One of the delights of finally being settled here in NZ is setting up my game room and office. And at last I have a chance to have a decent miniatures storage system. And here it is in progress – an antique plan drawer I’ve had for years, easily converted by cutting thin steel sheets to size and placing them in the drawers.
The only problem is very large figures, but I’m working on that …

Very Nice!! I am assuming that you are laying down steel sheets because you magnetized ALL the miniatures bases?April 12, 2017 at 3:48 pm #14164
Correct! It’s the best way of storing minis I reckon, especially as they have become more detailed and fragile, and getting them in and out of foam can damage them.April 13, 2017 at 7:59 am #14168
That looks fantastic! Possible to lock 2 drawers together for the bigger minis? What I mean is that you open 2 drawers at once…but one has no bottom..ist just the “fake outside appearence”…so you have two times the hight für minis?April 13, 2017 at 8:25 am #14169
Brilliant, that’s just what I had in mind. I just have to do it in a way that does absolutely minimal damage to my plan drawers.April 14, 2017 at 7:25 am #14175
Not really the pro…but getting the bottom out of the upper drawer…and getting some wooden pins between the 2 front parts…should work 🙂
BTW…looking at the spartan games minis…what do you think about that game?April 14, 2017 at 10:05 am #14176
I’ve enjoyed it the couple of times I’ve played it, but the rulebook is atrocious and the support for the game from Spartan seems virtually non-existent. In fact it seems to have been all but abandoned in favour of their Halo game. There’s a 14 page thread on their forums complaining about the lack of support for the game, and what appears to be a disgraceful lack of communication from Spartan Games about it, though there’s been vague stuff about a ‘rebirth’ for ages – the last news was over a year ago.May 5, 2018 at 1:31 am #17005
Ahhhh, storage. The bane of all us gamers. So nice when you find something that’s both functional and is not a complete eyesore. And I have to say, that looks great. Especially with that War of the Ring: Collector’s Edition on top.May 5, 2018 at 9:12 am #17019
Without fail, anyone who enters the room for the first time asks what that is.May 5, 2018 at 10:00 am #17023
So what do you tell them? “These are the rules of the game we are playing tonight. Pay attention, because I’m only going to explain them once.”May 5, 2018 at 2:43 pm #17026
Then I hit them over the head with it.May 7, 2018 at 7:57 am #17031
Well, that’s one way to win a game. Not sure if a concussion is the best way to get them back for a second game though.
