Has anyone clipped the counters for FF? Some of the symbols seem to be a little too close to the corners for me.

I've clipped all mine with a pair of scale modelling side cutters and they look great. If you're clipping enough to catch the symbols, then you're clipping too much anyway.

Dive in and get it done soldier!

I had one sheet where printing was slightly offset and I clipped it anyways using the C4. Some redundant information might get lost, but you'll still be able to tell the platoons apart.

A standard C4 cut is too deep for the FF:GD counters IMO, for reasons already mentioned. I taped some thin card to the inside of my C4 to adjust the cutting depth. Of course this meant I ended up investing in a new C4 because it was easier than stripping off the tape, but that means I've now got shallow and deep cutting C4s.

I was able to use my C4 unmodified with great results.

One of my counter sheets was significantly shifted, but GMT replaced it right away. I never tried clipping the shifted counters; I don't think it would have worked well.

Same here. I used the C4 as is and have very good results. No vital information was lost on the corners and the chits look so much better.
