Default What do you keep your winged Hive tyrant in?

Hey guys I'm having some problems storing my winged hive tyrant, it doesn't fit into any model case cause of the wings, and right now it's wrapped in paper towels sitting in a cardboard box. Can anybody give me some suggestions on what to use to store this beast

Well, I use a toolbox filled with foam for my larger creatures.

I modelled the tyrant with the wings up and, coincidentally, it fits in my car's cup holder on the way to where ever the game is...

On your box with paper towels:
A Hive Tyrant with both the wings and box-with-paper-padding upgrades may upgrade his box-with-paper-padding to a box-with-peanuts-or-torn-foam for +15 points.

Trade off 3 spinegaunts for it or something.

The old generation box that the gaunt swarm came in is large enough to fit my unusually tall flyrant. I fill it with torn foam.

I carry mine in the top portion of my tackle box.

mine, although not yet assembelled will have its wings pinned so that I can fit it in an ordinary army case more easily.

Seconded. I believe that's what Gareth does too.

My flyrant usually rides shotgun on the seat surrounded by boxes (as in my gaunts warriors etc are in the GW boxes they came in, and I surround him so he won't fall off in the event of a quick turn). If walking he is in my hand. He has broken twice already (not the wings, but his tail as he has no legs and his tail supports him) so I am getting tired of repairing it.
