Yes.. I have the pocket games from the 80s.. We played Ogre and Gev a lot. I found a personal version of Ogre on BGG that had all new artwork. After seeing some of the completed games that other people had built using the artwork, I decided to make my own.

I printed out the counters on 8.5" x 11" sticker sheets. I used 1" square laser-cut mdf bases that I spray painted. Stick the stickers to the bases, brush on a coat of matte medium to seal it all in.

Now I need to plot out the map and print out some charts and Ogre stat sheets.

And here's the map. I plotted it out on a 36" wide roll of paper. I'm planning on mounting it to some hardboard or foamcore and seal it with matte medium.

I've already started working on making new, larger counters for GEV and Shockwave using the original artwork. I may have to go back and make a set of original Ogre counters as well.

2 bases of Hussars! I got lazy and painted them all like the 1st Hussars and just changed the musician's pelisse and the poms. I've only got 4 bases of cuirrasiers left and the French are finished! (I may have inadvertantly painted the 2nd base as the 5th Hussars, lucky!)
