Common Insert Design Goals
For each insert we create, we have a few "common design goals". They are:
- Reduce setup time as much as possible
- Have separate component trays for "setup components" and "gameplay components"
- Allow for vertical box storage without components crushing each other
- Fit sleeved cards
Drakon Insert Details
This game's insert is pretty simple. The best part about this one is the dungeon tile stacks bin. It makes setup much, much swifter. We decided to chop up the original FFG cardboard insert and paste the artowrk to the base of the largest part of the insert. We're quite pleased with the result.
For most of the miniatures that we modify, we like to replace the bases they are shipped on with clear acrylic bases. We've found this to be quite affordable when purchasing from a company called Litko. They make quality replacement bases in many shapes and sizes. We like to replace them because we think it looks better and we like being able to see the game board through the minis' bases. We prefer the round ones, and use various sizes depending on each mini's needs.
Drakon Miniatures Details
For these miniatures we tried to stay in a standardized color scheme across all characters so they would look like a set. We also tried to capture the little details that were included.
