Hey everyone, First time posting here, so hope that I do it right. Wondering if anyone here has good recommendations for how to best store/transport these awesome miniatures I've received. I'm pretty darn new to the miniatures war-game hobby and I know there's good options for storing/transporting your miniatures in foam and foam containers/bags like Battle Foam. Wondering especially if there's any good pluck foam options for these "irregularly" shaped miniatures. Any recommendations? I know WH/WH40k have pretty consistent size/shape/sculpts for space marines, but in my (noob) opinion these TOS minis are more diverse in shape/sculpt with plenty of weaker bases (1-legged sculpts for cavalry, infantry, etc.). I also wonder how to shape/pluck the foam for minis with (large) bases but smaller/narrower sculpts. Any recommendations for how to best measure these minis to know how much to pluck out (for pluck foam), carve out (for manually carved holes) or boxed out (for pre-shaped squares and rectangles)? I'm still gluing bases on to my 4 Alliances, but now that I'm finishing up I'm wondering how to best care for, transport and store these cool little investments. Planning was limited, haha. Recommendations by experts or experienced miniatures collectors is always appreciated!
So... We had our monthly big Malifaux Battlefest coming up in our game club. So I figured I'd do something special this time for the guys and keep it a secret until it was time to duke it out. This was a 3 night project. One night to cut the foam (Pink foam) and cut inlays like the precipice and where puddles would be located. Another night to sculpt/basecoat and add textures, and a final night for the painting, resins, flocking and whatnot. And here it is. Each tile measures 1 feet. We used some of the little finished other terrain pieces we had and most of the WIP terrain. but for three nights after work, it was a good surprise i'd say. I think I'm going to go next time with something I can cut in a more exact way, like wood for the bases of the tiles. I liked the idea, but it is hard not to cut at an angle with the foam, and made the fitting kind of iffy. This was colored with leftover housepaint, and Oil colors and washes, which are unexpensive, and strangely unused for terrain methinks. Resin is just tinted clear resin left to puddle. so, what do you think? like?
