    What do you do with your painted miniatures?

    Unfortunately all mine get sold but I wondered whether you just chuck them in a box forever or maybe you have a room full of display cabinets?

    mine, the previous painteds not currently in use for gaming, are stored in tackle box trays in a cabinet. I'm still looking for a suitable (and inexpensive) glass display case to put in the living room for them. :)

    Mantic minis come in a wonderful cassette case that has foam in, for storage after you've painted them, so a lot of them are inthere- I have a couple of display cabinets for my other stuff- but we're decorating, so everything in a box at the moment ;) Hopefully getting new wall mounted cabinets soon ;)

    I have mine in a glass display cabinet and some are also at my local game shop in their display cabinet.

    See, I used to have stuff in the local GW cabinet (probably still do) but most of it came home with me when I left the company. And I think I've probably sold most of those pieces now anyway!!! ;)

    I change my dioramas out with the seasons on various countertops. The minis I keep in a nice mirrored back display case mounted on my wall. My g/f got it for me for my b day one year. Its for displaying shot glasses. Not too deep, but perfect size for minis and you can adjusst the number and height of the shelves. <$200. I want a bigger sqaure type one for dios and dragons though. Ikea has em for pretty cheap.

    This is the one I have currently:

    NeatPete the Glass Ikea one is what I use, I also use Acrylic Risers on the shelves as well since they are so far apart and there is a lot of wasted space in them.

    that answers one of my questions about the Ikeas... the other being how easy would it be to light it.

    It has a spot for a small light at the top you just have to buy it on it's own. I never bought it. Since it's a glass case and gets plenty of light from the room lighting. Also if you fill the top shelf up the light won't penetrate past it.
