I pit stuff in the box.  You all will jist have to wait and see what I did.  Lets just say I tried to build my karmic balance to ensure an uneventful trip home.

 

 

Thank you on behalf of all us unfortunates who can't make it!  

 

 

So is @Chaoswolf home yet?  Are we starting yet?  :lol:

 

 

In seriousness though, Chaoswolf, do you think you will be launching the ReaperCon or general purpose BOGW first?

Can someone explain how this works?

 

I'm familiar with the regular Box of Goodwill - what is the difference between that and ReaperCon Box of Goodwill? Is this only for folks how made it to ReaperCon?

 

Thanks !!

The prior rounds of the reapercon bogw were open to everyone, with limited slots based on donations from reapercon attendees.  Then based on the number of donations and the number of participants everyone was allowed to take x number of items without replacement and any items remaining at the end @Chaoswolf folded into the normal bogw.  Of course this is all subject to changes and tweaks.

It’s mainly intended for folks who weren’t able to go to Reapercon, so they can have a small taste of the excitement of the convention.

No idea.

Give me a few days to recover, and then I'll start thinking about it.

Exactly this.

Ok, so I've got everything mostly worked out, and I'll start a sign up thread in another day or 3.

First I've got a question:

There is enough 'stuff' for 14 people. Sort of. There is also a paint kit with 28 paints in it.

Do I go with 14 and everyone gets some minis and 2 paints, or up it to 15 people where 1 person gets the paint and the others get the minis and stuff?

 

Reason for asking:

The paint set and the other stuff isn't going to fit in a medium box; it's going to have to be a large one. More expensive for everyone.

2 Boxes (one for the paint to go to its new home, and one for everything else) is more expensive for me.

Also, if the box goes international, I have no idea if shipping liquids is prohibited, even more expensive or what.

 

Thoughts?

International is brutally expensive. I did it last time and the large box was over $70 to send. This  needs to be stressed so that someone isn't caught unprepared. I would definitely love to be in this BOGW as I couldn't make Reapercon.  I think you should stick to one large box unless someone is just absolutely dying for the paints and at which point they should just pay for shipping themselves.

1. I assume this:

Is based on removing the paints from the pistol case? Meaning you would keep the case for your own nefarious purposes.

 

2. I personally don't need more paint, I'm just chuffed that someone was kind enough to donate a full set! So I think 14 people each getting paint is great, or 15 people with one getting paint is great. Maybe run it as a survey on the sign up thread when it starts? See if there's someone who really needs a jumpstart on their paint collection?

 

(2A. I don't need more paint, but if two bottles happened to find their way here I would give them a good home::D:)

 

3. If there's someone clamoring for the full paint set, I think it would be entirely kosher to ask them to pay shipping for the full set from @Chaoswolf to their porch. Everyone in the loop (except possibly the last person) is going to have to pay shipping, so a theoretical person getting just the paint set wouldn't be burdened any more than anyone else in this case.

 

4. International shipping costs might be mitigated by the person about to send overseas sending a list of items left in the box directly to the overseas recipients, then shipping only the stuff the individual wants. I haven't run the math, but is it possible that sending even multiple padded envelopes might be cheaper than one large box?

 

5. I know sign ups aren't open yet, but:

5A. I would love to be involved again, and:

5B. This would be my third year in a row on the RCBoGW, so if there's a big influx of new folks I'd be happy to drop to the end of the list or off the list altogether.

No. It did not occur to me to try test fitting just the paints and keeping the pistol case. That might be a viable option.

Personally, I would love the opportunity to get a paint bottle or two just to try out the new paint.

 

I agree that shipping the paints out of the pistol case might be the best answer for making everything fit.   In a ziplock bag or  two to prevent leakage.

 

A chance for everyone to get a couple minis, a mini and a paint, or two paints, seems like the best of all worlds to me.

 

And, yes, like the others,  I would like to take part no matter how the paint is decided on.

For what it’s worth, I have my Bones 4 minis but I still haven’t had a chance to get any paint yet. I understand sign ups have not started and all, but I would ABSOLUTELY pay the full shipping for the paint set if that’s an option (and I don’t need the pistol case, if that matters)

 

No matter how the paint things works out, I’d love to take part :)

I have been in this a few times and loved it, but this time I will pass.

 

Just so you know, I have ordered paints from all over the world and there is no problem, the amount of liquids won't exceed any limits.

Make sure they're packed well if you sent them abroad though, air travel means low temperatures and this could affect the paint if they aren't packed properly.

Also don't send them abroad if Winter kicks in on either side of the pond, they will freeze.

I have had some  Reaper Holiday Paints getting elfed up because of that.

It seems to me if you split the paints up, and everyone got to take 2 or 3 “items” from the box, you’d be able to accommodate a lot more people in the circuit this time. So you could start the sign-up list, and then decide on the paint based on how many people want to partake this circuit.

      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.

      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

      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

      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.
