    Default Babylon 5 ACTA 2nd Edition Counters

    Hi

    I belong to a group that has started to play Babylon 5 A Call to Arms.

    Due to limited space we only use counters (the same reason why we play Wings of War - currently running a campaign of 15 players).

    We have been able to get a copy of the ACTA 2nd Edition rules, but we do not have any of the 2nd Edition official counters

    I know it may be a long short, but is there a forum member who would be willing to photo copy their counters and send them to me - of course I am willing to pay for any printing & postage costs.

    I live in hope

    Best Regards

    Hi Stephen,

    I have quite a lot of ACTA stuff, I'll have a check to see if I still have the TWO SETS of counters I bought way back when and get back to you ASAP.
    (By the way, I still have an awful LOT of minis, mostly Centauri, but also some civilians... and they take up a lot of space just passing their time collecting dust...)
    [Did I say I'm through with Mongoose Publishing for having dropped the three games I was following in their catalogue?]

    I checked.

    I have indeed two sets of the counter sheets that I won't ever be using again (playing with yourself isn't so fun in this case):
    One has been 'plastified' and cut out, each counter put in an envelope containing only similar vessels from the same race.
    One pristine, never touched, never separated from the page.

    The thing is: they are from the FIRST edition.
    (I'm looking on the web for any info about countersheets for the second edition, but cannot find any. Are you sure they came out at all?)

    Hi Beanie,
    A few of us still play ACTA up here (with minis). There wasn't a counter sheet made for 2nd Edition rules, but there are a number of fan-made counter sets available for download which cover many of the ships not in the existing set. Try here:

    http://www.richbax.com/dilgar-counters.pdf (Dilgar ships)
    http://www.mediafire.com/?ezmd22raznr (The Drakh)
    http://www.mediafire.com/?eyfu0frvsjm (Gaim ships)
    http://www.mediafire.com/?f2xntendujp (misc)

    That still leaves quite a few missing. The Vassal mod for ACTA came with a load of counter images for almost every unit in the game, but the link seems to be dead. I'll have a hunt around and see if I've got the file on disc.

    Update: No, don't have it anymore. I did find the file again on the Vassal website, but for the life of me I can't remember how I was able to pull out the counter sheets from the file (I've got a bagful of the special action/damage markers from it right here, must have managed it somehow !)
