Apologies to my exchange partner who sent me my mini! I've been remiss in remembering to post pictures and that I did actually receive it! Been a long couple of weeks at work, sorry.

Anyway, I'm about to go off on a trip but I did want to at least post this one, hopefully it came out ok:

Kangaroorex, have you posted pictures?  Because all this talk is making me very interested.

I am afraid if you want pictures, Jasper will have to post them.  I my haste to get it out the door, I neglected to take any. 

 

I will say that it is the most unique interpretation of a rabbit chasing a carrot that I have ever come up with...

I'll snap some sometime this week.  And yes, most unique.   Arthur's knights wouldn't have stood a chance against that bunny, Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch or not....

I got my mini today!  A very nice archer from Teskeria.

 

Also, my partner bailed right around the time I mailed off the mini, so unfortunately mine went off into the void.  I will post a thread in Show Off anyway.

 

I fully intend for everyone who participates in these to get a mini, so even if the person painting for you bailed, I'll try to hook you up, it just might take a while.  Please send a PM to me and SGHawkins09 if this is you.  If you've PM'ed me already and haven't heard anything back, feel free to send another.

Teskeria will be glad it arrived safely and that you liked it she was worried after things kept falling through for each previous plans. She also thanks for the Chimera and Bee she was sent after she never got from a previous.

 

Now I wait and hope mine did not get lost in the mail somehow. (the one i sent)

Thanks Jasper.  Good to see it came through alright.  the car is from the Jonny Lauck road kill kickstarter.  its supposed to be an advance scout car but i thought it made the perfect carrot.

 

Glad you liked it!

More announcement stuff:

 

I will be at ReaperCon next month, and I will bring ribbons for everyone who has participated in a mini exchange since the last ReaperCon.  That would cover Summer, Fall & Secret Sophie 2015, and Spring and Summer 2016.

Sigh......

 

Us poor forumites who cannot make it to Reaper Con have another fun collectible that we miss out on  :down:

A letter to Canada (or Europe, for that matter) is cheap.  Send me a PM during ReaperCon, and I'll mail one to anyone who wants one.  That said, they're not super-impressive or anything.  Some words on the front and adhesive on the back.

I got my exchange from Terminalmancer today.  It was two very nice ghost/specters that are great for my undead themed RPG.  I never thought of using the Reaper bases upside down like that.  I'm going to start doing that.

 

I also got a bunch of really nice Reaper minis which I can't wait to paint, including some Lemurs which I've had my eye on.  I'm going to start on those now.

 

Thanks, Alex.

      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!
