1/3000 scale Soviet counters

Postby Poi » Fri Feb 16, 2007 9:33 am

Using images from Warships of WW2, I've made some 1/3000 scale stand up counters for the Red Navy.

Grab the pdf from here. (Thanks to CourtJester for hosting them.)

Hahaha... you did make them to scale... cool.

They may seem odd but what you do is fold them along the center line and the fold out the two flaps withe name on so that you can see the silhouettes of the ship on either side... makes for a lightly more interesting game if one player has models and the other does not...

Any plans to do similar sorts of counters for other fleets? Maybe some Colour ones too? These are a really great idea :D

Not a great deal of point in colour, as grey ships would look like blobs in this size.

Next fleet will be Kriegsmarine, including Z-Plan. Give me a few days though. Landlord's inspection on Thursday, parents visiting on Fri/Sat/Sunday.
