So I have virtually everything from my Typhon pledge delivered now. That's a lot of stuff!

I'm opting to combine everything in my Deluxe Storage Box for drafting. Which means tons of options for our players, but it will only get to the table when I'm hosting at my house. But that's fine.

I would like to rearrange the storage though. I don't need to waste box space for Activation Cards, Stat Clips, or Dash Boards. Those are all nicely stored in my DSB.

I'd like to use foam storage to consolidate the storage of the minis. So far I've only seen Feldherr talking about making a foam storage solution, but that's only for a God pledge, not Typhon.

https://www.feldherr.net/en/feldherr-value-set-for-the-compl...

Has anyone here heard of any other companies (preferably in the US) that is creating foam storage for MBP? Or does it make sense to try using pluck foam to hold all these minis?

I actually just bought two of those bags from Amazon for this game. This was after I emailed Battlefoam but received no response. I winged it a bit for the foam sizes but I can let you know how it turns out.

Can you please clarify which are "those bags" you are referring to?

I am curious as well. Looking for ways to store the game myself.

I'm leaning toward getting pluck foam and putting that in the original boxes (because the artwork is gorgeous!).

Something like this:
https://www.amazon.com/Pick-Pluck-Pre-Cubed-foam-bottom/dp/B...

Would need to measure the thickness since we have different scale models (so all humans/troops would go on one sheet, all gods/titans on a thicker sheet, etc).

Looks like the Core and Pandoras boxes are both 43.2 × 31.2 × 12.5 cm, so may need to combine more than one sheet together (probably glue them) to get the right dimensions.

I'm just not sure if everything will still fit in the original boxes doing this. The minis are packed pretty closely in the plastic trays, but there is a bit of empty space between each plastic tray.

I think he's referring to Feldherr carrying bags on Amazon, like this:
https://www.amazon.com/Feldherr-Figure-empty-full-size-half-...

Some of them come with foam trays, like this:

This has roughly the same length/width as the Core/Pandora boxes (44.5 x 32 x 9.5 cm):
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BP5T5P0/ref=ox_sc_act_t...

Another one (45 x 32 x 6 cm):
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NPWLUHW/ref=s9_dcacsd_d...

Smaller one (26.5 x 21 x 3 cm)
https://www.amazon.com/SRA-Cases-Pre-Scored-Block-Inches/dp/...

Doesn't include a bottom or topper, though. In the reviews someone used the plucked foam pieces as the bottom cushion.

I'm still looking through Amazon to see what else is available, especially around the same size as the game boxes, but with different heights. The Feldherr ones might be the way to go, especially for 1" miniatures.

Thanks calc!

When Feldherr releases their MBP foam trays, I'm guessing those will be used with their carrying bags, and not the original boxes.

Would really like to keep the original boxes if at all possible, but there's a very real chance I'll paint my set. So pluck foam trays might be my only option.

Hey Jerrod, how did your foam trays work out? Can you share some pics?

Still no word from Feldherr on their MBP tray solution yet. I'm not sure if that will include all expansions or only the core game.

At this point I'd like to start painting, so I'll need to get foam storage soon.
