Box of Goodwill, Basing Edition - Sign Up Thread

Recommended Posts

Alright here we go . . .

 

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, if we need a second box

 

What's Going In:

  1. Any structural basing material – cork, plasticard, bark, branches, sand, etc
  2. Any decorative basing material – leaves, flock, static grass, tufts, etc
  3. Bits and Pieces – electronics, gears, beads, stones, etc
  4. Scenic elements
  5. Plinths
  6. Premade and stamped bases, try to not overwhelm the box with these
  7. 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:

  1. I, SGHawkins09, will put together the box and start it on its way. I 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.
  2. Participants will post in the arrival/departure thread when they have received the package and againwhen 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.
  3. 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.
  4. You will have 1 week from time of arrival to take a look and make your choices before sending it on its way.
  5. Shipping will be via a medium flat rate box. Tracking and insurance are included in the cost. In the event of it disappearing off the face of the earth, 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.
  6. Sign ups will end Midnight March 5th (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.
  7. I will aim to get the box sent out to the first person on March 11th.
  8. If something comes up and you need to drop out for whatever reason or you 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.

I can help seed. Would prefer to be midline to help replenish if needed.

 

I can add pretty much anything mentioned above except for stamped bases.

 

I also have some hardboard in need of cutting down (I have a jigsaw) if you want to let me know what sizes to cut down to.

 

I have about 100 or so ProPaint pots I can clean up and donate for use to hold basing material, or I can divvy my seeding amounts up into bite-sized chunks. I also have a box of snack-sized baggies that can be donated.

 

Do we want to include a notebook for people to list what they took/added?

I have premade bases that I cast in resin from my own molds.

 

I guess I can seed a box with a few handfulls, or start a box with a few handfulls? How big is the box supposed to be?

 

 

EDIT: Sorry, found it: Medium flat rate box. Well, if somebody wants to send me the address of a fairly close-by person (I'm in the SF Bay Area), I will start a box and send it off by Monday or Tuesday. I have some resin I need to use up before it ages.

Yep, a medium flat rate box it is. If you want to contribute bases to the box without being in the line up, I can PM you my address and I can add them in at the beginning as I am in Los Angeles. Or if you have think you have enough other basing materials as well to start a second box, we can wait for the sign up period to end to get the routes figured out.

I can send you the bases first. I'm easy.

 

Go ahead and PM me.

Don't quite have enough to start a box.

(Not sure if Dilvish will be getting in on this one officially or not, but we're basically a face-to-face hand-off so there may well be more than one person involved at my stop.)

 

 

 I have a bunch of greenstuff and milliput I need to use up since the next round of the regular BoG won't start for awhile and I plan to pick up new putty soon.

I can bang out simple objects like rocks, snakes, sticks/branches, rotten logs, stumps, etc.(even slightly more complex things like campfires or simple stone altars), pretty quickly.

 

Is there anything particular anybody would like to see in the box? If so, bring it up in the chatter thread and I'll see what I can do.
