If you can’t afford the swank Wrymwood Hero Vault then here’s a great little hack for safely transporting or storing your miniatures. Most every gamer has a few dice cases lying around from prior dice-set purchases. With all of my dice ending up in a Crown Royal bag, these dice cases are left unused. The cases are often the perfect size for the storage and display of many 28mm or similar-sized miniatures so I use them to safely transport my character’s miniature to conventions, and have used them as a gift case when I painted some miniatures for family members.
It’s an easy little hack. Starting with a dice case left over from a Chessex dice-set purchase, I stuck a 4×1 square Lego piece (because it was handy) with some tacky putty to the bottom of the case. I then added some tacky putty to the top of the Lego block to hold (and easily release) the miniature. Last, using some tissue left over from some other wrapping job or gift, I prettied up the bottom of the case.
Voila! A perfect little case to store, transport, or display your miniature, and perfect for gift-giving. Since you probably already had the empty dice case, this likely costs you next to nothing to do, and you can feel good about being green: recycling old materials and all. On the other hand, if you’re willing to spend a little, the Wrymwood Hero Vault is pretty chic. With just a few days left on their Kickstarter, it’s worth checking out.
