I do not yet own AtB. I have SoS and plan on getting Poland too. I know the 3rd release will be including new counters for AtB, but my question is will that be the only way to get an updated AtB or could I just wait to buy it and get the new counters then?

I already own AtB, but was wondering the same thing myself. I was also wondering if when the next "batch" of AtB games were printed would they have the updated rules to match the SoS game?

I remember reading somewhere that Poland will also contain the new AtB counters.

Yep, I said that.

But does anyone know if future printings of AtB will update the counters?

I suspect that would not happen until the original print-run is completely sold through.

To the best of my knowledge, the components will be updated on the next printing. Since Uwe is now using a different manufacturer now than he did with Awakening the Bear's original printings, it only makes sense anyway, as it wouldn't really require more work on Uwe's part to make it happen.

When that will happen though, I have no idea.

Thanks. I will wait then for this second printing and be content with SoS for now and everything else coming down the pipe.

To clarify, if we already own AtB, purchasing Poland will net a complete set of updated counters for use in AtB?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that purchasing Poland will net you updated army counters for use in AtB... the other counters are not included (damage chits, road blocks, etc).

I also only own SoS. My plan to complete the AtB set was to buy the map boards from the academygames.com site for AtB, get the upgraded AtB army chits from the Poland game, and use the support counters (damage chits, etc) from SoS. I think the only things that I am missing are the berserk damage counter to infantry and the road block counter.

If there are any mapboard packs left at academygames.com, then that is a feasible way to finish the set without waiting for a reprint.

This is correct. But all of the non-unit original AtB counters are still completely serviceable.
