    Nice modern paint job with the red claws. Magnets all the way, while it's quite an investment on army scale, it's so much better and setting up for a game takes minutes.

    Yeah. Storage, transportation setting up, the ugly trinity.

    With that, I just slide the movement tray in, and everything is stuck, secured in place when I close the box. No hassle, takes 5 seconds to store or put out. Sturdy too.
    Planning to do that for every single unit I have, and monsters, and so on. This is going to be a lot of work, but it's not precision work, it can be done whenever, while talking with my wife, while watching a movie, etc etc. Should be manageable.

    I simply added flat rubber magnets under the movement trays and stick them in boxes or my big transport case which have the metal rubber (no rust issues) to stick them on. I will admit that for some heavy miniatures I would prefer boxes like the one you made. It sure looks interesting and would make a conversation on it's own when unpacking.

    I also have storage at home in mind with that. I can pile them all in a box or a suitcase or whatever and be done with it.

    I use cabinets mostly, but steel office furniture looks very interesting as the painted pile grows. Keeping an eye out for an architect drawer that could work or a tool station with high enough drawers.

    About a year ago, I got that silly idea that I needed all the 8th ed armies. I have not enough cabinets or shelf room anymore (who am I kidding? I don't have enough room in my flat, period. Alos, I believe my wife's patience concerning the slow invasion of all our shelf edges by those metal, plastic and resin soldiers is going to reach its limit soon enough). I need a tight, compact way of storing stuff now, a way that also lets me pull stuff out easily as needed. Nothing easier than picking up a box, I've found. So many accidents while picking up units from the shelves... ANyway, voila, that's my current project: I paint a unit, I finish it, I make a box for it, it goes in storage. Only my favourite centerpieces will remain in the cabinets now.
