Having the figs in display cases probably wouldn’t impact my gaming much, but if I had a one room for gaming and to hold all of my terrain, figs, rules, etc, that would be helpful. There would be a table in the center and shelving around the walls filled with the stuff. The problem is that I need something on the order of a 30′ x 20′ room.
Right now, figs are spread across two over-stuffed rooms and terrain in those, plus another room, and the garage. Ssetting up games can be a slow and tedious process.
I’m back up to probably in the range of 16000 figs, and display cases wouldn’t be an efficient method of storing the figs, with too much space lost to allow viewing of the figs in the case.
