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 for Armada Squadrons

I was looking for a way to store and display my Star Wars Armada fleets. The 40mm holes only have a little bit of wiggle room, and my ships look great!

Please send us pictures! We want to see Armada in our cases!!!

High Quality and Perfect for Big Infantry

The 10-man 40mm layout layer is perfect if you play an army with a lot of big infantry like Custodes, where almost everyone is on a 40mm base. The plastic is high quality and the cutouts hold the models well. You should really use magnets for actual security, but all the bases fitting well without huge gaps between them and the layout layer is great from an aesthetic standpoint. I’m not 100% sure what I’m going to do with the two 32mm spots given the army this is for, but I’m not going to complain about their presence and I’m sure there’s a clear use for them for other people.

Great layout

Got this layout for Ork War boss and Meganobz. And fits them amazingly! I did magnetize their arms to swap out weapons as needed but with the right set up there shouldn't be a problem if the arms are on

The bow that ties the case together

This layout layer is perfect for players of Warhammer 40k, especially Space Marines and the newer Primaris units with 40mm bases like Bladeguard, Aggressors, and Inceptors. They fit perfectly in the holes, and there is also room for two ancilliary 32mm characters. Made well, fits in the cases like a glove. Would definately recommend.

Holds Rohan nicely!

I got it to hold my Rohan army and it displays them beautifully. if you have any mounted Lord of the Rings armies i highly recommend!
