Almost done, just the board to go.
Cards and mats are printed on 26lb paper and laminated, wood tokens are laser cut and dyed. Soldiers are plastic cubes.

I did have a raised fist icon for the sympathy tokens, but something was wrong with my vector for that image, so those are just blank circles. Oh well, close enough.








If all goes well, I'll do the board tomorrow and give it a play on Tuesday night.

For a moment there I thought I had missed a KS update about the project being delivered several months earlier than scheduled.

Incidentally, these dyes work nicely for dying natural wood for game pieces:

I use something like a teaspoon - tablespoon of water and use a q-tip to put just a little dye in, plenty for small tokens. I used the same q-tip to stir it up and apply it to the wood.

But wear gloves. My hands are splotched with colors.

Incredible work!

Did you laser cut the cards? If not, what do you use to get the perfect cut?

Used a circular cutter and straight edge, then used one of these on the corners:

I love this little thing, rounded corners add that extra touch.

Board complete... not the best job, only bifold (glue stick to mount it to scored foamcore), but serviceable.



Here's the board with a few bits on it:



Closeup of bits on board:



All the components (less 2d4), ready to try out on game night on Tuesday!
