I have a figure picked out and have started cleaning it up. That's about as far as I'll get for a while. But at least it is in the queue.

Alright, so things advanced much quicker than expected. I managed to sculpt the base, I made some foam rubber flocking (basically I took a foam mattress pad, tore some bits off, wet them, and put them through the blender), and created a foam pad to protect the mini during transport. This thing should be sent off tomorrow!

It's like Christmas, or my birthday! What will I get?! C'mon, you can tell me!

 

(Let's see if Inarah can hold out longer than my wife on not telling me what I'm getting) :P

started in on mine yesterday... it was a great excuse to go hit up my local game shop. I usually get the evil eye from the wife if she knows i'm headed that way... was able to spend a few hours last night cleaning, basing, priming and was able to get a good face put on... :)

Not gonna tell. Nope.

 

Actually, I don't think I could, since as far as I can tell, you're not the guy I'm painting for. ::P:

Wait, we're not painting for each other? Huh...I was under the impression we were. So is this more like a circle of exchanges vs. a simple back and forth?

Well it's easier to work a circle since what people are willing/ able to paint might not be identical. To over simplify...

 

Person A: wants superheroes, will paint monsters

Person B: wants monsters, will paint anything fantasy.

 

No match... But throw in

Person C: wants Pathfinder human fig, will paint anything humanoid

 

And suddenly you have a ring.

Yep! Argentee has the right of it. Also, it allows for odd numbers of people. If it was a direct back and forth, I would need to have an even number of participants for pairings to work. This way, we could have any number of people and still work around it during initial assignments. It does make for a closed ring once the painting party starts, but I've got backup people who are willing to do direct exchanges with latecomers, so I should be able to work them into the fun!

 

Speaking of which, anybody that wants to be a backup for 1-on-1 exchanges with any latecomers, let me know and I'll put you into me queue. I have two people confirmed for it right now, but anybody else willing to paint and receive another mini, let me know and I'll mark you down.

      So, I'm working on a miniature for my Box of Many Things exchange partner, more commonly known as a "Thinger" among those long time participants. This happens on the Twitters and you can search for it by sticking one those hashtag/pound sign/number sign thingies in front of BoxofManyThings in the search thingy there. Basically, it is like a Secret Santa type thing for geeks and nerds that happens every couple months. Sign ups for the next one should start near the end of October, if you are interested.
       
      Anywho, my "Thinger" is interested in, among other things, Medusas. So, since I'm kind of not up to much due to a severe lack of AC at my place, I've decided to try to distract myself from the fact I am alternating between melting and immolating at this time by making a custom mini and painting it. Also, attempt to chronicle it 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.
