The custom tray creator is a somewhat finicky to get accustomed to, but once you figure it out, it is awesome! The customization options on these products are incredible and for hobbyists who have an endless assortment of differently shaped miniatures, this product is the greatest thing ever, ever!!! Thank you.
Double check your dimensions when customizing. Don't under-size your purchase.
Turned out better than expected. Looked great and fits the mechs.
These can be really handy. If you stick with the standard cutouts (squares, circles, etc.) issues should be minimal, and it’s nice to customize to what you actually need vs having a bunch of unused spaces. The tray creator is super easy to use as well! However, tread carefully with the premade custom shapes for specific models. I have tried out quite a few over the years and have generally been content. Obviously, they only take into consideration very standard positions/poses, so you really need to watch what configuration your model is in. In certain cases some custom shapes do not account for the model being on a base that is included in a kit and it’s not made very clear that is the case. Battle Foam Says: Hello! You are correct that our Custom Shapes for our Custom Trays are for standard builds. We do have the ability to take traces though, which means we can cut the shape to fit your exact build. We will do better in labeling in the future if there are variants within! Thank you for the review!
Works out well if you want to store an odd assortment of minis.
The custom cut foam is one of the 2 best options for your foam trays (the other being pluck foam). Be smart - get foam to fit your army's needs. Going the other way around is silly (i.e. buying models to fill foam).
The foam is much stronger than that used in other pluck trays so I feel safer about my figurines in it. The Custom tray service is super useful to arrange your figurines the wat you want, though it can take time to do it properly. One warning though: don't only at the base size of your models but also at weapons spreading beyond that base. I made that mistake and now have to cut through the foam to help fit the miniatures. Not a big deal though.
I purchased two custom trays for a friend's growing Imperial Guard army. My friend has written up some lore for his army and I requested a unique inscription for the foam based on that lore. Unfortunately, when the order arrived at his home, the inscription was missing! *gasp* I was pretty bummed out as the inscription would have taken the foam from great to amazing. I contacted Battlefoam and Stephanie both sympathized with my dilemma and also solved it! She had brand new custom trays made with the inscription added! So now my friend is super lucky and has 4 total custom trays! I cannot express how happy I was with Battlefoam for being understanding about the issue. Stephanie had it solved right away and I could not be happier! I will definitely be buying more from Battlefoam!
The laser cut foam came exactly to the dimensions i had specified using the online tool. However, be careful with some of the templates offered on the tool. For example, the Lord Discordant shape, which I used, was cut so tight that it was difficult getting the model into the foam and ironically was the only time I broke the model.. trying to fit it in the foam I assumed was designed specifically for that model. I would suggest going for pluck foam as an alternative and may be slightly less expensive. Battle Foam Says: Hello! We did have a snug fit on Mr. Lord Discordant due to the bits hanging off the base being spindly. We always err on the side of not allowing the model to move opposed to being loose. Due to your review though, we are going back and retesting fitment for the shape to make sure it is not only secure, but practical! Thank you Nicholas!
