Last year @Beagle started a Candy Exchange between UK and US/ROW people.
I also participated and traded a few boxes of Dutch candy and cookies with some overseas friends.
Link to last years fun.
I alread know that @redambrosia wants to take part in an exchange and am willing to send her a Dutch box and in return get some yummie US candy.
Now I noticed there are more people who like the idea.
If anyone else wants to join in let me know.
We will have to keep it limited to a few exchange partners per person or one could be sending out a lot of boxes.
Costs could get too high then.
I'm willing to go as far as three counterparts.
Any EU/UK people who want to join in to change yummies with the poor colonials?
Any US/Canadian etc who wants to receive real yummies and send out yours to us poor starving people?
State your preferences when participating.
Adresses per PM.
Keep it fun!
Let me know.
This was my second entry for the Painter's category at ReaperCon 2017. He is Tarko from Scale 75's Fallen Frontiers line. He was a challenge for me as I have not painted many sci fi minis and I was testing the Scale 75 Fantasy and Games paints on him. I knew I wanted to do a red/orange/yellow armor accented with blue and it ended up pretty close to what I had imagined. He ended up not being the entry that was judged but he was mainly a "lets try this idea out" mini so I know there are some areas that need work.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
Well, I finally got to a point on these where it would be worth it to post. These are my major projects that I will be working on for the next few months and all four are planned ReaperCon entries. Right now there is not much to see as they are just at the primer stage but the bases are built and also ready for paint. So from left to right we have the Dark Elf Assassin from Scale 75, Tarko from Scale 75's Fallen Frontiers line, Dark Sword's Wood Elf Warrior, and Reaper's own Crimson Herald.
Please excuse the blurry pics, I am cleaning my apartment and this was the best place to take pics.
This is Scale 75's Bitsie or to use the the full title; Ares Condominium, Operator 31, 'Bitsie'. I have no idea what all that means since there's no backstory to the piece. Nada. There are six metal parts and a resin base. I epoxied the base to a wooden block and enlarged it with Aves Apoxie Sculpt, added some kitty litter (fresh!) rocks, some wire rebar, a bent styrene pipe, and the smashed pink teddy bear (also Aves). Overall the fit was fine, but there where some areas where the detail got a bit soft and/or nebulous. It was nothing that couldn't be handled. I pinned and epoxied all of the joints. I was originally going to paint it a medium to dark blue with white trim and red hair, but eventually opted to paint and weather her like a tank. It's the armor and guns...
I used Dremel ball and dovetail cutters to ding up her armor before priming the figure with Floquil Model Railroad Gray Primer (no longer available, BTW). The basic color scheme is Reaper's Olive Drab and Earth Brown triads. Think RAF Spitfire circa 1940. Very military. I painted the small yellow disks on her shoulder armor and use 1/48 British tank registration numbers for the '31'. It was my wavy of tying her into the name. Her undersuit is painted Adamantium Black, while Scorched Metal was used on the vents. I went with red hair (a complement to the green, but everyone knows armed-to-the-teeth red haired space babes rock). The impact marks, scratches, scrapes, dust, and dirt were a combination of dark metal paints, colored pencils, tan/brown washes.
The landscaping is based on Rover HD photos of Mars' surface with the Power Palette to point to the right colors.
