I wanted to extend a huge thanks to user HGBlob for his tremendously generous gift of Star Wars miniatures to my school's game club. My students got a glimpse at some of the models he sent and were nearly foaming at the mouth in excitement to try it out. Furthermore, at our first meeting, kids were already trying to call dibs on playing it for when they arrive on the scene.

He sent me so much, I am still organizing and packaging for middle school student consumption. I believe the answer is 100 point pre-constructed kits that the students can easily pick up and begin playing with. For cleanup, they simply have to put the elements from their respective kits back in the storage containers from which they came.

I apologize if a post like this is out of place on these boards. If you know of a more appropriate board, please send the link along.

Now, to find cost-efficient, 100-point squad-sized, clear boxes that will hold the models, dice, dials, cards, range ruler, and maneuver templates. HGBlob sent a few 9"X14" Plano clear boxes (his kindness knows no bounds). I think something just a bit smaller might do the trick. Suggestions welcome and appreciated.

Get the superglue ready, my students are pretty rough on these models; but they will have a blast.

Probably just some kind of little lightweight plastic food container would work well. And be very cheap and stackable.

Like the ones that aren't straight up tupperware but aren't disposable either.

I have indestructible tape measures with lifetime warranties for my class. I have had to replace several over the years. When I first saw the models, I was impressed by their exquisite detail and sad for the fate I knew awaited them. Working on a sign-out system for each kit to try and minimize the damage.

Superglue primed and ready, just in case.

These? https://www.amazon.com/Plano-2-3700-Prolatch-Stowaway-four/d...

I use these for my small ships. I can fit several squads plus all the small cards, templates, tokens, dice, damage deck, etc in one.
