Box of Goodwill, Basing Edition - Chatter Thread

Recommended Posts

 

I can still start one if you like.

That would be great! You are actually the first on my list of who I was going to ask.

Cool. I hope the new basing bits I ordered arrive before I need to send it out. I have plenty of stuff anyway, but more variety is always good.

I understand that. I was waiting on my order from Green Stuff World to come in before getting everything together, but its been a month with no sign of the package so I will send without it.

Alright, sign-ups closed Saturday night and we have 27 people participating which means we will have 3 boxes going out. Some time this week I will get the arrival/departure thread up and update the first post of this thread with the routes. I was originally going to have my box out by the 11th but I am going to extend that to the 18th.

 Well, technically it is your box, it's just full of my stuff... (And I still didn't get to throw in a bunch of stuff I wanted to.)

I picked up some Priority Mail boxes while I was at the post office mailing a package. Next time I get a chance I need to grab three or four more of various sizes. This way if the box reaches me and requires replacement, won't be an issue. ::D:

 

I would like to have a reminder placed to ensure all containers you have basing material in (such as sand, flocking, snow, herbs/loose tea) be Clearly Marked and securely contained. I am planning on using thoroughly cleaned prescription bottles with labels affixed and tape around the lids to ensure everything stays secure. Don't want a bunch of sand and glitter mixing it up in the box and dusting the postal workers. :unsure:

Is it absolutely too late to sign up? For some reason this slipped under my radar.  -_-

 

Huzzah!

A reminder to everyone, you can ORDER the flat rate boxes for FREE and have delivered for FREE to your mailbox, no need to even go to the post office to get them. I think they come in packs of 10 and 25.

Nope it is not too late, I can squeeze you in.

 

I will have the lists posted tomorrow. I left them at work and I am at home today.

 Nope, you can't sign up - it's too late for you. For anybody else it'd be fine, but not you... ::D:

      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.).
