LaserCutCard helps with logistics in your minis games with supplying shipping containers. So your little mans can ship items from battlefield to battlefield. Or they can fight around them. Either works.

From the announcement:

LaserCutCard is selling value packs of its shipping containers. These are intended for tabletop scenery for games like Infinity or WH40k. If you buy 6 containers you save 20%. Six containers cost $20 and postage is $4.71 world wide.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Wow, this looks like an exceptionally sweet deal and the containers look very nice too!

  • I’m liking the look of this very nice, how would you paint it though? would it take a normal undercoat spray or even an army painter colour?

      A few posts down the manufacturer addresses this but I will say as an artist that works with all kinds of mediums, if you are too heavy handed with the medium, it will warp regardless of layering unless it’s got a laminate that isn’t mentioned (even then the can still warp on occasion). Apply in thin coats as you would with a mini (allowing drying time) and you should be okay though.

  • It’s wood so it should paint normally. Prime, base coat and paint.

      It’s not wood, the description says cardboard and the title says laser cut card.. so I imagine it’s thick cardstock.

    Wow, darned good looking and cheap!

  • They look cool. A little worried about them being made from cardboard, but I ordered the bundle of six along with the site office. We’ll see.

    The containers are made from heavy duty 1mm card, which is layered in 3 layers.
    They take paint very well – I normally give them an undercoat of cheap spray paint (matt white or matt black) from the hardware store and then paint them with normal hobby paints. The cardboard layering prevents warping. I would recommend superglue to assemble them.

    Cheap and pretty…music to the gamer’s ears. Great job on these, looking to get a couple sets this Friday (payday!!).

    Those look great and are very affordable. Well done LaserCutCard.
