Sooooo, Will the French OB fit into one 3701? Assuming the Dinant adds are separate. I’m guessing not.
Should. Just put all the counters you can in the first divided section until it is packed, then the second one and so on. I will guess you won't fill half the plano if you pack the counters like that.

I don't suppose a Dinant only HASL product can be peeled off as a separate product?

Screw the Char 2C. This is what I want:


And I suppose a girl could dream about:

There are always the CH French counters they include the FCM F1. Personally, I think it is pretty silly as I doubt it would have worked very well. Its performance would have been so poor as to make it a waste of metal. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Well, that very question has been put to MMP only about 2000 times over the last couple of years (or however long it's been since they first announced the CdG reprint), and so far MMP have replied with 2000 instances of "no". But maybe #2001 will be the charm.

As a new player I am eager to get my hands on overlays. I see no inclusion of CdG overlays in the reprint. Are they being included or were do I find them?
St1-3 and x7-18 are the most important I think.

No overlays in CdG.

We are putting our overlay efforts into the Overlay Pack, which I expect to go up on preorder shortly.

Despite the fact that Optimistic Perry has been saying that for a while now, he really does expect it shortly after CdG hits the streets.

Who are the other Perry’s and what do they think?

Well clearly Pessimistic Perry thinks it will NEVER ship.

Childish Perry yearns to just play Chutes and Ladders.
Realistic Perry knows better than to post time estimates on the forum. Looks like he started his holiday break early...

One just needs to sort out which counters "belong" to CdG and which "belong" to Dinant.
And then we need to price it... would you say it's equivalent to the $60 Hatten? Maybe $55 for the zip-lock version?

With the preorder price at $135. Seems like you can price the CdG part at $100 and the Dinant part at $80.

I really couldn't say what someone might as for it on eBay e.g., By my count the Dinant conters are roughly 50% of 1720 1/2" counters and about 66% of the 856 5/8". Add in Chapter DN and the two map sections that make up the map, and 6 or scenario cards. That's the minimum for the CG.

IIRC, the most expensive stuff to produce is the box and counters.

The top lid is Croix de Guerre, the bottom is Dinant. This is a sine qua non for anyone who wants to sell me either of the halves.

This whole module looks pretty sweet. I haven't desired much early war action other then the Eastern Front, but with the counter changes and big DN CG, I'd be silly to pass on this; I will need to buy from a more local vender, also.

What are the counters on the 11 sheets? There were 3 counter sheets with 1st ed, CdG. Even if it's 3 sheets for the Vichy, Free French and 1940 french each, what it on the other 2?
Thanks
Dave

Vichy and Free French aren’t three countersheets apiece. Maybe three together, IIRC.

All extra counters are for Dinant.

Whoa Mohammad! How are those who do not have overlays supposed to play some of the French scenarios in CDG that require those overlays?
