What is a Miniature Carry Case?

A Miniature Carry Case with or without removable metalized trays is a specialized storage container designed to protect and transport miniatures used in tabletop gaming, such as Warhammer, D&D, Star Wars x Wing, or Malifaux. They are specifically designed to fit the size and shape of any sort of miniatures and especially prevent damage during transit.

The Green Stuff World army transport bag is designed to be versatile, light, and customizable. The metalized trays are removable, which makes it easy to access the miniatures and rearrange them as needed. The trays are also metalized, which means that they are resistant to damage and can withstand rough handling during transportation.

They consist of a hard, durable outer shell made of plastic, metal, or other materials that can withstand rough handling during transportation. There are different sizes for different amounts of miniatures. Some of them are designed to hold only a few figures, while others can hold dozens or even hundreds of figures. Some of them also come with additional compartments for storing accessories such as board game dices, rulebooks, or painting supplies.

Our version is highly recommended because, in addition to being useful for transportation, it can be also used by collectors and hobbyists who want to protect and display their figures in their homes. These Warhammer carry case, like the ones from Green Stuff World, are designed to showcase the figures while also keeping them safe from damage or dust.

There is also an old version, a miniature carry case with foam many times called Warhammer carry case including of course a foam lining that often offers the possibility to cut into specific shapes to hold each figure in place, preventing them from touching or rubbing against each other. This not only prevents damage but also makes it easier to find and retrieve specific figures when needed. These types of miniatures transport cases are in complete disuse because the foam system tends to damage the miniatures as the holes are very strict and not very configurable, so it is very common to damage an arm, a spear, or a banner very easily. In addition, it takes a long time to keep the figures in position, wasting a lot of playing time.

What are miniature carrying cases?

The term Warhammer carry case is often used to describe any type of miniatures transport box that is specifically designed to transport Wargame miniatures but in particular, Warhammer miniatures, which are a popular line of tabletop wargame figurines produced by Games Workshop.

Wargame miniatures are often highly detailed and can be fragile, making it important to transport them carefully to avoid damage. These types of storage cases are designed to provide a secure and protective transport option, helping to prevent damage during transit.

While Warhammer is not the only type of miniature figure used in tabletop gaming, it is one of the most popular, but it is important to say that most miniature carrying cases will be perfectly valid for any figure collectors, and hobbyists to perform the same task, and many times even better and almost always cheaper. It is worth noting that a miniature carry case is just another, but expensive, type of miniature storage case that can also be used to transport other types of figures, as it has been designed to fit various miniatures sizes and shapes.

Types of Warhammer Storage Case

There are various types available in the market, and choosing the right type depends on the size and quantity of miniatures you need to transport or store. Here are some of the most common types of Miniature Storage Case:

  • Hard Cases: Many times they are simply tool-carrying cases with adaptations. They are made of durable materials, such as plastic, aluminum, or steel, and are designed to provide maximum protection to the figures. These cases are lined with foam padding, which cushions the figures and prevents them from moving around during transportation. They are limited by space, they do not protect the figure from the human who puts the figure in, forcing it into position, and a lot of time is wasted picking up everything every time you need it. This type is just disappearing because the foam system is obsolete. 
  • Soft Cases: They are made of materials such as nylon or polyester and are designed to be lightweight and easy to carry. They are less protective than hard cases but are still effective at preventing damage to the figures. They typically have a shoulder strap or handles for easy carrying. This is the same as above, but lighter and weaker on the outside. Also obsolete because of the same problems. There is a valid version of the soft carrying case that includes pre-cut foams, which allows adapting the holes of the foams to the figures.
  • Backpacks: Backpacks are a convenient option for transporting wargame miniatures. They are designed to be carried on the back, which leaves the hands free to carry other items. Backpacks are often made of durable materials, such as nylon or polyester, and come with adjustable straps for a comfortable fit. Some backpacks have removable trays for storing miniatures, while others have built-in compartments for accessories. Run away from everything with foam!!!!
  • Customized or handmade: Almost everything fits here, from a simple tray to a shoebox. It's the cheapest since you will usually need a metal adhesive sheet and lots of magnets. Imagination to the power! 
  • Magnetic Cases: They are a unique type of miniature carry case that uses neodymium magnets to hold the miniatures in place. They can be made of metal or other lighter materials such as the Green Stuff World version. The figures can be placed directly onto the tray and will stay in place during transportation. Magnetic cases are easy to carry, making them a popular choice for traveling with delicate objects. They are perfect for quick pick-up and are the only model that protects the figures from the humans themselves, who simply have to place the figures upright. 
  • Paint carry case: It is a specialized container designed to store and transport hobby paint bottles and other small painting accessories such as paintbrushes. They are designed with foam compartments that organize and protect them during transit.
