The past couple Reapercons that I've been at, I have noticed a fair amount of swag bag/con exclusive figures that people didn't want getting tossed onto the melt table and/or left laying around.

I had the idea of collecting all the unwanted stuff, putting it in a box and shipping it around to folks who couldn't get to the 'con so that they could sort of 'be there, too'.

 

Unlike the regular BoGW, people donating wouldn't get anything out of the box, they would just be 'throwing away' the stuff they don't want in a slightly different direction. Maybe there would be a ribbon involved, maybe it might just be the thanks of people who will benefit done the line.

 

This isn't a for sure thing, I'm just testing the waters to see what people think of the idea.

So, what do you think?

 

 

Mods: I know this is sort of a mini exchange, but I thought it might make more sense to be here. If it belongs elsewhere, my apologies for creating more work for you.

Any chance of some Europeans getting into this?

I'm open to it; it depends on the overall level of interest, and whether or not at least one person is willing to ship internationally.

Pretty sure you will be able to hit up the Awesome Wife to rifle through her things she would never paint. Probably quite a bit, since she's a mousling and animal  fan. I'll warn her a crazed metal head might be doing that.

That's a good idea, too. That would be up to the individual, of course.

 

 

 

Just a quick note, though: this isn't a sign up thread to be on the receiving side; this is purely to gauge interest/see who would want to contribute.

Depending on how it works out, I'll set up a sign up thread afterwards.

I'm not going to ReaperCon and already conscripted a ninja shopper. I support this idea and thank you good folk for being so well... good. If I was there I would chip in. Go help the people who need minis! ::D: So future me hopefully in ReaperCon2018 will join!

As someone who can't go, I wholeheartedly support is idea!

 

If there was some sort of way we could pay it back to everyone who donates that would be even better!  You could treat it as a standard Box of Goodwill as soon as it leaves Reapercon with anyone donating given the chance to sign up to be on the end  of the circuit, with the idea that they could then take out stuff without the requirement that they put in since they already payed it forward at the start.

I am going to Reapercon this year. I usually get some swag I don't really need. And I would be happy to add it to a growing Goodwill box that will get sent out to people who are unable to attend this year.

      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)

      As I'm starting to find a lot of my Bones minis I will never use and Bones 4 bringing me another bunch, along with minis from other games and such.. is there any interest in a Bones/plastic only BOGW?
