Units have four basic attributes — a raising cost, a maintenance cost, mobility rating, and an attack rating. While a maintenance cost must be paid every round to sustain every unit, it is usually only half the raising or purchase cost. Most units have a move score of 1 or 2 perganas per round while their attack ratings are more variable. A lower attack rating means that the units has a higher chance of scoring a hit on an opponent.

A sheet of these units is provided here in both letter and a4 paper. Remember to print each one on a different coloured cardboard paper to differentiate the different players. Cut out each unit along the provided perforated lines.

Each sheet has an duplicate set of units. The first half includes most of the necessary game pieces, while the second half provides supplemental pieces. As such, it does not usually need to be cut right away. All the placeholder tokens (circles) for possessing territories should be cut though.

Another option is to use a colour printer to print out multicoloured silhouetted unit sheets on thick white glossy paper:
