  1. Any interest in a new round of trading cards? What is an artist trading card (ATC)? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist_trading_cards Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5". Most swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card fits into a standard trading card sleeve. http://www.tinteddy.com/introduction-to-atcs-what-are-artist-trading-cards/ If I can get 6 or more people I will set up a round of 1-1 trades for forum members. Post here or PM me if you'd like to participate. I am thinking of an Oct 1 start date and Dec 1 due (in the mail) date.
  2. My partner this time around was Clearman. He requested a heroic character painted heroically, and nothing says heroic quite like the word "Hellknight." Of course, I haven't actually played the adventure(s) that Pathfinder Hellknights appear in so maybe they are cuddly people. We'll say she just finished up a heroic day of undead slaying. Metals are TMM, which my camera hates, but I think I managed to get a few decent shots. For something different I painted the base using pigments rather than hobby paints. I used the wet method of applying them and the color shift is huge, so I wasn't sure how they would come out until they dried. Of course you can be intentionally sloppy because any pigments on the mini's boots just help "tie the figure to its base." I freehanded some wood grain onto the shaft of the weapon just to add some interest to the boring space.

    Reaper Exchange Mini

    Spoilered for my Exchange partner:
  4. Welcome to the 2018 Spring Miniature Exchange! This is the thread where I'll post announcements, and you can post questions, let people know that packages have be mailed or received, or just talk, get suggestions, and show off the awesome mini that your partner sent you. If you've never done an exchange before, how it works is like this: Everyone who is interested PMs me with the questionnaire below filled out (please don't just send an old one, as the questions may have changed). I then match you with a person whom you will paint a mini for, and a second person whom you will receive a painted mini from (sometimes it's the same person). You have until the deadline to send your mini out (please try really hard to do this, though we understand if sometime life gets in the way). That's pretty much it, feel free to PM me with questions. This exchange is based on trust. Please be respectful of the fact that someone else is investing their time, money and energy into painting a mini for you. I am simply the organizer, but I will do everything I can to make sure that everyone who paints a miniature receives one. The Rules (tl;dr version) Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM. Painters must send the organizers a WIP of their mini by April 1st. Paint your partner a mini and mail it to them by May 15th. Full Rules Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM. Please fill out the current version of the questionnaire, Please don't just send an old one, as questions may have changed. Reaper minis are the focus. If you want to paint more than one miniature, you may do so. If you wish to include other gifts for your recipient, you may do so, but please keep them small. There is no hard and fast rule, but keeping the value less than the price of a single miniature is a good rule of thumb. The focus of the exchange should be a Reaper product. Please don't contact your partner unless they have listed themselves as okay with contact. I've included it on the questionnaire, so you'll know who wants to keep it secret and who doesn't. In order to encourage people to start painting early, you will need to post a Work In Progress (WIP) image of your mini to either this thread, or as a reply to your organizer, by April 1st. The mini should be at least base-coated by this time. If you don't post a WIP by this point, I may have to drop you from the exchange. Please don't make me do this. Try really hard to get your miniature out by the deadline. Let an organizer know if you are going to be late. If you are mailing internationally and plan to send more than just miniatures/paint, you must contact your recipient to get any "bonus items" approved. We don't want any trouble with customs. As an example, plant matter or powders can cause a lot of trouble. The organizers (fanguad, robinh) can help facilitate any anonymous conversations you want to have with your partner. Have fun! Deadline The deadline to mail out miniatures for this exchange will be three months from when assignments are sent out, on May 15th. You must post a WIP image of your mini by April 1st. Assignments Deadline The organizers will send the assignments out in about two weeks (February 15th). Please let me know if you're interested by the 10th. I can't make any guarantees if you're late, but I will try to make arrangements. Exchange Assistant robinh will be helping me run this exchange. He will coordinate and communicate with approximately half the participants. You can contact either of us if you have any questions or issues. 2018 Spring Exchange Questionnaire -Mailing Information- Name: Address: -Miniature Information: Outbound- What can you paint?

(please include why) I painted for johndoe123 in the last miniature exchange. Notes: If you like to paint for a variety of different people, you can list those you've painted for in the past. We will do our best to pair you with someone new. Another situation is that you know certain people in real life, and would prefer to paint for someone you don't know. -Special Requests- For the organizer, your painter, or your recipient:
  5. well, he finally made it out of the house! My exchange is officially in the mail. My exchange partner had asked for something futuristic and something either goofy or scary, so of course I went with ludicrous. What do you give the giant demonic poisonous spider that has it all? high tech lasers and missile launchers! I have been building and painting some of my eldar pieces and decided that they could use a mascot. As for things I haven't done in a while. I have started to play with decals again as a way of adding some interest to my larger grav tanks and space ships so I thought I would add a few here for fun. The weapons pack is removable if my partner wants to use him as a basic giant spider (actually I got a few complaints from the arachnid union when we discussed permanent attachment...) there are to pointy pins that attach the weapons pack to the back of the spider (bones material does have its uses. So here is the Mark I demonic assault spider. I hope everyone enjoys him!
  6. I'm back after a short break - Welcome everyone, to the 2017 Secret Sophie thread! What is Secret Sophie, you ask? Well, it's a lot like Secret Santa, with a more attractive (albeit more dangerous) delivery person! (For those not in the know, Sophie the Succubus is Reaper's mascot.) This is the time of year for Reaper forumites to give a little holiday cheer to each other. Unlike most of the exchanges we do on the forums, this will have two categories - miniature and gift exchange and gift-only exchange. Signups will run from October 5th to October 15, with the assignments going out by the 19th (so those who are going to ReaperCon can have a shopping list). If you've never done an exchange before, how it works is like this: Everyone who is interested PMs me with the questionnaire below filled out. The organizers (fanguad, robinh) then match you with a person to whom you will send your gift/mini, and another person from whom you will receive a gift/mini from in return (sometimes it's the same person). Halfway through the exchange, you'll need to send the organizers a WIP. You have until the deadline to send your gift/mini out. That's pretty much it, feel free to ask questions in this thread, or PM them to me. This exchange is based on trust. Please be respectful of the fact that someone else is investing their time, money and energy into painting a mini for you. I am simply the organizer, but I will do everything I can to make sure that everyone who paints a miniature receives one. The Rules (tl;dr version) Gifts should be primarily new, Reaper-branded presents. Exchanging painted miniatures is optional. Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM. Painters must send the organizers a WIP of their mini by December 1st. The deadline for non-painters to mail their items is December 15th. The deadline for painters is January 15th. Full Rules Decide whether you are doing gift and miniature exchange or gift-only exchange. "Gifts" are Reaper paints, unpainted miniatures, or other Reaper painting supplies. Recommended dollar value of gifts is $25 or less. The miniature exchange is where you paint a Reaper miniature for someone and mail it to them. If you want to paint more than one miniature, you may do so. Reaper minis are the focus. If you want to paint more than one miniature, you may do so. If you wish to include other gifts for your recipient, you may do so, but please keep them small. The focus of the exchange should be a Reaper product. Fill out the appropriate sections of the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM. Please fill out the current version of the questionnaire, Please don't just send an old one, as questions may have changed. Please don't contact your partner unless they have listed themselves as okay with contact. I've included it on the questionnaire, so you'll know who wants to keep it secret and who doesn't. In order to encourage people to start painting early, you will need to post a Work In Progress (WIP) image of your mini to either this thread, or as a reply to your organizer, by December 1st. The mini should be at least base-coated by this time. If you don't post a WIP by this point, I may have to demote you to gift-only or drop you from the exchange. Please don't make me do this. Try really hard to get your miniature out by the deadline. Let an organizer know if you are going to be late. In the past some people have wanted to send food - please verify allergens, etc. with your partner before proceeding. If you are mailing internationally and plan to send more than just miniatures/paint, you must contact your recipient to get any "bonus items" approved. We don't want any trouble with customs. As an example, plant matter or powders can cause a lot of trouble. If you want to participate but acquiring Reaper minis is a problem, please contact me first. The organizers (fanguad, robinh) can help facilitate any anonymous conversations you want to have with your partner. Have fun! Deadline The deadline for mailing gifts is December 15th. The deadline for mailing exchange miniatures is January 15th, but it's even better if you can get them out by Christmas. Assignments Deadline The organizers will send the assignments out in about two weeks (October 18th). Please let me know if you're interested by the 15th. I can't make any guarantees if you're late, but I will try to make arrangements. Exchange Assistant robinh will be helping me run this exchange.

