X-Case Clear Expandable Miniatures Display and Transport

Recommended Posts

One thing I don't like about these cases are the hinges for the clear front. Mine come out/off a little more then I'd like. Other then that they are nice cases. I was able to put some fully blistered Con minis inside for the trip home. I have 2 as someone gave me their's & I was even able to see how the connections & such work. Pretty nice set up.

I have one each of the magecase and the newer xcase. They are pretty sturdy, and stack in several ways. I'm in for 6 of the clear cases. I want to use them to display and transport Malifaux crews.

 

These should work fine for storing pieces while they dry. If they were air tight, I'm not sure they would dry properly. There are several small holes in the cases, but you'd need a lot of dust in the air to pass through them.

Do the two different cases link together properly?

Yes, the magecase and the xcase have the same outside dimensions. They both link together just fine.

 

The only difference I can see is the magecase has a lip in the back towards the bottom that is meant to be a spring clip to hold in HeroClix pieces. You can use the lip as a slightly elevated back row for figures on 1" or smaller bases. With a little effort, I suppose you could cut out the clips if you have one of those cases and wanted a smooth floor.

Given that I intend to use this more as a paint case instead of a minis case, I'll probably use those as anchors for cardboard dividers, keep things organised.

Well I've backed for two.

If I get one in my ReaperCon swagbag and I like it I may up my pledge.

 

We don't get all the cool stuff in the mail-order swagbags that we would get if we were physically at the con. I had to order a swagbag as well, and I'd be surprised if we get one of these cases. They would definitely require a larger box and more postage.

 

i have two of these cases already in opaque white already, and went in for 6 more in clear. That should be enough for myself and my son for the time being.

I got one in my mail-order swag bag. It got me looking at these, and I think I'm going to have to order a couple in the future. It just won't be as part of the kickstarter because I've got too many things vying for my funds right now.

I have heard now of a couple people getting one, and a couple that have not. I suppose they just packed up what they had until they ran out. Such is life. I have been out of the country on business for the last couple weeks and will not get home to mine until the beginning of next week. Here's to crossed fingers for cool stuff.

 

Either way I am excited. The swag bag was enough to qualify for free shipping, the Halloween goodie bag, and the 25th anniversary mini for October. Lots of cool Reaper goodness waiting at home, whatever is in the box.

 

As for the x-cases, these are pretty cool. The ones I have are opaque with a clear front door, but they should really stand out in the 100% clear model. I may resign the opaque ones to storage of partially painted pieces on my desk, and use the all clear ones for display and transport of small team skirmish game teams.

Received my shipping notice earlier tonight. I ended up ordering 4 in white.

 

Not too pleased they're being shipped by FedEx though. 

It means I'll have to pay additional fees when they show up.

I have a shipping notice for mine; expected ... today. Hm.. we'll see. Fed Ex is notorious for doing stupid crap with packages...

Notice was amended to today at some point yesterday. And, they /did/ show up! A miracle!

Well, not really, but with FedEx, I swear... anything's possible.

 

I am pleased with them.

I have my clear cases now, and they are just as awesome as I expected. I am excited to start filling them with Malifaux crews. It's time to get busy painting these guys up.

      About this project
      League of Ancient Defenders (LOAD) is a two-team 2-6 player skirmish board game with stunning miniatures and intense gameplay modeled after popular battle arena online games. The vile forces of Chaos have invaded the island kingdom of Atlantis, humanity’s last hope. Players must leverage the unique abilities of their Heroes as they push three lanes simultaneously toward the opposing faction’s base. By destroying key enemy objectives, towers and spawn points, they will force the opposing team to abandon the battle in full retreat.
      RE-LOAD will be available in English, German, Spanish and French. Selection will be possible when the Pledge Manager goes live after the Kickstarter.

      About this project
      Welcome!
      We would like to invite you to our first on Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign dedicated to miniatures! We made a few before on other platforms, but now we are also here with new models and recast offer for all old ones. All of miniatures presented below are compatible with Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age. However you can use them in any other game you want.
      During our previous campaigns we showed our possibilities and strong orientation for reaching customers needs and vision of miniatures. Also projects presented in this campaign were started some time ago and developed with The 9th Age community to be as good as it was possible. Our very talented sculptors, artists and manufacturers are doing all their best to provide you with the best products possible. We have hope, and strongly believe, that you will enjoy what you see below.
      Your support is very important for us. While we see that our products are still needed we will run future releases. So thank you in advance to give us that possibility.
      How our process look like:
      1. 3D sculpt
       
      1b. 3D sculpt of alternative options (as option for bestsellers)
      2. Printing than casting resin models
      3. Professional painting (as special option)
       
       
      All 3D sculpts has already been made. Most resin molds also. We need your help to invest in missing production molds and materials to finish all open projects. Also stretch goals will help us raise funds to make some alternative versions and options for our miniatures, which for sure you will also like as base versions.

      Hello all! It has been a longtime dream of mine to have a line of barbarian miniatures, and I am finally going to try and make that happen via crowdfunding. This is the preview link to my campaign that has been approved and will launch on June 1, barring the need for massive overhaul or other catastrophe (perhaps invading barbarians).
       
      Barbaric Splendor Kickstarter One: Personalities (preview mode)
       
      Thanks for looking!
       
      edit: I am not sure how to get the Prelaunch tag to show in the thread title?
       
      EDIT: Campaign is live -

      I remember that the first Imbrian Arts KS had a lot of issues and delays, but I don't know whether it was eventually sorted out or not so if any previous backers have any info it would be worth speaking up.
       
      The minis look good though
