This is now the sixth box I've made to store and transport my minis, and it's a surprisingly easy process.

Materials and tools:

  • Sterilite storage boxes, 8.5"x11" interior size. The box in the image is 3" deep, but if you have larger models, Sterilite also makes 6" deep boxes with the same footprint. Right now, the 3" boxes are $24 for two on Amazon.

  • 22ga steel sheet. I also got this from Amazon, where it was $10 for enough steel to make two of these, plus a bit (but not quite enough for a third) left over.

  • Something to cut the steel sheet to shape. I used a Dremel with cutoff wheel, but tin snips will work too.

  • A hand riveter, and your choice of rivets. I used 1/8" by 1/4".

  • Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for A handheld drill, Dremel, or drill press, with a drill bit of the same size as the rivets.

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Putting it together:

Step 1: Cut the steel sheet to 9" by 11" by whatever means is most convenient to you. I hit mine with a steel file to smooth out the edges, but that's optional.

Step 2: Place the steel sheet in the box and center it. There should be a small gap on each side. Use the drill to put a hole in each corner, about a quarter inch from either edge, going through both the sheet and the box. After drilling each hole, insert a rivet from the top to keep the sheet aligned.

Step 3: Use the hand riveter to emplace the rivets. This should hold the sheet tightly to the plastic bin.

That's it for the box. Now all you have to do is magnetize your models. For my infantry, I stick a small blob of putty to the underside of the base, push a 3mm x 2mm neodymium magnet into the putty, and then press the base down onto a flat surface. For larger bases I use a 5mm x 2mm magnet, and for vehicles I use a pin vise to drill holes in the treads and install the 3mm magnets. By using neodymium magnets, rather than using magnetic sheet either on the tray or the models' bases, virtually any model can be secured to the tray, and the strength of adhesion can be controlled simply by adjusting how many magnets are used.

This tray can hold around 80 figures on 25mm bases, is much smaller than a foam case of comparable size, is easy to deploy models directly from, and can be used both for transport to games and storage at home.

If you already have a drill and way to cut the steel, then two boxes and a sheet of steel is $34, for $17 apiece. If you need a riveter and tin snips, I got mine for $12 and $8 respectively, raising the cost to $54 for two boxes ($27 per). I wouldn't advise buying a drill press just for this, but if you at least have a way to put holes in metal then the start-up costs are minimal.

Thanks for reading!

Careful cutting the sheet metal. I cut myself pretty good on the edges.

Absolutely a good tip, sheet metal can be sharp. As I said in the writeup I use a steel file to deburr after cutting.

This looks way better than my $5 Walmart covered cake pans.

How does this work with magnetized arms? Do they fall off and stick to the metal bottom or stay on fine?

If they're effectively attached to the model, they'll stay on- the steel sheet being there won't pull them off the models, if that's what you're for 1 last update 2020/05/28 asking.If they're effectively attached to the model, they'll stay on- the steel sheet being there won't pull them off the models, if that's what you're asking.

I decided earlier today to do the exact same thing. I bought some thin sheet metal the other day to magnetize some terrain, but decided it wasn鈥檛 going to work the way I wanted so I鈥檒l be using it to make a transport box. I don鈥檛 think I鈥檒l use rivets but will likely just use glue.

Been thinking about doing something like this, but I never though to just use a cheap plastic container. Nice idea.

Nice! I produced a similar thing for my minis, using some cheap magnetic whiteboards from my local shop for the metal part. The only thing I did that was different was have the metal part be in the lid as it's a little easier to access smaller minis around the edges

I magnetze all of my minis now after breaking way to many swords in the foam crap

My old boss did something similar with large sheet magnet and metal washers glued under the bases of a model.
