Hey guys - Quick query.

How do you guys package and seal your armies if you are packing them away for a few years. I packed away my Nid and Eldar armies and I'm looking for a nice way to pack them Securely, Safely so they don't get damaged. They are going in boxes in cupboards.

Store them in plastic bins, or the like, so getting banged around while in storage won't cause any problems.

depends on how much yo want to spend.

i tend to use - Archive boxes you know those hard thick boxes used in offices for storing stuff. i in my poor student days used egg trays . however now i buy the foam insert trays from minatures in comfort,

currently bubble wrap and foam layers, although this isnt long term storage, more becuase im moving house.

if you have spent time and money on your armies, its probably worth spending money on foam trays, the kind you get in your GW ( or alternative ) carry case, although this could be an expensive way, it should at least stop your models being damaged. if your not fussed, then a roll of bubble wrap isnt much and will give them some 'cushoning' (sp) but wont break the bank.

Army Storage cases, get the large ones, they are 50 a pop, but well worth it.

the large cases are nice but there are better value ones out there,

Figures in Comfort made exactly the kinda thing you're looking for, but does anyone know if they are still trading?

I sent them a e-mail enquiry a few weeks back and got no reply, their website is still talking about shows and holidays from earlier this year.

I don't store armies. When I get bored with them I just sell them off. If, a few years later I want to play that particular army again, I build a new one.

Thanx guys - I think I'll go the large tuperware/foam route.

Did you try ringing them? Their number is 01236 431039 (as shown on http://www.ekmpowershop2.com/ekmps/shops/figsincomfort/index.asp)

Their home page mentions a show they were attending three weeks ago, it just might be that they forgot to update it.
