Question Storing your collection

I know that there are threads like this out there, but I need some more advice. How do you store your collections? I used to keep the figures in shoeboxes but would cringe whenever anyone else looked through them for fear they would break(an izumi, MW, and a KoW were broken, but superultrafreakishcrazymega glue fixed them). I recently switched to grouping them in baggies and found out that it was too much of a hassle. I keep my terrain in a large plastic tub.

I also wondered how you set up your board. I have a large coliseum-like board on a table and a smaller board on the floor.

Thanks for your help

I really have been trying to be patient with people lately but you really aren't even trying. You say you know there are other threads about these very things yet you still go start a new thread rather than either reading through those other ones.

(I wrote a lot more but decided to leave it at that)

Re: Storing your collection

I tried the plastic bag thing for a while as well, huge hassle. What I finally did was buy these little plastic drawers at Wal-Mart there's 5 drawers to a set and their about 8 bucks a pop. Thats what I keep all the waves in. All the figures from the larges sets (Orm's Return etc.) I keep in a larger drawer same plastic just bigger. I am working on getting some for my terrain. They're a little more expensive.

And for future reference if you know there's a thread already post it there.

Re: Storing your collection

Could a moderator move this out of the "news" section and into the appropriate section, the "General Discussion" section or at least lock the thread?

Re: Storing your collection

I use the baggies to store the figures in - all uniques get their own bag, all commons share with their kin. Then the bags go in large Sterlite bins - I have a squad and hero bin for each general (Marvel and Aquilla share for now) and the Marro are seperated by unique and common in their bins. I use the same style bins for storing all my tiles as well, it works well for stacking them and the (nearly) transparent sides make pulling bins easier.

Re: Storing your collection

Yeah, definitely use the search function in the future. It's a simple courtesy.

But for whatever it's worth, I use these to organize the commons. Easy to organize, and easy to transport. (I use a tacklebox for uniques).

I get mine at Home Depot.

Re: Storing your collection

Here's something I hope people will remember and do for a storage problem
1 get paper and pencil
2 draw a great storage design
3 find out were to put it and get measurements, really accurate
4 go to your local store were they sell wood, nails, hammer, tape measure, and a saw
5 I think you know what to do at this point
6 get some friends to help make your storage unit
7 don't post another storage thread again

Mess with the Dragon you're going to get burned.
Not only do the rules say you're wrong, they also say you're a duck.

Re: Storing your collection

I just keep my figures in bins.

Without bad HScape figs, there are no good ones.

Re: Storing your collection

I think the more important question is....

Where do you store all your threads on storing your collection?
