Usually I just use plain board game pawns (like these: http://www.spel-landet.se/Graphics/Products/2101_s.jpg ) to mark friendlies and enemies.

This doesn't seem sufficient for Savage World combat as it seems that those fights tend to contain quite a lot of opponents. Thus I've been looking into these tri-fold paper-models that are available for various SW settings. Thing is, these paper figures seem to be quite fragile and I'm a quite mobile GM. How would you folks recommend storing them? Plonking them into a paper tube (like a Pringles tube, damn that means I have to eat Pringles again! Razz) ? Some sort of box?

Thoughts?

I tend to avoid the Tri-folds. I've since gone to "tubes" instead. They are easier to make, and if you roll the cardstock around a pencil/pen before gluing, it "breaks" alot of the strength around the tube, making the occasional "squish" easier to fix. I've got a thread on making them in this forum. As for storing them, I just use a plastic grocery bag.

I use various small boxes made by Artbin. They're customizable, come in a wide variety of colors, and are fairly inexpensive. They also fit nice in a file box or a Zuca bag.

I use plastic craft/utility boxes, depending upon where I can get them cheaply ... or, failing that, a cardboard box of appropriate dimensions. If I need subdivisions in my cardboard box, I just cut up ANOTHER cardboard box to make dividers for the first one. Messy, not very pretty, but gets the job done quickly.

I keep mine in a plastic art box, from which my daughter had used up the supplies, but any small cardboard box will do. I usually keep "sets" of them in small zip lock bags, which both keeps them together and makes it easy to grab and put into my game supplies storage case that I take with me to games.

Instead of eating Pringles eat Quaker Instant Oatmeal (it's heart healthy) and provides some great, much larger, tubes to place your paper minis in. Plus they make great terrain.
