2013/2014 Miniature Exchange!

Miniature Exchange 2013/2014

It's that time of year, so we are trading figures again!

For those of you not familiar with what a Miniature Exchange involves - you promise to paint one figure or vignette in the two month time limit, and send it to whomever you are assigned. In return, you will receive a model sent by another painter. Please post in this thread if you would like to participate!

Requirements:

  • Sign up ends at midnight GMT on November 30th
  • The paint window is December 1st to February 14th (2014)
  • All Figures must be received by Friday February 28th 2014 so allow for shipping times, especially if you have to send to someone overseas.
  • No work in progress shots. Let us keep the surprise. Keep who you are painting for a secret!
  • Any member, of any painting skill level, can join!
  • Any figure, any company is OK.
  • If for some reason you can not finish – let me know as soon as possible!
  • DO YOUR BEST!

Details:

  • Post your info (except address) in the thread.
  • Please send your name and address in a PM to Beithir Seun
  • You will receive a PM with the address of your trade mate. Feel free to look through their posts to see what they might really like.
  • You can convert, customize, and otherwise have fun!
  • You do not have to buy a new figure for your exchange, unless you want to.
  • The person you are assigned is not the person who is painting for you. A secret draw will determine the pairs.
  • We will try and pick your exchange partner in your own geographical area to save on postage, and customs issues. However, you may be required to ship overseas so please include in your post whether you are prepared to ship overseas!
  • Strongly consider using registered, trackable, recorded, or sign on delivery type mailing.
  • After you paint it, take a photo and send to me before you mail it.
  • When you receive your figure, let the thread know! (And thank your painter!)
  • If you would like something by, or wish to paint something for, a particular participating painter, let me know via PM.

Extras:

  • Painters; once your recipient posts that they have received their figure, please consider posting a description as to what you painted and why!
  • If you are stuck on ideas, PM me (Beithir) and I will do some super secret research to determine more information for you!
  • Consider signing the base of the figure!

The bad news:

  • The worst case scenario, you may not receive a figure. We will do our best to make sure that does not happen, but it could. And when you do receive something, it may be for your collection and not to be fielded!

    The only change to how we've run the Miniature Exchanges in the past is that this year (after a few problems last year) I am afraid I'm imposing a post count requirement.
    Only members with more than 25 posts on the forum may sign up for the Miniature Exchange.
    This should go some way towards ensuring that people who sign up are likely to hang around the site and see the Exchange through (rather than sign up and then disappear from the forum altogether, as happened last year).

    If anyone is prepared to paint up a second figure in case someone does not receive theirs, please also include that in your sign-up post!

I would love to join, but I don't think I'm at the post count limit yet.
If it is still possible for me to join I would be willing to send overseas but not paint a second model

OK, sign ups are officially closed and everyone should have now received the details of who they're painting for!


If anyone has any problems, please let me know as soon as possible. Remember not to post any WiPs, but take some pictures of your finished model before posting so that we can see everyone's model afterwards!


All the best to everyone. Ready? Get set. Go!

I'm working on mine, about halfway finished? If only I wasn't getting distracted by Dark Elves or by school (too many essays to write, I have no idea how I'm going to manage it all). I'm hoping to finish it soon, though.
