2015 Summer Exchange - Chatter thread

Recommended Posts

Hubby and I received an awesome burrowing horror and marsh troll (Hubby dubbed him "dinosaur guy") yesterday. I am embarrassed to say that I don't remember the name on the package, I opened it right after I woke up and Hubby ushered me out the door for D&D just after. Sadly, neither of them had the chance to smush any PCs last night, but I'm sure they will get their time to shine Soon

 

I'll post up some pictures this weekend. assuming I can get Hubby to stop playing with them... :lol:

I have gotten my exchange mini from Jasper (and it is awesome), and I have finished mine for Kharsin!

 

Just need to photograph them both. Hopefully I'll be able to get that done tomorrow!

 

I have felt better today, and was actually able to put a couple hours in the painting chair today... and required no nap!!! This is 10 times better than the day before! But I need to take it day by day.

YAY!!!! So happy you are starting to feel better. I'm sure Kharsin will love what you send to him. Just let me know when you've shipped so I can update the spreadsheet please.

Hey, in the Chaos of Bones 3, I got some awesome minis from Terminalmancer. I'll have to snap some pics this weekend, and I need to do some repairs on the paint job, but they're EXACTLY the kind of minis I wanted.

Yes, pictures! (I have some I need to post, but would love to do a failure analysis.) And it's okay, we know nothing can compare with the latest KS update. Hope you enjoy them! I'm particularly happy with how the wizard turned out...

You know...he's the only one that didn't chip.

 

I love the wraiths, I've been meaning to pick them up for a while. Now I have a set of four (one from the BoGW). And with your instructions on how to fix the damage, you've given me the whole paint scheme, so I can paint mine to match.

 

I'm pretty familiar with the back catalogue, and even I'M going to have to look again to see if I can find the knight. I absolutely don't recognize him.

Moved over here to respond since the other thread is for arrivals/departures.
 

Still patiently waiting.  I hope there's chocolate involved!

 

Yeah, I was told this weekend will be when they can ship to you. I've also passed along the chocolate request.  :poke:  ::P:

I'll poke at him on FB. He's been super busy the last week.

Mine was finally finished yesterday and ready to go out today...and then my neck seized up so I couldn't drive, and my hubby didn't get home until after the post office closed.  :down: If my neck is still too stiff tomorrow, I'll send it with him to drop off before work. I swear it's like the universe conspires against me right at the end of these things, every time.  <_<

 

Of course, that wouldn't happen if I just started painting sooner....  :ik_oops:

 

Huzzah!

I'm glad you like it! I have a bunch of pictures of this so I"ll post a Show Off thread soon. I saw your inspiration of "an unlikely superhero" and this is what happened...

 

ETA: Don't worry about being late, I'm very understanding and patient.

      My exchange partner this year was Fealron and one of the ideas suggested was a new enemy or villain to throw against his players.  I had this guy on hand and wondered if a giant werewolf would fit the bill: 
       
      14030: Vasyl, Rageclaw Alpha 


       
      While I was painting that I came across these guys and they just begged to be henchmen: 
       

      The one in the middle I believe is an old Grenadier, the others are clix. 
       
      Meanwhile, back at the ranch I did a little digging and discovered that Fealron has a set of DwarvenForge, so I felt compelled to paint these as a gift.  It's all molded from Hirst Arts molds (except the barrel mimic).  I hope they provide hours of fun play.

      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!
