As I said in my last post, I was working on a small project which was just completed a few minutes ago. You see, I display my painted mini's in shadowboxes hung in various locations throughout our house. Some are purpose made while others are re-used letter trays from the days of the printing press. I was bothered that I couldn't display the 'Tomb of Spells' box that my wife bought for me but it was just too large. Staring at one of the trays I suddenly had an idea: display my figures with a miniature box!

Still have a few to paint.

The process is simple, just photo the box, cut it up in your favorite image editor and re-assemble! Here's a look at the micro box up against his big brother.

The outer boxes.

The open boxes, including insert! ( I yellowed it to make it look old)

All together it was a pretty fun little project. I was going to go ahead and post the layouts for download but to be honest, I worry a bit about the legality of distributing something like that.

  1. You know, stupidly, when I saw the title I actually thought it was going to be about some rpg about pugilism - doh!

    Silly me, eh?

    Very satisfying when something comes together so well. Nice work, Matt :)
