Ooh, informed delivery says I have a priority mail box on it's way from Michigan arriving on Monday, hmm I wonder what that might be::P:

That should be it, I mailed it out yesterday.

The box got here like 7:20AM ::o: So I was able to give it a good look after the kids went to school:rolleyes: I have made my selections and will be sending the box out tomorrow. Considering the USPS stellar performance of our boxes so far and with winter and the rainy season upon us, I bagged up and ziploc'd everything left:) Mini's are in one bag, the scenery already was, the assorted Reapercon loot in a shopping bag:) And it's in a new box AGAIN:( Geez USPS:( Also, there is a bag marked for @Chaoswolf for the next regular BoGW as I will not be in the next round. Hopefully when it goes out in the regular BoGW people will find them useful:)

And now what you have all been waiting for...PICTURES!

I tried to get a group shot and then individuals, but the tombstone did not photo well:(

The box has arrived in not-currently-sunny Pittsburgh! I've already made some selections, and I will either send the box along tomorrow or Monday.

 

My selections:

I was very glad a blood wolves iconic was available! The maggotcrown dude is also pretty great, he's got a nice backpack for that classic adventurer flair. And Anthanelle is always welcome. Yay!

Box is still in great condition! The tape on top of the box needs to be replaced, but I think that's normal since I opened it. Otherwise no issues.

@Sanael has it been sent yet? I could use a bit of cheering up atm.

I'm sorry you need better cheer, but I'm glad to say the box is on its way. I was delayed yesterday, but I left it in the hands of the USPS about four hours ago. Should arrive on Thursday.

 

Also, the box is now light enough that wrapping it in brown paper and sending it like a normal package is about half the cost of sending it as a flat rate "if it fits it ships" package. So that's good to know for everyone left on the list.

You'd be surprised what I can fit into a "if it fits it ships" package::o: I am sure the post office gets ticked at the amount they lose off me::P:

Well, yes. And I'm sure this is never an issue with regular BoGW, what with people refilling it as they take things. But this box is still too full for a smaller flat rate box, so... Cheaper to wrap it in brown paper!

Had to take the jade green. agonized over the 2nd paint though. didn't want to take another of the few bright colors but nearly every other color was a match with another. Also, miniature variety is starting to get less varied.

Yeah. Monday I pick up new dentures and have a meetup with my F2F D&D group. Tuesday I'm going over to my parent's place. Wednesday lunch at a family friend's place. Also, I thought it might be a bad idea to send it out due to other people's holiday travel plans.

Does the post office take a tremendously long time where you are?  For me, I walk in, use the kiosk, and am done in about 2 minutes.  

 

I'm not in this exchange, but I'd be pretty annoyed if I was and you were holding up the line.  Especially when one of the 'rules' is to not keep the box.
