yes, they are too big for the hex and the flag is hard to read in both versions (at least for me).

Yeah I scrapped that idea. I tried about 10 variants with the borders but due to the low resolution I have to work with none of them looked right.

I'm trying a new approach from the ground up later tonight.

Swamped with work so I haven't been able to do much with these, but here's a little test of the way I am thinking of going. Still working on the perspective a bit and trying to decide if I want to do rotation graphics or just keep it static.

Nice direction!

The best I have seen so far for sure :)

I would say do without the rotations... Or, if you can, you could animate a small arrow around the counter to show direction of attack etc. That way you can preserve a clean look without having to rotate a pseudo-3D counter and still show the rotation "functionality" as intended in the core concept.
