X-Wing Miniatures Game Storage Solutions and Carrying Cases Reviewed

The following is a repost from the website.

I love the X-wing miniatures game by Fantasy Flight Games.  I love how you really only need a couple ships to play a great strategic game.  However, the game does come with a lot of dials, tokens, templates, and much more.  It is important to have all these bits of cardboard organized, not to mention keep you miniature safe, otherwise if your like me you'll be losing your mind trying to find where the heck you put that evade token. So below are some quick and easy solutions.

The Cheapest X-Wing Miniature Storage Solution

The Creative Options plastic compartment is durable, and allows you to configure it in just about anyway you want.  You can have a total of three slots or twenty eight.  Check out more about this great X-wing storage solution here.

  • 5 to 34 compartments
  • Great for tokens and miniatures

The above video by the Force Within TV channel gives an excellent review of the creative options case. It's very similar to the plano cases, but better in my opinion. Find it here, or simple watch it above.

Plano Carrying Case

Now I really enjoy using the Creative Options carry case above because it's cheap and effective,. However, as the amount of ships you own expands the cases need to expand.  Therefore you need somewhere to put the cases. The Creative Options Grab and Go organizes your smaller cases.  It comes with four cases.  One for your Imperials/First Order, One for the Scum and Villainy, and one for the super awesome Rebel Alliance! (No bias here). Plus you can have one case completely dedicated to your tokens and dials etc.  This miniatures storage solution can be found here.

    • Tons of room!
    • Great for a growing collection

Stanley Organiser X-Wing Storage

During my research I was reading an awesome post by some of the members over at Board Game Geek and came across what I think is the best X-wing miniatures storage solution.  One user had even kept all the plastic casing from the original miniature packages, and used that to help store the miniatures.  The key difference between the Stanley and Plano carrying cases is that the Stanley model has removable slots.  That means if you use a lot of focus tokens like I do, then you can remove the slot with the tokens and place them on the table.  I will be at some point moving on from my plano cases and picking up some of these Stanley carrying cases. I suggest you purchase both models with 25 and 10 compartments here.

  • You can buy a case with larger slots
  • 10 or 25 slots

X-wing Case

I'm a big fan of the guys over at Battlefoam, however I find that there shipping rates can get a little out of hand, and they can be a bit over priced.  Feldherr however offers free shipping on their carrying cases, and they come in generic professional looking cases. Like Battlefoam you can also find on their website special cut foam just for the X-wing miniatures game.

This is a perfect storage solution if you have all the ships, but otherwise you may just want to go with the pick and pluck or regular infantry slots for storage.  I did this for a long time with an old Games Workshop case, but found it was a little too big.  But I'm a competitive player that would usually only be playing with a select few ships, and so found carrying around my complete collection was a bit much. They do now have smaller micro cases now, so although they are a bit more expensive, be sure to check it out: To get free shipping on a Feldherr case click here.

  • Protects painted miniatures best
  • Various configurations, but 180 small ships for reference.

The Carrying Case Comparison

If your just getting started I'd suggest picking up the single Creative Options storage case above.  It's cheap and durable, and will allow you to
spend more money getting caught up on all the X-wing Expansions.  If you are a veteran I'd suggest going with the Stanley or Feldherr miniature carrying cases.


If you are tight for cash the single Plano storage case is the cheapest, but for just a few more dollars I'd pick the Stanley case.

Best Overall?

Unless you have painted miniatures, I believe the Stanley carry case with it's removable compartments makes for the best overall carrying case.  I'd suggest if your a painter that you'll want to invest in a proper miniatures case by Battlefoam or Feldherr.  Although I'd still suggest picking-up the Stanley case for all the tokens and bits.  Pick-up the Stanley X-wing storage case here.


Remember it's important to find the perfect X-wing miniatures storage solution, otherwise you'll end up with broken X-wings like I have!  I hope this overview help you make your decision, and until next time keep making time to improve your health and for the geeky things you love to do.  Stay healthy and stay geeky.
