How do you store game figures?

Recommended Posts

Recently some of the games I have acquired come with so many boxes of extra figures that I don't know what to do with them all.  The game boxes themselves have the plastic tray inserts in them that are made to hold just the base game figures which is nice but...  It poses the problem for me that if I want to use an expansion or anything I have to carry multiple bulky boxes.  How do you folks deal?  I'm just running out of space for all these game boxes.

depending on the kind of figures and the numbers, I either put them in foam trays or in tool/tackle boxes. If there's way too many to carry around I keep an extra tray or two and place only the figures I'm going to use for a specific session.

Pretty much how I store my mini's :)

I bought shelves to store all the boxes of figures. I have over a dozen cardboard and foam cases,  5 Reaper KS cases, plus the most recent one, and a "gun storage" carry case.  Oh, and two or three of the little "paint kit" cases with foam that I use for weekly games.

Broken Token makes several MDF boxes that are designed to fit all those extra figures into a single box. Two I know of for sure is the Kingdom Death and Rising Sun that will fit all the expansions

I mount all my figures on metal fender washers, and they are then stored in boxes lined with magnetic sheet.

I had a dream once where I covered the ceiling with steel sheet, and mounted magnets in the bases of my miniatures.

 

In my dream I even arranged the figures to create battle dioramas....

 

The Auld Grump - at the time I was storing paper models above the suspended ceiling.

Right now they're almost all spread out in small plastic storage containers, mostly because I've really painted so few of em... Don't really have anything to keep em "safer" yet, so that'll be something to look into.

      Hey Everyone, first let me say thanks to all the great people who visited us at ReaperCon. You guys definitely made it our best Con yet. We sold out for the 3rd Straight year. We always love coming to ReaperCon!
       
      Now it is time for us try again to restock and continue to make the best storage and display solution for miniatures on the Market, No Foam required. Our latest Kickstarter has launched, and this version of the Clear XCase will be better, stronger, faster...OK, maybe not faster, but definitely better and stronger. These units are able to withstand pretty much any normal usage scenario that you might throw at them, for, what should be, years to come.  Also, you will have a chance to get your hands on the first wave of organizational inserts we plan to offer for the XCase. The shelf and tray inserts that are add-ons will allow you to display your miniatures even more prominently during travel or will hold your dice, tokens, cards or whatever components your game has... except the board.
       
      This is a relaunch as our September campaign came up short. We did quite a bit of marketing this time and we are doing better but we could still use your backing I hope you will come check it out.

      A minis/painting station transport bag from Portable Warfare with modular selection of foam insert trays. I'm interested...though I've never been one for the rigid transport cases (personal opinion) and hey mobile paint station possibility too.

      Want to upgrade your game storage from merely functional to multi-functional? From bearable to beautiful? From disposable to indispensable? 
      That's why we designed the Cabinet Game Table!
      It’s a Game Cabinet
      The storage is specifically for games. Shelves designed to hold game boxes on their edge for easier access. Six smaller drawers for dice, cards, and other accessories. A bookshelf for game books (such as RPGs) up to 11” tall—with extra depth so the spines are protected in the interior. Two larger drawers for anything too big for the smaller ones. And double doors on the bottom open to large storage spaces for bigger games.  
      It’s a Table
      The leaves of the table stow away on the sides of the cabinet. The trim on the front converts to the legs and a support stretcher between them for maximum support and stability. Simply connect the leaves, attach the legs, and fasten to the Cabinet to transform it to a three person table.
      It’s a Game Table
      And when you want to play a game, the top is reversible. The flip side has a one inch lip to keep dice and game pieces on the table. The 29.75” x 40.5” fabric–lined play area has enough room to handle a 24” x 36” game board with space to spare.
      A few seconds of your time could make the difference in growing support for our community. Help unlock Social Media stretch goals by sharing and using #cabinet #gametable! See Stretch Goals, below, for more information.

      About this project
      Introduction
      Hey there guys and gals!  Roger here again to talk to you a bit about your personal storage needs for all of your games and components.  What I've come up with this time around is a series of hardwood boxes in several sizes, with a variety of uses (Not just for cards this time!  Ok, a couple of them are!).  I'll get into the specifics of each box further down the page.  But first, I just wanted to thank you for checking out my Kickstarter!  Take a moment and appreciate the fact that you are awesome!
      As some of you already know, and the rest will find out now....I'm pretty new to the online world for woodworking.  Not that I'm new to being online, I mean I still remember dialing in to old BBS's on local phone lines with my 2400baud modem and my 386DX266 (Awesome at the time PC).  But I've never actually put my work online beyond a simple FB page until now.  However, in recent years, I've noticed my back starting to fail on occasion.  Which, for a construction guy, signals the end of the line.  I can't count on my game store to cover my bills (It's a game store after all.).  I had to find something else to do.  So, I opened my woodworking shop and have been pushing it mostly online. I specialize in game related items.  
      I've also started a YouTube channel and stream there almost daily. 
       
      These 2 tools (Band Saw & Drum Sander) will help me increase productivity and reduce prices.  
      This cute little box will make sure you always have a place for all of those tiny little bits that keep getting misplaced! And at only $25 for Standard woods or $40 for premium woods, it won't break the bank to look good!  
      Here are the bands I ordered to keep your bit box closed. The color you receive will be random unless you message me directly and request a specific color.  
       PLAY  
      The Dice Tray to keep all of your lucky dice in! It even splits so you can share with a friend. $35 for standard woods and only $60 for premium woods.
