Transporting Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 figures can be a daunting task considering how fragile your carefully crafted models are. The carrying cases sold by Games Workshop work great but can be quite expensive. The key to a successful carrying case lies in the foam used within the case and how the figures fit into it. Cost effective and highly efficient carrying cases can be made on the cheap with a moderate amount of effort and good amount of foam.

  1. 1

    Measure the storage container you intend to use for the carrying case, and cut the foam sheets so they fit snugly into the container.

  2. 2

    Lay one of the foam sheets on the bottom of the container, this will be used as the base.

  3. 3

    Measure the height and width of miniatures you intend to store and transport in the case and cut corresponding rectangular holes into the remaining sheet of foam with the utility knife.

  4. 4

    Place the cut sheet of foam on top of the base inside on the container and place the miniatures into the holes.

Tips and warnings

  • Make sure the models fit snugly into the hole you cut for them. Less movement means less chance of getting damaged during transit.
  • You can repeat this process and stack multiple foam sheets to make several layers.
