I would like to see a miniatures sub-heading added to the Acaeum. If it is a lot of trouble I could see not doing it but I'm really enjoying the miniatures aspect to RPG collecting and I'm wondering if we could talk about it here as a reguler thing.

I have mixed feelings on this.  I have quite a few minis, and I enjoy collecting and painting them.  Minis were certainly a component of early D&D games and gaming.  However, there are plenty of other sites that deal with minis, and I talk about minis there.  I'd recommend not have a minis sub-heading, but I'm fine if it's added.   8)

I'm kinda mixed as well. It might be manageable if limited to those that have had official TSR (pre-2E) license like the rest of the site (Minifigs, Grenadier, TSR, Citadel), but then so many have been used for old-school games that it may be unmanageable. Archive, Heritage, old and newer Ral Partha, even to Otherworld minis. Where to draw the line?

Maybe as a Subweb like the JG, Planescape, and the Wiki.

I would draw the line at TSR and also D&D/AD&D licensed/authorized products, maybe some "unauthorized", if closely aligned.

Maybe a miniatures page in the wiki?---there's an awful lot of great resources already out there for minis, so I'm not sure that the Acaeum would add a lot to the mix, per se:

- Main Page - Lost Minis Wiki
- http://www.collecting-citadel-miniatures.com/
- The Miniature Art of Dungeons and Dragons
- https://www.facebook.com/groups/339877386089536/

and I'm sure many more not at the tip of my fingertips ;)
