2016 Secret Sophie / Winter Exchange

Recommended Posts

Order placed for 10 minis.

 

One is a gift for my partner, one is a gift for me, two are potential painted exchange minis but I couldn't decide on one, so eventually one for my partner one for me, one definitely for a scenic base, and five more that may contribute parts to the base, but what's left are gifts for me.

 

Also, I remembered to use my store credit this time which made it effectively half price.

Still pondering what exactly to do.... I'll get stuff ordered next week probably after I assess what my father got me from the boneyard.

That was actually a late mini from the Spring Exchange.  You might want to pop on over there to say thanks to Dai-Mongar.

So, this is a first. I have several ideas for this Exchange and all of them are good and something I can actually make successfully with little to no problems! Now, just to make a decision on which to do for this. And I'm making good progress on my Commission Project for the Max's Minions Podcast PCs too! And I got a swag bag from ReaperCon full of sweet Loot too! Thanks to it, I FINALLY learned the name of the makers of those Base Stamp Thingys and Ordered a handful of them! It has been a good weekend so far! And it still isn't Sunday yet! Yay.

 

GF

 

EDIT: And I completely forgot that the Sensible Shoes KS is sending out their minis already. I'm looking forward to those too. mine could be here any time in the next week or two!

 

Finally, I think I shouldn't have had that Non-Diet Soda! It is gonna be a busy night:P Hope I can sleep eventually!

      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!
