Suggestions needed for clever Gaming tables with storage solutions.

Hi all

With my application for converting my garage into a gaming room underway (calling it the Aett!!), my thoughts are turning to what I would like to see in said room. 

[Not mine but just lovely]

Now as you may know, I do like a busy battlefield with lots of troops and super Heavies (Titans especially), so size needs to be taken into consideration. Ideally I would like a table that could field a pair of 6x4 boards next to one another for super mega battles like below:

But also be moveable enough to run two simultaneous 6x4 games:

I was toying with the idea of having two moveable 4x4 cabinets on wheels so that I could always just have a 6x4 board sitting on top of each cabinet, or should I feel like it, just 1 8x4 board surface for standard games. So I am pretty much set on the idea of these cabinets (which have storage capabilities to house my Zone Mortalis and regular Realm of Battle tiles+Scenery. Has any one seen any cabinets or designs like this out there? Or do you have an alternative suggestion?
