does anyone know of an alternative to the sterilite 7 drawer craft cart, which is no longer in production, that has pull out carrying cases/drawers (basically pull out, has a latching lid, and a carrying handle)?

@Stefan: I know! Now that you've tackled the problem about painting the game tiles, howzabout storage containers? Dwarvenite storage containers! Each storage container stores one KS set! The empty box would have something printed on them, so could be also be used as a large room or flipped over and be treated as a stone building. Or something. The lid could also be used as a large floor.

Yes, I've only had three iced coffees today. :D

Yeah, I would love to be able to buy foam trays from either Battlefoam and/or KR Multicase that fit my now extensive DF collection. This need has become rather larger now that I have the KS stuff which doesn't come with a handy box with fitted Styrofoam inserts inside. Also, those boxes for the classic DF stuff aren't really the best use of space. I think one could have foam trays that were designed to hold stuff better.

Battlefoam allows you to custom design trays that cost the same as their trays that have already been designed. Like the OP I would rather have trays that fit the various pieces available in the sets, instead of trying to figure out the dimensions myself.

Using either/both Battlefoam or KR Multicase, gives me a lot of different ways that I can store and transport my collection.

I just keep them in the boxes they came in and yeah with 40+ sets and lots of extras they are all over the house! I would hate to store them elsewise.

I tried the first option of storing DF by the type of set and it was way to slow setting up even a small build. I kept having to look for the correct piece, and when I ran out of pieces, I would have to get a piece out of a second set. Then putting the pieces away back into the foam insert would take forever!

Due to the large quantity of DF and miniatures I own, I've had to re-organize my storage three times. I've found that the best solution for quickly setting up a DF build and breaking one down for me is as follows;

I store all DF buy type of set and then by type of item in a plastic storage bin. EX: All medieval pieces are stored by the type of piece-all medieval flat wall pieces are in one bin. All Realm of Ancient floor pieces are in one bin.

All gaming miniatures (D&D minis) are alphabetized by the letter of their first name. Common minis like; orcs, trolls, golems, angels, etc have their own bin.

You can retro a small shallow closet for only $300 using second grade lumber with this adjustable shelving. ALL my boxes are stored on shelves in my garage and attic. Seriously speaking, I have hundreds of boxes stored, so it can be done! I've heeded everyone's warning here on the DF forum to keep my boxes!

I'm surprised nobody has tagged this other forum discussion on storage!

Mythic Party,

We looked into it, they seemed like fine products, I don't remember the details but we didn't pursue it any further...

I don't think there is anything keeping folks from ordering them on their own without them being official DF products right?


I buy this stuff all the time for my models and terrain, and I have to admit, these guys (Caseclub) is cheap as hell. 11x11x4" pick and pluck for ONE DOLLAR.

I currently get 3700 series "open" containers to hold all of my stuff and then use the pick and pluck to fill it. Total cost is around 8.00 a box, which is cheap considering that Reaper wanted 20$ or so for a smaller, crappier box.
