While there are pros and cons to this type of approach to ranges and manoeuvres, my concern is that the tabletop could become quite crowded with all the PC/NPC Stand-ups, Tracking Tokens, Location Cards, Character Cards, Stance Tracks, Action Cards, Spell Cards, Talent Cards and all the different dice necessary to resolve actions.
At least we know based on the pdf that NPCs/Creatures will have their own Stand-up Cards. I am curious to know how many of the cards that come with the Core Set are for PCs (and possibly suitable for NPCs) and how many are Creature Cards. Also, how many of each type of creature will there be (e.g. how many Beastmen Cards, Zombie Cards, Gobling Cards, etc.) and will their be an expansion of these types of Stand-up Cards (with plastic bases), Location Cards, and Tracking Tokens in later supplements? Will FFG ever post pdfs online of cards that we could simply download and print out on some type of card stock to add more of these elements to our games?
