Miniature Exchanges are always fun events. If you don’t know what they are, I’ll give you a short version of the rules – you paint a miniature as a surprise gift for someone and someone (not necessarily the same person) paints a mini for you. We had few Miniature Exchanges at the Chest of Colors forums few years ago and as I have said – they were fun!
I have recently decided to remind myself how fun Miniature Exchanges are and joined one held at the Reaper Miniatures forum. They had some additional rules there. One has to pick a Reaper mini to paint (obviously) and participants are allowed to make some requests for people painting for them (like “I don’t accept nude models” or “I’d love something for my dwarf army”).
My recipient, Robin from Canada, wished for a non-human model with some orange shade incorporated in a paintjob. After going through my collection of Reaper minis I picked a stone golem from the Bones range (might need to write more about Bones products someday) and … well … I painted it. So, here it is, the stone golem, guardian of some ancient temple.
As promised earlier, I’m slowly rebuilding my galleries. The biggest part of what I’ve painted comes from Reaper Miniatures, so here it is… all pics of Reaper minis painted by me that I was able to find with help of Mahoń.
From the very first Reaper mini painted back in 2006…
… to the most recent paintjobs, finished in December 2016.
Oh, and the link to the whole Reaper Miniatures galery:
Bones are a relatively new line of Reaper miniatures, cast of some rather bizarre plastic material which is loved by some and hated by others. Will have to write more about it one day. Anyway, I have few of these minis at home and below you will see two of them painted.
Why “quick”, you ask? Well, life likes to put obstacles on our painting paths and limit our free time we can spend on our hobby. There are different ways to overcome this problem; speed-painting is one of available options. You take a mini, paints and brushes…. and you paint it quickly. Yeah, simple as that. Forget the quality, forget prizes and eternal fame. Just paint and have some fun along.