    Secret Sophie for SGHawkins09

    So, I got SGHawkins for my Secret Sophie. She said she would be starting Curse of Strahd soon, so I made Strahd... Happy Vampire is Happy! Also, i did a couple "Spell Effects" like this Dancing Magma Sword! And a pair of the new WizKids unpainted minis. I chose the Dragonborn female Fighters set because Dragonborn are hard to find equivilents for outside the official minis and I wanted to try out painting a few of them for future referance. I really like the effect I made with the first's Fire Sword. The mini's Fire sword is made from clear plastic so I used Tamiya Clear "Paint" to shade it and a little bit of Sword steel paint to make it look like the sword is on fire but that it still is metal underneeth. The second Dragonborn was a challenge from SGHawkins to "Try something new" so, I tried Non-Metalic Metal! I used the Copper/Bronze triad from the Bones 3 Kickstarter to attempt it. It came out okay I think, but I can do better in the future. Also, had fun with the Fire and Ice Axes. SGHawkins, please post pictures of the items I included too. i did not get to take any pictures of the gifts as I was ill until yesterday evening. GF

    Secret Sophie 2017

    The Mini I received tonight was from my Secret Sophie painting partner for 2017 JAY. The subject matter was a surprise to me and I must say he is very cute! Although based on his facial expression he does not appreciate being called cute! Jay has delivered me an excellent bit of cheer to me this night, whose space suit matches the frigid weather we have been having! It could have been made from ice! I present 8004 Mousling Space Commander on his ship defending it from space pirates/cats?? (Notice the focus on that face ... this is what i get for calling him cute) and a better view of those shoulder emblems you may have noticed (or maybe not) he is facing two different directions on the stand ... That's because he came off in transit.. must have been some rough hyper space jumps! Much appreciated Jay and He is my first SPACE MARINE!

    Oathsworn Owlbear Chick for Twitter Exchange

    So, I'm a part of a Bi-Monthly Twitter Secret Santa'like Exchange called #BoxofManyThings! I'm doing Miniatures for both of the organizers of it and this is one of them. The individual in question goes by the Handle, owlbare on twitter and uses a Purple Owlbear as his Avatar. So I chose to do up a Cute little Owlbear for him in his signature Colors. These are actually his photos since I forgot to take any! Anywho, hope you enjoy:) GF

    Artist Trading Cards

    Artist Trading Cards Some of us are playing around creating hand-made Artist Trading Cards and swapping them via the mail. ATCs are hand drawn or painted cards using markers, pencil, chalk, ink etc, on standard playing card sized pieces of paper (or other materials sufficiently flat enough to fit into a card-sleeve). Technical details: Finished size is: 2.5" x 3.5" (64 mm × 89 mm) — this is the size of a standard playing card. This thread is for showing off the cards created for this exchange. Rules for this thread: The recipient should be the first one to see each card. Please post an image of the card only after the recipient has confirmed they have seen it. Senders, recipients, or both are encouraged to post pix of the cards. _________________ Participants in the first round: DogBL, Sirithiliel, Tarsemina, Morihalda, TGP, Pingo, Inarah, & Tarsemina Participants in the second round: Pcktlnt, Jay, djizomdjinn, Morihalda, TGP, Pcklnt, Inarah
  11. This was painted as my gift to @Talae for the Summer Exchange 2017. The criteria of interest was steampunk or water, with a demonstration of NMM. The Automaton fit the NMM criteria well, and is mostly steampunk, so I ran with in. The orange parts are supposed to be copper. This is the first time I've tried a NMM copper and used a Scale75 NMM set. Thoughts? Comments and Critiques welcome.
  12. Got my base coats on and a top glaze on the back..

  14. Finally remembered to post these up. I got minibart's name for the Spring Exchange. I'd been hoping to get him since he sent me an awesome fig last year. He was looking for something Victorian and/or Steampunk. I went through a number of idea about what I wanted to do, wasted far too much time on elaborate plans, and finally settled on a slightly simpler plan, and still managed to be late sending it..... With the Lord and Dame I wanted to tie them together with some cross over of colour. Hopefully that was somewhat successful. The Lord came out fiarly well, I though. I'm not sure if what I was trying with the hat came across as well as it could of. I was really happy with the vest, though it may not show up well in the picture. I used Ruby Red to highlight Gothic Crimson, which gave it a nice satiny shine. Apparently all my shots of his back are blurry, and he's on a different continent now. But dark grey coat of light grey pants, not too exciting anyway. The Dame is a lovely figure and a joy to paint. I had a great time painting her, other that realizing that I'm missing at least one paint in each green triad I wanted to use.... And whenever I paint anything that could be considered Steampunk-y I love to throw in a West Wind Infernium Hound.

    This is the mini that I painted for Fanguad for the Spring Exchange. Got it out late due to life interfering and had to be satisfied with a more simple paint job then originally planned. Please excuse the photo quality, I had no time to get everything out to take proper ones.
  16. This is the model I received from @hiddenone32 as part of the Spring 2017 Exchange. Here's some better pics that don;t include my grubby mitts Great piece. Great paint job. Thanks.
  17. Figure we might as well open this Fall 2015 Exchange Chatter thread so we don't start chattering in the official thread. Anyhow, those of you looking at this thread that haven't joined in previous Exchanges should give it a shot. It's only 1 painted figure and you have 2 months to get it done and sent out to your random partner that Fan or myself assign you. Really, they are a lot of fun! Commence chatter!

