The tracking says it got put on a truck, plane, or train to (GenFtr City) at 12:23am Saturday.  And I found this snap shot:

This was ^ drawn on the exterior. Not sure by who. One corner of the box had an accordion fold to it when it arrived  and I figured I would preserve this if I replaced the box. Ultimately I just used same box...I think it has one trip left in it. 

That was me.  ^^  I thought the box needed a little something on it to make it exciting.

The inside of the GFBox was filled with lots of tiny ziploc bags. Many twenties of bags. There was even a bundle of spare bags to be used to reorganize or put new things in. The first squad of Minis that ended up staying with me were these:

Photo turned out ...meh. Caption feature worked pretty good though. This lot were discovered in a bag, near the top and were literally trying to bayonet their way to freedom. So I figured they were volunteers...

 

I don't  play 40K (maybe someone who does can tell me why Space-aliens need bayonets?) but I could use some extra Aliens for Froggy's Starzap-Raygun game. Earthlings I have in plenty.

Dark Eldar Warriors from Warhammer 40k.  The 3rd edition versions.  The starter set was Space Marines (of course) and them.

Almost everything they had could be upgraded with Spikes.  Plus it's 40k pre-8th, so melee combat was always more efficient than shooting.

Dark Eldar are Space Drow, mean and vicious and love to torture their enemies.

It makes sense that they attach bajonets to inflict more pain....

Meanwhile the tracking says the box has moved about 1200 miles. It has made it to someplace called Warrandale.. :unsure: ..or maybe Warrendale.

You can see the accordion corner pretty clearly in genetic fighter's pix. Poor box. Those auto sorting machines the post office uses can be mean. 

 

(I used to do technical drawings of the components of those machines...they got conveyors...elevators...robot arms...)

.

After I pulled out the bayonet guys I sorta went...

 

:blink:::o: !

 

...at the many twenties of little bags. But the next thing I did was look at the book and read all the prior entries. 

 

I liked that the book was full of unlined pages. Some folks had made drawings in there. So that was the next thing I did, I started an entry and added a drawing or two:

...if you'd rather that such things should remain a surprise, don't look:





Here there be dragons...

I used to do technical drawing for the machine that handled lunch meat and hot dogs.  When you are dealing with softer products, mean is an understatement...

The Foo Dog from my box. Not much to say about it except that next time, I hope my group has less distractions that interfered with painting. I plan to finish it up soonish.

 

GF

I saw it but it never got anywhere near my paint desk. I didn't manage to add a lick of paint to it...sorry...fail.

      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--arrived 10/31, sent 11/1
      SGhawkins 09--arrived11/2, sent 11/10
      ShadowPhase--arrived 11/13, sent 11/16
      Strawhat--arrived 11/19, sent 12/1
      GlitterWolf--arrived 12/10
      RobinH--arrived 1/8, sent 1/9
      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.

      If my memory is working properly, I think this guy came out a blister pack marked Ral Partha Imports, so he may have originally been a citadel sculpt. In any case, he's older than at least some of you reading this. His paint got pretty badly dinged up in a move, so i decided to fix him up. Which led to a complete repaint. I hope you  like him.

      I made these three guys out of my bits box. The bodies and arms are Wargames Factory Vikings, the heads and weapons are from various other sources. The Wargames Factory bits have rather shallow detail, so I didn't spend too much time painting them. I figure they'll make good village militia and/or bandits. Background figures whose job is to take up space and get killed by either the heroes or the orcs.
