If you don't believe in a power of magnets solution, watch this movie, where we put small camera inside the case, while shaking it in our hands

Not sure ... I cannot see myself transporting my minis this way. I do not have magnetized bases, so they will fall over.

 

Depending on the bases you're using adding small rare earth magnets is pretty easy to do even after painting. I use baking sheets rather than anything fancy like this, but you can definitely store minis more safely and more densely than you can with foam.

They've added double- and triple-packs as additional rewards, but they are not cost-efficient. The double- and triple-packs come with only three shelves per case (the same as the $49 early-bird), but they're charging almost as much per case as for the five-shelf level.

 

I worked out the costs including shipping (which, from the comments, they don't appear to have bothered adding to the pledge levels even though they have the costs listed). The only one of the options for multiple packs which works out cheaper than the $49 level is the triple-pack to Rest-of-world. Triple pack to USA is equal cost and the rest of the options are cheaper, even when paying shipping multiple times.

Hans' review on Dakka:

 

https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/719341.page#9225633

 

 
They had a Indiegogo campaign running last year under the name of "Feldmaster". They changed the name, I'm guessing because of the similiarity with Feldherr.
 
 
They initially offered only a large version, which wasn't worth it imo. They introduced a smaller version (which is now on Kickstarter), which was a good price. I bought it.
 
They kept their timeframe for delivery. At least for me, I got multiple updates after already receiving mine, where it was clear they had issues with the big cases and the cover not fitting the frame. I believe they replaced the covers at no additional cost for backers.
 
The product is good, the frame was aluminium, the trays metal. It's light, but durable. The strap has a good length, the cover is good material.
I scrolled through the Kickstarter and they obviously adressed some of the few weak points of the case, mainly the moving metal trays. It wasn't more than a few milimeters, but good to see the clanking fixed. The frame is now metal, which I guess is good and the additional weight shouldn't matter that much with the size of the case.
 
The creator, Alexander, cares a lot about his product. They offered no building instructions upon delivery and although simple once you figure it out, it took some time to figure it out how to build it. I contacted them about it. Alexander send out a backer update with an assembly video in under a day. Furthermore, Alexander called me and apologized that it was simply too obvious for them after months of creating this product that the thought never crossed their minds. We talked some about our kids and what he's doing. He's a great guy and I'm happy that they are moving along to Kickstarter after learning the ropes on Indiegogo.
 
I can wholeheartedly recommend the case and the company.

This seems like a neat product. Has anybody compared it side-by-side with an equivalent Tablewar case? These seem less expensive, but I have no idea how similar they are in practice.

I haven't tried it with these cases, but in similar systems, you can usually substitute museum tack for magnets to get a similar result.

 

For that matter, my own experience with a Tablewar case taught me that I have not magnetized some minis as powerfully as I should have. :unsure:

      Pretty straightforward, a lady with more or less clothes.

      Introducing "Misa, a Night to Remember"! 
      On our store there is already an alternative version of Misa. In this project we decided to make it with more accessories, and through the objects, a different pose and always ... less dressed!
      She will be available in 75mm as well as 32mm scale, base and fullbody. By pledging you will receive the .STL files (unsupported and pre-supported) once the campaign has ended.
      So Happy 3D Printing everyone!

      Midlam keeps chugging new sets that are hard to resist.

      I skipped on the last gnome one, but the whimsical fancifulness of this one has got me hooked.

      Hi, we're Crow Land Publishing, and here's our first book, Wickerpunk. A supplement book for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with application for all fantasy and horror games, such as Pathfinder, Call Of Cthulhu and even superhero games, like Champions. It will be 275 pages.
      Folk horror – horror and supernatural fiction that relies on elements of the past, folklore, superstition, the dreadful majesty of nature, the darkest urges of old religion. And old gods. Where the landscape itself is a symbol of fear and dark majesty. 

Heroic fantasy – a dream of blades and magic, a dream of defiance of the dark powers of the world, where we can be our truest ideals of our self. 

And when these genres collide – we have Wickerpunk.  A genre in which the ancient and natural world of the Wyld meets the imperialist world of Industry.
      If you like film such as Gawain and the Green Knight, Dragonslayer and The VVitch, you'll like our book.
      If you like games such as Maiden of Sker, Greedfall, and Hellblade, you’ll like our book. 

If you like anime such as Princess Mononoke, The Ancient Magus’ Bride and Faery Gone, you’ll like our book.
      If you like TV shows such as The Witcher, Game of Thrones, (especially the White Walkers stuff!) and the classic 1980s Robin of Sherwood, you’ll like our book. 
      If you like novels such as The Mists of Avalon, The Dark Is Rising and The Broken Sword, you’ll like our book. 
      Wickerpunk is a sourcebook that instructs GMs and players alike on what wickerpunk looks like in a game of D&D or any fantasy roleplaying game.

      We have a small and short campaign live at Kickstarter.
      As the clunky title suggests, It's about a big virus, his small buddy and some masked adventurers.
       
      The all in level is 50 USD (60 Canadian) + postage
       
      Thanks for having a look!

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.
