Default 2 hex counters

Just going through the counters in the Legacy Edition there seems to be an omission; there are no 2-hex counters. We have 1, 3, 4, 7 and 14 hex counters but nothing for larger animals like horses, cave bears etc.

I think we really need some 2-hex counters. What do others think?

Yes, having some horses, riding lizards, large giant cats, etc. would be great. Seen from above, the art will be less inspiring, but it will be most useful for a 2-hex counter.

You don't have to do the art from above. Giants aren't depicted from above after all, and they're multi hex creatures. A side view of the horse on a horse counter would work I think.

And yes, I concur these counters are needed. Lots more counters in general, but especially for ordinary animals. Some swarm counters could be nice too.

Agreed; 2-hexers and swarms are big omissions

I wonder… how would you do a counter (or counters, plural) for a Swarm?

And how would you track damage done to it?

Just write down how many ST 1 critters are in swarm counter W and mark these off.

Print boxes on your snazzy new dry-erase coated counter and check them off.

The counters aren't dry erase

That's why the hypothetical new 2-hex mount counters have to be snazzy new ones.

Yeah, counters for all the creatures end up being wanted for combat. Horses and wagons and other riding beasts are great to have, but even in old TFT never got official counters.

Facing diagrams for the various sizes and shapes other than 1, 3, 4, 7 are also wanted (and one would think they might vary for some specific creatures). There should be some in the TFT Companion SJ TFT errata article - offhand I don't remember (?) such diagrams being added elsewhere in the Legacy edition.
