Miniatures Ideas for miniatures storage

Hello All,

Would anyone be able to recommend any good products that can be used to store WizKids D&D miniatures? I've found a number of companies that offer cases built for Warhammer or Star Wars products, but nothing specific to D&D minis. I'm not able to build something from scratch - i'm all thumbs basically.

Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Regards,
R

I use Plastic Parts Storage Hardware and Craft Cabinets from Akro Mills (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000LDH3JC/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1). You can get the 64 drawer cabinet for under $30 and free 2-day shipping (in the US at least). It is create for storing minis, pogs, markers etc. I can pull the drawers out and stack them when getting ready for a game. I DM from home. These are not something you would want to travel with.

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to travel with minis and other DM tools, look for deals at Home Depot, Walmart, etc. on large fishing tackle boxes—Plano has some good options. E.g.: https://thelearningdm.com/2011/05/24/how-i-learned-to-stay-organized-the-dd-box/

DM David also has some examples of how to use Bento Boxes and portal storage cases with removable dividers: http://dmdavid.com/tag/photo-guide-to-dungeon-masters-tools-2/

Hey, I second the below:

Plano Stowaway tend to be good. You can often get them in stacks of 4 on Amazon, and are cheap. And modular enough that you can customize the areas. And if you need to bring one or two, they're easy enough to transport.

Now that I'm almost at I-don't-give-a-s**t age, I thought it would be funny to carry a kitchen cabinet drawer full of minis to a convention. Just bungee-cord it to my roller bag.

Just to mess with folks. That and hand out graph paper at the start of the game. :)
 
Hey, MNblockhead your Idea ain’t bad. But for me, I would like to make a custom storage area for the D&D or any other material that I wanna store or carry around. In that way I don’t lose any amount of space and all my things would be in a compatible storage. And for this I have a good service that I had been using for the past few years, the best builders of custom cabinet in Newmarket. They provide an assistance to all the sort of cabinetry as per the needs and necessities of the customer. They are customer friendly and help understand the need and also suggest better options if available. They don’t force their idea into us but incorporates our idea into theirs.

Yeah, the plastic storage bins are a must have. I've been collecting for a while now, so I actually have my bins labeled by monster types, so there's Humanoids, Plant Things, Giants, Ogres & Trolls, PCs & NPCs, Flying Things, Dragons, Abominations & Constructs, Undead, etc. That's just for the plastic monsters of course, any metal ones are in a padded case.

I've recently got into the habit of organizing individual sessions into gallon zip lock bags, or sandwich bags. I tend to use a lot of miniatures and it really helps keep stuff organized at the table for quick retrieval. I'll lump props I'm going to use into the same bag.
