Hi All,

I really enjoyed the Christmas miniature exchange, and it seems so long until next Christmas that I thought it might be good to do another exchange between now and maybe the end of June?

Rules:
Each forum member interested in participating paints a model, and sends it to a randomly drawn member as a gift. Only you will know who you're sending to so keep it as a surprise. In return you should also be receiving a gift from another forum member.

I'll close the sign ups and make the draw at the end of February. Models must be completed and ready to send by the end of June. Please only participate if you can commit to doing this!

This is not a painting competition, just the chance to give something special to the community so just do your best! From last time however I think we could expect a few interesting things being sent and received!

Conversions of original models or something similar is fine too, so please use your judgment to ensure it would not look out of place alongside the normal heroquest range, for example by using similar basing. Please also remember to paint your forum name under the base of the mini.

Please also try to take some photos of your model before sending, and also pictures of what you receive - we all want to see what people are getting!

The provisional date for mass shipping is Monday 1st July However if we're all done before then I see no reason why we can't make it earlier.

I'll keep updating this first page with the status and updates! :)

Received List

Spiky

I got this AMAZING giant wolf plus scenery from Mako-heart! I've never seen any of the models from the Barbarian or Elf expansions, and didn't even know they existed until I joined this forum so I'm very honoured to receive something this rare! The paint job is really good too, and having a bit of orginal scenery is just awesome :D Thanks a lot! :mrgreen:

Tasoe

I just received this. It's from Spiky. Thank you very much Spiky!
It's a mercenary with all four weapons included. You may have noticed that the socket in his belly is filled. That's not a problem cause Spiky added magnets so all the weapons stick in place and make the switch from one weapon to another much easier.
Needless to mention what a great paintjob he did as well, you lot aren't blind after all, are you? Love the moustache!

Wolfie907

Received this cool Dwarf Hero from Sjeng:
Image

Goblin-king

HERE HE IS!
ImageImage
The meanest orc this level of the dungeon! - Very stylish in pure black and silver! 8-)

No name underneath though, and I was so excited I unwrapped it on my way home and threw out the packaging. It was from Brasil though so I'm guessing washi?

Bruenor

Well I can happily say that my exchange mini came in the post today and what a mini it is!!!!! :shock: :o :D

ImageImage

I got this superb Ogre from Shy Design. 8-) 8-) 8-)
Well worth any amount of waiting, its fantastic, and is certainly going to kick some heroes about the dungeons.

Love the colours scheme too, which I may continue onto the rest of my own ogres.

Thanks buddy and roll on the next exchange!
(sorry for any moaning about waiting, I AM the worlds most inpatient post waiting person ever)

Shy-design

I got home yesterday to find a package waiting for me... a treasure chest from a far land , across the Atlantic ocean...
I opened it with extreme care and caution... not nowing what lay in wait... a treasure? a hidden trap? a wandering monster pehaps
low and behold... "THE WHITE TERROR"!!!

Image

Mako-heart

This is what I got from Wolfie it didn't survive shipping, he also forgot to sign the bottom But I still think its sweet thanks :skeleton: I will get him back together :D

ImageImage

Sjeng

I got a Sinestra, from greenstuff, in a nice red box with a very friendly note from Patroclus:
Image

TMU

Worry not tasoe, your package was waiting in the post office for me to pick it up :) I have to say, it was worth the wait. I received this amazingly converted orc. It has arms repositioned and it has new weapons. I can't thank you enough tasoe |_P

Image
Image

And the paint job... I compared it to mine and, well, I think tasoe did a little bit better paint job than me ;) Thank you

Templar

Yesterday I was the lucky recipient of Bruenor's Chaos Warrior in Inferno Armour... 8-) Truly excellent work Bruenor!
Image
Here he is gazing out over the hellscape wilderness...
Image
He will be used frequently :P Thank you very much!

Washi
Recevied a very dapper looking Orc in a coat with tails from TMU

Image
Image

Patroclus
This is what I get today from Templar… An awesome conversion of an Orc with a spiked club, an axe, a shield and a cape… Very good job, and thank you for this unique piece.
Image
And the good don’t stop here... He also sent me the story of this mini on a colorful page like papyrus! It’s a beautiful story, interesting and well written, so good that it feels like I am reading a novel… I can’t resist posting it… Can be easily converted to a campaign, where the heroes will try to find the Orc and restore a missing item... though I don’t have minis for deserts or savage Orcs I could easily do this.

Ivenbach

I finally got to bring my newborn home. I'm thinking about naming him Bonesy! Finally was able to get him out of the hands of the post office. Even though he's not an 'official' HQ mini he'll still be welcome. I just wish the photo would have shown the red eye sockets better.
ImageImage

Billdask

Today I received this Orc from IvenBach. I named it Orc in white tights :lol:
I've seen really good minis so far and I'm looking forward for the next exchange.

Do they have to be HQ minis? Because I might join this time if I can use some other mini (it will be compatible!)

I'm definitely in!

It would be awesome if we could also get the competition we've been talking about. A summer and x-mas mini exchange AND a spring and autumn competition. Then we'd have a complete cycle of HQ fun and mayhem!

As for the exchange, I personally would prefer if we could stick to HQ minis. I don't mind if it's just the game system figures. Even a measly goblin could be painted as a champion with glowing sword and tattoos. If the general opinion is "compatible" minis, I won't make (much of) a fuzz though.
