So my KR multicase FINALLY came in today. Considering I ordered the thing the last week of February, I'm not too happy with the shipping time. I understand it's international shipping so that might be the main reason for the delay but I still find it hard to swallow to wait a month for a simple box with foam in it to arrive.
First off the price is right. $38.99 which includes shipping is pretty nice. The box I ordered (just the simple card stock one) had a tray for 6 Heavy Warjacks and 3 trays for small based Warmachine models (18 per tray).
Likes: I like how to foam is soft so it won't scuff up and rub off the paint on the models. It's also pretty pliable so I was easily able to fit a medium base model (The Butcher) into a spot meant for a small based model. Models with what I call "pointy stuff" like Doomreavers and Pikemen fit in pretty well too. The slots are deep enough to accommodate the "point stuff" so they don't protrude out to much and there's enough space in between slots to let the pikes that the Pikemen have sit on.
Dislikes: I really don't like the backing of the trays. It's just about as soft as the rest of the foam on the trays. Considering the vast majority of Warmachine models are metal, they are already starting to sag through the bottom. I don't know how long the backing is going to be able to hold up to the weight of these models. The other thing I didn't like was the tray for the Heavy Warjacks was waaay too big. I easily had about 4 inches of wasted depth in each slot I had to make by plucking foam. Granted I think it's deep enough to easily fit a Khador Gun Carriage but if someone is just lugging around jacks, there's a lot of wasted space.
So overall I don't know what to think. The smaller based stuff fits really nice but the wasted space for the Heavy Jacks isn't cool in my book. I also mortified of the backings of the trays falling apart sooner than later. It's a good price for a decent sized case that will easily tote a 35 to 50 point army but I don't see myself using it as my main means of transportation.
Stay tuned for a review of the Warmachine Battlefoam case I ordered. Hopefully that'll arrive before Adepticon.
