Default Ogre Classic Counters set

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me what the 6 pages of the Ogre Classic Counters set for sale on WH23 consists of and are they suited for the newer, large format maps?

I have the maps that came with the Ogre mini's sets and would like to put them to good use.

Thanks!

Classic Counters are the traditional images seen in the 1977 to 1980s artworks, side view silhouettes of the units. They measure roughly 1" square, and work great on the newer ODE, 6E, and Minis maps.

Here's a break-down of what's included:

Wow... thanks for the quick reply. That's exactly what I wanted to know. Why SJG couldn't have posted that in the item description is another question. Much appreciated.

Also, is there any way to purchase ala carte the counter sheets that were included in ODE ? Eventually I'd like a set of counters similar to the ones in the Classic Counters set but with the newer designs. But from the prices on WH23 it might be less expensive and easier to find a full ODE set someone is parting with.

When ODE was new, they did offer the entire counter set separately. Those have since gone out-of-stock. You can get the set from 6e presently though:

I did see that, and if I add Reinforcements that gives enough to play a decent game on the GEV map with LTNK, LGEV, MHZ, GEV-PC, & SHVY units. I'll probably wind up going that route and wait for other sets to come later with the CMC, Trucks, Marines, Engineers, etc. Although the classic counters offer a LOT of units, the newer counters are so much nicer with color and 3D Ogres.

If I go outside WH23 then I can find both sets for less than $40.00 so not too shabby.

You wouldn't happen to have a counter breakdown of O6E and OR would you?

2x Ogre Mk.III (Combine)
4x GEV (Combine)
8x Heavy Tank (PE)
8x Missile Tank (PE)
4x Howitzer (PE)
10x GEV (PE)
12x 1/1 Infantry (PE, 2/1 on the reverse)
12x 3/1 Infantry (PE, 2/1 on the reverse)
1x Command Post (PE)
1x Mobile Command Post (PE)

Overlays:
7x Crater
?x Ridge

Misc Tokens:
10x ? / # tokens

You won't have to wait too long for more stuff. The Kickstarter for Battlefields is supposed to hit sometime in December, which is rumored to include everything from cybertanks to variant infantry to new structures and even a pair of maps [G3/S3].

Additionally, the Ogre Minis 2nd Edition rulebook comes with some chipboard...a Mk.VI, laser turrets, laser towers, an admin building, a cell tower, and a mystery die-cut sheet that contains the results of a backer survey. That's set to deliver to backers in November, and on W23 shortly after.

I like the big classic counters and find myself reaching for those most often when setting up solo games.

There is a familiarity about them that can be comforting to us old timers!

Yo can also check them out for free first. They have a Print and Play set, too.
