First up ,  I'd like to apologize for the delay and lack of communication on my part.  I have been sick and I just have not been able to shake it.  Secondly I am changing jobs and have been trying to work through 12hour days, doing my current job and training from the outgoing person I am going to replace.   It's been a nasty combo that has effected my time on this project.

But on to the fun stuff!

Unfortunately we lost a couple of people both to time and to the Titanium Dropship painting contest.
So I am happy to see the fine work from our swappers who stuck it out this month!  A varied group all around,

Here are our months swaps!




I will be putting up the poll soon and remember vote for your favorite!  I will be supplying the prize - A selection of miniatures from Khurasan Miniatures to the winner!
Good luck to all.

Surprise! The end of this month is near, That ambush team ready to move out?

I hope everyone has had the chance to flex those terrain making skills.  Some of the last things people make is good terrain to fight over.  While the swap will not cover a whole board it is a small step in adding much needed cover.  I hope this months swap inspires you with new ideas for your own terrain going forward.

I will be sending out shipping info for people tomorrow, and shipping will start on the 25th.  If you have not gotten an email from me let me know!  Don't forget to send me those pics!!!  The poll will start the 1st and run until the 8th.  

I will be posting next months  sign-up on TMP soon as well the deadline to join as always will be the 8th.

The numbers are in, the polls are closed, and the confetti is being swept up!  Congratulations to Nate; aka whitphoto, for his winning swap!  I will be contacting you regarding your prize soon. 

Just a reminder for February's swap.

February is the month of surprise gifts so what better way to celebrate it than by a Ambush Team! An Ambush Team obviously need some sort of cover so;

Participants for the February Swap will be making
A single 3 man ambush team. It can be Snipers, Mortar team, Heavy Weapon Team, Etc.
A single terrain element based on a CD or CD sized base. This can be anything you can think of that would make a good ambush point. Heavy thickets, Elevated rocky outcrops, Small buildings, etc.
5 Small terrain scatter pieces. These can be anything from coin to poker chip sized bases. Rocks, Crates, Small trees or bushes, Rubble piles, Etc.

Above is a example of just what you need.  Remember, while I am just making an example you are free to go any direction for theme of your swap.

Dates and times.
Swappers get locked in Feb 8th
Shipping starts Feb 28th  - Don't forget to send in your photo to me before you ship!
The poll will run until the 8th of Mar.
Swappers get locked in Mar 8th

I look forward to seeing everyone's work this swap!

For those that took part in January's swap feel free to make suggestions for things that you would like to see to make the experience better.

Wow that was a quick month!  I would like to thank everyone for taking part in the first swap.  While I did not receive any of the groups below, I doubt that few got less excited to see the end results than I did.  Seeing the varied skill levels, presentations,  and miniature choices made my time setting this up well worth it! 

Attached below are the six swaps traded in January.   Please vote on the one that best encompasses the swap minimum requirements of ;
1. Paint 6-8 infantry
2. Paint an APC
3. Swaps are to be done in the spirit of goodwill

The poll will run until Feb 8th Midnight EST.  The winner will be receiving a prize from Mr. Harold of  In addition, the winning selection will replace my blog cover picture for the month.

Best of luck to all the participants and I look forward to you joining next months swap as well.

Weclome Recruits!

Welcome all to the start of a new year!

This blog has been created for the enjoyment of TMP members involved in the monthly swap and 15mm Scifi Wargamers in general.

The swap rules are simple;
1 -Each month a new theme will be selected for the participants
2 – Participants will, assemble, paint, and photograph something that fits the theme.
3 – I will compile a list of contacts for swaps and we ship out by months end.

Why join? 

   It gets easy to float by month to month without working on the hobby.   Painting skills fade, and hobby lethargy falls into place.   It is the draw of deadlines that galvanizes people into moving, to show off new works, tips, and ideas.  This community project is a way of bringing new ideas and creativity to the forefront while building the 15mm community together.  It is also a wonderful chance to receive miniatures you may have not gotten before and to discover, or rediscover, new 15mm companies and products.

 Extra bonus;
   At the end of each month a blog poll will be posted of all the swaps and the winner with the most votes will receive a prize.

   Anyone who complete four concurrent months of swaps at any time over the year will receive a gift as well.

January's joining Deadline will be – JANUARY 11TH
Shipping will start – JANUARY 25TH
Prize poll will start – FEBRUARY 1ST
Prize poll will ends – FEBRUARY 8TH
February's Joining Deadline will be – FEBRUARY 8TH
