Box of Goodwill round 6 picture/chatter thread

Recommended Posts

My apologies to everyone in my group. I get sent on a business trip and didn't get the box out. It is packed and ready, and will get dropped off ASAP.

Er...  I'm guessing life got in the way?  No hurry, but please keep us informed.

 

 

Yes, afraid so...but tomorrow is a day off from work.  It's fate that I was just clicking on this topic to note that, and the first message is yours. :blink:

Are you trying to use logic on the Reaper forums? We don’t believe in that nonsense around these parts.

The box has been raided and will be on the way to @kristof65 shortly. 

 

Below are the spoils of said raid.  Hoping those downstream enjoy all the goodies still in the box.

Spoiler

Some Ral Partha Hobgoblin/Goblins that will be used as fey and an awesome looking Ral Partha Ogre that will get much use in our Rise of the Runelords game.

 Attention Guindybox folks...

 

 Jack has been without power since the time of his last post, and just got it back. Box will probably be shipping out on Monday.

So, I've been working hard on last minute things for my Box. Put a wash on the Group Paint mini, refilled a few of the basing items, doing a final search through my minis for a few extras to pack in it, ect. In addition, I took a couple pictures of stuff that is going in it, too. I'll include a couple of those in the spoilers below. Enjoy:)

I needed another paycheck to mail the box, but it is on its way. On the plus side, I kept digging through my hoard and adding stuff to the box. The group paint got some of my new color change metallics. I will post pics when I get home.

 Box in process of being repacked and will be shipping bright(ish) and early(ish) tomorrow morning.

 

And just so ya know, y'all suck for making a left-handed person with bad penmanship and bad eyesight write down a long list of stuff in a tiny notebook, lol..  :devil:

Green Skull needs glasses badly.

 

Editing of this post to include pics of what I took will commence later tonight.

 

Okay, taking a sanity break...

 

Pics of what I took:

 

Spoiler

 

    In the back, from left to right:

 

 WotC Aarakocra, four figures from the CMON Massive Darkness game (one of the first two will be lending his axe to the last guy, and the dwarf will be getting a blue and red paintjob because Evil Lawn Gnomes are awesome, lol), then at the end we have Reaper's Con Crud zombie. In front are some bits, a Secret Weapon base with corpses on it, and the head from the Grenadier Julie Guthrie 9906 Golden War Dragon.

 

IMG_7756.JPG.b18b86a6fb2d745a962584fd5ba5fcd6.JPG

 

 

(I took the other parts of the dragon as well, but unfortunately he's never going to be a usable dragon again - Aside from missing a wing and one of his front legs (and the end of his tail) the body is snapped clean off the base and not fixable. There were only two contact points between the dragon and the ground, his tail and his left rear foot, and not only is his tail snapped but he's missing the entire lower half of his leg. :down: )

 

 In the second pic we've got the Darksword Female Ranger w/ Bow, one of the three Reaper 50157: Ladies of the Night who's going to be getting a serious greenstuff clothing makeover as soon as I figure out what I want to do with her, a WotC quasit, the Grenadier Wizzards and Warriors W30 Werewolf (his partner in their original blister pack, the wererat, was one of my first minis I ever owned.), the medusa from the Grenadier Dragon Lords 5002 Monsters box set,  an Oathsworn Heroines in Sensible Shoes rogue, and a Ral Partha 01-065 demon.

And finally, this is what I took from the box:

IMAG0199.thumb.jpg.eff8b9286946aff2ff208df9a0e237c8.jpg

 

First we have a cool plastic toy dragon thing, a couple chronoscope bones, a male/female dancing pair, 2 headed helldorado puppy, and some neat little demon things. 

 

IMAG0200.thumb.jpg.0a452b735106a5be6e6e7d6e449fffbb.jpg

 

Then, there was a big bag of Oakbound fae creatures. I love these so much :wub:. There is a pair of merrow, a handfull of evil looking little goblins, assorted little fae (including a tiny cat dragon), a cool living tree stump (we'll see if I can get it assembled in some sort of reasonable way), and a nuckalevee. Thank you so much, whoever added these. Weird fae things are just about my very favorite minis. 

 

This has to be the best organized box I have ever received. People actually cross things off as they take them and leave a detailed account of what they added. Thanks folks. You all rock!

I'm glad those found a happy home!  I liked them bit was never going to paint them and in thought someone else might enjoy the weird stuff.  Really glad you like them!

      This is a repainted prepaint of a WOTC Dungeons and Dragons figure. I kept the paint scheme mostly the same since I liked it, but I tried to a do a better job. She's got a decent table top paint job now, I hope. I did her to get back into painting after being in a bit of a slump when I lost my job earlier this year. Ahe's actually been done for a while, I've just been bad about taking pictures.
      Anyway, I hope you like her.

      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
