Recommended Posts

I have to admit I did the same, but then I have back-up on making sure I get them all out

Just to clarify, I will only assign you multiple partners if people show up late and need partners.  Trying to get a good match up is hard.  Trying to do it when different people have different number of miniatures they'll paint and multiple partners... way too hard.

*bouncing in*  me too!  put me into the list. :)

Also there were some amazing diorama's an bases shown in the last exchange -can anyone point me to some how to's for making them?

 

Make sure to PM Fanguad. Just go to the first post in the thread, copy the information about the miniature exchange stuff, paste it into a PM with him and answer those questions.

 

Do you have a WIP thread somewhere? I'd be happy to talk to you about dioramas, vignettes, and bases over there because I've already derailed this thread enough.

PM sent to fanguard!- no WIP yet. -need to make one. got a bunch of unpainted minis and trying to figure out how to make a godzilla mini.

Isn't Uber attempting to be Fanguad's assistant? Is this the beginning of his plan to match with siri? :P

I'm sorry to say I won't be participating. While I *could* paint a mini and mail it abroad, ridiculous laws of import in my country means actually receiving a package would be quite expensive on my side as well, and perhaps even not allowed by Customs.

 

I might jump in with some little trinket and ask Fanguad to assign me half a dozen Reaperites to send them out, however. It is an idea I've toying around for some time already.

I'm in.

 

A suggestion, could we have the deadline August 29th just so we get a full 3 months of painting time after finding out our victims partners?

Won't work - part of the point of me having an assistant is that we pick each other's partner.  This is mostly to maintain the surprise, but also to prevent accusations (not that I think they would occur) of "taking the good minis for myself."

Yup, I figured as much, but like to joke around that I'd cherry-pick Siri's work. In reality, I'm happy with getting things from all you fine artists. This is just another fun thing we do on the forum together and it allows us to get to see things from each other up close in person rather than through the computer screen.

 

I also just love to paint for other people.

It seems that the # of participants keeps growing with every exchange. Maybe we'll hit 50 people this time!

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      Examples: fantasy, sci-fi, monsters, PCs, women, undead, demons, etc
      What do you like painting the most? bugbears and orcs
      Notes: if possible, the organizers will try to match you up with someone who wants this thing, but if we can't we'll fall back to what you "can" paint

      -Miniature Information: Inbound-
      What do you want to receive?  Fantasy enemies for my players to fight!  Monsters or human(ish) are both fine.
      Examples: mouslings, necromancers, warriors, dual-wielders, etc

      Notes: Reaper miniatures come in Bones, resin and metal

      Notes: If you're asking for a miniature to be used in army, you can ask your partner to match the colors.
      What style of basing would you prefer? Plain or basic - I will use these miniatures in my PFRPG games.
      Examples: round or square preference? Unbased, plain base (simple black base), basic base (standard sized base with some scenic elements), or scenic base (fancy base not really suitable for gaming)
      Please give your partner some inspiration, especially if you have very few preferences above.
      I'm starting the PFRPG Adventure Path "Jade Regent" soon.  Try painting non-human skin tones.  My favorite color is blue.  "Spring has sprung!"
      Notes: Consider this a non-binding word of inspiration for your partner.  If they're stuck and can't figure out what to paint, maybe this will help them.  No need to repeat your preferences above.  Your partner may ignore this question if they already have an idea from the your previously answered questions.
      Examples: Are there any books or movies you've enjoyed recently?  Is there a challenge or technique you'd like your partner to try?  How about some song lyrics or a quote from a book?

      -Personal Information-
      Will you ship internationally? Yes
      Notes: Be aware that postage costs will be higher than domestic postage.  If you mail internationally, you will need permission from your partner to include other gift items so that we don't run afoul of customs.  Most participants in these exchanges are located in the USA.
      Would you be willing to have multiple exchange partners? Yes, I love painting!
      Notes: If yes, specify if there is a limit (though it is unlikely we'll ask you to do more than 2)
      Would you like to know who is painting for you? No
      Examples: Yes, No, No Preference
      Notes: If you say yes, your preference will be communicated to your partner.  It will be up to them to contact you.
      Would you like your partner to know who is painting for them? No
      Examples: Yes, No, No Preference
      Notes: You can contact them directly to work out details or ask for advice.  We will attempt to match people with similar preferences, but can't guarantee this is the case.
      Is there anybody you would prefer not to paint for?  (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.
