The Guindyloo Box is on its way to Green Eyed Monster.

 

I would like to drop in a word of praise for MadJack who bagged, identified, and labeled everything. Wow!

 

Pictures to follow soon ...

Sorry for the long delay in pictures.  Been travelling a lot lately and trying to integrate new job duties.  I didn't grab a huge amount but loved what I got

Someone was kind enough to add a dragon I'd given as a gift many year ago which is lovely because we've gone different ways. Some space marines whom will either become part of my grey knights or prisoners of my eldar.

 

The Mon Calimoarian is destined to become "Guppi" from a book series I came across and adored.  

 

Thanks to everyone, this is always great fun!  And special thanks to this selfless people who keep putting this together

 

Ohhh, lovely!

This is the Guindyloo Box group paint. It came plain, so I primed it with Reaper Brown Liner and then painted the duster in mixed shades of Phthalocyanine Blue, Burnt Umber, and Titanium White. I hope it is okay. I felt exceedingly nervous while painting it.

Here is what I took. Many MANY thanks to MadJack for identifying and labeling everything!

There was a big ziplock bag full of these grey plastic guys from CMON Massive Darkness. There are lots more. I picked out some for dungeon mooks.

I especially liked these guys. I plan to paint them up like Rien Poortvliet "Gnomes." ::D:

There are some more of these green plastic aliens in the box. It looks like they have little helmets to glue on.

DSC_0819.jpg.fbe35ab46bdbfa1d375eca3104fddcd2.jpg

 

These were labeled as "Unknown Historicals", one lead one from Ral Partha and two unknown. I believe they are all ancient Persians.

These Harvesters from Dark Age look interesting, although those little arms look like they might be a nuisance to glue / pin. Female is face down because of nudity.

Two old vintage lead Shadowrun groups from Grenadier. Left: Grenadier Shadowrun 1319 Ancients Gang. Right: Grenadier Shadowrun 1318 Leather Devils Gang.

DSC_0822.jpg.8e1aa1f4e9598bd8c0a227eb956854d6.jpg

 

These are two vintage lead "Phagon Battle Clones with Laser Rifles" from Hobby Products Metal Magic Spacelord -- it looks like the sku might be C3224. On the right is an old Games Workshop ludicrous battle mummy.

This is Ral Partha AD&D 11-442, Giant Toad and 02-950, Undead Ninja

And a few modern figures: Two plastic  Nolzur's Female Halfling Rogues; Reaper's 14509, Varashia, Vale Archer Sergeant; and Reaper's 03004, Dorva, Dark Elf.

Yeah!  One of my few things added was picked out right away! :)  Was not sure if anyone would be interested in that but figured I would drop it in.  I ran across some of the nice wooden mini holders I wanted to add but did not even look for them since there was barely enough room for more minis.

Rien Poortvliet is Dutch.

In 1976 I got a book for Christmas from my parents.

It was Rien Poortvliet "Vossen hebben Holen" ( Foxes have dens) and my father had drawn a little christmas decoration on the first blank page.

I still have it.

Oooh, good stuff in Massive Darkness!

I'm convinced the "Dwarves" were originally supposed to be Redcaps or Gnomes from their design being so different than previous Dwarves in their line (or the playable ones in the same box)

I wonder if those Mars Attack guys are the ones I placed in the last round of the Goodwill box. I can't recall who's group I was in last time. If they are I'm glad they found a home. I originally picked a box up just for the helmet bubble. I needed to make a conversion, but the bubble was too small.

Like David and the Gnomes?  Did anyone ever watch that show?

 

Edit:  After a Google search I found out the name of the show was actually "The World of David the Gnome".  (Sorry it was like 30+ years ago and was on for like 1 season)

 

 

In other news, the box the @Smokestack sent to me is "Out for Delivery" according to the tracking which is 1 day earlier than I expected.  Also the grass tufts that I ordered from Shadow's Edge Miniatures is also "Out for Delivery"! 

 

Work cannot go by fast enough!

Yes, it was still big when I was a yoot and my name was also David, so I heard endlessly about it and got gifts themed around it before TMNT became life.

I even had a Gnome Barbarian named "The Weaselbreaker" after those being the only unfriendly animals in the forest toward them.  I remember the original book inspired a lot of other fictional field guides...I kept trying to get a copy of the Giants one but every Amazon shipper has sent one that looks like it was recovered from a crate at the bottom of the sea.

I remembr there were a lot of copycat field guide type books after “Gnomes”’s success. The “Fairies” one by Brian Froud is the only one I can recall that really took off.

@Pingo The two unknown archers are Persians from Warlord Games Hail Caesar.

 

Oooh, thanks!  I thought they looked Persian.

@Glitterwolf, sound the hunting horn and recall the pack. Let beleaguered mailmen around the world rejoice!

 

The one true box grows nearer!

 

(Cue deep and distant drumming, punctuated by the howls of distant and glittery wolves)

 

One box to rule them all, one box to find them,One box to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

      Welcome to the 7th round of the Box of Goodwill! You may have heard about the fabled 'Box of Goodwill'. Maybe you were involved last time, maybe you're new and would like to see what it's all about.
       
      Well, you're in the right place!! Read on:
       
      This is the official, soon to be patented sign up thread for round 7.
       
      As before, please provide the following info in your replies to this thread:
      Where you live
      If you'd be willing to ship internationally (more expensive)
      If you want to be a box starter (depending on the amount of interest)
       
      There has been a minor rules clarification made. There is also a slight change. Even if you were involved in any of the previous versions, please make sure you read them carefully.
       
