Box of Goodwill round 11 picture/chatter thread

I wonder why so many of "Gwyddis, Dwarf Valkyrie" have wound up in various BoGW.  I've seen at least seven in the rounds that made it to me, including four in one box.

 

 

That is odd.  I guess it's just an unloved figure..not really a fighter and not really a cleric.  It's also a very flat and symmetric figure which doesn't really grab people's attention.

    I took it for conversion use.  I got two of the Dwarf King's Crypt Encounter sets in Bones 6, and I wanted to make King and Queen tombs out of the two tombs I have.  This figure seemed ideal to carefully slice the front off of, and use to replace one of the current tomb-top carved male figures.

Another mystery...I went to look for Sir Danel (the mounted figure) in the online store, and can't find him.  Did he never make it into production, or is he just hard to find?

Never made it to production.  His parts were scanned wrong for the Bones mold so he had two left hands.

I should mention some of the Gwyddis were metal and not Bones to make it stranger.  I harvested some backpacks off the Bones ones last round and returned her...I believe her backpack bit was shared with another earlier male Dwarf Cleric from the Warlords line who never made it to Bones.

Isn't Sir Danel the one missing the hand?  Never made it to retail as a result

 

 

 

That must be it.  Upon closer inspection of the figure I see he only has a stump on the arm holding the shield.  No worries, I have a number of old Bones who can happily donate a hand.  Or, since it's behind the shield, a lump of greenstuff would probably suffice as it's not particularly visible.

Strange about Gwyddis - she's a perfectly fine miniature as-is, and the symmetry is nothing that couldn't be easily fixed with a hobby knife and a shield and maybe also a weapon swap from a hard-plastic wargame figure kit.

 

Using her to dress up a queen bas-relief for the crypt is an inspired use - what a great idea!

 

Speaking of the hard-plastic wargame miniatures kits, those are a GREAT source of spare hands and arms to fix that mounted knight with.  I'll definitely want to squeeze a sprue or two of hard-plastic figure parts into the good-will box, along with some loose spare bits.

She was a freebie during the 12 Days promo one year. I know I've got at least 4 of her in my house somewhere. She was in the bag of freebie Bones you got,

This! I have 2 of her and I was wondering where I got her, because I had no memory of buying her... I think it was 2019 but might have been 2018.

He was a factory mistake, so never went into production. He is outright missing his left hand (sort of, keep reading...) as you noticed, and his right hand is actually a left hand.

I've collected a fair number of him and converted them all with various hand/weapon and head swaps.

Yah, I've got quite a bit of one of the Bonesylvania characters (might be the mummy) from these. I know for sure I never bought it cause I've got em all in metal already. :lol:

Ah, I did as well, I assumed the stockings were randomized extras 

I think they were randomized within a certain subset of miniatures. I got at least 3 stockings that year because I was buying up reaper minis for my new campaign, and I got a few repeats. I also have the Bonesylvania fly guy from that stocking, who is cute I guess but I have never needed or used 😅

Ah - the freebies would explain a lot!  Come to think of it, I got about a half-dozen Bones Black orc shamans that way when I bought a bunch of paint a while back!  Gave most away as gifts, but if I had them now, I'd probably be tossing a couple in the Good Will box for others to wonder about :D  "Why does this Yron guy have so many of these shamans????"
