Hey, I've seen the pictures here on changes to the counters for Ghost Panzer; I know you can use the Screaming Eagles counters with the Ghost Panzer rules with a little extra math, but instead I was thinking of printing a sheet of stickers to put on my counters (or maybe making replacement counters, although they may be distinguishable from decoys). Is there already a file or image which I could use for this?

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

And didn't I see mention of replacement counters in one of the upcoming expansions? Not that I want to wait that long.

If WG will publish a correct size image we can print on sticky paper, could they also sell 7/8th blank counters to put it on? And...if so.. how much more would it be to just publish the counters?

NOT complaining! I've got two copies of SE and have had my money's worth already, even if I had to ditch everything save the maps. But I think this series has legs and GP will encourage more people to try it, people who may be able to find a used copy of SE and are going to want to play with the new counters.

Or heck, just reprint SE as a 2nd edition with new counters, rules and charts and I'll happily pay $45. But do it soon, build momentum!

My hope is to post the files for replacement counters for people who want them now and then include replacement counters in the next expansion. We'll see.

I would buy an expansion that just had corrected counters, and an updated rulebook and player aid.

"Now" is good, ha ha; I'm hoping to update my counters one way or another in the next week (before BGG.CON). Whether printed replacement counters are included in a future game, or eventually available for purchase separately, either way is fine with me.

Whenever replacement counter appear, I'll get them into the Vassal module. Someone ping me when they become available in case I miss the announcement.

I second that. I would gladly pay for such an expansion. Heck I would pay just for the counters and print the other stuff out myself if need be.

Sincerely

A big fan

There are now 48 hours remaining until I find out whether BoB will fit in my suitcase for BGG.CON.

But fortunately it will be a new expansion plus SE replacement counters.

I hope that in whatever form we will see the published replacement counters they will include the new sustained fire/flanking fire and Unconfirmed Kill markers so you can play BoB:SE with the new rules without having to borrow markers from another game in the series.

Good point. I am guessing that if WG produce counters, they will want to properly update all their current inventory of unsold Screaming Eagles and that would mean including all counter types. The GP counter sheet is a stand alone sheet, so one imagines that it would have been 'relatively cheap' just to have a whole bunch more of them printed off.
