So, I finally did it, I went and brought a display cabinet for my 40k Armies yesterday.  I did quite a lot of research on what was the best choice, best value for money option, and after many months (seriously) I brought a 1800 x 900 x 450 commercial 6mm toughened glass display cabinet.  I got it from the very helpful guys are Absoe Business Equipment in West End, and it set me back $750.  It was unassembled and I had to use my Ute to get it home from (about 10 min drive from where I live)  It came in two packages and the largest one weighed about 100kgs… so yeah, it was a bit of a struggle getting it off the Ute by myself, but I managed and then set about assembling it.  Being commercial quality its built to last (a key reason why I chose it) all the fittings are robust and the base is seriously strong, with 4 castors on it too so it can be pushed around if I decided to relocate it.  The glass doors slide on ball bearing runners and also are lockable too.  So lets look at the pictures shall we?

So thats it, man cave review done.  I’m pretty happy to see all the models all on display at one place at one time.

As an aside, I’ve been working on the Forge World Realm of Battle Cityscape boards over the past few days, so with any luck I should have an update on them shortly.

Thanks for dropping in

This is the link to my 1st modelling diary at Wargamerau.com.  I collected this army after I’d taken about a 4 yr hiatus from miniature painting and wargaming.  So when I designed the army and painted it, I didnt really have any contact with the wargaming or miniature painting community.  I had no paints, brushes, reference material or minis when I set out on this journey.

My aim was to reproduce in Warhammer 40,000 scale a light Infantry Company, (Brave Company in this instance).  So have 3 Infantry Platoons, a Platoon Head Quarters for each one, and a Company HQ.  In addition to this, I also wanted to have Support Company represented.  Well, the wary bits anyways.  So I made DFSW PL, Anti-Armour PL, Sniper PL, Pioneer PL, Recon PL & Mortar PL, along with CHQ.

Its a great army and a real joy to play with… its since grown in size considerable and is now well over 6000pts fully painted, with more to come.  You can see the evolution of this army uptil now at this link.  From now on though, all additions to this army will be on this site.
