Portable Warfare Miniature Bag

So having just recently gotten into Dust Warfare from Fantasy Flight games and with the fact I am going to Gen Con this year to play in the Dust Warfare Tournament, I was looking for a new bag to tote my miniatures around in.  Then I remembered I had gotten and done a review on a product from a company called "Portable Warfare" and had liked the bag, but had since sold off the miniatures I originally had in the case.

I pulled the bag out, dusted it off and found that it is perfect for hauling my Dust miniatures around in and thought I would re-visit this great product.  The bag is called "The Sergeant" and I assume this will be to designate it from later products.

First, the bag measures 11" Deep [including front pockets] x 14" Wide and 12" Tall.  It has a secure and strong shoulder strap that can be removed and can be used to link more than one bag together [one on top of the other].  It has lots of pouches and pockets that hold all the dice, tape measures and other bits and bobs you may need to bring along.

The trays are what make it quite unique, in that they are made with a stiffer blue colored foam on the bottom of the tray that not only holds the tray together, but doesn't bend like some other trays I have tried.  The trays do not come with a custom design option, but have a really good set of pluck foam that can be made to fit any size you need.  The company makes trays in a 1", 1.5", 2", 2.5", 3" and 4" thickness that are 7.5" x 13".  As you can see from the photos, I have fit a lot of figures and even my Medium Walkers into these trays and have not even used one of my 1.5"" and one of the 1" trays.  This means I have a space for up to 32 more infantry and even have the room for one more light walker.  Now, I may need to order some new trays for my SSU figures, but I am good with that as the company offers tray individually as well as a few configurations when you buy the bag.  The bag comes in Gun Metal Grey, Army Green, Chaos Pink and Tactical Orange!

They have also started making a new product called "The APC " which is a low cost miniature storage solution, that is customizable and easy to store.

You can reach the company at the Portable Warfare website.

Pinnacle Entertainment announces New Deadlands Noir!

New Orleans, 1935. Whoever called this the Big Easy sure got that one wrong. Things are tough all over. Honest work is hard to find, and even dishonest jobs are getting scarce. The one thing that’s not in short supply is trouble. From shady thugs to crooked cops to Mafia soldiers, there’s plenty of characters out there looking to give an honest Joe a hard time.
And that’s not the worst of it.

There are stories going round about things that go bump in the night. Things you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley on a darker night. And those stories aren’t just coming from rummies or saps who read that Epitaph rag.

Still, there are a few heroes left in the concrete jungle. Steely-eyed private dicks, fast-talking grifters, wild-eyed inventors, and shadowy houngans still struggle against the encroaching darkness. With enough moxie—and more than a little luck—they might just be enough to turn the tide.

Deadlands: Noir is set in the world of Pinnacle Entertainment’s award-winning Deadlands universe. It includes new Edges, Hindrances, and powers, as well as new rules for handling detective work, the state of the Union and the CSA in the Depression-era, a complete Plot Point campaign, and of course, more monsters and ghouls than you can shake a smoking .45 automatic at.
