Shadespire Storage

Shadespire & Nighthaunt Storage Solutions That Are Cheap, Easy, and Effective

One of the things I love about Shadespire and Nighthaunt is that there’s only a few models. It makes it quick to paint up a warband, and also easy to carry around a few of them on gaming nights. So, what Shadespire and Nighthaunt storage solutions are there available to us gamers?

Shadespire & Nighthaunt Storage

Companies have been clambering to put out storage solutions for Shadespire since it released. The game has hit the hearts of many and been skyrocketing.

So, here’s the Shadespire storage I’ve come across, and if you’ve found any then please let me know in the comments and I’ll gladly add it to the list.

Oh, the list is alphabetical.

A-Case

A-Case offers magnetic miniature cases. While they offer a few different options, the one I recommend is the A-Case+.

The A-Case+ is the smallest case they offer, but while it’s the smallest, it has plenty of room for every Shadespire warband. There’s 4 trays for the case, and each tray fits around 28 models. So, room for everything out for Shadespire with some room to grow.

I won’t go into too much depth here because I have a more thorough review of the A-Case+ that’s worth checking out.

Battle Foam

No surprise that Battle Foam would have a lot of Shadespire options. I think they’ve got every game covered at this point.

Battle Foam offers trays for each Shadespire warband, a tray for accessories, and more. The variety of trays is impressive actually.

Foam + Shadespire Case

Battle Foam Ammo Box

Battle Foam also has a reasonably priced option with their Ammo Box bag that you could use for Shadespire. The bag comes stocked with pluck foam trays, so you can build them out as you need them.

The bag itself has a hard plastic interior to keep those trays safe.

The size of the bag is 19 x 9.5 x 12.5 inches. It has pockets for the game boards, rules, etc.

It comes with 12 inches of pluck foam trays. Each tray is 15.5 x 8 inches. The trays break down as:

  • 2 x 2 inch thick trays
  • 1 x 2.5 inch tray
  • 1 x 4 inch tray
  • 1 x Battle Foam medium toppers

Here’s a video showing off the bag.

This isn’t the cheapest option going, but anyone who buys Battle Foam won’t be surprised by that.

Another good option is the P.A.C.K. 352 case, which I’ve covered in my best Battle Foam cases article.

Chessex

Chessex makes small, light miniature storage boxes that work well with most warbands in Shadespire. In fact, WestRider, a fellow blogger friend, uses this.

There are a few sizes available.

You can go with the 14 slot storage box, which will get you a few warbands in there, or you can go up to 40 slots.

You can even find larger than that, but I can’t imagine you’d need a bigger one for Warhammer Underworlds.

Citadel/Games Workshop Nightvault Case

This is a very cool and clever case from Games Workshop.

First up, what GW had to say.

Transport everything you need for games of Warhammer Underworlds to and from your destination with this carry case. Constructed from rigid foam, it has been designed to be strong enough to keep your miniatures from being crushed, yet flexible enough to absorb the impact should you drop it.

Measuring 220x270mm, it’s easily large enough to hold several warbands in its 3 rows of channel foam, with enough space in the other side for 2 Warhammer Underworlds game boards, attack, defence and magic dice, and all the tokens used during games.

The case is secured with a zip which runs around its circumference.

So, the case comes with a foam insert for all the stuff you need for the game, and carries around a few warbands. It also looks very cool.

Now, the Nightvault case is not the cheapest option you’ll find here, but it’s a good looking option, and the price really isn’t terrible.

I think this is the perfect case for someone with a few warbands and wants an all-inclusive setup.

Citadel Skirmish Case

Citadel has a Skirmish Figure Case that they sell. It’s one of their more reasonably priced case options.

Anyway, the Skirmish case is a perfect fit for Shadespire. It allows you to store your warbands and the boards as well.

Actually, Games Workshop did a video showing exactly this.

Citadel Skirmish Figure Case

This may be one of the better priced storage options considering how much you can fit into it.

As you can see, the case is hard plastic, so great for travel.

The size of the case is 4.7 x 3.9 x 1.8 inches.

I also have a review of the Skirmish Case if you’re interested.

Dragon Shield

Keeping your cards safe is part of the game as well, pun intended.

Anyone who is a veteran of card games will already know of Dragon Shield. However, for someone like me who was new to this element of gaming, this might be some welcomed information.

Car sleeves are a protective plastic that you put your cards into. They’ll prevent scuffs, scratches, etc. They’ll also prevent the cards from general wear and tear.

I have tried a few card sleeves since getting into Warhammer Underworlds and I have found Dragon Shield to be the best of them. They are also some of the most expensive card sleeves you’ll find but they’re worth it.

