Whilst looking around for a better way to store my toys I revisited battlefoam after initially disregarding them…
Just a quick one that may or may not help some people out.
Whilst looking around for how I wanted to transport my stuff I initially disregarded Battlefoam because the layouts, in my oppinion sucked…
This is not to get at them as they produce top quality products and I have done orders from them before for my Warhammer Fantasy stuff and can only say good thinks about the quality of the product but I just feel that they don’t actually play the game when it comes to X-Wing…
For Example the Imperial Fleet Tray come with space for 35 Small Ships and 3 Large which lets be honest is impressive but really why that configuration, 12 TIE advance and 11 Interceptors… Really.
Or if you want to store 2 YT-1300 you have to go with either a tray with space for 4 HWK’s or 10 Y-Wings.
Obviously Battlefoam being the awesome store that they are offer custom foam but I know from experience that the tool can be a little intimidating the first time you look at it but fear not.
Being the Nice Guy that I am I put the following together for you guys.
Those layouts will fit the following;
6 – A-Wings (12 if you don’t mind doubling up)
4 – B-Wings2 – E-Wings (4 should double up with no issue)
2 – HWK’s (don’t think these will double up but really, who has 4 hawks…)
12 – X-Wings or Z-95’s (the Z-95 will definitely double up, not sure on the X’s)
2 – Y-Wings (4 doubled)
2 – YT-1300
12 – TIE Fighters
2 – TIE Advanced (should double)
3 – Phantoms
2 – Defenders
6 – Interceptors
3 – Bombers (should double)
2 – Shuttles
3 – Firesprays
That is, in my opinion more like what a “standard” collection will look like at the moment and leave space for expansion in their bags or room for the Huge Ship tray that they do.
So feel free to use those if you want to do a custom order and who knows maybe they could become a standard tray at some point.
Having spoken with the guys from Battlefoam in the UK and e-mailed them about custom orders before they are really helpful and friendly so just give them a call and chat about what you want if my trays don’t work for you or just leave a comment and I will see if I can make a more appropriate tray for your collection/need. Oh and no I am in no way affiliated with Battlefoam but just felt that this could do with being written somewhere…
