ave you considered re-enforcing the drawers? I've had minor issues here and there and I'm concerned for the future as they get more stuffed!
I haven't reinforced the drawers.

I had a little trouble with sagging initially when I put the densest, heaviest stuff at the center of the large drawers.

I solved that by moving the heavy, densest-packed stuff (straight KS1 walls, floor tiles, etc.) to the sides, fronts, and backs of the drawers, and putting the lighter, less-densely-packed stuff (corner pieces, decor, doors,...) in the center of the drawers

Painted in the hidden channel on bottom side of walls are windows in blue and arrow slits with two orange spots. I'm planning on painting LED with yellow and Magnetic with silver.

I bought a pair of those. It was an excellent solution- except that they will be pretty much full once my KS5 arrives.
Yeah, I think I have a second one in the horizon. Have you considered re-enforcing the drawers? I've had minor issues here and there and I'm concerned for the future as they get more stuffed!

Thats an excellent idea I might have to steal!

Very Nicely organised Arravis - do you know what sets you have stored in those pictures ?
That's KS1-KS5, well, only the tiny bit of KS5 that's come in. KS1 I painted myself, you can tell by the fact that its much lighter than the few KS5 pieces in there. It was by design, I wanted something that could double as castle pieces, before the Castle KS was even a twinkle!

On the lower drawers there's also the Path of Osiris kickstarter as well. Also self-painted, but that one was much, much easier!

There are also some miscellaneous stuff in there that I've collected over the years, mostly self-painted... if you have a specific inquiry on one, let me know.

I know the cardboard boxes are not optimal, but I'm just showing my sorting system.
Painted in the hidden channel on bottom side of walls are windows in blue and arrow slits with two orange spots. I'm planning on painting LED with yellow and Magnetic with silver. Standard walls are top up. Sorry they are not all painted, it might show a bit different when they are. ;)

Anyway, see here -

Thought you guys might appreciate the details of my storage setup. I use a
8-drawer Martha Stewart flats-file cabinet.

Here is an idea I have not seen in the Forum.
I plan to store my walls upsidedown categorized by Tudor and Stone. But these will be the Windows stored downside-up :lol: and I will mark the Magnetic Walls with White or Lava Orange accross whole bottom. Anyway you can see the concept in this picture. ;)

Any thoughts?
I like it. Currently I keep my city walls grouped in clear plastic bins. I alternate the groups, one group placed top up, the next bottom up, etc. to keep similar pieces sorted together. That way I can just pull one piece to see what is in each group. Your way seems better, assuming I recall what each color designates.

Thought you guys might appreciate the details of my storage setup. I use a
8-drawer Martha Stewart flats-file cabinet. Considering the price, its worked pretty well so far and I've been happy with it. It can hold a vast an unreasonable amount of Dwarven Forge.

For the small fiddly-bits I use Iris boxes with organizer trays and the other are cloth organizer that I can't recall where I got them.

Anyway, hopefully this is helpful for people still looking for storage solutions.

I have got spoilt. I had a huge DwF Wall - the South wall of my Kriegzimmer gaming room.

Google looked up 'Kriegzimmer gaming room' thinking it was some firm that designed and built custom gaming rooms and found pictures of Nerf guns on racks and this on Kickstarter:

"

#DW - yes, but I HAVE the map cases, and i don't need at least 1/3 of them, so for me its efficient. Besides, my Kriegzimmer (war room) has no floor space left to add more cabinets...
