Miniatures....Egad!  I must have just over 1000...mostly Warhammer 40,000, but also a nice collection of the classic Grenadier figures.  I keep them in boxes, out of sight because  I tend to think of them as game pieces rather than display pieces.

I forgot about miniatures... I have about 1000 classic Ral Partha, Grenadier, Classic Cast and other makes of fantasy character and monster figs from the 70s-90s. I also have about 400 1/2400 scale modern and WWII naval ships...

Here are some pics of our collection. Some are old so you may recognize items that are now in YOUR collections :)

No idea how many pieces we still own.

We also have boxes of "future sale" items and enough Dragon magazine doubles/tripples to gag a purple worm strewn about the house.

This TSR bookshelf once belonged to Mr. Mentzer. We loaded it w/ shrinked box sets.

We plan on removing everything from the room and doing it up like the inside of a castle w/ stone walls, wood beams w/concealed lighting/sound, portcullis door on closet, etc. Hopefully we can get it done by GenCon.

   On my first read I thought you said, "1/24th scale" and I thought....Good God, wouldn't that crush his house?  What kind of table does he use those on!

I have four Cats:  Devine, Tristan, Zed and Frodo.  Anyone have more than that?  :D


I have four of them also.  Samantha, Henry, Whisky and Tinkerbell.  The one pictured is Tinkerbell...she is the newest of the brood and loves to try to get into the empty space behind the box sets.  I keep the door to the room closed most of the time so it is rare that they get in at all.

I still feel bad for that Gangbusters box, it's sinking into the carpet...  


Awful...just awful Brian.  :P

Cats. The other white meat.

Is the Hollaway on the right an Oriental Adventures painting from a Dragon magazine cover?  

Great shots, especially liked the TSR shelving.   :D

Actually we're not sure what it's from. If anyone can find what it is published in I will send you a free piece of published D&D artwork by Tom Baxa(from a Monstrous Compendium)!!!

I've definitely seen this one before and think it's a great painting.  The girl with the sword is Asian, right?  Could be a plate in the OA Monstrous Compendium, though I'm pretty sure it was a Dragon mag cover somewhere in the 100's.  Don't have my collection on hand to check, but perhaps it can be searched on the Dragon CD-ROM for Hollaway covers?  I'd love to get some OA art so if you're ever interested in selling...  :wink:

The coloring scheme is very similar to issues 121 & 127. Maybe it was an alternate or just a peice from that period that was never used.

My collection is 400 - 500 books/modules etc. They're currently mostly stored at my folks house as there's not room for them at my current place.

I'm not sure what my other half will make of the collection when we move in together in six months time...

I do have some "reading" quality copies of various common rulebooks etc. that I store under my bed. The other day she found all these books and magazines under there and I was a bit embarassed. Though, I suppose some men keep more shameful magagazines under their beds than I do!

No idea how many. Lessee, there's more than 100 linear feet of RPG stuff on shelves, and then more than a thousand cubic feet of part-boardgames part-RPG-boxed, and then there's the stuff in storage (4000+ boardgames), and a hundred or two manuscripts and in-production manuscripts (like the recent MFA), and then original art too...

I suppose I oughta count it all some day.

But yeah, Strat and the BurntBros prolly have me beat. What Strat didn't tell you is that most of his is prime-grade, like a Dragon #1 in Mint that I sold a few years back... and Tim Kask's personal autographed Brownbox. (Sorry if I'm giving away secrets, Strat.)

Gotta come clean.

Out of curiosity I actually ran the count option on excel (I am a level one novice) to try and get some better numbers. Looks like my AD&D/D&D estimate is about 100 items too high. The rest of the stuff is closer, maybe rip another 50 items off the total.

Sure looks like a more ...  8O


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Its amazing how the numbers creep up on you.

Did the excel 'thing' and came up with around the 350 mark for items up to AD&D - I don't collect anything newer than that.
Tack on another 420 odd for magazines and that would pretty much be my lot.
Remodelling the study soon so I'll finally be able to display them and ge them out of storage boxes.

Judging from some of the collections, the sale of 'guard cat' tranquilizer darts just increased for those looking at some midnight raids.  :twisted:

HUGE KUDOs to those that have posted pics - some pretty fantastic collections that I can only dream of.....
