Hi Guys,

So I wanted to know how you guys transport your vehicles. I'm considering getting the new medium gw case for infantry, but I dont want to attempt putting my spiky vehicles in their. Any ideas on what I can do? Thanks

I use ikea storage boxes, and magnetise the sails off the raider so they don't stick up. Take off the sail, lie the raider on its side, you can easily get three in a typical sized box.

If you put sales, chain snares, and trophy poles on any of your vehicles, battle foam is about the only option that I've found to be decent. Sadly a couple of their foam still require you to remove the sales and such since they are about an inch too short.

Really, I got magnets in fix positions on any transport to easily put on snares or trophies. Also sails and guns are magnetised and to some degree the rudders, too. Even decorations, stolen form other 40k kits. Well, maybe I got carried away, I even magnetized the base of my flyer .... but good for transportation!

I have my stuff at a friends, but I will take some pictures this sunday. I put that in my phone so I don't forget it .)
For the flyer, I basically drilled and glued three magnets into the transparent plastic. I used 1mm and 3mm magnets (the big one in the cross section) and supported it with two pins. And then I glued a stone on the base for at least some decoration. Still works Smile

For the rest of my vehicles I used the same kind of magnets. You want to have bigger ones for the sail and the base and 1mm for all that little stuff like sponsons and trophies.

I only have a magnet on the sails and didn't add trophies at all. I don't like them. Keep it pure and simple. But I use the skeleton heads of the heavy dark elf infantry for my true born. But that's another topic.
