the finished product.  But no peeking at presents before Christmas!

I have had a most delightful afternoon opening my Secret Sophie gift.  I had a cat on hand to assist if needed. 

 

IMG_20201229_122513342.jpg.aef3738cad0da89d5f936e349daca554.jpg

 

The box contained a card and two pretty dice bags with lovely scented candles, which I shall enjoy very much.

Then, the boxes. How to get them open?  I started with the "artifact", as the sender called it, and was most puzzled.  Then I went back and re-read the cards more carefully, and started with the box, as suggested.   It was very cleverly constructed, and I had to inspect it very carefully to discover its secret workings.  At last, it gave up its contents:

 

IMG_20201229_152920539.jpg.7969cf0c7435ffb232639441c778ceca.jpg

 

Inside I found a very cryptic message, virtually indecipherable, but I had been provided a clue to unlocking the artifact......

For those of you who enjoy puzzles, the message is hidden here:

Inside the chamber was hidden treasure:

They are adorable and I love the frost effects.  Many thanks to Moonglow Minis, I haven't had this much fun in a very long time.  I love the gifts, but the puzzles were especially entertaining.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the gift!  It would have been sent out sooner but i puzzled myself trying to puzzle you!

This was my first time participating in any exchange on the forums and I had a great time.  Happy to have provided you with an evening of entertainment, and a handful of goodies for future fun!

      The Ghost of Christmas Past:-
       

       
      The Ghost of Christmas Present:-
       

       
      And the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come:-
       

       
      Presenting a trio of Christmas Ghosts by Reaper (Unfortunately I can't find their catalogue numbers).
       
      Despite their eyes being a bit googly, I'm really pleased with how all three of them came out (Particularly Christmas Future).
      I still don't get why Christmas Present is dressed like a pirate though.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I've bought several Christmas minis over the years, but this is the first one I painted! He's such a cute fellow and I had fun with him, even if it was Dec 28th before he was done...

      "Come out to the coast, we'll get together, have a few laughs..."
       
      First, let me explain "why" I made this.  Yes, "Die Hard" is a Christmas movie.  The same as any of those Hallmark channel movies, "It's a Wonderful Life," or "Elf."  I can feel my teeth rotting just mentioning that movie.
       
      Second, my wife wears holiday pins everyday for the month of December.  She even wears a pair of pins on occasion.  She has too many to fit into 25 days.
       
      Since this became a tradition, as is watching "Die Hard," every year, I started planning this craft project.
       
      I did have this sidelined for a bit, mostly due to not having the right size "vent" I wanted to use for the size of the pin.  I finally found a rounded corner rectangular set of cookie cutters (pkg of 10) that fit the bill.  LOL
       
      So with laminated pictures of John in the can, as it were, I cut him in and then added UV resin to seal him in.  A generous layer of resin.  Then I added a cutout of his head and his hand with the lighter to add some depth.
       
      Voila, John McClane in the vents of the Nakatomi Building. You might have seen some ornaments around the 'net.
       
      Here are some pics as well as my wife sporting the pin today.
       

      Just john bent into the "vent."
       

      John with a cutout of his head one layer in front of the background pic and his hand and light another layer ahead of that.
       

      Sadly a few bubbles formed on the top layers.  I got a few out before hardening the resin.
       

      The pin in place.
       

      My wife's new Christmas Pin.  LMAO
       
      It has two pin backs attached to the back with the UV resin.  Both with the clasp end and pin point down.  Easy placement and closing.  Holds it in place well.
       
      I think I am going to find a mini-bow for the top and add a ribbon around the outside.  Add to the Christmas presentation.
       
      For those wondering what UV resin I used... I got a couple of .75oz bottles off of Wish for the job a while ago.  Worked well.
       

       
      Enjoy and leave your thoughts and CC.  I am interested in hearing what you all think.

      This month I felt particularly inspired by the Nutcracker characters and decided to do a whole themed set. I learned a lot about the original source material and had fun reimagining some of my favorite Reaper painters as Christmas characters. If you want to play the guessing game, go right ahead, I'll put my inspirations after the images

         
       
      Sugar Plum Fairy- Erin Hartwell
      Drosselmeyer- Aaron Lovejoy
      The Nutcracker- James Wappel
      The Rat King- Ian Markon
