Like many a hobbyist of a certain age, I brought my army cases at least ten years ago. And as my army has grown and evolved, so I have cut and replaced my foam to accommodate it. The result is that the foam inside y cases is now not really fit for purpose. A real miss mash of torn bits of foam that don't really protect my lovingly painted miniatures in the way they once did.
The cases I've got are these bad boys from the days of yore:
They are huge and sturdy and fit loads of miniatures so they were fantastic when I got them. Then I brought more tanks, more Forge World resin, everything got bigger and heavier and I cut the foam to fit. I can't fault these, but my army is bigger now and I want something more bespoke.
I started looking at the new Games Workshop cases:
I remember reading the reviews of these when they first came out and was pretty impressed. They sound really versatile. I must admit, I was tempted.
But then I had a few resin incidents. Where Forge World miniatures have been packed and a sword or axe has been under pressure from the foam, they end up bent. It just happened to my Leman Russ actually. He got a bent sword and I had to get the hairdryer out and bend it back into shape. These cases strike me as having the ability to cause me a lot of trouble in that department.
So then I started looking at KR multicase, I have one of their boxes, just a simple one that holds about 150 marines. Great for a large infantry army.
But they do all sorts of bespoke foam for different things, I'm just a bit concerned about everything being in cardboard cases.
What do you guys think? Any suggestions or recommendations?
