Hi,
I discovered Band of Brothers by buying the 2nd edition of Ghost Panzer.
The system is really excellent, the best one for me at the tactical level (I tried others like CC and CoH without comparing it to ASL, of course).
On the other hand, I found that the counters, which does not have the same size with sides that are not straight and symmetrical, could be improved.
The aesthetic vision is important, in particular at the tactical level.
I wonder if it would be better for Worthington games to print beautiful die-cut and easypunch counters with round corners (like hexasim's games or the last Hearts and Minds at Compass games).

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

I'm always up for improving the component quality.

FWIW: In my experience, most games with die-cut rounded counters have side nubs, which are harder to get rid of, so I prefer traditional corner nubs, which are easy to clip off.

The most important is to have counters of the same size and symmetrical.
We agree on the essential.

I'm not. I've already got a pretty fair investment in this series and plan to buy everything else that comes out. But I want compatible components, if a future title comes with a different counter or map style I'll have to choose between having mis-matched components or rebuying the entire thing (if that option is even offered)...I'd rather not be in that position

No worries. I didn't mean to imply that the series would be changing because there are no plans for it to.

As I have gotten older, I have just become a sucker for top notch components. It is why I bought an Oregon corner rounder. thumbsup

If you have counters that are misaligned you should contact Worthington Games and ask for replacements.

Random image from here on BGG:
As you can tell the printing isn't 100% centered, but it's definitely all on the counter and the counters are symmetrical. If yours look different I'm sure Worthington will replace them promptly.

And I agree with russ; thumbsdown for side-nubs

I may not have been lucky, but the counters, after being cut and ''corrected'', are ready.
Unlike the Montana grizzly, I do not have the entire collection yet, but I intend to buy it. I hope not to be disappointed at the next purchase.
