I've searched, but i couldnt find a thread about this, so i thought i'd make one ^^
what do you use to haul your army around? i use those army cases of gw, but so far, in my local store, i havent seen many of those.
which i understand, they are hellish to put an orcs and goblins army in (all dem pointy bits) or anything bigger then a foot soldier.
does anyone else have this problem? or is it just me
and how do you haul your army around?
MEAT IS MURDER, And murder tastes pretty good! :D
same, Sabol Army Transport. i use the 13" depth original one but i've been wanting the small 8" one as it's just big enough to store my 1500 point friendly all-infantry guard list (been out of stock forever, supposed to be restocked in december).
anyways, the customizable foam trays that you can get in different depths (so you can always have just to right amount you need for your models), helps me transport 190 guardsmen, 4 sentinels, and 3 tanks while still having half a 2.5" tray to neatly store my dice/templates/tokens (6 1" trays and 2 2.5" trays) in a case either equivalent or smaller in size than a normal gw case. where as to store the same amount i'd need probably 3 of the gw cases.
I use an old old GW carry case and a newer GW army carry case (the big ones) and that holds nearly all my nids - though when the winged tyrant finally gets made and my gaunts get a boost in numbers I will need a new case.
Some people use fishing tackle bags with foam inserts to hold armies and in the USA some people use gun cases --

A rigid plastic shell with foam inserts. For instance, in Detroit we often see items like ...
Cabela's -- Plano Protector Double Gun Case
... that offer direct compettition to GW's US$95 equivalent.
Even if you don't live in the US, 66% off is an obvious bargain.
Mechanically, the "egg-crate sandwich" is superior to the "foam booth" case due to variety -
No matter the size, shape or pose of the Infantry models, they all fit snugly - no rattling around.
Alternately, you could pay +65 bucks for the privilege of advertising for GW when you use their case.
For non-Infantry models, I recycle the cardboard boxes used to ship computer upgrade parts.
They use the same "latching foam sandwich" principle as rifle cases with a further advantage -
They're free for the asking at most local computer stores.
At one box per Unit, I can just stick them in a backpack for transport.
For really big games, I use a cheap duffel or carry-on bag to shlep the boxes.
Coincidentally, these are nearly identical to the bags GW now sells at 3x the price.
Again, with the disadvantage that I miss out on all those advertising opportunities . . .
I use a cookie tin and small soldiers lunch box packed to the brim with bubblewrap.
Has yet to fail me these past five years.
i have found two ideas
for 40k put magnets on the bottom of your figures and a cookiesheet inside a plastic tote
for fantasy i have haven't any thing expcept a beercase tray
For my wood elves, I have one of the smaller gw army cases that hold the elves. Then I have a fishing tackle box, that has 3 slide in trays and an deep top section. I put my dryads, treekin and horses in the trays, and the flying stuff and treemen in the large top section and fill it with shipping peanuts to keep it from moving around.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
I just use the GW carry case and a box for things like a greater demon or tanks.
Here's what I use: Link (My Carrying Case)
Basically, magnets on the bottoms of the bases and washers glued in a box.
