This weekend I went to IKEA on a special wargamer mission. I bought two ALEX drawer units on wheels. They are 67 cm wide, 48 cm deep and 66cm high and have six drawers, three low and three higher, and are supplied with small wheels (that seems to be called castors). It’s 32 kg per package, so you probably need a car.
They were easy to assemble, and I installed the wheels on one, and placed the other on top, and secured it with jointing plates. After that I took a trip to the local arts-shop Panduro Hobby and bought 2mm rubber mats. The mats just needed some trimming, and they fit into the drawers. Having them will avoid having the miniatures sliding about in the drawers when I open or close them.
The result: at last a decent storage place for my minis. As they multiplied they got more and more crammed into whatever drawers, boxes and shelves I had.
Now I can have them all in one place, sorted so I can find them easily, and I will have space for all gaming paraphernalia and some terrain also.
The drawers are perfect as they are just the right height.
Highly recommended, and good for our trade balance too if you buy them J
