Basing two to a base (1" x 3/4"), have well over a thousand of the little guys and have no idea as yet how I will store them. Normal foam trays are out (too many stands for that), maybe magnetic sheeting at the bottom of a box.

How do you store all your armor at this scale?

I use make your own depth boxes and magnetic paint for my 1/300 scale armor and just about all my figures:

Buy some cabinets. If for thousands, buy lots of cabinets.

I can get about 9000 28mm figs into these large cabinets (IKEA,


About 4000+ into these CD cabinets (ARGOS),

and countless 15mm into these three wide wooden drawer file boxes (IKEA) and cabinet (2 auction rooms).

You never regret an investment in wargame furniture in the long run.

I base all my collections on steel and store in magnet lined boxes. In a 12x18 box with 2 layers you could fit your entire collection in just two boxes. Total space occupied; 12 x 18 x 4 inches.

Kaiser Rushforth cases/foam inserts for 6mm figures.

I made custom storage trays out of old Zvezda vehicle boxes each designed to take a full regiment. I then stack them three deep in slimline A4 boxfiles with bubble wrap inside the top.

Job done.

My 1/600 is based on 1.5" squares in 3's. Believe it or not, I store them in zip lock bags in a box.

Picoarmor is made from pretty hard metal and I have not lost any gun barrels plus I sealed them really well when I painted them.

In a ziplock bag, in the original bags they came in, thus far.

Great suggestions guys, thank you. Magnetic paint had never even crossed my mind until now.

Olicana, you have a great set up there! Unfortunately I don't have the room for such a luxury as yet. Having trouble just fitting another bookcase in my office.
