The Big Cleanup

For the past fifteen years I've had a dedicated Wargaming room in the basement next to the garage. This is where I game and store my stuff - my understanding wife lets me have a painting table upstairs.

Coming back from the ETC I knew I had to do something about the space as it is full with the accummulated shit of 15+ years. There is so much crap in the room plus armies and systems that  I haven't touched for 5-10 years. I decided that a lot of this doesn't need to be readily accessible.

So yesterday the big clean-up started. When Hagen called around for coffee he was roped into helping me transport:

  • 10 metal toolboxes of 15mm DBM armies
  • 9 GW cases containing 40k figures
  • Sabol Army Transport "Division" and "Motor Pool" cases
out of the room and into the void under the house. 

Later in the evening I started on the bookshelves. Into a big storage bin went all the old Warhammer rules and Army Books plus the same for 40k. 

Tonight I start on models. I have boxes of bits, unbuilt models, stuff that needs repairing - and stuff that will just get binned. I went to local supermarket at lunch and picked up boxes of zip-locked bags, reusable plastic containers to bundle the stuff up and store in a 60l plastic bin. 

The upshot of this is freeing up space so that I have cabinets to store armies and terrain more effectively. 

I'll post pictures later in the week of progress.

  1. Hey Pete, don't bin any Warhammer or wargaming related stuff! Bring it to the Kapiti Wargames Club's Swop Meet in October ! Your trash is probably someone else's treasure!
