PaperTech III: The Search for Cheap Counters
« on: 19 July 2016, 12:57:44 »
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.

Bedwyr's original set, from which I derived inspiration for my own, has been hosted on Merdon Pryde's site for years if you prefer those (http://www.pryderockindustries.com/dl_boards.php#CTR)

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).

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

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

I use the little plastic card stands that used to come with the box sets. Conventional card stock fits fine

Something like this though I’m positive they can be found for cheaper

the images from here would be cool to have on your counters. they're mostly pre-labeled, too.

W.

FYI, due to reasons these aren't available from DriveThruRPG anymore, but a Google search found them at a place called Cardboard Warriors and the Robotech RPG Tactics Wiki.

(Side note: "Cardboard Warrior" is going to be my new nickname for the Patron PatrolMech.)

Edit: Cardboard Warrior redirected to RPGNow, which didn't have the files either, for same reasons DTRPG doesn't have them any longer.

You could also use micro binder clips like these: https://www.amazon.com/Officemate-Micro-Binder-Clips-31030/dp/B003U4U3YQ. I'll leave it up to you if you want to remove the clip's wires when the 'Mech is mounted.

Be the Loremaster:

Battletech transport rules take a very feline approach to moving troops in a combat zone: If they fits, they ships.

You bought the box set and are ready to expand your BT experience. Now what? (Thanks Sartis!)

This is, without hesitation, the most useful thread on the site.

As always, job well done, Sartris!

That's high praise, considering some of the fan-produced output around here

In other news, Child™ took an extra nap this afternoon so I am able to finally bring the people vehicles. I did 3039 as a proof of concept and will be adding the others as they are completed

Brilliant!
My thanks to you for the counters and to Child™ for the timely nap.

As the 2nd KS shipments make their way across the deep blue sea, I've returned to these for a few updates

An updated Unseen/Classic/Phoenix/Phoenix II (hereby known as UCPP2 for reasons that should be obvious) version is in the offing and will replace the old set once all of the art is released (ie October / November). It's more or less done and requires about a half dozen more lineart upgrades

In the same vein, I'll do a stand-alone release for the KS art.

Since most of the RecGuide art is going to be folded into the KS pack or the UCPP2 set, the ~28-30 RG debutants will get their own set

I'm going to venture into battlearmor and protos in the near future. Unsure how I'm going to package those

I've also acquired the old BT font from Sarna (I find some buried treasure every time I tool around in their files section) and am in the process of replacing the other military-esque spray-paint stencil font I was using (AR Destine). I'm through 3055 (the unseen one I'm not bothering with because it's getting replaced soonish).

Could I trouble you to link that most excellent font, good sir?  Clearly, my search-fu is inferior to yours...  :)

Ok, was just thinking of getting some of these going for my planetary Garrison mooks. Very glad to see such a solid set together!

I have a mostly complete unseen/reseen/new art classic ready to go as soon as the last four pieces of art drop.

The GoAC/Kickstarter art and Rec Guide originals will see some kind of compellation depending on how CGL chooses to package it in the print version of the recguies

with the completion of the RecGuide series, I have updated the unseen/classic/reseen counters to include the new art from the kickstarter.

Even with the reinforcements box from the Kickstarter, these are still a hugely useful resource.

Thanks for continuing the support!

These definitely beat reverse folding my old mechs and writing in pencil. :) I've noticed there's a copy-paste error in the TRO Succession Wars, the row that starts with the Awesome is labelled incorrectly, it has the same labels as the Wolverine row.

Question to the Paper Counter Crowd… does anyone have experience using Photoshop or any Photoshop clones to add color to these? I have what I am tentatively describing as “An Idea”.
