Gentlemen,

Would like some input and discussion.

Russian Assault Engineerss, German armored AA halftracks, etc are all counters we have done previously such as in CoS.

They are also used in OtO. Do we include some?

Thanks much,
Chas
Yes please.

Even though most of us gets every single BFP print run, new folks don't and some can't. It will be good for them to have a package with the necessary counters. Plus on a longer term basis, it would suck if the package you got doesn't have the counters and the package with the counters is no longer in print.

Same answer as Houlie from me (though I'm not sure I'll buy the module, as I already have the 1st edition). If the special counters are used in scenarios, I'd say a note suggesting suitable replacements if the counters are not available would be enough. Not to mention people using VASL, where the physical counters are not used.

Russian Assault Engineers, at least, also appear in Red Factories.

That is a more or less fundamental decision IMHO.

Does BFP want to act as a publisher, that provides "stand alone modules" or does it want to make a step that you need the equivalent of BFP "Core Modules" to play some of its products?

I would vote for the "stand alone module" approach.

I prefer BFP being a classic TPP rather than providing and requiring a parallel "game system" approach to MMP.

Thus - yes, put these counters in.

I say that despite attempting not to use any TPP counters at all if possible and to stick with the stock provided by MMP. (This is not saying your counters weren't well made or designed - I just have personal preference for the old school B/W stuff.)

I need someone who has played the OtO CG (fairly recently) to contact me.

Thanks,
Chas

We are also developing an OtO Player Aid as we update everything. This is appears to be a good addition.

Quick update:

-22 scenarios are final, formatted, and are at a minimum in some form of initial editing
-7 scenarios are near final, some a little closer than others
-at least 2 other scenarios in progress. More are in progress, but may just cut this off at 31 or 32 scenarios
