I hope they aren't going to screw up the counter sheets cutting with the reprint.

A copy of Europe and Med are both sitting on the shelf on my FLGS in Waterloo, if you want a copy now.

Comments made by GMT at the time of the 2nd print run mean that there is no reason to expect that mistake to be repeated. I certainly hope not because I've held off getting a replacement copy of CCE precisely to avoid getting these 'infamous' counters.

The counters were cut with connection points to the sheet on the sides of the counters as well as the corners. When pulled from the sheets the counters have a 'bump' on the sides that is difficult if not impossible to trim. The first edition, Med and the battle packs that provided counters were only attached at the corners making trimming very easy. You can see the difference in some of the image files.

At GMT headquarters I purchased spare counter sheets for the three base game nationalities and received the counters with side-attachments to the frame.

They are not bad-looking. The 'questionable' German HMGs and Rifle squad counters are integrated into my counter set with the original counters, and in play I never notice that some of them were differently attached to the frame.

In this photo:

both of the German squad counters have the side attachments, while all of the other counters do not. You need to look very closely to notice the little nibs.

Mind you, I never 'pull', but always use an exacto knife to cut my counters from the frames.
