Spider Box Posse (aka New Tourney Box) 4/20 PICS!!!

So during a break today at the Battle of the Border my boys and I went to eat at the McDonalds across the street. After we ate we went to a closeout store next door and found this beauty for $15 (Eckels and RobertDD went back and grabbed one each after the tourney)

The box..


..another angle...


The top compartment...


...and with the lid open...


...the main compartment showing the 4 individual boxes.


...the inside of one of the boxes without any of the additional dividers


..and filled...




You think I will be ok for GenCon?

Which, I think I've proven, is all you really need in most cases!

That box is a sweet find. Something like that is probably next on my 'Heroscape Accessories to Buy' list.

EDIT: Pun intended!

I would like to see pictures of what the actual product looks like that you have. From the pictures the little compartments look a bit cramped and narrow. However, since you purchased it and believe that it can be put to good use, I'm sure it will have some valuable use for holding Heroscape goods.

I still use my Master Set and Large Expansion Set boxes to hold all of my pieces. I probably need to upgrade soon.

I packed up very loosely the 3 armies my boys and I brought in 3 of the inner boxes but I could easily fit double in each.

Spider Box Posse All the way, yeah, bro!



(did I sound posse enough?)

Seriously, the place we found them was Ocean State Job Lots, so that's the place you want to scoop out for these. They are really incredibly well suited, size wise, for heroscape. It fits the cards and at least two big figs (including Mimring with wings on). Note: I have tried and rejected (brought back to the store) the Plano boxes at Wal-Mart and the Stanley at Home Depot.

Wow that's a cool portable storage device. You can fit doubles easily or the dragons, you say? Awesome product.

Haha. I was laughing at this too when I noticed it. Who needs to buy extra terrain sets when you can create your own heroscape map in your living room? Also, who needs to use figures, when you have objects and/or people around the house?

Onacara's cat:
Move: 8
Range: 1
Attack: 5
Defense: 5
Life: 9 (pun)

Special ability: Cat Nap - After revealing an order marker on Onacara's Cat, you may choose to not move or attack, and instead take a nap. Remove 2 wound markers from Onacara's Cat.

... do you have a cat?

Anyway, back to the point. Now that I have seen actual pictures of this, it looks much more useful than it did in those example pictures. You would definitely be able to store multiple armies, dice, order markers, etc. This would make a perfect carrying unit for GenCon IMO.

Also, is it lightweight considering it's size? You never want to carry around something that would be uncomfortable or heavy. If you feel like it would wouldn't bother you to carry it around from place to place, then go for it.

Nice find!

It can easily hold 10-12 tournament armies.



And No I do not own a cat.....and never will again.
