Travel Scape

So a few weeks ago I was reading the Events post about The Houston Gathering and I saw pics of my man, not Bill’s man but my man, R˙chean. I drop an IM to him sand say “Dude, did you drive over 200 miles to go play Scape?” and his response was “Dude look who you are talking to.” LMAO! I asked my OCD buddy if he traveled with Scape in hand 24/7, not counting the Reavers he keeps in pockets because he likes they way they make him feel when they run around. “Nope” It got me to thinking. I carry my dice bag with me about 80% of the time. You never know when you might need a d12.

Many years ago I worked for a great a boss, named Frank. One Friday evening we were out on one of our benders. He had offered to buy that night and he was running low on cash. He was going through his wallet searching for one last Jackson to cover the last round when out fell a crisp new $100. I said man we are covered, to which he replied nope we can’t use that, it’s my poker money. WTF? He said you never knew when you might be traveling down the highway and stumble across a game of poker in the back of some road house bar.

It got me to thinking you never know when you might get the call while you are away from home. Say you are at work on the south side of town and Gary calls you to say we got a game set for 6 PM are you in brother? Hell ya except I need to drive 30 miles home to my House get my Scape and then fight rush hour traffic all the way back.

So I give to you…..the Travel Scape Set. Everything you will need, sans terrain, to wage a victorious war of aggression against all who stand in your way.

(Click on pics for a larger version)

This case holds enough figures, except the dragons or Tor, that I can wield about 17 different armies that all have a good shared synergy.

Next to the biggest Heroes the major pain in the ass to storing Scape are the cards. Well thanks to Bryan Jenson’s STELLAR work you can use his custom cards that are slightly smaller than a standard business card. (Link to his latest version at the end of the review.)

The cards all glyphs, both MS and the ones from Wave 1, as well as dice order and would markers all fit in the handle section.

I took the time and money to have these printed at Kinko’s on a heavy card stock. I paid about $7, but I was also using a discount card that I have from work to get a better rate. The pics don’t do the cards justice they are beautiful.

The entire set up cost me around $8. I found the case on clearance at Wally World a few weeks ago for $.99. I am guessing your printing could run up to $15 depending on the quality of paper you choose.

Scape…never leave home without it.

Well I clicked this blog because I wanted to tell you I'm pretty sure "travel scape" is a term I invented, and I'm the #1 travel scaper there could possibly be (even went on that trip to Houston), but, OMG, I was LOL with tears in my eyes that you had that conversation with Ry, then proceeded to blog it and about your travel scape case. GAMER NERD!!!

Hahn, right now you have this post or your blog altogether hidden. Only admins can see it... and maybe people on your buddylist I'm not sure.

I just laughed and laughed at this, because when a nice lady in my church gave me a $20 gift for Easter, I went out and bought a HeroScape traveling box with it. Thanks for the inspiration, Hahn!

Same here. I've been toting my figs, dice, n' cards to tourneys and game days in a black box. I hate digging through the mass of figures trying to find what I need when setting up my army. I need order! Organization! Structure! The chaos in that box is so non-Feng Shui.

nifty case.
however is their not a chance that your figures may get scratched or in some way damged, i m just saying they look tightly packed. Maybe some foam to soften their journey, after all your army deserves 1st class does it not.
