OK, this may seem a trivial point to some...but looking at the various shots of the game's counters so far; there appears to be 2 'versions' of the armour units.
One set has a top down view, while another is a side view.
So, here is my 2 cents...I HOPE the game will ship with top down view armour counters. I just can't seem to wrap my head around the side view combined with a requirement to have facing.
Anyway, the rest of the game components look great, and the game system has really peaked my interest. Like some have said, a bit like the other recent choices for tactical games out there, but with some real nice differences....in particular, the game is not driven by cards (yay). The cards in this game are simply assets, etc to be played (or not) by the players.
So, designers...if you still have input...lets make those armour counters a top down view! That would 'guarantee' my purchase.

I think there's a discussion in the Fighting Formations file on Consimworld on this. I think the final counters will be side view, but you'll have to take a look at the discussion (as usual with Consimworld, you'll have to leaf through pages of banter before you get to the pertinent points).

AFIAK the final counters will be top down view.

At least those were Mr. Jensen's last words on the subject in the CSW folder quite a while ago.

The side views you see are my playtest artwork.

The top view you see is a sample of the final artwork.
