Shadows of Brimstone Model Storage Option

One of the hard things about being a Shadows of Brimstone hoarder is that the model count for a completist is the sheer number and how to store/transport them. Some are a little on the fragile side (undead miner hands!), others are huge (Beli’al!). I was transporting all of mine to date in a Battle Foam transport bag, that I’d all but filled up and still had two large models, the Harbinger and the big worm, in another container. Because I’m waiting on some GenCon treats to arrive that include more models and the rest of the Kickstarter hasn’t yet arrived I realized I’d have to buy another bag or find something more modular to cover my needs. I also found it distracting at the table to dig for what we need in-game and this option allows easy location of the required baddies while we game.

I started with Really Useful Boxes that I already had for some different projects/storage. They’re, wait for it, really useful and I highly recommend the line. They’re stackable, durable, lock well, etc. Then I grabbed magnets from this great shop (local, so got to go in and shop with one of their engineers) Amazing Magnets and metal shingles at 84 cents each from Home Depot. Armed with some model glue and a glue gun I went to work. Still need a couple more metal sheets, and 100 magnets plus later!!

Edit: was asked which model number at Amazing Magnets: Product # D094A2 magnet. diameter: .1875″/thickness: .09375″, grade N40. They were $18.10 for 100.

    Just getting into shadows of brimstone and looking for storage ideas for everything I’ve purchased thus far. Really like what you’ve come up withe here! I juts have a few questions.

    1) did you have to trim the metal sheets down using the really useful boxes? It looks like they fit in nearly perfectly in the photos.
    2) what size and strength mahlgnets did you use for the miniature bases, that website is a great resource, but it has a staggering amount of options. Size is relatively easy but how much magnet strength is too much/not enough I’m curious about.

    Appreciate any insight you might have and thanks for the wonderful post!

      Hey, glad you like it!

      1) I didn’t trim the sheets. Depending on the RUB size one of the flashing sheets fits perfectly across the entire box while for the larger blue ones I’m using two, they run the length, just need to be overlapped to cover the width. I’m switching out the hot glue for spray adhesive and am loving how that sets up. Even going to put 4 in the biggest box (not shown) for my tall models and other stuff. They were like .90 each at the local Home Depot.
      2) I’ll track them down. Just bought another batch a week or so ago and wish I’d kept the receipt for the range. I’ll ping back on here when I find it. They’re not super strong, just have had a couple of the thinner footing models pop off the base (not break) a time or two when pulling them out. Might have been old glue. I haven’t pinned any of my SOB figs to their bases.

        Awesome thank you! I picked up a box and some.metal the other day the magnets are all missing!

        Like missing missing or all you need now to do it? 🙂

        I’m glad you liked the article. I really am happy with them. I’m hoping I can fit the rest of the Minecart order in the ones I have now when it arrives. 😀
