About Mini-Soft Transports
Mini-Soft Transports came to being back in 2007 when I was looking for better value storage and transport for my Warhammer armies. I was a poor university student at the time and a member of the now non-existent WargamerAU web forums. After looking at various options, I created a post looking to crowdfund the first production run of standard infantry trays. I didn't know if it would get much support. Forum members eagerly backed the concept and raised the required number of pre-orders in under a week. On the day the first shipment arrived 50% were pre-allocated, the remainder sold out in the following 48hrs, and I still had an inbox full of people asking for more trays. I was living at home at the time and my parents were happy that their garage had only been briefly full of boxes of foam. I then told them I was placing another order straight away. From there I've gone into different sized trays but Mini-Soft has largely remained a hobby which funds my own hobby. However as Warhammer 40k in particular seems to be going from strength to strength I thought it was time to see if I could expand to become a viable business. I still believe it's one of the best value miniature transport solutions available and has room to become even better.
Why are Mini-Soft transports better value?
Each foam tray, or set of trays designed by Mini-Soft fits into a readily available aluminium tool case. These cases can be purchased from Super Cheap Auto for approximately $50. You simply discard the internal dividers that come with the case and replace it with the appropriately sized Mini-Soft foam trays for your army. This case is far more solid than a plastic or fabric alternative.
Larger Foam trays!
Each tray is 440mm x 310mm and come in a variety of thickness'. This is almost twice the size of other brands foam trays meaning you can fit in up to twice as many models per tray!
Australian Owned, Designed and Manufactured:
Mini-Soft is an entirely Australian owned business, all trays were designed here and are manufactured in Victoria.
