Just wanted to see how people store their counters for FH. I have BoH and HotB which I use a GMT counter tray which fits in well with the other parts. But the box for FH is much thiner and there is no way of fitting the GMT counter tray in with all the other parts

For the first edition of FH:V it would be a pretty tight squeeze to get a counter tray in there. Haven't seen the box for 2nd Ed.

Yeah, that's what I do. I have bought tackle boxes for counters, and then I strap them to the boxes uses those thick, blue, cross-shaped rubber bands some stores sell.

I just checked and my box lid sits about a quarter inch high, however everything is neat in the GMT counter tray.

Thanks guys, Mark is there any reason for FH being packed in a smaller box than BoH & HotB as it has the same amount of bits in the box, is it just a pricing thing?

We've been using those boxes for a while now. Same size for FH2, NW68' Into the Breach, etc. Sorry.

No need to apologize, was just interested why a smaller box was used instead of the larger one that BoH and HotB use. Anyway the lock n load series has become my favourite tactical game it fills so many gaps that I have found that exist in other games.

(any plans of releasing an expansion with winter terrain boards that can be used with all fronts, love to see a winter war expansion with the finns and russians)

Any chance some of these boxes could be made available?

Blank but same size...dosn't have to be put together either.

Was thinking making my zip lock packs into a boxed edition.

Dark July, Not one Step back, similar titles.

Thanks for posting those sites on consimworld, but i think i will stick with the GMT counter trays as they seem to be a lower profile than the containers. Just means the lid dosnt sit all the way down.

Do you find the GMT tray slots too narrow for the 5/8" counters?

I found all the MMC, SMC and weapons counters fit in perfectly but the WT and vehicle counter have to lay flat in the tray. Dosnt matter too much as there are many more smaller counters than the WT and vehicles. I have all the BoH, S&B, and noville all in the same counter tray.

All my FH counters are in their own tray, but still room if lnl do a 2nd ed re print of anzac attack.
