Silk Smooth counters!
#1
If you missed out on getting the silk counters or replacing any of those Laser counters, AP is sell them for just about any game on the recent Gold-Club email!

I think I have just about all of them on order at some point. Now, if I could just get AP do do them for the supplement Marianas!

If you are a Gold Club member or you join before the deadline, you can purchase the following silky counters to replace your laser ones:

* Burning Tigers
* Liberation 1944
* South Flank
* Saipan 1944
* Conquest of Ethiopia
* Pusan Perimeter
* Sword of Israel
* 1940: The Fall of France

The Deadline is August 15th according the latest Inside # 134.

Funny, because my 1940 Fall of France came with silky counters to begin with, so AP must have done a reprint with laser counters at some point.

I believe I read somewhere it was partial laser/ partial die cut in the reprint. And that sounded pretty gross IMHO.

No, my original is 100% die-cut and very nice counters.

I think partial laser/partial die cut was when they had counters via laser, and we're still using up old die current marker sheets.

I was referring to the original reprints, not the original print run. I too have the original die cuts.

Found what I was referring to. GC # 121 mentions 2 of the "reprint" die cut sheets are the originals, and one is going to be the new, silky, style. 

This led me to believe the laser era FoF reprints has 2 die cut sheets & 1 laser sheet.

Maybe im wrong.

My copy is from the first run so I really dont know.

Back on topic (imagine that!) I used Jay's reminder to order my long desired BT and Saipan silky-smooth counters.

This IS a limited time offer, don't pooch it!  Dodgy

Peace. Michael

I'm deciding if I want to shell out for counters that may or may not see a lot of use.

And I'm a fool, so I probably will. Smile

What they hell does silky-smooth mean, anyway? No die marks on the back?
