Is it too late to sign up?

 

Sorry, but I think at this point signups are closed.  Look for the next exchange signup to start at the beginning of February.

Good going for everyone who has gotten started!  I had two ideas, but one of them requires scenery bits I don't know how to make or where to buy.  So I guess I have one idea.

What kind of scenery?

 

Something Egypt-y.  Honestly, aside from maybe broken columns, I don't even know what that might be.

Look at the Hirst Arts Website... (NOT LINKED... but easy to find)... Look at molds 90 thru 99. I have all but 91. If you need Egyptian Bits, let me know.

Look at Crocodile Games.  They have lots of little bits that go with their figures, urns, statues, treasure. The scale is more delicate than Reaper. You can order them separately. 

 

Castle Kits will sell you Hirst Arts castings at a pretty good price if you don't want to get into buying the molds. I used them when I did a Nefsokar terrain board a while back, to get pieces from molds I didn't have. Their quality is pretty good.

I am guessing that everyone is so busy painting marvelous works of art that they don't have time to post here?  I am soon to start my annual quest for chocolate and cookies.  (this is not a particularly onerous quest ::D:)  Hoping to have my exchanges in my partners hands before Christmas (Yea!)

 

How is everyone else doing?

I have been slacking and have not picked up my brush since ReaperCon. Mostly due to real life stuff and needing to reorganize my painting area. I do have the mini picked out and hopefully will do at least assembly tomorrow.

      So, I'm working on a miniature for my Box of Many Things exchange partner, more commonly known as a "Thinger" among those long time participants. This happens on the Twitters and you can search for it by sticking one those hashtag/pound sign/number sign thingies in front of BoxofManyThings in the search thingy there. Basically, it is like a Secret Santa type thing for geeks and nerds that happens every couple months. Sign ups for the next one should start near the end of October, if you are interested.
       
      Anywho, my "Thinger" is interested in, among other things, Medusas. So, since I'm kind of not up to much due to a severe lack of AC at my place, I've decided to try to distract myself from the fact I am alternating between melting and immolating at this time by making a custom mini and painting it. Also, attempt to chronicle it too.

      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.
