I have my squads and weapons but now I need to find them a barracks. What is the best trays to buy in the uk? I have seen all counters stored in their module box which I think I'd cool. Also do you label? I mean you can see the counters...

Raaco. But&Q have a handy box set for about £40. You then need A75 and A78 trays but that should hold a complete ASL set as long as it is only 1 of each module.

Derek Ritter of Ritter Krieg fame is looking into a deal to get RAACO into the states, maybe hold off I hear that the price for one handy case with 4 boxes and a selection of A75/78 trays are approx. $130.

Thank you for your kind replies Gentlemen. I have checked out the link by Jazz - label layout looks like heaven - I assume that the layout is the same as the trays themselves?
I have looked online but seem to be rolling boxes. I'm off to double one with Primemover soon so don want to rock up with a loose box of counters - that won't make me too many friends : )

No need Ollie, cheers. I've got the orders. Got one drawer set and 16 trays (8 of each) just to see.
I'll print out the labels jazz sent me then see how it goes. I should be at least looking like a Bona fide player even if I am a total cluster!

The labels are sized to match RAACO A75 and A78 inserts.

Check out the article I wrote for which you will also find a link in the description of the labels and pictures. And note, that the file for download at Texas ASL Club for the labels is superior as it is in Excel format there (impossible here at GS). The Excel file you can edit or expand to meet your personal needs & preferences while the PDF here is merely a documentation/proof of concept.

Cheers,
von Marwitz

Finally worked out the right ratio of the two different trays. These Raacos are top quality, built to last.

The Russians: no labels yet. (TK numbers for ordnance et al)IMG_0179.JPG

IMG_0180.JPG And you only need 4 of these trays and 12 others to make 16 for each storage tray (if that makes sense)
As you can see ELR, battle hardening and casualty reduction are no problems here

So thanks to Ollie for pointing me in the right direction and Von Maritz for the labels

Note the some KVs are sharing the same garage - with those same marks but have AA.

And yes, I will clip them (nail clippers) in due course
