In my view, shipping priority should be in accordance with order in which invoices were paid, and thus those who lost the time value of their money for the longest period of time would receive their product sooner.
You don't STOP losing the time value of money just because you receive your product sooner. The day you pay Footstep is the day when you convert your the time value of that money to Footstep's time value of that money.

I think the point that the poster is making is that your “utility” doesn’t start until you receive the product. His logic is (I think) “first to incur cost should be first to enjoy benefit”.

This I can understand and agree on had that been the contract made.

If am the one who paid first, you all have to wait til my Snipers get here ..muhahahahaja

I'm happy regardless. I was just saying.... Fact is, Footsteps got them all shipped in an incredibly short period of time for a one-man operation.

Yes, that's what I meant. And I intended it to apply after proofreaders (and reviewers) received theirs (since their proofreading (and reviewing) time is a form of payment in economic terms. All that said, I don't feel strongly about it and I'm happy either way. I was just responding to the idea that those who placed a preorder first should have priority over all.

I've created counter storage box covers for each nationality in the Broken Ground Design counter set (plus KMT and Japanese) and uploaded them to the ASL resource page here on GameSquad. I'd posted some of them in jpeg on Facebook a few days ago and got multiple requests to make them available for use by others, but posted them here because Facebook doesn't accept PDFs. Here are some previews in JPEG so you know what they look like (though the PDF are much higher quality).

I saw some of these posted on FB, but hadn't realized you were inspired by my selection of counters. Very nice work!
I’m getting ready to clip and store them all, so I decided to do covers for some of the new nationalities you made, like the Free French. Now that I have your instruction sheet, sounds like I need to make separate Partisan covers for east, west, and Balkans.

For what type of containers are these sized - RAACO or Plano or other?

The Partisans are one full sheet of 1/2" counters per "theatre", plus a full sheet of 5/8" counters for "Tito's tanks" (plus two Pudels for the Warsaw Uprising). That's one each for East & West, and two sheets for Balkans. Not sure they qualify for separate containers.

Raaco is 337 by 278mm external dimensions. I'd lose a little for the edges but not very much.

Punched my OBA shots last night.
The Zerkers are next then to do raaco labels so I can sort in advance.

Will the Thai army be included? BFP and MMP seem to have left it out. I know it could be included with the Axis minors.

Actually BFP has the Thai army covered in B&J. They use the existing Axis Minor counters along with about a half sheet of 5/8" counters including Japanese Ha-Go tanks in AxMi Green, amongst other Thai specific stuff. They also use AxMi Green for the IRA (the Indonesian not Irish IRA) and INA. BFP pretty much wiped the board with regard to Asia.

Poor eyesight and memory.
Thanks Paul.

"AxMi Green"! LOL, now that's funny; probably not politically correct to laugh at that in today's era of thin skinned outlooks, but funny nonetheless.:D:facepalm::happy:
