Obviously the main difference between the three trays is the slot size:
- 36 slot: 52mm x 32mm
- 40 slot: 50mm x 25mm
- 50 slot: 40mm x 25mm
Here are the 40 slot and 50 slot trays with some 28mm figures from the Perry Sudan range:
If you are counting you will have noticed that I have managed to get additional command figures in the new tray which were stored in a separate tray (a huge relief for my OCD!).
Here are some close up shots of a single row of 5 slots from each:
As you can see even the shorter slots in the new trays give these figures plenty of room - of course the others with bayonets are a tighter fit but only the figures running at high porte have the blades actually sticking into the foam. Incidentally the figures in the pictures are on 20mm bases.
Clearly figures with spears and the like are often going to need the larger slots of the 40 compartment tray but for everything else the extra 10 slots per tray are a huge improvement.
