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

My awesome box of goodies arrived yesterday from @Kangaroorex!

It included Reaper minis, a gorgeous painted Rocky with present, a plethora of lovely 3D prints, a fabulous Mirliton metal dragon, a wooden dice that will surely betray me, some Necco(geddit?) sweets, a handmade pen and a bag of delicious home baked cookies!

 

Loki is keeping a careful eye on Rocky, or possibly on the present. If the dragon is fascinated by it then surely it must be very important ::D:

Thank you so much @Kangaroorex, everything in the box was awesome and Rocky is absolutely gorgeous!

I received my package of goodies from Pochi today. Some yummy treats and fae type minis for my next D&D campaign. She did a fantastic job on the painted minis.

Yay! I hope you like the treats! We all loved the poprock popcorn! It was hard to find the cool  handmade Christmas ornaments this year with the markets being closed due to Covid. I did get one of those kookaburras for myself as well though!

Glad the wings stayed on the faeries! Hope your D&D game goes well and the creatures can be of assistance!

 

Happy New Year!

I love seeing the photos of all the Secret Sophie packages!  Lots of great minis and thoughtful gifts!  :wub:

 

I just finished painting tonight!  I'll get to boxing tomorrow and should be shipping on Monday.

 

I ended up doing 2 models because they go together and I wanted to try some things.

 

I took some quick photos on the hobby table but will take nicer one in my lightbox tomorrow for ShowOff.

 

My recipient knows who they are and should NOT open the spoiler tag (unless they want to spoil the surprise!  :devil:).

Thank you so much @rubegon! The two painted minis are the Jade Fire Shaman and the Jade Fire Spearman. They are so cool! In my D&D world, orcs have different colored skin depending on where they are from. The mountain orcs are shades of blues and greys. These two will be fantastic mountain orcs! They are beautiful!

 

He included a few more of the Jade Fire  fierce ladies, some townsfolk and the Harrowgate statues that were on my wishlist. There is a cool Paladorian mini since he knew I liked Star Wars. Then, as if that weren't enough, he sent me a variety of basing materials and some water splash gel! I had mentioned that I liked peppermint and told him that my mom in the US had told me there were sugar cookie M&M's and he sent me both! 

 

I did laugh at the packaging and wondered what customs would have thought had they looked inside. Green plantlike material in baggies and a couple medicine bottles. Nothing to see here!

 

Again, thank you so very much! I love everything!

 

(Photos aren't great. Took them with my phone as I opened things on my coffee table.) @rubegon if you took nice photos, please post them or I will take nicer photos so people can actually see your beautiful paint jobs!

      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.
