Extra Bits

Post  Kal on Thu Apr 06, 2017 12:48 pm

I think i enjoy having a semi captive audience .

Anyways what do you guys do with all your extra bits from your kits?

Leave them on the Spruce and collect piles of spruce

Cut them off the Spruce and throw them into a giant bits bin

Sort the bits by individual armies?

Sort the bits by what they are, weapons, shields, heads etc.

combination of any and all of those?

I couldnt sleep last night so i was up until like 2 am cutting all the bits off my ogre spruce and putting them into a box together... and now this morning i semi regret it as i KNOW i should have this one bit but cant find it in the multitude of bits in the box...

1. I wouldn't call us semi, I would simply call us "captive".

2. Sprues. I have told you a million times. Sprues.

3. I've had so many bits over the years, I have literally poured (literally poured) boxes full into the garbage. Now, I get to buy those same bits for $10 USD, plus shipping from ebay. I cut them from their SPRUES and put them into old GW containers, sorted by type. Arms, heads, weapons, etc..

Keep everything. I used to use bolt/nut/screw cases with a see through top. Then I also had a few old clear tackle boxes. Every item was separated by type so in Left arms- you could find an orc arm, dwarf arm human arm, etc.

After I while you can make awesome extras, scenic bases, mutated things, and interesting dioramas.
