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....

      Only two groups this time and they are fairly large so make sure to keep the boxes moving. Also you may notice Keianna is listed in both groups, this is intentional as she did not receive a box last time.

      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!

      Need to work on my basing. Still, I don't think this little Hasslefree piece came out TOO badly.

       Cavewoman stock Hasslefree, from the recent kickstarter; dinosaur, a slightly altered plastic dino I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby; Reaper base; GF9 static grass, with flowers scavenged from a Box Of Goodwill. The tree was the hard part; I needed a prehistoric looking giant conifer, so I started with a metal rod, coated with greenstuff, and began sculpting up, layer by later, with no small effort...  I'm a far worse sculptor than even I think I am... and finally, after completion, I layer painted it with a variety of browns...

      ...and then threw it in the trash and substituted a pine sprout from the yard instead. Sometimes the old ways are the best.
