I use duffle bags (~ 4 pockets to keep pieces separated) and 2-3 additional smaller draw string bags inside. A typical duffle bag will hold 5+ Df sets. This works well for me as I can throw a bag over my shoulder and head off to friends house to play. Clean up is easy, I just toss pieces into the corresponding pockets. Although The dwarvitie and paint are nearly indestructible, they are heavy! Whatever option you use remember each set weighs about 5-6 lbs.

Man I feel kinda bad looking at all these elegant storing solutions.

I throw all mine in the tote bags and throw the tote bags in a corner.

Man and considering how much I have used the original Kickstarter set it's amazing that my paint job still looks excellent.

And I have used these tiles a great deal in the past couple of years! Including events where young kids were stacking them up and roughing them up.

And I just dump them back into the tote bags when I am done. No deformed tiles yet.

I've been pretty casual with KS1 and KS2 -- I keep them in bins, and they're just piled up. My kids play with them, and they get handled pretty roughly. And they're fine. They're amazingly durable. Definitely a key virtue of those sets.

KS3 feels VERY different, though. In addition to things that are clearly fragile like the light-up torches and the magnets, the whole set has a larger footprint and that makes me wonder. The streets and floors seem like they could warp if they're not stacked neatly. And I feel like the posts need to be treated carefully, too. If they have problems, the whole set will be largely useless. I also want to make sure the paint doesn't wear off -- it's tough to tell, but it seems like it could be vulnerable, especially on some of the wood floors. Some of my pieces seemed sticky when I unpacked them -- I seem to recall a similar issue with KS2, though, and those have aged well.

Time will tell, I suppose.

I also think KSIII will be harder to store, though I have not given it much thought yet, I am planning to store my floors with posts in them.

I'm not because I'm afraid they will warp with storage and I'll eventually have posts that come out at odd angles. Dunno if this would actually happen or not...

I have most of my Dwarven Forge pieces in plastic tubs like these. Up to three for KSIII already, and I haven't even stored my sewers:

I wish I had room for drawer units that would make everything more accessible, but these do the job at least.

I have 2 Alex Units from IKEA. They just filled up and I need to pick up a third. Pretty sure that will be adequate for the remaining minis' and sewers and streets, and then all of KS4.

Love love love my Alex Units

It turns out that Kickstarter 4 will be a full- scale castle made of Dwarvenite, with built-in Dwaevenite storage to store your other Dwaevenite...

I did not realize that was a life-sized statue of Stefan in the teaser pic. I thought it was a miniature.

He warned you it was going to be expensive.
