I too was interested in the Cthulhu Wars item, but after shipping it's still quite costly.

Additionally, it looks like it'll only hold the core game AND the box lid is way high.

Yep, everything is on sale.

It was pretty funny mid-week seeing them mention the sale on Facebook and people posting questions, asking "Are Krossmaster inserts on sale?" or "Are Zombicide inserts on sale?" and them repeatedly responding "Everything is on sale."

I really wanted to jump in this sale and get some BattleFoam stuff, at least a pack and a couple X-Wing inserts. I've been studying what they have so much though and can't figure out what pack or foam I need. I want something that can pretty much hold all that I have. I can't see what the custom foam is like since it needs Flash and I only have iDevices.

I had purchased one of their X-wing packs 2 years ago during their 4th of July sale. I mostly bought it to protect the Epic ships that had come out.

I would recommend doing the custom inserts if at all possible. I have a lot of extra space in mine I don't use, like for extra Defenders and Interceptors. Some of the inserts have space for 2 of the bigger ships, which I don't have.

Now, every year or so when I have enough new stuff I make a new custom tray and purchase it. That way my stuff is protected, and I get exactly the set up that I want. I wish I would have started out this way, but what can you do?

Thanks for the advice. I actually don't only have iDevices; I do have a laptop. That display matrix went bad years ago so it is had to view anything, it is bogged down with all kinds of adware and stuff (probably some stuff worse than adware too) from my wife downloading toolbars and clicking random things, and is running XP Service Pack 2. It is currently hooked up but I just don't ever boot up it and use it unless I absolutely have to. I guess I'll give it a shot though and check out the custom foam.
I could get, say, the Wave 1-4 bundle and then get a couple newer trays, but like you said, there will be a lot of empty space. I'm not going to buy 3+ Firesprays or more than three Defenders (and I would only get a third one of those if I get a second Imperial Vets for the cards).

I just really want one of those Imperial White packs. They look so good. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of white MOLLE accessories out there and the BattleFoam team said that they have to see what the sales of the packs are like before they'll look into white accessories.

I received my order last week but it was for two c-bags, which BTW makes great storage options for 5 GMT counter trays. Using one for my CC:E trays and another for my Old School Tactical trays.

Had to send an email demanding my order ship today or a refund and, miracle upon miracles, it was updated as shipped less than an hour later. Worst customer service ever (well, not worst, that would either be Mayday games or Funagain, but this is pretty close).

That is a pretty short wait for battle foam sale. Usually it is two full months or more. They usually warn people though.

When I placed my order, it said 2-3 weeks. And I ordered the least custom thing you could - just pluck foam.

And there's no way the delay could be because of some order queue. If that was the case, they wouldn't have been able to just up and fulfill my order like that. Any company would have explained the delay if that is what was causing the delay.

My order's still saying 'Awaiting Fulfillment'. Ordered on the 3rd. I tried contacting them on the 12th, and am yet to hear a reply. It's a two-person order, to save on shipping, and my friend's getting annoyed.

I thought I saw a notice that it would take 5-6 weeks for normal and 8+ weeks for custom. I received my non-custom order about a week ago, which was what I was expecting.

Whoops! Like a day and a half after I posted about them not replying, they replied! Apparently the last of the July sale stuff should be shipping by the end of this week. I guess my friend and I just got put to the back of the queue, despite being non-custom.
