Some of you may know I have built my own HeroQuest storage box. Up until now I've always just placed all my minis inside the inlay tray. The trouble was that they always moved around when transporting the box. I needed a way to store my minis safely within the box. I had tried using a foam matress filling (I had some grey foam, looked wonderfully similar to battlefoam), but cutting small sqaures into that was a nightmare, and I messed it up. I also have some styrofoam, which is quite hard but much easier to cut, but I decided against that, as plucking out your minis would be nearly impossible.
So I rummaged around a bit at work, and found some leftover foam tape. This stuff is used to close small gaps in construction. There's foam that expands and is compressed on a roll, and foam that is already expanded, but can be pressed in. Both work fine. Then I had some leftover aluminium plating cut to the right size for my box, and started sticking the foam tape onto the plate.
I hope this is useful for those who want to make their own miniature storage box!
