Use the lid. It adds that little extra.Also, props for some great objectives. I've just been using some colored glass beads with various 40K icons on them... and I only have those because I won them in a tournament. You've got me thinking that it's past time I stepped up and got some decent objectives.
I was on the fence about the lid, was feeling kinda lazy about it... but I went with your suggestion & it did add that little bit "extra".I personally don't have the room to store terrain, so I get my terrain fix through these objective markers, I guess. They've been alot of fun to put together :)
That VHS cover has freaked me out for decades.So, I think it works!
