I think the thread you are referencing is: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=2952767
It is pretty trivial to mod most, if not all, of the graphics in the game, since they are just a collection of plain old PNG files in a folder (Although I think they are 3D models originally, they are pre-rendered as 2D images). The only difficulty is that it isn't possible to switch between icon-styles in-game without restarting and replacing the image files (but for the grognards, who just want NATO or death, that is fine!).
Don't worry, Nenad, I will always use your pretty, pretty 3D counters!
