So today, after getting annoyed at my cardboard/tissue paper storage method for the last time, I purchased a half infantry/half pluck foam case. Now I am trying to decide what to do with the pluck foam. Anyone have any advice?
At the moment it will need to hold 2 manticores, a demolisher, 2 sentinels, 4 HWTs and a few objectives. I am thinking about "plucking" out shapes for 3 chimeras, 3 russes and then using the spare foam to pad out the unused tank shapes to hold the random models. I don't want to make it so that it holds what I listed perfectly, as I may want to change my list at some point.
I know some people have recommended that I leave the walls between sections as 2 squares wide, as this will make the whole thing a lot more rigid. I will need to test if this limits the capacity too much though.

I recently got one, only way I could figure out for 2 russes and 2 chimeras involved single thickness walls. It does feel flimsy, but I can't figure out any other way to fit them! If you do, please share...

So, the planning stage is pretty much done. I reckon about 5 chimera/russ sized models, although I will probably only use up three. I decided to leave out space for sponsons, as I rarely use them. I'll post a diagram of what I did when I'm finished.

Ok, so here is a rough picture of how I ended up doing it:
Each red 'square' is a piece of foam I left in. The two blue shapes are little foam blocks that can be removed to make those sections big enough for russes. I may change the layout slightly if I think it is needed, using PVA (thanks Chem) to fix things.
4x6 is big enough to hold a russ or chimera. 4x5 can hold a sentinel and a turret or some HWTs. The small bit is for objectives.
I left the majority of the walls two pieces wide, to give the whole thing a bit more stability.
