Box of Goodwill round 6 picture/chatter thread

Recommended Posts

I am Mad, Disgusted, and Disappointed all at the same time today.

I received a package today that was the shipment of 4 lots of the Watchmakers Gear Files that Jen Haley and Anne Foerster talk about in their painting DVD.

The envelope was empty.

It had an official Post Office stamp on it declaring it to be empty when received by my delivering Post Office.

I've already notified the seller.

The items were shipped in a manila envelope.

Apparently without the benefit / precaution of any packaging prior to being poured into the envelope.

It appears that due to normal handling in transit the very small pieces of metal [many of which are very pointy at both ends] worked a hole through the manila envelope and are now scattered all over the continent.

I just hope that none of them fouled/damaged any of the sorting/handling equipment along the way.

Since the seller didn't even take the precaution of running a line of sealing tape over the bottom of the envelope I am taking the position that it is all on him.

I will have to wait a long time before I find more of these tools at anything even close to what I paid for them, basically a $10 to $15 tool for less than $2 each.

Worst part is I was intending to share my good fortune with those on my BoGW Circuit.

Thanks.

You are one of my peeps in the BoGW Circuit who would have received a share of my bounty.  :down:

For those in the Rob Dean circuit, there’s a group paint giant still in progress...

 

I should have it on its way by Saturday. It’s getting a little full; I think it might be safe to take a little more than you put in, especially if you’re new. Or I’ll have to break the rules and use a large box. 

:rolleyes:

@Arc 724 - You may need to leave a small section of the box untouched, least you awaken..... the glitter

Was tempted to purchase glitter for the box. But not sure I want people down my list to be mad at me. ^.^

I like glitter. Though I try to respect the wishes of people who hold the opposite opinion. I used to live with one.

Apologies to everyone downriver of me. I didn't know we were rolling until FireEyes messaged me this morning. It's on its way now, though.

 

I'm out from here, having fully nailed down the title of most irresponsible box-starter ever, so if you have any trouble/questions/whatever, holler at new box-master Inarah, I guess.

 

Enjoy.

I’m sure there have been many people who had a later start than you.

I wouldn't fuss too much. Have heard nothing from @Guindyloo, and the list claims she's starting the box thread I'm in. ^^;

*casts Summon Xenomorph Queen, insures plenty of hapless vi- err.. volunteers are available*

 

I'm .. not anxious, or anything. Honest. >.>

Sorry, the week got away from me. 3 months in and I’m just starting to feel like maybe I might possibly have a chance of getting settled into my new job. Or it could continue to spiral downward to a fresh level of hell. Who knows!

I’ll get the box sent as soon as I can though.

      This is one of the figures I nabbed from the recent BoGW.  Our group is currently running Rise of the Runelords, so my husband the DM was very happy to gain another ogre.  It is hard to tell in the photos, but the nasty looking sword in back was done in folkart color shift green flash paint for a nasty looking magic weapon.

      This is an old Mage Knight figure that I slightly converted and repainted. He was holding a comically undersized flail in his left hand, so I cut it off and replaced it with a halberd from an old GW Chaos Warrior I had in my bits box. After that, it was just a matter of repainting him for use on the tabletop. He'll make an interesting BBEG in some game I haven't created yet.
       

       

       

       
      Thanks for looking.

      These are 3 little imps/demons that I pulled off the melt table at Reapercon last year. I'm not sure of manufacturer, so if you recognize them, please let me know. I think they may be from a 15mm figure range.
       
      I bashed these guys out over he course of a couple evenings about a week ago. Thanks for looking.
