Battle Foam releases foam trays for Sea Fleet games.

From their announcement:

The Sea Fleet Foam Trays are designed to work with the new Dread Fleet board game. Both trays will fit the entire content of the box and will allow for easy fit inside your official game box or your Battle Foam case. The 1st tray will hold all 10 ships included in the game and the large island terrain piece. The 2nd tray will hold the remainder of the terrain pieces along with game cards, dice, measuring markers, and small game pieces.

    Damn, as much as I dislike Battlefoam for their practices in diplomacy, after playing Dreadfleet this weekend, the game really needs this, I guess I’ll bite this time around.

    I am doing magnets and a toolbox–worked fine and it cost very little.

    I’m with Repeter … I think magnets are a better option. A box, a small sheet of metal and some magnets … cheaper and more versatile than a piece of over priced foam.

  • MadNes

    Perfect. I was hoping they would make this.

  • While the magnet and toolbox approach is a simple one, the foam does have the benefit of being able to store your entire game in its original box.

    • Repeter

      This is, admittedly, a cool option…still, lordofexcess and I are going to be buying moar cool minis with the money saved…

    Will be buying this. The Space Hulk foam trays were a hit out the park. I expect these will be as well. Having everything in the original box makes storage/transport much easier for me.

  • Repeter

    So I keep thinking about this product, because for some reason it seems cool that it can all fit in the regular box. Then I imagine those fragile little sails and my ape-like hands trying to get the boats out of the foam…I think I’ll stick to my magnets and toolbox (its got cool stickers on it…).

    Perhaps Battlefoam can release a line of Battlemagnets? C’mon, it’s not too bad an idea.

  • MadNes

    I think magnets will work well because of the large rectangular bases under the relatively light plastic .

    But when I factor in the extra time and effort of addding magnets to ALL THAT PLASTIC, plus the giant craters Chicago calls potholes… foam is a better solution for me. Especially since I plan to take my time to paint these up as well as I can.

    Tempting… esp. for the copy I am hoping to paint up for my brother-in-law for Christmas.
