Default What do you use as a carrying case?

I know most of you use the standard GW one probably, but for now I'm using this fold out mini dresser per say. It holds alot of troops, but it can't hold vehicles or anything. Anyone got any homebrew ideas for inventive and safe carrying cases?

There was a topic about this not long back, if you used the Search function you would have found a topic with some great ideas as to what to use and some links to sites with good carry cases.

I generally use a hardware store issue multi-shelf carrier intended for holding small bits like nails or bolts, it's shelves are resizable. I use a stiff box like that of a 40k tank or a D&D bow to carry large models, paints, and codexies.

I did search "carrying case" but all I found was "well the CASE may be blah blah blah" but I'll take another look.

there were 2 threads, they're fairly old and short though..

how do you transport minis
Where do you store your models?

I store mine in foam padded brief cases.. I'm looking at getting a big attache case.. Apart from that, a plastic box with scraps of foam, and a lunchbox with more scraps of foam for my hammerhead.

Most of my models spend their 'down time' in shoeboxes. When they are on the march i use an old sewing kit case. Has two levels of sperated comparments for troops and ample room in the bottom for the Rulebooks.
