Default Recolored counters?

Part of my Ogre project is to do some recolored counters. Here are some samples of the work so far. The first two are Combine studies; I rather prefer the first one. The third is Nihon (I tried getting a sun on there but it didn't look good), and the last is Vatican Guard (probably needs work). Tell me what you think. I do have Sons of Old Nassau and Black Rose planned, plus of course some green ones.

The Vatican Guard is the most striking, but it's a bit hard to read with the gold on purple. Might need to thicken up the type a bit?

Re: Vatican Guard, have you considered reversing the colors? Purple on gold? It wold likely stand out better.

Reversing colors is one possibility. The line weights of the Ogre Classic Counters set are the problem. I've tried a couple of other possible fixes but so far no soap. I also haven't printed them yet... they may look better that way.

But since The Man himself weighed in on the matter, you bet I'm going to find a solution.

I did print out a Vatican set and it looked better, but I'm still going to work on those line thicknesses.

Meanwhile, I now have a better understanding of the Kwanchai affair. Someone looked at the picture and apparently missed the disclaimer. I am glad I read up on this. I will not be offering any sets of recolored counters without either permission or a license, which at this time I have not asked for or inquired about. (And don't ask me when I might do so. I decline to make any estimates.)
