So far, so good. Got my Vichy French sorted into a 15-compartment container. Working on the French now. The 4-5-7's and 4-3-7's took up less space than anticipated.
I will get them into six compartments of my French Plano 3701: 458, 457, 437, crews, SMC and SW. The half-squads will bunk with their full-squad bretheren. Since I don't expect to see them get much play, they don't need deluxe accommodations.

Shouldn't they be some sort of super-duper hero?
Dinant Special Rule 47.7if a Vichy hero is created. Take the Dolan, Nogueria and Nadir 149 hero counters and place them in the hex they were created in. then make a normal scatter DR for EACH of the 3 Heroes. Mark them with a CC counter if they land in an enemy occupied counter.

All for one and every man for himself!
Keep Going as if nothing were wrong.

keep,in mind,that the Nogueria, Dolan and Nadir Vichy French Hero counters always get their own compartment.
What would happen if you were placing them in the same compartment:

"This town is too small for more than one of us, Gringo..."

So do you add the 20th Century CdG counters into this 21st Century (Warrior Elite) CdG counter mix?

Or, do you keep them segregated to prevent "Cardboard trash talk"?

Throw them ALL in a large green industrial trash bag. Grab as necessary.
DYO scenario: shake bag vigorously then take one handful of counters; that is your OB. Opponent does the same. Nationalities are irrelevant, everything on both sides is considered Allied but captured. I have no idea how this may affect balance.

Work out what to do with the boards yourself - I've used up my creativity for the day 🤪

Good luck!

Exactly what I did. Can get whole OB into 1x 3701.

Very similar to my thoughts and plan.
  1. I'll have the Concealment and SW in the same row as associated French type.
  2. Move the Tanks/Vehicles to the 4th row.
  3. The bottom row will be guns. This aligns with my organization standard.

Yes, same idea. My "?" are almost* always in the same spot shown in my diagram, the only EXC is when I have 2 nations in the same box which I do for example for the KPA and CPVA.

Make sure to share your inspirations with me so I can get them added to the Texas ASL download section.
