 I have stuff that was cast from recycled musket balls...  ::P:

 

(I dug up some Asgard and Archive stuff out of the depths of the Citadel for this round.)

 

 

I'll have a fair pile of ancient lead in my box, too, balanced with Bones and some newer Kickstarters that don't seem likely to be painted. :huh:

What's the general opinion on non-complete (like the afore-mentioned handless wonder) or conversion parts in the box?

 

I have no problem with there being a small percentage of "conversion fodder" or bitz.  But I'd hope no one thought it was a good idea to take out a bunch of perfectly good figures and dump in a pile of nothing but broken stuff.

Maybe if the "conversion bits" were in a separate labeled baggie, and the box limited to whatever can fit in that, the way some other things are limited.

 

(I should have been clear about my handless mini earlier.  I have her hand; it's just going to be a pain to pin and glue.)

Another one of your off-handed remarks, I see.  ::D::B):

 

On a serious note, I think your baggie idea is a good one. (And preferably no bigger than a sandwich bag.)

Also, are we doing group paints this time?

I had thought I might poll my group once they're assigned to see if they wanted to do an optional one, but one must keep in mind this part of the rules:

 

Each participant will have 1 week from the arrival of the

box to make their swaps and then send the box on to the next person.

 

A week is plenty of time to go through the box, make selections, select items to put back in and send the box on its way, but may be too pressured of a time line if you add painting into it and we don't want to delay the boxes needlessly.

If it's just a few figures, and they're complete (all parts are present) that's fine. Otherwise, they should be considered 'bits'

That's up to each individual box starter; I plan on PM'ing everyone in my circuit to see if they want to do one or not.

Nobody needs to feel pressured to paint the group figure if they don't want to or feel they won't have time.  Besides, you don't need to spend more than a few minutes on it, paint a belt pouch, or the sword, or glue rocks onto the base. You're not responsible for the whole figure.

Quite the opposite, in fact. Save some fun for the rest of us! :B):

      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.
