Box of Goodwill, Basing Edition - Chatter Thread

Recommended Posts

Oh...why did you not write that last week so it would already be end of the month!?!  I got plenty of stuff from Base Boss and Wamp raffle to share.

And I've got my last box (the Dilvish/MadJack combo box) packed and ready to go.  I even saw it sometime last week under the pile of "stuff" as I was digging out my hobby area.  Shouldn't take more than 2-3 shovels and a chain-fall to unearth it once more.

Sorry, I had meant to get it started again a few months ago but then work changes and the holidays took over my life.

I will definitely be in touch with you again to get it started. I am resolving the issue of the missing box first so I know how many possible boxes can go out and so the two that did not get the box last time receive something.

I would like to join please!  I've done the normal BOGW prior.

 

Keep an eye out for the sign up thread at the end of the month.

Then this is perfect for you. The basing box is slightly different from the normal BOGW in that we do not have the 1 for 1 rule. The idea behind it was to get basing materials to those that do not have any or very little as well as sharing what we may have excess of. Basically we expect some to take more than they can add, as long as it is a reasonable amount. One of the things I will ask in the sign up thread is who can be seeders, those that can help replenish the box partway through the route. They may not be as necessary this time around as I know the box I have has enough stuff to be split in two.

My box is still full too.

Me me me!  I want in!  I have to say that I don't have many basing supplies but I will give what I can.  From reading above that sounds ok though.

 

Is baggies of flock and static grass ok?  I also have some actual bases as well.  I'll have to see what else I have.

Yep, you are another that this box is designed for. Baggies of flock and static grass are what we are after but the box may have a fair amount of those in them already. In regards to actual bases, we would like to keep those to a minimum as most have them already and this is more geared towards supplies to make your own.

      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.).
