So with the quarantine, I've been going through my Flames of War collection to make sure everything is in the correct box, troops are all sorted, and that all my figures and vehicles are properly magnetized, in anticipation of a likely re-location.

This morning I completed the first bit: my Flames of War armies. They are all now magnetic, sorted and properly labeled.

Outstanding job. I know that I need to get my stuff organized better than it is.

That is pretty cool. I cleaned up my game table from all of the terrain building I had been doing. It will be nice to set a game up for the first time in years.

@Gear Pilot:

I just use Powerpoint.

I make a text box with a border, then steal images from the web. I can crop and resize them right in Powerpoint. Then I print them on full sheet labels, peel and stick.

Easy peasy.

Once ou have a "template" they take no time at all.

What is your source for those boxes?

I get them in bulk from Uline. The big ones are 12 x 18 and the small are 9x12. The 12 x 18 come in 2, 3 or 4" depths. I'm a bit obsessive about these kinds of things.