Feldherr

I only recently discovered this company, though many Europeans are probably aware of them. Feldherr offers quite a few foam options for various games, including Shadespire.

I’ve linked out to Feldherr’s offerings on Amazon, however, if you’re in Europe then you’re probably better off buying direct from them. For those in the US, the Amazon site is the cheaper option.

Shadespire Tray

Feldherr offers a tray for each of the Shadespire warbands. The slots for the warband are laser cut, and there’s room for tokens and your deck as well.

The size of the Shadespire tray is around 10.8 x 6.8 x 1.6 inches. I say around only because the tray for each warband varies a bit, though mostly in thickness.

I actually own two of these, soon to be more, for my Bloodreavers and Orruks.

As you can see, these trays fit all the stuff you need for a game.

I love this for tournaments because I can just place my boards on top of this, or this on the boards, and I’ve got everything I need. It makes it so easy to pickup and setup for the next game.

Being that these trays aren’t that big either, you aren’t taking up any real extra table space either.

I highly recommend these trays.

The other cool thing that Feldherr offers is a magnetic case to store the custom Shadespire trays in.

You can actually buy it as a bundle to get a tray with the box, which isn’t a bad deal. You’re also able to buy this on its own if you already own some Shadespire trays.

Shadespire Box

Like many companies out there, Feldherr has a Shadespire box tray. Meaning, this fits right into the starter set, the actual Shadespire box, making life very easy.

The tray fits both starter warbands (Steelheart’s Champions & Garrek’s Reavers), as well as all the tokens, dice, and both objective & power decks.

The size of the tray is 11.5 x 8.6 x 2 inches, which fits perfectly into the Shadespire box.

For the price, this is a great solution, especially if you just got into the game.

There’s a lot more to choose from too. Check out my article on Feldherr cases for more options.

Plano

Now, if you’re just after something to store tokens in, then I’ve got you covered there also.

Plano makes various storage boxes, typically used by those who fish and hunt to store lures and such. However, they are also perfect for tokens and other assorted bits for games as well.

Those who play a lot of board games are probably already familiar with Plano.

There’s a box that Plano makes that’s PERFECT for Shadespire, it’s the 3400 medium model (guess you call it model?). It measures 8.25 x 4.5 x 2.38 inches. So, it’s small enough to fit into your bag and hold everything you need.

Plano 3400 Medium

Here it is opened up showing the dividers that come with it. Also, the beauty of this one is that it’s double-sided. So, it saves space and has plenty of room.

Plano Ready to Use

Now, here’s some shots showing all my objectives, tokens, and dice in it with room to spare.

It’s really affordable too. I got mine at Walmart, but you can also find it on Amazon as well.

Prime Time Foam

Speaking of, there’s also some assorted pluck and pull tray options available as well. They tend to be a bit cheaper than the laser cut trays and do the trick just as well.

Prime Time Foam has a 2″ tray, which by my measurements, should work for all of the current Shadespire warbands. You may want to double check yourself, and they do also offer a 3″ tray as well.

The trays are 7.5″ x 13″, so they’ll fit in the standard sized bags offered by Sabol and the like.

Speaking of, Prime Time Foam does also offer their own bag as well, which of course will fit their pluck and pull trays.

Reaper Miniatures

If you want something small and affordable, then you can’t go wrong with this case from Reaper Miniatures.

The case is only 10.5 x 9.5 x 3 inches in size and offers an eggshell foam interior, like a gun case, to store your miniatures.

Considering Shadespire doesn’t have very large warbands, you might find this super affordable solution is just what you need.

Ultra Pro

Going back to cards for a moment, Ultra Pro has some great 9-pockets protector pages for binders. You’ll quickly learn in Underworlds that you’re going to have a lot of cards. So, having a binder to put them in is ideal.

I’m using the Platinum Series pages from Ultra Pro and they’ve been great. When it comes to protecting my stuff I don’t mess around, so I went straight for this line.

You can get the Silver Series pages for a little less and they’re still high-quality pages.

Conclusion

There really is no shortage of Shadespire storage solutions out there. I imagine we’ll see more and more options pop-up over time as well since this game isn’t going anywhere.

Also, I have another article on magnetic cases that would work very well for Shadespire. They are expensive, but they’re awesome if you really want to show off your army.

If you’re on the fence about picking up Shadespire, then check out my review and explanation of the game on my other blog.

Chessex has a 14 slot case that I use a lot for Shadespire. Doesn’t work for all of the Warbands (can’t fit Riptooth, for example), but it can hold pretty much any other two Warbands.

I’ve also got a GW one that’s slightly larger (I think it’s half the size of the Nightvault case), and is very good if you’re set for storing your boards and cards and tokens and all, and just need something for the minis.
