Hey all,

As the subject suggests I'm looking into getting some battle-foam for my descent minis, the are unpainted. The main reason being I would like to just have a nice way to organize and carry my minis.

As I have pretty much everything so far, all the minis from the first edition and everything in second edition except for a few lieutenants.

Was wondering if someone could give a list of the size of the minis from small to large cause I don't know what the difference between the battlefoam grids are.

Also anyone know a good website in the uk?

Worse comes to worse would just by the block of foam and pull out and make the sizes I need for the big models

Thank again!!

I too was considering this, but decided to opt for Pluck Foam instead, for the following reasons:

+Can more easily adapt to the relentless pace of FFG's expansion releases.
+Avoids the risk of the digital measurement being incorrect.
+Avoids the time spent digitally designing the foam sheets.
+Costs less



It might also be worth contacting Battlefoam to see if they'd be willing to assist in the design of the foam. They have [or at least had] a foam set designed to fit all of the 1st edition monsters, so there's roughly half the measurement work done if you could get the info from them [they'd have to pull it from their old files].

What depth of pluck foam did you use? How much did it take to accommodate what set? I've been considering this option, but haven't figured out exactly what to order.

I've not fully implemented it yet, just verified that the normal pluck foam trays from Sabol Army Transport fit into a nicely sized box I've found. I'll be posting the entire [expandable] storage solution when I get around to finishing it.

I didn't mean custom cut foam for the figures, I ment already spaced foam like the generic ones they use for warhammer figures.

I was looking to pick up something like this [url]http://giftsforgeeks.org.uk/shop/figure-cases-foam%7Cfigure-... [/url]

or

I think you are right and getting a block of foam and just making the size yourself. Will me much cheaper! http://giftsforgeeks.org.uk/shop/figure-cases-foam%7Cfigure-...

Would everything have to be laying on its side or for space sake could some of the minis be standing up? Need to figure out the dimensions. Why didn't I pay more attention in maths!
