I will be building 2 custom 12*9*1 foam storage trays for my metal minis, using foam, felt, foamcore. Yesterday I applied felt to the first side of the foamcore base. Today I will apply felt to the other side. This will give a sturdy base and something soft for the minis to rest on. Second side is so that I can layer them and worry less about scratching. Total cost materials glue, 5$ foam, 1$ felt, 1$ foamcore. Bonus, I have trays that will fit in my fancy Muji storage boxes. Photos later.
lexomatic posted a topic in Conversions, Presentation, and TerrainSo I'm thinking of building terrain "fronts" by taking some leftover foamcore, some photos of buildings, and creating some fold-out support ('L-shaped?) so that they will stand up. Has anyone ever tried this? I'm thinking of building fronts because a) more easily stored b) give me lots of flexibility to create mood c) my GNL mats will be used for layouts. d) faster than building full, playable bulidings I'm wondering about sizing. if I do 12 ft per story, that'll fit on an 8x11 paper? I suppose I should compare it to my existing 2 floor MDF stuff, but different eras. I still have no idea yet whether I can find enough photos at sufficient resolution to do this. I took one from google streetview (spoilered), which is also 3 storeys. I suppose I will test something out and report back. In the meantime, please make suggestions, refer to other similar projects/products you're aware of. Thanks.
I decided that I needed a shelf to put minis on so they stop cluttering up my work area. I needed a shelf of shame. I have a ton of foamcore, paper and WorldWorks Games products, so I knew a custom unit could be made. It probably took me 15-20 hours of time to build, but honestly a large portion of that was dealing with printer issues.
