Box of Goodwill, Basing Edition Round 2 - Chatter Thread

Recommended Posts

Guest

I will get to the box this week now that we're back from Scarborough Fair. Got maybe 3 hours of sleep last night. May go back to bed for now.

 

I perused the box before leaving. Saw a few things. Will delve into my basing stuff to add.

Hopefully there will be a little more space available than there was in the standard BoGW.  if people downstream of me are interested, I can cut some plinths for the box.  I have walnut, osage orange, catalpa and a few other pieces in 1 and 2 inch sizes that I can share.  It would also be good to know what length people like for a plinth, I usually cut 2 and 3 inch lengths but I can do shorter or longer.

 

let me know if people downstream of me are interested, I really do have a surplus of wood to share.

I just realized I never posted all the goodness that I got from the exchange.

 

So here you go.

Several different flocks, several little bags of rock/crushed glass, some dirt, a file pen thing, and a couple little bases I will probably chop up. 

 

 

Can anyone help me identify what this is?  I love it for fround cover and would like to get more.

While perfectly able to do the plinth on my own (decent collection of tools and machines), I wouldn’t be against pulling a couple from the box. Don’t rush to make any on my account, and for those downstream, feel free to take any/all off them should they catch your eye. I don’t have any targeted figure to go on a plinth, so it’ll go for some future unknown use.

I would be interested. I have 1 bust that needs something nice and a couple others that could benefit from plinths. Whatever you are willing to share would be awesome!

Awww I'm jealous I have a bust that I am getting ready to paint but no plinth ::(:

 

I would be curious to see some pictures of the different types of wood to start getting an idea of what I might want.

As promised, rough plinths that i have available.  the woods are, from left to right:

walnut

purpleheart (and i dont have much of this but i can share some

Osage orange (starts out bright yellow.  the longer you leave it exposed without a sealer, the darker orange it will get)

Hickory

Catalpa (its a softer slivery wood with some interesting graining)

 

If there's interest, I will throw some of these in the basing box.

i normally just rough sand them to square them up and leave them unfinished until i use them.  I threw a quick coat of shellac on these to bring out the grain

This is the unmodified wood. (in reverse order because I'm a doofus with a camera)

I can also throw a slant on one side so you can have a cutout

 

looks like:

Thanks!  They are all from my personal stash.  (collecting, its not just for minis any more ::):)   i will probably be doing a WIP on an exposed plinth because i got a few requests and sometimes its the requests and exchanges that keep me painting...

 

i also do pens and some other small turning projects like candlesticks and cups when i put my mind to it.

Is the SGHawkins09 still on the move and I missed it?  I've been out of the country for two weeks.

      Only two groups this time and they are fairly large so make sure to keep the boxes moving. Also you may notice Keianna is listed in both groups, this is intentional as she did not receive a box last time.

      I painted this guy and he seemed like a real ambitious little skeleton. So I had a base I had started for a different project, but ultimately decided not to use, and he seemed worthy and I liked the rocks he came standing on anyways...

      About
       
      There are many companies who make flocking materials, but not many in North America who cater to a gaming audience. My goal is to allow for a varied range of colors that accommodate specific types of terrain, and that complement the environment where your game takes place. Huge Miniatures is the culmination of 6 months of experimentation, in an attempt to make the highest quality of scenic flock and basing materials.
      I've figured out an efficient method for creating realistic foliage, with a range of colors and blends that allows itself to bring your miniatures, role playing campaign or battlefield to life. I'm pleased to share my ideas with you and I hope you can find a place on your table for exciting new terrain!
      A bunch of foam ready to be dyed Some of the colors I've experimented with  
      I wanted to create a more realistic looking foliage without using sawdust, which in my opinion just looks like dyed sawdust. I've experimented with different varieties of foam, and methods of shaping it to resemble foliage. Using foam also allows for the creation of blends containing multiple colors that all stand out and complement each other. After months, I've come across a process that I'm incredibly pleased with. 

      I chose a set of colors that can find use in historic, fantasy, and sci-fi environments. Both the loose foliage and 2mm static grass can find use when basing miniatures, and building terrain.
      Great for grass, tufts, trees, bushes, shrubs, weeds, ground cover, and more!

      Need to work on my basing. Still, I don't think this little Hasslefree piece came out TOO badly.

       Cavewoman stock Hasslefree, from the recent kickstarter; dinosaur, a slightly altered plastic dino I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby; Reaper base; GF9 static grass, with flowers scavenged from a Box Of Goodwill. The tree was the hard part; I needed a prehistoric looking giant conifer, so I started with a metal rod, coated with greenstuff, and began sculpting up, layer by later, with no small effort...  I'm a far worse sculptor than even I think I am... and finally, after completion, I layer painted it with a variety of browns...

      ...and then threw it in the trash and substituted a pine sprout from the yard instead. Sometimes the old ways are the best.
