I'm just wondering wat everyone here does for transporting/storing their GK/DH models??
I use the black plastic box avaliable from GW, with the red foam inside. However i find that the GK arms cause a problems and the termies are too big (even when i make two slots into one for them)
I was just wondering if anyone had any easy optinos for transporting them as i can keep on doing it this way but if i can find a better way i would prefer it
I pretty much use a large plastic toolbox (those GW boxes are expensive!
It has nice slots for all the spare bits.
Inside I have a few layers of eggbox-shaped sponge for std troops. I've used the sponges from the blister packs to make large standing slots for my terminators.
Not ideal, but the best I could do on a budget.
right now I am using a homemade case. A couple of years ago I found a store that sold they grey foam rubber in 4x8 sheets that were 1.5 inches thick. I cut them down and fit them to an aold nintendo travel case. I am in the market for a new case though and I think I found the answer at Lowe's hadrware store. Its a silver case with perforatted foam inside. The foam can be customizable in size both length/width as well as depth.
Try the army transport case made by sabel. It is a litte on the expensive side but it should work perfectly for grey knights.
I'm in the process of trying the magnetic solution someone on LO suggested (forgot who, sorry!. Glue a small magnet (or use magnetic tape for plastic models) under the base, and either use a metal toolbox, or a regular box with metal trays! Seemed like the best solution for dealing with those damned NFW's. Pus, I don't have to worry about cutting slots and such, so I can put models wherever they fit at the moment.
While this case is for a Tau army (I am in the process of making a GK army, hence why I was cruising here) I fully intend to make a similar case for my eventual GK army.
I kept my Hammerhead boxes and bought foam from a superstore (like three dollars for four slabs). Then I cut them up to fit the boxes, and individually cut out spots for my pieces. Its time-consuming (but since when was this hobby not time-consuming), but it allows you to design a case specifically for your army's individual pieces, and its cheap.
mEGA, my mate has done that (on his own ideas as he isn't on this board). He has glued fridge magnet stuff (bought by the meter) to the bottom of his models (warhammer fantasy so they are all in nice squares <_< ) and then he has glued thin metal 'plates' to a tool box and also to his movement trays (helps alot when u try to put them on a hill )
I just heavily modified a GW foam sheet. It works pretty well.
You know what they say, if you dont like the weather in houston...go back to where you came from
One of my Necron-Playing friends has done the whole magnet-thing, and it works wonders. Extreamly easy to transport.
Problem is, most of the DH models ar metal, and I just can't fit a magnet powerful enough to keep the model in place. Sure, it helps a little, but then you would still be better off with the regular GW box.
Currently, I have all my inquisitor's, retinues and power-armor guys in the GW box. I don.t have any problem squeezing them in without braking their halbereds. Just lay them on their side with the weapon running over 3 holes.
The terminators cause some real trouble, aspecially my bevinged GM... I transport them wrapped in toiletpaper now... not a suitable mean of transport for the holiest of mankinds servitors, but what can one do...

I transport my Nids and Orks in a hand-made case with foam that I also cutted so that they can fit easily...