  19. Welcome everyone, to the 2016 Secret Sophie thread! What is Secret Sophie, you ask? Well, it's a lot like Secret Santa, with a more attractive (albeit more dangerous) delivery person! (For those not in the know, Sophie the Succubus is Reaper's mascot.) This is the time of year for Reaper forumites to give a little holiday cheer to each other. Unlike most of the exchanges we do on the forums, this will have two categories - miniature and gift exchange and gift-only exchange. Signups will run from October 1st to October 10, with the assignments going out around the 15th. If you've never done an exchange before, how it works is like this: Everyone who is interested PMs me with the questionnaire below filled out. The organizers (fanguad, SGHawkins09) then match you with a person to whom you will send your gift/mini, and another person from whom you will receive a gift/mini from in return (sometimes it's the same person). Halfway through the exchange, you'll need to send the organizers a WIP. You have until the deadline to send your gift/mini out. That's pretty much it, feel free to ask questions in this thread, or PM them to me. This exchange is based on trust. Please be respectful of the fact that someone else is investing their time, money and energy into painting a mini for you. I am simply the organizer, but I will do everything I can to make sure that everyone who paints a miniature receives one. The Rules (tl;dr version) Gifts should be primarily new, Reaper-branded presents. Exchanging painted miniatures is optional. Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM. Painters must send the organizers a WIP of their mini by December 1st. The deadline for non-painters to mail their items is December 15th. The deadline for painters is January 15th. Full Rules Decide whether you are doing gift and miniature exchange or gift-only exchange."Gifts" are Reaper paints, unpainted miniatures, or other Reaper painting supplies. Recommended dollar value of gifts is $25 or less. The miniature exchange is where you paint a Reaper miniature for someone and mail it to them. If you want to paint more than one miniature, you may do so. Non-Reaper items may be included, but the focus of this event is on Reaper items, so keep them in the minority. Fill out the appropriate sections of the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM. Please fill out the current version of the questionnaire, Please don't just send an old one, as questions may have changed. I am going to be a little stricter than normal about filling in all the questions and may send it back for clarification if you don't. Please don't contact your partner unless they have listed themselves as okay with contact. I've included it on the questionnaire, so you'll know who wants to keep it secret and who doesn't. In order to encourage people to start painting early, you will need to post a Work In Progress (WIP) image of your mini to either this thread, or as a reply to your organizer, by December 1st. The mini should be at least base-coated by this time. If you don't post a WIP by this point, I may have to demote you to gift-only or drop you from the exchange. Please don't make me do this. Try really hard to get your miniature out by the deadline. Let an organizer know if you are going to be late. In the past some people have wanted to send food - please verify allergens, etc. with your partner before proceeding. If you are mailing internationally and plan to send more than just miniatures/paint, you must contact your recipient to get any "bonus items" approved. We don't want any trouble with customs. As an example, plant matter or powders can cause a lot of trouble. The organizers (fanguad, SGHawkins09) can help facilitate any anonymous conversations you want to have with your partner. Have fun! Deadline The deadline for mailing gifts is December 15th. The deadline for mailing exchange miniatures is January 15th, but it's even better if you can get them out by Christmas. Assignments Deadline The organizers will send the assignments out in about two weeks (October 15th). Please let me know if you're interested by the 10th. I can't make any guarantees if you're late, but I will try to make arrangements. Exchange Assistant SGHawkins will be helping me run this exchange. She will coordinate and communicate with approximately half the participants. You can contact either of us if you have any questions or issues.