      Basically, put some stuff you don't want/will never get to/think other people will find cool into a box and send it to someone else. That recipient will take out whatever interests them, replace a like amount of stuff and ship it to the next person in line. And so on. The last person will send it back to the coordinator ( the person who originally sent out one of the boxes ).

      What's allowed:

      1)ANY miniature

      1a) this means any material, any genre, any manufacturer, any subject matter. If you put lead in, please label it somehow                (separate baggy or whatever)

      2)Anything mini related

      2a) bases, basing material (please package this very securely, and label it), terrain, scenic bits, whatever.

      3) Free stuff--leftover bits, drawings, etc. Please label these items as 'free' or 'giveaway'. If you want some of this stuff, take it, you don't have to match it.
       
      3a)Please limit the amount of non-miniatures related items to whatever will fit into a standard sized Ziploc sandwich bag if it is bulky. Drawings/sketches take up next to no 
           space at all and don't need to be stuffed into said baggy.
          
      3a-1)Use common sense. Also, if you have some hand-crafted, custom-built shark skin and mithril dice bags or whatever that you're certain everyone will love, PM 
               your coordinator and the folks in your circuit and see what everyone thinks of the idea. Majority rules.     
              
       4) Keep it reasonable; try not to put in anything larger than 54mm. That's gonna eat up a lot of space, and create a lot of 'what's it worth' questions.

      What's NOT allowed:

      1)Paint/liquid

      2)Perishable items
       
      3)Exceptionally bulky, non miniature related items. Donate that 7th extra copy of the Player's Handbook to someone that you game with.

      How it works:

      A coordinator will put  together a box of stuff and send it out to 8-10 people in his/her circuit. When you receive the box, take out whatever you like and replace it with a like amount of stuff.The value of what you replace should be equal to or slightly exceed whatever you take. We're gonna use the honor system here, so it's going to be somewhat subjective. Trades should be on a one-for-one basis, unless you're taking something big, in which case it's one-for-two or more.
       For example: If you see 4 orcs that you want, take them and replace them with 4 other roughly man-sized figures. If there's a         
       larger figure (54mm ) that you want, take it, and replace it with either 1 similarly sized figure, or 2-3 man sized figures. Once you're
       finished, pack it up and send it to the next person in line.
       
      Here are some other specifics:
      1)The coordinator will put together a box and start it on it's way. Each coordinator will pm me with the tracking info of the box as it sets out to the first recipient. After this, each recipient will pm the tracking number to their coordinator (the person who started the box) AND the person that they're shipping it to.
       
      2)Participants will publicly announce when they have received the package (pictures would be cool, but aren't mandatory), and again when they send it off to the next person.
      For example: I received the box o' goodwill from Chaoswolf. When ready to ship, 'I'm sending the box to Pingo'.
       
      2a)Participants will also be responsible for contacting the next person and getting their shipping information. The people involved in any given circuit will be public knowledge, so feel free to exchange shipping info how/whenever you wish.
       
      3)Each participant will have 1 week from the arrival of the box to make their swaps and then send the box on to the next person. This is really important, we had several boxes sitting for several weeks with no movement in the last go around. 
       
      4) For participants in the USA, shipping will be via flat rate boxes. Tracking and insurance are included in the cost. In the event of loss, the person mailing the box will make the insurance claim and use the proceeds to purchase items to fill and ship a replacement box.
       
      5) I'm anticipating roughly 3-4 months for each box to make a complete circuit (8-10 people x 1week per person + travel time). Once all boxes have completed the circuit (returned to the coordinator), we'll open up a new sign up thread and start the process over again if there's interest. Coordinators will need to pm me so I know that all circuits are complete.
       
      6) This will be open to everyone. We have had several people express willingness to run/participate in a circuit for the newer members; I feel that this somewhat offsets any concerns about anyone's 'reliability'. Perhaps I'm a little naive, but the feeling I'm getting from both public posts and pm's is that everyone really seems to want this to work. Newer members are defined as anyone who hasn't been active on the boards for a year,or without at least one completed exchange.
       
      7) Sign ups will end Midnight September 5th (east coast time). There will be a little wiggle room allowed here to allow for different time zones and whatnot. Once I get up the following morning, it's closed. I'll figure out how many people are involved, how many groups there are, who's going to coordinate and post that information in the first post of the chatter thread.
       
      8) Individual coordinators are able to exercise a bit of leeway within their circuit. They will be setting up the initial package, so they can just stuff a box, or do a quick survey of everyone in their circuit to determine preferences. If they want to suggest everyone slap a color on Sir Forscale (or his designated representative), that's up to them. I'm thinking that the coordinators can run things pretty smoothly. If there's a question or concern, hit them up. Coordinators: if you're not sure how to proceed, hit me up and we'll work it out.
       
      9) if something comes up and you need to drop out for whatever reason (life happens), please contact your coordinator as soon as possible so that he/she can make the necessary adjustments.
       
      10)The group paint figure is not mandatory, just a little something extra for those who are so inclined.
       
      11) Have fun!
       
       
      Ok, I'm pretty sure I've covered everything. If I missed something, or it's unclear, please bring it up in the chatter thread, or PM me.
      Don't add it here.
       
      Suggestions for a different 'group paint' figure and/or title can go in the chatter thread, too.
       
       
      ETA---I don't want to make any assumptions here. Even if you were in the other rounds, please indicate if you'd like to do round 7. Thanks
