Building Out a Custom Foam Tray Tutorial

Building Out a Custom Foam Tray Tutorial

With a new edition of Age of Sigmar came the desire for a new army by Romeo.  The new Soulblight Gravelords won him over, and while we were figuring out how best to protect and transport his newfound army, we stumbled onto the fact that we would need to create some Custom Foam.  The custom built Negash meant having to do some tracing for the specially built mini! 

We get asked for help in this department by many of our customers so we thought it would be a great idea to document this process and give a step-by-step guide.  

Let's begin!

Step 1: The first thing you would want to do is build the minis.  This is especially true if you plan on getting creative with your basing or adding some extra bits to a model to give it that special personal touch.  If you know you are going to be building to the letter of the instructions, our Battle Foam Custom Tray Creator should have those covered!

Step 2: Now that we have everything built, we want to lay the models out that need custom foam.  This helps you decide what we want to group together.  You will need to organize the quantity and type of trays you want to create. 

Building Battle Foam Custom Trays is ideal for Heroes, Cavalry, and other models that are smaller in number and/or unique in shape and size.  This lets you be efficient with the space you have in your desired bag. 

Pictured below you will see the models that Romeo wants to protect with a custom tray for his Soulblight Gravelords!

Step 3: Now that we have the models we want to protect with our Custom Tray, our next task is to visit the Battle Foam Custom Tray Creator.  

Whether you have a Battle Foam bag already or still need to purchase one, use the Bag Navigator to help load the right size of trays for your models.  The CTC will even help you purchase the best fitting bag for your game type and army. 

Our CTC recommended to Romeo the P.A.C.K. 720.  If you are a seasoned CTC pro or know what you are doing already, feel free to skip straight to creating.
