Apologies Phil - too late :( Ordered from MMP....................only because they appeared to be the only ones selling it...........
No need to apologize - you bought from MMP. He said, that he will try to lay hands upon some for loyal customers, didn't he? ?

[My apologies, Joe, no harm meant. But I just couldn't let this pun go...]

I think I’ll just continue to use the white ones!!
Ditto. Even if they do get removed at the end of the Rally Phase, they're better than halfway between French and German. Highly disappointed in the new ones, wish they'd used yellow lettering or done something to make them interesting.

Don't be too disappointed. You can always use them as Skorzeny's troops in Operation Greif in the Battle of the Bulge and start a fight about who may move them: By color, they could be German, but what of the omnimpresent French 'Résistance'? On the other hand, they are made in the US. If you don't understand what's going on, then maybe because they talk Swedish... ;)

How many Swedes actually volunteered during WWII and what was their impact? Curious about this and what comes next. Mexican volunteers??

Btw not trying to minimize Mexico's contributions to the Allied war effort. I realize thousands of Mexicans did volunteer and serve in the U.S. armed forces and the Aztec Eagles flew alongside U.S. pilots in the Pacific.

Just wondering where it becomes too chromified.

Just got mine in the mail today. I think the colour of the Swedish counters is perfect. I liked the historical write-up as part of Chapter Z as well. Very nice little action pack. And by happy coincidence I had just enough open slots in my Finnish counter tray to house them all.

That's cool, I'm hoping to have enough space in my Finns box to put them in there too, not so sure about the colour though but I guess I'll get used to it

This would have provided for a more distinctive set IMO as well. Looking at those Swede/Norwegian scenarios vs German actions in Norway 1940 (in the pack) I'll use the white Swede counters.
