I have a question about the Box of Goodwill for the people who participate; what do you hope to find when the box comes to you? What do you look forward to finding? For me it is two things. First really old metal minis especially Mithril or Minifigs that can go in my collection. Secondly I often go for miniatures from recent kickstarters that I didn't back, but was tempted by. Often with these, the backers' reward is a large group of minis, some I might want and many I don't. I pass on these more often than not because I really don't need large numbers of miniatures I probably wont paint, just to get a few I will. So for me, being able to get these second chance minis is a big plus for the Box of Goodwill.

What about you guys?

I'm the complementary: i tend to back Kickstarters and buy discounted/clearance collections (that tend to have multiples of the same sculpt) so I'm looking to trade my duplicates or ones that I don't want for more variety or things i missed. or more kobolds for RCL because those seem like the easiest trios to get. maybe see some things I haven't come across before.

This last round was the first one I participated in, so I really had no idea what to expect.  For the next one, though, I am also looking for old metal minis.  I don't have anything that deserves to be called a "collection," but I really like the style of a lot of the older sculpts.  Last time I grabbed some miniatures from different manufacturers, to expand beyond the Reaper, old-style metal, and the occasional WizKids models that make up the bulk of my miniatures, so I think I will look to do that again.  Mostly, though, I hope to find monsters for which I do not yet have minis, and I will probably try to take at least one that is just a little bit strange.

Primarily looking for science fictionesque minis (not too stressed about exact type, tbh), or atypical monsters that can be used as beasties for same. 

 

I also love seeing the big CMON games broken up and distributed, when available, because often I'm going to want one or two of random hostile, not, like, a dozen all in the same pose - but I can absolutely understand why those rarely wander through.

1) Old metal GW figs, mostly from their chaos ranges, but there are a few other old sculpts of theirs that I like, too.

 

2) Anything useful/relevant to my current project.

 

3) Like many of you, I also look for figures from split up KS that I skipped.

 

4) Anything that strikes my fancy.
