2015 Fall Exchange - Chatter Thread

Recommended Posts

Are people putting up show off threads for their exchange minis?

 

If so, could you post them here? Cause I would love to see what people are getting!

Mine is in my .sig for "Autumn Hope" which went out to TiniestRhombus! I also posted in this thread earlier, but it's back a few pages.

Sent off to my shipper on Saturday, so should be sent out in Monday's parcels!

Now the waiting, and crossed fingers and toes, that it'll get there in one piece. And it's really hard to put my boots on with crossed toes.

Haven't heard anything about the one coming to me, but then again my request was pretty...unique. It's entirely possible the individual painting for me may need more time.

 

When's Secret Sophie?

When's Secret Sophie?

 

If we follow the established schedule, signups would run from Nov 1st to Nov 7th, people would get partners by the 15th. Then that'd give everyone until January 15, 2016 to paint and/or gift exchange.

I'll be contacting my partner to let them know what the deal is with their figure...turns out removing glass tube from a figures hand isn't as easy as it sounds....(why did I have to go for the "it needs to be translucent" thing...)

Sorry that you are still having trouble with that figure. Hopefully you can get it figured out and sent out soon.

The modification that required the glass broke off when I was working to pack it. The glass is STILL in the -redacted- hand/metal and I can't just glue another piece one, it would look bad and be even more unstable, so I need to find a way to mill out the rest of the glass, without destroying the rest of the surrounding metal. On the plus side, I may have an even better effect figured out for it now.

Errg, The USPS is now officially got me miffed. My package to my partner was supposed to get there on Saturday and it's Monday and still not there yet and it won't even tell me where it's at. 

On the other hand the Canadians were very fast getting my parcel to the US and I can't wait to see what's in it!!!

I was unable to get pics of the ones Tesk and I sent out. My cameras (both of them) went into hiding until after I shipped them...

      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!
