Dr Cooke, in the Games Room with a .....Chest of Drawers

So I got this chest of drawers from work on Thursday. It was being used to store microscope samples. Potentially very useful specimens and cost a lot of money to collect and make. However they are very old, mainly of coal (a research field we no longer pursue) and there were no labels so it will take somebody at least a year to catalogue and evaluate the samples. Universities have a lot of samples in that state and in some ways it's shame but research moves on
So a rejig of the samples into other drawers freed up this 15 drawer cabinet.


Each draw is 50mm high and will hold 187 infantry. Cavalry and guys with big spears are a problem but they can lie down or stay in their original file boxes



I have now increased my storage capacity by 34.1% (ish) and have loads of space to buy more toys. 
"O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
Good luck to all in the challenge and a happy Christmas and successful new year
