I bought a storage chest today for the growing armies. Nice and solid, good bearings, 6 drawers, two solid handles on the side and a lock. And it is in French Blue! Aim is to keep the dust off, minimise damage and keep them nicely ordered ready for a fight.
It fits all my terrain, rules and small brigades with plenty of room to spare. I can fit a battle mat in as well at the moment. The three small draws can hold approximately 18 x 30 man infantry battalions each or cavalry and other bits.
I should have room in the two long middle draws to have an army in each, with the three top draws for miscellaneous bits. The top tray and bottom larger drawer is for terrain. The whole kit is portable - probably take two people to carry it safely. The magnetic bases of the troops stop any jostling or damage in the transport.
|Not even half full|
|Room for rules, OOB's plenty of terrain|
|Two of the three small trays|
|Brunswick and British tray|
|French tray, bit empty really|
|Hills, spare buildings, swamps and a forest|
Try doing this with 28mm! Now I need to fill it.
