I know you're a bit along in the project but perhaps you could consider combining a portion of the upper left and lower left "note" boxes for clarity & brevity. EX: Upper left info just put in 15. PzKpfw IIIL; lower left Notes: 23Tn, B. Opt. AAMG '44-45 RF 1.3, N. North Africa, S. Schuerzen (D11.2). This would provide a minimum of verbage but a clear reference to what notes may be applicable. As for the brief historical notes bottom center these could be better left off completely as they are provided in Chapter H, perhaps in greater detail and have very little bearing on play of a scenario or DYO if one has already done a bit of research. Use of common accepted ASL acronyms could be a benefit also such as even substituting Sz for Schuerzen in the notes as this would be readily recognizable by ASL players. Of course this is only thoughts on your project and may not be feasible given the amount of work already expended, but perhaps food for thought.?Thanks for the post, Eagle. I indeed had the wrong counter image in the card. I fixed it.
And, in the few cases that I put two counter images on a single card, the card only refers to the image on the left. It's that, or make two cards. I have chosen to consolidate at the expense of some initial confusion.
Regarding Note B, I do reference it in the upper left corner. To be honest, I am probably not being as rigorous as I should on including some of the notes. For example, in other cards, I do not necessarily include mention of the optional equipment. Just depends on whether or not I have room in the notes area.
Another example: I do not ever include note N, which describes the unit's availability in North Africa. For the users that want to know exactly the note language and any RF# or unit availability, etc. Chapter H is still the place to go. The card is primarily for use while sitting at the game table.
