Does anyone use some sort of software to keep track of their miniature collections? With pictures and/or searchable tags? Anyone in the hobby for a while, and who invested in Bones (and many other miniature) Kickstarters; Warhammer armies; Heroclix armies; individual or box sets at your FLGS or online store, etc. has accumulated so many that they tend to forget what exactly they own anymore. I know I went over the 1000 individual miniature mark after Bones 2. And with Bones 4 around the corner, it keeps growing alarmingly fast. And I know I'm not the only one. Sure for the Kickstarters miniatures, I can always go back to the original campaign page and look up the images. But there certainly must be a simple application that would do the same job as Reaper's tag search, but without requiring coding skill. I think my ideal format would be something that would show: Picture; name; company; manufacturer code (if available); sculptor name (if available); and any amount of tags (male - fighter - sword - elf - bow), and then filter the results. I know it can be done; I just don't know how. I know there are image organization software, movie collection software, comic book collection software, music collection software, etc. But haven't found anything more generic for miniatures. February 2019 Update: I'm taking the Excel route afterall.
So I think this should probably go in the show off section: So last year, after working at a spice export company for ten years, in management's ultimate wisdom, they closed down our office and moved it to two different offices, one in California and one to Chennai, India. I got a new job in a different industry, so all's well that ends well. One of the perks I did end up was this display case that they used to show off spice samples. I've had it in my basement for quite a while now, but a few weekends ago I finally found a cheap piece of furniture to put it on, so last night built the shelves I got from Super Duper Target and filled it full of my painted stuff. Here it is with an angle to the little area I slavishly paint away at And a closer view
I have a lot of minotaurs. I share them with you here. You can share yours too if you like. This one is big, 50mm toe to brow, nearly 100mm total height. Believed to be from Games Workshop in the '90s. Base is hand-built from wood, sand, and acrylic gel. I meant for the color to resemble a black Angus bull, but it turned out more like a gorilla.

Doctore Oenomaus posted a topic in Show OffMy name is Doctore Oenomaus, I have started my collection when I was gifted upon by my mother a board game filled with detailed miniatures taken from realms and eras all fated to battle each other in the name of the gods, such was the theme of Heroscape. Then I came across fantasy, medieval, and science fiction miniatures from novelty stores, comic book stores, Ebay and of trade. After parting with some coin, I now hold quite the variety of miniatures; vast and numerous for such a new person of collecting. Now, I procured some Ral Partha, and Bones minis, unsullied, and un painted... in attempt to join the ranks of miniature artists and painters, I bought some acrylic and stole my sister's paintbrush...now, here I am humbled...to be here, and I show you some of my wares, even though of low quality. I will continue to improve as I strive to emulate all other's works as best I can. Sincerely, Genesis.
