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.

Already done!

Swarms of wasps, spiders, pirahnakeets, vampire bats, and if you want to call them swarms: rats and scuttles. uncut sheets fit perfectly in a pocket box. Link to the picture below:
