Over the last few days I've put a couple of videos up on the Utubes (links below) covering my method of figure storage. The features are aimed mostly at those new to the hobby but there are tips for all including the patented Yarkshire Gamer (TM) "Upside down box method".
I managed to get a slack handful of 24.5 l boxes (hopefully avaliable in imperial measurements soon 😎) and have added 2 mm MDF bases to the lids.
The picture above shows Box 4 for the Italian Wars Project and in the first video I cover setting out the base of the box to fit the various units in.
Box 1 with my Italian and Swiss Pike with supporting shot, room for at least another Pike Block in there.
The Condottiero Box currently has 10 x 6 figure units with room for another 6, better get painting.
And finally the Light Cavalry box with Stradiots etc and a rogue Swiss Polearm unit. Space for 3 more light Cavalry Units here.
Also on the Utubes is an introduction video to the storage. Thanks for watching.
What a clever idea re the boxes! I use them the less-exciting other way up, but with everything magnetised.ReplyDelete
Cheers, the other way up (the right way 😁) is the norm for my figures but the pike blocks are a nightmare to lift out of a deep box 👍🏼Delete
Smashing system Ken! Your armies look impressive all grouped up. And those flags are absolutely tops!!!ReplyDelete
Many thanks Mike 👍🏼Delete
Smart idea! Don't Pete's flags look great! Always nice to see your Italian wars figures, even in boxes!ReplyDelete
Cheers Iain, looks like they will be in a box for a long while yet ☹Delete
