Greetings and welcome to the Generic Fighter Box! First, I request that those in my box send a Private Message of some sort including your Address to the person that is before you in the box's journey a soon as you can. So that the box can travel fairly fast even if communication is difficult later on. This is a thing that has happened before and I would like to minimize it if we can :) Next on the agenda, What are your thoughts about a "Group Paint Mini"? Do you want on in the box? Any Ideas for which mini to use? Any other thoughts on the subject? Current Plan is to mail this box out the Week of the 11th of March. I have Real Life things that make it hard to send before then which means we have time to decide the Group Paint Mini status. I'll look through my stuff and see if their are any that stand out to me.

 

In other news, Thanks Ioun the new Forums have an Auto save feature! nearly lost my post because the idiots that designed my laptop put a stupid sensor node in the middle of the keyboard that changes pages and cannot be turned off!!!! BLEEPING DELL!

Alrighty, here are the Short listed Contenders for the Group Paint Mini!

#1: 03821: Half Orc Merchant(Bones)
#2: ???? Female Paladin?(Bones)
#3: 02783: Xiao Liu, Female Monk(Bones)
#4: Dragonborn Fighter Female B(Wizkids)

 

So, please let me know what your choice is. I'll primer and prepare the chosen mini and get the box ready in the next week or so. Plan is to send it on the 16th or 17th at the latest.

 (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.

 

 

 

 

1. In Safari you start with an “at” sign and start typing the member’s username. As you type you are offered a drop-down menu of usernames that start with that letter. When the proper username pops up, click on it.

 

Like so, @Mad Jack

 

2.Sounds like a plan. Does anyone mind if I give the whole figure a wash of Brown or Grey Liner before I paint something on it?

 

3. Thanks to all the generous upstream donors even if we no longer know exactly who donated what.

 

4. Ah, okay. I’m sure it will be fine.

 

”about half a dragon” sounds vaguely ominous.

The last box circuit there were some jumbled figures in my box. As I recall I rebagged some of them in tiny craft ziplock baggies for ease of organization downstream.

Thanks, Jack!

 

Sorry, again, about the journal disappearing. You would think that I would’ve found it under the couch where my little wildling kitten keeps her hoard of bottle caps, pens, jingle balls and felt mice, but it wasn’t there. 

 

And thank you for going through all of the lead. I knew that not all of the blisters had it in them, but while I avoid touching the lead figures, I’m certain that the amount that was in there doubled last round. For all I know, the stuff is breeding in there. The mashed up bits might’ve been their babies that hadn’t fully formed yet. I hope you were respectful when you removed them so there won’t be any retribution. ::P: Hopefully those of you who don’t have an irrational fear of personally contracting lead rot will find something in there that you like! And also hopefully Jack doesn’t get eaten by a giant lead monster.

So the votes so far are...

#1: 1 Vote

#2: 1 Vote

#3: 1 vote

#4: 3 Votes

 

So,  unless anyone says otherwise, Number 4 seems the clear winner at the moment. I'll set it up with a bit of a wash soon, then.

1.  @Pingo

 Why does that only rarely work for me? Technology sucks, lol.

2. By all means - I would have been doing the same thing if I'd had any time to throw paint at it.

3.  <cue thematically-appropriate music>

 Um, Guindy... You need to be made of lead in order to get lead rot, dear.

After having worked with minis for three-quarters of my life, and thus probably having accidentally ingested a few of them in my sleep, I may be susceptible to lead rot... But not you... ::D:

 

A giant lead monster tried to eat me once... Once. After three days of horrible agony and screaming... it died from Mad Jack Disease.

Well my species is biomechanical, you know....and our origin movies have been really crap, so I don’t know if I can trust that there isn’t any lead anywhere in me.

You would think that someone with acid for blood & saliva wouldn't worry much about lead. :devil:

 Well, there ya go - lead and acid... All we need to do to see if she has lead in her is dunk her in water and ask her to hold a light bulb.

If we've turned her into a living battery, clearly she has lead in her...  ::D:

I don’t think this is a very good plan. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t look good bald.

For those in the Rob Dean circuit, there’s a group paint giant still in progress...

 

I should have it on its way by Saturday. It’s getting a little full; I think it might be safe to take a little more than you put in, especially if you’re new. Or I’ll have to break the rules and use a large box. 

:rolleyes:

 

@Rob Dean

 

Er...  I'm guessing life got in the way?  No hurry, but please keep us informed.

      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.
