I'll just chip in and say this topic is basically "How do you transport your painted HQ". I think that's entirely in the spirit of Ye Olde Inn.
Slamming a new users topic or telling people to shut up is not.

Play nice! |_P

I'll happily play nice. I do play nice, with this one exception.
Because you're right, slamming a new users topic is NOT in the spirit of the Inn.
However, when certain people do slam new users, they should be called out on it.
And that's exactly what I did.
And regardless of how anyone feels about HOW I went about it, defending new users and addressing negative comments IS playing nice.

That's all I have to say.

I made my own HQ box. It's a bit naff but I think a similar process could be used to make a better one for very little cost.

After raiding this place for tons of new materials I found that I had way too many tiles and quest books to fit in the box I've had since I was 9, which was falling to bits anyway.
Since it was close to Xmas I waiting until the inevitable deluge of left over boxes, and chose one to form the basis of my new hq box. It was a rather massive box left over from a train set my son had for Xmas from his granny. It had one of those flap lids that opens up on the largest side, rather than at the edges, and this suited my purposes.
I whacked a few coats of glossy black paint over the whole thing then glued the salvageable bits from my original hq box to the new box, covering all sides.
It actually looks pretty good. The only thing that stops it from being transported easily is the sheer weight of the stuff inside :o

Pictures or it did not happen.

I like the HeroChest http://forum.yeoldeinn.com/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=2782... but you will need to add foam for rattle free transport.
