Yes.

 

 You are far too kind. Your selfless act of kindness will stay with me for a very long time.

Guindyloo-Clearman box received.  I don't think I've ever seen a box with this much tape.  It's been through some rough handling.

 

That said, I've got good news and bad news - both because my phone camera no longer functions.  Good news is I get a new phone.  Bad news in no pics.

 

I haven't gone through the entire box yet, but I do know I will be taking:

 

A RCon 2017 Sophie (can never have enough Sophies)

A RCon 2017 Con Crud Zombie

A Bone Eyebeast.

Several of the sanding sticks.

 

Looking forward to going through the Lead and may take some additional items.  Since I'm the end of the circuit, no rush.

 

The box will also received a fresh It-Fits-It-Ships box for the next round.

Here's what I took from the Guindy box at Paizocon.  Thanks to Silverthorne for bringing it.

Bunches of space aliens, a couple random fantasy figures, pugs, and a metal female with a wing-like attachment that I can't identify. 

 

 

Oooh! That wing thing is one of mine!  Hang on ...

@Inarah, that is a Cool Mini Or Not portrait (sculpted by the legendary Tom Meier) of a woman named Marbella from Gen Con Indy.

 

There is a picture of the assembled mini with a Jennifer Haley paintjob on the CMON site.

This is what MrBoot and I looted from the Guindy box! He actually chose more things than I did, since I was looking for unusual figures, whereas he was like "Oh, these would make great bandits, we need more of those!" (our group has been fighting a lot of bandits lol)

He also kept joking so much about the Kaladrax wing being the Hand of Vecna that I ended up snagging it for him. :lol:

Thank you again to Sylverthorne for bringing it to Paizocon! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Nice haul!

 

So how does someone end up with just one Kally wing to put in the box!? :blink:

 

(And, wow, apart from the dragon it does kind of  look like a shriveled skeletal hand!)

@Clearman

You should have seen the box before I stripped off several layers of tape.

I'm happy to see that it reached the end of the circuit and that some of my humble contributions have found new homes /safe haven.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's from when I made the fallen-skeleton version of Kally some years ago, shuffled from box to box.

@Mad Jack---I found that Dae-Shiru arm you need.

 

I'm still in the process of making my selections, so i'll have pictures eventually.

 

@NecroMancer---The GW orcs, the Skorne Cyclops, 1 bag of dice, and the map are all that's left of your contributions.

 I think it might be - I seem to recall having seen a Kally wing in multiple boxes since this thing started.

 Sweet!  Hit me with a PM - I'll be glad to trade you something for it...

Nah, don't worry about it; if I make to paint day I'll bring it with me, if not I'll mail it to you.

Hmmm.  I don't really remember everything I put in there but I think that means people took all of the Wrath of Kings figures and Massive Darkness figures.  I think I put in 2 cyclops so maybe 1 of those was taken.  

 

Oh and the Bones scorpion and bug swarm.

 

So it looks like my stuff went over pretty well!  That makes me happy!!

 

Would still like to see some pictures from @Thes Hunter and @Arc 724 though :poke:

      Welcome to the 9th round of the Box of Goodwill! You may have heard about the fabled 'Box of Goodwill'. Maybe you were involved last time, maybe you're new and would like to see what it's all about.
       
      Well, you're in the right place!! Read on:
       
      This is the official, soon to be patented sign up thread for round 9.
       
      As before, please provide the following info in your replies to this thread:
      Where you live
      If you'd be willing to ship internationally (more expensive)
      If you want to be a box starter (depending on the amount of interest)
       
      There has been a minor rules clarification made. There is also a slight change. Even if you were involved in any of the previous versions, please make sure you read them carefully.
       
      Basically, put some stuff you don't want/will never get to/think other people will find cool into a box and send it to someone else. That recipient will take out whatever interests them, replace a like amount of stuff and ship it to the next person in line. And so on. The last person will send it back to the coordinator ( the person who originally sent out one of the boxes ).

      What's allowed:

      1)ANY miniature

      1a) this means any material, any genre, any manufacturer, any subject matter. If you put lead in, please label it somehow                (separate baggy or whatever)

      2)Anything mini related

      2a) bases, basing material (please package this very securely, and label it), terrain, scenic bits, whatever.

      3) Free stuff--leftover bits, drawings, etc. Please label these items as 'free' or 'giveaway'. If you want some of this stuff, take it, you don't have to match it.
       
      3a)Please limit the amount of non-miniatures related items to whatever will fit into a standard sized Ziploc sandwich bag if it is bulky. Drawings/sketches take up next to no 
           space at all and don't need to be stuffed into said baggy.
          
      3a-1)Use common sense. Also, if you have some hand-crafted, custom-built shark skin and mithril dice bags or whatever that you're certain everyone will love, PM 
               your coordinator and the folks in your circuit and see what everyone thinks of the idea. Majority rules.     
              
       4) Keep it reasonable; try not to put in anything larger than 54mm. That's gonna eat up a lot of space, and create a lot of 'what's it worth' questions.

      What's NOT allowed:

      1)Paint/liquid

      2)Perishable items
       
      3)Exceptionally bulky, non miniature related items. Donate that 7th extra copy of the Player's Handbook to someone that you game with.

      How it works:

      A coordinator will put  together a box of stuff and send it out to 8-10 people in his/her circuit. When you receive the box, take out whatever you like and replace it with a like amount of stuff.The value of what you replace should be equal to or slightly exceed whatever you take. We're gonna use the honor system here, so it's going to be somewhat subjective. Trades should be on a one-for-one basis, unless you're taking something big, in which case it's one-for-two or more.
       For example: If you see 4 orcs that you want, take them and replace them with 4 other roughly man-sized figures. If there's a         
       larger figure (54mm ) that you want, take it, and replace it with either 1 similarly sized figure, or 2-3 man sized figures. Once you're
       finished, pack it up and send it to the next person in line.
       
