Lots of people looking for stuff. What sorts of things are people hoping to see? 

 

Note: I'm not looking for specific requests (ex. 'purple flock'), just general categories (ex. 'ideas for an interesting scifi base,' or 'things that could be used for south american plants, animals and terrain,' or 'All the shiny things!')

 

I am looking for things that help indicate a specific season (all of them). Things that can help indicate underwater plant and animal life. I have gotten it into my head to try to make a coral reef base.  

 

Also, I need to practice sculpting flower beds for a diorama. Would it be OK to include some sculpted flower bases? Would anyone be interested in things like that? They would not be finished. Might need more sculpting/flock/paint etc before they are done.

I'm mostly looking to get some ideas for bases...I don't have very interesting bases as of now, and I'm just started basing. I'd like some premade bases...and then I might take things that give me ideas... But I mostly want ideas for interesting sci-fi (Starfinder-era) and fantasy (like you might see in Faerun) bases.

Good idea, it can help people decide what to contribute but keep in mind due to having multiple boxes going out we cannot guarantee what will be in the box that somebody ends up receiving. 

 

Sculpted flower bases would be fine.

There might be some premade bases (like those from Secret Weapon) in the boxes but there may not be a lot.

Oh, yeah. I never posted that. Oops ::P:

I grabbed various colors of mirrored glass shards, a piece of copper for keeping a wet pallet funk free, couple of crumbling brick walls, 2 wood spheres, some birch seeds, some small gravel, wood chips, a polystyrene I beam, and a handfull of interesting resin bases.

... and I'm really not sure if the mail delivery person didn't throw it over the fence. The poor box! It is very battered.

Im right after you and I have lots of boxes so I can probably repackage everything so we can make sure the box gets through the full circuit.

Yeah was gonna say really sounds like time to repackage the box. 

Also just mentioning in case anyone's interested, for those who have a Michael's near them, they had some of their tiny dollhouse stuff on clearance (at least mine did). Not all is suitable for basing or even 28mm terrain but it's worth picking over - not even necessarily just for this venture, but in general.
