I've got my minis on shot-glass display thingies, the more rare items framed or safely displayed, and I wanted to share my small bit of joy... I was given the gift of shelving! And the shelves are already starting to bow from the weighty books. Modest amount of books, but I'm just so happy to have big shelves.


hey Azurah, wheres the little flowers and the barbie dolls  :P

hehe

nice lot of stuff there :)

Wow, Az & fly_pu_mon, you guys are so neat and organized!  Most of my stuff is just stacked here and there in complete disarray.  Which probably explains why once in a while I buy something I've already got a copy of without even knowing it...

My stuff is mostly stored, but it is complete documented via excel. I still make duplicate purchases... 8O  

It would help is they were in bookcases. At least I could see them.


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

Proudly displayed on shelves I constructed in our basement

see 404 Not Found, although the collection has expanded somewhat since this was taken.

Its 42 linear feet of shelving.

Impressive, for the link you need to remove or seperate the "," from the end as I did in the quote above for it to work.

The software tries to guess URLs automatically.  Sometimes, you need to put
Code:
[url] [/url]
around them if they have punctuation nearby.  :wink:

Hey, what about the "filled shelves".

Are all those boxes full of D&D stuff?

One second, getting pictures of filled shelves.

Yes the boxes were full of rpg items.

Had to get rid of that ugly light also.

Nice, Mike.

Is that a complete run of box sets (woodys & whiteys)?  Very cool.

I also like the bookends; are they maces?  My weapon of choice.

Thanks!

I still need a 2nd print woody.

Yes the bookends are maces, and a set of unicorn heads. I actually won the mace ones off ebay.

Just moved house and my Lounge is full! My partner is very tolerant luckily...

Back on topic tho the best thing I find to do with my collection is use it. I read the items frequently (well the non-shrink stuff at any rate!) and I push my PCs from setting to setting to give them a flavour of each. Of course this means I have a practical reason to read the background stuff which I enjoy almost as much as playing them.
