SBG3: ships & markers from the core rules

Watermarked PDF

By popular demand, the ship counters by Christopher Jones and the game markers for SBG are made available herein.

Since the core rules for SBG3 already contain these items, gamers must want them for other naval games. So be it.

In this format they very attractive and are far less expensive than pewter castings. The scale used is not exact but is reasonably close to 1/2400.

Relabeling them as other ship classes is simple enough with some blank self-adhesive labels, scissors and a fine point pen or marker.

The ship counter sheet contains the following USN and Russian ship and aircraft counters plus a few generic ordnace counters.

USN classes: 1-Iowa, 1-Tarawa, 1-Perry, 1-Arliegh Burke, 1-Spruance,1-Belknap,       1-Ticonderoga, 4-SH-60H, 4-SH3H, 4-F18 & 4-Harrier

Russian classes: 1-Kirov, 1-Oscar,1-Moskva, 1-Slava, 2-Krivak II, 1-Akula, 2-Kilo,    2-Sovremenny, 2-Udaloy, 4-Ka-25, 4-Ka-27, 4-MiG-29 & 4-Tu-22M

Generic ordnance: 4-Torpedoes, 2-Missiles

This collection of 58 modern naval ship counters should be able to get you started with whatever game system you choose. I recommend Surface Battle Group v3.0. For only $15 you can get the most up to date modern naval rules available. See the Tornado Games products page.

Useful in many games, the game markers include numeric markers from ½ to 12. Other markers include "spotted", "fired offensively" and chits labeled "LR" for launch/recover subordinate craft, "RA" for radar active, "SA" for Sonar active and directional arrows for movement.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
