Default Alternate storage solutions

Has any one come up with any alternate storage solutions the make the designers edition easier to transport? I want to start playing again but trying to transport that giant sized box is real pain

Considering the size, I'd suggest a rolling toolbox

Rolling toolboxes have worked well for my Ogre miniatures collection...

What storage containers are you using inside that big rolling box?

When I have the money, I'm investing in these:

Really Useful Boxes
http://www.reallyusefulproducts.co.u...lrange_rub.php

84 Litre Box-33.50
(Holds 8 of the 6 compartment or 16 compartment trays).
http://www.reallyusefulproducts.co.u...b84_0litre.php

16 Compartment Tray-7.33
http://www.reallyusefulproducts.co.u...rayLarge16.php

6 Compartment Tray-7.33
http://www.reallyusefulproducts.co.u...rayLarge06.php

I'll need the following:

x3 84 Litre Boxes. 1 for COMBINE, 1 for PANEUROPE, 1 for Terrain Overlays, Generic OGREs, Structures, Buildings, Trains, ect.

x18 16 Compartment Trays, x6 6 Compartment Trays.

These will provide storage/carry capacity for all the OGRE Chipboard stuff (OGRE DE, Sponsor Sheets, 6th Edition), with plenty of room to grow (Reinforcements, ect, and the plastic units). The nice thing about the Trays is all the OGREs fit sitting normally because the height is such that the towers have plenty of overhead space.

So, that's a price tag of around: 276.42 not including Shipping and Handling. Totally worth it.
33.50 x 3 = 100.50 / 7.33 x 18 = 131.94 / 7.33 x 6 = 43.98 = 276.42 Total

I also use the Really Useful Box .55 Litre for grease Pencils and OGRE Dice.

I'll post some images when I have these and all my OGRE goodies sorted and stored in them.

I used two thin foam layers in the tops and bottoms, and then sandwiched miniatures between them.
