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:

      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.

      From the Kickstarter page:
      The Basius Max collection is a DOUBLE SIDED series of large solid purple resin pads, full of jaw-dropping hand-sculpted negatively recessed texture
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/984996675/basius-max?ref=friends_launched
       

      Basius stamps are one of the most talked about hobby tools that I've never tried, mainly because they never seem to make it to retail.  This time I'm not letting frugality get in the way of awesome bases!

      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...
