As I mentioned on another thread (SF Battle reports TMP link ) I have just managed to drop my troops packed in KR cardboard cases (two of).

These were placed in a KR double ruck sack, and fell around three feet from the boot of a (modern, so at the rear) VW Beetle to tarmac and yet (when I summoned up the courage to check a couple of hours later) the three detachments inside 40 or 50 resin and metal elements including figures and AFVs with loaded, etched brass turret bustles and combat car roofs from the same material all survived without any damage whatsoever.

My support for their product is still vast: I have three aquillas, about 8 of the card boxes (with three rucksacks from KR to carry them) and one hard case and I now pack all of my 15mm forces in nothing else.

I second that.

A few years ago I dropped a case full of FOW BF tanks. Was from a similar height or maybe a little more, not a chip or a scratch.

For me the acid test is always: "do they survive a motorcycle ride?"

The answer to that is still a yes so I'm still very happy:)
