That woulds be the regular flavor of the Box of Goodwill. Our current round is almost finished up, so we should be starting another one soonish. I'll be  making an announcement when it's time.

 

Oh! OK, got it!

Awesome - I'd love to get in on it then! :)

Will the basing box be coming to Reapercon?  Need to size my luggage accordingly.  @Dragoneye of you're going to be there I can take it from you and save you the shipping.  If your not or it won't fit, no worry.

nice haul @Dragoneye  I like the crystals.  I am assuming its a normal medium shipping box?  I will be able to fit those dimensions in my stuff.  I am bringing spare suitcases and there are 4 of us going so weight will not really matter either.

 

Thanks for asking though.  Looking forward to seeing you next week!

I somehow keep missing the signup for the basing box, but I can't resist checking out the thread anyway. Maybe I won't miss the sign up next time.

Box is home safe.  Thanks everyone at reapercon for cross pollination and taking enough stuff that everything now fits in the box!

 

Hope to have out late this week

I mostly took little samplings of a bunch of colors of flock and rocks. I'm really looking forward to playing with it all, and I even was able to add in some goodies I found in my family's craft hoard :)

Great haul!  Glad to see some of my stuff going to a new home!

 

 

And sorry, I thought I had posted this but apparently it slipped my mind.

The cork was more because it wouldn't fit back in the box with other things.  The two medicine bottles contain some of the small and large birch seeds (leaf litter)

 

Finally the warhammer scenery kit found immediate use in my kill team bases.

 

Thanks everyone!  Lots of Good things to enjoy!

      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.
