I have not heard back from Aryanun but I do know she is going through some stuff. I will be getting a replacement box out sometime this week, most likely Friday. 

 

If you want help filling it, let me know!

Thanks for the offer but it is packed and will be sent off today. I had actually been doing some organizing of my basing stuff and had a bunch stuff that I don't need/want anymore so it is pretty full.

Speaking of boxes, what's the status of the Dilvish box?  Got some travelling to do at the end of the month and beginning of July and I don't want it to just sit for a week waiting for me to return.

I finally got a chance to rummage through the box today.  It's crammed full of interesting stuff.  Got a couple things picked out to add to it.  Just got to figure out how to stuff it back in the box.  I'll post a pic of my selections tonight or tomorrow when I get some space cleared.  Should be shipping out to @Clearman tomorrow or Friday.

I worry the same. Near constant travel second half of July and August.

Here's what I picked out:

Grabbed a couple of bases, a block of wood, a bag of little rocks, and a flower looking thing.

 

I think I'm going to put an IMEF soldier on that alien looking base.

Sorry again! Mr. Mouse is sending it out for me in the next couple of days (Probably Sat.).

Did the box ship? Nothing has arrived here.

Sorry everyone. Having trouble shipping. I'm not going to participate in the future due to this. I'm going to send it as soon as I figure out how to ship without going to the post office.

 

...I apologize again. Been dealing with a move plus continuous brain weasels...I am starting to believe I shouldn't have signed up in the first place.

USPS click-n-ship, followed up by requesting a pickup that can be scheduled is probably your best bet if you’re struggling to make it to the PO. Abother option might be a local grocery store or Ace Hardware. Several around here offer USPS services at the customer service desk. 

ETA: Abother? Another. But... kind of amusing.

Do you know if you can use click-n-ship in an apartment?

      Several friends helpfully pointed out that before I started throwing wild ideas at Ma'al's base, I should probably practice them somewhere else first. That base is on my February list, so I gotta get practicing!
       
      Blightfang:
      - Completely covered giant base.
      - No integrated parts. I chopped 'em off.
      - Water with a "live" edge!
      - The first dragon I owned, blessed upon me by my first Box of Goodwill group, and a perfect fit for a Silversage dragon.
       
      Narthrax:
      - Plain, round, smaller base.
      - Rocks from his original base are staying.
      - Probably no water.
      - He's just plain cool. He's gonna be my Boelen's python!
       
      I used PVA glue to put the cork together, and hot glued everything to the bases. Thank you for your sacrifices, peanut butter and pickle lids!

       
      I fell in love with Paepercut's youtube channel after @Clearman mentioned it in my Ma'al thread. Y'all. That guy is SO COOL. The vast majority of the things I'll be doing here are from his videos. And if I don't think they are, they probably still are because I'm forgetful like that.   Onward!
       
      Actually. Onward in a little bit. I gotta go check out the nearest store and see if they have distilled water for the next steps. Be right back!

      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)?

      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).
