An 8 year old did that? Excellent work!

He did! Didn't even make that much of a mess on my desk. To be fair, that AP Speed Paint does quite a bit of the heavy lifting, but he's going to be out-painting me in no time.

Picks from the @Rat13 round:

A very varied grab: board game minis, some Bones for conversions, a handful of various metals, and Countess Sansuri for "Storm King's Thunder".

 

The box has been resorted for space and I bulked it back up.

 

It should be on its way to @themudhead in the morning.

It looks like about a quarter of your smaller picks came from me. I see a couple Kaosball players, some bloated zombies, and another one of those skeletons. 

 

I'm starting to think I'm never going to figure out these boxes. Everything I actually think people will be interested in doesn't seem to move but everything I'm on the fence about including (and almost don't put in) gets picked immediately. It's the tiny robots all over again.

I'm curious to see what moves from what I put in.  I'm always surprised as well.

I really tried to re-seed the box, I did combine a bunch of bags into similar stuff like all Bones together, all metal Reaper together, etc (including fixing the "Lead" bag a bit) and for space I did unblister some guys whose blisters were already falling apart.

That's the real reason I became a box starter. I love going through the log and seeing everything that got put in, got pulled, and by who. It's so cool to come across something interesting or unique in the log only to find out it got pulled immediately so you need to check the pictures to actually see what it was.

 

I know exactly what you mean about the blisters. If they're vintage or somehow a limited figure I make an attempt to keep them in their blisters but after just a couple trips they're usually destroyed. It's just one of those things, blisters just don't survive.

Apologies to my group, I've been crazy busy but I WILL be dropping off the box at the post office tomorrow, I just paid for and printed the label to pack it up tonight so I can finally get it moving. Thank you for your patience, I appreciate y'all. 🖤

Inarah box arrived today and WOOHOO, sci-fi goodies! It even had a Star of Battletech Clan Elementals! Sorry for the blurry pic, and I will try to get to the PO tomorrow, if not, Monday for sure.

Like the old saying goes, "one person's junk is another person's treasure".

Sansuri was from my roommate and the Cthulhu Wars Yothan was from me last round. Being at the end of the list is a lesson in delayed gratification twice over. 😂

 

I have a whole set of extra very unique and fun sculpts (definitely a Kaosball situation) that I'm excited to add to the box this time around. But I probably won't see them grabbed for a while (unless Chaoswolf takes a shine to them).
