I'm not going to restrict anything anybody wants to paint. If you want to ask the person I've paired you with, you can PM them to see if they have a branding preference. But to my knowledge, we have people running across several different ranges for our little gathering :;):

**** In retrospect, my deviousness may be entirely uncalled for - since Reaper does let us play here and is extremely tolerant of our various shenanigans. So, given that, I will be painting a Reaper-only figure for this exchange and subsequent ones organized here. Seems only fair to Reaper.

Alright, I've got just about everything the way I like it, so I decided I would post our first pictures of the event! Here he is, Sir Baxter, Knight of Awesome! A few final little touchups and I should be good to mail him off today or tomorrow.

Awsome! Great job Recruittons. Lots of detail on the base.

BTW, who got me :lol: .

 

I'll help if there are any stray minis that need to be painted and sent out. Just let me know. Mines in the works as to and is a conversion as well :blush::B): .

Thanks guys! I appreciate the kind words. I worked almost as hard on the base as I did on the mini. :lol:

 

So, I think I've learned quite a bit about organizing exchanges thus far, and I'm writing a few more questions into the initial questionnaire that should make the next one more fun and to smooth out some wrinkles I encountered during the setup.

 

What do you guys think of this?

 

Name:

Address:

 

What you can paint (monsters, PCs, women, undead, demons, etc):

What you want (Mouslings, necromancers, warriors, dual-wielders, etc):

What you DON'T want (gross, nudity, undead, kobolds, animals):

Material you want to receive? Bones, Resin, Metal, or Any

Scenic base,, simple base, plain base, or unbased?:

 

Will you ship internationally?:

Would you like to remain anonymous from your recipient?:

Would you be willing to paint and receive multiple miniatures?:

 

It takes away a lot of the ambiguity away and allows for me to announce the names of the people who don't really care about their mini being a surprise.

 

What do you think?

@Recruittons: I like the questionairre. It gets a lot of the important issues out of the way at the start. Also, you should definitely include yourself even though your organizing the exchange. What fun is it otherwise? And I think we can trust you not to make Patrick paint yours.... I think. ;)

Honestly, I kind of enjoy managing the logistics. Even without the painting aspect, I honestly enjoy seeing this thing happen. Makes me feel good!

I'll be honest, I don't even know who Patrick is :lol:! Is that someone in the exchange? The only professional painter I know of participating is Martin. All I know of everyone's work is what I've seen here on this forum.

My bad. Wrong artist. I think I'm thinking of the sculptor, not the painter. I is dumb. :D

That base look pretty awesome on the knight. I was pondering how much to do with my base and I am now decided. :)

Would you like to remain anonymous from your recipient?:

 

Part of a mini exchange is the surprise. You don't know who's painting for you, or what you're getting until it arrives. Knowing ahead of time is a bit like knowing what you're getting for Christmas before you unwrap it.

 

I think it should remain anonymous, and would prefer that whomever drew my name not say anything about it until I receive it.

      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.