      Here are some other specifics:
      1)The coordinator will put together a box and start it on it's way. Each coordinator will pm me with the tracking info of the box as it sets out to the first recipient. After this, each recipient will pm the tracking number to their coordinator (the person who started the box) AND the person that they're shipping it to.
       
      2)Participants will publicly announce when they have received the package (pictures would be cool, but aren't mandatory), and again when they send it off to the next person.
      For example: I received the box o' goodwill from Chaoswolf. When ready to ship, 'I'm sending the box to Pingo'.
       
      2a)Participants will also be responsible for contacting the next person and getting their shipping information. The people involved in any given circuit will be public knowledge, so feel free to exchange shipping info how/whenever you wish.
       
      3)Each participant will have 1 week from the arrival of the box to make their swaps and then send the box on to the next person. This is really important, we had several boxes sitting for several weeks or more with no movement in the last go around. If something comes up, please say something. Everyone here is fairly understanding about real life getting in the way.
       
      4) For participants in the USA, shipping will be via flat rate boxes. Tracking and insurance are included in the cost. In the event of loss, the person mailing the box will make the insurance claim and use the proceeds to purchase items to fill and ship a replacement box.
       
      5) I'm anticipating roughly 3-4 months for each box to make a complete circuit (8-10 people x 1week per person + travel time). Once all boxes have completed the circuit (returned to the coordinator), we'll open up a new sign up thread and start the process over again if there's interest. Coordinators will need to pm me so I know that all circuits are complete.
       
      6) This will be open to everyone. We have had several people express willingness to run/participate in a circuit for the newer members; I feel that this somewhat offsets any concerns about anyone's 'reliability'. Perhaps I'm a little naive, but the feeling I'm getting from both public posts and pm's is that everyone really seems to want this to work. Newer members are defined as anyone who hasn't been active on the boards for a year,or without at least one completed exchange.
       
      7) NO double-dipping. If you and your SO both paint minis, please just sign up once for the household.
       
      8) Sign ups will end Midnight May 6th (east coast time). There will be a little wiggle room allowed here to allow for different time zones and whatnot. Once I get up the following morning, it's closed. I'll figure out how many people are involved, how many groups there are, who's going to coordinate and post that information in the first post of the chatter thread.
       
      9) Individual coordinators are able to exercise a bit of leeway within their circuit. They will be setting up the initial package, so they can just stuff a box, or do a quick survey of everyone in their circuit to determine preferences. If they want to suggest everyone slap a color on Sir Forscale (or his designated representative), that's up to them. I'm thinking that the coordinators can run things pretty smoothly. If there's a question or concern, hit them up. Coordinators: if you're not sure how to proceed, hit me up and we'll work it out.
       
      10) if something comes up and you need to drop out for whatever reason (life happens), please contact your coordinator as soon as possible so that he/she can make the necessary adjustments.
       
      11)The group paint figure is not mandatory, just a little something extra for those who are so inclined.
       
      12) Have fun!
       
       
      Ok, I'm pretty sure I've covered everything. If I missed something, or it's unclear, please bring it up in the chatter thread, or PM me.
      Don't add it here.
       
      Suggestions for a different 'group paint' figure and/or title can go in the chatter thread, too.
       
       
      ETA---I don't want to make any assumptions here. Even if you were in the other rounds, please indicate if you'd like to do round 9. Thanks
       
       
      ETA2---With the current world situation (coronavirus) I'm going to be a little more lenient on the 1 week turnaround requirement. If you get the box and want to quarantine it for a few days before opening it, that's fine. Just try and keep it moving as quickly as possible.
       
      I was going to add a whole bunch of safety guidelines and such, but at this point I don't think it's necessary. I'm sure everyone has heard what to do/not do by now. If you think it still warrants discussion, I'll be happy to discuss it in the chatter thread, and edit this post if necessary.

      I got this werewolf from @Lihmeth out of a Box of Goodwill EU round.
      Due to this I made the most of it as I could. Biggest cork base made so far.
       

       



       
       
       



    • By Chaoswolf
      Ok, here are the rules:
      1) Please don't sign up if you were there, or if you had someone get you stuff from the con. This is supposed to be for people who weren't there. No, I'm not going to check, but the gods will know, and they will visit a terrible vengeance upon you.
       
      2) Unlike the regular version of the BoGW that you may be familiar with, you don't need to match anything you take. All of this stuff was donated by people to allow other people to get some cool stuff. So, take whatever you want (but see below).
       
      3) No sharing your picks. If it works out that everyone involved gets to pick 3 figures but you only want 2, you can't pass that extra figure choice down the line to someone else. Everyone gets to have the same amount of stuff, unless someone chooses to take less. If there's stuff left over, send it back to me and it'll get folded into the next regular Box of Goodwill. (Exact number of choices will be based on the amount of people signing up)
       
      Most of the stuff this time around is metal and resin miniatures. There are no Bones (I did receive a few of the monthly Bones giveaway figure, but they're all the same figure, and I was probably only going to throw in a few to round out numbers if it becomes necessary, otherwise, I was going to put them in the regular BoGW). There are a few non-miniature items, such as bags, dice, etc. There are not enough of these items to go around, so if you want a bag, for example, that counts as one of your picks.
       
      Any other questions, please let me know.
