It depends. Painted figs on shelves & in cabinets, unpainted ones in plastic bags,boxes and strewn about my hobby room and the rest of the house.

Years ago I discovered a standard man sized 28mm figure it's nicely into egg cartons. A unit of 10-12 gets it's own carton

Sally 4th Warchests on an IKEA shelving unit for painted and based models, and a plastic bin for unpainted ones.

Started with egg cartons and Piano plastic tackle boxes but now switching to 10x12 cardboard gift boxes with a magnetic sheet in the bottom. Egg cartons were an easy and inexpensive solution, but I found they took up a lot of room compared to other solutions. Also now I can have an "army" together and ready to go.

ome are displayed on nice shelves, the rest in either GW cases or similar-sized gun cases. Unpainted minis are stored in Sterlite rectangular boxes and stacked on heavy-duty plastic storage shelves by my painting table.

Agree it depends
The really nice ones (and most of the 54mm ones) on a built-in book case in the office
I have a table in the basement with a diorama on it – I rotate the minis and terrain every few months
Wooden shelves for the rest of the painted ones except for the overflow that go into plastic boxes (including three GW storage boxes) and a storage cabinet

Most are either in plastic drawers or foam lined carrying cases of the types shown in picture

Other – pacemaker boxes, Rubbermaid boxes.

Makeup cases (the big kind with handles, latches and inner trays on risers).
Also in Plano boxes and small clear acrylic "craft" boxes, with these then stored inside decor storage boxes, cases or small chests. I've also now added "fake book" boxes to the mix.
This allows me to keep my miniatures readily handy for use or transport, while keeping a nice decor look that my wife appreciates.
Of course, a few miniatures are displayed on open bookshelves as interesting knick-knacks, when not engaged in battle!

A4 Tuff Box Files,either 20mm or 40mm deep. Sheets of ferro paper in the bottom as all my bases have magnetic tape strips. I only use 2mm,3mm or 6mm figures so even the 36 box files take up very little room.

Wooden drawers in units that support my game table, one of my "Other" choices.
|Forager ||09 Nov 2017 1:17 p.m. PST|
My "other" would be an old wooden card catalog unit. Removed the rods that held the cards in place and lined the drawer bottoms with thin cardboard or matboard to make them level.

I would love to find a wooden card catalog unit. I cannot find one anywhere.

Plastic scrapbook containers sold at craft stores. I line the bottom with 1/4 inch foam sheets. The cost of each container is about $6.00 USD.

Other – stackable jewelry trays
|Syrinx0||11 Nov 2017 7:07 p.m. PST|
My plastic boxes are mostly RUB for the painted larger armies. The GW, RPG or skirmish painted figures are all cardboard cases from KR Multicase. I stack them all on wire shelving.
I sold off my GW plastic cases to friends and bought more KR cases. I still have my Zulu British forces in jewelry trays in a traveling case I used for a convention game. I will eventually move those to RUB plastic and sell the jewelry case.
Our club uses shipping boxes with foam sheet inserts. There cost is a significant factor.

A mixture just like most folks have:-
A lot of Really Useful boxes & similar boxes from 1.1L to 64L.
2 metal & 2 plastic stationery drawer sets.
20+ KR Multicases.
A wall display case.
3 old tool boxes.
|Dagwood||13 Nov 2017 5:06 a.m. PST|
Half a cardboard box inside an A3 size RUB (the cardboard boxes are 120mm wide and an exact fit the other way). Others are in shirt boxes (20mm plastics), small black plastic boxes (15mm colonial), small tackle boxes (6mm). A mixture.

About 4 old metal 'boxes' with plastic trays(not quite 12"x9"x6"), about 6 plastic craft boxes(beads or the like)2"x12"x1"
