PaperTech III: The Search for Cheap Counters
« on: 19 July 2016, 13:57:44 »
every couple years i'll get pinged about my papertech counters and never really get around to updating them. as luck would have it, i have some free time in between semesters and motivation to get the job done. Bedwyr's original set has been hosted on Merdon Pryde's site for years if you prefer those (http://www.pryderockindustries.com/dl_boards.php#CTR)

Below are a series of links for paper counters for use with BattleTech (and maybe Alpha Strike if you're so inclined). Provided are both the PDF and Word .docx. The doc files allow you to copy and paste counters to a new document for on-demand printing. I'll add more as I finish them. Note: All unseen and phoenix designs have been moved to their own file.

All Unseen & Phoenix Designs (and eventually Classics when we get all the art)

These look excellent! However, some of the figures have the wrong names. Like the Linebacker being listed as a Hatamoto-Chi and the Naga as a Victor. Small things like that are bound to slip through on such an undertaking, however. Nice work!  O0

Many thanks Sartris. You are bringing back fond memories of my youth, playing BT with 2nd Ed boxset and the Reinforcements boxset standup cardboard counters :)

All modern TROs are more or less done - I still have to add the 3085 Phoenix design art to the Unseen and Phoenix collection. I'll probably also do a master XTRO list and one for random stuff from sourcebooks not found in mainline TROs.

Great work. I think the only problem is that from what I'm seeing these are 'Mech only, and given how often people talk about fielding multiples of tanks that could be a bit of a problem, even worse is on the BA front, particularly the Clans during REVIVAL

i've thought about vehicles. we'll see how much motivation i have when i finish mechs.

if you want multiples, copy/paste to a new document. using the doc lets you simply click on what you want and copy it wholesale

Sorry, I wasn't asking you to put multiples in a document but given how people often talk about deploying multiple of a vehicle the ability to create paper counters yourself is useful. Also applies to Bugs

Gents,

I know this isn't specifically BattleTech, especially lately, but some may still find some interest in these free paper counter downloads:

http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/189303/Paper-Game-Pieces-UEDF-Wave-2-for-Robotech-RPG-Tactics

There are 4 - UEDF 1 and 2 (2 linked), and Zentraedi 1 and 2 (you'll find the links in the "People who bought this ..." section).

Cheers,

Sartris, is this your work?

yup. 100% MS Word. I had extracted the artwork from official record sheets for printing from MML so that part was already done.

Hi. I would usually hate to necro a thread. However, I am wondering if these are still available somewhere to download?

Thanks in advance.

Clarification: Vorpalstar probably means the dropbox links are not working. The 3 I tried were dead.

Awesome! These are exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. I look forward to if you get the chance to make some vehicle ones. Thanks a lot for re-uploading, and have a great weekend!

i've updated the unseen/phoenix sheets as there was a major labeling error on the IS Phoenix designs.
