Reaper Miniatures Forum Autumn Miniature Exchange

This was the 2nd time I participated in a miniature exchange and I do enjoy them quite a bit. I painted up Reaper’s Monterey Jack, Cowboy Mouseling sculpted by Gene Van Horne for my exchange partner as she really likes mouselings, and requested one for this exchange. Monterey Jack was Reaper’s 2011 Convention Special Edition Miniature and I happened to have two and thought it would be perfect to paint and give away as it is no longer available for sale from Reaper.

I really enjoyed painting Monterey Jack who I nicknamed Charlie Prince (shout out to 3:10 to Yuma). He was the first Mouseling I painted and I really must pick up some more and paint up sometime they have so much character and of course cuteness. I selected a warm color scheme for him as I pictured him in the dry desert area of the wild west. I even added a touch of freehand to his hat which was inspired by western art. The base was difficult as his tail is sculpted onto his base so I could not just cut it off. So I glued him onto a 1 inch square base and hid most of his base by sand and basing materials. Prior to sending him off to his new home I took a couple of photos, so here he is.

Also a quick shot of him with a standard d6 for anyone who does not know the scale of the mouseling’s Reaper produces.

And finally the mini I received during the exchange. I was lucky enough to be paired with Reaper’s own staff artist Martin Jones. The mini pictured below is Reaper’s Netikerti, Nefsokar Mage sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

I absolutely love this mini and how he painted her for me. I am honored to have her as part of my miniature collection. For a better picture you can visit Reaper’s site here http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/mummy/sku-down/14081 to see Netikerti in all of her awesomeness painted by Martin Jones.

And lastly I wanted to post up a personal thank you to Recruittons from Reaper’s forum for running the exchange and taking the time to put it together so everyone can have a great time and get a little piece of art in the mail as a surprise.
