PostSubject: what to transport your dark eldar in?   Fri Aug 16 2013, 08:51

So i am having a hard time finding a case i like and is practicle when transporting my dark eldar (i am sure we all have had this), it is due to the large amount of vehicles i have and will be getting shortly.

I currently am using a small GW case and a large tool box and alot of bubblewrap lol

I wanted the apocolypse case from GW just because of the amount you can fit in it but couldnt get the funds in time due to getting married. I have looked at the battlefoam bags and the KR cases but i keep getting told the BAG quality of the battlefoam bags is rubbish and breaks and then the KR cases FOAM is spongy and crap. Before you say 'why not mix KR bag with battlefoam' i resite my previous comment "JUST GOT MARRIED" i aint got much cash left to my name now.

So really i am asking my fellow kin what other companies there are that make decent cases for a FAIR price

Small plastic containers that I think were finecast boxes for my troopers and cigar boxes. I carry around the whole set in a cardboard strawberry carrier. Works pretty well, just don't drop anything.

Also, the search function may be useful.

I use an army transport bag with trays for troops and other things.
On top i keep my vehicles with a thinner type of foam in between.
Works pretty well.

I have 5 1/2 cardboard KR cases now, some 5 years old; the foam is still excellent. All my foam is half-box width, so I can re-sort easily into the half-sized box if necessary.
I don't use their bags, I have assorted rucsacs than fit 1, 1.5 or 2 boxes, and bulky shoulder bags are awkward when riding my bike!

I just use the double case, one side for troops, the other with loads of chopped up foam for vehicles.

I use 2 plastic storage totes, put a sheet of metal on the bottom of them and then picked up a couple packs of magnet backed printer paper and put it on all my bases. Keeps everything from rattling around and getting tangled up for the most part.
One tote for Ravagers, raiders, and venoms. The second for Reavers and infantry, may have to get a third just for infantry and make one reavers and beastmasters/beasts

Some battlefoam would be nice. They already have pre made foam for any race and some army warfare bags would suit you better.
Mine lasts still lolz after a couple of beatings in the car. Or an alternative would be pluck out foam those are pretty good.
