Any interest in a new round of trading cards?
What is an artist trading card (ATC)?
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.
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!

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.
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!

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:)
