Battle Foam Boot Camp

You want to buy Battle Foam, you need to buy Battle Foam, but you don’t know where to start! Our Battle Foam Boot Camp is here to help. While it may be difficult for us to tell you exactly what you need, we can help you get started.

The first thing you need to do is compile a list of models you want to protect. If you have a lot, we suggest dividing them into groups. Types of groups may vary depending on your needs; do you have them split up by factions, games, tournaments, friendly games?

Once you’ve established your list of models, you can start shopping! The Battle Foam website is broken down into three main categories.

The first category is Shop by Game. If you are new to Battle Foam, this may be the best place to start. Shopping here will help narrow down the list of products you may be looking for. Once you find the game category for the models you need to protect, you can see all the pre-designed trays we have available specific to that game.

The second is Shop by Company. This will be helpful if you have several games by the same company. Once you select a company, the subcategories will look like Shop by Game.

The third option is to shop by Foam Trays. This category lists all the different foam tray sizes we have available. It breaks down each game and/or faction’s tray options once you select the size you need. There is also the option to search other specific needs, such as hobby, pluck, troop, kits, etc.

Once you’ve shopped our pre-designed trays, check back over you list of models. Have you found a home for all of them? If no, then head over to our Custom Tray Creator®. Once you’ve answered all the questions on this tool, it can help you finalize your bag selection and foam tray options.  

The final step is to determine which bag you need. To do this, you need to add up the total height in inches of foam you have picked out. Remember to add a 1/4 inch to each tray to allow room for the bottoms. So, for example, a 4-inch tray will take up 4.25 inches in the bag. Once this number has been determined, you go through our category of bags and find the one that holds your foam trays. The total amount of inches each bag can hold will be in the first paragraph of the description.

Hopefully, this short boot camp will help you get started shopping. If you need help with anything or have questions, please call or email us. We are here to help protect your army!
