After once again not remembering to roll for the Unexpected Reinforcements effect, I decided to make a small deck of cards for the effects. The Idea is stolen from the Task Force playtest ruleset. I still have to roll for the effects, so the cards are only to remind me for what I have rolled.
I also made a deck for reconnaissance effects.

The transition from Keynote to Powerpoint (So I could print them at work. No ios there) took it's toll from the image quality, but I'm still quite pleased how they turned out.
The cards with a map on the back are for reconnaissance. The number on the top right corner is the cost. Green number for positive effects and red for negative effects.
The cards with the BFaS logo on the back are for the Additional Effects. The number on the top right corner is the for the number of the effect.
The cards are 49mm wide and 79mm tall. I laminated them for durability, so they are bit larger.

Very nice idea! And a great execution.

I think they are not against the rules of this forum, as they do not contain the content of an rulebook, so maybe you could, with an approval from Wargamer, publish the cards for printing in the official BFaS web page?... Just a thought.

It's a great idea ! Like you, I sometimes forget to play the reconnaissance or additional effects, so I will probably steal your idea. :D

Isn't it possible to export as PDF from Keynote?

Yes it is. I still didn`t like the results so I made a new set of cards. This time I printed them from Keynote so the quality was much better and I was able to print them two sided.
The first deck had to be glued together because I didn`t manage to align the front and back while printing the pdf. I need some practice with computers.

Edit: The new cards are on the top row.
