Title: PaperTech III: The Search for Cheap Counters
Post by: Sartris on 19 July 2016, 13:57:44
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).

Cheers,

W.

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

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

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 (http://robotech-rpg-tactics.wikia.com/wiki/Official_Paper_Minis).

(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 (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.

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
