I'm looking for a cost effective case to house my expanding army. Any brands or types that are better than others? How does everyone carry their armies around?

I have been happy with my Reaper case that I got a couple of months ago. The sell them at Scifi City for the same price as you can order them online, and they are cheaper than the Army Transport cases with pretty much the same functionality.

But the GW ones can withstand being thrown out of a car window going 45 mph and nothing inside will break.

It depends on how tight your time is. The cheapest solution is a plastic tub from Walmart, thin corrigated cardboard, tacky glue, and foam bits or a sheet.

Personally I do not throw out the little bits (tabs/chads?) of foam from transport cases, in fact have been collecting them from other people since the mid 90s. Good material that for terrain too.

The reaper cases are good i like how they open up front, but the Sabol cases seem to have more carrying options with the pockets for dice and tape meaure, and the pockets for books and paper... I have also only seen one size bag for the reaper stuff do they have others?
Sabol is slightly Larger and slightly more expensive... but check the other sizes available too!
