Over the years I have collected a few citadel cases, usually with figures in them. I no longer have the figures(yeah) but still have the cases. The problem is that most of the foam has been plucked since HW figures rarely fit in the space allotted for one figure, due to backpacks, banners, spears etc.


So does anyone know where I can ge foam that fits the citadel hard plastic figure cases? The ones that usually came with red foam?

Like this one..

Best solution I've found so far is buying sheets of foam in craft shops and cutting cavities with a really sharp knife. It doesn't work great, but it does work, and the cost is minimal.

I've used Battlefoam over the years to store minis in. I slip the trays into the cases for traveling, but otherwise they are stacked tidily on shelves.

I would go with Figures in Comfort,

Your link is no longer available so I don't know what size you want.
This is what I can suggest link

Each finger is 0.5 inch by 0.5 inch

They come in different thicknesses and widths. If a made size fits your box go with that. If not choose the proper thickness and cut to fit your box. Find a craft hobby sheet, such as these from Hobby Lobby

Use a good glue along the outside edge and glue to the base sheet

Kaiser Rushforth (KR) have trays specifically designed for Citadel cases. I have used them lots and they are really good.
