Box of Goodwill, Basing Edition Round 2 - Chatter Thread

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

 

Click-n-ship shouldn't be an issue, that’s just their online package label thing where you print and apply postage to the package from home. The package is then ready to be dropped off at a retail counter, package slot, or get picked up by the carrier. Think of it as a package postage stamp (but don’t put stamps on the package).

 

The scheduled pickup could be tricky, as it needs to be part of your regular mail carrier’s stop to deliver the regular mail. I was a bit worried about that, being an apartment, but went to fill out that form with an old address at an apartment... and they have a specific box for apartment number. Not sure if that counts as being out of their way, which would possibly entail a fee.

 

But reading the FAQ on their website does say to indicate the location the package will be: mailbox, front door, knock on door, mail room, office, reception, etc (their examples). Easiest would be to leave it where the mail is usually picked up, if that’s some place secure.

Various bush materials, flock, fine sand (good for making flowers), aquarium plants, home made tufts, some odds and ends, some bases I made (my design so no worry about copyright etc), lichen in a couple odd colours, small trees (can cut lil base off to stick on your base etc). Oh and the resin gates, make great rubble or jersey barriers.

There are so many goodies in this box that I don't know what to do with it all.  I've taken bits and pieces of just about everything and OMG.  I almost feel sorry for the next recipient having to sort through it like me.  HAHA

Hey everyone, I've never done one of these before, but I might want to get involved if possible (and it's not too late)

 

I have a bunch of resin bases of various sizes from various companies (WarGamma, DemonScape, TableTop Arts, Dark Arts, etc.) I could contribute.

 

Can I get some details on how this works and if it's possible to still get involved?

 

Thanks!!!

It is a little late for this round but I could add you to the end of the second box after LittleBluberry and before myself, if you would like. We also will probably do another one this one is done. Unfortunately resin bases aren’t exactly what this box is for, it is more for material that you can use to create your own bases. While they are not forbidden we do ask that they be kept to a minimum. Here is the link to the original signup thread which explains the box further.

Ah, OK, got it. I was thinking this was more about actual bases, as opposed to the material needed to make them.

Any chance there might be one of these more open to swapping actual resin bases and such? I'd love to get in on one like that!

 

Thanks!!!

That woulds be the regular flavor of the Box of Goodwill. Our current round is almost finished up, so we should be starting another one soonish. I'll be  making an announcement when it's time.

      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...
