Cheap Egg Foam / Pick Foam?

I was shopping around for pick foam to make some "large monster" sized mini cases. But what I've found has been pretty overpriced - in the $12 + $8 shipping per block of foam.

I store my unpainted minis and plastic in Plano 2-3700s. But for painted, I'd like foam trays, egg foam, etc. - and I'm shocked at how expensive it is.

Anyone know a cheap source for either?


  1. I know when I was larping more the local craft store would sell similar foam in largish sheets for reupholstering chairs and such. I can't remember what it was called though that might be cheaper. It cuts really well with an electric turkey knife.

  2. Our local Army/Navy Surplus store sells foam pads for a reasonable price. A good utility knife will cut right through it.

    1. Hmm. I wonder if we have one of those around here. We have uniform stores that double as Army/Navy surplus stores. I'll have to check.
