as i am building my ig i am finding that there area lot more units than i am use 2 before i go buying my figure cases just a bit of input about how you guys get about with your minis or do you keep the ig for homegames ??
do you have seperate cases for troop and tanks or mixand match like 100o points in one case then have cases for the next 1000
how many and what type of case's would i be looking at in say 2-3000 army
check out battlefoam.com they have more troops per tray, and special trays for tanks and HWs. Or you can have them custom cut your trays for you. they have a bag that can hold 400+ minis and one that can hold 1500+ minis..
May the "Nurgley Goodness" protect you!
they look grate do you use them are theyasgood as they look?
i am uk based so with shipping costs they will cost loads
i have not used them yet but i intend to when i have enough of my army assembled to need custom trays.
May the "Nurgley Goodness" protect you!
I use the german company feldherr figure cases.
the raster foam allows you to tailor the foam to fit your minis.
I will check out the battle foam to see how they compare so thanks for the info.
My guard will take up 1 GW 3 tier figure case and 1 double case i.e. 6 trays. that's around 2000pts but majority is infantry.
Finally getting round to finshing my Tallarn Imperial Guard Army (2K)
Everything else has been sacrificed on the Altar of eBay...
my IG have ended up with:
My main force is one of the huge Cases with 1/2 infantry and 1/2 Tank foam (you know the rip out cubes tank foam)
That's 108 men, and four tanks, two sentinals and a standard in the middle on the other side. (two hellhounds, two sponsoon russes - you just have to plan the tanks carefully, and rip out with care to make them fit.
That's my 1500 point force done nicely, sometimes I'll take a shoebox padded with the ripped out foam and a 3rd russ / rough riders as appropriate (You'll still ned a small shoulder bag for books and dice etc anyway)
Getting well organised and packed helps get games started in time - I used to have them loose in boxes and it would double deployment as i had to unsort everything first. You also immediately notice anything mising.
If you can get hold of the old style tank cases they're good for resin super heavies (and if it's a smaller varient a basalisk fits in too)
Basalisk boxes padded out fit basalisks well too. (and are about the only thing)
How many cases?
2 large ones would do it, but it really depends on the army composition.

I am seriously considering the largest case from battlefoam. I play apoc semi regularly, and with the new codex I will be fielding alot more tanks and or infantry. So the two standard GW cases wont cut it (they do not work well with tanks for me)
Only downside to the battlefoam is the cost is relatively high.
Interesting that this came up as I just heard about Battlefoam on BOLS today. I know they cost more but they are lot more efficient and they also seem to be a lot more durable. I never thought I'd consider spending that kind of cash on a case but the more you think about it the more it makes sense. It's not just a cost issue. It's a utility to cost issue. I think you'll find that you get more from battlefoam. Some of my other cases are just disintigrating. :-(
The site I used for my latest case was Home.
Their aluminium cases are VERY good, and allow you to pick which foam trays you want. A double case costs £60, but carriers a fair amount of models. For example, it can fit 8 of the 36 infantry foams, or 6 of those and 1 of the tank foams, etc. They also have a list telling you roughly what fits in each size of foam.
