#warmongers Miniswap 2014 – Update!

warmongers miniswap 2014

Time for an update on the #warmongers #miniswap for 2014!

Lots of activity going on and some have even completed their models! Others are in transit (sorry Darren, it is on its way!) and some are preparing to swap after a false start.

Anyway, here are some shots of the minis swapped thus far:

 So, as you can see, lots of fun things being swapped back and forth and plenty of progress going on. Keep the wip shots coming in miniswappers and I’ll do another update post soon – hopefully with some proper progress of my own to show off!

#warmongers #miniswap 2014 is GO for launch!

Well the deed is done #warmongers, I’ve just sent out the pairings emails for the 2014 round of the #warmongers #miniswap! 18 lucky people are now paired up and will be sending each other a lovely miniature (just the one mind, this isn’t a regiment painting service!), to apply some paint to.

There are plenty of pairings from around the world this year (twice as many as last time): Norway, The Netherlands, USA and UK are all represented and I’ve tried to maximise the far-flung pairings so that where possible people aren’t swapping with a next door neighbour. I’ll be reporting back on progress as the swaps take place and keeping the #warmongers community up to date on who’s swapped what and with whom. For now, the match-ups are:

  • Archaeolas
  • Jamie
  • Jaime Barron
  • Richard miller
  • Harry Brown
  • Oliver Maclean
  • Patrick Harms
  • Jay Richardson
  • wouter lute
  • Rich Taylor
  • Lee Parry
  • Aj
  • Art steventon
  • Sarah Gransee
  • Faron Adams
  • Darren Bogus
  • Nigel Bartlett
  • Tom van de Ven

Cheer them on when you see them talking about it on Twitter, prod them for progress if they aren’t!

I’m sad not to join in this time but the numbers didn’t quite work out (it would’ve been odd swapping with myself I suppose…), but this is a great little project that will hopefully continue to grow until finally, IT TAKES OVER THE WORLD!! Er, sorry, maniacal tendencies put back in their box, for now…
