    Damn nice. The sheer scale of it all - 1700 minis! I got tired of painting a few hundred Zombicide minis. I should stop complaining and get back to work.
    Very inspiring, Paul!

    Paul, I can't fathom the detail you maintain across so many miniatures.

    Nice Camels. too, Dan.

    Broken Token deck holder, holding 4 each of my damage decks and a collision deck. It will hold sleeved cards if Fantasy Flight (not Mayday unfortunately). I had them sleeved but removed them as they seem to do fine. I sleeve the maneuver decks though.

    Chris - looks like you might be taking over where Matt left off.


    Ezekiel - that u-boat looks awesome. I still have not attempted to assemble the cardboard one that came with the game.

    Thanks, Pete. Matt's thread with his counter boxes was definitely inspirational, although I went with decals lol. Learned a bit on this one, and I may paint the white gaps in the name. The decals fell apart so many times I got tired of trying

    Easier than it would seem, Pete. The same way commanders do - through organization. The basic 'manoeuvre' unit has between 10 and 50 miniatures - cavalry on 3 per base / infantry on 6 or 8 per base with 4-6 bases per unit. The units are organized in 'division' about 7 'divisions' per side with two players per side.

    In terms of managing my collection there are several things that help - a database (actually an excel file), a long history of the period (since the 150th anniversary of Waterloo), an extensive library of the various armies (organization and uniforms) and building it up over a long period of time (familiarity).

    The main challenge is storage and 'now, where did I put that unit?' In setting up the game the 'historical order of battle' will never match the units in my collection so it took some thinking to figure out how to best use my collection.

    Now it's focused on unjamming guns (everything you can hit), sun in your eyes (light) and identification of an enemy (bird sticker). Observer / gunner training first, then daddy can lend her his tiny planes in next step

    By the way, it's the easiest project ever: you just dig into your warehouse, garage or any other place, find what you don't need anymore and out it on board

    Gunsmithing bench: Last piece to complete my M4 ordered.

    Future projects: Looking for sources on 1/300 or smaller WW1 and WW2 tanks, and good paint references on same--I have a harebrained idea for a little business venture I'm toying with the idea of, thinking about suggesting to Herr Oberst that we raffle off a few Alpha Test batches as a site fundraiser.

    Brilliant idea, and your box looks great!

    Well, if you stretch that to 1:285, you pull in the whole line from GHQ. Back in the day, they did the best modelling for microarmor. Heroics & Ros models are 1:300, so you can look there, and they have a decent set of WWI stuff in addition to WWII. I haven't looked at the market in about 20 years, so my info may be out of date.

    Chris, if you excuse an English expression, that box is absolutely the "dog's bollocks", it's beautiful. p.s. I have no idea why a dog's testicles are considered the peak of briliance but that box is brilliant

    Maybe not the peak of brilliance, but a synonym for grandness.

    TBH, Daryl, I was thinking of GHQ's 1/285 as in the "about 1/300" basket, looking at them for "Low Altitude," 1/600 Pico Armor as "Medium Altitude" and still looking for a 1/1000-1/1200-ish scale line as "High Altitude." GHQ doesn't do WWI, so I may need to look at H&R for WGF too.

    Glad you like the Nappys (diapers outside North Am). Some really good work there, Ken. I especially like the lizard riders.
