We catch up with Romeo from Battlefoam at Adepticon 2011 and he gives us the lowdown on new bags for Mantic, Heavy Gear and Mercs etc.
Visit them here: http://bit.ly/BattleFoam
A person that knows how to promote the products. No wonder they do so well.
I really like their stuff… I’ll have to order one.
Battle Foam FTW! Admit ably a bit on the pricy side, But totally worth it to protect my precious figs. (^_^)
I have one for my metal GKs and it holds them perfectly.
Romeo’s stuff is top of the line… you have to pay for quality kids… fact!
I stand by my KR Multicase! But yes, Battlefoam makes an outstanding product.
I have the limited edition P.A.C.K 720 (its black ) the red Malifaux bag and the Warmachine bag. I will be getting more, no question, his stuff is the best on the market and I have tried pretty much everyone else’s product out there. I really wouldn’t put my mini’s in ANYTHING else. Is it pricey, not for what you get would be my honest opinion. I just wish he’d hurry up any contact Corvus Belli or vice versa and make all us Infinity players an Infinity bag. Andy or anyone at BoW can you suggest it?
I have my doubts about his hard foam, its something he promotes and I can understand that with plastics its all good, but I have my doubts with metal, metal models are better with soft foam in my opinion, anyone who has battlefoam can give feedback?
PS I have a hell of a lot of Battlefoam stuff and you don’t get chunkier metal mini’s than Warmachine and the foam is bloody brilliant. I currently keep my Infinity stuff in my PACK 720 and it works well. PM me on the offcial Infinity forums if you want to know more mate. I honestly can’t speak highly enough of the Battlefoam products I have… and my cats love them. lol.
@psychoticstorm, I have 3 of Battle Foams cases, a Warmachine case, a PACk 720 and a PACK 432 both of which are customised for my ever growing Flames of War collection.
As far as the denser foam and metal goes…it is a total win. Other than 2 warjacks my entire Khador collection is metal. The Flames of War stuff is even HEAVIER as BF use a ton of lead in their models! So far, not a single issue with the foam rubbing paint off.
Having seen the benefits of custom cut foam, I will never go back to pluck and pick again. Not for metal models at least…which is the VAST majority of my collections. I have a small Tau army and a small Skaven army in plastic and for these pluck and pick works well enough as there is no weight to speed up the process of it falling apart. My Khador, Circle of Orboros, FoW Germans and my rather large 28mm WWII German collection will all end up in Battle Foam.
To be brutally honest, the price of the cases is not a huge issue. I really do believe that Battle Foam charge a fair price for their stuff (I am talking about ordering custom load outs for cases). Battle Foam satisfy the 2 biggest needs I have for a case, protection and maximum storage capacity.
I do have issue with the charges for International postage for Battle Foam cases…..they are getting way overpriced now.
@garwjenk I have heard nothing but good things about the KR cases, but they still lack the raw ability to custom order the foam cut exactly as you need. I also don’t like using a stack of camera cases to lug around what can fit into a single Battle Foam case.
Well i have an old terrible GW BOX i hate it and would like to upgrade to something more stylish and BETTER for my models, could anyone recomend soemthing for my tyranids?
I personally have he P.A.C.K. 720 and have the Heavy Gear Blitz Bags both custom for my Heavy Gear Blitz army! Great bags and awesome product!