    TURN UNDEAD! - A Winter Exchange

    As I'm sure most of you do in these exchanges, I end up picking parts of the request to focus on. In this case I went with a winter base and OSL. Generally when we think of OSL we think of a mini painted with a zenithal light source and then the OSL is a secondary light source that colors part of the mini. I decided to do something different though and make the OSL my primary light source. Initially I wasn't going to have any secondary lighting, but that made things a bit boring from certain angles so I added in some moonlight. In the scene below the primary light source is the end of the staff. Anything illuminated by the staff I painted "normally," though with the highlights and shadows were orientated to it and not zenithal. Anything not lit by the staff is lit by desaturated "moonlight." For some reason I had difficulty getting the light balance correct on the photos but it's still pretty close. The mini itself. Here we start with normal colors: But as we get to her back the light desaturates until eventually the light source is blocked. Also, a bit of freehand. And a bit of milliput dust on the black base. It wiped off but I didn't redo the photo shoot. From the side you can see how I tried to put all of the highlights towards the staff with deeper shadows further away. The base. So far the battle has not gone well for the undead. I cut two of them apart so they could be caught in the moment of being blown apart. The inner light is a bit subtler on the armored skeleton. The eyes are so deep that you can only see the brightest parts from a very small angle. Now that I think about it I would have been better off to fill the sockets and freehand the surface. Ah well, for next time. : Here's probably the angles where you can really see the desturated vs lit areas best. And the top view. I don't currently have a way to do a light box for this angle on something this size so it is just sitting out on the table. I think these might have turned out the most color accurate though. I used some crackle medium to make the ice, and didn't realize that it did not adhere very well. My first drybrush took some of it off and I had to put it back in place. One thing I couldn't quite decide on was the cast shadows. Normally I just consider the scene to just end like it has been chopped off, but that leaves a gap of vertical snow in some places. Maybe I should have taken them down to the wooden base... I had initially planned on more freehand, but ran out of time. Thanks for looking.
  22. Welcome to the 2016 Summer Miniature Exchange! This is the thread for coordinator announcements, questions, letting people know that packages have be mailed or received, and other "official"-ish stuff. You can also use this thread to talk, get suggestions, and show off the awesome mini that your partner sent you. If you've never done an exchange before, how it works is like this: Everyone who is interested PMs me with the questionnaire below filled out (please don't just send an old one, as the questions may have changed). I then match you with a person whom you will paint a mini for, and a second person whom you will receive a painted mini from (sometimes it's the same person). You have until the deadline to send your mini out (please try really hard to do this, though we understand if sometime life gets in the way). That's pretty much it, feel free to PM me with questions. The organizers will do our best to keep things running smoothly, and we ask that everyone keep us up to date with your progress on a regular basis. You can send a PM or post in this thread, even just a "I'm still procrastinating" message is helpful to know you haven't forgotten or disappeared. For this exchange, we're moving to three months of painting time. This should be more than enough time for even the slowest or busiest painter - get started early so you don't keep your partner waiting. Signups will run from May 15th to May 25th, with assignments going around June 1st. Miniatures should be mailed by August 31st. How does it work? (tl;dr version) Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM. Paint your partner a mini and mail it to them by August 31st. Full Rules Reaper minis are the focus. If you want to paint more than one miniature, you may do so. If you wish to include other gifts for your recipient, you may do so, but please keep them small. There is no hard and fast rule, but keeping the value less than the price of a single miniature is a good rule of thumb. The focus of the exchange should be a Reaper product. Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM. Please fill out the current version of the questionnaire, as some of the questions may have changed. Please don't contact your partner unless they have listed themselves as okay with contact. I've included it on the questionnaire, so you'll know who wants to keep it secret and who doesn't.

Deadline The deadline to mail out miniatures for this exchange will be three months from when assignments are sent out, on August 31st. Assignments Deadline The organizers will send the assignments out in about two weeks (June 1st). Please let me know if you're interested by the 25th. I can't make any guarantees if you're late, but I will try to make arrangements. Exchange Assistant SGHawkins09 will be helping me run this exchange.

  23. When I fill out my questionnaire for the exchanges, I like to give lots of options for people to choice from. For example, I mention that I have CAV:SO figures (and hope to play someday....). One of the other things I mention is that I collect rabbit minis (it all goes back to the Doom Bunny...). I never really thought anyone would ever combine those two.... What an awesome and creative piece Kangaroorex came up with! I love it!! (Although I may never look at a Starhawk VI the same way....) I don't know where he found the little car but it is perfect.
  24. I got Keianna's name for the Summer Exchange (if you don't know about the exchanges, go check out the Mini Exchanges & Paint Contests section of the forums!). ​One of the things she was looking for were Steampunk heroes or villains. I've been painting a fair amount of Steampunk lately and quite enjoy it, but wasn't sure what to paint. So I loaded up my cart with assorted Reaper Steampunk figs that I hadn't already done and waited for them to arrive. Once they got here I was really taken with Smedley. It's really a wonderful sculpt with lots of interesting details. So he got painted up. I really like this fig, so much so that I have another one in my cart waiting for me to finalize my order. He seemed to need some more vibrant colours than I usually use, so really pushed me, but I had a great time painting him. I was very happy that OneBoot was doing her Khanjira at the same time, or I might have forgotten I had a bottle of Witchcraft Purple. I turned out to be (to me) the perfect colour. I still haven't decided if he is a hero or a villain though....
