Introducing KR Multicase’s Foam Storage Solution

To be honest many of you have probably already heard of KR Multicase, but it seems like most people may be confused by it’s obviously different take on foam figure storage.

Well KR Multicase is different, and sometimes different is good.  
KR bases their storage cases on the simple principle of redundant structural reinforcement.  
Figures are placed into super soft foam (that doesn’t scrape paint or break figures as they move about during transport), which is then inserted inside a hard dense card case that forms the strength of the system.  
These card cases can then be placed into a variety of bags, also offered by KR, that act as both a sensible mode of transportation and additional structural support for the storage system altogether. 
You see the true beauty of this system is that you can store all of your armies separately in these dense card cases (horizontally or vertically I might add), and then transport whatever case(s) you may need for the day via any of the KR bags or backpacks that you own. 
So just one bag could transport any one of the armies you own! Which saves you a ton of cash to spend on other things… like more miniatures!
Best of all, they have hundreds of tray sets to choose from! Obviously as a retailer we can’t carry all of them, but we do have a great selection of the top selling tray sets and cases available for sale in our webstore (which saves a bit from ordering from England).
I really do believe in these cases, as the design and execution is flawless. The level of protection offered at such a low price point compared to other cases (which you have to buy needless multiples of) speaks for itself. 
And for those of you who have ever seen what happens when you leave a figure case on top of a car and drive away, don’t fear the reaper. KR has you covered there too.

We’re now pre-selling our first shipment of KR Multicases, which should be here sometime in April. Checkout our KR Multicase Section for more details. -May the dice be with you MBG

The KR System from KR Mulicase’s site

Basics

The KR system is based around the philosophy of “soft foam for figures, hard cases for soft foam”. Other transport systems for miniature figures use hard foam and hard tray bases as they use a soft bag system and need the trays to strong enough to stack in tall piles, and additionally require that the trays are always horizontal as the figures need to have space between them and the hard base of the tray above. 

The hard foam and tray base is not good for figure protection, hence we designed a system where the figures are protected in soft foam. This soft high tensile foam cares much better for your figures as it does not damage the paint finish, and you can fit a larger figure in a smaller compartment as the foam has enough natural flexibility to deform around the figure and support it. This means that the case can be carried or stored in any orientation (flat, side on, even upside down!) because the tray bases in KR trays are the same foam as the tray itself, so your figures have full protection. 
This enabled us to design a hard case system so that the trays would be supported, and this in turn created the unique and versatile KR system of interchangeable card cases within a transport bag. All the cases in the KR range are based on our standard size case, we call that 1 KRU (KR Unit), which can carry up to 200 28mm troops or a combination or troops and vehicles etc. All the KR cases are combinations of this standard size of case, for example the double aluminium carries the contents of 2 , the triple 3 and so on. Likewise the Kaiser transport bag system carries multiples of the card cases, the Kaiser2 carrying two of them, the Kaiser3 three of them and so on. Similarly the Backpack1 carries one card case, and the Backpack2, two card cases. 
The card cases are interchangeable with each other. You can have a stack of card cases keeping your figures safe, and just take the army you need in the Kaiser or Backpack when going out.

Which trays suit me best?

There are 2 main tray categories – Core or Custom. The core trays are a combination of pre-cut troop trays or precut segmented pick&pluck trays. Combinations of these trays form a versatile solution to carrying varying collections of vehicles and troops. The custom trays are cut for specific figures and vehicles and are the perfect option for many armies.

Card KR Multicase

 

The standard and the half size card KR Multicase form the basis of a unique and versatile transport system for your army. The interchangeable system means that when used in combination with the large range of transport bags and cases from KR that your collection is kept safe.

Expansion or changes to additional or multiple armies is a simple and efficient process as you only need to purchase more of the card KR Multicases! The case is made from solid KLC heavy duty dense card, the same as is used for commercial archiving of documents. It is not made from cheaper and inferior corrugated card as this just is not up to the job. It is very durable and incredibly protective.

The wrap around lid provides all round protection and the injection moulded plastic handle forms the snaplock for the KR Multicase to provide a securely closed case the instant it is closed. This ensures the contents are safe from spilling out and can be transported with ease.

The card cases external sizes are:

Standard card case (KRM) -:- 400 x 270 x 120mm
Half size card case (KRH) -:- 270 x 205 x 120mm

Kaiser transport bag system

The Kaiser transport bag system means an economical and safe system for carrying multiples of the standard card cases. The Kaiser1 carries one of them, the Kaiser2 two of them, the Kaiser3 three of them, and the Kaiser4 four of them. Of course you can vary this using the half width card cases as suits your needs – a half width card case fits neatly into the space of one standard card case.

The card cases are interchangeable with each other, so you can select the army you need from a stack of card cases keeping your figures safe, and just take the army you need in the Kaiser when going out. By having one transport bag with interchangeable cases it means that your army expansion is much more economical as you only need additional card cases for your army and swap them over when you need to take them out – a true storage and transport system!

The Kaiser transport bags are manufactured form heavy duty waterproof fabric and are fully lined. They have carry handles and adjustable shoulder straps plus internal reinforcements on all sides, which in combination with the card cases inside makes them the strongest and most protective cases system for your miniatures. The external pockets have enough room for all your rulebooks and accessories. The Kaiser2, 3 and 4 all have a dedicated pocket for the KR accessory case and one for the tournament tray too.

Kaiser1 (K1) -:- 430 x 330 x 160mm
Kaiser2 (K2) -:- 430 x 330 x 290mm

Backpacks

The versatile backpack system from KR means that you can carry up to 2 of the standard card cases with ease. Of course you can vary this using the half sze card cases as suits your needs – a half size card case fits neatly into the space of one standard card case. The card cases are interchangeable with each other, so you can select the army you need from a stack of card cases keeping your figures safe, and just take the army you need in the KR Backpack when going out.

By having one transport bag with interchangeable cases it means that your army expansion is much more economical as you only need additional card cases for your army and swap them over when you need to take them out – a true storage and transport system!

The additional front and side pockets give you plenty of room for rulebooks, accessories and even drinks and sandwiches. And of course if you are not needing it for gaming you can simply use it as a regular backpack!

These all have snap closing lockable catches, either with a key or a combination latch, a carry handle, a fully adjustable shoulder strap, a self adhesive label holder and are stackable. The feet match into the recessed aluminium outer panel to prevent one case from sliding off another when stacked on top of one another.

The interior is fully lined with a soft touch lining, so if you decide to carry anything loose then it is well cared for too. The case can be labelled as the exterior is smooth aluminium, so you can easily stick army descriptions, or pictures to them.
