2015 Fall Exchange - Chatter Thread

Recommended Posts

I am so very close to being finished..... but it might have to wait until after I move! Which I do not want.

 

But I can see myself rushing bits of it... And what time I could have to paint it is being absorbed by other things (Like work stuff that came up, and the flu, and stuff) but I WILL FINISH it.... soonâ„¢. Unfortunately.

I've received my mini(s) from Bonwirn!! I was rather puzzled as to why I'd gotten such a big box, since I wasn't expecting any Goodwill boxes....

 

He painted me not just two minis, but a whole awesome diorama!!! I loves it so much! :wub: And he also included a whole pile of other minis too!

 

I only had time to snap a few super quick pictures, since I'm heading out of town in an hour, but I'll upload them tonight.

 

Thank you, thank you so much!! I'm speechless! Very much worth waiting for! ::D:

 

Huzzah!

I'm finally able to upload the pictures now. Check out the awesome!!

You can't tell from the picture, but the base is actually in two parts; it barely wouldn't fit in the box! I will be able to glue it back together easily, though. The benches, pedestal and statue are all separate and movable, but because they're all painted so well, you can't even tell!

 

Here's a different shot that gets the whole backdrop:

BUT WAIT IT GETS BETTER

 

He actually included a SECOND statue mini, so I can swap them out as needed....

Oh, I'm gonna have some fun with this!  :devil:

 

 

 

And here's a quick group shot of all the minis he included! I'm feeling quite overwhelmed by his generosity! :wub:

Sorry I don't have a better picture of them, I was in a terrible rush when I took it. They're all Reaper minis, though; several of these I think Mr. Boot is going to have fun with, like the giant scarab, or the big scary worm thing. :lol:

 

Thank you again, Bonwirn!!!!! :bday:

 

Huzzah!

Oneboot,

 

I am sorry it took so long to get that finished and sent out.  Real life has been pretty hectic lately.  The extra minis were my apology  :)

It's really okay, I hope Fanguad passed along my messages that I would rather you have fun and not be stressed over it than to rush and try to mail it on time. :) Real life happens, it always seems to do so to me when I have an exchange I'm trying to get out the door! So thank you again, it's a beautiful piece!

 

That's a cool exchange gift.

 

@Bonwirn: Who makes the diorama pieces?  Are they available at retail?

 

It's made up of lots of Hirst Art blocks glued together! I don't know about retail availability, Bonwirn can tell you more. I know he has at least a few of the molds, though. :)

 

Huzzah!

The diorama is a modified dungeon dressings piece from the Hirst Arts Gothic Dungeon set.  PM sent to Serenity regarding availability of Hirst Arts pieces.

I came home this weekend to a lovely vignette from Kharsin. I love it Goldmoon and Riverwind are awesome and painted so nicely. Thank you again Kharsin for the piece, it will be displayed in my game room miniature display cabinet for all to see.

 

Kharsin already made a show off thread but here are the photos I took.

It may have been late, but I'm glad you were able to paint it up.  And it's a fantastic looking mini, too.

      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!
