|The paper counters in action, along with 15mm Napoleon's Battles counters.|
Now I've decided to post the image files I created for the counters, allowing anyone to quickly create paper armies for themselves to test out various rules or even the Napoleonic period, of which I know little. The images are all GIFs, making the line drawing crisper than if they were JPGs. I have left them plain, but you can print them on different colored paper, use a graphics program to color them, or color them in by hand using colored pencils or markers. If you use them as-is, one army has pompoms on their shakos, while the other is sans-pompoms to tell them apart. The leader counters have the French and Russian flags on them to distinguish them. You can change/delete these flags using any graphics program out them.
The counters are sized for 28mm games, using either 40mm x 40mm or 60mm x 40mm bases. (Base sizes are in the file names. I wanted to test which base looked best as well.) If you want to use the counters for 15mm games, then simply resize them accordingly (or use the graphics program's "bicubic resample" function for better results). The images are set to print directly to 8.5" x 11" paper. My monochrome laser printer printed these counters just fine on cardstock.

Thanks and Enjoy!
I hope you find these counters useful. I've created this permanent page so folks can find them easily. Let me know what you think.
