The Shelves are History

More work continues in the game room. Since it's a 'do it yourself' project, it's kind of slow going. The shelves are gone, they are officially a thing of the past. To be perfectly clear, they came out way too easily.

It was very apparent that I had not used long enough dry wall screws to secure them and only the side brackets were holding them in place. Once I popped the shelves up, they literally just slid right out of the wall with little to no resistance. Lesson learned and I thank the Dice Gods immensely for allowing me to escape a catastrophe all these years.

This pile is the last vestige of the work desk, now shunted to a pile in the garage. What do I spy? I spy a zombpocalypse survivor, a Harlequin for Tristan, and Deathwatch Librarian sporting both object-source lighting and non-metal metallics among others.

I don't know why I like taking these pictures but I find some sort of morbid fascination in seeing a lifetime of hobby stuff just heaped in piles and piles upon each other where my car should be instead. It's like a "Where's Waldo" of the gaming world.

Here's a gaggle of completed and painted figs from those shelves. I have a bunch in foam storage as well. They'll return to their display glory soon enough, until then it's off to the garage with ye!


  1. Nice! Can't wait to see the finished project!

  2. Me too! Err, wait.

    Ceiling paint goes on tomorrow.

  3. These photos remind me of all the games, minis and terrain I have either tossed, sold or given away as I've moved around the globe... Which was a lot. I just depressed myself.

  4. Oh no! Mik's Minis is all about uplifting the human soul (and uplifting canine gene sequences). Not depress you!

  5. Don't worry, I'm also inspired to build an incredible man cave next time I move. :)

  6. My neighbor just sunk a whopping 8k into a super-deluxe man cave. There's no gaming stuff, but I'm still incredibly jealous.
