The travels of Sir Forscale and friends Round 3 chatter/photo thread


Recommended Posts

 

ooo! Ponies! Post a picture of the ponies! :wub:

Not sure who made these, I know I've seen them before.attachicon.gifDSCN9179.jpg

They're by Slap Miniatures, part of their ponies line. They might be Kickstarter exclusives. One is the Doctor Pony and I believe the other is his companion, but it's been a while and I'm not entirely sure...

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!

Someone is going to have to start taking more stuff.

DH took the entire bag of bones from our box and gave it to a guy at work who is just starting to paint. I hope that's not going to upset anyone. We gave him a bunch of our spare paint too. He has young kids and is trying to teach them to play various mini games.

 

I already have an interesting assortment of replacement minis ready.

 

I know it's not my box, but I think that sound perfectly reasonable.

 

Anyone take any of the bones conversions I did from our box? I think I did 4-5 total if memory serves me.

Pics? :huh:

Oh dear, I'm sorry, I didn't realize there were conversions. I saw Bones and since I already had most of them thanks to the Kickstarters I figured on letting others have them. I didn't think to look at them closely, I'm afraid.

I had them in a separate Baggie and marked it as such. Not sure if someone before you grabbed some or not ::D:

Many apologies to the Boot Box group; the universe seemed utterly determined to prevent me from sending out the box in a timely manner. This included getting sick a second time, the post office being out of the right size box not once, not twice, but THREE times. I finally went to the one that was 45 minutes further away because I was tired of trying my local one. THEN, as I was about to pull out of my apt parking lot to deliver it today, a passerby pointed out that one of my tires was flat; turns out it had a big ol' screw stuck in it. So I pulled back in and changed it for the spare (all by myself, I might add *flex* ^_^ ), only to discover before I went 5 feet that the spare was also flat. Both of those have now been corrected, but not in time for me to make it to the post office before it closed.

 

Tl;dnr - Boot Box will be launched tomorrow (Saturday), even if I have to walk it all the way to the post office and hand it to the mailman myself! :P

 

The only thing I'm sad about is that I REALLY wanted to include some Stomp of Approval ribbons, since I still have several left over, but I've looked high and low and even *gasp* tidied up all over and still can't find them. ::(: Karma of course dictates that I'll find them tomorrow in an obvious spot after it's too late to include them.  <_<

 

I'll take a picture tonight of what I removed from the box and post it tomorrow once the box is safely in the time-space vortex of the postal system. ::): I think Dsmiles will really like the group figure I picked out; I've started it off with a fun conversion! Everyone down the line can choose to put paint on it, convert it some more, or both if they feel really motivated. :)

 

Huzzah!

DSMiles box is now officially sealed.  Shipping label has been printed and I will drop it off at the post office in the morning.

Look out DogBL, the box will be on its way to you soon!

Aww...another box fails its save. The first one almost made it all the way through two rounds.

 

 

Also it seems that the aquatic menagerie I added in Hawaii was the first thing to come back out...

Wow, cool! I'll keep that in mind in the future. :) Unfortunately, since this one is heading across the border to Canada, I want to make sure that I fill everything out that I need to properly, so I won't be able to make use of it this time. :)

 

Huzzah!

If you haven't already, please send your address to the person before you in a PM. This will speed up the process so they don't have to hunt you down.

 

I have sent my info to the person before me on the list. I haven't received the next person's info, but I think it's OneBoot and I know she's been sick and everything. I'm pretty sure I'm last for the DSmiles, so it's not like there's a huge rush on getting it.

      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.
