I also agree that set #2 is easier to distinguish at a distance.

But both sets have the problem of not enough tanks.  ;)

agreed about the tanks, but that's  not my call. 

I was pretty much going with the second version but just need verification that they were the ones to use.  Thanks!

AllTim, what tools do you use? Do you use a tablet, or just mouse? I have access to Adobe CC since we have a subscription for my wife doing photography, so I should start messing around and figuring out photoshop and illustrator.

Just a mouse.  I did try using one of those usb graphics tablet/pens, but it did not seem to make things any better or easier.  No doubt I just didn't learn how to use it properly, since I have heard it can make a big difference.  But you know how it is; when you have a deadline you just go with what you know.

new cover.  I found what I think is a better, more appropriate and more colorful image.  Forced it thru a few filters to get it where it is currently.

Looks like an illustration from 'Battles and Leaders'.  ;)

D you do that in a vector program like Illustrator, or something like Photoshop?

I work almost exclusively in Photoshop.

Since I have been doing this for so long, I have acquired a fairly large numbers of add-ons for Photoshop like new brush sets, vector shapes, fonts, and actions.  They all combine to make short work of most maps and counters.  Making up original artwork, like I had to for the counters in Hermann Luttmann's space games, is what is the most time consuming.
