Well, since I joined this forum a bit late in the game, I missed out on that neat figure exchange thread.

 

I was thinking that since Summer is now over, and we're hitting the Autumn swing, perhaps starting a new one wouldn't be a bad thing, so here it is! I'm also volunteering to organize it, too!

 

Post here first

 

Once we have enough people for this to be viable, I'll request you to PM me with:

(Since I've never done this before, I'll blatantly steal Inarah's info request from the Summer thread...)

 

Your Real Name

Your Mailing address

an idea of what you can paint (ie: human, females, monsters, "anything")

an idea of what you'd like to receive (ie: Darkreach, undead, mouselings, "no preference")

NB: negative answers like "Please, no mouslings", or "no display base" are also helpful

Material preference: Metal, resin, bones, or any

 

When I get the info, I'll match people together and PM the info you need for your recipient by October

 

I was thinking that getting the exchange minis out by the end of November/beginning of December was reasonable. There are several holidays in there, but it's also about 2 months, so everyone who wants to participate should be able to finish and mail a mini in that time frame.

 

So, any interest?

I'm in. I'd rather not post my address in an open forum though. Here is the rest:

 

I Can/Will Paint: pretty much anything. to keep the cost fair I'd suggest we both purchase something roughly the same size.

I'd Like To Recieve: whatever you are most comfortable painting. Something practical that can get used for an RPG would be most appreciated. It would also give me an excuse to show off your work whenever I can find an excuse to use your model, lol.

Negatives: No mouselings, scenic bases, or undead. I have a HUGE inventory of undead.

Material Prefs: Metal or Bones. I'd also prefer it be a Reaper product.

@Girot. When we get enough people for this to, I'll just ask that you send your info to me, and I can relay it to the person who will be sending their mini to you!

Hi guys.

I'm new to the forums as a poster but I have been reading them for some time now. Sorry it took so long to introduce myself.

So how will this work exactly? Will the two pared individules send each other a mini they would like painted, or just paint a random mini (with in the others preferance range) and send it as an exchange?

It sounds like a nice friendly gesture between artist.

Basically, you are assigned to another painter who will paint something for you. You get to pick what it generally will be, but not the model specifically. Then that person will select a model within your parameters (based on the likes and dislikes you give me and I relay to them) and paint it up. Once they are done, they'll ship it your way! The person you are assigned to paint for will almost certainly not be the person painting your model, though. Hope that clarifies!

Usually its not a paired exchange. It's typically more circular. A paints for B paints for C etc so you don't know who is painting for you.

Awesome! Well I guess at this point we have enough interest for this to be a real thing! I'll send PMs to those who haven't sent me their information yet to get it from them.

 

I'll assign people on... shall we say October 8th. This coming Monday. Does this work? Or should I give it till the end of next week?

      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.
