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.

 

Oh! OK, got it!

Awesome - I'd love to get in on it then! :)

Will the basing box be coming to Reapercon?  Need to size my luggage accordingly.  @Dragoneye of you're going to be there I can take it from you and save you the shipping.  If your not or it won't fit, no worry.

nice haul @Dragoneye  I like the crystals.  I am assuming its a normal medium shipping box?  I will be able to fit those dimensions in my stuff.  I am bringing spare suitcases and there are 4 of us going so weight will not really matter either.

 

Thanks for asking though.  Looking forward to seeing you next week!

I somehow keep missing the signup for the basing box, but I can't resist checking out the thread anyway. Maybe I won't miss the sign up next time.

Box is home safe.  Thanks everyone at reapercon for cross pollination and taking enough stuff that everything now fits in the box!

 

Hope to have out late this week

Due to work related reasons, it was me that had to get out the door early this weekend,  I'll have the box out by Monday of next week.

I mostly took little samplings of a bunch of colors of flock and rocks. I'm really looking forward to playing with it all, and I even was able to add in some goodies I found in my family's craft hoard :)

Great haul!  Glad to see some of my stuff going to a new home!

 

 

And sorry, I thought I had posted this but apparently it slipped my mind.

The cork was more because it wouldn't fit back in the box with other things.  The two medicine bottles contain some of the small and large birch seeds (leaf litter)

 

Finally the warhammer scenery kit found immediate use in my kill team bases.

 

Thanks everyone!  Lots of Good things to enjoy!

      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!

      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.

      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).
