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!

Melting? Minis?


That's horrible. Only minis I'd consider melting are ones that have been run over by a car and completely flattened. All minis have a place and a use.


Except those with leadrot.

I would have said the same, however, I have come to learn that some artistry is not up to normal standards.  also modding and basing leads to much extra material which, as long as it can be traced to its supplier, makes very good melt.

I just ask, that for the people who are taking extra, please don't take extra just to add to your melt pile. I don't expect everyone who takes my minis, to hug them, and love them and name them George, but I do want to find them good homes. Or at least homes that if and when get tired of them, re-gift them to someone else who may one day place paint on them.

Golly I hope people wouldn't do that. The screaming would be enough to keep me up at night.

Sometimes you just need a hand.


 Heh. I actually put a severed hand in the box last round... ::D:   (For my first serious attempt at sculpting a hand, it turned out pretty good...)


And it's mine! I'm planning on making a base of crawling claws and including it among them.



 The Bones mummies would be a pretty decent source of crawling hands if you need more... There's also a severed hand holding onto the pant leg of Berkely, Zombie Survivor that would come off pretty easily.

Here is the faithful DSMiles box. It has been through a lot. I think I will replace it with a new one as it is starting to come apart at the seams.https://flic.kr/p/yQGAgb

Oh, my! Hopefully no one escaped enroute through that big split in the top flap. On behalf of the others in the queue, thank you for providing a replacement. :)

As far as I can tell nothing appears to have slipped out. The box was still well secured with tape, and there really wasn't any loose stuff not in bags or packaging; at least not anything small enough to slip out. Lots of interesting things in the box, including the journal that started in Round one.


There is a container for a group paint figure, which I assume kept Sir Forscale secure during the first round, but it is currently empty. I am seriously considering putting one in after some initial work. It could be another Sir Forscale as I have several, or something else. Any preferences from those that follow, including OneBoot who is the last stop for this box? I have Bones 1 & 2, as well as Stonehaven Dwarves.


The earliest I can send the box on will be Wednesday, but it may not be until Saturday if life gets really busy. We will see.

Waiting (patiently?) to see what Fishnjeeps got outta the Box of Froggyness....



Sorry guys, work has been crazy this week. I just spent Thursday and Friday driving from Chicago to Kentucky and back for work. I'll post pics as soon as I can. I'm still looking at everything that's there...

      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  
      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.
