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'd love to join, but I'm not sure how much I have to add...but I do have some!

 

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.

      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 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...

      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.
