Display Case Ideas?

Postby Cptn_Snuggles » Tue Apr 12, 2011 2:24 pm

I think I'm going to finally start showing some of my painted miniatures rather then having them collecting dust in cases. Any tips on where to get good and reasonably priced display cases?

Thanks,
BC

That was my best guess. Saw a decently priced one that's about 16" square for $60. Thought that was a decent price.

I bought mine from ikea for like $60.00-$70.00 with a light. Its probably one of the best deals out there.

The Ikea one is nice for minis, and reasonably priced. It's what I've got in my basement.

I got mine on Craigslist. I got a used Halmark Orniment display case. It's a beast. But it's lit and all glass shelves and a nice sliding door for $100. If you're patient. They come up every so often.
