My Name is Robert, my business partner (Eric) and I have scoured hobby shops and online retailers looking for affordable Mini storage or transport cases for our miniatures. We always end up taking our last army out of foam and putting it into a pile to transport our new army. We got very tired of damaging our well painted models and decided to address this issue.

What we have designed is a storage case for miniatures. It is not complicated or fancy but will keep your models safe while at home or on the road. A sturdy cardboard construction that is designed to hold the weight of a small human but light weight and compact enough to work as an at home storage solution. We are packing these boxes with enough foam to hold 160 models . The original foam will be 1" Infantry foam and is designed to fit into most standard sized cases.

Our retail price on these boxes will be $30 making them cheaper than most of its competitors. We are accomplishing this by doing the designs ourselves and purchasing the boxes and foam in bulk.

We are sick of overpaying for foam and we hope that you all approve of our solution.

Risks and challenges

Our first challenge is going to ensuring delivery times and quality inspection from our manufacturer in China with the Chinese new year quickly approaching.

Our second challenge will be designing and creating new foams sheets for our expansion goals. (please email us if you have a request on this.)

We have also set ourselves a tight delivery date. This is our best estimate at when these products will get delivered without complications although things sometimes do happen.
