Summer 2014 Miniature Exchange

Recommended Posts

Actually I started doing the WIP as a way to slow myself down so I could make sure to get it done right. Otherwise there would be lots of minis done in a week or a single day

Ok, I'm in.  I trust my fellow painters at the New England Paint Day will keep me motivated (beat me) and on target.

 

Plus in the unlikely event that I don't have something my recipient desires on hand, it's an excuse to buy more minis.  It's a win/win!

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?

 

I would take that pic then hang it on my artists wall.... Just sayin... :devil:

 

 

 

Oh and I'm in again too, forgot to mention that....

That's generally my problem >.> Blow through them too fast, without taking the time on them that they deserve

Pm sent a while ago, but I'm in. Fangaud, if you didn't get my PM let me know; sent from my phone so who knows?

 

Won't have much time to paint before nearer the deadline, but then I'd procrastinate anyway, so that's no problem. Woohoo, minis exchange!

I'm planning a trip to the Dallas/ Denton area in July so I may not get started until I come back from that trip... (and having visited a certain mini store to get my exchange mini)

 

 

I'll still have it done in time though.

Oh, hey, I actually found the thread on time this time.  This was a lot of fun last time I did it, and I definitely traded up with the dwarves Froggy sent me.  It'll also encourage me to actually get something finished this time.

I'm in as well. Chronic lurker but love painting for others as well. Most of my minis are painted and given away.

      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!
