Atom4geVampire's Custom Descent Storage Box (wip)

Recommended Posts

Just recounted the cards. 67 as well.
The image of the act 1 stack shows a height of 36mm. Not sure where you got the 33 mm from :)
As mentioned before, IMO the time how long the cards have been sleeved makes a huge difference how think a stack becomes.

A kickstarter may not be a bad idea.
However what i've heard from other people starting one, you want to be pretty far with what you want to do before you make it public.
And be very sure how much you're going to spend on actually producing the product, otherwise you might end up paying more then what you get.

(That' being said, i certainly would back such a kickstarter :D)

I added a photo of my act 2 monster stack (filename act2_monsters_height.jpg).
Again, slightly squeezed and used to be a lot higher when the sleeves were new.

Yeah, that's the main issue I'm having at the moment. (And why I'm not starting one yet)

I don't really have an idea how much the final product would cost, so I can't really ask for funds then :P
(I have a very rough estimate of the company I was planning to work with, but don't know in how far that's reliable)

Here is a random wip shot from 3ds max :P

I'm adding some improvements to the box as well, based on some grievances I had with my original design.

Maybe I should start a Kickstarter or something

While all of these ideas about a Kickstarter are interesting, I should point out, at least from MY point of view, is that what I am interested in is the solution that Atom created. (See pictures: Atom's Storage Solution).

That is to say, something that is exactly like what his pictures show, which include a high level of quality, a hand made look to them, etc.

If this is what a Kickstarter or farming out would provide, great.  If instead, it would simply be a cheap knockoff, with poor attention to details, etc., I would have no interest.

Atom: Please confirm - if I remember correctly from some post buried in this thread, the one thing that your D2e Box does not store are all of the monster figures ... correct?

Well, @any2cards, I'm sorry if this bursts you bubble, but

But that doesn't stop it from looking good ;) However, it does come with some downsides, one of them that its a bit damage prone.
That was one of the reasons I was looking to have it lasercut out of wood. Also, to get rid of the "hand made look" because I for one am annoyed by imperfections quite easily, and that would hopefully remove most of that :)

So really, if it eases your concerns in any way: What I currently have planned would only lose some of its "hand made look". In all other aspects, it should hopefully improve upon the original product.

  • It'll be made out of wood
  • I'm improving the layout or design some of the compartments, based on my own experiences with the box now (I might even ask for feedback on the board during my design process)
  • The new version will now also fit sleeved cards
  • I have a really cool idea for the outside of the box, which I hope I can realize and which I hope you guys will like
  • ...

The only reason I'd do a kickstarter (or something similar) is because there is a bit of an initial investment to this.

And yes, it's true, the box does not currently store the monster figures, there are just too many of them! (And the different sizes are an issue as well)
However, who knows what the future will bring :) Maybe a separate box? (I still store them in an Citadel Crusade case at the moment)

I must admit that having it made out of wood would be preferable ... I think it would look really sharp, and as you stated, it would be far more likely to be durable (versus foamcore).

I would guess, however, that the all wood solution will be heavier (which is fine by me), but I hope the ultimate solution will be reasonably transferable (i.e. easy to carry it).

I really hope you are serious about pursuing this, as I am very interested in the storage solution. So much so, that if it is necessary, I am willing to help financially if it gets this off of the ground.

Yoo! 

I'm joining in on that Topic!

I'd like to ask how far your progress is by now and if u are still working on it? I'd also like to take one of this juicy storages!

But another question would be about shipping right? But at least Belgium isn't so far from Germany :b
