PostSubject: Best Way to Transport   Sat Oct 04 2014, 03:42

Hey I'm curious as to the best way to transport my army, currently using a box, but I may have to begin traveling more with college coming up, and the risk of the models breaking while in transit is growing. I've seen battlefoam and am tempted, but before i make an investment in anything I'd like to get some feedback on what other people use.

I purchased some of the 3" deep empty Plano boxes and had some sheet steel cut at work to fit inside of them. I painted the steel and silicone glued the steel to the bottom of the boxes. (Made 10 actually)

Now I just put a 3/16" magnet in the base of all of my models to hold them down. They never move (unless the magnet breaks free) and are easy to count when needed. Seems like a little bit of work but with the right helps it was too easy.

Go Battlefoam. Yes it is expensive but it is well worth the price. I personally use them for my Warmachine army and cannot praise them enough. My bag is one of the Privateer Press bags with a pluck foam load out. It was in the trunk of a car when the car went off the road and rolled with enough force to throw the backseat out of the vehicle. I had a couple of models lose arms at the glue point but no other damage to either the bag or the figures inside. So save up and get one of their bags. I suggest waiting till Black Friday as that is one of the few times a year they have a 20% off sale or if you can get to one be at an event that they have a booth as not only do they have a 20% (and no tax) sales at events but if you purchase there then shipping is also free. Also if you travel a lot they have bags that are specifically designed to fit in the overhead compartments of airplanes as you never have to worry about your models being handled by the luggage guys with checked bags.

This.

If you go battlefoam make sure if you do conversions to get the pluck kind. Because the battlefoam is designed specifically for the model.

Just did a look on the website, to get what I would really need to field the army I like, it'll cost around $200, not to bad, given I could begin building it with my army, than doing a bulk buy.
