This list present my own creation : foamcore inserts and miniatures painting.
I started building my own inserts for Imperial Assault (too much extensions and I would like to preserve the painted miniatures ...). And now I spend a lot of time cutting, gluing and painting.



Foamcore inserts :
For inspiration, I usually browse the list of Foam core insert modifications or somewhere else (see credits on each). Sometime, I made my own when I cant find the insert I need (without SketchUp, but maybe one day, I find the time to learn how using it !).

For each foamcore insert, I make a plan on paper.
Then I listed all piece of foamcore with the right measurements.
After I use a software like the freeware MaxCut to have a cutting diagrams and optimize foamcore.
And finally, I cut and stick all pieces.

My tool box :
- cutter, pencils
- rulers (1 of 60 cm and 3 of different sizes)
- glue (Tacky Glue) and pins
- black 5 mm and 3 mm foamcore
- grey 2 mm cardboard : Carton gris - 60 x 80cm - 2mm - 1260g/m²
- paper to sketch


List of my future inserts (update nov'18) :
- Legends of Andor
- Small World Underground and differents expansions
- Pandemic (1st edition, with expansions)
- Duplik


----------------

Miniatures painting :
I find inspiration on web :
- boardgamegeek (of course)
- Pinterest
- youtube, like Sorastro's Painting for SW:IA



My tool box :
- Citadel paint
- Differents kind of brushes
- corks
- wet pallet

List of my future painting (update mar'19) :
- Mice and Mystics expansion
- Continue StarWars Imperial Assault(actually on Hoth expansion ...)
- Continue Gloomhaven (with spoilers !)
- Start GhostStories
- Finish Zombicide : Prison Outbreak


----------------

Feel free to write a comment or send me a message, for any questions or remarks .
Sorry for typing errors and/or wrong grammer, english is not my native language blush.

I started painting with this game.
There are a lot of zombies, so it takes a lot of time for me!

I made a first wave of zombies (the normal walkers and fattys). The berserkers will be painted in a second time.

My first foamcore insert is for Imperial Assault based on Vindanger's storage insert.

Actually, I can store (no sleeves) in two box : The Core Game, The Return to Hoth, The Bespin Gambit, The Twin Shadows and different extra miniatures (Obiwan, Leïa, Han Solo, Bobba Fet, Chewie, ...).

Insert:


For the painting, I just want to make a cool boardgame, not a realistic painting.

Imperial figures:


Heroes:



Allies & Villains:

Foamcore insert to keep ships of the fleet on their support.
I keep the "window" of the core box to see the beautiful ships !

Personal creation, especially for our fleet, mainly rebel one.

The different waves came in separate box, not very easy to use it. So I took one empty expansion box from Arkham Horror and one from Sentinels of the Multiverse to store every ships.

Foamcore inserts :

Great game but I spent to much time to install the game before start playing ...
So I use Gloomhaven Foamcore Insert by rlphay and made some few adaptations to keep miniatures in the box.
I also add laminated paper cards dividers to finish the box.



Materials :
I recently added new printed materials for monsters (you can find the model here) :

(color : POSCA pencils - grey and yellow)

Decided to make a foamcore insert for one of my favorite game. I created a model because I could not find a pattern on internet.

Inside of the box, you find all expansions box and promos.

A friend asked me some help to make a surprise to her brother, in creating a foamcore for his 7 Wonders box. The aim is to store all expansions in the core box.

Because I also have 7 Wonders in my cupboard, I think it's time to pimp that game ...

Double box. I feel like doing work at the chain! Amazing day.

We use Colin's solution and I also add laminated paper cards dividers to finish the box.

The aim is to save space ... So I tried to have core box and all expansions in only 3 big box !

Work is completed! I do some mistakes in the plan but nothing that I can change during construction.

I have made "card shoe" for all of cards.
The monsters have a storage space in the box, but are in a cotton bag when we play.



During the design:

I owned the core box and few expansions (Shadows of Mirkwood cycle + the hobbit + Khazad-dûm).
This insert put together all cards and makes much easier take them.

EDIT: I used GeckoTH's excellent dividers to finish the box! (laminated paper)

I have 6 boxes of "timeline" game! The original boxes are really beautiful but I can't put all the cards together


So I decided to create a special box for that. I used the "7 Wonders Duel" expansion box because it has the right size to hold all my cards.



Next step : I printed and glued the pictures I made to change the outside of the box.

A long time ago, I made a paper separator to put all munchkin cards I have:
- Munchkin + 3 first expansions : Unnatural Axe, Clerical Errors, The Need for Steed
- Munchkin Bites! + 1 expansion : Pants Macabre.

Yesterday, I decided to make a real foamcore insert to keep the cards in place.
Here is the result!

I have 3 Time's up (yellow, purple and Academy -black version-), and they are in a Carcassonne expansion box, because the original boxes are not really durable and the bags are damaging the cards.

So I created a foamcore in the expansion box. I changed the outside of the box to more easily identify the game inside. I also added tags inside to identify the edition.

I have the French version (first or second edition, I do not know how to tell the difference) of the game.
I also have the first expansion "The Beagle's Journey".

I created my own foamcore, to put the basic game and the extension inside. I was inspired by the realization of mholzma and I reused my idea of ​​the "card shoe" realized for Arkham Horror.

I printed some aids for the game I plasticized.

A new creation, which took me a lot of time, because there are two big boxes for which I had to create completely the plan.
Moreover in June, I had many things to do with my children, far from my cutter and my glue :-)

So, we are talking about Mansions of Madness!
Here is the list of my box and expansions (I don't have all), it give you an idea of ​​the content:
- Mansions of Madness: Second Edition
- Mansions of Madness: Second Edition – Beyond the Threshold: Expansion
- Mansions of Madness: First Edition (used with First Edition Conversion Kit)
- Mansions of Madness: The Silver Tablet

As always, I first create a plan for the 2 boxes. After measuring all the material, testing, scribbling, retesting, erasing, drawing, etc, I finally start cutting the model that I designed...
My box contains a "card shoe" for small cards. I like to create them and I improve my style more and more :-)
Very happy with the final version! I still have space for future small expansions (when they come out in French).
Large expansions do not interest me: too expensive for only 3 scenarios.

Here the result:

Hello,
Winter is coming, new inserts too!

This time I worked on Space Alert and Space Alert: The New Frontier.
I found this model: Paquisto's plan on BBG. And I really liked how the number's tokens are stored in the box. I spend most of my time in play, being in charge of communication, so it speaks to me!

Unfortunately, the plan was not as practical as I thought (and I do not speak Spanish: another difficulty of this plan!).

Finally, I finished the job today with some adaptations.
It took a lot of time. But I love the final rendering. And you?

A small insert, made quickly for Codenames and codenames Duo.
I was inspired by this realization.
In the end, the insert is very simple and allows to have the 2 games in one box.

I used this insert, where I made some few modifications, because my cards don't have sleeves.

In my insert, I can put the game and all expansions.

We bought this game for playing with our children.
I decided to paint the miniatures to allow the kids to enjoy the game even more.
And finally, my daughter started painting with me. I left her the cockroaches, she loves painting. She will finish them for the next vacation!

Here we have : mice and rats.




Now I have to create an insert!
Update : I did it during last holidays, but dont take time to make photos. I do it during a painting session.

A new game that requires an insert!
I use this template, because it was a good starting point, and I made some adaptations (basically because I use 3 mm cardboard).
Very simple box to achieve, result is great, waiting for expansions!



Next step: i need to find cards dividers that I like.
