As many of you know by now having numbered 40K objective markers is required to play Maelstrom of War missions. I got tired of sticking dice on top of my current markers and decided to make some new ones. I like Thor’s objective markers because they are simple and easy to read, but I decided to go even simpler. I printed some numbers, glued them to some wooden disks, and gave them a couple of coats of acrylic floor polish. While I was at it I made a marker for Prescience and some hull point markers. The hull point markers are on slightly smaller cardboard disks. I made about 8 each of -1 HP and -2 HP.
I also painted my GW 40K status markers. I’ve been using them for a while and had painted them a rusty metallic color to distinguish them as mine. They were a little hard to read from a distance so I added some color to make them more visible.
Fancy themed 40K objective markers look great, but I feel like I should finish painting my army before I put that much effort into 40K objective markers. Speaking of which, I’m making good progress on my Devil Dog model. I’ll post picture of that for my usual Monday post.
Simple and effective is good for game counters. What are you using for yours?
<<UPDATE: I have uploaded a PDF of the marker sheet I made. I also added some wound markers in 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 wound increments. You can print these and glue them to bases or any other 1″ disk to make your own . You can also check out DaveWeston’s link in the comments for his set of printable markers. >>
