Good Morning!

Well, I had so much fun last time, I figured I'd start up another 15mm Miniatures Exchange!

I'm gonna use the same rules from ThroLongus:

This sign up will start today, August 28th and will end midnight of September 4th. On September 5th , no more signups will be accepted, and I will email all participants the addresses for mailing off their exchanges. This will be done randomly, so no one will be able to pick who they are sending to or receiving from. As well no requests for "what I would like to receive " will be honored.

I would like for all mailings to be completed no later than September 18th. All attempts will be made to match you up with someone from your region, should you request as much in your sign up.

The rules: This exchange involves sending out a 5 man team/squad or vehicle of 15mm, painted (basing optional) scifi,future,post apocalyptic, or near future miniatures. You will get the same in return. This could be a coherent, uniform squad of any race, or it can be a mixed mercenary type of unit. the bare minimum is 5 average humanoid sized 15mm minis. if you want to include some oversize (think ogryns/super mutants) that is up to you.

This can be minis painted just for this exchange or a squad long ago finished and collecting dust, but either way try to make it something you are proud of. As well it could be stock miniatures,lightly to heavily converted, all the way to original sculpts(for the over achievers). a brief note to the recipient may be a nice touch if you are sending obscure stuff.
While there is no guarantee that you will receive something up to your painting standard, I think it will be a fun way to expand your forces , and possibly enlarge your horizons.

To join:

1) Respond to this thread by September 4th to let me know you're going to PM or E-MAIL me.

2) PM, or e-mail Include your TMP Username, name, email contact, and full address (including country!)
You MUST PM or EMAIL me, that way I can keep track of all the info

3) Include any mailing restrictions you wish honored (i.e. I wish to only ship to continental USA/ UK only etc.)

I will try my best to contact you if for some reason I can't honor your mailing request.

Please let me know if you have any questions! Thanks!

Colin Hagreen28 Aug 2012 5:10 a.m. PST

I don't see why not! Big bug aliens too!

Eclipsing Binaries28 Aug 2012 7:30 a.m. PST

I'm in on this.

Are figures to be painted for the exchange or can I use figures that I've already painted?

Personal logo MrHarold Sponsoring Member of TMP04 Sep 2012 6:57 p.m. PST

Last day to join! We have 13 people so far! One more to make it even would be great!

And with that we have an even 14 :) This exchange is now closed, if you missed the deadline e-mail me and if we get another even amount I'll expand it.

Participants, expect and e-mail shortly! And thanks!

Personal logo MrHarold Sponsoring Member of TMP04 Sep 2012 8:47 p.m. PST

Oh, and maybe one day I'll figure out why I decided that it was 2013 already….

Personal logo MrHarold Sponsoring Member of TMP04 Sep 2012 8:57 p.m. PST

All Participants have been e-mailed with their matches, please let me know if you didn't get your e-mail.

Eclipsing Binaries11 Sep 2012 5:44 a.m. PST

Got my figures picked, painted and waiting for the bases to dry before finishing them off. How's everybody else doing? Do we post pics of what we've done or of what we get?

Personal logo MrHarold Sponsoring Member of TMP11 Sep 2012 6:13 a.m. PST

I have my five picked out, and I'm about half way through painting them now.

Perhaps we'll start a new thread once we start receiving the minis, so it's more of a surprise ;)

Eclipsing Binaries11 Sep 2012 6:55 a.m. PST

Okay, I'll take pics of mine before sending them but won't post the pics.

Psyckosama11 Sep 2012 9:42 a.m. PST

wish I'd seen this… oh well

keeper Nilbog11 Sep 2012 1:09 p.m. PST

Figures selected and under paint as i speak. Should finish in time (i hope – work and real life keeps getting in the way)

Personal logo MrHarold Sponsoring Member of TMP11 Sep 2012 1:12 p.m. PST

wish I'd seen this… oh well

If there is anyone else interested, and able to send out by the 18th i'd be happy to pair you up! If you want to send your info to me at the above address for "standby" let me know!

Dropzonetoe Fezian11 Sep 2012 4:14 p.m. PST

Mine is almost finished I look to be ready to ship in a couple of days!

Kyn ell11 Sep 2012 8:02 p.m. PST

Mine are done just need to finish the bases and coat with some varnish. Should be posting in next couple of days!
I'll do a pic too, but keep it a surprise as well! looking forward to seeing the results!!

Colin Hagreen13 Sep 2012 9:33 a.m. PST

Figures and vehicle chosen, figures painted, need to find my magnets to finish off the vehicle…

Jeff W13 Sep 2012 9:40 a.m. PST

Airbrushing on the minis is complete, I need to detail and base. The vehicle is primed and turret magnetized, I just need to build and finish a base for it. I'm shooting to ship on Monday.

Eclipsing Binaries13 Sep 2012 10:10 a.m. PST

Figures AND Vehicles? I thought it was figures OR vehicles. Not that it's an issue as I have a vehicle that will be okay to go with the minis.


Jeff W13 Sep 2012 10:14 a.m. PST

You're correct, Colin, I'm just sending both.

blambi13 Sep 2012 12:20 p.m. PST

Mine's done, just need to get by the postal office.

Yes, it's EITHER/OR.. not both, although if you're an over-achiever i'm sure no one will complain!!

I have all my base coated, washed, and the bases almost complete!

(Major Disaster)13 Sep 2012 8:53 p.m. PST


I, like Psykosama, am a bit late to the party. If you still need someone to participate to even things out, I'd be happy to. I sent you an email with my info.

keeper Nilbog14 Sep 2012 12:22 p.m. PST

Not good with Piccies, maybe the receivee might post some if he likes the figures. 3/4 of way there, but in work all weekend, so finish off Monday (1 day to spare)

Krazy Ivan15 Sep 2012 6:44 a.m. PST

The falcon flys at midnight…or, the package is officially in the mail.

Personal logo MrHarold Sponsoring Member of TMP15 Sep 2012 7:13 a.m. PST

Mine is all packed up and ready for wormhole transit!
