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

 

 

Camo colored glitter!? ::D:

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.

      Ok, I've got the box organized and packed; hopefully I can make to the post office Monday to start it on it's way.
       
      Here's the list:
       
      Ratmaster 2000
      SGhawkins 09
      ShadowPhase
      Strawhat
      GlitterWolf
      RobinH
      Necromancer
      Generic Fighter
      Disserma
      RedAmbrosia
      Ttuckerman
      Fire Eyes
      Chris Palmer
      Sanael
       
      If there's anything left, send it back to me, and it'll get put into the next (regular version) BoGW that happens.
       
      There are enough items included for everyone to make four (4) picks. After you've grabbed some stuff, seal it back up and send it the next person. This is all based on the generosity of people at Reapercon, so there's no need to put anything back in; this is a straight up gift.
      There are 2 pairs of sunglasses in there; they don't have anything to do with Reaper/Reapercon other than that they were in the swag bag, and (I'm guessing) donated by the city of Denton. If you want a pair take 'em, they don't have to count as one of your 4 items, unless your conscience dictates otherwise.
      If you want to help out with international shipping fees (and no one is under any obligation to do so) contact Strawhat, GlitterWolf, or RobinH to work something out.
       
      A big THANK YOU!! to everyone who donated stuff for this to happen.

      This a Bones elf ranger that I started painting a while back and decided to finish just to be done with him. Done to a tabletop standard. Thanks for looking.

      These are a couple figures I picked up at the factory while at Reapercon this year. I painted them over the last week or so; lots of browns and greys. I couldn't manage to get a decent picture, but their eyes are glowing green, too. I hope you like them.
