Left a game set up by the window. Returning to it after a few days I saw that the Americans were becoming German.

They failed their Light Exposure Task Check.
You could probably sell those on EBay now and make a fortune.
Scary. I always leave my games setup next to a window.

What's more shocking is you're getting decent weather up there...

I think they are preparing for a covert mission!

Had to look him up. Thanks for bringing him to my attention.

All joking aside, this might be reason enough for me to spray a quick thin coat of UV resistant clear to my next sheet of counters before punching them out.

Kinda wish I had done that from the start now...

I've had a game of Fighting Withdrawal setup by the window for almost a week now. I haven't noticed any signs of deterioration so far. In fact, one talented Russian squad who migrated over from SK1 to Beyond Valor seems to have developed an even deeper, luscious shade of brown than usual.

It seems that the Finns and Russians are more robust and resistant to the extreme sunlight, which is not surprising considering the hardships their actual physical counterparts went through in the war.

I would perhaps try only shielding the US Green and Conscript portions of the OOB at the start to test out my theory.

===============

Just noticed that it was US 747s that were fading, so scratch my "counter toughness" theory.
