I realize this will vary from man to man, from area to area and from country to country, but I am interested in how you store, and mostly. transport, your 28mm WW2 dudes

Luckily I haven't had any issues yet but I am packing them willy nilly at best. I always magnetized my 15's, but these are a different animal and many have plastic bases.

I would love to hear how you do it. (Store and transport miniatures, that is.)

Foam filled carrying bags designed for the job.

For 28mm single based figures, I mount on fender washers and transport in Rubbermaid shoe boxes lined with magnetic strips.

Lackeys. And a whip.

Steel and magnet.

I basically do what this fellow does:

Sabol Army Transport(tm) pluck-foam and carry case, though I also have an old Citadel blow-molded case that I use for my civilians.

28mm stuff, individually based on Pennies, megnetic strip on the bottom and carried in box files lined with steel paper. Same as everything else.

For 28s (and 54s) I often put a layer of bubbewrap inside the top of the box to discourage them sliding around.

I use nothing but Sabol Army foam and cases. They have served me well for over ten years.

Working on it.

All my figures are based, so Rubbermaid plastic boxes with shelf rubber non-skid material.
