I have not heard back from Aryanun but I do know she is going through some stuff. I will be getting a replacement box out sometime this week, most likely Friday. 

 

If you want help filling it, let me know!

Thanks for the offer but it is packed and will be sent off today. I had actually been doing some organizing of my basing stuff and had a bunch stuff that I don't need/want anymore so it is pretty full.

Speaking of boxes, what's the status of the Dilvish box?  Got some travelling to do at the end of the month and beginning of July and I don't want it to just sit for a week waiting for me to return.

I finally got a chance to rummage through the box today.  It's crammed full of interesting stuff.  Got a couple things picked out to add to it.  Just got to figure out how to stuff it back in the box.  I'll post a pic of my selections tonight or tomorrow when I get some space cleared.  Should be shipping out to @Clearman tomorrow or Friday.

I worry the same. Near constant travel second half of July and August.

Here's what I picked out:

Grabbed a couple of bases, a block of wood, a bag of little rocks, and a flower looking thing.

 

I think I'm going to put an IMEF soldier on that alien looking base.

Sorry again! Mr. Mouse is sending it out for me in the next couple of days (Probably Sat.).

Did the box ship? Nothing has arrived here.

Sorry everyone. Having trouble shipping. I'm not going to participate in the future due to this. I'm going to send it as soon as I figure out how to ship without going to the post office.

 

...I apologize again. Been dealing with a move plus continuous brain weasels...I am starting to believe I shouldn't have signed up in the first place.

USPS click-n-ship, followed up by requesting a pickup that can be scheduled is probably your best bet if you’re struggling to make it to the PO. Abother option might be a local grocery store or Ace Hardware. Several around here offer USPS services at the customer service desk. 

ETA: Abother? Another. But... kind of amusing.

Do you know if you can use click-n-ship in an apartment?

      Started painting during the pandemic but was really intimidated by basing. Finally picked up some supplies and based my first couple models. Really improved the overall quality and aesthetic.

      Not super sure where to post this but this made the most sense to me. I found some fantastic miniature pumpkins at my local Joann Fabrics.
       

       
      Hopefully you can find them elsewhere if you don't have a Joann's.
      They come in $10 bags that are pretty big. I don't see myself ever needing to buy more. 
       

       
      They say "fall drieds" which makes me think they're some kind of organic. But they have the consistency of some kind of acorn or pinecone. So pretty solid. I don't think they'd deteriorate but if you're worried I'm sure a sealant of some kind would do the trick. 
       

       
      They come in a mix of sizes but they all look pretty good at 28mm scale. The cutting mat has half-inch squares.
      Most of the pumpkins are of the artistically exaggerated size compared to a mini, and the smaller ones tend to be darker and a bit more mishapen. The coloration in them is pretty decent. I think they could use a layer of highlights but if you're in a hurry or making a huge pumpkin patch, then they look just fine. 
       
      Anyways, I hope this is useful for someone!

      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.

      I've gotten to the basing point for Ma'al. I decided I wanted to put ivy vines around the base. While I just did the vines out of green stuff I'm not sure what to do about the leaves. I have a GSW leaf punch that I want to use but I'm not sure how to prep the leaves so nothing weird comes in with them. It's been suggested to me to use the oven but was given no further details.  I have other ideas if I can't get the leaves to work but I'd really like to use them since I went through the trouble of getting the punch specifically for this. 
       
      So what would you do to real leaves to make them work for basing?

      We all keep knick knacks and trinkets to make things from in the future.  Whether it's some small bit, like dragon pendant I got from Salvation Army for 50 cents or some cardboard forms that hold tech devices in place that look like good buildings for Battletech.
       
      I wrote about Bottlecaps as bases a while ago.
       
      Recently, I found the plastic mounting bracket that's been floating around my bench and figured out what I wanted to start making.  I usually draw out what I intend to do, but the shape of the bracket defined its purpose.
       
      This compilation uses a bunch of various finds.  So towards that end, I am going to have a little contest.  
       
      Guess all of the items which I used in here and you will get a random Bones mini.  I will provide a numbered list and one clue because one SET is fairly hard to figure out.
       
      1. ______
      2. ______
      3. ______
      4. ______
      5. ______ Bracket
       
      Clue:  These odd pieces were disassembled from a triangular cap.
       

       
      The bricks are actual brick I bought off of Wish.  I got the standard bricks plus the square in gray and brick red.  I also have small triangles in brick red.
       
      The stone was split length wise so it was nice and flat. The terrain is a custom grind of bark, black walnut bark, dark cork and and coarse normal cork.
       
      The gears are from Michael's jewelry and findings section.  Some of the white on the terrain is baking soda mixed with super glue.
       
      Here's the piece primed...
       

       
      Stay tuned and enjoy.
