Finally a picture of what i took   i've been wanting to try painting pewter a bit more, as I'm mostly a Bones painter, so I took some interesting looking pieces to try out on

I forgot to share what I snagged out of the DSmiles box. And of course, this had to be framed and hung up. Weird lighting due to Halloween decorations.

Group paint! He's awesome!

Eh, I am House Figmentius.  if its neat and original it will be pulled for my enjoyment, if i have one (or two...or three. err) then i will part with them.  i have children headed for college I figure what I collect now I can paint during the years when i am paying college bills. 

 

What we put in we want others to take and enjoy, but at the same time this was not meant to be a burden on anyone.  if you are new, young, poor, or just dont have the money for minis right now, take some.  one of the rest of us will fill in the blanks.  The most important point is to have fun!

Exactly this.

I, uh, didn't pull out as much as I could have. There's some way neat stuff in there. I didn't want to be greedy, and I reckon folks downstream will appreciate them too.

I'm sure I will, though I've got some interesting additions for this round too...

And I'm still waiting to know if our box has even started its circuit yet. :-P

 

Chris,  I am still waiting on Dsmiles to send the box.  Sounds like real life interrupted his plans to send it Monday.

 

Yeah, he's been super busy with RL stuff. I'm sure it'll go out soon!

It's a shame this won't fall around am Rcon again. That was beautiful timing. The meeting of the boxes was amazing and I think it greatly enriched the boxes to the next person because of it.

 

 

And there's something oddly satisfying about being nosy and seeing all the awesome art, extras and stuff other people out into their box.

 

There's always round 4 (or 5).

 

 

I know it says newer folks can take a few extra, but I would feel bad. D:

 

I have maybe 20 minis (really 20, not just "20" 20), and while I know there's a couple I could place in the box, they are all pretty new - everyone probably has them already! Would people in group 1 be interested in character portraits or something extra? Because I don't have basing materials to throw in there either, and drawings are listed as free in the FAQ post   ::(:

 

DO NOT feel bad, take 2-3 extras. This is precisely why CW started this and what the "goodwill" means. There are those of us who have put in extra things for people like yourself.

 

Art like that is very cool and everyone seems to really enjoy it.

 

 

Seriously. In the past we have had far more trouble with people putting too much stuff back  in. :wacko:

      An old friend from college is finally getting married so in addition to their more traditional wedding gift my wife and I decided to make them something as well. While my wife opted for a nice cross stitch wall hanger, I went my usual route of miniatures. As luck would have it I even pulled the perfect miniature from the last round of the Box of Goodwill.
       
      Since I first met him my friend has always been a fan of Fallout, way more than I ever got into it. As a fan he owns all the games, has some Fallout wall art throughout his house, and even owns a large bucket filled with bottle caps; like I said he's a fan. So as a bonus wedding present I decided to paint up Astro Girl as the Nuka Cola girl.
       
      This being a present I even attempted some simple eyes, a step I usually ignore.

       
      I think he'll get a kick out of it and who knows my handiwork may even get a spot on the mantelpiece right next to his bottle of Nuka Cola Quantum.

      Here we go again . . .
       
      In the simplest terms, this is a basing version of the Box of Goodwill. Those of us who have a lot basing materials will be able to share our wealth with those new to basing. Others might have interesting bits and pieces that they use and want to add some to inspire others. Or you might have easy access to certain materials that others do not.
       
      Due to the nature of some of the materials in the box, at this time the box will only be making the rounds in the US.
       
      Please provide the following info in your replies to this thread:
      Where you live
      If you want to be a box starter or can contribute to seeding a box 
       
      What's Going In:
      Any structural basing material: cork, plasticard, bark, branches, sand, etc Any decorative basing material: leaves, flock, static grass, tufts, etc Bits and Pieces: electronics, gears, beads, stones, etc Scenic elements Plinths Premade and stamped bases, try to not overwhelm the box with these No miniatures, that is what the regular BoGW is for  
      Note:
       
      If you are sending natural materials that you collected yourself, please take necessary steps to get rid on any unwanted nasties. Some methods mentioned in the interest thread were a quick dip in some bleach water and then rinse and dry off and/or baking.
       
      Please make sure everything is properly packaged, sealed, and labeled.
       
      Basic Info:

      Into a medium flat rate box will go a bunch of basing material. Then the box will be sent off to those in the circuit. As a one to one exchange of materials might be difficult for those newer to basing, this will work more off an honor system in that you add what you can but take what you need. As we all know in basing, a little can go a long way. So in the box will be some small baggies that will allow you to take what you need without having to take it all. For example, if there is a large bag of flock or gravel, you would be able to take a little instead of having to take the whole bag. Once you have gotten what you need and added what you can, you will pack it up and send it on.
       
      More Details:
      The box starters will put together their box and start it on its way. We will PM the tracking info of the box to the first recipient and then each recipient after that will PM the tracking number to myself AND the person that they're shipping it to. Participants will post in the arrival/departure thread when they have received the package and again when they send it off to the next person. They can post pictures of what they took in the chatter thread but it is not mandatory. Participants are responsible for contacting the next person in line and getting their shipping information. The order of the circuit will be public knowledge, so feel free to exchange shipping info how/whenever you wish. If the next person does not provide their shipping information within a reasonable amount of time, they will be skipped. You will have 1 week from time of arrival to take a look and make your choices before sending it on its way. Shipping will be via a medium flat rate box. Tracking and insurance are included in the cost. In the event of it not arriving at it intended destination, the person that mailed the box will make the insurance claim and use the proceeds to purchase items to fill and ship a replacement box. Sign ups will end Midnight February 9th (Pacific Time).  Once I know who is participating, I will figure out the order, and put up the Arrival/Departure thread. The order will be in the first post of both it and the Chatter thread. We will aim to get the boxes sent out to the first person by February 17th. If something comes up and you need to drop out for whatever reason or your place in line needs to be adjusted, let me know as soon as possible so I can make the necessary adjustments.  
      I think that is it, if there is something I missed or you need more information ask in the Chatter thread or PM me.
