One possible way to improve the cards could be little "checkboxes" for each DP, so if we wanted we could track damage on the cards with a dry-erase marker instead of having markers on the table. Just a thought.

That's a great idea, at least for single model squads ! But how could we make it work for let's say a squad of odin walkers ?

Hmm - I suppose possibly, there could be multiple groups of checkboxes?

I think when you have squads like that, tracking them on the cards isn't going to work, because you're not going to have a way of knowing which unit the DP is attached to. So it probably wouldn't be a catch all solution. I was mainly thinking that for at least a few units, it might be able to keep the board a bit cleaner. But some people might not like having the inconsistency, and would rather just be able to look at a unit on the board and know if it's damaged.

So I don't know if it would be worth adding damage tracking or not.

Just noticed the Resistance Unit PDF is missing the card back.

Great work there!

I don't think dp on the card will help, as you won't be able to relate that to a specific model on the table.

Have you tried a sideways disposition of the card text? That way the font could be larger. My vision is fine, but I have some friends on the 40+ that need bigger fonts.

Yes, the Black Ocean cards were really nice. Pity they were never updated.

Cheers

Perhaps this isn't necessary, but a card for the ejected Coyote commander pod would be nice.

Going through the cards, adding the special abilities text to them... really looking forward to printing these out and using them - thanks so much for doing this!

Wow! These cards are invaluable! Awesome job! There seem to be countless hours of computer work behind them!

Thanks so much for sharing this with us. I appreciate it greatly.

I'll probably try to gather the ones for my armies in a single PDF file with as many cards per page as possible, so it can be taken to any printer right away.

Thanks again

@Abrusio: What "special text" are you referring to? Can you give an example? I'm a bit flummoxed... :?

I do believe he's talking about the text for the special rules. ;)
