I can help seed. Would prefer to be midline to help replenish if needed. That is perfect, I will keep it in mind when doing the line up

 

I can add pretty much anything mentioned above except for stamped bases. I know that feeling

 

I also have some hardboard in need of cutting down (I have a jigsaw) if you want to let me know what sizes to cut down to. Maybe if those after you are interested, they can note in the chatter thread what they would like. Or you could cut it down to regular base sizes and toss it in. It would be welcomed in either case.

 

I have about 100 or so ProPaint pots I can clean up and donate for use to hold basing material, or I can divvy my seeding amounts up into bite-sized chunks. I also have a box of snack-sized baggies that can be donated. What ever you would like to do and if most of the baggies I put in are gone by the time it gets to you, more baggies would be welcome.

 

Do we want to include a notebook for people to list what they took/added? Planned on it mainly so people would know what is there.

I'll make sure to send along stamped bases from my Basius 2 pads to you SG. I like making them and I just got some more sculpy the other day.

 HA stuff is probably one of the things I'd actually be looking for in a basing box. Specifically floor tiles and some of the more interesting scenery pieces.

 

 

 I've got putty I'd like to use up soon.

 

Are there any particular scenery bits people would like to see in the box?

 

I can crank out simple things like rocks, snakes, snakes on rocks (lol), fallen branches, rotten logs, stumps, even slightly more complex things like campfires or a ruined stone altar fairly quickly.

So if there's something you'd like to see in the box, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

(If anybody wants something to be specifically castable be sure to mention it.)

 

I currently have a small tree ready to go and may or may not have a stone wall finished by the time the box gets to me...

Cool, I have one of those big plastic storage tubs full of plaster bits. You know how there's always more corners than center bits, or vice versa when you're trying to assemble something....

      I think I've hit that point where I can admit, I officially have too many projects going. I have three figures in various stages of being painted (the orc, elf ranger, and a halfling PC). I have a full box of Cadian Shock Troopers primed with only one test painted and that one isn't even fully test painted. There are three kobold in various stages of being painted and modified. I found some plastic skull rings that are being painted to be used as shields. I think the kobold with the sword would look great with a shield. Last but not least I have a wiz kids miniature I'm working on for my wife.
      At the moment I don't have a dedicated painting station, our place right now is pretty small. So I started using an old carving knife box to store my ongoing projects. It's never been this full before though. I know I can't be the only one with this problem, heck this might even be a mild case.

      Hi all,
       
      I just finished a CAV dictator and went to put him on his standard hex base, when I realized his "bones" base is too large.  I have already painted and sealed it and was wondering what the best way to remove the base was to minimize damage?

      About
       
      There are many companies who make flocking materials, but not many in North America who cater to a gaming audience. My goal is to allow for a varied range of colors that accommodate specific types of terrain, and that complement the environment where your game takes place. Huge Miniatures is the culmination of 6 months of experimentation, in an attempt to make the highest quality of scenic flock and basing materials.
      I've figured out an efficient method for creating realistic foliage, with a range of colors and blends that allows itself to bring your miniatures, role playing campaign or battlefield to life. I'm pleased to share my ideas with you and I hope you can find a place on your table for exciting new terrain!
      A bunch of foam ready to be dyed Some of the colors I've experimented with  
      I wanted to create a more realistic looking foliage without using sawdust, which in my opinion just looks like dyed sawdust. I've experimented with different varieties of foam, and methods of shaping it to resemble foliage. Using foam also allows for the creation of blends containing multiple colors that all stand out and complement each other. After months, I've come across a process that I'm incredibly pleased with. 

      I chose a set of colors that can find use in historic, fantasy, and sci-fi environments. Both the loose foliage and 2mm static grass can find use when basing miniatures, and building terrain.
      Great for grass, tufts, trees, bushes, shrubs, weeds, ground cover, and more!

      I'm working on this model at the moment:
       
      I'm looking ahead towards the base for the tree portion.  I want the tree to be erupting from wet, chunky, sloppy mud.  Something like this this stock photo, minus the two guys.  Just mud.
       
      Any suggestions on materials for making that?  Plaster?  Red oxide paste?  Something else?

      My brother was cutting up cedar limbs to use for a project for his wife.  I figured I might as well grab a few just in case I might could turn them into bases or platforms for miniatures.  I have several sizes and several heights, but when I started looking I was not finding much on integrating something like this into a base.  Lots of things for already prepared woods, but not many ideas on fresher wood.  Now, most of these limbs were dropped from trees, so, not exactly full of sap:

      I am thinking I would need sealer but wasn't sure how that would interact when trying to get a miniature to adhere, or should I strictly use the taller ones as a plinth of some kind that the completed miniature sits on?
      Thoughts? Ideas? Practical experience?
      Also need to find the best way to handle the bark (leave it, clear it, etc.).
