Box of Goodwill round 5 picture/chatter thread

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. 

 

That's what I meant by making it optional....not putting unwanted pressure on people if they would find that timeline stressful - some of us are very slow painters so even doing something small can be daunting in the whirlwind of the week. They should know that it's ok to pass.

 

I don't know. I'm not wording well this week. Mush brain.

I have had a bit of trouble with the group painted figures too because of the way I paint.

 

The way I paint normally, I'm constantly checking the effect over the entire surface.  I often adjust the paint job elsewhere when I see something that could be improved with whatever I have on my brush at the moment.  I'm constantly tweaking and trying things.

 

But in a group paint that would mean painting on top of other people's work, and I can't bring myself to do that.  Even a wash seems impertinent.

 

Clearly there are people who do great with group paints and enjoy them. I might not be one of them.

The order was completely randomly generated.

(I rolled dice::D:)

 

But did you test them in salt water first?

I certainly hope so. Fun being had would be cool, too.

Nope. Let the results fall where they will!

 Speaking of lead... Is anyone in Bonwirn's group partial to the really old-school lead stuff like Asgard and Archive, or should I not bother to put it in? How about Grenadier and the TSR stuff?

4 looks interesting.

 

Also my name was spelled wrong on the list.    :-)

I suspect, thanks to all the old Ral Partha Dragonlance stuff I have scrounged from the Bay of Evil, that I have sufficient lead in my collection. I do not speak for others, however.

 

Does anyone object to finding random basing materials? No, there will not be actual moss, or lichen (I have a lot of both, but somehow, it seems unwise to ship those who-knows-where)...

I like #4.

Am I last? (What is #4?)

If so, I could fix him up with a base.

      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
      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.

      I pulled these goblins and hobgoblins from the BoGW a couple months ago to paint as some sort of evil fey.  The DM and I eventually decided to paint these guys up as Spriggan that could be used as Redcaps if needed.  C&C welcome.
      WARNING: There are a lot of pics.
      The whole group

      The Enlarged Spriggans (formerly hobgoblins)

      And the normal sized Spriggan (formerly goblins)
