Welcome to the BoGW chatter thread for round 5!

 

The arrival/departure thread is here:

I will keep that thread updated as people post in it.

Some of you may notice that I will be ending up with 2 boxes at the completion of this round; here's why:

Froggy wants to transition from box starter to participant, so he is sending out the box he currently has and has been worked into a group so he can play along too. I will end up with the box that he is starting out. I may try to bring it along to Reapercon with me (if I have by then) or I may Froggcidentally combine his box with my box for the next go-round.

Glad to see it back.  I have accumulated a small box of redundant goodies since last time.  I hope people can make use of them.

 

(Is it okay to include someone whose hand has fallen off?)

 

(Also, the first two rounds I put in way more than I took out.  The second two rounds the boxes came packed to the gills and I took out somewhat more than I put in.  In all cases I've tried to send on plenty of goodies to the next person.

 

In that light, how strict is the one-for-one swap rule?)

Do you have the hand? Either way, that's perfectly fine.

 

As for the 1-for-1 rule: it's more of a guideline.

In your particular case, I would say that all of your activity has certainly balanced out.

Woohoo!  

I have my selection of Bones 3 discards ready. :) (Plus other goodies!)

 

I think a figure without a hand is fine, it can be used for other part donations, like it's head; or used as a basis to do some hand transplant work.

 

Running over to the sign-up sheet now!

How big a box are we actually talking?  USPS Large Flat rate?  Medium?

 

Just curious on the volume of stuff that would be in circulation.

 

 You'd be amazed at how much stuff will actually fit in one of those medium boxes when packed carefully... ::D:

Particularly if the figures have been de-blistered and are in little baggies.

 I fully expect one of us to get a notice from the USPS one day informing us that one of the boxes was lost due to reaching critical mass and taking out half of downtown Cleveland...

 

 

I was about to make a smart-elf comment but then realized that I don't know enough about Cleveland to insult it.

If parts are missing please label it. It's not always obvious when looking at a figure for the first time, or if it comes unassembled.

      You'll take my life, but I'll take yours too
      You'll fire your musket, but I'll run you through
      So when you're waiting for the next attack
      You'd better stand, there's no turning back
       

       
      I'm going to be building/converting/sculpting my own copy of Eddie from this artwork. I'm just going to do the central figure, not the battlefield around him.
       
      For those who don't know, the song 'The Trooper' is based on the Charge of the Light Brigade, an action during the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War.
       
      So, before I get started, a question:
       
      The artist who did this piece (Derek Riggs) applied a little creative license to the flag that Eddie is carrying. It is not historically accurate to the best of my knowledge and research. If you know differently, please enlighten me.
       
      When I get to that point, do I try to recreate the flag as seen in the artwork, or go with something a little more accurate? Or is that a detail that most people will not notice?

      Here's 2 beetle swarms that I knocked out pretty quick this weekend. 
       
      One basic brown, and the other with a more metallic look to them.
       
      Let me know what you think.

      I finished Mason Thornwarden a little earlier today. He's painted up to a (hopefully) decent tabletop standard. I've been reading a lot about Rangers of Shadowdeep on various blogs all over the internet; I can neither confirm nor deny that is what may have led to his selection for the paintbrush.
       
      Let me know what you think of him, please.

      I just finished painting this figure yesterday. It's from the old Grenadier boxed set 'Fighting Men' #2005. Not really a whole lot to say about him, I spent about 3 hours painting him to a good tabletop level. I got a little burned out on painting for a while, feeling like I had to paint everything to a competition level. Well, sometimes it's just fun to slap some paint on a figure in a few hours just to take your mind off of other things. I had just forgotten that somewhere along the way.
       
      Anyhow, here he is, let me know what you think.

      I finally managed to climb back on the painting horse. I painted this vampire to my usual tabletop standard. He'll be the leader for a Mordheim/Frostgrave/random skirmish game warband.
