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.
When it comes to map-making software and mapping assets for pen-and-paper RPGs, the sci-fi genre usually gets short shrift.
GMs of sci-fi RPGs like Starfinder, Star Wars RPG, Traveller, Shadowrun, Stars without Number, and other game systems need and deserve a good set of tools and assets to create great looking battlemaps, whether printed for use at the gaming table, or for use in virtual tabletop software like Roll20 or Fantasy Grounds.
I'm running a Kickstarter campaign to try to provide a turnkey solution for this under-served market. I hope some of you will check it out.
If you've invested in nicely painted minis, you'll want nice battlemaps to place them on. No need to limit yourself to non-customizable pre-printed battlemaps.

Haven’t seen this one mentioned yet and it does seem a bit different for the zombie survival genre of miniatures games:
Theres a bit of a discount for those backing in the first 72 hours.
I’ll admit I find this interesting. Like the ships and docks setting.
Dice Sports also had a previous kickstarter for a different game, Damnation, that is set in the same world.
I’m not familiar with the company or their previous game. If anyone here has had experience with either I’d like to hear what you think.

The Kickstarter is live:
This one is for a skirmish game featuring their wonderfully fantastical minis many of which are available in either metal or resin.
