Christmas traditions WIP 1

My in-laws have a tradition of passing off a joke gift to all the male adults. Someone (it’s forgotten who originally was gifted with the slippers) got a pair of knitted size 14 slippers (my in-laws are all over 6’5, I’m the short one at 6’2) in white, orange, and green wool. They are U-G-L-Y. This person then added a small change, like a patch, to each slipper and re-gifted it. The tradition continues. Each time someone has to add something to the slippers related to an interest. There’s one more person I can give these to before it becomes random (or someone else marries into the family or comes of age).

I wasn’t kidding when I said these were UGLY.


I will also be painting a few Reaper Orc minis at the same time. That’s right, I’m safety pinning a painted plastic minis to each slipper (one Sniper, one Marauder).

The Sniper x2 (77056)

The Marauder x2 (77042)

Rogan (77224)

And some spiders (77126)


These need to be done quickly so… weekly updates for you. I also never posted the finished version of my cultists, so I’ll post those soon too.
