So....I would like to point out that it would have to be trusted forumites that can take from the box. While I think it's a good idea in theory, greed can set in and a 20 post forumite with no avatar that's only replied to a handful of posts could easily just keep the box and ghost....

You know what would be awesome, is if we could work out a deal with our friends across the Atlantic to swap swag boxes. I have seen all kinds of stuff come up on ebay.uk after Salute each year. It would be a bit problematic that the conventions are months apart though. Ideally it would be best if there were a convention in Canadia like right between the two conventions. That way the shipping costs might me smaller (US to CA to UK), and the Canadians could participate.

I think the odds are pretty small that this would happen. If someone did just keep the box, the person who sent it to them knows who are and what their address is. I suppose they could pretend to have not received the box, but still it would be that person making the claim. And that would look a little suspicious later on.

Also if you think about it, that would be a lot of hassle to go to just to scam some miniatures that you might not even want. It would be more lucrative to scam people on bartertown or the miniatures exchange. You would of course get barred as a bad trader, but you would get figures you want.

That's a possibility, too.

 

Do you mean looking for unwanted swag figures that got tossed onto the melt table or just anything that happens to look cool on the melt table?

Good question. If the box is limited to con swag, I can pull those that make it to the melt table. Cause anything that looks cool is subjective.

I think swag should be the big thing, but if there's space in the box, let's fill the sucker up! 

Exactly.

Cool! Hold that thought; I'll probably be reaching out to you afterwards.

Not going either, but if I qualify as a recipient, I'd be happy to throw in some cash towards the shipping.

Alright, we're gonna give this a shot and see how it works out.

 

Please be aware that this is ME doing this. Reaper has nothing to do with it, other than saying they don't mind me doing it at Reapercon.

 

So, if there are questions, concerns, or complaints, please don't give Reaper a hard time about it.

      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)
