Boxes, not BoxersIn other words, not 28mm Rocky Balboa. Rather, how do you store your figures? This is an age-old issue for model-makers and gamers: it's hard to achieve the right balance between the cost of storage solutions, the protection afforded, the efficiency with which items can be packed, their portability and any number of other considerations. Each gamer probably puts a different emphasis on these various elements, but here's what I do:
The Old-Fashioned Way
Pro: cheap. Also, they come in exactly the size you want.
Con: making your own boxes does take quite a bit of work.
The New Way'peel off' craft box; it's just the right depth for 28mm miniatures on the common 25mm/1" bases.
Pro: readily available for no real effort. Very solid - offers good protection. Reasonably cheap.
Con: postage costs can be an issue for bulky sets. Not easy to modify - if you want internal dividers then good luck with sticking those to a polypropylene box!
AfterwordThese are the types of box that I use for most of my figures, though some of the largest and most awkwardly-shaped models are kept in an odd assortment of cardboard boxes. Also, my gaming terrain is kept in much larger cardboard boxes.
There's no right or wrong way to do this (well, actually I can think of several wrong ways to store carefully-detailed models); how do you keep yours?
