I'm about to start prepping 50+ figures for my kid's paint and take in August. In the past I stored and transported them in a cardboard box with double sided tape on the bottom. They mostly stayed put in nice rows. Well the tape is wearing out and I'm looking for a slightly better looking solution. It has to hold figures from Mousling size to mounted horsemen, in Bones, plastic and metal on all kinds of bases. I get all kinds of donated figures, I don't re-base them if I don't have to. I have a single figure budget. I run the event with donated figures and paints from friends and the community, and a few dollars from my own pocket. Whatever I come up with needs to be cheap and relatively easy to set up and access for the kids. That's why I'm using a cardboard box now. Anyone have a better idea? I'll consider anything.
I'm currently looking through my unpainted OLD miniatures and thinking about finishing off some of them. I have a feeling that this is going to result in a shift in direction in my miniatures hobby for the next year or so, but we'll see. Like this guy: Anyway, I'm looking for some basing suggestions. I usually use a variety of pretty simple treatments, since I want the bases to remain fairly unobstrusive when gaming. The problem here is that I don't know whether these are more likely to be deployed in dungeons (on a Dark Platypus mat) or on various green ground cloths in skirmish games. Any pointers on something that would look natural and unobtrusive on a variety of surfaces? My favorite easy mixed use treatment so far is a half/half mix of brown gravel and grass, like these 1/72 scale fantasy skirmish figures.
