Miniature Base Size Checklist

Be sure to print out our Miniature Base Size Checklist from the Size Guide to check and see if your miniatures base will fit our Layout Layers. 

As long as you can see the printed black line around the edge of your miniatures base, you are set!  We have built in tolerances that allow for some wiggle room. 

If your model completely covers the black line, it may be very tight, or not fit our Layout Layers.

Great trays

These trays are excellent for organization and extra security. My Horus Heresy armies are always feeling safe when being transported to fight for the Emperor or for Horus.

You need these

Honestly. If you're buying a crystal fortress, you need the layout layers. I will note, when I was figuring out which size to get, I was afraid that the hole in the layout would need to be larger than the base size, but i have a 32mm base that can go into and out of the 32mm layout layer smoothly and easily.

Love it absolutely, 32mm next to my 25mm looks amazing and allowing my army to group it cool.

All the plaguebearers!

Perfect for holding all my plaguebearers!

great fit...

Allows my models to sit perfectly in the humpback and the holes are spot on. I added the optional magnets but even without them I think everything might stay in place so long as I am not rolling my case around.

I was drawn to Crystal Fortress some years back when they were just getting started because they provided clean looking products, and this remains true today. In the case of the layout layer, it was exactly as I had expected. The protective adhesive came off with relative ease. I preferred a little bit of difficulty getting the adhesive off because it was a sign of determination to ensure the product arrived free of scratches despite all odds. All my minis fit neatly in the designated slots. I'm very eager to order up the magnetic strip and magnets soon to ensure everything remains stable!

Perfect for 40k miniatures

These fit into the cases lile a dream, and make it possible for me to transport the infantry. Perfect for things like the new Necron Warriors, and Primaris troops. You can fit 4 squads of 5 men, or 2 squads of ten, or mix in a complete mix and match. They are surprisingly durable and they make the cases look so much better by being able to organise your miniatures. Also, after lots of shopping around I haven't seen anything like this before.
