STOCK LEVEL UPDATE

The Captain miniature storage bag from Portable WarfareDespite the infrequent updates here on the site, it has been busy at Portable Warfare. I know the stock levels are very low at the moment and it has taken a bit longer than expected to get some things lined up, but please know that we are working hard at launching a new Kickstarter for a new larger bag called The Captain. When that finishes, we will be restocking The Sergeant colors as well. In addition, I have been working on a new updated web site, which I hope to have launched soon. Take a first look at the new Captain bag which is a double version of the Sergeant.

RESTOCKS FOR NEXT YEAR

RECON BLACK IS OUT OF STOCK

The new Recon Black Sergeants proved to be very popular and we are now currently out of stock. It may still be possible that some game stores still have a few. Our stocks are getting a little low on the other colors as well, but we are getting ready to put in a restock at the beginning of the year. Happy holidays and thank you for supporting Portable Warfare. We have some new products that will be coming to market in 2016 so keep your eyes peeled for announcements.

A LIMITED AMOUNT OF ARMY GREEN SERGEANTS ARE BACK IN STOCK

We have limited number of the Army Green Sergeants that are back in stock, get them while they last.

Published: June 28, 2015

RECON BLACK IS HERE!

Recon Black Sergeant and Army Green Sergeant miniature storage casesAfter a much along wait, the Sergeants are back in stock along with an all new black on black version called Recon Black. The Recon Black Sergeant features a true black fabric with a first ever Portable Warfare logo in black which gives it a really cool stealth feel. It was one of those things where I wasn't sure how good it would look, but now finally getting to see it in person, it's awesome.

All the other colors have also been restocked. We also brought back the Army Green. The new green is a little different from the color before. This new Army Green is a little darker and more of a true army green. The Army Green Sergeant has been one of the most difficult colors to get matched from production run to production run, but I have to say this is the best green yet.

Published: Jan 20, 2015

FOAM RESTOCKED!

We finally received our restock of Blü foam. All sizes are once again available and you can now order on the site. In other good news, I just received word a few hours ago that the restock on the Sergeant bags have been released from customs and are in a warehouse in California ready to be shipped to us here on the east coast. My hope is that they arrive by end of next week and we can start to fill all the back orders and starting once again taking new orders. In addition, this restock has the new long awaited Recon Black Sergeants.

Published: Jan 8, 2015

FOAM DELAYS

The manufacturer for the Blü foam has been delayed on production due to a lack in supply of source product. Expected restocks of the Blü foam trays are sometime January. The moment we receive them the site will be updated and available to purchase once again.

Published: Dec 22, 2014

RESTOCK UPDATE

We are now out of stock on the Tactical Orange bags as of today. There may still be some retailers out there that have them, but at this point the only color we have left in stock is Chaos Pink and not that many at that. We still don't have a more firm date about the arrival of all the restocks. We do know that they are on the boat over here and that arrival is still likely towards the end of the month. There have been some slowdowns recently with the longshoreman union issues on the west coast which is unfortunately where the bags will arrive. Hopefully the unions will have things cleared up by the time the Sergeants arrive, but it is my understanding that there still may be a backup effect. In any regards we are very excited to get the restocks and the new arrival of Recon Black.

Published: Dec 8, 2014

HOLIDAY SHIPPING DELAYS

Shipping will be delayed between December 1-4. All orders will resume shipping on the 5th. Orders can still be placed, during this time a will be shipped out on the 5th.

Published: Nov 29, 2014

RESTOCKS ARE CURRENTLY UNDER WAY

It's been a while since our last update because I have been busy working on solving some production issues, but I am happy to report that The Sergeant bags are current in production and set to be restocked in December. We will also be introducing a new color which we will annouce shortly. Thanks to all the fans and supporters for your patience on waiting for these restocks. We still have Orange and Pink in stock in the event you can't wait til December for the other colors to come back in.

ALL Blü FOAM HAVE BEEN RESTOCKED

The new shipment of Blü Foam came in today which means that all sizes are now back in stock. The Buildout #1 and #2 options are now once again available as well.

Published: Jan 14, 2014

3" Blü FOAM TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK

The holiday rush is zapping our inventory quickly. We are out of 3" foam trays which makes the buildout #1 and #2 temporarily unavailable as well. We are excited to see that they are so popular, but at the same time we are apologetic that we can not support everyone's gaming needs for the holidays. The foam is currently on order for reproduction and expected to be back in stock early January. If you have any questions, please drop us a line.

APC TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK

SERGEANT RESTOCK IS HERE

Ion Blue Sergeant Mini Storage Bag

The Sergeant restock has finally arrived. Thank you all again for your patience. The delay has been due to the fact that we changed factories and we had to go through a prototype test phase again to make sure everything met the same high quality standards as before. As a result of the factory change, the color dye lots are a little different, so you may notice some color differences. This round of Gun Metal Gray is a little lighter, the Chaos Pink is also a little lighter, and the Tactical Orange is slightly different. If anyone is concerned about these color shifts please send me an email with any questions.

In the meantime the exciting news is the announcement of the new Ion Blue colored Sergeant. The demand for this is already super high and I anticipate them selling out quicker than all the other color. We should have enough for a couple of months but if your are thinking about it, I recommend to act quickly on the blue. The blue will be available to purchase on the web site by monday and they should be ready to ship from the distributor early next week.

Published: Sept 25, 2013

SERGEANTS ARRIVING SOON

Word is that the Sergeants shipment will be arriving in the states tomorrow and will be shipped to our facility early next week. Once they arrive here, we need to do some quick barcode and product tagging, but will be able to start shipping almost immediately. Another quick thanks for the patience.

