One thing that became abundantly clear at Historicon was that I needed a better way to transport my figures. I had been using plastic storage containers, lined with magnetic sheets - all of my figures (except for the new Pulp era ones based on the clear plastic Litko bases anyway) have washer bases that work well with magnets - the problem was the sheets were never powerful enough to keep the figures stable, so when the container moved, so did every figure.
After setting up the test run of TCW on Wednesday and seeing all my figures toppled over, I made my decision to buy one of the foam carrying cases I've seen every year at Historicon on Thursday morning when the vendor hall opened. And you know what, for the first time, no foam carrying case vendor!!??
It has a shoulder strap, as well as a side pocket that you could fit a rules book or army book into. Nothing very big though, and definitely can't see more than two books fitting - depending on whether or not they were hardback too.
The bottom has these plastic feet attached to keep the case directly off the ground too, which is a nice addition.
Final verdict - super happy I now have foam cases to protect my figures and couldn't be more pleased with both the quality and cost of the Feldherr Cases. Highly recommended!
Thanks for looking!
*but...and there always has to be a but - because I'm OCD I now have to paint the bottoms of the washers on all the figures!!!! Now do I paint them black or brown...grrrrrrrrrrr*
