Redrew these as vector PDFs for my personal use, but thought I could share them here. I did send a copy to Jon at GZG just before Salute and he said he would try to get them on his site. I guess it must have slipped his mind.

Links for redrawn Dirtside II and Stargrunt II counter sheets are as follows:

Because these are vector images they can be enlarged without any loss in quality.

Enjoy!

@Tim: print them on 8.5"x11" full sheet labels, and stick it on thick cardboard. This way you can skip the messy step of spraying on adhesive.

As for the cardboard, the thick cardboard used as backing for your typical desk calendars that measures about 16"x20" is very good for this purpose. The GZG game counters are single sided so you don't even worry about front-back alignment.

I use a lot these labels for various purpose (I buy the 100 sheet boxes for maximum savings): custom make counters for various board wargames, cardboard model houses printed from PDFs for Old West games, etc.

"Because these are vector images they can be enlarged without any loss in quality."

They can also be laser cut…

Thanks – these are excellent.

Another tip is to stick them on to self adhesive floor tile, then cut them out. It makes a nice, thick counter and is cheap and easy.

I once tried the floor tile trick but after a while the black of the sticky tile seeped into the paper. Blech. Maybe a shot of dullcote might help seal the paper?

Exactly the technique I used only A4, card used was 'Grey Board', I get free scraps of this from work but can be bought online.

Thanks a lot for doing these I might replace the over-worn counters that I already have.
