The bag does exactly what it needs to do. While it doesn't offer much outside protection, it fits a respectable amount of foam, and has some room for accessories.
It is easy to carry, light, and very affordable.
For something like a skirmish game, it has made my life so much easier.
I've had this bag for a couple of years. It's nice and convenient to hold a medium sized army, and light to carry.
Bearing in mind that my Space Marines are Rogue Trader/2nd Ed era models, so they're a bit smaller than current ones... I've fitted in 2 Land Raiders, 2 Rhinos, Dreadnought, 6 bikers, 15 Terminators and more than 55 power armour/scout marines.
I also recently figured out I could fit an extra 1" tray on the top for some more regular sized figures. We'll see how that goes.
One of the reasons I chose this bag is because it has the same sized trays as the existing GW cases I had, so I can easily swap around armies depending on how much I want to carry.
I'll note that I carry a separate bag for my dice, rulebooks etc.
I am very pleased with the product i bought the bag is great. The foam trays fit well in the bag and the trays are a great quality. its great knowing my 40k minatures are protected after working hard to paint them.
The basic Shield Bag is perfect, as it encompasses all you need. The first layer can hold a ton of tactical marines, but anyone with a flag or a sword held above their head have to be kind of awkwardly placed to fit in the normal spots. The second sheet is much more forgiving, and can hold a large amount of bigger guys, as well as several bikes or small groups of marines. The third sheet is great for an all purpose, as you can cut it to fit vehicles or whatever else large models you have. The front of the bag is perfect for dice, but unfortunately the bag itself is not large enough to fit in books and often has to be squeezed a little to hold in all the foam.
Overall, it is an amazing purchase for the value, and an easy and cheap way to carry your troops.
I got this for my wife because she just recently started playing WFB and so far so good. We have to travel to the LGS to play most of the time so it was nice for her to finally stop using milk crates and use a case. So far it holds her 1500pts of Lizard men just fine. Some of the banner holders are a little big for the slots but a little razor blade work to turn two spaces into one and blamo instant banner holding slot. Thanks BF for a great affordable product.
Both foam and bag are excellent. Remember this is not a full size armored bag, this is a "I'm on a budget and will be extra careful" bag. Having said that, IMO it beats any other soft side bag out there, and I've used several. It's a good size for a starter to medium size army. I've got 1500 pts of Eldar in mine and I have plenty of troop space left. The foam is typical Battlefoam quality (awesome) and the bag is their quality canvas. I have to say it looks better in person than on the website, and it looks great there.
Its a little spartan on pockets, but definitely serviceable. the front small pouch fits my dice block and tape measure, and a couple small additions. The book pocket fits my codex just fine. Its snug and actually adds a bit of protection and rigidity that way, both for book and bag.
side pockets are tight, enough room to put a phone and charger/headphones. A tablet would fit perfect. I've got my blast & flamer templates in the one side, I put my headphones in the other (for lack of anything better). There is enough room in the main compartment (on top) I put my campaign notes and army list papers loose on top.
True, I have a Battlefoam PP bag, all armored and I love it, but this bag fits into my "just starting 40k" budget, and does it with style and quality. I'll be expanding or upgrading next year, but until then, this bag is about perfect.
The actual foam is great. The dimensions are a bit hard to imagine until you have a battle foam product, so the size of the pluck foam compared to the other two can be surprising, but it worked out OK for me. My only complaint is that the side pockets are almost useless for most gaming purposes when you have the pluck foam. It holds everything I might put in a side pocket. the side pockets are too small and too slim for anything substantial or breakable. Still, a good product, reasonable price and a good entry to the product line. The shipping time is nuts though. 4 weeks for mine. Be ready for that.
