Proudly frowning at you from a camouflaging background of German Field Grey,
behold Conan den Barbaren vor seiner größten Schlacht!
Masterfully painted by MOPHUS...

by the way, before posting this, I went and fraggled up my original post by editing instead of quoting and re-posting.
Ah well, another piece of poetry lost among the depths of the internet.

Sadly, I don't know who sent my figure, so I can't provide that info (nor thank him personally via pm as I'd wish).

Moreover, I understand there are people who have received but have not posted photos? I don't want to be rude or anything, but come on guys, it's been a while now, post some photos.
Maybe you want to post detailed photos and that takes time, but a quick photo and upload takes 5 minutes, you can't argue that you can't find 5 minutes to do that, no matter how busy you may be.

Anyway, I think the full list should be revealed at this point, no need to repost the photos and load up the forum for no good reason.

So now I managed to steal som time for the hobby - herewith I present you the present I got this christmas from Geofons. Normally, I would not name him at this point, but he put his forum name in the copyright remark on the cards, which are an essential part of the whole thing, so you can read it anyway.

It was an absolutely gret idea, carried out in an almost perfect manner.

When I got the parcel, the following note was outside the inner packaging, so I saw it before christmas eve. After reading some lines, I tried not to read further, so not to spoil the surprise for christmas.
Image
From this, you can already tell the amount of thought and efford he put in this.
____

Here comes the actual figure (which is only part of the complete pesent):
The Pharaoh
Image

Now, is this what he calls "amateur level"? :shock:
This is the first figure he modded and painted since he was 12?! :o :shock:

And I thought I was a good modder...
So many parts, brought together so seemless...
The painting may not reach the level of some semiprofessionals here at the Inn, but is still well ahead of my own capabilities.

Some more pics:

A full frontal:

A behind view:

Another angle:
Image

The feet! notice the feet!
Image

And finally a dramatic view to give justice to this piece of art:
Image

Very well, but a figure is hardly enough to play with. You have to provide some rules for the charakter.
Or do you? Until now, a well done figure was all I could hope for in the Inn exchanges, as well as the best I could think of to make as my own contribution.
But not for Geofons.
He made the Pharaoh into a complete Character, complete with character card:

Image

Isn't this just insane, in a good way?
Look at the design'
And you can take my word that it is technicall perfect, you really don't see it's custom made. The thickness, the finish, everything's like original.

And then there are the gods and their blessings:

Image
Image

While I could object to minor theological details as an academian, I could hardly have done it better, provided he had to convert it into playable rules.
I absolutely love the creativity behind this.
And again, the technical design is perfect. The cards look and feel really "original".

A real big thanks to you, Michael! Have a wonderful year 2017!
Have a look ;)

JESUS! That's a whole expansion in itself!
Just the mini would have been more than enough!
Wow!

I'm also pleased to announce that my mini has finally arrived. Will snap some pics tomorrow in the daylight ;)

Pretty damn cool. Talk about raising the bar...*Chuckle*... I had previously mentioned that it would be cool to see some "How I Did It" after action stuff from the creators. I think this effort certainly proves the point. It would be nifty to hear, for example, what approach was taken to match original game specks on the cards and such, not to mention the modding aspect for the mini (Converted Chaos Sorcerer?)...

Regardless, and again, this year has been a lot of fun to follow. Just some really great work put in by you folks.

*mother hug*.
Just brilliant. Starts at twisting the Zombie legs to make them normal and ends at ... well, it doesn't really end.
Wow.

Thank you all for your kind words, it means a lot to me coming from the semi-pros of the inn that have seen pretty much anything around here. And yes, I hadn't done any serious miniature painting or modding since I was a kid. So I expected this to be just presentable.
I will be posting the character card, the God blessings cards and the miniature tomorrow in the appropriate sections of the forum. I will also state how the cards and mini were made and will provide the templates for it, should anyone wanna make a pharaoh for themselves. In the end, I'm really happy that Big Bene liked his present.
I also would like to thank fellow Greeks Sotiris and tasoe (they already knew what I was sending) for giving me their feedback on my WIP all these weeks. They gave me great ideas and inspiration about both the cards and the minis. Ευχαριστώ πολύ για όλα, μάγκες!
See you tomorrow in the Additions section. Stay tuned.
