Nope, she arrived in one piece. Thanks again.


Can you show pictures of what was in the package?? It's good to know you could use the box, but I'm missing words on the package xD
Plus the teaser of 'wings' and 'sophie' makes me very intrigued to see what you got! 😄

I don't keep a photobox set up so it will be a bit, unless @SamuraiJack took a few before he shipped it.

My morning started early with a text message from the Fed Ex man asking me the number of my unit. Oops! I didn't mind because it meant my delivery was on the way! He messaged back that he would be here around lunchtime!


Just after noon, he showed up with my Secret Sophie package!


@Inarah, thank you so very much! The Russell Stovers almost made me cry! It was like a hug from home! I am so excited about the hot cocoa! Your choice of candy is very good! I have already eaten a couple pieces!


The handmade bag....WOW! I love it! So cute! The halfling cooks and gravestones will for sure be painted! The gravestones can go straight into my cemetery and the cooks...well, I can see them running a tavern in one of the Hobbit villages or maybe they have opened a specialty cafe in a big city! My players will love them!


Then, last but certainly not least, the painted minis. I took out the elf mage first. He is awesome! I love the bag of scrolls on his back and his cloak blowing in the wind. The cleric is gorgeous! She is painted in some of my favorite colors. Her purple armor is gorgeous and I love how her teal cloak is shaded with purple. Her shield has a pegasus on it. They are beautiful! I will have to take better photos!


Ok, I know I am going on and on but not having been able to receive any mail or packages from the US for quite some time, I appreciate this so much! 

Here are my unboxing photos!

The Loop on the ornament was detached but it was otherwise fine.. it went back on and glue should fix it..

Just got the package from my Secret Sophie!  Very cute metal bard mini painted up very colorfully.  I don’t think I’ve seen this mini before.


There’re some cool older minis in the box I didn’t know existed and useful stuff for D&D - the stirges are great, I can definitely use that gloom stalker, and that Mephisto is very nice. I didn’t know that mini existed.  The storm giant is awesome too.


I’m not sure what my Sophie’s forum name is, but thanks!

Any word on a Summer Exchange?


Life is a little crazy for me right now and I am not sure if I will be able to organize one this year. If I am able to, I will probably start signups sometime next month.

      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
