Summer 2014 Miniature Exchange

Recommended Posts

I've never painted for someone other than my husband and a few of his players, so I'm very excited ^^ 

I'm in the about the same boat except swap mother instead of husband and make that my players. I'm the GM of our merry band. I am looking forward to this and hope I don't disappoint. Especially as I am still new to basing minis, but will try anything as it sounds like a great way to practice basing as well.

 

It seems that the # of participants keeps growing with every exchange. Maybe we'll hit 50 people this time!

If not the next time I know I will be getting my mother in as a separate entry

I think that since Uber called dibs on Siri that Siri should mail him a picture of a mini that actually she sends to someone else. Would that be too cruel or just cruel enough?

It would be evil. He will discover soon enough who he got. Besides as he pointed out it is more getting pretty things more than anything. Plus getting a gift of a painted miniature

This is why Tiamacrab is so beloved. She draws a line for how cruel she is to others so long as they are not evil clowns

It's more about having fun than anything. I like to joke about getting Siri's stuff, but in reality I actually like painting up things for people more than anything. This is probably why I always paint up figures for my group before I do them for myself. I like them to have "pretty things." I also enjoy the challenge of bettering myself with each and every piece I do and when it's for someone else I try harder to get it looking good.

Interesting. You finish the mini before you even know who it is going to? You must be very good indeed or a Time Lord

I'm just sayin' it's possible. This one is, I think, my best work to date, and it would be a shame to let it go to waste in my box'o'minis.

 

Worst case scenario: Someone gets a BONUS! mini.

      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!
