They also have a 100% cash back guarantee for 30 days. That's actually amazing for this industry, IMHO!

This is my go-to set whenever I get a chance - by using the wide range of troop classes, you can get really creative with scenarios. The only thing I didn't like were the print and play tokens provided with the game, so I made my own set. I can email or upload to the site if anybody wants them.

Or, I could jut post a link to the files for the tokens. They are designed as one-inch circles. I print these, punch them out with a one-inch circular scrap-booking punch, then use a glue stick to attach them to 1 and 1/8 - inch washers. They are indestructible!

My tokens are different from those supplied for the game. I wanted a less Arabic feel for the PCF forces, so I went with the ubiquitous AK-47 rifle as their symbol. I didn't bother making specific vehicle tokens - I just designate a squad counter to a vehicle. I also didn't bother with heavy or light reload tokens, as there seems to be no difference between how they are used in play. I used a bunch of royalty-free artwork and derivative work from other images, so no actual Combat Storm artwork was used.

Token Sheet 1: tokens for prone squad, reload tokens, single and triple wound tokens, single and triple vehicle damage tokens

Token Sheet 2: squad tokens, special forces designations, activated tokens and triple wound tokens

If you decide to use any of them, please let me know how it worked out, or if you need any tokens that aren't supplied!