Published: Sept 20, 2013

SERGEANTS CURRENTLY IN PRODUCTION

I want to first thank you all for your patience in waiting for the restocks of the Sergeants. We had to change factories this year and in doing so we had to take extra time in making sure the bags were manufactured to the same high quality as before. So there was a some additional back and forth before we could finally sign off.

We just sold our last Green bag this week, but the good news is that restocks will be here in a just a few weeks. Mid September is when we expect delivery.

Some exciting news is that we will be unveiling a new color called Ion Blue. It is very close in color to the Blü bottom of the foam trays. Everyone who has seen the Ion Blue prototype has been super excited and we are anticipating that it will sell very well. This next wave that will be arriving will be in the following colors: Gun Metal Gray, Tactical Orange, Chaos Pink, and Ion Blue.

1.5" Blü FOAM TRAYS ARE OUT OF STOCK

It looks like there was a bit of a backed up demand for the 1.5" foam and as a result we saw a huge surge in sales for these when they came back in and consequently the 1.5" trays are now once again out of stock. We are working to get them back in stock as quickly as possible. In the meantime, if you are looking to take advantage of one of the discounts that the Build-outs offer, email us and let us know if you would like to do a custom buildout and we will provide you with a discounted price. This usually equates to one of the trays of foam being free. We will offer this discount option until the 1.5" trays are back in stock.

STOCK LEVELS UPDATE

Unfortunately there has been some further delay with the over seas shipment of all our restocks. We still don't have any details on why, but just that everything is expected to arrive in the first week of February now. We suspect that there are some customs delays still piled up from the holiday season, but we can only speculate at this point.

We did receive a small airmail shipment in December that allowed us to restock enough of the Chaos Pink to get our Breast Cancer prize support out. We also had a small amount of Gun Metal and Army Green bags that went immediately to our distributor.

As of right now we have some Army Green available and plenty of APCs. I also just want to give a quick thanks to our customers and supports for your patience.

Published: Jan 23, 2012

STOCK LEVELS UPDATE November 30, 2011

We have received some news that the restocks have been delayed a bit more till January, but we are working on trying to get some Chaos Pink airmailed to us hopefully before Christmas. The moment we get them in, we will send a note out to everyone who has inquired about it and to our normal media outlets as well as the web site here of course. Have a happy holidays.

NEW PRODUCT RELEASE: THE APC

The APC miniature storage box

The APC is a new product released today for those miniature gamers who want to safely store their miniatures, but are on a budget. The APC is a bare bones style case that can be used for your daily transport to your local store or as a cheap solution for long time storage in your closet. This product is also great for commission miniature painters to ship out finished minis. Just tape the edge, slap a mailing label on it, and ship it.

The APC features a white clamshell style, finished, cardboard box that measures 19"x9"x2" on the inside. It comes with a charcoal colored pick-n-pluck style foam tray that has an attached foam padding at the bottom and a loose fitting foam topper. The actual depth of the foam tray will allow you to store miniatures up to 1.75" deep.

UPFATE ON STOCK LEVELS July 28,2011

As you can see our stock levels are getting low. As of today we are out of Gun Metal Gray on our web site. Currently the only way to get Gun Metal Gray is to check your local gaming store or to have your local store owner order from our distributor PHD. I suspect the stock level for Gun Metal Gray at our distributor will only last until the end of August. The good news is that we have a production run currently in progress to restock Army Green, Gun Metal Gray, and everyone's favorite, Chaos Pink.

We had hoped to time our production run so that there would be no outage of products for our customers and retailers alike, but this year brings some new challenges with overseas production like labor shortages, shipping demands, the value of the US dollar and a host of other economic factors, so it will unfortunately take a little longer than normal. Our restocks should arrive late October or Early November. We thank everyone for their continued support so that we can make quality products. Stay tuned for some new products announcements coming up in August.

UPFATE ON GUN METAL GRAY BAGS August 26,2011

PORTABLE WARFARE UNVEILS GAMING STORAGE CASES

ORLANDO, Fla. (September 9, 2010) – Portable Warfare, an innovator in organization solutions for tabletop gamers and modelers, today introduced a new case to protect and transport tabletop gaming miniatures, rule books and other gaming accessories.

The new Sergeant™ line, with prices starting under $40, offers sleek designs and secure construction to ensure valued gaming equipment stays safe while looking polished. Each bag provides full-featured functionality: rugged exteriors designed to survive the elements and tests of travel, and smartly-designed zippers for fast access. Optional customizable pick-and-pluck foam trays store a variety of miniatures. This collection is perfect for the miniature gaming enthusiast seeking appealing cases that provide quick access and protection.

With a variety of gamer-friendly pockets and pouches, the Sergeant™ collection comes in Army Green, Gun Metal Gray and Chaos Pink and can be purchased with or without Blü foam.

“Thought by most gamers to be the finest trays in the industry, Blü foam trays are built with the same philosophy as Portable Warfare products,” said Chris Strecker, CEO of Portable Warfare. “It’s all about the gamer.”

When used, in soft sided miniature cases like the Sergeant™, the distinctive blue padding gives the overall tray plenty of firmness to support heavy metal miniatures, but is also soft enough to offer optimum protection. Blü foam rounded corners fit well and are easily removable.

“Understanding the needs of real gamers is critical in developing innovative, high-quality organization solutions,” said Strecker. “As gamers ourselves, we understand that cases must be affordable, functional, durable, and visually appealing. We do extensive field testing in a real gaming environment with active gamers before a product gets the Portable Warfare seal of approval.”
