I have a bunch of Grey Knights, Grey Knight Terminators, and Inquisitorial Storm Troopers that I need to effectively and safely transport to my games and back.
The Storm Troopers are one thing, as they're all one piece, and generally a standard size. The Grey Knights, however, are very difficult to transport - the Nemesis Force Weapons tend to stick out, and their poses make them take up a large amount of space. I'm wondering what the safest way to transport these is? I've got some of those Sabol Army Transport trays that you pluck the foam cubes out of, but they don't seem to work all that effectively for the unusual sizes - 5 GK termies, if I were to try and properly fit them - take up a lot of space.
Any ideas? I'm half-tempted to magnetize all their bases and just carry them around on a plate of sheet metal.
I use the Army Transport trays for my SM and WH armies. I have a Techmarine that is, to say the least, very unwieldy to put in ANY Army Transport tray. My solution was to magnetize the servo-harness so that it is removable, and therefore I can get both parts into a 2" tray.
You might want to consider making the NFW arms removable with magnets. I haven't gotten any GK Termies yet though, so I don't know how much of an issue this might be.
The sheet metal would work, though.

If you use the 1 1/2" thick foam Army Transport pieces, you can fit both GKTs and PAGKs in there and not worry too much about the poses and so forth. I've been able to fit all my models in them, lying on their backs, just fine. Each model has their own specific slot I've pulled foam out for. One day, when I'm feeling really anal, I might just number the underside of the model bases so that I can always stick them back in exactly the "right" slot.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

Squize them between that sort of audio insulation foam. The one that looks like an eggcarton. The nobs will prevent them from sliding, and the open structure will allow irregular shapes to fit nonetheless. i don't know where to find it tho, but best guess would be an audiostore or electronics store i think.
Well, I've been using Games Workshop's little army case and had no problems thus far. I carved out enough space on the lower layers for my Dreadnought and Land Raider, and the foam is stretchy enough to accommodate the odd shapes of our illustrious Grey Knights (though the Terminators take up two blocks). I got it as a gift, but it retails for $50 USD. All around it's been a nice rugged case that I can toss in the back of my pickup and not worry about.

I have mad my carring cases out of 3/4" blue foam. All of my guys stand up right and i have had no problem with it. The down side is that all of the cases are about half as tall as I am.
Why use science and education when ignorance and superstition will work just as well.
Put washers in the bases of the models and then go buy a magnet strip (you can find these at craft stores like Micheals) and adhere that to the bottom of a tackle box.
A friend of mine had a similiar problem with his Necrons, especially the Wraiths. He put rare earth magnets on the bottoms and then built a wooden tray and glued steel washers to the tray. Works quite well, he can turn his tray upside down and the models won't follow out (including the monolith). Message me if you want more details.

I keep mine in Egg cartons and it works great. Just get a box large enough to hold the cartons and you have a perfectly sized carrying case. Each dozen egg carton will cary one squad, and terminators will fit if you put them in upside down. Next time you buy eggs give it a try and too will have the cheapest and possibly most effective (not to mention stylish) carrying case around.
