Review : KR Multicase Aquilla4 carry case

I thought I’d share a quick review of the KR Multicase Aquilla4. I’m the kind of person that enjoys..more likely needs..to have everything organised. I also like to have things that perform their function really well. The Aquilla4 satisfies me on both counts.

I’ve used it for the last few weeks to take 2 full Blood Bowl teams, plus all the rules, dice, tokens, roster sheets, board and templates along to the gaming club. You can get KR cases in many configurations of case and foam, but I opted for the Blood Bowl Set F foam configuration which means I can safely carry around up to 65 minis. The set comes as two foam trays of 25 cutouts plus one that can be used to carry 15 big guys. So far I have opted to leave the big guys section at home and flatten out the two other sections. This means that I can then get all of my dice etc into the case while allowing enough give in the side pocket to carry the pitch and dugouts. The side pocket does take the pitch but it is a tight fit and I don’t recommend keeping it in there for longer than you need to as it does bend it a tiny bit, which is enough for it not to lay out flat on a table.

It’s just over £30 depending on where you get it but I think if you are going to be regularly carrying your pride and joy to games then it’s a sound investment.

Displaying my 28mm miniatures

Now that the man/hobby cave is finished, I finally have some space to spread my hobby wings.

I’ve not got much room in there and certainly not enough for a large display case, but still I think it would be nice to show off some of the finished minis. A lot of my unpainted, unused, collection of minis are in boxes with the finished team and the next two in line for painting in foam. As I complete more teams I want to be able to keep a few either on the desk or on the shelves, without getting covered in dust.

I took a look on Amazon for display cases and came across these. As they are only £4.50 I thought they were worth a go and so got two. They arrived earlier this week and I’m quite impressed. The quality is really good and they take 15 miniatures comfortably. At L20.5cm x D10cm x H10.5cm, the figures are quite low in the case so I’m going to build something to raise them up into two or three levels. I’m thinking I’ll make something out of lollipop sticks, paint it up and make a kind of wooden stand to show them off.

They’ll look really nice on the shelves and looking at them all the time will make me want to play with them more 🙂
