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.

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.

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.

      So I'm going to be making a diorama for a friend soon. I have a pretty solid idea of what I want to do but no idea how to go about it. I've never worked with cork before and am going to be using quite a bit of it. I want to pour water effects(?) into it but don't want the cork to soak it up. My questions are (photos to be added below for reference):
       
      How do I seal the cork so it won't absorb the resin water effects? Do I need to seal the wood I am basing it on as well? If so what is the best way to do that? What is the best glue to put the cork on the wood, sealed or not?  
      ETA: 
      How do I fix the small hairline cracks in the cork (not sure if they're visible in the picture)? Kind of related but what is the best glue for plastic to wood (I'm going to be putting the wood on top of a painted Tropicana lid)?

      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.

      I've made no secret about my opinions on Games Workshop. Though my painting box is full of their miniatures they were always bought second and sometimes third hand (I never wanted GW to get any of my money). Even my previous Cadians were bought from my local games store that has no affiliation with GW (I also know those sets and blisters came with the business when it was bought almost twenty years ago). Now I find myself in the unique position of building a Cadian army.
       
      My wife and I used to play weekly in D&D Adventure League but with the birth of our first child it looks like that won't be possible (We want to continue gaming at our current store but its a bit of drive and the kid is at the rolling stage so she doesn't want to be held or sit in her seat; she wants to be on the floor and we all know what gameshop floors are like). I've offered to watch the child so she can go or to switch off each week but she only wants to go together. Gaming together has always been part of our relationship, and she doesn't want to lose that. I couldn't agree more, its good to share a hobby with your spouse.
       
      That's when our friends started trying to recruit us to play Warhammer 40K with them. At first I was resistant but our friends get together often to play and in our area its always possible to find a game (Depending on the size it can be played fairly quickly in comparison to D&D too). After some discussion we decided 40K would give me something to paint, but it would also give us both something to play and eventually something to play together.
       
      Which brings us to this new project. Since I figured watching me assemble miniatures would be pretty boring I'm starting this thread right before I prime them. So here is most of my assembled starter set (I've got quite a few cheap sets of bits arriving over the next couple weeks and I'm not exactly sure what unit I'd like to create next so that's why I have so many unfinished figures).
       
      I'm still not a big fan of GW but having an excuse to see our friends more often is pretty nice. In a way we're kinda trading one gaming group for another (that sounds pretty mean but I think you understand what I'm saying).

      I painted this guy and he seemed like a real ambitious little skeleton. So I had a base I had started for a different project, but ultimately decided not to use, and he seemed worthy and I liked the rocks he came standing on anyways...
