2015 Summer Exchange - Official Thread


Recommended Posts

With the Spring Exchange winding down, its time to start thinking about the next exchange.  As before, there will be about two months of painting time.  Signups will run from May 1st to May 10th, with assignments going around the 15th.  Miniatures should be mailed by July 15th.

I'm posting from ReaperCon, so I wont be around the next few days to answer questions, but I'll answer when I get back.


If you've never done an exchange before, how it works is like this: Everyone who is interested PMs me with the questionnaire below filled out. I then match you with a person whom you will paint a mini for, and a second person whom you will receive a painted mini from (sometimes it's the same person). You have until the deadline to send your mini out (please try really hard to do this, though we understand if sometime life gets in the way). That's pretty much it, feel free to PM me with questions.


How does it work?  (tl;dr version)

  • Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM.
  • Paint your partner a mini and mail it to them by July 15th.
  • This thread is for official business only. Use the chatter thread for random conversations.
Full Rules
  • Reaper minis are the focus. If you want to paint more than one miniature, you may do so. If you wish to include other gifts for your recipient, you may do so, but please keep them small. There is no hard and fast rule, but keeping the value less than the price of a single miniature is a good rule of thumb. The focus of the exchange should be a Reaper product.
  • Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM. Please fill out the current version of the questionnaire, as some of the questions have changed. I am going to be a little stricter than normal about filling in all the questions and may send it back for clarification if you don't.
  • Please don't contact your partner unless they have listed themselves as okay with contact. I've included it on the questionnaire, so you'll know who wants to keep it secret and who doesn't.
  • If you want to keep your participation a secret, make sure that you don't post in here or the chatter thread.
  • Try really hard to get your miniature out by the deadline. Let an organizer know if you are going to be late.
  • This thread is for official business/discussion only. That includes stuff like questions for me, or updates about sending and receiving packages, but discussions about what you're painting or how awesome the mini you received was should go in the chatter thread.
  • If you are mailing internationally and plan to send more than just miniatures/paint, you must contact your recipient to get any "bonus items" approved. We don't want any trouble with customs.
  • The organizers (fanguad, ub3r_n3rd) can help facilitate any anonymous conversations you want to have with your partner.
  • Have fun!

The deadline to mail out miniatures for this exchange will be two months from when assignments are sent out, on July 15th.


Assignments Deadline

The organizers will send the assignments out in about two weeks (May 15th).  Please let me know if you're interested by the 10th.  I can't make any guarantees if you're late, but I will try to make arrangements.


Exchange Assistant

ub3r_n3rd will be helping me run this exchange.  He will coordinate and communicate with approximately half the participants.  You can contact either of us if you have any questions or issues.
