2015 Fall Exchange - Chatter Thread

Recommended Posts

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!

Replying here so we don't clog up the Official Thread.

 

 


 

 

Still pondering. I can't paint yet so might wait for the next.

Plus I'm really slow at painting.

Only 1 painted figure (Reaper preferred) is required to take part. You'll have 2 months to do it. I hope you can join us. :)

Note: I have not finished a mini since August of 2006. Really think I can do one in 2 months?

I have several unfinished on my worktable that now I'm looking at and nitpicking and thinking "need to start over."

 

 

I think you can do one in 2 months, you'd be more motivated to finish for someone else. A deadline does wonders for a lot of people to get things accomplished!

 

Think on it a bit, I'm not trying to pressure you, but I think you'd have fun giving and receiving a painted figure.  ^_^

Just realized my date was off...

 

August 2003. Just before I found out I was pregnant with my first kid.

 

It's not motivation, but having the time. This is my busy season.

Cool, go to the Official Thread, fill out the form in a PM to Fanguad and we'll get you a partner to paint for and a partner to paint for you.  ^_^

Ahh, wow, well I hope things settle down for you soon.

 

I understand RL>painting/hobbies.

 

Maybe in a few months you'll decide to join us for the Secret Sophie exchange.  ::D:

This will be my second one!  Someday I'll get around to taking pics and posting the models I got from the Spring Exchange. :P

Definitely a lot of fun, not only in receiving the mini, but finding a mini and painting it for someone really drives you to try harder on your best techniques as well as try new techniques. I have really enjoyed these!

This will be my first exchange! I am excited to see who I paint for and what they are hoping for! And then it will be so fun to see what I get!

      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!
