Some of those are very nice.

I think the information counters (DM etc) should retain their original colour schemes as there's a link with the colours associated with the phases of a turn - blue denotes the Rally Phase etc.

I think the squad counters, with three identical images look a little odd. Better to use three different poses, like some of you other counters.

Also, the stug counter should indicate that Stugs are small. The official counters have the front armour factor printed on a white circle.

A last point - useful to include the smoke exponents and assault fire and spraying fire underlines.

You do have some nice counters but I have to agree Eoin about the three identical soldiers; brings back the bad memories associated with bringing home and opening GI: Anvil of Victory for the first time.

Regarding the Martian war machine I happen to be partial to George Pal’s on screen version.

Nice effort. The ASL counters could benefit from current state of art.

Do you take special requests? I would really like some counters to use in the Advancing Fire Phase (AFPh) of ASL to indicate units that fire therein. They could simply read: "Adv Fire" and be orange text on white background to match the Prep Fire counters that are also removed at the end of the AFPh. I consider such counters to have been a lack from the very get-go of the game's design. I use Prep Fire counters to perform the same task.

Would you make us a sheet of those?

Hello Eddy,

If you pick up Crucible of Steel from Bounding Fire those counters are included. You also get defensive fire counters indicating SW only or Squad only fire has been used.

Greg,
CoS from BF costs $125 + shipping. That's a lot for a few desired info counters.whistle

Hopefully somebody from MMP or Bounding Fire will read this post and take the hint…
