Sculptor: Bob Ridolfi
I fished this cute girl out of the Box o’ Goodwill from the Reaper forums, so it’s only right that she make her way back to another forum member as an exchange mini for Secret Sophie 2016. Tricksay wanted to receive “open to anything”; I love when people pick that, because I can just paint whatever I feel like. Thanks to Bonwirn for giving me a bunch of Hirst Arts blocks to make the diorama out of.
After I took these pictures I realized: OMG, you can’t even see the rear half that I spent so much time on. Despite the chance of ruining the mini, I carefully drilled a magnet hole through the bottom of the base so she can be removed. I threw in a gaming base as well for picture taking purposes, and just in case Tricksay ever wants to use her in a game. I was joking with my friends at paint day that “no, those are her adventuring clothes; convenient necklace, weird skirt-thong and all.”
I painted this guy for the Privateer Press Forums Secret Santa 2016 exchange. This is a Christmas themed exchange, so Naaresh here got lots of Christmas colors. I used two of Reaper’s Christmas special edition MSP paints – Christmas Wreath (green) and Ginger Cookie (tan). Other major colors are MSP Big Top Red and VGC Glorious Gold.
And yes, this dude has bits of [festive] metal stuck into his skin. Hoksune, I guess.
Painted this guy for edz16 on the Reaper forums (his partner, who received 01559: Malena the Sorceress (Project N) bailed on him). I got most of the painting done at ReaperCon ’16. My lovely cell-phone camera captures all the terrible bits, while ignore most of the good stuff. In person, this looks better, and I’m hoping edz16 can get some decent shots of him.
Finished up Malena for my exchange partner, and will mail her off later this week. I’m actually kind of sad to let her go, and might have to reuse this color scheme in the future.
The base of the blue is MSP Bones HD Tropical Blue, and the green is PP Poison Green up to MSP Moth Green.
Lots of photos because I will not have another chance to take any.
Special Edition miniature (ReaperCon 2015), sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I was honestly not a huge fan of the sculpt, but I felt like it would be a good fit for what my partner wanted. There are lots of wavy cloth bits to paint. Only shading has been done so far.
