What are people planning to use to transport their teams and pitch? I'm considering the Battlefoam P.A.C.K. C4 bag. It's the right length and width to fit the pitch inside when folded up. I'd to see what others are thinking though!

I'm either going to cannibalize a GW foam tray (that came with their older cases) or try video tape boxes and foam that I have left after I sold my Dreadball stuff off. The VHS boxes may not be deep enough to accommodate these 30+mm bases on the new models, though. I'm using the original box to transport the games contents otherwise.

For the smaller minis of the older edition I use small Feldherr cases that each can hold a team comfortably. With these new, larger models I think I will need to think about something else. I don't have my copy yet, but maybe the box itself could be used for a custom insert? If not, I am quite happy with the KR multicase system...

I just saw that Battlefoam appears to be selling a foam insert for the game's box (it looks like it's the new edition). I've had good success with their other products for GW games including AoS, Silver Tower, and Deathwatch Overkill.

That sounds like a great idea - if you only want to store the two starter teams in the box. In my opinion Battlefoam wastes too much space and I am sure that it will be possible to store the two teams plus some additional players (more Blitzers, Starplayers) or even a third team (Skaven) in the original game box.

For people who really get into the miniature painting and storage thing, a really excellent system is magnetic storage, using sheets of metal (not aluminum!) glued to plastic trays and applying real earth magnets inside the bases of the models.

No need for foam, they won't move in transit unless, I suppose, if you dropped them - but maybe not even then. I'm trying to find something that can hold two teams + cards + reference materials + rulebook.

If/when I locate such a solution, I'll come back and post. (I'm always looking for ideas, so anyone else please do the same!)

If you will need to haul them all around with you, these are pretty nice, if you magnetize your bases and use metal, or you can just line the compartments with foam from a sewing store:

Storage - Plano Stow N Go:



Foam - JoAnne Fabric - Heavy Duty - 0.5" x 24" x 90" - $16:

If Plano boxes just weren't so damn ugly...
I like the idea of magetizing everything.

KR Multicase has 32 different tray configurations for BloodBowl (and Elfball and Deathball), but currently they are still for 25mm bases. I guess in a few weeks/months they will have updated trays custom made for the larger models.

They look like this one:
https://www.krmulticase.com/product/traysets/FFB-BB-A?m=FFB

And you can mix and match and fill one of their very affordable cardboard boxes or their metal cases or their carrying systems:
https://www.krmulticase.com/cases

I use them for Sails of glory, Wings of Glory and Firestorm Armada and are quite happy with them.

Feldherr also has BloodBowl specific products:
https://www.feldherr.com/fuer/blood-bowl/
And the neat thing about their cases is that they also have very small one - just large enough for one team (though maybe without a big guy)

I like the idea of the magnets. Two thoughts:

1) Would a Plano 3650 (which is half the box width and 1 3/4") accomodate the figures, with the rest on the side or on top?

2) I'm contemplating a box made to fit, lined with foam, that if stood on its side would resemble a LEGO minifigure case. Each "shelf" would have metal to secure the figures in the row, and foam on top and bottom provide some protection from shock.

I cart my Imperial Assault figures around in egg cartons padded with plastic shopping bags, and was planning to do something similar with the Blood Bowl minis too. At least until they release models that are too big.

I'm thinking something like this -- could hold 2 teams, dice, cards, rules on top, it's cheap. Looks like it would be easy to glue metal pieces to the bottom of the compartments. But the compartments are fixed, not able to be changed. Ideally, for magnetized models, just long trenches with a metal plate are better . . . but it's an option. It's not as clear that the rules can fit in the lid of this, either:



This one is probably a bit better - modifiable compartments, space for everything, and most likely, the rules can fit in the box much better than the previous one.



Still mulling.

On the upside, my Blood Bowl arrived yesterday, I washed, rinsed, and dried the models. I cut out the game tools and I think I'm going to start with the Human team first.

Looks like it would accommodate the base game figures. Not sure about the "big guys" - they haven't been released, yet. But 1.75 inches is 42mm - it'll be a tight fit, probably don't want to have your figures with arms raised over their heads.

Interesting. Would like to see pics if you end up trying this.

For now I am just keeping the minis in the box on top of the seperation sheet, with the bases tucked under the side of that. They will move, but since i painted them with Quickshade there shouldn't be any damage.
