I bought my second crystal fortress and will probably get 3. This is a pretty good display case. It is about an hour's work to assemble but not difficult. Keeps the dust off and provides protection for keeping your minis upright and un-damaged during transport. Would/will buy again
I have large collections of Warhammer 40,000, Warmachine, Blood Bowl, Reaper, Cool Mini or Not, and more. Before this product, I kept most of my stuff in Army Transport Foam and Citadel Carrying Cases. I tried IKEA display cases, but dust was a huge problem, and having everything in opaque storage containers, a huge pain. This product is THE solution I was looking for. I keep everything neatly organized, on display, and I couldn’t be happier (maybe if the price was lower, but I suppose you can’t have everything). I couldn’t recommend this product enough, and recommend it at all the events I attend. Plastic, pewter, tanks, huge figurines, etc. It works for every miniature product you can think of.
For table top wargamers, storage and transportation of miniatures are topics of paramount importance. Many of us have faced disasterous sightings when we have opened our "cutting edge" foams, containers etc during our regular visits to local hobby shops. And that sort of thing would at least ruin your day if not your enthusiasm for the hobby, because seeing your hours of hard work lying around broken, chipped, missing a limb would surely make you upset. And you will always have hesitations before you get together your models for transporting. The same to a lesser extent is also true for storing.
You want your storage/transporter to be dependable and sturdy. Well, these guys produce that kind of stuff. It is both elegant and solid. I have not come across this kind of product before - and believe me I have tried everything from home made containers to custom made foam trays. None of them would offer the protection and ease of storage/transportation the crystal fortress gives. And it makes a perfect display case for your miniatures while storing them.
As a final note, I am living in Turkey and yes the shipping costs and custom fees may be higher than other storage/transportation options but when you get your hands on a crystal fortress product and actually start to use it, you will see it is worth every penny.
Very highly recommended.
Really can't say much that others haven't. I'll be getting nearly a dozen of these as I'm able, it's the best storage option I've seen since I started tabletop hobbies ten years ago. Mirroring the feeling that it's extremely pricey for a build-it-yourself acrylic case of this size though.
I've recently got a 1 inch Pod Pack. I really enjoy the possibility to change the dividers out and to adjust the customizable trays to your needs, depending on the amount and shape of the tokens or the dices of your board game. I definitely recommend them !
