Hmm... @pcktlnt , is there a group paint in our box? 

 

Also @Chaoswolf thanks for putting me at the end of the circuit!

 

I really appreciate it. ::D:

Why yes. I put in a mule or donkey in the box. Simple mini for those that have the time to add colors. ^.^

I feel funny putting paint on someone else’s work. I do so much with layers and washes and thin adjustments of color it would probably annoy anyone else working on the figure.

I picked through the Marvin/Inarah box and I have pictures! That box is really full to bursting!

 

Spoiler

Bones selections

Basing stuff (including turf I was about to buy for my Secret Sophie project)

A pretty reaper lady I haven't IDed yet:

Another unidentified metal lady. I was hemming and hawing on this one because I don't want to paint her, but she has a ton of character. I decided that I like her so much as she is that I'm just going to put her on my desk

This was my first ever Box of Goodwill, and it was very fun digging through everything for buried treasure, so to speak, so thank you so much to everyone who's contributed so far :) Having this arrive definitely brightened up a less than nice week. I've got the box packed up again with my contributions, and I'll have it moving again as soon as I can get it to the post office!

Do you folks want to do a group paint figure?

 

I don't mind.  Not sure I have ever done it in the past and even if I don't get a chance this time I can always let the little one add some color to it.  She would probably get a kick out of that now that she does more painting than I do. :)

I got so much on my painting plate right now so I would pass on the group paint.  Sorry

I think I would pass on a group paint, this being my first BoGW


Not much needed for the group paints though.  Just grab it and find a spot to add a little color then pass it on.

I'm not sure I've ever seen an expensive taklon brush. Kolinsky sables, now.. those will put you back a chunk.

 

I am, however, now somewhat reluctant to look these magical files up; not sure I want to know. ^^;

Brain is thinking Kolinsky Sable but then instructing fingers to type taklon.:down:

Life can be "interesting" when you have a brain that doesn't always function according to the design specifications.:wacko:

I can put paint on whatever is presented.

No warranties or representations as to how well my painting skills measure up.

Since I'm downstream from you I would value being able to study your technique "up close and personal".

Oh, you have one of those too? Mine's verbal. :/

 

The notion of a thing that is to be painted is fun, kind of; might be fun to see what everyone else did by the time it gets down to me. ^^;

  That's Grenadier - the Action Art 8001 Explorers box set "torchbearer"... 

She's an old-school lead figure .

 

G-albs-8001d.jpg

 

 

 

And she's missing her torch....

 

 

Which, interestingly, seems to have found it's way into the Guindyloo box somehow... lol

 

If you'd like her torch and have the ability to pin it back on, just shoot me a PM with your address and I'll mail it to you.

Thank you! I was wondering what she was holding. My best guess was a cup ::D: I'll send you a PM

I thought it was a cup too, like one of those cattle-horn things.

 (Okay, how the hell do I do the mention things so the names come up red?)

Anyway...

 

 Okay folks in the Guindyloo box...

 

 I've decided to toss a group paint figure in the box... It's the Bones 01005: Undead Outlaw.  It's got enough sections on it for each of us to jump in and do something, yet simple enough that if nobody chooses to jump in on it it won't take much for someone to finish.

Pingo, you're going to be the first one in line to put paint on it if you want.

 

 

On a pair of different matters...

 

It appears that we've lost the journal that was previously with the box, so Guindy has started a new one. Since none of the stuff in the box is currently identified, rather than writing in what I took and what I put in, I'll just make a list of the contents current to when I sent it out...

 

 

Also, RE: the "preponderance of lead" in the box...

 

There are around 40 lead figures in the box, plus about half of a dragon. It was all packed very loosely in plastic clamshell blisters, and two of the blisters didn't contain any lead figures at all (one is full of metal and plastic bits), so it looked like there was more of it than there was.

I removed a couple of figures that were simply mashed beyond all recognition or hope of repair.

 

 I'm looking to have the box out by Friday.

      Ok, I've got the box organized and packed; hopefully I can make to the post office Monday to start it on it's way.
       
      Here's the list:
       
      Ratmaster 2000--arrived 10/31, sent 11/1
      SGhawkins 09--arrived11/2, sent 11/10
      ShadowPhase--arrived 11/13, sent 11/16
      Strawhat--arrived 11/19, sent 12/1
      GlitterWolf--arrived 12/10
      RobinH--arrived 1/8, sent 1/9
      Necromancer---arrived 1/14, sent 1/16
      Generic Fighter--arrived 1/18, sent 1/22
      Disserma--arrived 1/24, sent 2/6
      RedAmbrosia--arrived 2/8, sent 2/26
      Ttuckerman--arrived 2/28, sent 3/1
      Fire Eyes--arrived 3/4, sent 3/15
      Chris Palmer--arrived 3/18, sent 3/20
      Sanael
       
      If there's anything left, send it back to me, and it'll get put into the next (regular version) BoGW that happens.
       
      There are enough items included for everyone to make four (4) picks. After you've grabbed some stuff, seal it back up and send it the next person. This is all based on the generosity of people at Reapercon, so there's no need to put anything back in; this is a straight up gift.
      There are 2 pairs of sunglasses in there; they don't have anything to do with Reaper/Reapercon other than that they were in the swag bag, and (I'm guessing) donated by the city of Denton. If you want a pair take 'em, they don't have to count as one of your 4 items, unless your conscience dictates otherwise.
      If you want to help out with international shipping fees (and no one is under any obligation to do so) contact Strawhat, GlitterWolf, or RobinH to work something out.
       
      A big THANK YOU!! to everyone who donated stuff for this to happen.
