I think the title nails it really, how do you get your model's from A to B.

at the moment i'm using the large game's workshop case and a load of tupper ware box's in a back pack

the GW case's are ok,
but by the time i've put in my 4 trucks and the boyz i have no room for the battlewagon, looted wagon, bikers, killa kans, dreds, koptas and what the hell is the stompa supposed to go in,

so i end up with a large carry case, a back pack and a box or carry bag for the stompa,
all this on the train:headbutt::crazy:

anyway how do you get your's around,
as there must be a better why and i'm out of ideas.

regards
jim

I bought a Hiper power supply, and it comes with a most awesome carrying case. I'm using that, it's good for about thirty models of infantry and two vehicles can fit inside, double or triple that if I even fashion some floors out of polystyrene packaging I find lying around.

I use the cases and foam trays from this site http://www.krmulticase.co.uk/
You can order specially made foam trays which are an exact fit for vehicles and the pick & pluck range is great for transporting monsters and larger models which don't have a more specific tray available.

This works the best for me.






I've tried toolboxes and plastic/foam carrying cases. This carrying case offers the capacity, protection, and convenience I wanted but didn't get in other cases.

Like Stone220 I am a fan of the KR Multicase system.I have Kaiser 2 but now I'm playing Mech Orks I will stump up the cash for Kaiser 4.
I also have the smaller Aluminum Case whish is used for travelling with WIP painting.

I don't see the point of paying extra for plastic cases when they just are sitting on shelves.
So the card cases are great at the price for shelf sitting and I just grab them and pop them in the carry bag for games.

I scored a pelican 1640 for nothing.(Very lucky) and it holds 200 marines, 24 terminators 2 dreads, 2 dp's, 320 ig troopers, 8 hw teams, 2 baneblades, 4 leman russ, macharius,2 chimeras and 2 sentinels. It is outstanding but heavy and huge.
I have a 3 silver plastic cases i filled with the pluck foam to carry my other stuff.

i have it hard as i'm on a moped so getting it all on my bike is a struggle. What i do if put all my tanks and armour in a a shoe box and put that in my top box on the back. I then fassan my small GW travell case to the back of my top box with a cargo net and then put my rule books, paper, pens, glue and LOTR sometimes as well in my rucksack.

Me neither what why pay over £30 for a plastic case when all it's going to do is sit around on a shelf, the card cases are around the £20 mark, it's just a matter of finding the one/s you want and sticking them in the Kaiser and away you go. Using the Aluminium Case for WIP painting is a great idea Vash I might start doing that myself if you don't mind :p

Ouch! That must be fun, I have the car so it's just a case of sit on the back seat and strap them in :laugh:, the major problem for me is parking as my FLGS is right slap in the center of town. :(

parking is real easy for me as there is a bike park just outside the shop as my local is almost right next to the train station. (poole)

So many times i have wanted to bea able to drive even if i take my mums Smart car as that can carry all that plus someone else. I bearly can fit my self on my own bike with that stuff on. Yet i do it ever week (2-3 time in the holidays) to go to my local.

It frustrates me how my suitcase for going abroad is cheaper than a KR multicase.
They are a bit on the expensive side but are well worth the investment and much cheaper in the long run than it would be to use standard GW cases.

Armor in one shoebox, infintry in another, stuff em both in a duffel bag along with anything else I might need. Bring plenty of superglue to repair whatever got destroyed along the way.
