 I have stuff that was cast from recycled musket balls...  ::P:

 

(I dug up some Asgard and Archive stuff out of the depths of the Citadel for this round.)

 

 

I'll have a fair pile of ancient lead in my box, too, balanced with Bones and some newer Kickstarters that don't seem likely to be painted. :huh:

Just as a quick reminder to everyone, if you're putting lead figures into the box, please ensure that they're labeled as such.

Aye aye; it shall be done.

What's the general opinion on non-complete (like the afore-mentioned handless wonder) or conversion parts in the box?

 

I have no problem with there being a small percentage of "conversion fodder" or bitz.  But I'd hope no one thought it was a good idea to take out a bunch of perfectly good figures and dump in a pile of nothing but broken stuff.

Maybe if the "conversion bits" were in a separate labeled baggie, and the box limited to whatever can fit in that, the way some other things are limited.

 

(I should have been clear about my handless mini earlier.  I have her hand; it's just going to be a pain to pin and glue.)

Another one of your off-handed remarks, I see.  ::D::B):

 

On a serious note, I think your baggie idea is a good one. (And preferably no bigger than a sandwich bag.)

Also, are we doing group paints this time?

I had thought I might poll my group once they're assigned to see if they wanted to do an optional one, but one must keep in mind this part of the rules:

 

Each participant will have 1 week from the arrival of the

box to make their swaps and then send the box on to the next person.

 

A week is plenty of time to go through the box, make selections, select items to put back in and send the box on its way, but may be too pressured of a time line if you add painting into it and we don't want to delay the boxes needlessly.

If it's just a few figures, and they're complete (all parts are present) that's fine. Otherwise, they should be considered 'bits'

That's up to each individual box starter; I plan on PM'ing everyone in my circuit to see if they want to do one or not.

Nobody needs to feel pressured to paint the group figure if they don't want to or feel they won't have time.  Besides, you don't need to spend more than a few minutes on it, paint a belt pouch, or the sword, or glue rocks onto the base. You're not responsible for the whole figure.

Quite the opposite, in fact. Save some fun for the rest of us! :B):

      Ok, I've got the box organized and packed; hopefully I can make to the post office Monday to start it on it's way.
       
      Here's the list:
       
      Ratmaster 2000
      SGhawkins 09
      ShadowPhase
      Strawhat
      GlitterWolf
      RobinH
      Necromancer
      Generic Fighter
      Disserma
      RedAmbrosia
      Ttuckerman
      Fire Eyes
      Chris Palmer
      Sanael
       
      If there's anything left, send it back to me, and it'll get put into the next (regular version) BoGW that happens.
       
      There are enough items included for everyone to make four (4) picks. After you've grabbed some stuff, seal it back up and send it the next person. This is all based on the generosity of people at Reapercon, so there's no need to put anything back in; this is a straight up gift.
      There are 2 pairs of sunglasses in there; they don't have anything to do with Reaper/Reapercon other than that they were in the swag bag, and (I'm guessing) donated by the city of Denton. If you want a pair take 'em, they don't have to count as one of your 4 items, unless your conscience dictates otherwise.
      If you want to help out with international shipping fees (and no one is under any obligation to do so) contact Strawhat, GlitterWolf, or RobinH to work something out.
       
      A big THANK YOU!! to everyone who donated stuff for this to happen.

      This a Bones elf ranger that I started painting a while back and decided to finish just to be done with him. Done to a tabletop standard. Thanks for looking.

      These are a couple figures I picked up at the factory while at Reapercon this year. I painted them over the last week or so; lots of browns and greys. I couldn't manage to get a decent picture, but their eyes are glowing green, too. I hope you like them.
