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. 

 

20180415_101454.thumb.jpg.6fa451819562f06c7bb2da550517be0b.jpg

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.

      So I'm going to be making a diorama for a friend soon. I have a pretty solid idea of what I want to do but no idea how to go about it. I've never worked with cork before and am going to be using quite a bit of it. I want to pour water effects(?) into it but don't want the cork to soak it up. My questions are (photos to be added below for reference):
       
      How do I seal the cork so it won't absorb the resin water effects? Do I need to seal the wood I am basing it on as well? If so what is the best way to do that? What is the best glue to put the cork on the wood, sealed or not?  
      ETA: 
      How do I fix the small hairline cracks in the cork (not sure if they're visible in the picture)? Kind of related but what is the best glue for plastic to wood (I'm going to be putting the wood on top of a painted Tropicana lid)?

      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've made no secret about my opinions on Games Workshop. Though my painting box is full of their miniatures they were always bought second and sometimes third hand (I never wanted GW to get any of my money). Even my previous Cadians were bought from my local games store that has no affiliation with GW (I also know those sets and blisters came with the business when it was bought almost twenty years ago). Now I find myself in the unique position of building a Cadian army.
       
      My wife and I used to play weekly in D&D Adventure League but with the birth of our first child it looks like that won't be possible (We want to continue gaming at our current store but its a bit of drive and the kid is at the rolling stage so she doesn't want to be held or sit in her seat; she wants to be on the floor and we all know what gameshop floors are like). I've offered to watch the child so she can go or to switch off each week but she only wants to go together. Gaming together has always been part of our relationship, and she doesn't want to lose that. I couldn't agree more, its good to share a hobby with your spouse.
       
      That's when our friends started trying to recruit us to play Warhammer 40K with them. At first I was resistant but our friends get together often to play and in our area its always possible to find a game (Depending on the size it can be played fairly quickly in comparison to D&D too). After some discussion we decided 40K would give me something to paint, but it would also give us both something to play and eventually something to play together.
       
      Which brings us to this new project. Since I figured watching me assemble miniatures would be pretty boring I'm starting this thread right before I prime them. So here is most of my assembled starter set (I've got quite a few cheap sets of bits arriving over the next couple weeks and I'm not exactly sure what unit I'd like to create next so that's why I have so many unfinished figures).
       
      I'm still not a big fan of GW but having an excuse to see our friends more often is pretty nice. In a way we're kinda trading one gaming group for another (that sounds pretty mean but I think you understand what I'm saying).

      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...
