Ship Building Has Never Been So Easy Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

capi3101 has started making some really slick "counters" for use in tabletop or pen & paper style Wing Commander games. Each token has been in the silhouette art style similar to the Wing Commander 2 instruction manual. These are perfect for Wing Commander Tactical Operations, and capi is also developing his own role playing game that will take advantage of them. He's composed sheets for WC1, WC2, WC3 and Armada that are easily printable and produce well-rounded battle fleets. Let capi know what you think at the CIC Forums!

Over the past few weeks I've been busy creating a set of silhouettes of the various craft in the WC universe, ala the ships in the WC2 guide. My intent in doing so was to use these silhouettes to create sets of "generic" wargame counters that could be used in any p-n-p Wing Commander project (such as TacOps or the Wing Commander Role-Playing Game I'm currently developing). I'm just about finished with the creation of the silhouettes at this point (I'm missing the fighters from WC Arena; to my knowledge that's all) and would like to go ahead and share the silhouettes with the community.
