So yeah, I have a match coming up in a local games-workshop and I just remembered that I have about 100 models to move and about 2-3 tanks. I don't want to just shove them in a duffle bag because they deserve much better than that. And so I ask the people of Librarium Online, how do you transport your Imperial Guard?

GW carry case
Doesn't have enough space, I have one, only carries like.....45 models
Guess that means I'll have to buy another one

My friends and I have all done business with this guy: http://www.artsbargains.com/storefro...=15336&c=30053
Some people say its a little pricey, but after purchasing 2, I think its one of the greatest inventions ever. I think I found the "optimal configuration" and I can fit 28 Guardsmen models in every 1 inch thick tray.
You'll need one or more of the deep 4inch trays for your tanks, or carry your tanks in a seperate padded shoebox or something cheaper, since I think they take up too much precious space in the carrying case. OR! Get one of the smaller "Platoon" cases listed on that site for your tanks.
In the regular ($48.75) case, you get 6 x 1inch trays and 2 x 2.5inch trays. This means you can fit WAY MORE than 150 Guardsmen sized models in a much nicer case for less than the GW hardcase will run you.

sabol army transport case?
Tau - Knights of the Frozen Wastes
Necrons - The Phalanx of Gleaming Death
CSM - Iron Warriors

I find that things similar to this:
Work pretty well. The one I have is a little different, but I find that the top section can hold Tanks perfect, and the little trays are great for troops. Since its always upright, nothing gets josselled(sp?) too much, it works very well.

Emperor have mercy on those who stand against me, for I shall not.
I just throw my Guardsmen into one of the Shock Troops retail boxes, my Heavy Weapons into one of the HW Platoon boxes, and my HQ and Elites into a padded Pistol case. As you might be able to tell, I odn't really care too much about the well-being of my grunts.

I buy the double depth pistol cases from Walmart for $10 and then flip the center foam piece over so the flat side is up and cut a series of slits in the foam to tuck the edge of the bases into. I have 115 guardsmen in one case and 6 vehicles in the other (remove the center foam entierly for tanks). All told I have 16 of these cases for all my minis all for about the same price as 3 of the sabol or GW cases.
The Sabol cases are really nice (I have one of the Motor Pool cases) but for the money the pistol cases can't be beat.

i went w/ Intersponge.
you can easily fit 200 guardsmen in this guy, each standing snugly upright in his own little slot.
i personally put my vehicles in their seperate case that's lined w/ padding.
I use a tackle box and place padding in the seperate slide in boxes below the main
compartment. You can carry a good deal of stuff, pretty much your entire army.
My tackle box has a top latch compartment with a hinge, to open up to two
compartments, where I usually carry tanks and what not. The bottom half
is pretty much empty and has shelving where you can take out clear boxes.
Each clear box has the right amount of space to where infantry would fit in
