I currently use standard GW and Intersponge cased for my 28mm minis, so is there any foam inserts or cases designed to transport 6mm models safely?

Although not specifically designed for minis, Plano boxes are pretty good for transporting Epic.

I use Army Transport. You can fit 2 to 3 armies within it :D.

I do the same as Hena and when we are talking armies I mean things like regiments worth of troops.

A standard figure case will happily hold an Epic army or two.

I stick magnetic strip to the base, then keep them in a biscuit tin. I can get about 5000pts of orks or imp guard in each tin. Very handy don't take up much space and they stack.

I manage to fit my Siegemasters into a small cardboard box with layers of bubble-wrap between each layer of troops.

Seems to work ok.

It's good.

That looks like a good case bombot, what foam do you use for your case?

Looking on the site there is basic GW style foam, pluck foam, custom foam and a set of trays designed for 6mm models.

Tackle boxes. Plano's 3700 series is inexpensive. It comes with separate boxes with adjustable sized compartments. Plus, Plano is the big dog in the market so everyone else makes their boxes compatable. Pick whichever manufacturer you like best. They have hard plastic and nylon bag carriers. You just pick the boxes you want and load them up. A normal 3700-series box will hold most of an army.

I use a nylong case with lots of pockets for dice, blast markers, measuring tape, etc.. It's big enough that I can usually carry 2 armies (including titans and stuff), rulebooks, and sundries.

As far as the boxes, the plastic minis are so light you can basically just pile them in without any worries about breaking or chipping. For heavier minis, I either put a thin layer of foam in between them, e.g. a row of 3 Skorchas, thin layer of foam, 3 more skorchas. For big stuff I use a thicker foam and individual compartments. For really big stuff like titans, they have extra-deep boxes. Just get a piece of foam rubber from a craft store and cut out whatever shapes you need for gargants, titans, etc.

Also, an innovation I'm particularly proud of, for aircraft I use lengths of pipe insulation. It's readily available at a DIY store. Just cut it to length and slide it over your aircraft like a sleeve. It allows you to glue the models to the flying stands and still protect them. Just stack them into a box, no more protection needed.

I got mine before they split up the trays into 28mm, 6mm etc. I think I go with a couple of Tray 4 and a Tray 15 (for titans and warmachines). That's for my Marines anyway.

The Kaiser Rushforth cases are also highly thought of and very reasonable...

spirit games has some. and I do ship direct to the UK. I'll even discount teh price as much as I can to keep the cost to you down.

BTW some peopel are aware of my standard 20% discount to forum members. But you have to ask for it. :)

I use a Ferro Rocher chocolate treat candy container for my small BFG fleet, with some simple foam padding (GW blister foam?) it should work just fine for the IG army I want to pick up ASAP.

-peace out

Not that I can see. No carry case category, nothing comes up with the search.

I'm interested. Are the figurine clamp trays tight enough to stop Epic vehicles moving slightly? (In my old Skirmishpack of clamp trays, even 40k infantry can move.) What would be the cost of a Battlepack Deluxe B with shipping to the UK?

ballpark $75-85 CAD for shipping, whihc is why I reduce the case price. Fig clamp shoudl work but for large figs, gargants and such you might want to look at either our cavalry trays (16 big slots) or vehicle clamp trays with deeper teeth to hold the figs tightly.

So what is the discounted price? I asked for the price of the Battlepack Deluxe B with shipping to the UK, not for the price of shipping to the UK.

opps. sorry it took so long to notice this reply. I've been neglecting warseer, day job and all that. :(

battlepack B to the UK I can do @ regular = 115 + 85 = 195 CAD

say discounted price down to 160 CAD, shipping included.

How's that sound?

I use some little multi-compartment boxes from a $2 shop with a few tissues on top of each cell. They can transport my entire army and the box is really small so I can shove it in the bottom of my bag when travelling for work so I can organize games at night.

we're using those to fill in the delux skirmishpack MAX, you can eirth have your rulebooks fit in sideways and securely or use the $2 counter bitz trays we provide for just that purpose. (or get them seperately).

Same thing except with metal tool boxes. Doesn't stack as well but looks manly...
