A peek into my dungeon

Some time back Scottsz wondered where I keep all these figures. Obviously, the basement.

The workbench (actually a board on a small card table). This is where the magic happens.

Do not attempt to adjust your set. This is a seriously blurry pic of my figure storage (painted only). The bottom two shelves are wargaming minis (mostly plastics, mostly ancients/medievals). The next shelf up is RPG stuff. The next shelf up is terrain and buildings, and a few assorted figures, including my Trojan Horse figure featured here. Above that is some boardgames, puzzles, and storage for a couple of unpainted DBA armies. Those Xerox boxes hold a bunch of stuff my brother wanted me to sell on eBay or something but I never got around to that. Mostly AD&D 2nd ed. stuff and various other games we never play, or which have been supplanted by later editions which are improvements, etc.

Over my bookshelves, I have a few little shelves for oversized figures that won’t fit in the tackle boxes. You can just barely see a 1/72 viking longshipin the lower left, and next to it another ship model which was a souvenir my wife’s grandparents brought back from a trip, maybe from Scandinavia?

Dragons and miscellaneous other bigguns, including my prized Goblin War Giant, many Grenadier dragons, and even a couple of figures I did NOT paint — the Heroscape dragon and the giant fire elemental, which are just too big to store anywhere else. Among the painted plastic dragons are the two Descent dragons (Fantasy Flight Games, one blue and one black), the MPC dragon, and even the dragon figure from the classic Dark Tower game. (My copy stopped working years and years ago, and all I kept was the box and figures. I’ve since learned that there is a guy who can rehab/repair the Dark Tower computer, so don’t make my mistake!)

  1. Terrifyingly similar to my wife’s set up.

    Barbies vs Lead Figurines

    • Not even a contest. I have seen no Barbies with practical armor, decent weapons, or sorcery. But one of the guys I used to play D&D with collected Man Barbies, or that is what his daughter called them. Big plastic Man Barbies of superheroes and whatnot by Todd McFarlane.

  2. Good lord.

    Just… awesome…

    decent weapons:
    The Gold Diggers


    Mother Nature

    • Ok, those are awesome. And Barbies are what, about 12″ tall? That’s something like 72 feet tall in my figures’ scale. Gulliver vs. Lilliputians.
