    Default Transport Ideas????

    Hi

    Just a question.
    I am still paiting and upgrading my ships (the 1/2 are finsihed now), so I am starting to think about
    how to store and transport them? These small boxes by Ares are not perfect.
    How to you do this? Ships, cards, maybe islands?
    Searching for ideas

    Best,
    Lutz

    Good question... many of us are still experimenting.

    In my case...
    *Starters - still in original boxes.
    *Kickstarter Exclusives - the four I opened are in a third Starter box, along with a Mat set, a Counter set, a set of Terrain Packs, basically only missing the rulebook to be a homemade full Starter.
    *Oceans, Victory and Constitution - 1-2 each in these: https://reallyusefulproducts.co.uk/u...b00_7litre.php
    *Meregildos, non-Victory British First Rates and 74's - 1 ship with base/cards/etc in each box on these: https://reallyusefulproducts.co.uk/u..._3litreOrg.php
    *64's and smaller - 2 ships per box with bases/cards/etc in each small case on these: https://www.irisusainc.com/extra-lar...eper-kp-xlpho/

    Still trying to figure out an outer tote big enough to hold everything but small enough to fit in the car...

    All mine are still boxed and just go into a travelling trolly for transporting Lutz

    This is one good thin about Ares not being so aggressive about expanding Sails... I think I can fit everything Sails into just one of these:

    while WGF and WGS would probably each require 2 or 3 if not more.

    That's a very good question. Actually carrying the ships is already a tough task but I'm even more worried about the day when I have to carry islands and scenery. I think there is no option but to get a luggage like yours, Rob. On one hand, I know it depends on the scale of the chosen wargame for choosing the right suitcase but on the other hand, one doesn't wanna destroy everything just because the equipment was not optimal.
    "Les passions sont les vents qui enflent les voiles du navire ; elles le submergent quelquefois, mais sans elles il ne pourrait voguer."
    "Passions are the winds that fill the sails of a ship ; they sometimes overwhelm her, but she could not sail without them."- Voltaire

    The beauty about the trundle box I use is that you can bungee a couple of plastic foam lined plastic boxes on the top to hold extras or scenery.
