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.

I don't think I posted my goodies from the box so here they are (if I did, and forgot ignore this :P)


Stuff I took out:



Stuff I put in:




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

      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...

      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.
